When you’ve got the Sexiest Man Alive on your sofa, you might expect everyone else to fade into the background.

But the presence of Bradley Cooper (recently named People magazine’s Sexiest Man Alive) on the sofa on tonight’s episode of The Graham Norton Show doesn’t mean the other guests don’t get their fair share of attention.

The statuesque Jessica Biel holds her own against comedians James Corden and Sarah Millican, sharing funny stories about dieting for film roles. Talking about a time she cracked, she says: “One cheat day I went to Dunkin Donuts and ordered 24 doughnuts and went to a pizza joint and ordered two giant pizzas and I sat in the car and I put as much bread and dough into my mouth as I could possibly manage. It was the best moment.”

Comedian Millican, who reveals why Chatterbox may not have been a good name for her DVD, banters with Biel over dieting, asking her: “Have you ever eaten a croissant out of a bin? If we are going to talk about binging I should step forward. It was my bin and it was my croissant but I told my friend and she said, ‘oh, you’re posh now’ because it was a croissant!”

Corden, who has just released his first book May I Have Your Attention Please?, makes no secret of his crush on Biel - but reveals he has a bigger crush on David Beckham, and that the two of them are having a bromance.

He says: “If you ever meet him you don’t know whether to shake his hand or lick his face. He is so nice.

“Yes, occasionally we will send a text to each other and things like that. But he started it and the first time he sent a text I had to call all my friends to tell them before replying. My girlfriend says she always knows when I am texting David because I look really happy, which is really tragic!”

Momentarily eclipsing Corden’s bromance with Beckham is his man crush on Cooper, who is humble about his accolade as the Sexiest Man Alive. He says: “I’m at an age where I don’t care about things like that anymore. I actually thought it was a joke when I heard. It’s annoying because I started to think about how not sexy I am. The other day I opened a door and thought, ‘I can do that a lot sexier.”

Music on the show is from Lenny Kravitz, who perfoms Black and White America.

The Graham Norton Show is on BBC One tonight at 10.35pm.
