Bruce Jenner will sit down with legendary broadcaster Diane Sawyer to discuss his transition into a woman, it has been reported.

It was revealed over the weekend that Jenner (65) will transition from living as a male to a female, ending months of speculation.

The Olympian's interview will reportedly air May, in the run up to his new series for E! also documenting the change in his life.

It's believed he chose Sawyer for her long support of the LGBT community.

Bruce, who split from wife of 22 years Kris Jenner last year, has been the subject of much speculation in recent months due to his changing appearance.

He has six children from three different marriages - Kendall (19) and Kylie (17) with Kris Jenner; Brandon (33) and Brody (31) with Linda Thompson; Cassandra (34) and Burt (36) with Chrystie Crownover.

His family have largely avoided commenting on the rumours in recent months, however step-daughter Kim Kardashian revealed last week that he is on a "journey".
