Guests Who Keep ‘Coming Back’ to The Graham Norton Show
Many sexy men have graced Graham's set (hi, Fassy! hi, Benedict!) but if we're going to get official -- and what's more official than People's Sexiest Man Alive cover? -- Bradley Cooper is the sexiest man to appear the most often on the chat show. And, honestly, what's sexier than that?
If someone asked you who Graham's youngest returning guest is, chances are you might not have any trouble guessing Daniel Radcliffe. However, even though the first Harry Potter film was released in 2001, the now-adult actor only made his first visit in 2010.
If you were as curious as we were as to which musical guest has appeared the most times, the answer is Cheryl Cole. Welll, sorta. While the X Factor judge has appeared four times -- both with and without her Girls Aloud cohorts -- she hasn't performed every time. So, who is really the most-returning musical guest? (Take a guess before you check on the next page!)
The GNS favorite always earns major laughs on the show, but she's also earned a special shout-out because a) she provided a good excuse to resurface this photo of arguably the most motley crew guest line-up ever, and b) if you didn't know her in the States before from her BBC shows, Miranda and Call the Midwife you'll know her soon! Ms. Hart has been tapped to star alongside Melissa McCarthy, Rose Byrne, Jude Law, and Jason Statham in a Paul Feig spy comedy set to be released in 2015.
In a word, Ms. French is fab-ulous. She earns her spot on this list as the most-returning British female guest. She also gave us one of the most memorable moments of Season 15 -- recreating the famous Spider-Man kiss with Bear Grylls... in front of Mary Jane Watson herself, Kristen Dunst.
So, who has made the most appearances -- 7! -- in The Graham Norton's show's 15 seasons?
7 Appearances (Tie)
You can always count on a little dry Brit wit at the end of the red couch (often at the expense of the American guests!) and Lee Mack -- born Lee McKillop -- has been providing it since his first appearance in Season 7 in 2010. Our fingers are crossed for an eighth appearance soon too, Lee!
But wait -- he's not alone...
7 Appearances (Tie)
We're not sure if it's his love of the lager he requests or his simple need to promote his successful projects -- The Office, Extras, Derek, etc. -- but the Reading native keeps coming back. We can't wait for appearance No. 8 if only to hear Ricky's infectious laugh.
Find out which stars just can't get enough of the famous red couch.
