Graham Norton broke the Guinness World Record for 'Most Questions Asked on a TV Chat Show' last night (07.03.13).
The talkshow host helped raise over £1 million for Comic Relief with his BBC Three takeover programme 'Big Chat', in which he interviewed 38 guests for seven hours straight.
Guests on the show included Terry Wogan, Russell Tovey, Jimmy Carr, Martin Freeman - who confirmed the next series of 'Sherlock' will begin shooting next month - Keith Lemon, Louis Smith and Warwick Davis.
Music was provided by Example, Paloma Faith, Hurts and Laura Mvula.
The show also introduced a Celebrity Kissing Booth, where members of the public could won a smooch with stars such as David Gandy and Abbey Clancy.
Graham recently said it was impossible to turn down the charity challenge, especially as it wasn't as physically demanding as what other celebrities have done for good causes.
He said: "Compared to running marathons, climbing mountains and canoeing down rivers, sitting and chatting for a few hours seems quite easy.
"They are running out of people to do those physical challenges so I thought I should really get in quick with this."
