Graham Norton's tribute to Manchester terror attack victims

Graham Norton opened Friday's (26.05.17) episode of his chat show with a tribute to the victims of the Manchester terrorist attack.

The TV presenter replaced the segment where he looks back at the funniest stories of the week with a poignant message to those who were killed and injured when a bomb was detonated after Ariana Grande's concert in the city on Monday (22.05.17).

22 people were killed and over 50 injured in the atrocity and Graham said: "Normally at the start of the show we take a look at some of the funny things that have been going on in the world. Sometimes the world isn't a very funny place, especially after the terrible event in Manchester.

"So tonight all we are going to do is bring you a bit of distraction. We'll do some jokes, chat about films and books, listen to music, tell some silly stories and flip some people on a big red chair, and we hope it brings a smile.

"We record this show in London. I live in London. But we are watched not only the length and breadth of Britain, but also around the world too, and that gives me the chance to say, Manchester, we are all standing with you."

"The only thing we can do now is choose how we let this affect us and how we live our lives from here on out.

"I'll be returning to the incredibly brave city of Manchester to spend time with my fans and to have a benefit concert in honour of and to raise money for the victims and their families.
