Irish Daily Mirror - - STATESIDE - By sharon mc­gowan Show­biz Re­porter

GRA­HAM Nor­ton topped the bill for last night’s Lon­don edi­tion of the Late Late Show.

The star joined Ryan Tubridy for the Brexit spe­cial of the RTE chat fo­rum, which was broad­cast live from Cen­tral Hall in West­min­ster.

BBC pre­sen­ter Nor­ton, 55, said he strug­gled to get a job in Lon­don when he first moved over be­cause he’s Ir­ish. He added: “I worked in restau­rants for a very long time and made no money at all.

“When I got here in the early 80s, it wasn’t a great time to be Ir­ish.

“I was ap­ply­ing to jobs and I wasn’t get­ting any jobs.

“So I had this brain­wave, that I’d go into restau­rants and pre­tend to be Cana­dian be­cause they had a work per­mit.” Nor­ton Ryan tubridy last night also told of how he dreamed of ap­pear­ing on the pro­gramme. He said: “When you’re a kid, you want to be a guest on The Late Late. I never thought I wanted to sit in that chair.”

Laura Whit­more, An­gela Scan­lon, Bren­dan O’car­roll and Nigel Farage were also on last night’s show. host gets a photo with fans tubs greets Nor­ton last night
