Did You Catch Graham Norton's Matt Le Blanc Joke At The BAFTA's?
Graham Norton's never shied away from a dicey joke, and he wasn't about to start doing so in his opening BAFTA's speech.
Taking aim at Donald Trump, Sheridan Smith and (gasp) Matt Le Blanc, the comic wasn't pulling ANY punches.
"So let's get started, because the sooner we begin, the sooner we can have a couple of drinks," he told the audience at London's Royal Festival Hall. "Or, as they say in theatrical circles, a couple of glasses of 'technical difficulties'", he began.

But we know you're all here for the Joey jibe, so here it is:
"I, for one, really enjoyed the much-nominated Car Share. I think my favourite bit was when Matt LeBlanc did the donut around the cenotaph. It was probably the biggest U-turn of the year, unless of course you count Simon Cowell going, 'Er, does anyone still have Dermot's number?'"
He's of course referring to Matt Le Blanc's famously 'disrespectful' stunt near the London WWII memorial site earlier in the year, while filming Top Gear - which caused a 'rift' between him and co-presenter Chris Evans (and saw them get married in a promo video in Blackpool to quell the rumours).
Matt took it all in good humour, choosing to ignore/give less than two shits about the comment and instead post this adorbs pic of him and his ma (it was Mother's Day across the pond).
Happy Mother's Day mom. https://t.co/NgOVxcoB2t
