One of the campest men on the telly, Graham Norton grew up in Bandon, County Cork Ireland. Starting out in the comedy world he made a name for himself as a stand up comedian in the 90’s, frequently performing in drag as Mother Theresa of Calcutta draped in a tea-towel.
Making the move into TV, Graham has since gone on to become the queen of light entertainment and one of the best-loved faces on TV. Starting out as a chat show presenter on Channel 5, he moved to Channel 4 where he became a household name with cheeky chat shows So Graham Norton and V Graham Norton.
Next came his big move to the BBC where he has presented endless high profile shows including How Do You Solve A Problem Like Maria?, Any Dream Will Do, I’d Do Anything, Strictly Dance Fever, When Will I Be Famous, hosting his own prime time BBC chat show the imaginatively titles The Graham Norton Show.
He took over Jonathan Ross’s Radio 2 slot in 2010, took over from Terry Wogan to present musical campfest Eurovision, and also writes an advice column for The Daily Telegraph.
