Graham Norton

This week, Graham mixed things up with his outfit, sporting a two-toned suit in black and grey with his usual single-breasted jacket but looser-fitting trousers. His grey jacket featured black satin peak lapels and an embroidered black flower on the left body panel for a contrast in texture and to tie the jacket and trouser's colours together. Finishing the look with a nod to his extravagant style, he donned a maroon, red, yellow and white abstractly patterned shirt buttoned to the neck with no tie. Check out his outfit in this clip!

During her interview, Suranne wore a black and silver full-length gown. The dress was covered in beautifully embroidered silver flowers and foliage. The elbow-length sleeves were puffed at the top and tapered before ending in a bell shape. This shape was echoed in the dress, with it also ending in a tiered ruffled flounce. The whole effect was of a more tasteful and subtle 80s-inspired feel. Suranne styled her bobbed hair in loose waves and accessorised with oversized green glass costume earrings.
