The wildly popular chat show has seen the comedian interview a whole host of delightful people including Baz Ashmawy, Brian O'Driscoll, Helen Behan, and many more - and now he's set for another month and a half of delectable TV.

The show, now in its fifth series, has proved very popular among audiences, particularly during the pandemic when people are no doubt in the mood for some light entertainment, decent interviews, and great guests.

RTÉ this week confirmed that the Tommy Tiernan Show would be extended by six weeks, leading to much delight among fans who are understandably very much looking forward to a few more Saturday nights in with Tommy.

The series was initially supposed to finish on March 6, but will now run a further six weeks until April 17. Tommy will return to the studio to record more episodes - in line with Covid restrictions, of course -  in the coming weeks.

The identity of guests for upcoming episodes are, as always, going to be kept under wraps until the night of, so you'll simply need to keep tuning in on Saturday nights to see who Tommy's chatting to next.

This series of the show has proven to be incredibly popular with over 400,000 viewers tuning in each week. It's no wonder we're getting another six weeks of it then.
