RTE has spent some big money on the Ray D’Arcy Show, splashing €136,000 on his set alone.
The money was used to build the set itself, and then to add furniture and LED lighting.
According to the Herald, this is €24,000 more than what they allowed for the redesign of Ryan Tubridy’s set when he took over the Late Late Show in 2009.
A spokesperson for RTE has since said that this is “very much in line with industry standards.”
The news comes shortly after the show was given the green light for it’s second series.
