It's all about the Irish acting queens on The Late Late Show this week with Brenda Fricker and Nicola Coughlan set to chat to Ryan Tubridy.

The pair are just two of a wide range of guests this week with singer Lyra and former boxer Barry McGuigan also appearing on The Late Late Show, as well as the five Operation Transformation leaders.

Oscar winner Fricker will speak about this week's report on the investigation into Ireland's mother and baby homes and pay tribute to those that suffered and lost their lives.

Coughlan will be talking to Ryan about her recent turn in hit Netflix period drama Bridgerton as well as her rise to fame and her role in Channel 4's Derry Girls.

Friday marks the third anniversary of the death of Cranberries singer Dolores O'Riordan and Lyra will perform a tribute to the much-missed singer.

McGuigan will speak about the death of his daughter Danika in 2019 at the age of 33 and how he and his family are coping with her loss.

Finally, the Operation Transformation crew will talk about the new series to date and what viewers can expect. You can catch all of this when The Late Late Show airs on Friday night at 9.35pm on RTÉ One.
