Norton: No more comedy for me!

Graham Norton says he has turned his back on comedy acting forever.

The star, who started out as a stand-up and played a hyperactive priest in Channel 4 sitcom Father Ted, said he was too "long in the tooth" to go back on stage, and laughed off the idea of another sitcom.

He said: "That just wouldn't work - people would just think 'Why is Graham Norton living in that house?'"

Graham's chatshow returns to BBC1 on Friday with Kate Winslet and Jamie Bell among the guests.

Other stars lined up for this series include Antonio Banderas, Selma Hayek, James McAvoy, John Bishop and Arctic Monkeys.
