TV presenter Graham Norton has been voted the UK’s favourite chat show host of all time.
The Cork native beat out stiff competition from talk-show stalwart Michael Parkinson as Jonathan Ross and Alan Carr landed in third and fourth place.
A spokesman for One-Poll, who conducted the survey, revealed it was the 52-year-old’s “off-the-cuff humour” that helped him top the list.
“Graham Norton’s off-the-cuff humour, likeable personality and quality guests have seen him out-do some of the best in the business,” the spokesman said.
However the funnyman wasn’t the only Irishman in the top 10 with Limerick native Terry Wogan landing fifth on the coveted list.
Meanwhile, the BBC star lost out on two National Television Awards this week after pleading with the public to vote for him. “Graham Norton crowned top TV host of all time” via Goss.ie
