After hosting the whole last series of his chat show remotely, Graham Norton’s fans were relieved to see him back in the studio on Friday night. 
Graham Norton Fans Relieved To See Chat Show Return To Studio – Albeit With Major Changes
The 28th series of The Graham Norton Show kicked off with a return to IRL chat – albeit with some major changes to the usual set up. 
The usual red sofa was replaced with individual chairs, with guests Rupert Everett, Lolly Adefope and Sara Pascoe sat a safe distance from one another. There was also video calls from Riz Ahmed and Dolly Parton, who were unable to make it over to the UK due to travel restrictions. There was also a reduced studio audience who were sat in household bubbles at a two-metre distance from one another while also wearing masks. 
The new rules meant that the usual audience capacity was reduced from over 600 to 100. 
But despite all the changes, Graham’s return to the studio was a welcome one for viewers...Thank god Have I Got News for You and Graham Norton Show are back in the studio. Talking heads via webcam got boring quickly.— Martin 🇪🇺🇬🇧 (@TheLegendOfMart) October 3, 2020Great to see @TheGNShow back on our screens! Despite the red sofa being replaced by safe distanced armchairs, it worked really well & still had a good vibe thanks of course to @grahnort being such a relaxed pro & great guests in studio & via video 👏🏼🤩 #GrahamNorton— Kiran Gupta (@kiran_gupta) October 2, 2020Sooooo happy you’re back in the ‘proper’, studio way @TheGNShow@grahnort 🤩🤩🤩— Roz Downer (@rozzid89) October 2, 2020SO.

“The reason for the success of the show is the relationship between Graham and the guests, the relationship between the guests, and all of this in relation to the audience,” he said. “Graham is such a brilliant and natural performer, he is a showman.
“He achieves this intimacy with the guests and the audience, and if we can get back to just a part of that, we will be closer to what an audience show should be.”
Among the guests joining Graham in the studio and remotely next week are Ewan McGregor, Ashley Banjo and Miley Cyrus
The Graham Norton Show airs on Fridays at 10.35pm on BBC One. READ MORE: 17 Awkward Celebrity Interviews That Still Make Us Cringe Graham Norton Hosts A Very Different Version Of His Chat Show As It Gets A Lockdown Makeover Graham Norton Reveals His Favourite Ever Guest - And Who He Still Wants To Get On His Famous Couch
