Graham Norton on The View
Graham Norton will do his best to not host a politician on his leading BBC chatshow – and he told the ladies on The View panel as to why.
Graham’s long-running talk show has become famous for its huge variety of guests – which has sometimes led to some rather unlikely link-ups.
Some of Hollywood’s biggest names have sat on Graham’s famous sofa from the likes of Ryan Reynolds, and Will Smith to Dame Judy Dench and Nicole Kidman.
However, with a few notable exceptions like Hillary Clinton, Graham rarely dips his toe in the world of politics by inviting MPs on the show, and it turns out there’s a reason for that.
The chat show veteran took a trip stateside to pay the women on The View a visit, where he was questioned about the public figures he’s interviewed over the years.

He explained: “We don’t have politicians on our show, I think, because it’s a silly, late-night show.
“And I always think, if you’re a politician, you should have something more important to be doing right now than sitting on my couch.”
The panel and audience burst into laughter, seemingly agreeing with Graham’s point.
Graham was also asked what A-listers still manage to leave him star-struck, to which he named Jennifer Lopez as one such example.

“It’s like she’s got a filter on in real life,” he joked, referring to the R&B icon’s beauty.
“You’re sitting this close [to her], and it’s like, ‘we’re the same species? How is that possible? How is there any genetic link between me and you?’.”
The Graham Norton Show is set to return to BBC for its 31st series on Friday 29 September, following a short hiatus.
Joining Graham for his return will be music legend Kylie Minogue, Bafta nominee Stephen Graham, actor and writer David Mitchell, comedian Mawaan Rizwan and Eurovision competitor Mae Muller.
