Here's the line-up for tonight's Graham Norton Show

Who's on the virtual red couch this time around?

The global lockdown is challenging time for all of us - not least for chat-show hosts who somehow need to find a way to keep the content wheels turning without actually sitting face-to-face with their guests.

There are few hosts you could trust as much as Graham Norton to keep you entertained though, as we'd happily watch him trying to fix a frozen Skype session for at least a little while before changing the channel.

Thankfully, the BBC have got professionals on the job and we can expect a seamless episode of The Graham Norton Show tonight, where Norton will be "joined" by Ricky Gervais, who is looking ahead to the release of the second season of his emotive comedy series After Life.

There's also Thandie Newton, who's currently starring in the third season of confusing sci-fi favourite Westworld.

Last but not least, fan favourite Patrick Stewart will also be on the "couch". Jean-Luc Picard has been using his famous voice for good during the lockdown, reading a sonnet a day on his Twitter account, so we assume he'll have something nice and sonorous to say.

Music will be provided by Christine and the Queens.
