Another Friday, another Late Late Show. Things are set to get a bit grim tonight as they look at the property crisis in Ireland, although it will be useful viewing for the many people out there struggling to secure a home. Richard Curran, the Dragons' Den host and one of those that predicted the last property shock will be in studio to talk about where we are now.
It won't be all doom and gloom though, also on the show is Channel 4's Irish Supervet Noel Fitzpatrick who will be in to talk about the new series of his show. Nicknamed the 'Bionic Vet', Noel has set up a pioneering vetting practice in Britain where a team of more than 100 help some of the Britain's hardest-to-cure pets through cutting-edge treatment and operations. Noel will be chatting to Ryan about the highs of helping animals become well again but also the terrible lows experienced when those efforts fail. He'll also be telling viewers about his plans to enter the brave new world of cutting edge stem cell research for animals and why he believes human and animal medicine need to be more closely linked.
Operation Transformation's Dr Ciara Kelly will be talking about her new series Body Shopping, which will see her meeting people who go to extreme lengths to get their ideal body. She'll be chatting about her own experiences with Botox, her personal weight-loss transformation and she'll be giving her prescription for better mental health.
Best-selling Norwegian author Jo Nesbø, creator of the iconic Harry Hole, has sold more than 33 million books and been translated into 50 languages. He'll be on the Late Late to chat about a life that has taken him from being a professional footballer, doing military service and leading one of Norway's most popular rock bands to occupying bestseller lists all over the world. He'll fill viewers in on where he gets inspiration for his best selling novels - including the real life vampirism behind the latest Harry Hole book - and why everyone has fallen so hard for Scandi noir.
Oli White is one of the UK's biggest YouTube stars with his clips attracting millions of views. He'll be in studio to chat about turning his passion for creating clever and funny YouTube clips into a fully fledged career and expanding into books. Millenials, wha'?
Irish magician Rua will be reading minds - including Ryan's - as well as performing some magic and finally, remember when everyone lost their s**t over a certain Bord Gais engineer on Facebook a couple of weeks ago? Well, the man himself will be in studio talking about the ad that went viral.
