We’ll certainly be staying in tonight, no thanks to Storm Lorenzo. ‘It’s a night for the fire’ is a phrase everyone will be muttering and we honestly can’t wait to snuggle up on the sofa and watch telly for the foreseeable future.

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;

We're all sitting here, living our best lives, trying to speed up time so that Drag Race UK will FINALLY AIR on our screens sometime soon.

The creators of RuPaul's Drag Race, World of Wonder, confirmed the big news that a British version of the show was coming to BBC3 on Twitter months ago.

Mama Ru herself issued a statement, writing: “I am beyond excited to celebrate the massive charisma, uniqueness, nerve and talent of the Queen’s queens.

Before anyone asks, yes, we would be thrilled to have Meghan Markle join us, as we are already preparing a 'Royal-Mother-To-Be' runway challenge.”

With Alan Carr and Graham Norton already announced as celebrity judges for the show, it has just been confirmed that Ginger Spice Geri Horner and Little Mix's Jade Thirlwall will also join the panel.

Opening up about her appreciation for drag, Horner said;

“I just love how drag encourages people to be exactly who they are. This show has brought so much joy and pride to people all over the world, I can’t wait for everyone to see the amazing queens representing the UK in this first ever series."

Jade also gave a joyful statement as another official girlband princess,  saying:

“I love absolutely everything about drag. I love that it’s art. I love how fabulous it is, how fun it is, I love that you can transform your body into a fantastic beautiful woman… the whole thing! I just wish in my next life I can be a drag queen.”

Game of Thrones' most badass assassin, Maisie Williams, has also signed up to be a guest judge.

The show dooesn't have an air date or a trailer as of yet, but we'll be keeping a look out.

Controller of BBC Three, Damian Kavanagh, described the achievement of the BBC acquiring the show: “Needless to say, we’re delighted that BBC Three will be the home of a new UK version of Drag Race.

“It is one of the biggest entertainment titles in the world and anticipation levels for a UK version have been at feverish levels. With heart, humour and the un-imitable RuPaul, Drag Race is going to take BBC Three to a whole new level.”

The show is set to be filmed in London, and casting directors will be searching far and wide for the best drag artists in the UK and Ireland with massive budgets for costumes and production.

RuPaul has an extensive following over in this part of the world, so we'll see if the new queens will give the original USA stars a run for their money.

We can't wait to see what UK and Irish drag artists bring to the party, but with a judging panel as incredible as this, what's not to love?
