Samira Ahmed speaks with one of the biggest names in British entertainment - the television and radio presenter Graham Norton.
From growing up as a young gay man in County Cork, Ireland, to living with hippies in Los Angeles and becoming a household name in the UK, Graham has had a fascinating life and career. His prime time chat show on BBC1, 'The Graham Norton Show' is a magnet for the biggest names in show business, including Tom Cruise, Taylor Swift, George Clooney, Judi Dench, and Stormzy. He also had huge success on Channel 4 with 'So Graham Norton' and 'V Graham Norton', which were some of the Channel's highest-rated shows. It's no surprise that he's won 9 BAFTAs for his work.
As a bestselling novelist, host of a Radio 2 show, and the face of the BBC's Eurovision coverage, Graham's influence spans across the media.
In this episode of How I Found My Voice, recorded on 9 November 2020, before publicly announced he would be leaving Radio 2 in December, Graham shares his unique journey towards becoming such a compelling voice.
