The last time Cameron Diaz was on The Graham Norton Show he slightly lost his grip. Give Diaz an inch and she'll launch into one of her daffy monologues about dating or - as happened last time - what you might describe as women's personal grooming.
On that occasion she had Richard Ayoade quietly dying next to her; this time Ricky Gervais and Ben Stiller will be on hand, partly to publicise their latest Night at the Museum movie and partly to keep La Diaz in check. Her co-star in the Annie remake, Jamie Foxx, is also squeezing onto the sofa, as is EastEnders' Danny Dyer and Australian comic actress Rebel Wilson. It's quite a line-up.David Butcher, Radio Times, 19th December 2014
Alan Carr: Chatty Man may have won the 2014 Royal Television Society Award for best entertainment performance, but there's no doubt that The Graham Norton Show is the one that attracts the best A-list guests.
Settling down on his sofa are Hollywood stars Russell Crowe (who indiscreetly voted Cate Blanchett the best on-screen kisser the last time he appeared on the show) and Cameron Diaz (who lassoed a fake cow - don't ask - but this time is probably plugging her relationship comedy The Other Woman).
It's a dangerous business, this cycling lark. Bradley Wiggins should have been parked on Graham's sofa tonight but is at home nursing cracked ribs having taken a tumble, leaving more time for Gambit star Cameron Diaz and comedian Sarah Millican to talk in tandem at host Graham. Another guest? Cue a quick scout round the BBC canteen to see who's lurking near the cold cuts.Larushka Ivan-Zadeh and Carol Carter, Metro, 9th November 2012
I recently attended a Graham Norton Show recording, so I can bear witness that it's a brilliantly slick operation and Norton is a master of audience-wrangling, winning us all over immediately and making us feel a big part of the show - though not bigger than the array of guests, who we'll see again in this end-of-series compilation.
Remember Madonna, being her usual steely and scary self, despite Norton's efforts to try to get her to loosen up a bit? And what of the great Sir David Attenborough, all soft and mooning, not over a gorilla, but a comely young woman - actress Cameron Diaz? Just watch his face as he hangs on her every single word.
Graham Norton's best bits are trotted out for another viewing in a compilation episode, and there are plenty of them. The BBC's king of chat (and Telegraph agony uncle) has managed this series to enjoy light-hearted badinage with an increasingly impressive array of A-listers. He even managed to loosen Madonna up. Also worth revisiting tonight are chats with Judi Dench, Hugh Grant, Will Smith, Cameron Diaz and Katy Perry. It's a long time and a lot of sport until October, so enjoy the banter.Vicki Power, The Telegraph, 5th July 2012
