Here's the lineup for this week's episode of The Late Late Show

The show will see pop twins Jedward shaving off their iconic quiffs for a good cause.

The Late Late Show returns Friday night for an episode filled with music and conversation as the show celebrates Daffodil Day, the Irish Cancer Society's annual fundraiser.


For the second year, the traditional fundraiser had to be cancelled due to Covid-19.

As such, The Late Late Show will support the initiative and raise vital money to fund the charity's night nursing services, the Irish Cancer Society support line, free counselling services for cancer patients and their families, as well as the 13 daffodil centres located at major hospitals across the country.

Westlife star Shane Filan will be in studio, speaking to host Ryan Tubridy for the very first time about how he coped with recently losing both of his parents to cancer just ten months apart.

Filan will discuss the important work of the Irish Cancer Society in providing support for patients and families dealing with cancer.

He will also share news on Westlife's upcoming plans, and perform a Westlife favourite in honour of his parents.

Pop twins Jedward, renowned for their truly outstanding quiffs, will be shaving their heads live on air to help raise Daffodil Day donations.

John and Edward's mother Susanna died in 2019 from cancer.


Speaking about their upcoming appearance on the show, Jedward said in a statement: "We are honouring the memory of all those who have come and gone, we are sending strength and love to all those suffering.

"It's heartbreaking that all our loved ones aren't with us, but they will be looking down on us from heaven".

Cavan footballer Oisin Kiernan will be talking about his diagnosis and treatment for testicular cancer, his subsequent GAA comeback and his advice for young men watching.

Tubridy will also meet some of the army of volunteers who swim, run, bucket-shake, drive and cycle each year all in aid of the Irish Cancer Society.

CEO of the charity Averil Power will share her own personal experience with the night nursing service on the show as well.


Meanwhile, Irish rockers Inhaler will be in the studio to play their latest hit single 'Cheer Up Baby' for their debut Late Late Show performance.

You can check out The Late Late Show on RTÉ One on Friday, 26 March at 9.35pm.
