Staying in on Friday night?

Of course you are...


What else would you be doing?

Well, if you're stuck for something to watch on Friday - here's the lineup for The Late Late Show.

Ryan Tubridy has recovered fully from Covid-19, and will first be joined by former Ireland international and Munster rugby star, Paul O'Connell. O'Connell will discuss homeschooling his children, taking time out, and why the charity Barnardos needs your help more than ever.

Tubridy will also be catching up with iconic Irish actor Colm Meaney about life away from home during the crisis, and playing the top gangster whose death sparks off a mafia war in his new series Gangs of London.

Chief Medical Officer Tony Holohan will be live in the studio, giving viewers the most up to date information on what's been achieved so far and what lies ahead for us in the midst of the pandemic.

Ricky Gervais will be on to discuss his thoughts on the current restrictions and how America is responding to the crisis. Season 2 of Gervais' series After Life comes to Netflix next week.

Samantha Power, former adviser to Barack Obama, will chat to Ryan from her home in the US about her experience of the pandemic.


Singer/songwriter, Danny O'Reilly will join Ryan for a solo performance in studio. He will chat about his band's plans following the current pandemic, why The Coronas are planning to keep their name, and he'll discuss his longstanding personal support for Barretstown Children's Charity.

Finally, former Mayo football star David Brady will tell Ryan why he's phoning people cocooning for a chat about GAA and he'll be encouraging other sports stars to do the same.

The Late Late Show kicks off on Friday night on RTÉ One at 9.35pm.
