Comic Relief’s Big Chat with Graham Norton

Comic Relief’s Big Chat with Graham Norton

Graham Norton’s marathon talk show The Big Chat took place live on BBC Three this week.

The host & comedian took over the channel from 7pm to 1am on Thursday with a live talk show in aid of Comic Relief.

Over £1 million was raised throughout the show (which stayed on air 15 minutes after 1am to reach the mammoth target) – £1,022,982 to be precise.

The money will help people at home and in Africa.

Graham also successfully broke the world record for the most questions asked on a TV chat show (which required the guests to give answers of at least five words to be counted towards the record total).

There were a huge number of guests interviewed & performing on The Big Chat including Terry Wogan, Russell Tovey, Jimmy Carr, Martin Freeman, Keith Lemon, Louis Smith, Warwick Davis, James Nesbitt, Example, Paloma Faith, Hurts and Laura Mvula.

Radio 1 DJ Greg James did some outside broadcast linkups from the Top Of The Pops star bar playing games with celebrities backstage & some candid short interviews.

Greg was also outside BBC Television Centre with the “Kissing Booth” with the help of comedian Angelos Epithemiou – several celebrities including Denis Van Outen took inside a kissing booth behind Perspex & kissed members of the public on the outside.

BBC1 aired a 1-hour highlights programme last night which can be watched below whilst available, but if you’d like to watch the whole night from BBC Three click here.
