Tomorrow night sees 'The Late Late Show' return to TV screens.

Its host, Ryan Tubridy, shared these words about it coming back for a 59th run: "As Ireland continues to adjust and adapt to the changing situation, here on The Late Late Show we are very excited to be back for our 59th season.

"Much like everyone else in the country, we've had to recalibrate how we do things, but as ever we have a brilliant line-up of guests and musicians ready to go on Friday night...

"This, the first weekend in September, should be Electric Picnic weekend, with tens of thousands descending upon Stradbally. It can't happen this year, but we will endeavour to bring a slice of the magic to you at home...

"Plus we have a once-off, star-studded musical performance from Ireland finest singers, and that's all just for starters. Friday nights are back!"

Friday night's guests will include legendary GAA commentator Mícheál Ó Muircheartaigh. He joins Ryan in Croke Park to talk about the lost summer of the All-Ireland Championships; as well as the importance of the stadium to Irish culture.

As Ireland and the world faces into wintering the Covid-19 pandemic, Ryan will be joined in studio by Acting Chief Medical Officer, Dr Ronan Glynn. He'll offer an insight into where Ireland now lies in terms of the course of the pandemic, and predicts what could lie ahead.

Dr Samar Fatima Ali will also be in studio. She'll discuss the heartbreaking loss her family experienced this summer when her father, Dr Syed Waqqar Ali, a frontline doctor in the Mater Hospital, died after contracting Covid-19.

Cousins Ellen Glynn and Sara Feeney relate their extraordinary experience surviving a night at sea last August. They clung to a lobster pot after their paddleboards drifted from the shore in Co Galway. They reunite with the locals who saved their lives - fisherman Patrick Oliver and his son Morgan.

There's no Electric Picnic Festival this year. But fans of the festival can tune in to hear from Snow Patrol's Gary Lightbody, a would-have-been headliner. There will also be a special performance from The Frank and Walters.

And you'll remember the star-studded members of Irish Women in Harmony, who topped the official homegrown charts with their cover of The Cranberries' "Dreams" in aid of Safe Ireland this summer? They will be in studio to perform as well.

'The Late Late Show' airs Friday, September 4th at 9.35 pm on RTÉ One.
