Hugh Grant joins the host to discuss his new movie Paddington 2, an animated adventure comedy based on the character created by Michael Bond. Plus, triple Grammy winner Kelly Clarkson performs Love So Soft, from her album Meaning of Life. As usual, a selection of the audience will be subjected to the dreaded red chair - so their anecdotes had better be good enough to prevent the flipping-lever being triggered.
Graham Norton returns to the format he's most comfortable with since his Channel 4 days, briefly on BBC2 and now on prime time BBC1. Each week celebrity guest(s) join Graham to discuss what's being going on around the world that week.
The guests poke fun and share their opinions on the main news stories that have happened. Graham is often joined by a band or artist to play the show out with. Throughout series one the show was recorded on the Wednesday at 7pm before it's transmission at 10pm on the Thursday.
