Graham Norton presented his last Radio 2 show today (November 19), and he got very emotional while saying his goodbyes.
The long-time host of the Saturday morning show is heading over to Virgin Radio UK to present a weekend show over there.
Graham said the 10 years he has worked on his Radio 2 show has "gone by in a blink of an eye" and he said the place was like a big family and thanked everyone.
"But mostly I need to say thank you to you, the listeners, because it's just a gig, it is just a job but it has also been a privilege to be part of your mornings – oh I'm getting emotional now!"
He continued by saying the "greatest joy" of the job was sharing listeners' stories and being part of their lives in some way.
"So I just want to say it has been a privilege to be part of your Saturday mornings because it's lovely just sharing your lives and hearing your messages and that's been the greatest joy of me being on Radio 2, it really has."
He will be back on The Graham Norton Show on January 8 with a couch full of celebrities, including Watchmen's Regina King who will be promoting her directorial debut One Night in Miami, while The Queen's Gambit star Anya Taylor-Joy is also stopping by.
Peep Show's David Mitchell and Robert Webb will be talking about their new series Back, too, and Years & Years frontman Olly Alexander will be chatting about his role in Russell T Davies' new comedy-drama It's a Sin.
The Graham Norton Show airs on BBC One.
