Liam Neeson joins the previously announced former White House press secretary Sean Spicer on the line-up for this week’s Late Late Show and it's definitely going to be an interesting watch.

This is one of those times that we're grateful 'The Late Late Show' is a one-by-one affair and not a Graham Norton-style setup because we really don't want to have to watch Neeson and others awkwardly pal around Spicer a la Corden.

No, the Ballymena-born Oscar-nominated actor will be there to chat about his new movie 'The Commuter' and tell Ryan "why he’s still loving kicking ass as Hollywood’s go-to hardman at the age of 65".

Then we'll have the previously mentioned Spicer, who is probably going to dribble shite about "fake news" and "deep state" and all sorts of other nonsense all while Ryan goads him about his Irish heritage and offers him a pint of Guinness. We're speaking hypothetically here but we don't imagine it'll be that far from what actually happens.

After that, for some reason we'll be subjected to presenter Maura Derrane, Snapchater James Kavanagh and former Irish international footballer Stephen Hunt "who will be joining Ryan to chat about the things they'd like to bin as 2018 gets underway."

As if we haven't suffered enough.

Then Ryan will introduce us to Deborah Somorin, a woman who became homeless at 13-years-old who has turned her life around, and will share how, through sheer determination, she triumphed over incredible adversity.

Viewers will also be meeting some of the brightest minds from the BT Young Scientist and Technology Exhibition including the winner of this year’s competition, and there'll be music from The Academic, and Charlie Landsborough.

You can catch all that on RTÉ One this Friday at 9.35pm.
