Don't know if anyone picked up on a remark of Graham's on Saturday that he didn't know if he would only be doing the show after Christmas? He seemed to think he was but his script said otherwise.

I don't listen that often unless we are in the car as we were this weekend, but I thought it was a bit strange.

Yes,I heard him say that,Helen and it made me wonder if it was true or not as you never know with Graham if he is kidding or not.

I think if it was true it would have been widely discussed by now....wouldn't it?

I gave up listeing to Graham Norton due to the dreadful agony aunt bit BUT driving on Saturady I put the show on and pleased to find that Maria was delayed so not on the show, Sally Traffic stood in.

I have to say it was listenable, and even GN commented they should replace Maria with Sally Laughing Let's hope they do Very Happy

I agree with nod's comments....

I like Graham Norton. I like his sense of humour.
BUT the show is spoiled by the Agony Aunt section (although Sally was a big improvement).
Also, Graham's is one of those shows (that I keep banging on about) that has been quietly commandeered as a publicity channel for the West End. These interviews with celebs who are just promoting their latest shows are boring beyond belief and put a real 'speed-bump' in the flow of the show.
