Here are the line-ups for tonight's Late Late Show and Graham Norton Show

It's set to be a crap night, so you might be tuning in.

With Storm Hannah set to arrive this weekend, we're confident quite a lot of people will be spending some time indoors.


Then again, there's the small matter of Avengers: Endgame being released in cinemas and while the Battle of Winterfell is undoubtedly this weekend's TV highlight, The Late Late Show and The Graham Norton Show are still doing their thing.

On that note, here's who Ryan and Graham will be chatting to tonight...

The Late Late Show

Paul McGinley

Ahead of the Irish Open in July, Paul McGinley will be discussing how preparations are coming along, and why he wants this tournament to be the biggest one yet.

We might also get a few anecdotes about his putt to win the Ryder Cup, or his time as the winning captain of Europe at the 2014 event.

Baz Ashmawy


In his new TV show, Wingman, Baz Ashmawy helps participants to embark on a journey of discovery to achieve something they wouldn’t have thought was possible. Baz joins Ryan to tell the unlikely story of dairy farmer Jimmy Byrne from Louth (among others), who wants to put on a play when nobody is taking him seriously.

Eurovision special

It’s been 25 years since Rock ‘n’ Roll Kids won the Eurovision Song Contest at the Point Theatre in Dublin, and to celebrate, there's going to be a special performance of the song by Paul Harrington, Niamh Farrell from Ham Sandwich, Ruth-Anne Cunningham, Ryan O’Shaughnessy and the Line-Up Choir.

Linda Martin, Paul Harrington, Rory Cowan and Mary Coughlan will also be on the couch to discuss this year’s contest, and Sarah McTernan will perform Ireland’s 2019 entry, '22'.

The Benhaffaf twins


The Benhaffaf twins, Hassan and Hussein, made international headlines this week after Hollywood actor Tom Hanks sent them a personalised Toy Story video. Ryan is joined by Hassan and Hussein to tell him how they felt when they saw the message, and we’re also joined by Míceál O'Hurley, who reached out to Tom Hanks to organise the surprise.

Colette Ryan

Colette Ryan was just two years old when she disappeared while on holiday with her family 44 years ago, and wandered a staggering two miles away from the then Mosney holiday camp in Meath. Almost five decades later since the ordeal, Colette will be telling her story.

In the month of World Autism Day, Tubridy will also be meeting Nicholas Ryan Purcell, a budding filmmaker with Asperger syndrome. Ryan will also be joined by three mothers and their three children to discuss the realities of living with autism.


The Graham Norton Show

Charlize Theron and Seth Rogen

Granted, they're not the first two names that you would think of to play a couple in a new romantic comedy, but that's what they'll be chatting about ahead of the release of their new comedy Long Shot, due for release on 3 May.

Zac Efron


The actor has been getting rave reviews for his performance as Ted Bundy in the new film Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil, and Vile. He'll be on the couch to chat about his role as the notorious serial killer.

Matthew Broderick


Music comes from The Specials.

You know the craic.

The Late Late Show starts at 9.35pm on RTÉ One while The Graham Norton Show gets underway at 11.05pm on BBC One.
