The guests have been revealed for this week's return of the Late Late Show on RTÉ One, as the show welcomes back a studio audience for the first time in 18 months.
Your Friday nights are once again covered as host Ryan Tubridy returns to your screens for his 13th year with the world’s longest-running live chat show this Friday, September 3.
A bumper line-up of guests jam-packed with entertainment, a toe-tapping musical performance and in-depth interviews from Ireland's Olympic heroes, The Script, Pierre Louis Baudey-Vignaud, Boy George, Donie O'Sullivan and Eileen O'Riordan to kick-start your weekend.
“This will be a Late Late season like no other as we move into the light and towards a new run of Friday nights. I’m particularly looking forward to reuniting with the audience who I have missed so much," Ryan said.
"We’ll have a few in this week but hopefully a full house soon. My advice to viewers is to put the kettle on, chill the wine and order in. Leave the rest to us!”

In a special musical tribute, Eileen O’Riordan remembers her beloved daughter Dolores on what would have been her 50th birthday.

Eileen will also be joined by Fergal Lawler from The Cranberries who will chat about his life on the road and in the studio with his friend, the iconic Dolores O’Riordan.
