Nigel Farage and Alastair Campbell to take part in Brexit debate on tomorrow's Late Late Show London special

NIGEL FARAGE and Alastair Campbell will both appear on tomorrow night's Late Late Show London special to talk Brexit with host Ryan Tubridy.

Mr Tubridy announced on his RTE radio show this morning the full lineup for the London special of the chat show.

He revealed that former UKIP leader Farage is expected to face off against broadcaster and former Tony Blair spokesman Alastair Campbell in a debate about Brexit and its implications for Ireland.

There will be two other panel members present for the discussion, which will last about 20 minutes.

Other guests include Graham Norton, Eamonn Holmes, Imelda May and Finbar Furey.


The theme of show is the Irish community in London and the programme is expected to feature some personal stories from Irish people who have set up a life for themselves in the English capital.

Host Tubridy has been showing his excitement for the unique show with several social media posts in recent weeks.


Speaking to today, Tubridy said: “I am very nervous – of course.  People don’t believe me when I say I get nervous but I do. Every Friday.

“If you’re not nervous then there’s something wrong – you have to have that bit of edge. But once the show starts the nerves calm down.”


Nigel Farage's appearance will likely divide viewers, considering he was a key figure in the campaign to get Britain out of the EU.

He resigned as leader of the United Kingdom Independence Party in July 2016 soon after the referendum to leave the EU passed.

He has since become vice chairman of the Leave Means Leave pressure group, which campaigns and lobbies for Britain's exit from the EU.

He was last on The Late Late Show in 2015, discussing Ukip's place in British politics.

The show will take place in the Central Hall in Westminster with a live audience of 1,200 people.

It is the first time ever that the show will be broadcast outside of the RTE studios in Dublin.

You can watch The Late Late Show London Special tomorrow night at 9:35 pm on RTE One.
