The Graham Norton Show has confirmed it will return next month after undergoing a Covid-friendly shake-up. 

The BBC chat show will see the eponymous host and several of his famous guests back at the BBC Television Centre in West London, and the return of a live audience. 

However, some celebrity guests will connect remotely via video call, and for those in the studio, the famous sofa will be replaced by individual chairs positioned at a distance.
