Who will appear on Graham Norton’s Christmas special?
The star-studded lineup for Graham Norton’s Christmas special has been announced, and it’s a doozy.
This year’s special will air on Friday, December 23, and feature Will Smith, Dame Helen Mirren, Naomie Harris and Martin Freeman on the famous sofa. What’s more, songstress Katie Melua will liven up the evening with a musical performance.
We told you it was star-studded!
Norton will chat to Smith, Mirren and Harris about their new film Collateral Beauty, the touching story of a New York advertising executive’s unique journey coming to terms with the death of his son. The film also stars Kate Winslet, Keira Knightley, Helen Mirren, Edward Norton, Michael Peña, so it’s likely to be a hot topic of conversation before its UK release on December 30.
Meanwhile, Martin Freeman will be on the show to add a bit of telly talent and tease us all about that new season of Sherlock we’ve been waiting two years for. We’ve had an agonising number of teasers for the series so far, including three clues on the subjects of the three episodes, numerous promises that Toby Jones’ villain Culverton Smith is pretty damn evil, and the first promo pictures of Sherlock looking baffled by Baby Watson.
After you’ve enjoyed an hour of festive Hollywood chatter, Melua will perform her new song ‘The Little Swallow’ on the show. The new song is Melua’s take on a popular Ukrainian Carol, and will feature on her new winter-themed album, ‘In Winter’.
