Staying in on a Friday night has never been better. After a long week, you can pour yourself a large glass of wine, put your feet up and see who is joining Graham Norton on the red couch. This week Graham Norton Show will be a little different, as there's no Graham. Graham is missing his first show in 20 years to host the coverage of the 64th Eurovision Song Contest live from Tel Aviv. Taking his place for one night only will be English comedian, Jack Whitehall.
Joining Jack on the couch will be Star Wars and Game of Thrones star Gwendoline Christie (aka Brienne of Tarth), hopefully, she will share her thoughts on that Brienne and Jamie storyline in Game of Throne Season 8. Actor Luke Evans will also be joining Jack on the red couch to discuss his latest projects. Author, comedian and Britain's Got Talent judge David Walliams will also be joining the celebrity line up. Walliams isn't a stranger to the Graham Norton couch and always entertains with his unique humour and antidotal stories.

Rounding off the celebrity line up will be former Liverpool and Tottenham striker Peter Crouch. Originally, Paloma Faith was scheduled as one of the guests, but in a last minute change, Walliams and Crouch will appear in her place
For the musical performance for the evening, English singer/songwriter Sam Fender will be taking to the stage.
To top off tonight's show, we can expect more hilarious and cringe-worthy stories from the red chair, although I have to say the standard of red chair stories has dropped.
The show airs at 11.05pm on BBC One on Friday, May 17.
