Don't fancy going out tonight? 

Well, the line-up for tonight's The Ray D'Arcy Show has been revealed and it looks like it's like we're in for a treat.

Fair City actors Johnny Ward and Amilia Stewart (Ciaran and Katy) will be on the couch discussing their dramatic story line that finally came to a conclusion this week. 

They will be revealing what it was like to be involved in one of the soaps biggest plots to date and discuss their plans for the future.

Funnyman and Dublin native, Jason Byrne will also be stopping by to tell Ray all about what he got up to while on tour in Australia and rumour has it he plans to have a but of fun with some unsuspecting audience members.

Government Chief Whip, Regina Doherty TD, will be in studio giving her two cents about Enda Kenny's decision to step down and outlining her hopes for the future.

And last but not least, Ray will be joined by Panti Bliss (aka Rory O'Neill), who has also agreed to act as judge and mentor to our very special guest performers  in the grand finale of this year's Ray D'Arcy Show Lip Sync battle.

This and much more on The Ray D’Arcy Show this Saturday at 9:35pm on RTÉ One.



Remember when Ireland pretty much owned the Eurovision?

Oh, the other countries would show up alright, but we'd basically wipe the floor with them, and that is exactly why the Irish have a very special place in their hearts for the annual song contest.

If you're one of the thousands who tune in year in and year out then you'll be pleased to hear that by simply parking yourself in front of the box and popping a bottle or two of vino, you'll be in with a chance to get up front and centre with the one and only Graham Norton.

If you want to get your hands on a VIP trip to The Graham Norton Show, pick up a bottle of Graham Norton GN Sauvignon Blanc or Shiraz in Centra this week, and simply tweet a snap of yourself tucking in.

Don't forget to stick the #CentraLovesGraham hashtag on your post, and then sit back and prepare your story for the Corkman's Big Red Chair.

Cheers, ladies!


The bank holiday weekend means plenty of tea, relaxation, and, of course, TV.

The Ray D'Arcy Show is set to be chock-a-block with interesting guests this week. 

Sports broadcaster Marty Morrissey will be joining Ray in studio to discuss the upcoming championship and how he will broadcast live on radio from New York during the New York vs Sligo match.

As well as this exciting insight into the sporting world, same-sex couple Dil Wickremasinghe and Anne Marie Toole will chat to Ray about their pregnancy.

This is their second child, and they will be chatting to Ray about their joy in expanding their family.

There will also be two doctors in the house to chat about phobias this Saturday night.

Dr Pixie McKenna and Dr Phil Kieran will be telling the viewers exactly why Irish people have a phobia about seeing a doctor.

They will also share details of some of the most interesting cases they have seen in their careers.

David McSavage will also be on hand to provide some comic relief, giving his unique perspective on life in Ireland and abroad.


Stop everything.

Rumours of a Friends reunion have been circulating for years, and now our prayers have finally been answered.

Friends! The Musical is happening.

Yes, that’s right. Prepare to get up close and personal with some of television's most loved characters –Ross, Rachel, Phoebe, Monica, Joey and Chandler are back, only this time they’ll be live on stage, belting out a tune or two.

According to The Huffington Post, the song list includes some hilariously titled hits such as:

  • We Were on a Break!

  • How You Doing, Ladies?

  • The Only Coffee Shop in New York City

  • Oh. My. God. It’s Janice!

  • Could I BE Any More… in Love with Monica?

  • We’ll Always Be There For You

Although the show is not officially endorsed by the creators of the sitcom, the script will focus entirely on the original gang and is set to include some of their most memorable hijinks.

The stage show was written by Bob and Tobly McSmith who have had off-Broadway success with their musical parodies of 90210 and Keeping up with the Kardashians.

Friends! The Musical will open in New York’s Triad Theater this autumn, and with no further shows scheduled, we can only wait in hope that the spectacle will make it across the pond!   

Oh, and while we have you; don't forget to have your say in the inaugural SHEmazing Awards this May! It's time to vote, and you can do it right here!


If you're one of the millions who still knows the lyrics to My Lovely Horse off by heart, you may need to sit down before reading on.

According to emerging reports, the people behind our beloved Fr Ted are not adverse to the notion of bringing Craggy Island, and the folk who populate it, to the big stage.

Speaking to the Sunday Business Post, the show's creator, Graham Linehan, acknowledged that the transition would have to facilitate a fairly whopper storyline.

"It would have to be about Ted becoming Pope, or some weird succession thing that means Ted’s next in line. It would have to be substantial and big," he argued.

"I think there is an argument you could make a Ted musical where you really go for the jugular and you get all the things people loved about it, all the innocence and all the sweetness, but introduce a harder edge."

Anyone else see Graham Norton reprising the role of Fr. Noel Furlong for this one?!


If you lived and breathed Breaking Bad, then we really think you are going to like Better Call Saul. 

And if you haven't already seen it? Then good for you, because you will soon have three whole seasons to binge watch. 

The brand new season follows the life of Albuquerque’s most notorious criminal lawyer.

Set six years before he meets Walter White, Jimmy McGill, played by Bob Odenkirk, is building his practice and making a name for himself in the game. 

The critically acclaimed second season ended with a pair of major cliffhangers., so fans will be delighted to see that the new season is coming soon.

The anticipated season lands in your Netflix "new" section on Tuesday, April 11, so stock up on some snacks because we all know that this show is binge-watch worthy. 




Fancy being a bit of a TV star? Well, now is your chance.

The casting company which is behind Game of Thrones is opening a branch in Dublin this Saturday.

To celebrate the opening, The Extras Department, is hosting an open call and producers will be on the look out for actors for small TV roles.

As well as Game of Thrones, the casting company is also involved in productions such as The Fall and Line of Duty.

Taking place in Bow Street, Smithfield, producers says that acting experience isn't necessary.

"This event is for new members, people who would like us to help them set up an effective profile and work as an extra in Film and TV productions across Ireland.

"Current members are more than welcome to drop in and say hello. We can even update your measurements with you, put up a new profile picture and catch up on what's going on.

"Make sure to bring along a copy of your ID (Passport) in order to complete your profile."

As opening credits go, Sex and the City is pretty memorable.

From the iconic tutu to the snapshot into a busy New York street, the guys behind the hit HBO series definitely nailed it.

But it looks like it took a few versions if recent footage doing the rounds online is anything to go by.

A 35-second clip, which was uploaded to YouTube yesterday, shows the writer in an almost identical set-up, but without the trademark tutu and unfortunate showering.

Take a look at this…

If there's one show which is guaranteed to bring us out in a sweat, it's Don't Tell the Bride.

The thoughts of leaving the entire wedding (and the choosing of the gown) in the hands of the groom doesn't exactly inspire confidence in many brides-to-be.

And that's why it makes for such good TV.

The latest couple to take part in the emotional rollercoaster that is the RTÉ show are Nikki and Jamie who met on Plenty of Fish five years ago, 

And in keeping with the aquatic theme, Jamie opted for a blue gown for the big day.

Tune into RTÉ2 tonight at 10pm to see how Jamie's theme went down…



We'll be honest, our Sunday nights wouldn't be complete without an hour with Dermot Bannon and the crew.

From arguing over whether dado rails are passé to debating the merits of a skylight, Room To Improve brings out the architect or interior designer in all of us.

And while we all know the show is hugely popular up and down the country, a quick scroll through Twitter during its broadcast proves just how into the programme the good folk of Ireland truly get.

Whether they're rooting for a couple, questioning their choice of drawer handle or remarking on Dermot's love of windows, Twitter gets involved.

And last night, they got REALLY involved when Mary, her son Darragh and her daughter-in-law Sarah decided to reconstruct the family home…







If you have ever worked from home, you'll know it's a lot harder than it sounds.

From endless distractions (the fridge) to the conduct of those around you (family members), trying to be in any way productive is damn near impossible.

But, at least, no actually sees the chaos which ensues when you attempt to act professional around family members who couldn't care less… unless you're Professor Robert E Kelly, that is.

During a slot on BBC World News earlier, the academic discussed the situation in South Korea without realising how determined his children were to get in on the act.

We'll let Robert and his family take it from here…
