WHILE DOMHNALL GLEESON was being mortified on The Late Late Show last night, Margot Robbie was across the pond on The Graham Norton Show talking about her secret love of tattooing.

While working on the Suicide Squad movie, Margot set up a little tattoo ‘parler’ to mark her co-stars for life.

Herself and Cara Delevingne went for what they called ‘toe-mojis’.

Graham asked if the rest of the cast are now walking around with ‘toe-mojis’ and Margot told him “Weirdly enough, nobody else wanted them.”

Instead everyone else opted to get ‘Squad’ tattooed on them and people would stop by her trailer for tattoos regularly. At this stage she reckons she has done about 100 tattoos.

So naturally, Graham had a tattoo gun brought in so that Margot could do her thing.

Margot was eager to tattoo one of the other guests on the show and for a minute it almost looked as if Harrison Ford was going to let her.

Margot was getting really excited at the prospect, but Ford admitted he was just kidding, explaining that “that’s called acting.”

Fortunately for Margot, one of Graham’s crew members was far more excited about receiving a tattoo from Margot Robbie on TV.

His name was Adam and he was very keen.

Margot did nothing to instill confidence in this man, telling him:

I actually haven’t done one for a while. I’m probably more nervous than you are to be honest. Sorry, that’s not comforting. I’m not gonna say that. I was gonna say my hands are shaking, but you don’t wanna hear that.

Despite all of that, he was honoured to be tattooed by her.

She promised to touch it up and make it neater once they got backstage. Good customer service.

Here’s how the finished product turned out:

We also got to see the return of Graham Norton’s red chair last night, and it came back with a story about an Irish mammy.

The woman in the chair tonight was a barrister called Justine, who wanted to share a story about her ‘very conservative Irish mother’.

She is naturally very protective of me and my daughters and grandchildren, and she’s always going on about all the weirdos that there are in the world that girls have got to avoid.
One particular day, my eldest daughter, who was only fourteen, wanted to go to the zoo with a girlfriend of hers but no adults. Of course my mother thought that this was an appalling idea ‘How could that possibly happen? There’s weirdos everywhere at the zoo.’
My 14-year-old, in a sort of attempt to placate granny said ‘Well, you know perhaps the anaconda keeper’s a bit weird’, to which my mother, not realising what she said, turned around and said ‘You make sure that if anyone asks you to come and look at his anaconda, then you say no.’

At this point Graham said “That’s a good story. You got anymore?” and Justine declined, instead asking to be flipped.
