Late Late Show: Eurovision fans, you have to tune in with this line-up

Happy Friday everyone.

We've made it through another week and its time to put the feet up and relax in front of – what else? – the Late Late.

This weeks array of guests is a great mix and fans of the Eurovision are in for a treat.

First up, TV star  Baz Ashmawy will join Tubs to talk all things about his new show where he helps participants to embark on a journey of discovery to achieve something they wouldn’t have thought was possible.

Baz will tell the unlikely story of dairy farmer Jimmy Byrne from Louth (among others), who wants to put on a play when nobody is taking him seriously.

U's coming up to Eurovision time and we couldn't be more excited.

Its been a quarter of a century since Rock ‘n’ Roll Kids were victorious at thPoint Theatre in Dublin, and to celebrate, we’ll have a special performance of the song by Paul Harrington, Niamh Farrell from Ham Sandwich, Ruth-Anne Cunningham, Ryan O’Shaughnessy and the Line-Up Choir.

Linda Martin, Paul Harrington, Rory Cowan and Mary Coughlan will also join Ryan to discuss this year’s contest, and Sarah McTernan will perform Ireland’s 2019 entry, 22.

Ahead of the Irish Open in July, Paul McGinley will be on to discuss how preparations are coming along, and why he wants this tournament to be the biggest one yet.

As well as that, the Benhaffaf twins, Hassan and Hussein, made international headlines this week after Hollywood actor Tom Hanks sent them a personalised Toy Story video.

They will be on the show to talk about how they felt when they saw the message, and we’re also joined by Míceál O'Hurley who reached out to Tom Hanks to organise the surprise.

We will also hear the story of Colette Ryan, who was just two years old when she disappeared while on holiday with her family 44 years ago, from the then Mosney holiday camp in Co Meath.

World Autism Day is this month and to celebrate, we’ll also be meeting Nicholas Ryan Purcell who is a budding filmmaker with Asperger syndrome, and Ryan will be joined by three mothers and their three children to discuss the realities of living with autism.

It's a jam-packed line-up and we can't wait to sit back and relax tonight in front of it.

It's all on The Late Late Show, RTÉ One, Friday, April 26 at 9.35pm.
