Graham Norton explains why he is still single
Graham Norton has opened up about his love life in a new interview.
The comedian and talkshow host is currently single – a situation he says he’s happy with.
But he admitted to failing at a whole string of relationships.
He told the Guardian: “I’ve failed all my relationship exams, and yes it’s a different life, but I’m still living.
“You’re far better off finding ways to enjoy the life you’re living than mourning the life you’re not, which is a double whammy of unhappiness.”
He added: “And if you want someone to share your life, well, no one wants to share a miserable life.
“Look like you’re having fun, and someone might want to join the parade. A funeral cortege? Not so much.”
The Irish comic also admitted to keeping many of his opinions to himself.
Asked why he doesn’t confront the so-called alt-right, who are known to be homophobic, he said:”And often I feel like a coward.
“I don’t do the Gary Lineker thing, sharing my opinions on Twitter.
“And maybe that makes me a spineless dick. As the world hurtles towards the alt-right, yes, I worry about that.
“But, who’d listen to me? Would retweeting Guardian articles really help?
“What I see when I do that, rather than change, is a real wheelbarrow of shit being pushed on top of me.
“And it turns out I care about that more than I do about ending fascism. Yeah, I’ve weighed it up. I’m good, thanks.”
The BBC annual report revealed his salary was in the £850,000 – £899,999 bracket.
However it is likely to be much higher, with the report only covering salary and not the money paid to his production company, So Television.
