Graham Norton has swapped BBC Radio 2 for Virgin Radio UK after landing a new gig behind the microphone.
The much-loved broadcaster and presenter announced last week that he was stepping down from his role at Radio 2 after a decade of entertaining people's ear holes.
Now, he'll front a flagship show for Virgin Radio UK on Saturdays and Sundays.
Speaking of his new job, Norton said in a statement: "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?"
Virgin Radio UK content director Mike Cass added: "Graham Norton is one of very few truly unique talents in broadcasting. I'm delighted to be welcoming him to the Virgin Radio family in the new year.
"He'll be bringing double the wit, double the banter and double the love across Saturday and Sunday."
Norton will host his final BBC Radio 2 broadcast on December 19, having admitted that he'll be sad to leave the show.
"Obviously I'm sad to be stepping away from my Radio 2 show," he said. "I'll miss being a part of the Wogan House family, as well as the listeners and their lives."
"I'd like to thank my producer Malcolm Prince and all the teams I've worked with for a great decade of radio," he continued. "Happily with the chat show, Eurovision and Drag Race, the BBC continues to be my perfect TV home."
The Graham Norton Show airs Fridays on BBC One.
