Graham Norton returned home to West Cork to record his very first show with Virgin Radio UK.
Graham rocked a casual outfit of a hoodie and cargo pants as he sat down to broadcast the show from C103’s West Cork studio on Sunday morning.
C103’s Kieran McGeary shared a photo of the two, writing: “Glad to welcome @grahnort to studio @ C103Cork West Cork this morning.
“He’s playing his show on our sister station @VirginRadioUK from here.”
The Bandon native said it was “very sad” to leave BBC Radio 2, but Virgin Radio’s “enthusiasm and energy” was “contagious”.
“I was very happy with where I was, but the opportunity to host shows throughout the weekend seemed too good to be missed,” he said.

“Plus, the energy and enthusiasm of Virgin Radio is contagious and I can’t wait to get started! Did I mention that the studios are very close to where I live? ‘
Graham assured fans that the BBC will remain his “perfect TV home” with his talk show, Eurovision and Drag Race UK.
An adaptation of Graham Norton’s novel Holding will begin filming in Ireland this summer.
Holding tells the story of an investigator who arrives in Duneen to solve a mysterious crime, confronted with decades of local gossip and secrets.
The discovery of human remains on an old farm in Duneen forces Sergeant PJ Collins to delve into the village’s dark past and tear webs of anger, resentment, envy and regret.
The four-part television adaptation of Holding will star North Irish actor Conleth Hill, best known for his role as the all-knowing Varys in Game of Thrones.
