'I'm too busy to go under the knife', says Graham

CHAT show superstar Graham Norton has revealed how he considered plastic surgery to stay looking youthful for the small screen.
The BBC star said he had been booked in for similar eyebag surgery to 'X Factor' judge Louis Walsh but never got around to turning up for the appointment.
Louis has openly spoken about having his eyebags removed by Sharon Osbourne's surgeon three years ago – on prompting from 'X Factor' supremo Simon Cowell.
However, Cork-born BBC presenter Norton said he almost went under the knife as well but he was too busy. He said: "I must admit I've considered it. I went to see a man about my eyebags, which even I think are hideous.
"But every time I had an appointment something would come up. In the end I took it as a sign that maybe it's not meant to happen. Maybe I've grown into them."
And the king of chat, who is dating software boss Trevor Patterson, insists he is happy about his landmark 50th birthday in April.
He told the 'TV Times': "Even I am surprised at how sanguine I am. I suppose it's because I'm feeling pretty good and settled. I like my job and where I live, I've got my dogs and I'm seeing someone. I didn't like 40 at all."
He added: "I'm thinking about my party now."
