The Late Late Show returns to our screens in its more grown-up form this week.
And here’s who will be joining Ryan Tubridy on the couch.
First up, leader of the opposition and president of Sinn Féin Mary Lou McDonald joins Ryan in studio to discuss the party’s performance in the polls, and what a united Ireland might look like.
She will also be sharing her reaction to Shane Ross’s biography about her.
Republic of Ireland manager Vera Pauw will also chat with Ryan after she created history by guiding the national team to its first-ever appearance at a World Cup final in Australia/New Zealand next summer.
She will talk about life since that big night in Scotland and how she feels about 2023.
After nearly 50 years in the business, Lenny Henry certainly has plenty to speak about.
He will chat about singing with Kate Bush, writing a children’s novel and an autobiography. But most importantly how he felt about having an Irish accent in The Lord of the Rings prequel Power of the Rings.
Singer and Eurovision star Brooke Scullion, former GAA player Paul Brogan, businesswoman, TV presenter and influencer Suzanne Jackson, and drag artist and activist Panti Bliss (aka Rory O’Neill) will be chatting to Ryan about being the class of 2023, who’s already the one-to-watch, and who plans on wearing the most sequins!
One of last week’s Toy Show superstars, Saoibh Lonergan returns to the studio. She will catch up after an incredibly busy week and tells us about hanging out with her music therapist Alison, singing at Temple Street and planning her trip to Disneyland Paris!
As for music, well, you won’t want to turn off your telly.
Andrea Corr will be live in studio to perform It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas from her new release The Christmas Album while Col Patterson makes his Late Late debut performing his critically acclaimed single Bedford Falls.
The Late Late Show airs on RTÉ One on Friday, 2nd December at 9:35 pm
