Here's the line-up for this week's episode of The Graham Norton Show

Need some escapist entertainment? Read on...

It's Friday, so you know what that means.


It means there are talk shows on your television by the time night falls.

On the home front, you've got The Late Late Show.

Get the line-up – which includes Taoiseach Micheál Martin – right here.

If you'd prefer something a little bit more Hollywood, you could always check in with this week's edition of The Graham Norton Show.

This week, Norton will be joined by award-winning actor Cate Blanchett, who will be seen alongside an all-star ensemble in Guillermo Del Toro's upcoming carnival-based thriller Nightmare Alley.

Occasional controversialist Ricky Gervais will also be present as he celebrates the return of hugely popular Netflix show After Life, the third season of which landed on the streaming giant on Friday.

TV funnymen Ant and Dec are also on board.


No doubt they'll be grilled on their recent mockery of UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson, particularly given the latest revelations attached to 10 Downing Street.

And finally, the legendary Elvis Costello will be on hand to provide some chat and presumably some music, given that's his whole deal, right?

The Graham Norton Show is on BBC One Northern Ireland at 11.05pm on Friday, 14 January.
