Here's who's on the Late Late and Graham Norton tonight

Friday is here.

Great to see it.

And what would Friday be without a double dose of light entertainment talk show heroics?

Nothing, that's what.

And so, please find the line-ups for both The Late Late Show and The Graham Norton Show for this Friday, 9 November, below...

The Late Late Show

Ryan Tubridy will be joined by homelessness advocate Alice Leahy, who left her job as a nurse to work and live in a Dublin homeless shelter.

Over 40 years later, Alice is still very much dedicated to bettering the lives of Ireland's homeless through her work with the Alice Leahy Trust, which she will be discussing in detail on the Late Late couch.

Elsewhere on the show, renowned mind hacker Keith Barry will preview his latest show, which "explores the blurred lines between reality and deception".

If that's not enough for you, Ryan will catch up with Adam O'Sullivan; a young man who brought the Late Late audience to its feet with the High Kings eight years ago.

O'Sullivan had been diagnosed with a brain tumour at the time, when he delivered a rousing rendition of 'Whiskey in the Jar', and he's back to update us on what's next for this vibrant character.

The Sportsfile photography team's annual A Season of Sundays book will also come into focus, while Tubridy will talk to people with experience of adoption in Ireland and the show will highlight three Irish women - Chanelle McCoy, Marissa Carter and Caroline Foran - and their approach to life.

Music comes from The High Kings and Fallen Lights.

The Late Late Show is on RTÉ One at 9.35pm

The Graham Norton Show

There's a packed couch on the BBC, too.

Graham Norton will welcome Gandalf himself Ian McKellen, who has never been more relevant now that Lord of the Rings has made its way to Netflix.

Prolific and busy as ever, the veteran actor will discuss what 2019 holds for him.

It's kind of nearly Christmas so Michael Bublé has been thawed out and is ready to go, while Carey Mulligan will be on hand to chat about her new movie, Wildlife.

Kingsman star Taron Egerton will reveal what drew him to play Robin Hood in the latest reboot of that tale, as well as his role in the upcoming BBC re-do of Watership Down.

The Graham Norton Show is on BBC One at 10.35pm
