Norton to replace Ross on 2

It turns out Graham Norton is joining BBC Radio 2 on a more permanent basis, after covering Chris Evans' breakfast show.

He'll replace Jonathan Ross on Saturday mornings from October 2nd, and is said to be thrilled at getting his own radio show.

Radio 2 controller Bob Shennan told the [link=]BBC[/link]: "Graham is one of the nation's favourite entertainment presenters and I'm hugely excited to welcome him to his new permanent home on Radio 2."

He continued: "I'd like to thank Jonathan for making the Saturday morning slot on Radio 2 such a success over the past 11 years and, during that time, contributing fully to the renaissance of Radio 2."

Norton: "I'm thrilled to be a part of it. My liver is also delighted that I'll now have an excuse to leave the pub early on a Friday night."

Early morning presenter Sarah Kennedy let it slip on-air two weeks ago about the move: "I've just learned Graham Norton is joining us full-time on Radio 2. That'll be nice."
