The line-up for this week's Late, Late Show is tempting us to stay in tomorrow night

Music, Game of Thrones and football. What else matters?

JOE frequently resists the urge to go out on the tiles every Friday night because we prefer to stay in and watch the Late, Late Show.


Seriously, we do.

We're fairly certain that we won't be the only people staying at home this Friday because this week's line-up is absolutely stellar.

We're already looking forward to throwing on our retro Italia '90 jersey and sipping on a cup of tea as we watch the cream of Ireland's music, sporting and acting talent discuss their careers.

Music fans will be delighted to hear that the all-conquering Hozier will be sitting down for a chat with Ryan, where he'll presumably be asked about what's it like to experience one of the greatest years that anybody has ever experienced. No word of a lie.

There's no need for patience when Take That are on the couch as the lads will be trying to rule the world once again as they shamelessly sell promote their new material.

Game of Thrones fans will be very interested in what Aiden Gillen will have to say when he's on the couch to discuss the new season and his upcoming role in the three-part biopic of Charlie Haughey that's being broadcast over Christmas.

Pat Shortt will undoubtedly be his usual bundle of energy and laughs but we can't wait to hear what Ireland's record goalscorer Robbie Keane has to say.


The LA Galaxy striker will get to fulfil another childhood dream of his when he gets interviewed by Ryan Tubridy along with his wife Claudine.

We reckon that there will be some craic in the green room between Littlefinger, Hozier and Robbie. What would that conversation be like?
