The guests for Friday's Late Late show have been announced but according to Love/Hate and Cardboard Gangsters Actor, John Connors, the line-up could have been entirely different.

Connors took to Social Media to share his disgust at the fact that RTÉ have allegedly pulled two actresses from being on the couch on Friday.

He said in a post that:

"Please share! This could of been a great discussion around racism instead they invite a racist on the show. Lets see if the Irish media pick this up.

RTE have stooped to a new low. The Late Late Show was supposed to have on actresses Aïssa Maïga and Lynn Rafferty, the new stars of TAKEN DOWN. This is a show from the people behind love/hate, a show that had over a million people watching per episode.

"Aïssa Maïga is a black actress who is big star in France. At The Cannes Film Festival she led a red carpet protest against racism in the film industry. It’s ironic that the Late Late Show don’t want her want on but they want Peter Casey. More people watched love/hate than voted for Peter Casey.

"I know that the new series has cast a number of young actors who have come through Direct Provision. They are the new Irish - their stories should be told on the national broadcaster but instead we have……….Peter Casey."

RTÉ have yet to comment on the matter.
