Will you be tuning in this Friday?

The Late Late Show returns Friday night for a jam-packed episode filled with interesting guests.


Following on from the show's Taking Care of Business Special which aired last year, the program welcomes back the inaugural bursary winners Patrick Cox, Oliver Kirwan, Donagh Quigley, and Denise Rock with news of how their businesses have adapted and thrived through lockdown.

Actor Allen Leech of Downton Abbey and Bohemian Rhapsody fame will appear on the show discussing coming home to Ireland, the joy of a good pint and why he supports the work of the Sudden Adult Death Syndrome charity CRY.

Charity co-founder Marie Greene and model and designer Emily MacKeogh will be asking for public support for CRY and recounting their personal experiences.

As Home of the Year is currently back on screens, judges Hugh Wallace, Amanda Bone and Suzie Mc Adam will be in the studio to discuss this year's contenders.

Seána Kerslake, star of The Hole in the Ground and new Sunday night drama Smother, will be speaking to host Ryan Tubridy about filming the show in Lahinch in Clare in the middle of the pandemic.

She will also be remembering her close friend Danika McGuigan, daughter of Barry McGuigan.

Nathan Carter will be in studio with the first TV performance of his new song, as will Belfast band Dea Matrona to perform their latest single 'Make You My Star'.


Meanwhile, the line-up for the upcoming Late Late Show St Patrick's Day Special - which will air Wednesday, 17 March - will be released in the coming days.

From Tokyo to Rio de Janeiro, Cape Town to Moscow via New York, the one-off evening episode will see the show host the "trad session to end all trad sessions".

The program will also mark the most extraordinary twelve months in living memory with a very special dedication to a recipient who represents the very best of the Irish spirit.

The Late Late Show St Patrick's Day Award will be presented live on the night.
