Graham Norton has discussed his romantic status – and made it clear he’s happy whether single or in a relationship.

The TV presenter said in his latest interview with The Guardian: ‘I’ve failed all my relationship exams, and yes it’s a different life, but I’m still living.

‘You’re far better off finding ways to enjoy the life you’re living than mourning the life you’re not, which is a double whammy of unhappiness.’

The face of the Graham Norton Show furthermore added: ‘And if you want someone to share your life, well, no one wants to share a miserable life. Look like you’re having fun, and someone might want to join the parade. A funeral cortege? Not so much.’

Well said Graham!

His words certainly mark a change in attitude from two years ago. In 2015, he told the Daily Mail: ‘I’m 52 and I’m single and on some level I feel like I’ve failed because by the time you’re my age, you really should be settled.’

He furthermore added at the time: ‘I’ve reached the point that when people ask, “Are you single at the moment?” I say, “Come on, you can drop the ‘at the moment’. I’m single forever.”’

‘I wasn’t “overawed”. And maybe on some days that’s a strength for her, on others a weakness’

In his Guardian interview, the star also discussed meeting Hillary Clinton. The political figure was recently a guest on his hit chat show.

Admitting that he liked her despite being disappointed that she remained reticent, he said of the encounter: ‘there seemed something democratic about it. We were just two people chatting. But I wasn’t “overawed”. And maybe on some days that’s a strength for her, on others a weakness.’
