The Late Late Show confirm this week’s line-up amid concerns for Ryan Tubridy

The show's host has been unwell over the past few days


The Late Late Show have confirmed this week’s line-up, amid concerns for Ryan Tubridy’s health.

The TV presenter has been absent from his radio show for the past two days due to illness, but RTÉ have insisted that The Late Late Show will go ahead on Friday night.

Tomorrow night, the programme will pay tribute to the men and women of Ireland’s National Frontline Services, who have been bravely leading the fight to slow down and treat the spread of Coronavirus.

Following what promises to be a very special opening segment at the top of the show, viewers around the country will be invited to join in a collective round of applause for our frontline service heroes.


Global superstar Hozier will launch an emergency on-air appeal for the ISPCC who are experiencing an upsurge in calls to Childline.

Hozier will perform an exclusive set, live in studio, and promote a new initiative between ISPCC and RTÉ 2FM, where top Irish artists are performing across 2FM every night for a fortnight to raise funds.

Caroline O’Sullivan from the ISPCC will also be in studio to offer helpful advice to parents who are dealing with children affected by the current situation.


Lee Duffy, a young, fit and healthy League of Ireland footballer, will also be on the show to talk about about his harrowing experience with the Coronavirus.

Luckily, Lee has now made a full recovery and will be in studio to issue a plea to the young people of Ireland to heed warnings regarding social gatherings.

Mrs Brown’s Boys stars Brendan O’Carroll and wife Jennifer Gibney will be talking via Skype link from Florida, and comedian Dara Ó Briain will join the show from London.

Former Irish Rugby International Brian O’Driscoll will also be on tomorrow’s show, as well as legendary GAA commentator Mícheál Ó Muircheartaigh.

The Late Late Show airs on RTÉ One this Friday, March 27th, at 9.35p.
