The line-up for The Late Late Show is seriously star-studded


Star Wars actor Domhnall Gleeson, presenter Vogue Williams, comedian Dara Ó Briain and model-turned-foodie Roz Purcell join former US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on the line-up for this Friday’s Late Late Show.

In an Irish television exclusive, Secretary Clinton talks about everything from the blame she attaches to herself for her failure to defeat Donald Trump in last year’s US presidential race to the double standard applied to women in politics and what she intends to do now that she has stepped away from electoral politics.

With his new movie, the hotly anticipated Goodbye Christopher Robin, hitting the big screen, Domhnall Gleeson will join Ryan Tubridy on The Late Late Show to chat about playing the writer of one of the most beloved books in children’s literature.

He’ll be filling viewers in on what it is like to hit the big time as part of the biggest ever film franchise, Star Wars; life as part of one of Ireland’s most famous acting families and why he still gets nervous when his dad Brendan watches him on screen.


Model, DJ, reality TV star, documentary maker and now author, Vogue Williams will also be in studio to discuss her new documentary series looking at sperm donation, anxiety and online ‘sugar dating’. And she’ll be telling viewers why she decided to reveal all in her new book Everything.

Comedian and science buff Dara Ó Briain is on a mission to educate children about space with his new book Beyond the Sky: You and the Universe. He joins Ryan for a catch up about life as one of Ireland’s most famous comedians and he’ll be putting some scientific theories to the test live on air.

Having started out as one of Ireland’s most successful models, Roz Purcell branched out into food with her hugely popular cookbook Natural Born Feeder. She’ll be in studio to chat about riding the crest of the food and fitness wave and putting Ryan through his culinary paces as she demonstrates how you can become a Half Hour Hero in the kitchen.

Viewers will hear the story of Maria Coyne and Tina Yasar, two mums who struck up a friendship as they cared for their children while they waited for heart transplants.

Plus music from Jamie Lawson and Lisa McHugh.

The Late Late Show airs RTÉ One, Friday, September 29th at 9.35pm
