Here’s your Graham Norton and Late Late Show line-ups for Friday night

Enter the chatmosphere.

It’s Friday. The weather could be a lot better.


A good night for the couch, then.

That’s the preamble out of the way, so let’s see who is gracing the respective furniture in London and Dublin, respectively…

The Graham Norton Show

It’s a Game of Thrones reunion as Jason Momoa (who got out of that show long before it all went to hell) and Emilia Clarke (who did not) hit the sofa.

They’ll be joined by the terrific Regina King, who deservedly won an Oscar earlier this year for her turn in the powerful If Beale Street Could Talk, but it’s all about her lead role in HBO’s Watchmen now.

Elsewhere, comedian Ross Noble fills the ‘local enough interest’ slot and music will be provided by chart sensation Camila Cabelo.

The Graham Norton Show is on BBC 1 at 10.35pm


Meanwhile, over on…

The Late Late Show

Ryan Tubridy fronts the usual mix of celebrity chat, current affairs and random asides.

This week, Dublin icon Bernard Brogan is the main draw, following his announcement that he's retiring from inter-county football at the age of 35.

You’ve also got champion of The Circle, Paddy Smyth, who will discuss how his stint on the series has given him an unprecedented platform for raising awareness for people with disabilities.


On top of that, Irish-born Australian long-distance runner, Sinead Diver, who took up running in 2010 after the birth of her eldest son, will also be on the couch as she discusses how she became the fourth fastest Australian female marathoner of all time.

Abuse survivor Mary Manning will tell her harrowing story of trauma and redemption, Californian photographer Paul Kelly will shed light on the iconic John Hinde postcards and the West End cast of Mamma Mia will give a special studio performance.

Further music comes from Wild Youth.

The Late Late Show airs at 9.35pm on RTÉ One.
