What else would you be doing of a Friday night?

Especially when The Late Late Big Repair Challenge is taking place this Friday!

Earlier this year, Ryan Tubridy asked for people to upcycle pieces fit for the bin.

The challengers had just five weeks to restore items that were fit for the skip but close to their hearts. Ryan will also be joined in studio by their mentors, Home Rescue: The Big Fix’s Pete the Builder and Gaff Goddess Laura De Barra.

In the spirit of upcycling, we will meet six Irish businesses with a twist, all of whom have turned trash into treasure!

Wild Youth will join Ryan before they head off to represent Ireland at Eurovision in Liverpool in May and will also perform their entry, We Are One.

Sinéad Burke will also be in studio to talk about what it feels like to be a little person fronting one of the world’s most iconic magazines.

She’ll discuss how attending the Met Gala was the scariest thing she has ever done, and why she feels there is no reason the change she has spearheaded in the fashion world can’t be applied everywhere to make the world more accessible and equitable for people with disabilities.

Ryan will speak to Tony Delaney about his journey to justice after being indecently assaulted as a child.

There will also be music from Dublin singer-songwriter, Saibh Skelly who will perform Superficial.

The Late Late Show airs on RTÉ One on Friday, April 28th at 9:35pm
