The BBC has finally confirmed when The Graham Norton Show will be returning to our screens, and it's sooner than you might think.

We've been lost without our weekly dose of the Cork native's dry wit and white wine, as well as his illustrious guests and endless red chair banter. 

The BAFTA and TV Choice Award-winning chat show will be back for a new series (number 26) on Friday, September 27 on BBC One at 10:35pm.

Joining Graham on the red couch will be Oscar-winning actress Dame Helen Mirren, who will promote her new TV drama Catherine the Great; comedian and actor Jack Whitehall; documentary maker Simon Reeve; and the legendary RuPaul.

The iconic drag queen will be bringing his hit show RuPaul's Drag Race UK to the BBC on October 3, which should prove an instant hit judging by how incredibly successful the US version has been.

The music of the evening will be provided by former Fifth Harmony bandmember NORMANI, who will perform her new single Motivation.

The Graham Norton Show has been on air for over 10 years, if you can believe how fast that time went.

Some of the most hilarious and memorable TV moments and interviews in chat show history have taken place on the host's fluffy red couch. 

Irish comedian and Eurovision presenter Graham has been on his summer holidays, and deserves the break, but the show will run from September until February this year and then from April until June.

While we wait for September 27, let's enjoy some of last season's funniest moments and put our feet up;

Ellen DeGeneres has generated controversy by throwing her support behind comedian Kevin Hart, who was forced to step down as the host of the 2019 Academy Awards following accusations of homophobia.

Hart appeared on The Ellen Show for a full hour to promote his new film, The Upside, and to defend his decision to step down as the Oscars host following the re-surfacing of years-old tweets and quotes. 

Ellen interviewed the comedian and according to Variety, said the producers of the Academy Awards "admitted to possibly mishandling Hart's departure” and would be “emphatic” to see him return.

The popular chat show host, and former host of the awards ceremony herself declared; “We want him to host. Whatever we can do, we want him to host.”

He spoke about the issue uninterrupted for nearly six minutes, a rarity on US television, and told Ellen that the Oscars was; "…one of the highest of highs, simply because there hasn't been a lot of African Americans that have been able to do it."

Saying it was "unreal" to be asked to host the coveted awards ceremony on ABC this February, he described the onslaught of social media backlash which followed his appointment and later led to his stepping down;

"To get the moment, celebrate the moment—'Oh, my God! I can't believe it's happen!'—and then the next morning after a day full of congratulations and celebrations, I'm hit with an onslaught on social media of my past coming back up again."

"Literally, the next morning! Not even a full 24 hours to glow in the glory of 'Kevin Hart Is Hosting This Year's Oscars,'" the comic described.

"When it happened, my first thought is, 'I'm going to ignore it. I'm going to ignore it because it's 10 years old. This is stuff I've addressed. I've talked about this. This isn't new. I've addressed it! I've apologised for it. I'm not going to pay it any mind.'"

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by Kevin Hart (@kevinhart4real) on

His controversial tweets were between 2009 and 2011, and the now deleted post reads; “Yo if my son comes home & try’s 2 play with my daughters doll house I’m going 2 break it over his head & say n my voice ‘stop that’s gay’.”

The interview is broadcasting on today's episode of Ellen, with the host saying she believes in "second chances", and believes he deserves to host.

“It’s all they ever wanted him to do, and he’s doing it in spades. So now he should be able to come back on his own terms."

She has incredible influence in the public eye and within the awards circuit herself, so who knows what could happen?

Jeremy Kyle, bless him, has to put up with a whole load of major drama on his famously addictive morning show. 

And today was certainly no different.

In a particularly delightful segment entitled "I didn't sleep with your brother behind your dad's back," a young male guest, Jamie, complains that his glamorous stepmother, Bev, has been unfaithful.

Although Bev insists that she needs a walking stick to help her get around, Jamie's not convinced. In fact, he goes on to claim that she's something of a party animal who regularly performs a particularly sexy dance move – the 'slut drop'.

When a hapless Mr Kyle asks what a 'slut drop,' is (it's OK, Jezza, we didn't know either) his guest happily obliges with a live demonstration. 

Taking to the floor, Jamie widens his stance before squatting down to the ground and then popping back up again – much to the delight of the gathered studio spectators. 

Intrigued, Jeremy decides to give it a go himself – telling his fans that he's "never gone that low before".

The audience goes wild in response to the ITV presenter's resulting moves (we can't say we blame them) – and Twitter predictably reacted with glee too.

One fan stated: "Thought he would rip his trousers doing a slut drop. They were very hugging trousers this morning." Another called the moment "Oscar-worthy".

However, Jeremy mightn't be slut dropping again any time soon: afterwards, the 50-year-old chat show host clutched his back and complained that he thought he'd "pulled a muscle".

True Blood actress Anna Paquin left legendary chat show host Larry King a little red in the face after he asked her if she was ‘still’ bisexual.

The actress – who is married to her co-star Stephen Moyer – recently revealed that she was bisexual.

In a recent interview, 80-year-old Larry asked her, "Are you a non-practicing bisexual?"

"Well, I mean, I am married to my husband, and we happy monogamously married," the Oscar winner, 32, replied. 

"But you were bisexual?" King continued. 

"Well, I don't think it's a past tense thing," Anna answered, laughing. "Are you still straight if you're with somebody? Doesn't mean you're not, if you were to break up with them or you were to die. It doesn't prevent your sexuality from existing. It doesn't really work like that." 

A red-faced Larry quickly moved on, asking more about her recent achievements in LGBT rights. 

Well said Anna! That's him told!

Just in case you missed Graham Norton this weekend, Miriam Margolyes made quite the stir by claiming she has no idea who either of the other guests, Dominic Cooper and Lily Allen, were.

When asked by Graham if she had seen Dominic in Mamma Mia, the actress exclaimed: “Oh that’s a dreadful film!”

She didn’t stop there and told Lily not to interrupt her and called her “bitchy” when Lily threw a girl off the red chair.
