The BBC has confirmed that 'The Graham Norton Show' will move to a new primetime slot on Friday nights from 22 October.

Speaking at the Media Guardian Edinburgh International Television Festival, BBC One Controller Jay Hunt said: "Graham's show has gone from strength to strength since moving to BBC One and I'm sure the audience will love his unique blend of comedy and entertainment on a Friday night."

Host Norton said: "I'm thrilled that BBC One like the show enough to move it to Fridays. It's the night the show started on many years ago so it's nice to be back."
