The Graham Norton Show returns tonight with an incredible line-up

The Graham Norton Show is back

It was the reason why many people would decide to stay in on a Friday night - when going on a proper night out was still an option - but now more than ever we need the feel-good vibes of the best in the business. The Graham Norton Show is back and what a lineup to kick things off.

Unlike the end of the last series, there will be guests back on that famous red sofa - and even a studio audience of 100 or so (the studio usually holds 600). Although the guest list isn't completely immune to the ongoing effects of the coronavirus pandemic, as the top guest will be beamed in via satellite linkup.

The one and only Dolly Parton will join Graham virtually, partly because of travel restrictions and partly because dear old Dolly is 74 years old and obviously falls into the 'at risk' category. But other guests will enjoy the presenter's trademark wit and hospitality in the studio.

Along with Parton, Norton will be joined by Rupert Everett, Riz Ahmed, Lolly Adefope, Sara Pascoe and musical guest Roisin Murphy. What a way to return with a bang.
