O'Donovan brothers, Sanita Puspure and Nathan Carter among many on the Late Late this Friday

Cancel your plans.

Friday night sees Ryan Tubridy take to the couch once more and interview pillars of the Irish community in the form of Olympic winners, weather gurus and country music superstars.

Up this week are Paul O'Donovan, Gary O’Donovan and Sanita Puspure fresh from their gold medal winning victories at the World Rowing Championships.

They'll be chatting about their wins and how they are positioned for a dominant display in the Tokyo Olympics.

Joining Tubridy will also be former Late Late Show presenter Pat Kenny, who celebrates being inducted into the IMRO Radio Awards Hall of Fame.

He'll be chatting to Ryan about a career that spans five decades including everything from children’s television and hosting Eurovision to putting politicians on the spot on some of the most high profile current affairs shows in the country and, of course, helming The Late Late Show for ten years.

After a year of wildly unpredictable weather, Met Éireann’s Joanna Donnelly will be in studio to chat about why our climate has changed so dramatically, and what we can expect from the coming winter.

Nathan Carter will also grace our screens, chatting to Tubridy all about his new autobiography. He will be discussing growing up Irish in Liverpool, developing a love of country music and making country cool again as he rose to the top of the Irish scene.

And he’ll be giving a special performance of a Willie Nelson classic.

Former Ireland prop Mike Ross will also be on to discuss his personal experience with suicide. He was just 17-years-old when he lost his younger brother Andrew to suicide. He will share his family’s story on Friday night.

And bringing ambience to the night will be music from Villagers.
