It’s been less than two weeks since we revealed national heartthrobs Cillian Murphy and Jamie Dornan would be appearing on The Late Late Show.

And while we totally understand that we can’t be treated to such big names every single week, is a sheep really the next best thing to Jamie and Cillian?

Along with British adventurer Bear Grylls, Wedding Crashers star Jane Seymour and Irish musician BP Fallon, a sheep will appear in RTÉ studios this Friday night.

OK so Tubs isn’t exactly going to conduct an interview with the woolly creature, but – according to rte.ie – world record sheep shearer Ivan Scott will be using the animal to demonstrate his impressive skillset live in studio.

With a line-up like that you can’t say The Late Late is any ordinary chat show.

We simply just can't keep up with the animal kingdom.

Every corner you turn there seems to be a new species that we've never heard about – but this one has to be our favourite so far.

The Mangalista pig is native to Hungary and looks extremely like a sheep thanks to its woolly coat.

The cuties were nearly extinct in the 1990s until farmers started to heavily breed them again.

What's more, these pigs can be domesticated and have an even temper, so many let them wonder about their houses in Hungary farms.

“There’s nothing cuter in the world than a little blonde or red-haired Mangalitsa … If you treat them nicely, they’ll become as tame as dogs," said pig breeder Wilhelm Kohl.

"They’ll follow you, play with you,” he told Modern Farmer, although later in that same article he also calls them the “Kobe beef of pigs,” but we'll ignore that bit.
