Roy Keane will be appearing on this week's Late Late Show

This is bound to be box-office.

After Jamie Carragher fell afoul of the most recent incarnation of Roy Keane's death stare, it's now the turn of Ryan Tubridy to spend some time in the Corkman's company and truth be told, we can't wait.

Throughout his career as player, manager, pundit and coach, Roy Keane has consistently been one of the most fascinating, engaging and interesting people to listen to.

Simply put, he's absolute box-office.

Well, it has been 11 years since the Manchester United legend graced the Late Late Show's couch, but the Irish icon will make his eagerly anticipated return for a chat with Ryan Tubridy.

Roy's companion will be an adorable Labrador puppy in training for Irish Guide Dogs, as he talks about his passion as an ambassador for the organisation, as well as his prolific football career and experiences with the Republic of Ireland side, both as a player and as an assistant manager.

In honour of Care Day, the world's biggest celebration of children and young people with care experience, the Late Late will also focus on the remarkable stories of Ireland's young people in foster care and hear how they survived the system.

Following the tragic death of Love Island presenter Caroline Flack, RTÉ 2FM and Love Island Australia narrator Eoghan McDermott will reflect on the woman he knew and give his views on the negative impact of social media.

The Great House Revival presenter and architect Hugh Wallace will also be on the couch as he gives his radical solutions for Ireland's housing crisis.

Elsewhere, Tubridy will be taking a look at some rare and exclusive rock memorabilia including the instrument that helped launched Hozier's career, with music historian Jeff Nolan.

Choice Music Prize nominee Mick Flannery will be in studio for a very special performance of single, 'Baby Talk,' with Susan O'Neill, while singer Lisa McHugh will also perform her new single, 'The Scandal.'

All of this and more on The Late Late Show, Friday 21 February, on RTÉ One at 9.35pm.
