It won't be an easy task following last week's phenomenal 'Late Late Toy Show'. But Ryan Tubridy has an impressive follow-up in store regardless.

This week's 'Late Late Show' will feature a tribute to Sharon Shannon, who's been a major contributor to the Irish trad scene.

She'll be in studio chatting to Ryan and many will join them to pay tribute to Sharon's talent.

Such figures include President Michael D Higgins as well as U2 bassist Adam Clayton.

Moreover, Sharon will be performing some of her best-known numbers alongside Irish musicians as Adam, Donal Lunny, Denise Chaila, Steve Wickham, and Mundy.

Another musical guest on this week's 'Late Late Show' will be Take That lead singer Gary Barlow.

He'll be performing his new single. And of course he'll chat about that beautiful 'Rule the World' duet with singer Eva Norton on 'The Late Late Toy Show'.

Speaking of the 'Toy Show', NASA enthusiast Adam King from Cork is back on the show.

Facilitated by Ryan, Adam will get to interview astronaut Chris Hadfield, one of his heroes.

Last but not least, for sports, the talk show host will be joined by GAA President John Horan and sports broadcaster Damien Lawlor.

They'll discuss what could be in store for the All-Ireland football and hurling finals, which is just around the corner.

The Late Late Show airs Friday December 5th at 9.35 pm on RTÉ One.
