The Late Late Show has proven to be a valuable resource for the Irish public since Covid-19 arrived in our country all those months ago.

Way back in early March, before audiences were banned from the studio, some Late Late viewers sniggered as Ryan Tubridy was given a lesson in handwashing...

Since then, we've all entered a whole new world as the public were told to stay at home and the Late Late kept us up to speed with a range of guests over the weeks that has included An Taoiseach Leo Varadkar, Health Minister Simon Harris and Chief Medical Office Tony Holahan.

When does the Late Late finish?

For many, it's become part of the Friday night routine but after May 29, we're going to have to find an alternative because that's the date that The Late Late Show wraps up for the summer.

This week sees the penultimate episode of the current series and it will feature Daniel and Majella O'Donnell as well as Fianna Fáil leader Micheál Martin and Oscar-winning actor Jeremy Irons, known to many as the evil voice of Scar in the Lion King.

Ryan will also hear from Nathan and Jake Carter as well as the latter's girlfriend Dancing with the Stars professional Karen Byrne.

The second last Late Late Show of the series gets underway at 9.35pm on Friday on RTE One.
