Tubridy posted on Insta saying: “We’re getting ready for an amazing Late Late Show tomorrow night, it’s a tribute to Sharon Shannon, but also… I think we need to bring back young Adam King.”

Adam suffers from brittle bones and spends most of his days in a wheelchair, he explained to Ryan that even though he wouldn't be able to be an astronaut in space he could still work for NASA on the ground.
