Line-up for first Late Late Show of 2021 revealed
2021's first Late Late Show line-up is here.
While the world is constantly changing around us, it is a nice to have The Late Late Show on every Friday to keep us grounded (especially considering we really shouldn't be leaving our houses these days).
Here who is on the show this week:
Vicky Phelan will be telling viewers about her upcoming trip to the America for an experimental new treatment, and why she is preparing to risk spending six months away from her family in her fight to stay alive.
Phelan, who is a well-known women's health campaigner, will also discuss why she hopes this treatment will give her the time she desperately needs, and why frontline workers need our support.
Ryan will then be joined by Paul Reid, the CEO of the Health Service Executive, for an up to the minute assessment of how our health system is coping under the impact of this latest surge in the Covid pandemic.
Six healthcare workers will be then vaccinated live on the show, while CCO of the HSE Doctor Colm Henry will oversee the procedure.
Henry will explain how it works and when you can expect to receive your dose of the vaccine in the coming months.
This comes as Ireland has implemented further lockdown restrictions, with Covid cases on the rise.
Wexford Hurling manager Davy Fitzgerald is back on our screens with Ireland's Fittest Family and preparing for upcoming show Davy's Toughest Team, and he joins Ryan to discuss how the past year has changed his perspective on hurling and family.
He'll also be discussing why recent events have led him to take a stand against online bullying.
Unsurprisingly, Donie O'Sullivan, the CNN journalist and internet darling from Kerry who was reporting live from Washington this week as chaos broke out across the US capital will also be chatting to Ryan.
There will be music from Lucia Evans who will give a very special performance alongside the Discovery Gospel Choir.
The Late Late Show will kick off on Friday night at 9.35pm.
