Graham Norton returns tonight with an absolutely stellar lineup

Friday night just got better

Matt Tate

We’ve been admirably served in his absence by the Olympics, Paralympics, Gogglebox and the odd game of Premier League football, but we think you’ll all agree when we say it will be good to have Graham Norton back of a Friday night.

The BAFTA award-wining Irish talkshow host and merciless puller of chair-tipping levers returns to the BBC tonight for a brand new series, and he’s not messing about with the first line-up.

The 53-year-old will be chatting to Justin Timberlake, Anna Kendrick, Daniel Radcliffe and some new kid on the block pop star who calls himself Robbie Williams.

Norton confirmed the guests on his Twitter page this morning.

Kendrick and JT are in town to promote their new animated film Trolls, which also stars Russell Brand, Gwen Stefani, Kumal Nayyar and James Corden.

But we’re probably most interested in the Daniel Radcliffe interview. The Harry Potter actor plays the lead in the newly released Swiss Army Man, which we can say with confidence is one of the strangest movies in years.

IMDB pitches it as such: “Hank, stranded on a deserted island and about to kill himself, notices a corpse washed up on the beach. He befriends it, naming it Manny, only to discover that his new friend can talk and has a myriad of supernatural abilities…which may help him get home.”

Told you.

BBC One at 10:35, unless you’re one of those weirdos with a social life.
