For Episode 16 of Series 28 of The Graham Norton Show, Graham had Felicity Kendal who is making her musical theatre debut in Anything Goes as well as Regé-Jean Page who is the start of the latest Netflix hit drama, Bridgerton. Rocker Dave Grohl joined to promote the Foo Fighters' album, Medicine at Midnight. Siobhan McSweeney who plays Sister Michael in Derry Girls is hosting The Great Pottery Throw Down. Alan Carr came to talk about taking over as host of Interior Design Masters on BBC2. The musician of the night was singer Jessie Ware, performing 'Remember Where You Are.'

Let's take a look at the amazing outfits of the night.

Graham Norton

Graham never disappoints with his outfit choices and he opted for a classic three-piece navy suit with slightly peaked lapels. He opted for flap pockets on his jacket and a three-button detail at the cuff. To make this classic suit more adventurous, Graham wore a checkered red and purple button-up shirt and matching red tie. This week, he didn't wear a pocket square and he completed the look with his classic patent black leather shoes.



Regé-Jean Page

This British-Zimbabwean actor, Regé-Jean Page is recently best known for playing the handsome Duke of Hastings, Simon Basset, in the Regency-era drama Bridgerton.

Regé-Jean wore a classic black two-piece suit with notched lapels but decided on the more casual dressed down option of pairing it with a more informal crisp white t-shirt but still keeping the black patent leather shoes.

In this clip, Regé-Jean talks about how his cousins were embarrassed with the number of sex scenes in Bridgerton.

Dave Grohl

American musician, singer, and songwriter, Dave Grohl is known for being the drummer for the rock band Nirvana and founder of the long-established band Foo Fighters that has been around since the 1990s. 

Dave wore a plain black button-up shirt with a black t-shirt underneath and he has grown out his hair and beard. He wore a pair of stylish black glasses to complete his look. 

In this clip, Dave talks about continuing a show in Sweden when he'd broken his leg.

Felicity Kendal 

English actress Felicity Kendal is most known for her role as Barbara Good in the 1975 television series called The Good Life and more recently in Dancing with the Stars but she's now transitioning into musical theatre.

Felicity wore a two-piece black trouser suit with more relaxed trousers tucked into shiny black leather combat-style boots. She wore a plain black shirt and a scarf with a red lip print. She accessorised with bracelets in silver, gold, and black tones.


Siobhan McSweeney

Siobhan McSweeney is an Irish actress who is known most popularly for her role in Derry Girls

Siobhan wore a black, orange, and white floral print dress with matching orange and black trainers underneath. Unlike in the show, she has short blonde hair and accessorised with gold flower earrings and bright red lipstick.


Alan Carr

Alan Carr is an English comedian, television personality, radio presenter, and writer and is known for many roles including being a judge on RuPaul's Drag Race UK. This year he is hosting Interior Design Masters with Alan Carr. 

Alan wore a stylish two-piece red suit with notched lapels. He wrote a black button-up shirt with red polka dots that matched the suit perfectly and he accessorised with his signature glasses and a gold brooch. He finished the look with blue socks and black velvet Louboutin loafers.

In this clip, a virtual audience member tells the story of working at a bar in a theatre production where Graham Norton forgot to pay for the drinks and he tipped Alan out of the red chair!
