The Graham Norton Show has scheduled some very exciting guests during the lead-up to Christmas and, following the announcement that stars including Stephen Fry and Amanda Seyfried will be paying a visit in early December, we now have more names to add to the December guestlist.

The Friday, December 11 edition of host Graham Norton's chat show will welcome Strictly Come Dancing presenter Claudia Winkleman for a chat about her new book Quite: Love, Life and Eyeliner. She'll almost certainly have some Strictly anecdotes to share as well, with the 2020 show due to air its grand final on December 19.

Also dropping by will be Derry Girls actress Nicola Coughlan, who will chat about her new US period drama Bridgerton. Set in the competitive world of Regency London high society, the Netflix drama also features legendary actress Julie Andrews in a voiceover role.

Comedian Lee Mack will also be on hand to get us laughing while he talks about the upcoming new series of his long-running BBC sitcom Not Going Out.

Plus McFly will be performing their latest single 'Tonight Is The Night', following the release of their sixth studio album Young Dumb Thrills.

Norton recently announced that he is stepping down from his Saturday BBC Radio 2 show after 10 years, leaving behind his Agony Aunt slot Grill Graham and his weekly selection of a favourite cheesy song, I Can't Believe It's Not Better.

He has since announced that he has a new gig at Virgin Radio UK, fronting a flagship weekend show on Saturdays and Sundays.

The presenter, who also hosts the UK coverage of the Eurovision Song Contest, said that he "can't wait to get started" on his new show, saying that "the opportunity to host shows across the weekend seemed too good to miss out on".

Norton's final BBC Radio 2 show will be broadcast on December 19, while his TV chat show will continue.

The Graham Norton Show continues on Friday (November 20) at 10.45pm.
