The Irish influencing industry has been marred by criticism in recent months, but despite the criticism of the industry as a whole, hardworking and authentic bloggers and social media gurus deserve recognition for their cultivated following. 

Erika Fox of Retro Flame is one such blogger, who began her journey in online content creation years before becoming an influencer was a mainstream accolade. 

The Kerry native, whose style hallmarks include a sharp blazer, killer boots and a head of copper waves, has been making fashion and lifestyle content that enthrals her Insta audience of 130k followers.

This weekend, Erika will join host Ray D'Arcy on the couch to discuss her work and life in New York as a full time fashion & lifestyle blogger.

Erika runs her blog and YouTube channel full time, with a hand from her sister Kaelin Fox. 

Erika was recently named as one of the Top 10 globally recognised Irish influencers by SERMO, along with names like Suzanne Jackson and Roz Pucell.

Joining Erika is  philanthropist and businessman Dr Tom Cavanagh talks to Ray about his efforts to build a more equal Ireland.

Dancing with the Stars judges Loraine Barry, Julian Benson and Brian Redmond will also come together on the night to sit down with Ray.

You can catch the show on RTÉ One at 9.45pm this Saturday 5 January.


We must admit; even though American politics make us weep  –  we LIVE for the stories about Trump's personal life.

Half the time we are still scratching our heads as to HOW on earth he was elected and remains in office despite the sheer volume of scandals that have come out.

One particular scandal is going to be discussed on the Ray D'Arcy Show tomorrow – and tuning in is a MUST.

Stormy Daniels is opening up to Ray about her alleged affair with Donald Trump.

In the interview, you can expect to hear details of the non-disclosure agreement that she signed in the run-up to the 2016 US Presidential Election.

Stormy who's real name is Stephanie Clifford, will also talk about her new tell-all book on the matter, titled Full Disclosure.

The 39-year-old has claimed she got freaky in the sheets with a married Trump.

She also alleged that they carried on a relationship for a year, despite Donald being wed to third wife, Melania.

Stormy famously filed a defamation case against the US president.

The legal action was subsequently thrown out of court and she was left to foot Trump's legal bills – ouch, gal.

We look forward to the secrets she will spill. 


Ray D'Arcy is set to be joined on the couch this weekend by a very interesting guest. 

Ivana Trump, who was previously married to (you guessed it) current POTUS Donald Trump, will be sitting down with Ray to discuss her relationship with the president. 

Outspoken Ivana will also be sharing her exact opinion on First Lady Melania Trump.

Ivana previously told Good Morning America that she sees her self as the real First Lady, and that she assumes that Melania's life 'in Washington must be terrible.'

She will also be discussing her daughter Ivanka's role and impact on the Washington regimen. 

Also set to join Ray is reality TV star Millie Mackintosh. 

The Made In Chelsea veteran will sit down with Ray amid rumours of her immanent wedding to long-term beau Hugo Taylor. 

Millie is set to discuss how she went from London it-girl to style icon with a very private personal life. 

Also on the line-up for this Saturday's Ray D'Arcy Show are Wicklow brothers Sean and Conor Price who will be live in studio this week sharing their X Factor experiences, as well as broadcaster Charlie Bird.


Whether you love him or despair of him, there is no questioning the fact that Cian Twomey has made a major name for himself online. 

The internet comedian rose to fame by making parody videos of his girlfriend, and quickly amassed millions of followers. 

Now with over five million fans watching his every upload, the Cork native is about to appear on the Ray D'Arcy Show this Saturday to discuss his online career.

Cian will also be discussing his new book, entitled Go F*ck Yourself, Cian!

TV presenter, business woman and model Amanda Bryam will also join Ray on the night.

Throughout her modelling career Amanda put herself under constant pressure to lose weight, and will discuss her new-found body positivity.

She will reveal to viewers how she learned to embrace who she really is.

Ray will also be joined by Paddy and Joan Darcy, who are married 55 years. 

They will be on hand to discuss the secrets of a long-standing relationship, and will give their opinions on today's modern love tactics.

Sounds like a night in on Saturday could be called for. 


Never mind that we can't actually name one other thing that he's starred in (OK, so he was in The Good Wife too) – we're still totally swooning over the fact that Mr Big is going to be on our screens once again tomorrow evening.

Yup none other than Chris Noth heads to Montrose for a chat with Ray on The Ray D'Arcy Show.

The Sex And The City actor is now aged 62.

And although he has a surprisingly modest presence on social media – 4.6K followers on Twitter and 10K on Instagram – a quick glance (OK, an elongated drool) at his recent posts confirms that he's still as handsome as ever.


The Ray D'Arcy Show tomorrow night on RTÉ One at 9:45pm.


If you had logged on to Twitter around the time that Ray D'Arcy was interviewing man of the moment Dean Strang, you would have been forgiven for thinking that it was quite literally a total car crash of an interview. 

However, one very important person is disagreeing with the general public's assessment of that interview and that person is Dean Strang himself. 

Yep, while it seems that ninety per cent of the audience considered Ray's interview to be a bit of a bumbling mess, Dean Strang himself considered it quite brilliant.

"His interview far exceeded in depth and thoughtfulness of almost all of the national US media outlets," the successful layer told the Irish Sun. 

"It simply is true – his interview was more serious and lengthy than most of those I have seen or in which I have participated in here."

Whether this means that American interviews are really terrible or that we were WAY too harsh on poor Ray, most importantly Dean thought the interview went swimmingly. 

"Even with his more relaxed format, Mr D'Arcy was prepared. He treated me with great courtesy.

"Most importantly, he consciously tried to make the subject accessible to people who have not seen the film, which is most people.

"That seemed to me a quite defensible choice for someone who hosts a nationwide, popular chat show.

"Even if they had not heard of Netflix, he wanted to include all of his viewers so that they might get something from the interview."

While we reckon one of the main reasons the host got such a backlash was because a lot of people tuning in specifically HAD seen the popular series, we can totally see Dean's point of view (which we guess is his job). 

And we may have to give Ray a major thank you because it sounds like our favourite public defender will most definitely return to Ireland after his positive stint in the country. 

"I cannot wait to return to Ireland and happily will buy Mr D'Arcy and his producers a pint or two if they allow me do that.

"They were bright, interesting people. Anyway, I hope that folks can give the bickering a rest. You've a lovely country."

Whatever your thoughts on the interview, can you cope with what a lovely, thoughtful and articulate man Dean Strang is? 

The infatuation grows…. 



In case you have not heard, tonight's line up for the Ray D'arcy Show is going to be brilliant. 

First of all, if you have been in any way watching Celebrity Big Brother, our screens will once again be graced by the hysterical Angie Bowie, former wife of the late David Bowie, who really does live in a world of her own. 

While she was not our favourite house mate by a long shot, she did provide us with many a moment of absolute TV gold. 

And considering she learned of her ex-husbands passing while in the house, this interview will definitely make for an interesting watch. 

Next up is Dean Strang, the beloved lawyer of Steven Avery who is the subject of the Netflix docu-series Making a Murderer, which in case you haven't noticed EVERYONE is watching. 

We will be dying to hear his thoughts on the case now that the documentary has taken off but more importantly we want to know what he thinks about becoming an unexpected sex symbol. 

Because that's been happening. 

Also added to the line up is national treasure Neven Maguire and his wife Amelda who'll be discussing everything from business to pleasure. 

We'll also hear from Damo & Ivor star Jules Coll as well as some good aul Irish music from Dublin band Mongrel State. 

The show starts on RTE 1 this evening at 9.35pm. 

Don't know about you lads but we're staying in. 


He's been the unlikely star of Netflix's true crime documentary Making A Murderer, with a love of dad jeans that has even inspired a dedicated Tumblr page.

And this weekend Dean Strang will be arriving on Irish soil, for a just-confirmed appearance on The Ray D'Arcy Show this Saturday Jan 23.

The Wisconsin defence attorney will appear on the show to chat about Steven's case (we hope), and most likely his love of hurling – many Irish viewers got a kick out of spotting a GAA-themed statue in Strang's office:

"I’ve never been to a hurling game," Strang told The Irish Sun of the statue, given to him by an Irish-American friend.

"I’ve never been to Ireland, notwithstanding the 25 per cent of my genome rooted in your soil."

Never been to Ireland? Someone roll out the red carpet at Dublin Airport, this is going to be a VERY exciting weekend.
