The BBC has announced that Graham Norton will grace our screens from Friday, April 10 with a new series of his chat show, and will also host a special Eurovision night in May.
The BBC continues to plan its upcoming schedule around the Covid-19 crisis and lockdown in the UK, as it announced Graham Norton would return "on Friday nights - not quite as usual, but still featuring the biggest stars and the best stories, including the famous Red Chair - now relocated to the comfort of your own armchair at home".
Although the BBC has yet to confirm how the new format will work, he will likely struggle to get many A-list celebs on the sofa. The most likely scenario would see Norton host either from his home or an audience-free studio, with celebrity guests featuring via webcam.
He will also "bring the country together for a special Eurovision broadcast", hosting ‘Eurovision: Come Together’ on Saturday, May 16.
The BBC said the show will feature "classic Eurovision performances, a look at what would have been in 2020 and entertaining interviews."
Irish intrigue will also include ‘stargazing with Dara Ó Briain in his back garden’ on The One Show, and the premiere of the BBC's adaptation of the Sally Rooney bestseller Normal People.
