Christmas shopping has left my bank account looking pretty tragic so I’ll be spending my Friday night at home.

Luckily, I’ll be pleasantly entertained with dozens of shows and movies airing on the TV across the weekend.

As usual, I will be tuning into The Graham Norton Show which never fails to make Friday nights that little bit better. The chat show is bound to cheer us up on this quiet Friday with another stellar line-up.

The Corkman will be joined by the legend that is Judi Dench, who will chat about her iconic career.

Hugh Grant also joins Graham on tonight’s show and we’re eager to see what the Notting Hill actor says about those election results. He will be promoting his new movie The Gentlemen.

And that’s not all.

Christmas crooner Michael Bublé is appearing on the show.

And there’s more.

Hollywood actor Matthew McConaughey, who stars alongside Grant, will join his co-star to discuss their movie The Gentlemen.

There will be music from Coldplay who will perform their new song Everyday Life.

The Graham Norton Show airs on BBC1 at 11.25pm.


The Late Late Show is celebrating love in all its forms tonight with a show dedicated to romance and butterflies in your stomach.

'So who are the guests for their infamous Valentine's Day episode?', I hear you ask. Well, Tubs has a treat for everyone in the love-struck audience.

Reality TV star couple Vogue Williams and Spencer Matthews fell in love while filming a TV show in 2017, and now they're married with little baby Theodore. They join Ryan Tubridy in the studio tonight, getting candid about their relationship.

What else could startle the romantic senses on the guest seat? Well, someone who has adapted some of Shakespeare's greatest love stories to film and TV is stopping by for a chat.

Actor and director Kenneth Branagh will join The Late Late Show panel of guests to discuss his new movie All Is True, and will elaborate on why Ireland holds a special place in his heart, having moved to England at a young age.

The show has also carried out a search for 'The Greatest Love of All' nationwide, and the public will exclusively be hearing some of the most romantic tales of true love, and viewers who have found their soul mate against all the odds. SWISH SWOO.

Audience games will be taking place (sure to be absolutely GAS), and the 200 singles will be hoping to find that special someone on the RTÉ show.

Music from Whigfield and Mickey Joe Harte join Ryan for some music.. Is is because Mickey Joe's name sounds like Heart? Who knows…tune in to see.

Comedy dance duo Lords of Strut also pop by the Valentine's show to add to the hilarity, rounding up the guests nicely.

There have been some classic humour moments from the show, remember when one guest Colm had his mum asking him questions about his love life? We DIED.

The Late Late Show's annual love programme has long been one of the favourites with the viewers, and for good reason.

We can't wait to see what's in store tonight, the love episode is ALWAYS the best. Apart from the Toy Show, of course.

Disney has released the first trailer for their adaptation of Artemis Fowl.

Written by Eoin Colfer, the iconic, children’s series follows the story of a 12-year-old criminal mastermind.

The anti-hero kidnaps the fairy LEPrecon officer Holly Short for ransom to fund the search for his missing father.

The film has been long in the making due to rights’ issues and production delays, but it is officially underway and in its final stages.

It is directed by Kenneth Branagh (Murder on the Orient Express) and stars big Hollywood names like Judi Dench, Miranda Raison, Josh Gad, and Nonso Anozie.

Artemis is played by newcomer Ferdia Shaw, who seems like the perfect sinister fit in the trailer.

The sneak peek places us in Colfer’s fantastical, underground world where advanced technology reigns supreme.

That is until young Artemis steps on the scene. He begins his master plan to find his missing father by any means necessary, even if it includes taking on the fairies. 

The teaser reveals that the film will be released in August 2019.

Here is the full video:


What do you get an 81-year-old for her birthday? A nice cardigan? Perhaps a scented candle? No, you get her a tattoo, OBVIOUSLY. 

Dame Judi Dench took her birthday celebrations to the next level, through a particularly daring gift from her daughter, Finty.

The James Bond actress, who turned 81 in December, recently revealed a tattoo of the words 'Carpe Diem' on her right wrist.

Judi told the Mail Online ‘That’s my motto: “Seize the day”. Finty gave it to me for my 81st birthday – she’s wonderful with surprises.' 

Dame Judi spoke to Good Housekeeping in 2015, and expressed her interest in getting permanently inked saying: ‘I am tempted to have a tattoo to mark my birthday. Finty’s very keen on me having one.' 

The Oscar-winner went on to tell the Mail Online that her tat is not all she has planned in her bid to stay young.

‘I have macular degeneration, which means treatment every six weeks, but you just have to settle for it. It's ridiculous, it's a farce, but I am not going to give in.' Good woman!  

Judi Dench is currently in the middle of filming for her new role in upcoming feature film Victoria and Abdul. 

Keep doing your thing Judi, you're bloody fantastic!
