RTÉ has announced that they will be slightly altering this week’s Late Late line-up.

Following the death of British monarch Queen Elizabeth II, Michael D Higgins will sit down with Ryan Tubridy to discuss her legacy.

The British monarch died at the age of 96 in Balmoral Castle in Scotland on Thursday afternoon following a 70-year reign, making her the longest reigning monarch in history.

Understandably in response, our head of state Michael D Higgins will speak about the Queen’s relationship with Ireland as well as the importance of her state visit here.

He will also discuss his own return visit to the UK.

This means that the interview focusing on Ultimate Hell Week: The Professionals will be pushed back to a later date.

TikTok star Tadhg Fleming, Mrs Brown’s Boys actress Fiona O’Carroll and former Miss Ireland Pamela Uba were due to take to the show to speak about why they wanted to face their fears in signing up to be part of this year’s Ultimate Hell Week: The Professionals.

However, that has been postponed.

That is the only change that will be made to the line-up, with Ryan flying over to the UK earlier the week to speak to George Clooney and Julia Roberts.

He will talk to them about their new movie, Ticket to Paradise which is coming out this month as well as chatting to them about George’s Irish ancestry and Julia’s memories of filming Michael Collins here in Ireland. Even with that dodgy accent!

Amy Huberman will also be on hand to talk about her new children’s book as well as her upcoming acting work.

Lego lovers will certainly want to tune in as ahead of the first ever Dublin Brick Con, there will be a few very special Lego recreations of famous Irish landmarks in the studio.

Megan O’Neill will be the musical guest where she will sing Lay your Head Down.

The Late Late Show continues on RTÉ One on Friday, September 9th at 9:35pm
