Here's who will be on The Late Late Show's Valentine's Day special

It's that time of the year again, guys.

More than 200 singletons will be putting their hopeful hearts in Ryan Tubridy's hands for The Late Late Show Valentine's Special - which this year actually takes place on February 14.

Assisting Ryan in the unpredictable - an exciting - quest of pairing up the singletons will be a cast including former Wet Wet Wet frontman Marti Pellow, the voice behind  unforgettable love songs including Love Is All Around and Julia Says. 

Marti will perform. as well as have a chat with Ryan in studio.  Chesney Hawkes, whose repertoire includes classic hit single, The One and Only, will also be in studio to perform.

And the host admitted that his favourite thing about the yearly loved-up special is how unpredictable it can be.

"It's probably the most bonkers show in The Late Late Show calendar... but at the heart of it, we have people coming here looking to find love and we are ready and willing to assist. It's a show that brings out the wild in people... tune in, anything could happen," Ryan Tubridy said.

Eilish O'Carroll, star of Mrs Brown's Boys, and her partner Marion O'Sullivan, will be among the couples joining Ryan for a special segment entitled Love Will Find A Way.

Audience members facing dilemmas in their love lives will also be catered for, with a panel of specialist agony aunts (and uncles) providing some no-nonsense assistance.

The inimitable Mary O'Rourke will be joined by Pat Spillane and Sharon Higgins to give their "Agony OAP" life advice to millennials in distress on the back of their new RTÉ Player series.

The famed three-chair challenge also returns, sending some audience members on a romantic and luxurious date... to The Late Late Show greenroom.

  • The Late Late Show Valentine's Special, RTÉ One will air on Friday February 14 2020 at 09.35pm.
