Since being spotted on Channel 5, Graham Norton's career has gone from strength to strength. His unique blend of camp comedy, cosy chattiness, and brilliant bitchiness has earned Graham a place in the nation's hearts. Warm and witty with a wicked sense of humour, Graham Norton can attract just about any of the big names onto his show for a natter and a laugh. Yet not too much is known about his private life, and so biographer and journalist Alison Bowyer travelled to his native Ireland, where she talked to friends and relatives to discover more. Packed with revealing interviews with friends, lovers and associates and fully up-to-date, "Graham Norton - Laid Bare" is a fascinating picture of this irrepressibly likeable man.
