Where Wogan was the best thing about the stupid Eurovision Song Contest, with all its ridiculousness, Norton was the perfect continuation of his tradition of carefully crafting commentary as a foil to the ridiculous. Going back further, his time of Father Ted was memorable for it's excellence.

    Only if you want to be an utter cock. Where, from my comment, did I even remotely refer to sexuality?

    Can't wait to get it on the Youtube channel then because MM, who always runs without a filter, is probably the top guest he has who isn't there to promote something. The soldier in the tree story, the cycling in Oxford story, her utterly shocking ( and literally making one choke uncontrollably ) some a listers and her remarkable rapport with Will.I.am just draws me back time after time to reruns via the algorithm.

    Sorry it was a replay of the soldier up the tree one. Worth seeing again. I love Greg Davies on there ad well.

    I don't really know how it happened but he is all over my Facebook feed as well. Funny guy, can imagine sharing a few beers in the pub with him.
