There is a music legend joining Ryan on 'The Late Late Show' on Friday as the one and only Rod Stewart stops by for a chat.

In an emotional interview (pre-recorded already), Rod Stewart reflects on family, fame and fortune and discusses why Irish ballad 'Grace' means so much to him.

Best-selling author of the Irish Mammies books Colm O'Regan will be in studio to chat about his latest offering and first novel 'Ann Devine, Ready For Her Close-Up'.

In November 2015, Katie Healy and David Nolan survived a terror attack at the Bataclan theatre in Paris which claimed the lives of 90 people. A month later David proposed, and the couple went on to welcome a beautiful daughter into their lives in 2016. Last December, they received news that no parent wants to hear, and the couple join Ryan to discuss their daughter’s life-changing diagnosis. We’ll also meet Keeva Delaney, the girl who has written a book to raise funds for Cliona’s Foundation, a charity providing much-needed funding to parents of children with life-limiting conditions.

Earlier this week the HSE confirmed that the uptake of the HPV vaccine has reached 70%, and cervical cancer campaigner Laura Brennan has been front and centre to advocate for the vaccine. Ryan talks to Laura about what the rise in uptake means to her, and we hear about the impact that the campaign has had on teenage girls.

Ryan will also be taking a look back at some of Ireland’s most iconic ads, and catching up with actor Joe McKinney 25 years on from dancing in that Guinness ad.

Music will be from James Morrison as well as a performance by Rhythm of the Dance.

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