Here's the line-up for this week's episode of The Late Late Show

Friday night on the couch looks like this...

We're just one day away from the weekend, so you know what that means.


Of course, it's time to unveil the bill for this week's Late Late Show.

Following on from a Bob Geldof special last week, normal enough service resumes on Friday with an assortment of guests.

Topping the list is the Oscar-nominated Ruth Negga, who will discuss her prolific career to date as well as new film Passing.

Negga will also talk about her upcoming role on Broadway opposite Daniel Craig in a new production of Shakespeare's classic Leaving Cert text Macbeth.


Rosanna Davison will also be in conversation, joining host Ryan Tubridy to detail her turbulent journey to motherhood, having experienced multiple miscarriages, surrogacy and the surprise of carrying identical twins throughout the pandemic.

The show will also find the time for a football legend in the form of Manchester United – not City, thank you – legend Peter Schmeichel.

The Danish goalkeeper will provide insight into his time at Old Trafford and his regrets about leaving the club, his relationship with his Polish double agent father and the pride he feels for his own son – Leicester and Denmark stopper Kasper.

A very different conversation is on the cards as Andrew McGinley sits down with Tubridy to open up on life following the deaths of his three young children at the hands of his wife and their mother; Deirdre Morley.


Elsewhere on Friday's programme – Kodaline frontman Steve Garrigan will shine a light on a life dealing with shyness, anxiety and panic attacks as captured in his new book High Hopes. Garrigan will also deliver an intimate performance of the song of the same name.

Further music will come from the compelling duo that is Mick Flannery and Susan O'Neill, while Clannad's Moya Brennan will perform her new single alongside world-renowned accordion player Liam O'Connor.

The Late Late Show is on RTÉ One on Friday, 8 October, at 9.35pm
