Graham Norton (born April 4, 1963)

Graham William Walker, known by his stage name Graham Norton (born 4 April 1963), is an Irish comic presenter. Based in the United Kingdom, he is the host of comedy chat show The Graham Norton Show. Previously shown on BBC Two, it took the prestigious Friday night slot on BBC One from Jonathan Ross in 2010. He also presents on BBC Radio 2 and is the BBC television commentator of the Eurovision Song Contest, which led Hot Press to describe him as "the 21st century's answer to Terry Wogan". Norton is known for his innuendo-laden dialogue and flamboyant presentation style, and has won the BAFTA TV Award for Best Entertainment Performance on five occasions. (P: John Griffiths.

In 2012, Norton sold his production company, So Television to ITV for around £17 million.

Norton was in a relationship with Trevor Patterson from 2010 to 2013.

Norton has two dogs, a labradoodle called Bailey (as seen to the right) and a second dog called Madge, whom he adopted from the UK charity Dogs Trust.

Graham Norton, whose impish charm and quick wit has earned him a place in our hearts, looks back at his life so far. In his own words, SO ME is 'a real romp through a journey from living in a cockroach-infested council flat in Hackney to buying Claudia Schiffer's townhouse in Manhattan, from my mother dragging me to school to me dragging her to Sharon Stone's house for New Year's brunch'. From a not-so miserable Irish childhood to dropping out of Cork University and joining a commune of hippies in San Francisco, from his disastrous attempts at becoming a serious actor to the rise of his comedy career in London, this is a hilarious, insightful and moving account of a colourful life.
