Graham Norton "most dangerous" celeb to search online

Congratulations are in order for Graham, who has been awarded the esteemed accolade of 'McAfee's Most Dangerous Celebrity 2020'. Anti-virus software giant McAfee has researched which famous names generate the "riskiest" search results online, with cybercriminals using the popular search terms to entice users to click on dangerous links that could potentially lead users to unknowingly install malware on their devices. Graham Norton tops the 2020 list, meaning a quick Google of the TV and radio presenter could land you in dangerous cyber territory if you're not careful about what you click on.

Working from home has done nothing to dent Graham Norton's chat juggernaut and the calibre of guests (confirmed nearer to showtime) is as A-list as ever. One of the highlights of Norton's video interviews is that you get to see the celebrities' houses, while the lo-fi musical performances are equally disarming.

How shows are coping without a studio audience

If somebody tells a joke, and nobody is around to hear it, was it actually funny?

Steven McIntosh, BBC, 28th April 2020

How long can "live" shows, especially those allegedly based on wit, survive video-calling and self-isolation? Graham Norton seems to work, chiefly because he's good, and talking one to one, with decent guests, and pauses before question and answer. Plus, he gets to mull on the concept of his own show, the big red chair being designed to let "ordinary" people tell their own "stories": "That's the concept anyway. In practice, it's usually New Zealanders telling how they shat themselves."
