Lady Gaga confirmed for first episode of 'The Graham Norton Show'

We don't have long to wait, either.

Lady Gaga is set to return to the couch on The Graham Norton Show when the series returns to screens later this month.

The musical superstar, who is winning rave reviews for her performance in Bradley Cooper's remake of romantic musical drama A Star Is Born, will appear on the first episode of the new series alongside Ryan Golsing and incoming Doctor Who Star Jodie Whittaker. DigitalSpy reports.

The Graham Norton Show is set to return to BBC One on Friday, 28 September, just a week short of the UK release of A Star Is Born on 5 October.

The episode will feature music from Sir Rod Stewart, who is set to perform his new single 'Didn't I', and while that might mean we're unlikely to hear any live music from the A Star Is Born soundtrack, we wouldn't put it past Mother Monster to have a surprise or two in store.

Gaga's last appearance on The Graham Norton Show came in 2013 during the height of her ArtPop campaign and included plenty of unforgettable moments, including a performance of 'Venus', a Skype call with an overly-excitable superfan, and her unlikely bonding with EastEnders legend June Brown.

Suffice to say, we're counting down the days.
