Late Late Show line-up

Judging by this week’s Late Late Show line-up, it might be worth staying in on Friday night.

We knew as early as last week that Roy Keane would be appearing on The Late Late Show as host Ryan Tubridy confirmed his first meeting with the former Manchester United and Republic of Ireland captain would take place on Friday.

Tubridy closed out the Valentine’s Day special by saying: “I’m going to meet someone I’ve never met in all my years doing this job and I can’t believe I haven’t.

“He’s going to bring the cutest little guide dog puppy in training with him but I’ve never met him.

“It’s Roy Keane joining us next week on the show, which I’m intrigued about.”

Now we know who else will be joining the Late Late Show line-up; with RTE confirming that Eoghan McDermott, Hugh Wallace and Jeff Nolan will be interviewed by Tubridy this week.

McDermott will be discussing the negative aspects of social media in the context of the tragic death of his close friend, Caroline Flack, last weekend.

Wallace, who presents The Great House Revival, is expected to talk about his suggested solutions for Ireland’s housing crisis.

Music historian, Jeff Nolan, will be talking about rock memorabilia and the instrument that helped launch Hozier’s music career.

Music on Friday night will come from Mick Flannery, who will perform Baby Talk with Susan O’Neill, while Lisa McHugh is set to perform her new single, The Scandal.

The episode will also feature a segment on Ireland’s children in foster care as part of a celebration of Care Day.
