Here’s who’s on the Late Late and Graham Norton tonight
Both are well worth tuning into tonight.
In one corner, you’ve got Liam Neeson and Sean Spicer and in the other, you’ve got Tom Hanks, Maisie Williams and Anthony Joshua.
They’re not fighting or anything (although Taken-era Neeson v Joshua is a bout we’d pay to see), but they will be competing for your attention on screen on Friday night.
As usual, The Late Late kicks off at 9.35pm on RTÉ One, with Graham Norton airing on BBC One at 10.35pm.
