Let's take a look at some of the outfits from this week's show.

Graham Norton

On the show this week, Graham chose his usual slim-fitting single-breasted notch lapel suit in a beautiful battleship grey. He paired it with a bright red shirt and a coral tie for a festive pop of colour. Check out his outfit in the clips below.

Paapa Essiedu

Paapa Essiedu is a British actor known for his performance in the miniseries I May Destroy You. He also played George Boleyn in the three-part series Anne Boleyn and stars in The Lazarus Project on Sky Max.

On the show, Paapa looked dapper in a grey-speckled double-breasted suit with peak lapels, natural shoulders, and jetted pockets. His trousers were slim-fitting and tapered to balance out the boxy cut of the jacket and elongate his torso. He paired the suit with a black t-shirt for a more relaxed outfit and accessorised with a gold chain.

In this clip, Paapa tells a humorous story about when he acted in Hamlet on stage.

Ricky Gervais 

English comedian, actor, producer, and director Ricky Gervais is famous for co-creating, co-writing, and acting in the television series The OfficeExtrasAn Idiot Abroad, and Life's Too Short. He also wrote and starred in Derek and After Life. Gervais has won seven BAFTA Awards, two Emmy Awards, and three Golden Globe Awards. 

During his interview, Ricky kept his look simple with a monochromatic outfit of black slim-fitting jeans and a black lightweight crew neck jumper.

This clip shows Ricky sharing a story about an embarrassing mistake.

Jamie Oliver

Jamie Oliver is a British celebrity chef, cookbook author, and restauranteur. On television, he is known for The Naked Chef series, Jamie's Kitchen, Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution, and Jamie's 15 Minute Meals. As an author, Oliver has released thirty-five books and sold more than fourteen million copies. This year, he was made a Member of the Order of the British Empire for services to the hospitality industry.

On the programme, Jamie also chose a black outfit. His look was more formal than Ricky's. He donned a double-breasted suit with a white shirt but kept it laid-back by leaving off the tie.

In this clip, Jamie reveals that he played a character in the Pixar film Ratatouille!
