My favorite episodes of The Graham Norton Show usually involve the most eclectic sets of guests piled on that sofa together. Either that or the drunkest. Now, I haven’t seen the full episode these new clips come from, so I can’t judge how drunk the guests are. But it’s apparent that a lineup including Benedict Cumberbatch, Matt LeBlanc, Maxine Peake, and Britain’s Best Cook’s Mary Berry and Claudia Winkleman is going to be pretty damn eclectic.
