Graham Norton has finally spoken about his wedding.

He tied the knot to the love of his life, Jonathan McLeod last July in his native Cork.

At the time it was reported that the couple was joined by several famous faces as they wed in Bantry House.

Now Graham has cleared up any confusion about his wedding guest list.

Graham appeared on CBS Mornings in America, admitting: “The rumour mill went into overdrive, that there was going to be a celebrity wedding. I cannot tell you. I talk to celebrities, but I don’t hang out with them. So it was a very poor showing celebrity-wise, but people thought they saw Elton John in the pub.

“There was a sighting of Adele. Adele was in the local supermarket without make-up. Now most people in that supermarket look like Adele without make-up.”

Well, that’s that then!

Earlier this year, he shared some of his favourite memories from the day itself, which believe it or not came from his very own speech!


Speaking to the Guardian, Graham joked about how it felt to marry later in life.

“I had a joke in my speech: the vows are much more manageable. ‘Till death do us part’ seems more achievable at our age.

“If you get married at 23, that’s a big ask. We only have to put up with each other for a couple of decades. And then I’ll be out of here,” he shared.

Graham and Jono decided to host their wedding back in Ireland last summer to accommodate Graham’s mother, Rhoda who wouldn’t have been well enough at the time to travel very far.

Speaking about his mother, and late father, Graham couldn’t be more thankful to his parents for being so accepting and for never trying to stop him from being who he really was.

“These were Irish parents in the 60s. In a small town in Ireland, I think that was kind of radical that they didn’t fight any of it,” he told the publication.
