The Graham Norton Show

The Graham Norton Show will continue next month despite the coronavirus pandemic.

However, there have been a few changes to the schedule.

Episodes will start at the new time of 9pm and they'll only be 30 minutes long.

Director General Tony Hall released a statement to Digital Spy this week.

He said, 'The BBC is determined to do all it can to raise a smile and keep the country entertained during these testing times.'

'We have lots of great shows already recorded, but we have also found ways to keep many other shows going so that the familiar faces people love will still be in their living rooms in the weeks and months ahead.'

Hall went on, 'I think that is incredibly important.'

'Our pledge is to offer the best escapism, fun and distraction we can, alongside the news and information everyone needs.'

A description for episode one of the new season reads, 'The BAFTA award-winning host is back, connecting to the world around him with his famous mix of star guests, jokes and stories, including the notorious red chair.'

Have you ever dreamed of being part of the red chair lineup?

Well, now's your chance - they're looking for people.

The official show Twitter account are asking people to send their stories to GNShow@sotelevision.co.uk.

'P.S. Flippable chair not necessary but a good webcam is a must!'

The Graham Norton Show returns April 10th.
