You know it's summer when...Graham Norton returns to his West Cork base
It's officially summer when Graham Norton returns to Cork.
The Bandon native spends a large portion of his summer in his native county where he owns a holiday home near Bantry on the Sheep's Head peninsula.
Joined by his two cherished dogs Bailey and Madge, the chat show king has been keeping fans on Instagram up to date of his return to home soil.
"The summer of sport has begun #pingpong #sunshine #toomuchcoffee," he captioned one fun photo of a group of friends playing table tennis in his sprawling garden.
He later shared a snap of his picturesque view of Bantry Bay, captioning it: "Not all days are created equal! #summer #ireland #paradise."
Graham returns to Cork for two and a half months every summer during a break from his BBC hosting duties.
The down-to-earth stars appeared at the Listowel Literary Festival last month and just two weeks ago, he acted as quizmaster for a local quiz night (his third year running) in Ahakista, to raise funds for an activity centre in the area.
