Derry Girls fan? Then you will want to watch tonight’s Late Late Show

The seasons may be changing, but something that does not change is our Friday ritual; watching the Late Late Show.

After a long week, we would be lying if we said we weren’t looking forward to this week’s episode that will showcase some amazing guests.

Joining Ryan tonight will be the stars of hit Channel 4 show Derry Girls. The show, which takes place during the Troubles, was an instant hit when it aired last year and a second season is only weeks away.

Its stars Saoirse-Monica Jackson, Louisa Harland, Nicola Coughlan, Jamie-Lee O’Donnell and Dylan Llewellyn will be talking to Ryan about the show’s phenomenal success and what viewers can expect from season 2.

Actress Jessie Buckley will be on the famous couch to discuss her new film, Wild Rose. The Kerry native left her hometown of Killarney at the age of 17  for London to pursue her dream. She reached the final of BBC talent show I’d Do Anything which searched for a new unknown lead for the part of Nancy in the West End production of the musical Oliver. She will be discussing her journey thus far and why performing has always been in her blood.

Editor Dearbhail McDonald made the decision to freeze her eggs in her mid-thirties. She will be chatting to Ryan about the upcoming RTÉ documentary which will document her journey and discuss modern families and Irish fertility.

Philip Hannigan, the father of the late Emma Hannigan, will be talking about the best selling author’s legacy and the impact she left on the lives of those who loved her ahead of the release of her final book  The Gift of Friends.

Carol Bryne went to her cosmetic surgeon to try dermal fillers in her forehead but she never predicted that the procedure would leave her with permanent disfiguration and temporary blindness. She will join Ryan to talk about her experience and why she is learning to love herself again.

Former Mixed Martial Arts fighter Graham McCormack will be chatting to Ryan about the extreme episodes of anxiety, depression and self-harm he has experienced and how, through his own determination and the help he received, he became stronger and is not committed to telling his story.

And finally, music will be provided by Jessie Buckley, Mundy and the Irish Chamber Orchestra who will be celebrating the launch of Tipp Classical.
