Here's the line-up for tonight's Graham Norton Show

This line-up has a lot of potential.

The Late Late Show is putting up a pretty good fight this week. Tubs will welcome Joe Schmidt, Trevor McDonald, Westlife and the legendary Christy Moore onto the couch this evening.

However, BBC's Graham Norton Show will always make a strong claim for our attention of a Friday night.

Tonight, Norton will be joined by comedy legend Ricky Gervais. Love him or hate him, his reputation as a genius is well-established at this stage. The man behind The Office, Extras and After Life takes great pride in offending people these days, so we expect a controversial moment or two later on.

Also on the couch is movie star Elizabeth Banks, who is starring in the reboot of Charlie's Angels that came out earlier this month.

Aussie pop legend Kylie Minogue will be on the couch to chat about her upcoming Christmas special on Channel 4 called Kylie's Secret Night, set to air in December 2019.

Lastly, six-time Formula 1 champion Lewis Hamilton will be talking about his latest success and whether he can equal Michael Schumacher's record of seven championship wins.

The Graham Norton Show kicks off at 10.40pm tonight on BBC One.
