Comedian falls down stairs after hosting Baftas

Graham Norton is nursing two broken ribs.

The comedian, 46, fell down the stairs after returning home from hosting the Bafta Television Awards last night.
‘I’ve been to the hospital and given horse tranquilizing pain-killing medication,’ says Graham. ‘There’s nothing they can do about broken ribs.’

Graham is due to commentate on the Eurovision Song Contest in Russia on 16 May.

‘When I opened my pain medication today it said avoid alcoholic beverages for four to six weeks,’ he tells the BBC. ‘So I’m going to be sober in Moscow.’
