Paul Mescal heads an impressive list of guests on this week's The Late Late Show

Tubridy has a busy night ahead of him!

Busy week this week on The Late Late Show, which sees Ryan Tubridy chatting to Best Actor Oscar-nominee and red carpet Irish language advocate Paul Mescal about his new movie God's Creatures, and he'll also be joined by his movie's co-star Emily Watson (Angela's Ashes, The Boxer).


Chef Jamie Oliver will also be about to chat about his career in the culinary arts, including his drive towards changing perception of food, and his latest Dublin restaurant venture, Chequer Lane.

Back to the Oscar talk, animator and Tallaght-native Richie Baneham will be on hand to discuss working with James Cameron for Avatar: The Way Of Water, having previously won an Oscar for his work and looking forward to returning to the Oscars this year.

On to the small screen, three stars of Irish drama Smother will be joining Ryan to discuss the show: Fionnula Flanagan (Waking Ned, The Others) Gemma-Leah Devereaux (Stitches, The Bright Side) and Dean Fagan (Coronation Street, Worried About The Boy) will all be chatting about the show and their careers to date.

Additionally, RTÉ states that "In 1959 the drug Thalidomide was hailed as a miracle cure for pregnant women who suffered from morning sickness. It proved immensely popular both in Ireland and abroad until 1961, when it was discovered that the drug was causing catastrophic injuries to babies in the womb.


"The drug was pulled from shelves across the world, except in Ireland where it was widely available for a further nine months. More than 60 years on, the Thalidomide Survivors in Ireland are still seeking an apology from the State, and they will be on this week’s show to share their stories."

And last but not least, for music, The Academic who will sing their track 'Pushing Up Daisies' from their newly released album Sitting Pretty, plus The Mary Wallopers will sing 'Eileen Óg' from their self-titled debut album.

This episode of The Late Late Show airs on RTÉ One on Friday 24 February at 9.35pm.
