So much Graham Norton

Daily chat show rumoured

Graham Norton's chat show could go out five nights a week.

Channel 4 is said to have plans to make the most of the comedian, one of their most popular stars.

Nightly chat shows have never taken off in Britain, although Terry Wogan's thrice-weekly show ran for seven years, although it is a staple of American programming.

On Friday, Norton beat the new BBC1 Jonathan Ross chat show by 300,000 viewers, with audience figures of 3.3million. (Story)

A Channel 4 spokeswoman would only say: "We are looking at a new type of show for Graham, a new type of format," The Independent reports
