Last week, on the 15 November, Graham Norton did not grace our screens because Children in Need took up the usual timeslot, but worry not! Graham is back! 

For Episode 8 of Series 26 of The Graham Norton Show, Graham welcomed Elizabeth Banks of The Hunger Games and Pitch Perfect promoting her role as Bosley in the new Charlie’s Angels film which she wrote and directed. He also interviewed Ricky Gervais who is starting a world tour of his show, SuperNature, which has been picked up by Netflix and discussing the second series of his Netflix TV series, After Life. He was joined also by singer Kylie Minogue who came on to chat and perform a version of her Number 1 hit single, Slow. Finally, British Formula One driver, Lewis Hamilton, sat on the red sofa after winning his sixth Formula One world title.

Let’s take a look at the outfits from the show.

Graham Norton

On the show, Graham played it safe with an all-black ensemble with a patterned tie in grey-green. His two-piece suit with a single-button closure and notched lapels was smart and well-fitting.

Elizabeth Banks

Elizabeth Banks wore a black strapless form-fitting short dress with lace-up corset detailing on the front. She wore studded clog-like heels and had her short, wavy blonde hair loose. She finished the look off with a gold hoop necklace.

In this clip, Elizabeth talks about meeting Ricky Gervais at The Golden Globes and she calls him out when she said he cannot possibly remember meeting her.

Ricky Gervais

Graham cracked a joke about Ricky Gervais’ lack of dressing up for his show. On a show where guests usually opt for a suite, Ricky chose to wear a black crew-neck jumper, casual jeans, and black trainers. He noted that now he cares about comfort and his shoes are comfortable.

In this clip, Ricky discusses how he doesn’t get sued for libel by actors when saying his jokes when hosting events.

Kylie Minogue

Singer Kylie Minogue wore a more creative outfit with her polka-dot mesh and black minidress ensemble. The neckline was half sweetheart and half blazer with only one shoulder fully covered. She paired the dress with polka dot tights. She wore her hair tied up. She finished the look with silver and black pointed toe strappy stilettoes. 

Kylie and Ricky play Elizabeth’s boardgame Unveiled and Kylie serenades Ricky with a song.

Lewis Hamilton

Lewis Hamilton discussed how he got his start in racing and how there are no racers currently who come from humble beginnings like him. He discussed how his father used to work three jobs to make money to support his career. On the show, he wore a black button-up shirt and black trousers with black leather, polished shoes.

Lewis talks about his car’s steering wheel and how to cut weight during the racing season.
