The line-up for tonight's Late Late Show is finally here

Featuring news of an important fundraiser for Sean Cox.

It's Friday, which means only only one thing.

Well, it means a bunch of things like the end of the working week and a chance to unwind over the weekend, but as is the norm, the Late Late Show is on the box.

Here's who Ryan Tubridy will be chatting to tonight.

Jason McAteer and John Aldridge

The former Liverpool stars and Republic of Ireland internationals will be on the show to highlight the role that they're playing to support the Sean Cox fund.

Last year, Sean Cox was assaulted before a Champions League fixture at Anfield, and the man from Meath has since been on a long road to recovery.

McAteer and Aldridge will be talking about a fundraising game to help raise funds for Cox's rehabilitation, a clash between a team of Liverpool Legends and a Republic of Ireland squad taking place next month.

A very worthwhile cause.

Riyadh Khalaf

YouTuber and author Riyadh Khalaf knew that he was different from the age of 11, but found it a daunting task to come out to his Irish-Catholic mother and Muslim Iraqi father.

Riyadh and his parents will join Ryan to explain what it was like to grow up as a gay kid in Ireland, and why he hopes that his new book will help young gay people embrace their differences.

Guido Nasi

In 1999, Guido Nasi was visiting Ireland for the first time when he was attacked in Dublin, leaving him with partial sight, and unable to walk or feed himself. Guido will chat to Ryan to recount what happened on the day of the assault, and why he’s celebrating a new chapter in his life.

Ryan will also be joined by Colette Byrne, Venetia Quick and John Fitzsimons to talk about adjusting to life after the death of their partners, and why it’s so important for them to speak about their loss.

Music will be provided by Damien Dempsey and there will also be performance from the stars of The King and I.

You know the time and place.

The Late Late Show, RTÉ One, at 9.35pm.
