Graham very happy!

JAM star Graham Norton admits - life's great! (from Fametastic)

Graham Norton has revealed he’s “very, very happy” with his new boyfriend - but he’s not thinking about marriage just yet.

The TV presenter split from long-term partner Kristian Seeber in February 2006 and complained that he was “no good” at relationships before meeting his new boyfriend last year.

Graham told the Mirror recently: “I am very, very happy at the moment. Things are going really well.”

He didn’t give a name but said that the man is “not in showbusiness - to be honest, I don’t really understand what he does” but said “he is from South Africa and we met there last year at a party, through mutual friends. Luckily he is based in London.”

The couple spent Christmas with Graham’s family in Ireland before heading over to Cape Town, where they first met, for New Year: “I wanted a little blast of sun before going back to work. Ireland was lovely. It was all log fires, big woolly jumpers and walks in the woods. In Cape Town, it’s a gorgeous climate, sunny and lovely.”

“For New Year we had drinks at a friend’s house overlooking Cape Town and watched the fireworks going off around the city. It was quite chilled - not a mad one.”

But while he’s happily in love, he’s not sure he’s ready for a lifelong commitment just yet: “Getting married is not something I think about really. I am not saying I would never do it, though. When there does come a time in your life when it would be nice to have a special day and have a party and stuff, that would be nice.”

“The issue of children is more complicated [though]. I think I’[d be] a very bad parent and I should avoid that.”
