Mrs Brown's Boys and Joe Duffy - this is peak Late Late Show.

On this week's show, Ryan welcomes Brendan O'Carroll and his family as they celebrate 20 years of Agnes Brown. There will be a performance from 'Mrs Brown's Boys D'Musical' while Ryan will be chatting to Brendan and the rest of the cast about the phenomenon that is 'Mrs Brown's Boys'.

Also on the show, Joe Duffy and co-writer Freya McClemence will join Ryan to talk about some of the often forgotten tragedies from Northern Ireland, those of the innocent children killed in the conflict, which they have documented in their book, 'Children of the Troubles'.

In a random addition to the lineup, the Speaker of the House of Commons, John Bercow, will join Ryan for his first-ever Irish interview. Bercow has become a global phenomenon of sorts in recent years thanks to all this Brexit drama. He recently announced that he’ll step down on the Brexit deadline of 31st October.

As Ireland enter the final stages of preparations for Saturday's clash against Samoa in Japan, former Ireland captain Jamie Heaslip will chat to Ryan about what it's really like inside a Joe Schmidt World Cup squad, the threat of the typhoon and his own illustrious career.

Finally, Bernard O'Shea will discuss masculinity and marriage as he promotes his new book, 'My Wife is Married to a Feckin' Eejit', and singer Sibeal Ni Chasaide performs a rendition of the Beatles hit, 'Blackbird'.

There's Ryan now below going through the lineup:
