Jack Whitehall is going to fill in for Graham Norton, as the host will miss his first show in 20 years.

Graham will jet off to Tel Aviv in Israel for the Eurovision and will subsequently miss his regular talk show.

The comedian will replace the presenter on 17th May and Graham said he will do “an amazing job.

“I’m thrilled to know that I am leaving the show in Jack’s capable hands. He is bound to do an amazing job.”

Jack also shared his excitement about the opportunity: “I was so honoured Graham asked me to do this for him.  The thought of stepping into his huge showbiz boots fills me in equal measure with fear and excitement.”

“Worst case, I will make everyone appreciate just how lucky we are to have him.”

The 30-year-old is set to be joined by guests, Luke Evans, Paloma Faith and Gwendoline Christie.
