It will be interesting the next time Graham Norton has an ITV soap star on his BBC1 talkshow or BBC Radio 2 Saturday morning show. Monkey only mentions this after his comments in the new issue of Radio Times about guests on chatshows, and the switch of the spotlight from interviewee to interviewer.
"Shows have now been taken over by comedians and the like, who have big personalities of their own. This evolution was inevitable. It's fine to have a show all about the guest if you're talking to Bette Davis or Frank Sinatra, but if you are talking to someone from Emmerdale – I mean, I am not that interested, are you?" Come to think of it, ITV soap stars are few and far between on the BBC, so Norton could be on safe ground. The new host of the Friday night slot previously occupied by Jonathan Ross – whatever happened to him? – admits there is more pressure on a Friday night (his show previously went out midweek).
But he's not exactly quaking in his boots. "The good thing is that it seems ITV have stopped spending any money after 10pm so the slot isn't that competitive any more," says Norton. "Having said that, we will probably be beaten by a repeat of Ice Truck Drivers Uncovered on Sky4." Norton admits he's "really bad" at interviewing people – "we just witter on because most questions you come up with you either know the answer to or are never going to be answered".
Don't tell Michael Parkinson, who in the magazine's same issue bemoans the death of the old-fashioned talkshow. Again.
