BBC One Controller, Jay Hunt, confirmed today that The Graham Norton Show will move to a new prime time Friday night slot from October 22.
Speaking at the Media Guardian Edinburgh International Television Festival, Jay said: "Graham's show has gone from strength to strength since moving to BBC One and I'm sure the audience will love his unique blend of comedy and entertainment on a Friday night."
Graham Norton, responding to the announcement, said: "I'm thrilled that BBC One like the show enough to move it to Fridays. It's the night the show started on many years ago so it's nice to be back."
Now in its eighth series for the BBC, and celebrating its 501st episode, the show will return in the autumn with a 12-week series featuring a stellar line-up of celebrity guests.
The last two series featured a wide range of guests including Sarah Jessica Parker, Jennifer Lopez, Ozzie and Sharon Osborne, Miley Cyrus, John Cleese, Stephen Fry, Joan Rivers, Kevin Bacon, Joanna Lumley, Rod Stewart, Usher, Joshua Jackson, Janet Jackson and Christina Ricci among many others.
The Graham Norton Show is produced by So Television for BBC One.
