Here's the lineup for this week's Late Late Show

Important information if you're staying in on Friday night.

The Late Late Show is back, baby.


So if you're planning on staying in on Friday night, you know you'll end up tuning in at some point.

And if you do, here's how you're going to see.

First up is Laura Madden, the Monaghan-born former Miramax employee, who was one of the first women to go public with allegations of sexual abuse against film producer Harvey Weinstein, joins Ryan to discuss her experiences working with him in the early 1990s.

After that, Dean Rock and his father Barney will be discussing the Dublin Senior Footballers' incredible 5-in-a-row win last weekend.

Former Irish rugby player Shane Byrne will also be on the couch to talk about the upcoming Rugby World Cup, which kicks off this weekend.

Popular TV chef Donal Skehan is also on hand to discuss life in LA and raising his family there, as well as challenging some audience members to a cook-off.

Fresh off the back of the National Ploughing Championships, we'll see the finalists of the Farm Heroes Awards who will tell their stories, before the overall winner of this year's award is announced.


Derry's Phil Coulter will join Ryan to give his thoughts on the future of Northern Ireland and Brexit, before a special performance of 'The Town I Loved So Well'.

There will also be a musical performance from English singer-songwriter Freya Ridings, who will sing her song 'Castles'.

Plus, one viewer at home will win a pair of tickets to The Late Late Toy Show. Realistically we should have led with that...

It all kicks off at 9.35pm on RTÉ One on Friday night.
