Here's the line-up for tonight's Late Late and Graham Norton shows

What would Friday be without them?

The weekend has landed. Winter is here, but Christmas is coming.

Still, don't think for one second that means you won't have your two favourite Friday night chat shows to see you through.

Let's see what's in store on The Late Late Show and The Graham Norton Show this Friday 14 December, shall we?

The Late Late Show

There's a stacked bill on the Late Late as the year draws to a close.

Irish athletics hero Sonia O'Sullivan takes to the couch alongside her daughter Sophie to discuss the new star in the family following Sophie's silver medal victory at the European Under 18 Championships in Hungary in July.

Further sporting prowess arrives in the form of Tony Cascarino, who will delve into a health scare that saw the discovery of a golf ball-sized brain tumour, the steps taken to remove it and how the recovery process is coming along.

Having enjoyed another packed house at Dublin's 3Arena this week, Snow Patrol will be on hand to perform before frontman Gary Lightbody - who proved very candid and insightful when JOE sat down with him over the summer - brings Ryan up to speed.

Harry Potter star Evanna Lynch will talk about her rise and how she wound up dancing in front of millions on the US version of Dancing with the Stars, while comedian Jason Byrne will chat about his move into children's books.

Following an incredible history-making triumph last weekend, the team of Mullinalaghta St Columba's will put in another shift in order to tell their story.

All that and comedy from Pat Shortt and music from both rising pop sensation Anne-Marie and The Three Amigos.

The Late Late Show is on RTÉ One at 9.35pm

The Graham Norton Show

Over on the BBC, Graham Norton welcomes his usual mix of Hollywood and UK homegrown talent.

Top of the bill is Aquaman himself, Jason Momoa.

Momoa will be present and correct to promote his new aquatic adventure, a movie that JOE's own Rory Cashin has described as "the most bonkers blockbuster of 2018, maybe of all time" so it shouldn't be boring, at the very least.

Momoa will also get into his time on Game of Thrones and how the HBO juggernaut actually had a tricky effect on his career.

Funnyman Bill Bailey will also be on the couch, as will Strictly Come Dancing judge Darcey Bussell.

On the music front, Norton will welcome Little Mix, who have already sold out numerous dates across Ireland for next year.

The Graham Norton Show is on BBC One at 10.35pm
