RTÉ has announced the star-studded lineup for the first episode of Angela Scanlon’s new chat show.
This weekend, the TV presenter will front a brand spanking new Saturday night entertainment show on RTÉ One called Angela Scanlon’s Ask Me Anything.
Angela will bring her charm, wit and humour to this one-hour show featuring surprises and unexpected revelations for the celebrity guests, as they all agree to be asked, absolutely anything.
First up, actor and comedian Chris O’Dowd will tell Angela about the importance of staying true to your Irish accent, how his pet dog Potato likes to howl along to American tv show theme tunes, his time as a GAA player and the pure joy of being awarded the Freedom of Roscommon.
Line of Duty actor Martin Compston will also reveal what really went down at the National Television Awards when everyone thought he wanted to kill Dame Joan Collins, and why Kilmainham Gaol holds a special place in his heart.
And last but not least, singer Sharon Corr, the “sexiest fiddler in Ireland”, will join Angela to speak about family, feisty lyrics, Tinder, the time she got into a bit of a snot with Luciano Pavarotti and the importance of being able to laugh at yourself.
Angela Scanlon’s Ask Me Anything will air this Saturday night on RTÉ One at 10pm. The series will run for 8 weeks until mid December.
