The Graham Norton Show never fails to deliver a star-studded cast full of entertainment and laughter - it's become a Friday night TV staple. 

Fans of the show can apply for tickets for the December filming and can even put themselves forward for the Big Red Chair to tell hilarious real-life stories. 

The series began on September 24 and kicked off with the cast of the new James Bond Movie No Time To Die. 

Other episodes have seen Jodie Comer, Eddie Redmayne, Barack Obama and Coldplay grace Graham's famous red sofa. 

The show is filmed at the BBC's Television Centre in White City, close to Shepherd's Bush train station. 

Here's everything you need to know about how to apply for free tickets to be in the audience.
