After a brief one-week hiatus, The Graham Norton Show is back with, once again, a star-studded couch. This time, Graham is joined by American A-listers, Dustin Hoffman, Jennifer Aniston, and Jason Bateman.
Of course, anyone who calls themselves an Anglophile will also recognize the great Dame Judi Dench, British acting royalty and all-around legend. If you’re not too familiar with her or her work, immediately do yourself a favor and go on a binge. You’ll thank us later.
The only other Brit on Graham’s couch would be the suited gentleman on your right. For One Direction fans, Olly Murs needs no introduction: he was a supporting act for the British boyband on their 2012 Up All Night Tour.
The rest of us, however, may need a little brushing up. Murs first caught media attention when he won runner-up in the sixth series of The X Factor in 2009. Since then, he has released three studio albums, including the self-titled Olly Murs.
Murs has also collaborated with Demi Lovato on her single, “Up,” as well as with Robbie Williams on his album, Swings Both Ways.
These days, in addition to his newest studio album, Never Been Better, released on November 24 in the U.K., Murs has also been trying his hand at presenting. He co-hosted X Factor spin-off, The Xtra Factor, alongside Caroline Flack, and hosted World Cup’s 50 Greatest Moments on BBC Three.
