Former White House press secretary Sean Spicer to Donald Trump is set to be interviewed live on The Late Late Show this Friday.

A key public figure in the early days of Donald Trump’s White House, Spicer will be giving viewers the lowdown on what it was like to be part of one of the most controversial US presidencies in history in what will no doubt be a controversial interview.

Per RTÉ:

In an Irish television exclusive, Spicer will be talking about finding himself at the centre of a global media storm after his first outing facing the press in the White House and why he still believes he was right to claim that Trump’s inauguration was the biggest ever. He’ll be taking viewers through his six months in the eye of the storm, including what he really thinks about Melissa McCarthy’s infamous impression of him on Saturday Night Live, and why he ultimately decided to resign.

He’ll also be giving his view on the embarrassing revelations in Michael Wolff’s book Fire and Fury and why he believes they may not be entirely accurate. And we'll also be finding out why he still supports Trump and believes he will win another four years in the White House in 2020.

Late Late host Ryan Tubridy had the following to say about the interview:

"Donald Trump’s presidency is one of the most fascinating and extraordinary things to happen in our lifetime. Sean Spicer was right there watching it all in a front row seat. I am really looking forward to getting his first-hand account of what it was like to be there in that White House with the world’s media watching and his insights into what’s really going on in Trumpland."

Spicer will, of course, also be chatting to Ryan about coming to Ireland to find his much-mentioned Irish roots but he's definitely not getting a motorway rest stop named after him.

You can watch 'The Late Late Show' on RTÉ One this Friday January 12th at 9.35pm.
