Graham was widely praised for carrying on with the show, which was promoted to a new 9pm slot on Friday.

Watching the Graham Norton show and it’s making me laugh. Not least because it’s not a 100 miles away from the Zoom and Facebook chats I’ve been having recently. The show is very different without a love audience and guests on a sofa! pic.twitter.com/Li6T1Hkb2N

During the episode, Michael Sheen – who plays Chris Tarrant in ITV’s upcoming dramatisation of the Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? coughing scandal, Quiz – put Graham to the test in a mock version of the quiz show.

The Graham Norton Show airs Fridays at 9pm on BBC One.
