We were promised a decent enough lineup for this Friday and it's not looking half bad at all. Great music and some interesting guests too.

We told you earlier on in the week that Hozier and Take That were set to join Ryan on the show. As well as that lot though, Ryan will chat to Game of Thrones (and Love/Hate and The Wire...) star Aidan Gillen about his upcoming role as former Taoiseach Charlie Haughey in RTÉ’s new three-part ‘Charlie’ drama, and will also be joined by the writer of the series, Colin Teevan.

Irish international footballer Robbie Keane will be in for a chat along with his wife Claudia. Greeeeeat.....

While a few Christmas laughs will be provided by comedian and actor Pat Shortt who will also join Ryan. And sure who doesn't love Pat?
