Gay comic Graham Norton drags up for Comic Relief

PinkNews Staff Writer March 14, 2009

Gay comic and television chat show host Graham Norton showcased his role as Albin in La Cage aux Folles on the BBC’s charity fund-raiser Comic Relief.

Norton dragged up to kick-start his segment of Comic Relief.

Despite the recession, the biennial event has surpassed all previous records on fund-raising, at 3:00 am so far raising over £57.8m, greater than the sum raised in 2007.

Controversially, during a comedy sketch about Angus Deayton giving his banking details, he said: “f**k yes” to co-host Davina McCall two hours before the 9pm watershed for bad language and sexual content.

A BBC spokesperson apologised saying: “within any live programme there is a possibility that something can happen that is not planned.”
