Graham Norton is best-known for hosting his very own talk show on BBC One. The 58-year-old presenter, who hails from Ireland, lives predominantly away from his hometown in an unlikely part of London you may not immediately think of at the top of your head.
The star has been hosting his show since 2007, lives in Wapping, according to Hello magazine, but has two other lavish homes, one in New York City and another in County Cork. The area, which is located in East London on the north bank of the River Thames, and in the London Borough of Tower Hamlets, has a rich landscape and interesting history.
Although the star is known to keep his home very private, he sometimes provides small snapshots into his private life through his social media. Viewers previously got a sneak peak of his abode in an Instagram with the clip showing yellow walls, two square paintings hanging in brown frames at either side of the entrance door, and two black circular side tables with glass tops and black frames.

It’s not clear exactly where he filmed the video, but it would make sense that it was recorded at his UK home, since he has been working from the London studio.
Wapping was once occupied by sailors, it now a very modern place to live and offers residents a thriving atmosphere with countless riverside bars and restaurants. And who knows, a chance to meet the famous face on one of their evening strolls.
Although Graham apparently lives comfortably in London, his peace was once disturbed by a home intrusion as reported by East London Advertiser. The presenters home was burgled back in 2012, but thankfully, his car was found following a radio appeal.
At the time, Norton told listeners of his BBC Two radio show about the terrifying ordeal and said: “I’m a bit distracted but was anybody else broken into last night? Anybody else come home to find your house ransacked? It was only stuff and the dogs were fine but I didn’t get to bed until very late because I had to wait for the scenes-of-crime unit to come.
Adding: “It took me an hour before I realised they’d taken my car. I’m not sure we’ll catch them. Shall we have a game of crimestoppers? Shall I give out my registration? It’s a big black Lexus and filthy. Its reg is LT59 DDY and there’ll be a 5 reward if someone finds it.”
