The Late Late want to bring 2023 in with a bang.

And their first show of the year may be just that as they have a pretty stellar lineup.

Julian Benson is first up on the couch and will talk about finally buying a house for CF patients and their families to stay in while they are receiving treatment in hospital.

Before opening the doors to this house, Julian has a big project ahead of him to renovate the house and will appeal to the public on the night for their support.

Greg O’Shea joins Ryan on the couch to chat about rising to fame, retiring from rugby and the impact the last three years have taken on his mental health.

We can’t wait to watch!

After the triumphant return of Operation Transformation, the leaders Marie Clear, Andrea Daly, Lorraine Dempsey, Stephanie Bowden and Thomas Hynes as they embark on a health and wellness plan to kick-start a new chapter in their lives.

As everyone is glued to the Regency Hotel trial, the Sunday World’s Nicola Tallant will join Ryan to discuss how the Kinahan gang rose to become one of the biggest crime cartels in the world and how it’s all come crashing down after they found themselves a target of the US Authorities.
