Dame Helen Mirren

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;

Prince William was guest of honour at last night’s BAFTAs and even got a high-five from Tinie Tempah at the start.

The Duke of Cambridge was greeted like a Hollywood star when he arrived on the red carpet, with deafening screams from the crowd that not even Leonardo DiCaprio could muster. The Prince then took the time to pose for a few selfies with his adorning fans because he’s a lovely lad.

However, it wasn’t  just the fans outside who were excited to see him, as Uma Thurman and Leonardo DiCaprio asked organisers what they should do when the Prince entered the room. When they were told to stand, Uma Thurman excitedly said: “‘Great! So exciting to meet a prince.”

As the president of the British Academy of Film and Television Arts, the 31-year-old had the lucky job of presenting the BAFTA Fellowship Award to Dame Helen Mirren for her contribution to the film industry.

When presenting the award, he jokingly said about the actress who played the Queen in the movie The Queen, that she is “an extremely talented British actress I should probably call Granny”.

Oh and did we mention the high five?
