Pat Kenny coming back to host Late Late Show?
The Late Late Show is an institution in Ireland and it's the longest running chat show in the world. As it closes in on its 50th birthday, it's about to get a blast from the past.
Gay Byrne is obviously the best-loved and longest serving host of the show. He was succeeded in 1999 by Pat 'the Plank', who kept a steady hand on the tiller and now it's Tubbers in the hot seat.
But, what would it be like if we could have all three host presenting together for one night only? Well, that's what's on the cards.
The RTÉ bosses were obviously a bit afraid of leaving proceedings entirely in Ryan's hands, so they called in the former big guns to co-present on the 50th anniversary show at the start of June.
The three men will look back at 50 years worth of the Late Late in the special show, whcih we be the last of the season.
According to reports it was actually Tubridy himself who hatched the plan. He told the Irish Sun: "I cannot confirm, but wouldn’t it be odd it they weren’t there? They are friends of mine, not ‘pals’ pals, but, yeah, I hope they will be there."
A Montrose employee told the Irish Independent: "All the stops are being pulled out. Although there are many shows left in the run, everyone including Ryan is working closely on the 50th anniversary special."
So, we can look forward to either a lovely, heart-warming stroll down memory lane, or a mad, unsightly mash up that is as awkward as it is unwatchable. It's up to you, RTÉ.
