Graham Norton

Graham, ever the snazzy dresser, looked sharp in a classic grey wool suit two-piece suit with notched thin lapels. Graham chose to go tie-less which is incredibly rare for him to showcase his showstopper shirt in purple and brown paisley.

On the show, Octavia wore a beautiful pink Chanel blazer with a black shirt and had curled hair and Melissa wore a silver ruffled dress, accessorised with hoop earrings.

Nick wore a brown corduroy blazer with pointed lapels, paired with a blue checkered button-up shirt with large brown buttons.

On the show, Frank wore a classic dark brown wool two-piece suit with notched lapels.

He finished the look with caramel-coloured leather brown shoes and a smart watch.
