The Graham Norton Show

Series 26 - Episode 7



Top hats and tiaras at the ready because there’s proper royalty on the sofa: The Crown’s Olivia Colman and Helena Bonham Carter.

So it’s going to be both regal and a tears-streaming-down-your-face/split-your-sides-laughing kind of a show. Colman is always charmingly entertaining (remember her brilliant story about how she listened to the Shipping Forecast during sad scenes because the Queen mustn’t cry?), while Bonham Carter has revealed she consulted a psychic about playing Princess Margaret (“She was glad it was me... but told me to get the smoking right”).

Good luck to fellow guests Richard Ayoade and Chadwick Boseman trying to compete with these two.


The host chats to Oscar-winner Olivia Colman and Helena Bonham Carter, who are joining Netflix drama The Crown as the Queen and Princess Margaret respectively. Black Panther star Chadwick Boseman discusses his role in new action thriller 21 Bridges, while comedian and actor Richard Ayoade talks about his book Ayoade on Top. Plus, Niall Horan performs Nice to Meet Ya.
