UPDATE: On Friday afternoon the BBC confirmed through its official channels that the host city will be revealed on The One Show. Our original article remains below.

The BBC will reveal the Eurovision 2023 host city on Friday. Graham Norton will reveal the news on the BBC One Show, which airs from 19:00 to 19:30.
Graham dropped the news during an interview on The Chris Evans Breakfast Show with Sky earlier today.
The conversation is a bit muddled, but Chris helped straighten everything out. Here’s the plan as we understand it.

Graham will reveal the news on The One Show early on Friday evening. He and Sam Ryder will then discuss the news.
Graham said: “Myself and Sam, on Friday night, we will be discussing where Eurovision is going to be — because we’ll know by then.”
Then, later in the evening, Sam will be a guest on The Graham Norton Show. That show starts at 22:40.
Sam, this week’s musical guest, will perform his latest single “Somebody,” toward the end of the show.
The Graham Norton Show was filmed earlier today (on Thursday). This suggests they won’t be discussing the Eurovision host city during Friday evening’s broadcast.
