Dolly Parton, Rupert Everett, Lolly Adefope, Irish singer-songwriter Roisin Murphy and stand-up comedian Sara Pascoe will be joining Graham on the socially-distanced red sofa tonight. The show was filmed at some earlier week in the BBC studios under strict coronavirus-friendly guidelines. However, the live audience is smaller than usual to adhere to health and safety guidelines in place as a result of this.
The Graham Norton Show returns to BBC One on Friday October 2 at 10.45pm. The show will be replaced by individual red chairs spaced apart from each other. It was previously shown on a sofa in the 1960s film ‘Romeo and Juliet’.
