We’re delighted to announce that Graham Norton is joining our presenter line-up to host a new weekend show, on both Saturdays and Sundays!

The much-loved broadcaster last week announced he was stepping down after a decade at BBC Radio 2. His new weekend shows on Virgin Radio will launch in the new year.

Graham said: “I am excited and a little surprised to be joining Virgin Radio UK in 2021. I was very content where I was but the opportunity to host shows across the weekend seemed too good to miss out on. Plus the energy and enthusiasm at Virgin Radio are infectious and I can’t wait to get started! Did I mention the studios are very close to my house?”

Graham has picked up almost every TV award going, including numerous BAFTAs, National Television Awards, and International Emmys. His tenure as the UK’s premiere chat show host started on Channel 4 in the late 90's with So Graham Norton and continues now on BBC1 with The Graham Norton Show. 

He has been hosting the iconic Eurovision Song Contest for over a decade, and most recently, appeared as a judge on the smash hit RuPaul’s Drag Race UK. He is also a Sunday Times Bestselling author of two hugely successful memoirs and three critically acclaimed novels. 

You may have recently heard Graham on Virgin Radio, as he appeared as a guest on The Chris Evans Breakfast Show with Sky to talk about his latest novel ‘The Home Stretch’.

We can’t wait to welcome Graham Norton to the Virgin Radio family in 2021. Hear his show on Saturdays and Sundays from 9:30 - 12:30, starting on Saturday 9th January 2021.
