The legendary Stephen Fry and Upside Down singer Paloma Faith will join the presenter on Friday night.

Friday has finally arrived after what felt like the longest week of our lives. We can now unwind and look forward to an extra day of peace and quiet now that the bank holiday weekend is here.

Many of us will be making the most of the freedom by heading out every day and others will be simply relaxing on the sofa until Tuesday morning.

We have no intention of moving once we arrive home this evening and luckily Graham Norton has another stellar group of celebrity guests joining him on the show tonight.

Australian actor Chris Hemsworth will join the Corkman to chat about his new movie Men in Black: International as well as playing the iconic Thor in the Avengers movies.

The stars of Good Omens, Michael Sheen and David Tennant, will also be there to talk about the highly anticipated Amazon Prime series.

Saoirse Ronan and Margot Robbie are hitting international screens in their roles as Queen Elizabeth I and Mary, Queen of Scots.

The 24-year-old Irish actress has just opened up about the hugely emotional experience of finally coming face-to-face with co-star Margot Robbie in costume.

Ronan was candid while visiting The Graham Norton Show, explaining that the duo were kept apart for weeks while they settled into their roles in the flick, Mary, Queen of Scots.

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.

"The horse I had to ride had starred with Wonder Woman and was very good looking and he knew it," she said. "He just wouldn't do anything, he wouldn't move."

"Then I realised that every time someone shouted 'rolling' he would do a little cough. He was actually nervous!" she added.

Ronan plays the titular Mary, who was Queen of France at just 16 and widowed at 18, and defied pressure to remarry and returns to her native Scotland to try and take the throne.

But Scotland and England fall under the rule of her cousin Elizabeth I, who was played by Margot Robbie.

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."

Westlife have officially made their long-awaited return to our lives, thank the gods, but it wasn't all sunshine and rainbows back in the day for the boyband.

The band stopped by The Graham Norton Show last week to perform their brand new single, Hello My Love, but Nicky Byrne revealed some spicy drama.

According to the radio DJ and member of the group, Liam Gallagher told the band to "f*ck off" the first time they met. Ouch, someone take the lads to the burns unit STAT.

The 40-year-old singer claimed the band flew to London in 1998 after signing a record deal, with Louis Walsh as their manager.

Byrne told Graham Norton; “So they were having a drink in a circle of people so me and one of the boys walked over and tipped them on the shoulder."

“Liam turned around and we said, 'Liam we're Louis Walsh's new band and he just went "f*** off”. So we just f****d off." The salt, it's just too real.

The group's new single is their first release in almost a decade, and it was penned by pop legend Ed Sheeran. 

Hello My Love went straight to number one on the iTunes on Thursday evening, and Westlife even got a congratulatory message from ex-band member Brian McFadden, despite rumours of bad blood.

Hello My Love has been popular with fans, but frequently compared to Sheeran’s hit Castle On A Hill as opposed to “your typical Westlife song”.

Nicky Byrne, Kian Egan, Mark Feehily and Shane Filan will embark on their Twenty Tour this summer, playing two huge gigs in Croke Park in July.

Kian reiterated his opinion that their fans would be “taken aback” by their new sound, according to Metro UK“Good songs are good songs, it doesn’t matter whether it’s a Westlife song or not.”

The Twenty Tour is their fastest-selling ever, selling a whopper 400,000 tickets within 48 hours of release.

The boyband uploaded a short video to Twitter confirming the catchy pop track's release, and the internet went into absolute meltdown.

The tune was written by renowned pop hitmakers Ed Sheeran and Steve Mac, so it's bound to make it to the top of the charts.

The boys will be performing the new single on tomorrow night's The Graham Norton Show, which is set to be a big night for Shane, Kian, Mark and Nicky.

The lads are releasing their first album in a whopping EIGHT LONG YEARS, and it's safe to say our hearts may just stop when it drops.

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…”

We wonder if director David Mackenzie has read some of those tweets? Pine’s name actually translates to a vulgar French term for male genitalia, ironic enough as that is.

It seems like realism is what they were going for, but Pine’s fans may have missed that notion…

Outlaw King premieres on Netflix on the 9th of November, prepare yourselves ladies and gentlemen.

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.

 

 

 

 

 

Good one, Jennifer.

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…

Hats off to Jessie, it's no mean feat!
