Graham Norton joins Virgin Radio UK for new weekend shows

Graham Norton will join Virgin Radio UK for a new flagship weekend show, after quitting his BBC Radio 2 show following a decade-long stint.

The presenter, 57 – who announced earlier this month he will depart his BBC Radio 2 role in December – will host shows on Saturdays and Sundays, beginning in the new year.

In a statement, Graham said he was ‘surprised’ to be joining the network as he was ‘content’ where he was, but didn’t want to miss out on hosting weekend shows.
