Here's the lineup for this week's episode of The Late Late Show

Will you be tuning in this week?

The lineup for this week's Late Late Show is quite decent, which is good because we need any distraction we can get at the moment.

First up, the legendary Pierce Brosnan will be speaking to Ryan from Hawaii. The former James Bond will talk about life growing up in Navan and reveal which Irish actors he would like to see following in his footsteps as the next 007.

U2's bass guitarist Adam Clayton will then be chatting to Ryan from his Dublin home about his experiences in lockdown, and the importance of looking after your mental health.

In the absence of the Darkness Into Light walk this year due to Covid-19, Elaine Austin, CEO of Pieta House, will be live in studio to discuss the impact the loss of the fundraising event is having on the charity.

Former President of Ireland Mary McAleese will be on the show to share her hopes for Ireland following the pandemic, as well as her support for the Darkness Into Light campaign.

Mary Black, Mary Coughlan, Frances Black and Sharon Shannon will be live in studio for a number of musical performances of songs from the iconic compilation album A Woman's Heart, which was released in 1992 and went on to sell nearly one million copies worldwide.

Then we've got Chris Hadfield, the Canadian astronaut who is well used to isolation given his long stints aboard the International Space Station.

Hadfield will be on hand to give some tips on enduring long stints away from the people you care about. If anyone would know the best ways to handle this, it'd be him.

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