On Friday, 17th May episode of The Graham Norton Show guests got a surprise with guest host Jack Whitehall for the 7th episode of series 25. He welcomed Gwendoline Christie who stars in Game of Thrones and Star Wars who came on the show to promote her role on stage as Titania in Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Luke Evans promoted his new comedy with Jenifer Anniston, Murder Mystery. Footballer Peter Crouch discussed his new book, How to be a Footballer, and David Walliams promoted his book and discussed his recent BAFTA win. The musical guest was Sam Fender. Let’s get into the show’s fashions—there were lots of dapper suits.

Jack Whitehall

The host Jack Whitehall is known as an English comedian, TV presenter, actor, and writer. He is known for his role is the television show Fresh Meat, Bad Education, and A League of Their Own.
