Graham Norton has set a new world record with his BBC chat show marathon - and raised more than £1 million for charity.

The TV host fronted a six-hour show on BBC Three on Thursday night in which he quizzed a continuing roll call of guests for Comic Relief.

Graham set a new Guinness world record by asking 175 questions, the most ever asked during a TV chat show.

The programme has so far raised £1,022,982, with money still continuing to come in. The audience peaked at 1.2 million during the show.

Highlights of the programme will be screened on BBC One at 10.35pm tonight (Friday).

This is a wonderful opportunity to develop a creative project. Keep a notebook where you can store images, ideas, phrases and melodies that pop into your mind at odd intervals. This treasure trove will help you blast through blocks that held you prisoner in the past. It will also help to devote a set time each day to artistic pursuits. Exercising your imagination on a regular basis will cultivate contentment. There's more to you than your job title.More
