US evangelist Franklin Graham says the controversy over his cancelled 2020 UK tour has meant there's going to be more interest for when he returns to preach later this year.
Despite booking numerous arenas across the UK, every one of them cancelled him after concerns were raised over past comments he'd made about Islam and homosexuality.
After claiming he wasn't going to preach against anyone and instead preach the message of God's love, he took legal action claiming he had been discriminated against.
With those victories, he's now set to hold evangelistic events in Liverpool, South Wales, Sheffield and London and is expecting large amounts of people to come to listen to his message.
"We've gone to the courts and we have won our cases," he told Premier. "We still have a few more that are pending but we have won and it's not just a victory for me or for the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, it's a victory for the Church across the UK.
"I think we're going to see a lot more opportunity for the gospel because of this.
"The devil always seems to overplay his hand. Right now, we've got more opportunity in the UK because of this than we had before. It's given a lot more publicity, a lot more people know that we're coming, there's going to be a lot more interest in this tour than there was prior to us being canceled.
His trip, which has been named the 'God Loves You Tour', begins next month with hundreds of churches signed up to support.
"I'm thankful and grateful that we have this opportunity to come back and I'm looking forward to it," Graham said. "I'm sure there'll be some problems that come up that we're not aware of right now but we're going full steam ahead and right now, we've got the courts and the legal system on our side."
