If a status orange wind warning hasn't already confined you to staying in this Friday then The Graham Norton Show will surely seal the deal.

There'll be some big names lining the sofa this week with veteran actor Patrick Stewart saddling up next to The Office star Ricky Gervais. Many viewers will remember the pair striking up quite the chemistry in a 2005 episode of BBC sitcom Extras...

Patrick will be talking about upcoming fantasy film The Kid Who Would Be King while Gervais is expected to chat about his Netflix sitcom After Life which will be released later this year.

American actress Regina King will also be on to discuss her Best Supporting Actress Oscar nomination for the critically-acclaimed drama If Beale Street Could Talk.

As well as that Chiwetel Ejiofor will talk about directing and starring in The Boy Who Harnessed The Wind as well as providing the voice of Scar in the upcoming Lion King remake.

Musical entertainment will be provided by Jack Savoretti and it all gets underway on BBC1 at 10.35pm. The perfect way to stay cosy this Friday night.
