Graham said: “I am excited and a little surprised to be joining Virgin Radio UK in 2021. I was very content where I was but the opportunity to host shows across the weekend seemed too good to miss out on. Plus the energy and enthusiasm at Virgin Radio are infectious and I can’t wait to get started!”

Along with a host of celebrity guests, fans of his radio shows will be delighted to know that his favourite radio partner in crime, Maria McErlane, will be joining him each week.

Maria said: “I’m delighted to be joining Graham Norton on his new weekend shows and looking forward to tackling all the problems that Virgin Radio listeners decide to throw at us!”

Virgin Radio UK Content Director Mike Cass added: “Graham Norton is one of very few truly unique talents in broadcasting. I’m delighted to be welcoming him to the Virgin Radio family. He’ll be bringing double the wit, double the banter and double the love across Saturday and Sunday.”

Wireless CEO Scott Taunton added: “Wireless continues to invest in the very best talent as we drive forward the ambitious plans we have for our national digital stations in the UK. Graham is a broadcasting icon and it’s not hard to see why he has the highest-rated single radio show in Europe. Tuning in to Graham Norton on Virgin Radio will be the hottest new year’s resolution around.”

The Graham Norton Radio Show starts tomorrow and Sunday, 9:30am-12:30pm. Listen on DAB, online, via the free Virgin Radio app or on your smart speaker.
