The Late Late Show is BACK with an amazing line-up


The Late Late Show returns to RTÉ One for its 56th series tomorrow night with a line-up including band of the moment Picture This, hurling legend Henry Shefflin and outspoken obesity expert Dr Eva Orsmond.

As the All-Ireland Hurling Final approaches, Henry Shefflin will tell viewers who he fancies to take the Liam MacCarthy Cup on Sunday.

Henry be joined on the couch by his wife Deirdre Shefflin to chat about life outside the Championship bubble. They’ll also open up, for the first time, about son Henry Jnr’s progress following a terrible lawnmower accident last summer.

They sold out the 3Arena twice over, and now Kildare band Picture This are set to dominate the charts with their brand new album. Ryan Hennessy and Jimmy Rainsford will be in studio on Friday night to perform their latest single and chat about their whirlwind rise to fame, their devoted fanbase and their next move.

When viewers last met Megan Halvey-Ryan she had been waiting 18 months for surgery to correct a double curvature on her spine and received word just hours before her Late Late appearance that her surgery had been booked in. Her appearance on the show provoked a national outcry.

Thankfully, Megan has now had her surgery, and will join Ryan Tubridy alongside mum Sharon on Friday night’s show to fill viewers in on her recovery.

Known for her no-nonsense attitude when it comes to obesity, Dr Eva Orsmond had an eye-opening experience as she encountered the realities of poverty in Ireland when filming her new documentary Ireland’s Health Divide. On Friday, she’ll be telling viewers why where you are born and raised has a massive impact on how long you live.

There will also be music from The Waterboys, and Ireland’s most expensive lamb will pay a visit!

The Late Late Show airs Friday, September 1st at 9.35pm on RTÉ One.
