LAST NIGHT’S EPISODE of The Graham Norton Show is already being hailed as one of the greatest of all time. Up there with the legendary Bill Murray and the Lads episode.

Graham was joined by Ian McKellen, Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart and James Blunt for a night of craic, flirting, and Maggie Smith impressions.

Let’s look back on the best bits, shall we?

Could happen to anyone, Patrick.

When Ian McKellen joined Patrick and Hugh on the couch, much to their surprise

Midway through the show, Graham  asked the boys to close their eyes and see if they were listening to the real Ian McKellen or someone doing an impression of Ian McKellen.

They were immediately able to tell the difference, of course, and were only elated when it turned out he would be joining them on the couch.
