Tonight's Late Late Show line-up announced

The Late Late Show line-up for tonight has been announced, with Mrs Brown's Boys star Brendan O'Carroll, as well as Pádraig Harrington and Christy Dignam coming on.

Appearing straight from a live television performance of Mrs Brown's Boys on RTÉ and BBC, O'Carroll and his co-stars will join the Late Late Show from BBC Scotland to celebrate the hit-TV show being on air for a decade.

Sadly coinciding with the anniversary was the recent news that the show’s props master, Dennis Knotts, recently died from Covid-19.

Speaking to the Irish Independent, Brendan said: “He was the most adorable man and actually, we dedicated the Christmas episode to him, we loved him very much.”

Christy Dignam will tell host Ryan Tubridy about releasing his debut solo album The Man Who Stayed Alive and treat the audience to a live performance.

Dignam revealed he was hit hard by the pandemic earlier this year when he told the Irish Independent he was down to his last €300.

Despite regularly touring Ireland, Dignam’s band Aslan was among a number who received letters of refusal from the Department of Tourism, Arts and Culture for its Live Performance Supports Scheme.

Cork-based popstar Lyra will discuss her impressive rise to musical acclaim and will perform her new single Lose My Mind.

Supervet Noel Fitzpatrick will chat to Tubridy about his new children's book Vetman and the woes of losing his best friend and dog, Kiera.

Finally, as the dust has settled and a month has gone by since his Ryder Cup disappointment, European captain Pádraig Harrington will give the audience a behind the scenes insight into the fateful weekend, and explain why he wouldn’t change his approach despite the loss.
