TV GUIDE: Eastenders Kat and Alfie reveal all about special spin-off show in Ireland on The Late Late Show


EASTENDERS stars Jessie Wallace and Shane Richie will join Ryan Tubridy on The Late Late Show tonight.

The pair will be discussing their turbulent on-screen relationship as everybody’s favourite on-off couple Kat Slater and Alfie Moon and translating their TV chemistry to the stage in their new play.

And they’ll be chatting about filming a special spin-off Eastenders in Ireland as Kat tracks down her secret son.

In a Late Late Show exclusive, businessman and broadcaster Bobby Kerr will also give his first interview since announcing his cancer diagnosis.

The Insomnia coffee chain founder will break his silence for the first time since revealing on his radio programme in November that he would be temporarily leaving the airwaves having started treatment for cancer of the head and neck.

The father-of-four will be discussing how his battle back to good health is progressing and why he went public with his fight.
