Graham Norton is taking a break from his show and getting someone else to stand in for the night for the first time ever.

The BBC host revealed that comedian Jack Whitehall will be taking over The Graham Norton Show on Friday, May 17 while he’s hosting the Eurovision in Tel Aviv.

It will be the first time in Graham's 20-year stint as a TV host that he'll be getting someone else to replace him for the night.

Jack said, "I was so honoured Graham asked me to do this for him. The thought of stepping into his huge showbiz boots fills me in equal measure with fear and excitement.

“Worst case, I will make everyone appreciate just how lucky we are to have him."

But Graham didn’t seem too worried about leaving Jack in charge, adding, "I'm thrilled to know that I am leaving the show in Jack's capable hands. He is bound to do an amazing job.

“I should warn him not to get too comfortable in my chair though, because like a slightly fey terminator, I’ll be back!!”

Joining Jack on the show that week will be Game of Thrones’ Gwendoline Christie, Luke Evans and Paloma Faith.
