Graham Norton fans left heartbroken as star announces devastating news

Television presenter and radio host Graham Norton has announced his departure from the Virgin Radio UK weekend show after three years, leaving fans in shock. Graham has been co-hosting the 9:30 am to 12:30 pm slot on the radio alongside Maria McErlane since 2021.

The surprising revelation was made live on air during his show on Saturday 24 February. Addressing his loyal listeners, he stated, “It is my final weekend of shows here at Virgin Radio.” While confirming that he won’t be parting ways with Virgin Radio entirely, he will be stepping away from his current radio show with immediate effect.

Fans took to X, formerly known as Twitter, to express their astonishment at the news. One fan wrote: “Good grief, first of all Steve Wright dies… Now, Graham Norton is leaving his weekend slots on Virgin Radio. I don’t know how I’m going to cope without Graham’s Guides with @mariamcerlane every Saturday and Sunday.”

Another added: “Waking up to hear Graham Norton is not going to be part of my weekends anymore is a serious kick in the ass. I will seriously miss you but can understand why you want your weekends back. #GrahamNorton.”

A third expressed: “Gutted to hear Graham Norton is ending his weekend shows on Virgin Radio. A regular listener since he started there (and previously on R2 obvs) – as he’s a warm funny and engaging listen. Plus a good radio interviewer, something that’s very underrated.”
