In what will be Ibrahim Halawa's first big television interview since returning to Ireland last week, the ex-prisoner has announced that he will appear on this Friday's Late Late Show.
The 21-year-old, who was released last month, had spent four years in an Egyptian jail after he was arrested during a Muslim Brotherhood demonstration in Cairo in 2013.

The Firhouse native, who was just 17-years-old at the time, was among hundreds of protestors who were arrested at the demonstration.
Ibrahim's trail was famously adjourned 25 times before he was eventually acquitted of all charges.
Taking to Facebook yesterday, he told his friends to “stay tuned” to hear his story.
The post has been liked over 250 times and people have been leaving the Dubliner messages of support ahead of the appearance.
“Will be watching from Australia on RTÉ player!,” one person wrote.
Another said: “Wish you luck on the show Ibrahim. It's a good thing to do and the injustice that was done to you should be heard by everyone.”
This week's Late Late Show will also feature a pre-recorded interview with Conor McGregor, during which the MMA star issues an apology after he was slammed for using a homophobic slur in a viral video.
Tune in to RTÉ One this Friday at 9:35pm.
