Graham Norton fans are convinced they know his next career move after ... trends now

Graham Norton has confirmed that he's leaving his weekend shows on Virgin Radio after three years.

And devastated fans believe they know were the Irish presenter, 60, is heading to next as they speculate he is set to take over Steve Wright's Sunday Love Songs following his death last week. 

Steve, 69, was found dead on Monday at his £2million London flat days after reportedly speaking with BBC bosses - and ahead of a meeting to allegedly discuss a comeback on a new 'pop nostalgia' Radio 2 spin-off station.

While the broadcaster had been ousted from his coveted afternoon slot on the station in 2022 after 23 years, he had continued to record the weekly Steve Wright's Love Songs, with the most recent edition airing earlier this month. 

With the Sunday slot still needing a permanent replacement, fans believe Graham is the perfect fit as he presented a Saturday show for a decade until he defected to Virgin Radio in 2021.
