Graham Norton: Helen Mirren, Liam Neeson And Jamie Dornan Will Guest On Tonight’s Show

After trying to turn his hand to boxing promotion last week by calling out Anthony Joshua's next opponent (WBO Heavyweight Champion of the World Joseph Parker), Graham Norton returns to our screens tonight for his weekly chat show.

Yes, he's back tonight doing what he does best, drinking cocktails and chatting to some of the world's biggest stars.

This week he has got some Hollywood royalty on board, as well as a Northern Irish heartthrob and an actual Jedi. Graham is joined on the show by Dame Helen Mirren, Jamie Dornan, and Liam Neeson.

Music on tonight's show is brought to us by Norwegian singer and songwriter Sigrid, who has recently been voted the BBC's Sound of 2018 winner.

Pretty good, eh? Presumably there will also be some embarrassing tales from Graham's red chair as well as the usual hi-jinks we have come to expect from Norton's weekly show.

Dame Helen is on to promote her new film, supernatural horror flick Winchester: The House That Ghosts Built.

She stars as Sarah Winchester, heiress to the Winchester rifle business who is haunted by the victims of those killed by rifles built by her dad's company. To escape the hauntings she builds a house to trap the souls within. It's based on a true story too, and you can even visit the real mansion in San Jose, California.

Dornan will be on the show to plug his latest addition to the Fifty Shades... franchise. This one is called Fifty Shades Freed and - mercifully - it will be the last instalment in the series.

Dornan will return in his role as Christian Grey and even had a bit of a sing on the film's soundtrack, covering The Beatles' Maybe I'm Amazed. Whether he'll be giving the studio audience a tune tonight is anybody's guess.

Neeson will also be on to promote the latest in his line of films that are basically Taken, but in a different scenario. This one is on a train and is called The Commuter. Things could get a bit awkward on the celebrity settee though as he and Mirren used to be an item back in the day.

They met on the set of the film Excalibur in 1980 and were together until 1985. Both have had a long while to get over their break-up though, so it shouldn't be too distressing for either of them.

Sigrid will be performing her latest single 'Strangers'.
