This week’s Late Late show lineup is one of the best we’ve seen in ages.
Conor McGregor leads the stellar selection of guests this Friday night.
The fighter will chat to Ryan about his new movie Conor McGregor: Notorious as well as his successful career to date. He will also chat about fatherhood and his long-term love Dee Devlin.
Ryan will also speak to Ibrahim Halawa recently returned home after four years in an Egyptian jail. In September the Irishman was acquitted of all charges but it was another month before he set foot on Irish soil again.
The 21-year-old will talk about what those four years were like for him as family, friends and supporters battled to get him out. He’ll talk about what it is like to finally be free, what he intends on doing next and he’ll be addressing the rumours surrounding his imprisonment.
Nigella Lawson will also be on the show chatting about her new book At My Table, which celebrates the home cooking that made her internationally famous.
She’ll be telling viewers why she believes that though life may be complicated, cooking doesn’t have to be and anyone can turn their hand to it.
Ryan will be catching up with Imelda May to chat about what it was like to be ringside – next to Leonardo DiCaprio – watching McGregor take on Mayweather just minutes after she sang Amhrán na bhFiann to millions around the world.
She’ll be filling viewers in on her career since taking her music in a new direction and why she’s much more than just her image. She will also be performing on the night.
Jockey Kieren Fallon found himself in the midst of a nightmare when he faced years in prison for a crime he did not commit.
Though all charges against were quashed, the experience continued to impact his life as he fell into depression and ended up seeking help in a psychiatric hospital.
He’ll be talking about surviving that bleak time, the reckless behaviour that marked his life as a jockey and the shocking physical sacrifices that some jockeys make to reach the top of their game.
Plus music from The Academic with a very special performance of U2’s In God’s Country from the charity album The Joshua Tree – New Roots.
It’s one not to be missed!
