The Late Late Show is set to give Vicky Phelan a musical tribute on Friday
The Late Late Show is set to pay a special tribute to the late cervical cancer campaigner Vicky Phelan on Friday night's show following her tragic death.
The 48 year old sadly passed away on Monday at Milford Hospice in Limerick after she was diagnosed with cervical cancer in 2014, which led to her exposing the Cervical Check scandal.
On this week's Late Late Show, The Stunning are set to appear to perform a special musical tribute to Vicky as she was known to be a huge fan.
The Limerick native was among the hundreds of women impacted by the CervicalCheck scandal. Vicky underwent a smear test in 2011, and was given the all-clear. However, in 2014, she was diagnosed with cervical cancer. It wasn't until 2017 that Vicky was informed that the initial test was incorrect.
Vicky sued Clinical Pathology Laboratories Inc, Austin, Texas for the incorrect result and the case settled for €2.5 million.
Since becoming ill, Vicky has been a fervent advocate for women's health in Ireland. She was also one of the founding members of the 221+ support group.
Also appearing on The Late Late Show this week is Alisha Weir who is set to talk about how she gave up her role in the The Toy Show musical for an opportunity to star in the upcoming Matilda film.
Eamon Dunphy will also join Ryan Tubridy as she discusses the World Cup and how it's time for football to take a stand.
Two-time Golden Globe winner Jane Seymour is also set to be on the show as she discusses her love for Ireland and the upcoming second season of Harry Wild.
