Tonight’s Late Late line-up has been revealed

James Fenton

These unprecedented times mean that programmes like The Late Late Show are needed to provide guidance, advice and reassurance in the country’s hour of need.

That’s exactly what tonight’s Late Late will consist of as Ryan Tubridy presents the show without a studio audience for the second week running. Last week’s episode received praise for the way it provided viewers with essential information on Covid-19 and tonight looks like it will be no different.

Finance Minister Paschal Donohue will be on hand to answer questions submitted by viewers about financial uncertainties amid the Coronavirus outbreak. Department of Health Chief Medical Officer Tony Holahan will also be on to give viewers the latest updates on the crisis and Ireland’s reaction to it.

Other guests tonight include Stephen Fry, Daniel and Majella O’Donnell, Sharon Corr and restaurateurs Derry and Sallyanne Clarke. They will all be joining Ryan from remote locations, a practice that has become ever more common in recent days.

Munster Rugby’s Billy Holland and his wife Lanlih will also be speaking to Ryan from their Cork home about the recent arrival of their baby son Matthew. The couple lost their baby daughter Emmeline last year at the age of just six months and after a Late Late appearance in January, viewers raised nearly €700,000 in her memory.

You can see all of this on tonight’s episode of The Late Late Show on RTE One from 9.35pm.
