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.

Attention singletons!

The quest to find the perfect parter can sometimes feel like a never ending cycle of bad date and even worse breakups.

Whether it's a woeful first meeting, a stage five clinger, or the love of your life who wants absolutely nothing to do with you, the Irish dating scene doesn't exactly have the best reputation.

However, that could all be about change because the modern day Cupids over at The Late Late Show want to round up the best of the country's single lads and ladies for a very special Valentine's Day episode.

Interested candidates must be over 18, single, and up for a bit of craic.

If this sounds like you, simply fill out the online application here.

The show is set to air on Friday, February 9, and if it's anything like last year's innuendo-filled extravaganza, we're in for a treat.

Conor McGregor left many viewers feeling cold after a preview of his interview on this Friday's The Late Late Show was released.

In the clip, the MMA icon can be heard describing a recent incident where he was caught using a homophobic slur as an example of people throwing him 'under a bus.'

'I meant no disrespect to nobody of the LGBT community,' the clip shows.

'I didn’t mean no disrespect.'

'You’d swear I was screaming at two people of the same sex kissing.'

Conor McGregor has apologised for using a homophobic slur in a recent viral video, insisting he mean no “disrespect” to the LGBT community.

In a pre-recorded interview due to be aired on The Late Late Show this Friday, the MMA star tells Ryan Tubridy that he is sorry for saying the word “f****t” and would like to try “move on from it.”

"I have to put my hands up there. I was whispering in his ear and I was speaking on that and I said what I said. I meant no disrespect to nobody of the LGBT community. I didn’t mean no disrespect.”

The Crumlin native went on to say how he had campaigned for a 'Yes' vote in the 2015 marriage referendum and argued that people just want to throw him “under the bus.”

“It is another one where things just get blown out and they love to just, any chance they get they love to throw me under the bus. It is what it is.”

“I’ll just say sorry for what I said and that’s it and try to move on from it.”

Understandably, many people were not satisfied by the seemingly uninspired apology, with some arguing that he didn't even realise the extent of his wrongdoing.
