In case you hadn’t heard, Harry Styles was on The Graham Norton Show last night – mainly to discuss his new song (no longer number one, sadly) and album – but of course, other important topics came to the fore. The One Direction alumnus took part in a segment of the show called ‘The Warren Beatty Deadpan Challenge’, where he had to keep a straight face when asked about a variety of rumours.
Group 1 comprised Sario, Curtis, Yazdan, Nick, Scott, Tyler, AJ and Connor, singing with Olly Murs. Group 2 was Clinton, Jordan, Harry, Veeraj, Damien, Alexis, Dylan and Matt, in duet with the legend that is Beverley Knight, who left them all a bit (ahem, a lot) starstruck. Group 4 brought Jamie, Callum, Jazzie, Jonnie, Harry, Ryan, Mark and Sam together with the Kaiser Chiefs – but before we get to the show, both Harry and Callum have pulled out.
Graham Norton has put Good Morning Britain motormouth Piers Morgan in his place and told the presenter to “grow a pair” following his feud with Ewan McGregor. To bring you up to speed, the 51-year-old host hit out at the ‘T2 Trainspotting’ actor earlier this week after he refused to appear on the breakfast programme when Piers made controversial comments about the women’s marches following Donald Trumps’ Presidential inauguration. In an article he wrote for the Daily Mail, Piers said he was “planning a men’s march to protest at the creeping global emasculation of my gender by rabid feminists”.
Gary Barlow has jostled the judges and presenters into position to plug his new Take That-themed talent show Let It Shine – and it’s a pretty stellar line-up. Lining up alongside 45-year-old Gary on the judging panel are Spandau Ballet star turned EastEnders badboy Martin Kemp, Glee singer and actress Amber Riley, and former X-Factor judge Dannii Minogue, making her first appearance as a judge on British TV since she sat alongside Simon Cowell in 2011. “Dannii, Martin and Amber all bring so much to this panel with the breadth of experience in music, acting, stage and TV,” gushed Gazza.
