It's Friday, which means we've got the lineup for this week's Late Late Show!

Will you be tuning in tonight?

The Late Late Show is back with a bang, and after last week's mesmerising performance from Denise Chaila, this week's episode has a lot to live up to.


Here's who we're dealing with:

Irish cycling hero Sam Bennett will be chatting to Ryan about realising his childhood dream with the biggest win of his career to date.

As Covid-19 cases continue to spiral in the US, with the pandemic death toll reaching over 200,000, top US infectious disease expert Doctor Anthony Fauci will be speaking about the fight the US and the globe face as we head into winter.

Just weeks away from the US election, Fauci will also give an insight into the political landscape in America.

Former President of Ireland Mary McAleese will join Ryan to talk about her seminal memoir, documenting two historic presidential terms and an extraordinary life, both in and out of the public eye.

She will discuss everything from how her childhood in a bitterly divided Belfast shaped her, to her wedding day being marred by tragedy.

Boxing World Champion Kellie Harrington will join Ryan to discuss how she swapped the boxing ring for working on the frontline in 2020, and how her work during the crisis has given her a different perspective on life.


Niamh Fitzpatrick, sister of R116 helicopter pilot, Captain Dara Fitzpatrick, will speak about the tragic death of her beloved sister in the 2017 Coast Guard tragedy, and the legacy that Dara has left behind.

Rising Irish star Robert Grace joins us to give a special performance of his current single 'Fake Fine'.

And finally, the Kings of Twitter Jedward will be on to chat with Ryan about using their following to spread positive messages on social media, coming back after a difficult year when they lost their mother, and their 11 years in the music industry since their run on The X Factor.

The Late Late Show kicks off at 9.35pm on RTÉ One.
