Not all guests will entertain everyone, but one man who has been branded as Graham Norton's least favourite guest has been revealed.

Speaking this week, Norton said that iconic actor Robert De Niro is bottom of the list of his guests as he is "not a storyteller, or very verbal."

The chat-show host also said that 75 year old is "a benign presence."

This weekend, Norton will sit down with Whoppi Goldberg, Jamie Dornan, Rosamund Pike and South Korean pop group BTS.

Speaking on ITV's This Morning, Norton revealed his struggle to identify as Irish.

When asked by Philip Schofield about the issue, the 55 year old outlined why he has had problems:

"You were kinda made to feel like that in a way, I grew up in Southern Ireland as a Protestant, only about three or four percent of the population are Protestant."

"So, there’s a thing in Ireland where people would sign letters to newspapers, so and so, a good Irish Catholic. And it seemed like you needed all three of those words to be any of them."

"So without the Catholic, you felt, can I be a real Irish person? You were made feel less yet, I can be anything else, I can’t lay claim on any other nationality."
