A serious complaint has been made against the star ahead of his appearance.

The Late Late Show

Late Late Show producers have made the decision to pull a star guest, due to appear on next week’s show, because of a Tinder controversy they were embroiled in.

GAA star Cathal McCarron was due to join Ryan on next Friday’s show  to chat about his newly released autobiography, Out Of Control, in which he includes details about appearing in gay pornography, racking up gambling debts and his experiences using Tinder while in a relationship.

One of the Tinder experiences he recounts is meeting a fifteen-year-old girl for a date after chatting to her on the dating app.

When the girl’s father, who cannot be named for legal reasons, heard that the Tyrone footballer was set to be interviewed on the Friday night show he launched a relentless campaign to stop the appearance.

“To write the book so soon after the incident and to not express any remorse. What does that tell you? It feels like he wants to cash in on what he’s done.” he told the Independent.ie.

“I rang RTE and all other stations and begged them not to do any interviews with him. I emailed the complaints department RTE but all I got was a letter confirming the receipt of my email.”

“I’m going to Donnybrook and that’s it. That just can’t happen, he can’t appear on the Late Late Show. We are still pursuing the matter. If it transpires that he gets airtime and publicity after I gave my side of the story I would question the depths they would stoop to.”

Cathay won't be appearing on the show.

According to Independent.ie, the father’s complaint has now been dealt with and a senior producer of the RTE progamme has contacted him to let him know the sports star will not feature on the show next week.

Cathal has always claimed that he had no idea the girl was underage until her father called him at work completely enraged two weeks after the date.

“When we met she looked at least nineteen or twenty.” he wrote in Out Of Control.

“I was in shock (when her father rang). I also felt I hadn’t the right to say anything to the man. Part of me could understand his anger.

“I made a mistake, but this was the most innocent misjudgement I ever made.”
