Is Scottish filmmaker Jonothan McLeod the man who won the heart of Cat King Graham Norton?
He’s built a stellar career extracting juicy showbiz gossip from celebrities, but Graham Norton refuses to reveal anything about the identity of her new husband, whom he married last weekend.
But The Mail on Sunday understands that the man who won the Cat King’s heart is Scottish filmmaker Jonothan ‘Jono’ McLeod.
Around 120 people are said to have gathered last weekend for a blessing ceremony led by a local rector at Bantry House in Cork, Mr Norton’s home town.
It is believed to have been followed by a party at Mr Norton’s nearby holiday home, where singer Lulu and drag queen Panti Bliss performed.

He’s built a stellar career extracting juicy gossip from celebrity showbiz, but Graham Norton refuses to reveal anything when it comes to the identity of her new husband.
One local said: ‘We are all happy to welcome Graham and his partner to our locality. He has always been a huge supporter of our local fundraising events, has no idea of snobbery and is known as a friendly person wherever he goes.
Mr Norton, 59, who was first seen with Mr McLeod at Heathrow in December 2019, quietly attended the Glasgow premiere of Mr McLeod’s latest film earlier this year.
Mr McLeod, 44, recently released My Old School, a documentary about a former classmate, who managed to convince school officials that he was 16 when he was in his 30s.

In an interview for online magazine Queerty, Mr McLeod described his school days at Bearsden Academy in Glasgow, saying: “My experience was going to this school, keeping my head down, trying not to be bullied, trying not to let my secret out – which was that I was a 16-year-old gay boy who desperately wanted no one to know.
Several of Mr McLeod’s friends mentioned on social media that they were in Cork last week, including Holby City star Dawn Steele and Shelly McErlaine, who wrote the music for My Old School. Lulu also shared videos of Bantry House on Instagram as she enjoyed her breakfast overlooking the manicured lawns.
Representatives of Messrs. Norton and McLeod have been contacted for comment.
