The lineup for tonight’s Late Late Show is a very interesting one

Rebecca O'Keeffe

Sure, what else would you be doing on a Friday night?

Tonight, a lot of you will be out on the town.

However, we’ll be perched nicely on the couch with a glass of vino, watching the Late Late Show.

It’s tradition at this stage.

Anyway, the lineup for tonight’s show is a pretty interesting one.

First up will be Mick McCarthy.

He will discuss how he feels about his new, job, and his hopes for the future as his comeback game approaches later this month.

Next up is Lavinia Kerwick, who made history by being the first person in the state to waive her anonymity to speak publicly about her rape.

On International Women’s Day, Lavinia joins Ryan to discuss why we need to support people who have been through similar circumstances, and how we need to talk more openly about consent as a country.

Then there will be a behind the scenes look at Fair City, as the 30th anniversary approaches.

Diagnosed with a rare form of bone cancer at 16, Nikki Bradley decided to take back her life after receiving the news that she would permanently rely on crutches.

Nikki joins Ryan to discuss some of the gruelling endurance challenges she has completed to raise money for cancer charities, and why she’s on a mission to encourage more women to take up sport through her work with the 20×20 campaign.

Nurse Aoife McGivney was expecting her usual commute to the Mater Hospital earlier this week, until the driver of the bus she was on had a heart attack.

Aoife will be in studio to discuss what went through her mind as she tried to stop the bus, and how she performed CPR on the man until the paramedics arrived at the scene.

Music will be from Sibéal and Sophie Ellis Bextor.

The Late Late Show is on RTÉ One tonight at 9.35pm
