Friday is finally here and we are so ready to forget about work and laze about on the sofa until Monday.
We’ve somehow managed to spend way too much money this month so we’ll be hibernating in front of the telly all weekend long.
Luckily, tonight’s Graham Norton Show has one of the strongest lineups of all time so we’ll be pleasantly entertained for the night.
The Corkman will be joined by none other than the legendary Bruce Springsteen. That’s right, the Born In The USA singer will chat to Graham about his iconic career and his new documentary Western Stars.
Legendary actor Robert De Niro also joins Graham to talk about his role in Martin Scorsese's The Irishman.
The hilarious Paul Rudd will also be on the show to chat about his new TV series Living With Yourself, which also stars Aisling Bea.
Actor Sienna Miller will be promoting family drama American Woman.
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;
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…”
