Ozark and Dibley stars lined-up for Graham NortonBBC

The Graham Norton Show is officially back on our screens this week, but we're already looking ahead to the line-up for the third episode of the new series, set to air in two weeks time.

On the episode in question, which will air on Friday, October 13, Graham will be welcoming comedy legend Dawn French onto the sofa. She'll be talking about her new book The Twat Files and its related tour, although we're sure there will be a bit of The Vicar of Dibley chat as well.

Ozark and Love Actually star Laura Linney will also be on the show, talking about her new film The Miracle Club, in which she stars alongside Kathy Bates and Dame Maggie Smith.

Comedian, presenter and actor London Hughes will be there to chat about her amusingly-titled memoir Living My Best Life, Hun.

Meanwhile, the Sugababes will be performing their recently-released single 'When the Rain Comes', their first original song in over a decade.

Before we get to that episode though, we've got this week's series premiere with Kylie Minogue as the main guest, and the October 6 episode featuring Doctor Who returnee Catherine Tate.

We'll be getting to see a lot of Norton on our scenes in the foreseeable future, too.

As well as his chat show, he'll be one of the alternating judges with Alan Carr on series 5 of RuPaul's Drag Race UK. Then, in 2024 he'll be the host of ITV's reboot of Wheel of Fortune.

"I'm beyond excited to be bringing such an iconic American show to a new British audience," he said when it was announced.

"My first ever TV job was a game show on ITV so this feels like coming full circle. You might even call it a wheel!"

The Graham Norton Show is set to return on Friday, September 29 at 10.40pm on BBC One.
