The Graham Norton Show viewers were distracted last night by star Ellie Goulding’s dress.
The singer, 34, was on the BBC chat show on Friday (February 26) to perform her latest single, New Love.
What did The Graham Norton Show viewers say?
On Twitter, Ellie’s incredible gown divided viewers, with some comparing the dress to a toilet roll cover.
One said, sharing a snap of a frilly loo roll cover: “I see Ellie Goulding’s on #TheGNShow tonight. #GrahamNorton.”
Another quipped: “Somewhere there’s a toilet roll that’s feeling cold and vulnerable thanks to Ellie Goulding going on the show tonight.”
A third said: “Like those bog roll covers at ya nan’s house in toilet #TheGNShow.”
“Someone has stolen the toilet roll Ellie Goulding is supposed to be standing in. #GrahamNorton,” wrote a fourth on Twitter.
Others called the look “ridiculous”, with some comparing it to a “fart”.

What did Ellie Goulding say on Graham Norton?
After singing New Love, the star discussed having to push back her tour.
She told talk show host Graham: “I figured it may have been difficult in April, when the baby’s due. As sad as it is, because we were all looking forward to it. But it’s worked out quite well that it’s now in the autumn.
“October, hopefully it can go ahead because I am gagging to do a show.”
Earlier this week, Ellie announced she is expecting her first child with husband Caspar Jopling.
In an interview with Vogue magazine, the singer – who is 30 weeks pregnant – said: “Becoming pregnant kind of made me feel human. I want a better word than womanly… I have curves I’ve never had before. I’m enjoying it. My husband’s enjoying it.”
