The Late Late Show will hold the first major television debate of the referendum on the 8th amendment this Friday night.
As campaigning for the upcoming referendum gathers pace, representatives of the Together For Yes and LoveBoth campaigns will be in studio to put their cases forward for the repeal or retention of Article 40.3.3 of the Constitution.
Helming the debate, Ryan Tubridy will also be joined by people who will tell their own personal stories around the issue. The debate will also include questions from invited members of The Late Late Show audience, from both sides of the referendum campaign.
Also on Friday night's show:
Davy Russell touched hearts with his reaction just minutes after winning his first ever Grand National at Aintree earlier this month. He’ll be in studio on Friday night to chat about winning the National in dramatic style, taking home victory for his horse Tiger Roll’s owner Michael O’Leary having fought his way back to top flight racing just five years after he famously parted ways with the Ryanair boss over cup of tea.
Kerry woman Jessie Buckley has gone from singing for Andrew Lloyd Webber on I’d Do Anything to taking starring roles in huge television series including Taboo opposite Tom Hardy and the lead role in the BBC’s current adaptation of The Woman in White. She joins Ryan on Friday night to chat about catching the acting bug; her new movie Beast; starring alongside Renée Zellweger in the upcoming Judy Garland biopic and why she might have left home for the bright lights but her heart is always in Kerry.
Debbie McGee dazzled on the dancefloor reaching the final of Strictly Come Dancing at 59 years old. On Friday night she will be sharing the secret of how she did it and how appearing on the show has given her a new lease on life following the death of her beloved husband, magician Paul Daniels. She’ll be telling viewers about their 28 year marriage, living in the spotlight, and what life has been like since Paul passed away.
