Lovely show in store on this week's Late Late Show from rugby legends to charming British singers and Dancing with the Stars contestants.

First up, ahead of the Six Nations kicking off on Saturday, Brian O'Driscoll will be in studio to talk about Ireland's chances in the tournament as well as what the former player has been up to since hanging up his boots. He will also be joined by Michaela Morley, whose happy little face meeting O'Driscoll at Temple Street Children’s University Hospital captured the hearts of the nation.

Also on the show, Brit award winning singer-songwriter and retro style icon Paloma Faith will be in studio to chat about her chart-topping career in music and her upcoming tour.

As well as that, Ryan will be catching up Dancing with the Stars rivals Bernard O’Shea and Anna Geary, along with two of the show's professional dancers Karen Byrne and Ryan McShane, as they all prepare for another weekend battling to keep their place on the dance floor.

As they get ready to take to the Gaiety Theatre stage in the comedy 'ART', Nigel Havers, Denis Lawson and Stephen Tompkinson will be in studio to chat about reviving the Tony award winning play.

And with stress and anxiety on the rise in Ireland, journalist Jennifer O’Connell and neuroscientist Professor Ian Robertson will launch a groundbreaking new countrywide research project aimed at getting a unique insight into the well-being of the nation.

With the second anniversary of the Regency Hotel shooting approaching and the resulting feud still claiming lives on the streets of inner city Dublin, The Late Late Show will discuss the impact of the ongoing violence and what needs to be done to put a stop to it.

There's also music from De Danann and River Matthews.

Catch The Late Late Show, RTÉ One, Friday at 9.35pm.
