In the aftermath of last week’s epic The Late Late Toy Show, it’s hard to believe that this week there would be top guests joining Ryan in the RTE studio- but once again he’s pulled it out of the bag.

With Oscar buzz building and her cover of US Vogue landing on news stands, Limerick born actress Ruth Negga will join Ryan on The Late Late couch to chat about going from humble beginnings on RTÉ’s Love is the Drug, to starring in one of the most talked about movies of the year, Loving. 

Chat show king Michael Parkinson will be in studio to talk about his lengthy career interviewing some of the most famous people in the world and his friendship with the late, great Muhammad Ali.

Comedian Des Bishop will be telling viewers about casting a satirical eye over Irish current affairs in his new RTÉ 2 show. He’ll also be addressing those rumours that he may be taking part in a particular dancing challenge in the New Year.

More than 30 years after he became a key part of Christmas with the release of Walking in the Air, singer Aled Jones is back with a unique duet and he’ll be chatting to about his life since he was catapulted to fame.

Broadcaster Charlie Bird decided to get a dog, he got more than he bargained for, so he’ll be sharing his cautionary tale. Ryan will also be catching up with Eurovision-winning songwriter  Shay Healy and he’ll be performing a song for the audience.

The Marian Shrine in Knock gets 4000 visitors each week. With a new documentary Strange Occurrences in a Small Irish Village set to hit tv screens, Ryan will be looking at the Knock phenomenon with descendants of the original visionaries and volunteers who work at the Shrine.

All that and music from The Hothouse Flowers. You can catch it all tonight on The Late Late Show, at 9.35pm on RTÉ One.
