Will The UK Still Be Able To Take Part In The Eurovision After Brexit?


Eurovision Song Contest Graham Norton

On Friday (June 24) Britain voted to leave the EU in a historic referendum result. The decision to leave the EU has thrown up a lot of questions for the British public, but for some, the worry that we may no longer be able to compete in the Eurovision Song Contest is top of their list.

But Eurovision fans have nothing to worry about, we will of course still be able to enter after Brexit. On Friday many fans took to Twitter to voice their concerns, but the contest’s official account was quick to give assurances, tweeting: ‘British referendum outcome doesn't impact @Eurovision presence of the UK. @BBCEurovision, be welcome next year!’

Graham Norton Lays Into 'The X Factor', Claiming That It's Lost "Credibility"


Graham Norton The X Factor Strictly Come Dancing

Graham Norton has savaged ‘The X Factor’ in a new interview, claiming that he’s long since stopped watching the show because “it’s lost its credibility”.

“I haven’t watched ‘X Factor’ the past few years because it just seems so long now – it’s endless,” he said in conversation with the Radio Times. “Also, the people aren’t very good, so to all the judges’ comments of ‘I’d buy your album tomorrow’ you think, ‘You’re never having an album’. You wouldn’t throw 50p at them if they were busking in the tube. I think it’s lost its credibility.”

Ouch. Well, perhaps he should tune in again after all this time, as he seemed to have glowing praise for Radio 1’s Nick Grimshaw – who has just become one of the judges on the ITV show.

Jamie Dornan Graham Norton Dakota Johnson

Just because Jamie Dornan is a model, that doesn’t mean he always had the model strut. The Fifty Shades of Grey star revealed as much during his appearance on The Graham Norton Show last night.

Jamie Dornan had the look down, but he couldn't quite master the strut.

"So basically, I've always had a complex with the way I walk," the former model revealed. "I've not always been told I've got a bad walk, but someone's always commented on my walk," he continued. "It's always been a bit like, 'alright. That's how you walk?"

Robbie Williams Was In Los Angeles So Long, Self-Improvement Was Just Inevitable

According to Robbie Williams, if you’re in L.A long enough, you’re going to pay for some self-improvement. That’s just a thing. And that’s what happened to him, he revealed to Graham Norton, admitting that he didn’t even need to get it done; he was just bored.

"I've lived in LA for a long time and they say, 'If you sit in a barber's shop for long enough you will get a haircut'. Well, if you live in Los Angeles for long enough you're going to get some surgery,” he explained to Norton on Irish funny-man’s chat show.

"I've had a thatch done and I didn't even need it. That's the weirdest thing. I had three months off and got bored,” he revealed. Never has the ‘when in Rome’ phrase been so accurate. Williams has been sporting a hairstyle with a silver streak in his fringe.

Looking Forward To A Very Swedish Eurovision


Graham Norton

Eurovision goes where its victor goes. That’s why, this year, Eurovision will take place in Malmo, at the Swedish home of last year’s winner Loreen. Joe Nilsson, owner of the leading gay club in the Swedish city, is putting on an almighty party to celebrate the homecoming of this European singing event.

“I booked this location the day after Loreen won for a whole week, just in case," he explains to The Guardian, "I had a feeling they would chose Malmö. It's closer to Europe, closer to Copenhagen. "She's very special, and I had her even before she got famous," Nilsson says. "She had a big gay following even before she won Eurovision." He expects fans to come from Spain, Italy, France, Germany and beyond. "Someone wrote on the event web page, 'I'm coming all the way from America to see Loreen and the finals,' he says. "That's amazing." For British fans of the contest, the final will air between 8pm and 11.15pm and the semi-finals will be shown on BBC Three at 8pm on Tuesday and Thurday, hosted by Scott Mills and Scissor Sisters’ Ana Matronic.

The show will be hosted by Swedish comedian Petra Mede, while Grahame Norton will be hosting the live TV coverage of it. He took over from legendary presenter Terry Wogan, who’s nonsensical mumblings are sorely missed all over The U.K. He halted his association with the show after becoming disenfranchised with it, saying it was predicable and not a music contest any more.

Benedict Cumberbatch: The Most Sinister Man In Hollywood?


Benedict Cumberbatch Graham Norton

Benedict Cumberbatch is one of the hottest pieces of talent in Hollywood right now, with a host of hotly anticipated projects in the pipeline that will no doubt make him even hotter than he already is. On last nights episode of The Graham Norton Show the Brit-actor exemplified why he is so sought after by film executives by giving his own ominous take on the usually chipper trailer for the show.


Benedict, the devil in disguise?

The Star Trek: Into Darkness actor was commended on his lush voice by Norton, who then asked if he could present the trailer for the show to see if Benedict can make anything sound sinister. Proving he's a good sport, Benedict complied and gave his own take on Norton's routine, proving the point that he really can make ANYTHING sound sinister. Contact Music is not a website that generalises people, but well-spoken English men may in fact be the keepers to the gates of Hell.

Graham Norton Reveals Olly Murs' Crush On Mila Kunis (In Front Of Mila)


Olly Murs Mila Kunis Graham Norton

Graham Norton well and truly embarrasses Olly Murs on the latest episode of his chat show, set to air tonight (March 1, 2013), revealing the pop-star's crush on Mila Kunis - as you may have guessed by now, Hollywood actress Mila was sitting just inches away. Prankster Norton read out tweets that Murs had written about the 'Oz: The Great And Powerful' actress, leaving the singer red-faced.

Murs has long tweeted of his liking for Mila, though Norton read out a few select cringe-worthy posts on his show. Olly had once selected the actress as the woman he would "most like to have kids with," much to the audience's delight. Apologising, Murs said, "I never thought in my wildest dreams that I would actually meet her," though the cheeky-chappy added, "Olly and Mila has a great ring to it!" Mila - who is in the UK promoting Sam Raimi's Wizard of Oz prequel - took everything in good humour, graciously replying, "This is so flattering".

It's certainly an all-star line-up on tonight's show, with Kunis and Murs being joined by Skyfall actress Dame Judi Dench and Side Effects star Jude Law. As musical guest, Olly will be performing his track 'Army of Two.'

Dame Helen Mirren And Paul Rudd Share A Kiss On The Graham Norton Show


Helen Mirren Paul Rudd Leslie Mann Graham Norton

Dame Helen Mirren and Paul Rudd shared a passionate embrace last night left the audience, host and other guest laughing but stunned with their antics as they discussed on-screen kisses on the episode of The Graham Norton Show that aired last night (Feb 1).

Recalling his time spent kissing Jack Nicholson (it was part of a movie), the Oscar-winning actress asked Rudd to recreate the scene from 2010's How Do You Know (in which Nicholson stared as Rudd's father) using her as the kiss recipient. Needless to say Rudd gladly obliged, but how often does an opertunity like that come up? Both looked pretty pleased with themselves too after the kiss (naturally), with Mirren gladly wiping her lipstick from Rudd's mouth post-lip lock, leaving a flu-ridden co-guest Leslie Mann clearly taken aback (and probably a little envious too) whilst the audience and host howled with laughter.

The Graham Norton show is well known for it's out of the blue antics, as is Mirren when she appears on talk shows. During her last talk show appearance on Jonathan Ross' show, the actress admitted to taking LSD in her youth, although made sure to reiterate it was her first and last time of doing so.

Another Gay Movie Review


Bad
If one must find something nice to say about Todd Stephens' Another Gay Movie, then it could be that at the very least this is a film that shows gay teens not suffering through identity crises or worrying about coming out but constantly angling for and talking about sex with the same concentration and lack of shame that hetero teens are always depicted. It's a step in the right direction and a sign that, very slowly, films are finally losing the stigma against showing gay characters who are this at peace with who they are. Of course, the film itself is a shockingly incompetent piece of crap, but at least it got one thing right.

After the banal disaster that was his Gypsy 83 - a road movie whose low point where Stevie Nicks-obsessive Sara Rue falls in love with an Amish guy at a rest stop - it's truly mystifying as to how Stephens was able to pull another movie together. And yet, here it is. Since audiences have already suffered through not just one but two grim sequels to American Pie (not to mention the straight-to-video Band Camp), Stephens must have thought there was room for one more; albeit unofficial, and gay.
