The broadcast date for the show has been confirmed as Friday, October 12th from central London, and it'll mark the first time in Ryan Tubridy's ten years of presenting that it has gone out from another country.
It'll celebrate the 'historic ties' between Ireland and the UK, as well as the contribution of Irish people to Britain over the generations, with the list of guests yet TBA.
However, producers are also looking to hear from ordinary Irish people who have made their home in the UK, with Tubridy saying: "We have plenty of tickets but they are limited so we want to make sure that the Irish in Britain get their chance to be part of it. If you are part of that community and have a story to tell, we want to hear from you.
"You might have gone across the Irish Sea to build the underground, or to work as a nurse, or maybe you went to visit friends, found love and never came home. Whatever it is, if you have a bit of Irish in you, you are welcome to join us on the night. It is as simple as that. Go to the website, tell us about yourself. We are celebrating all things Irish in Britain and we want you to be there with us.”
Tickets are now available on a lottery basis, with applications open at this link.
