The Late Late line-up is here and former Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has been confirmed as one of the more unexpected guests to chat to Ryan in recent times.

Well, it would normally be unexpected but Arsene Wenger has released a book and when someone releases a book in this part of the world, The Late Late Show is normally one of the first ports of call to speak about it. The three-time Premier League winner will reveal all about his career and his encounters with some of football's biggest names such as Alex Ferguson, Thierry Henry and, naturally because it's an Irish chat show, Roy Keane.

The sporting theme will continue with the appearance of two genuine Irish legends of their respective games. Rob Kearney will talk about his recent departure from Leinster and why he's rooting for his fifth cousin once-removed Joe Biden in the US Presidential race. Bet ya never knew that.

Kilkenny hurling legend Henry Shefflin will also be on to talk about his work with Focus Ireland and thoughts on this year's unusual hurling championship.

Sarah and Cathleen, the daughters of legendary Thin Lizzy frontman Phil Lynott, will speak about a new documentary based on their father's life before rising Irish star Loah performs her version of Thin Lizzy's Dancing in the Moonlight.

There will also be a performance from Wild Youth, Dermot Bannon will talk about home life in the Covid era and Piers Morgan will discuss, well, probably all sorts of controversial opinions.

You can catch it all at the usual time and place of 9.35pm on Friday night on RTE One.
