There was a lovely red chair pregnancy announcement on Graham Norton last night

Our hearts.

AFTER ONLY A month off, Graham Norton returned to BBC One last night to single-handedly improve Friday telly for the foreseeable future.

Michael Caine and Morgan Freeman were the main guests but, as is often the case, they were overshadowed by the red chair story.

And last night’s produced a lovely moment for this couple

“She’s pregnant with our first baby, we don’t know yet the gender because I really wanted to wait until the baby’s born but she wanted to know as soon as possible.”

Excitement was building in the crowd, we all knew what was coming

“The doctor wrote on this piece of paper the gender of the baby. And I said to her we will open in a special occasion. So, because she really loves you and your show, I feel like tonight is the best occasion.”

Just before he could open it up, Graham pulled the lever for the craic

This is why we love the red chair

She seemed delighted with the news – so he must have picked the right moment to reveal that piece of paper.
