Here's the line-up for tonight's edition of The Late Late Show

It's Friday.

It's the weekend.

There's no Graham Norton Show this week due to Comic Relief taking over the BBC, so it's a clear run on goal for Ryan Tubridy in the RTÉ studios.

So, who's on the couch tonight - Friday 15 March? Read on...

Legendary troubadour Rod Stewart takes top billing in what is billed as an "emotional" interview in which he reflects on family, fame, fortune, and why Irish ballad 'Grace' resonates so deeply with him.

Katie Healy and David Nolan were present in the Bataclan Theatre in Paris in November 2015 when a terror attack resulted in the deaths of 90 people.

Having survived the incident, the pair became engaged one month later. In 2016, they welcomed a daughter into their lives. Last December, their child received a life-changing diagnosis. They update Ryan on their moving story.

The Late Late will also welcome Keeva Delaney, who has written a book in order to raise funds for Cliona's Foundation, a charity that provides funding to parents of children with life-limiting conditions.

During the week, the Health Service Executive of Ireland confirmed that the uptake of the HPV vaccine has reached 70%. Cervical cancer campaigner Laura Brennan will be on hand to discuss her advocacy for the vaccine and the impact that the campaign has had on teenage girls.

Also on the programme; comedian and Irish Mammies creator Colm O'Regan returns to discuss his debut novel, while the Late Late will also look back at some of Ireland's most beloved ads, including catching up with Joe McKinney 25 years on from his iconic Guinness promo.

Music comes from James Morrison and Rhythm of the Dance.
