The Line-Ups For The Late Late And Graham Norton Are Christmas Crackers

Darragh Berry


Just wow.

The Late Late Show and The Graham Norton Show have pulled out all the stops this week to keep you, the viewers, tuned in on this cold Friday night.

Tonight’s Late Late show is the very last one of 2017 but Ryan Tubridy and company are really going out with a bang. 

The Late Late Show

Ed Sheeran is on with Ryan. You might have heard of him. He sings a few tunes, has become so big that he released three versions of the same song and is also playing a shitload of gigs in Ireland next year?

Ring a bell?

A knockout starter to the show will be followed by one of Ireland’s most loved athletes. All-Ireland hurling winner Joe Canning will be talking about bringing Liam home to the town of The Tribe as well as being named hurler of the year. He will also be talking about his recent trip to Syria with UNICEF.

Fiona and Tim Tuomey are the parents of 11-year-old Milly who took her own life after posting a message on Instagram about her appearance saying that she wanted to die. They will open up about the loss of their daughter and bravely talk about mental health issues in Ireland. 

The host will be talking to some foodies who will be busy throughout the next few weeks providing all the food that we’ll be eating over Christmas.

There’s comedy too, two of Ireland’s biggest comedians – Jason Byrne and Brendan Grace – will be cracking our sides up throughout the night also.  

The Graham Norton Show

Mark Hamill, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega and Gwendoline Christie have the couch to themselves this Friday night as they talk about the new Star Wars movie which was released this week. The Last Jedi is going to be one of the biggest movies of 2017, even though there is only two and a bit weeks left in the year. 

Sam Smith will also be providing the music for the night.

A true Christmas cracker on both shows this Friday night.
