Hamill, who returns as Luke Skywalker in the new film, pays tribute to Carrie Fisher, who played his on-screen sister Princess Leia. She died on December 27 last year.

"It hit us all so hard," he says. "I am not sure I have gone through all the grieving yet."

"You want to grieve in private but everyone wants to talk about her because she belonged to the world. She was just so wonderful.

As well as some of the Star Wars cast members, Sam Smith will be joining Graham and performing new song, Too Good at Goodbyes.
