Graham Norton’s quest for a yeard gets fans talking

Graham Norton’s facial hair has cast more than a five-o’clock shadow on his talk show.

The popular host revealled his impressive, yet surprising, beard during series 17 of The Graham Norton Show earlier this year.

While Norton’s known for his big name couch guests, all anyone seemed to care this time was his glorious beard.

Fans of the show would be used to Norton’s clean cut look so it was a surprise to see him with a full beard.

Norton recently shared his beard plan on Instagram @grahnort posing with a photo of beard model Chris John Millington and indicating in the caption that he planned to let it grow for at least a year.

While he’s handsome both with and without, we think the grey beard look should stay.

His fans have also welcomed Norton’s facial hair plan, taking to Youtube to show their approval.

“The beard makes him look very royal and distinguished,” one fan said.

Perhaps a rename to The Grey-ham Norton Show is in order?
