The weekend is finally here and we honestly couldn’t be happier. We are so ready to relax and leave the stress of the past week behind us.
We have certainly got that Friday feeling but we honestly haven’t got the energy to do anything other than sprawl across the sofa for the foreseeable future.
As per usual, we’ll be tuning into everyone’s favourite Corkman Graham Norton and the presenter has got some pretty brilliant guests this week.
The legendary Stephen Fry and Upside Down singer Paloma Faith will join the presenter on Friday night.
Fleabag fans will be overjoyed to hear that the iconic 'hot priest' in the comedy series is set to make an appearance. That’s right, Irish actor Andrew Scott will also chat to Graham about his roles in Fleabag and most recently, Black Mirror.
Let's not forget that Norton actually appeared on the original version of All Stars season two back in 2016.
He said he has been a fan of the show forever; "Becoming part of the Drag Race family makes me ridiculously happy! I can't wait to see what the UK drag queens bring to the party, but they better werk!"
In the video announcement on Twitter today, Graham joked "maybe this is what the UK's good at."
For the Drag Race UK grand finale, both Norton and Carr will appear on the judging panel.
The actress explained: "Mary and Elizabeth never actually met so we took a bit of artistic license and lied about what really happened."
"We only met once in the film and because of that Margot and I stayed apart so we didn't know what each other looked like. When we finally met for the scene we cried. It was very emotional," she continued.
The Lady Bird actress also spoke about her time working with animals on the set of the period piece, which proved challenging.
Speaking of the relationship between Mary and Elizabeth on ITV's This Morning, Ronan said;
"Elizabeth, is this shell of her former self – she’s completely not human, Mary is bloody and dirty, it’s two women meeting who have been pushed to the very limit."
"We asked for it (the separation), it was a cool experiment to stay apart, we didn't know what the other person looked like… we were revealed to each other the shock of seeing the visual of what they looked like," she continued.
"How we felt as actors after three weeks of being kept apart was how Mary and Elizabeth would have felt, it gave us so much adrenaline and emotion."
Hollywood actor Chris Pine paid Graham Norton a visit the other day, and boy did he cause a stir, much like his role in the new flick Outlaw King, in which Pine shared more than a little of himself.
Norton, never one to beat around the bush, launched into the talk show by addressing the fan frenzy surrounding the 38-year-old Star Trek actor’s role as Robert the Bruce in the new Netflix film.
To put it bluntly, Chris Pine has a scene with FULL FRONTAL NUDITY. Yup, you read that right.
What a time to be alive.
“There’s a scene in the film where I bare the full Monty and, yeah, that seemed to get a lot of attention,” Pine comments. Attention is one word for it, obsession is another. Fans have lost their minds over his crown jewels, and they aren’t afraid to let him know about it either.
Rami Malek and Sally Field were also present as guests on the couch, and they most definitely enjoyed themselves reading the tweets sent in about Chris Pine.
Sally Field, being the hero that she is, schooled Chris Pine on the fact it's been pretty much entirely women who have been baring all for years, hence why the world is freaking out when a man does it.
While speaking to The Hollywood Reporter earlier, the actor stated that the nudity was necessary to convey that his 14th century character in Outlaw King was still just a living thing underneath it all.
"There's so much beheading in this, and yet people want to talk about my penis," he continued, while at the Toronto Film Festival.
"Underneath the Emperor's clothes is a muling, puking little kid who was once upon a time just rolling around in the mud and a child. The idea that underneath every prime minister, and president, and ruling leader that we give power to is someone that is just an animal…”
Remember that time you disrespected a culture's beliefs and then boasted about it on television?
Yeah us neither, but that's because we're not Jennifer Lawrence.
After appearing on The Graham Norton Show last week, the Oscar-winner has come in for serious criticism on social media, and it's not hard to see why.
While reflecting on the filming of Passengers in Hawaii, Jennifer revealed that she had used sacred stones to 'scratch her butt'… much to the clear surprise of her fellow guests.
"We were filming in Hawaii and there were sacred rocks," she began. "And they were, I don't know, ancestors, who knows? They were sacred and you're not supposed to sit on them because you're not suppose to expose your genitalia to them."
"I, however, was in a wetsuit for this whole shoot, and oh my God they were so good for butt-itching," she continued.
"And one rock that I was butt-scratching ending up coming loose and there was a giant boulder and it rolled down this mountain and almost killed our sound guy. And all the Hawaiins were like 'Its the curse!' and I was like 'I'm your curse.'"
Taking to Twitter to share their disgust with the star's story, members of the public had their say.
Another reason Jennifer Lawrence is so annoying. Knowingly messes with something sacred to Hawiians. Then brags and makes a joke about it. https://t.co/EB6VFz0JzN
Fans of The Graham Norton Show will be devastated to hear that its host, Graham Norton is considering retiring in the not so distant future.
The 52-year-old Cork native admitted that he wants to retire well before he turns 60. Speaking to his Radio 2 co-presenter Maria McErlane, Graham explained that, “You want to get out when people are still watching your show.”
“The thing nobody wants to do is the inching backwards, where you are going, ‘Yes the cast of TOWIE can come on.’ I’m not jumping tomorrow but it is in my head.”
The former Father Ted star has had his own chat show for 18 years. The BBC show has ran since 2007. His popular couch has sat many of the world’s biggest stars, from Robert de Niro, to Russel Crowe and Sandra Bullock.
He explains how he wouldn’t consider continuing the show if he could no longer get the best guests, which he says, is unfortunately inevitable at some point.
“When it comes to chat show wars, yes you always try and bag the biggest guests and at the moment we do seem to be having a good run of it. But these things go in cycles. That will turn and change.”
From Mark Wahlberg caressing Graham’s chest, to the sexy trio of Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy and Hugh Jackman dancing to Blurred Lines and of course, the infamous red chair, this is one show that we would be devastated to say goodbye to.
Grammy-award nominated singer Jessie J wowed fellow guests on The Graham Norton Show and stunned viewers by treating us all to a rather unusual party trick this weekend.
Encouraged by mischievous host, Graham, the feisty singer revealed that her trick was singing with her mouth closed and it's certainly…something!
The Bang Bang singer didn't need much encouragement to show off her rather unique trick either.
Explaining that she had discovered it as a child, the 26-year-old singer, who came across as both charming and effortlessly funny, pursed her lips together, blew out her cheeks and treated us to a rather questionable performance of Bang Bang.
As party tricks go, we weren't sure how impressed we were, but then we gave it a go…
