In a Love Island exclusive, the winning couple will be letting Ray in on all their plans for the future. 

They are also set to discuss everything that has happened to them since they left the villa – from their new found fame to adapting to life as a couple in the public eye. 

The pair will also divulge how they avoided joining the ‘Do Bits Society.’

 We'll definitely be tuning in. 


One of the most puzzling crimes in modern history has to be the tragic death of British student Meredith Kercher in 2007. 

Despite the crime having occurred over a decade ago in the Italian town of Pugalia, the horrific death still captures the interest of true crime fanatics. 

The case was unique thanks to the salacious media coverage at the time, and Amanda Knox, or 'Foxy Knoxy' became infamous from it.

Amanda made headlines all over the world when she and her boyfriend at the time Raffaele Sollecito were wrongfully convicted of the murder.

Amanda spent four years in an Italian prison until she was acquitted of the crime in 2011.

Amanda Knox's insight into the crime has been well documented through a number of factual films, the most notable being 2016's Amanda Knox documentary on Netflix.

This Saturday, Amanda will reveal to Ray what it was like to be imprisoned in a foreign country for a crime she did not commit. 

She is also expected to detail what it was like to be accused of the murder of her housemate, and her fight to freedom.

She will also discuss her life in the aftermath of the crime.

The Ray D’Arcy Show airs this Saturday at 10pm on RTÉ One.


The bank holiday weekend means plenty of tea, relaxation, and, of course, TV.

The Ray D'Arcy Show is set to be chock-a-block with interesting guests this week. 

Sports broadcaster Marty Morrissey will be joining Ray in studio to discuss the upcoming championship and how he will broadcast live on radio from New York during the New York vs Sligo match.

As well as this exciting insight into the sporting world, same-sex couple Dil Wickremasinghe and Anne Marie Toole will chat to Ray about their pregnancy.

This is their second child, and they will be chatting to Ray about their joy in expanding their family.

There will also be two doctors in the house to chat about phobias this Saturday night.

Dr Pixie McKenna and Dr Phil Kieran will be telling the viewers exactly why Irish people have a phobia about seeing a doctor.

They will also share details of some of the most interesting cases they have seen in their careers.

David McSavage will also be on hand to provide some comic relief, giving his unique perspective on life in Ireland and abroad.



Can we be guests on a show?

It has been revealed that between The Late Late Show and The Ray D'Arcy Show, RTÉ fork out a massive €50,000 to put celebrities up in hotels.

Figures were released today in response to a Freedom of Information (FOI) request that showed how much the national broadcaster dishes out when it comes to accommodating TV guests.

According to the figures, The Late Late Show spent €30,400 last year, with The Ray D'Arcy Show forking out €18,850.

Some of the guests stay in hotels such as the five-star Dylan Hotel and the Conrad Hotel.

The FOI stated: "The ability of RTÉ to run and manage its business cost effectively is of significant importance.

"Disclosure of such material would prejudice RTÉ contractual negotiations in respect of future services.

"The majority of RTÉ's competitors are not required to release these records on the basis they are not subject to the Freedom of Information Act," they added.

Interesting to know all the same…


Easter is upon us this weekend, so for those of us who are heading home for the occasion, TV will probably play a part in our trips.

Luckily, The Ray D'Arcy Show has a stellar line-up of guests this Saturday.

The show will be kicking off with British singer, dancer, rapper, model and television presenter ( what a CV) Alesha Dixon, who will be chatting to Ray about her exciting career.

What a complete girl boss.

Ray and Alesha will be joined by one of Ireland's most famous familial pairs, and no, it's not Jedward.

Brothers Francis and John Brennan, will drop by to share some behind the scenes secrets from the new season of their hit television show At Your Service.

Longstanding Cystic Fibrosis campaigner Jillian McNulty will be on air to chat about the cystic fibrosis drugs Orkambi and Kalydeco, and she will be joined by others who will be impacted by having access to the potentially life-changing drugs.

Also happening this week is the annual bridal war.

The Ray D’Arcy Show is hoping to give three brides-to-be the chance to win their dream wedding band in a live, televised bridal showdown.

We can't wait to settle in with a cuppa. 



If Spice Girls were your jam back in the day, then you'll want to watch The Ray D'Arcy Show this weekend.

Former Spice Girl Mel C will be on Ray's couch and she has a lot to talk about.

Mel will be giving the talk show host the latest on the Spice Girls reunion, and will also discuss the changes of the music industry, from when she started out to what it's like today.

She will also chat about the lasting legacy of girl power, and the pressures of being in the public eye.

Also joining Ray will be Dancing With The Stars winner Aidan O'Mahony.

The All-Ireland footballer will spill the beans on being the underdog on the show, to becoming the winner.

Aidan now has to go back to his day job of being a member of An Garda Siochána. He has also welcomed a baby girl called Lucia, and we're sure fans would love to hear all about her.

Following on from Aidan will be presenter of the upcoming series Big Week on the Farm, Aine Lawlor and author, actor and raconteur Michael Harding.

You can catch this great line up on Saturday on RTÉ One at 10.25pm.


Say Yes to the Dress has been a guilty pleasure of ours for a while now.

What's better than looking at beautiful dresses along with insane brides, pushy best friends and crazy mothers?!

Well, now it's coming to Ireland, but don't get too excited – it's not staying.

The show's star Randy Fenoli will be appearing on The Ray D'Arcy Show on RTÉ One this Saturday and he's looking for brides that might need a bit of help when it comes to choosing their dresses.

He'll also be sharing his tips on how to make the most of your individual style on your wedding day.

Ray and Randy are looking for brides to send in some photos of potential dresses and he'll then give his expert advice.

If you fancy taking part, send an email to raydarcyshow@rte.ie with the subject RANDY. Tell them why you want to go on the show and give them your number.

Good luck ladies!


The original blonde bombshell, and the only who matters according to George Hook, is going to be strutting her stuff in the capital this weekend.

We reckon that the trademark red swimsuit may be left back in Malibu once Pamela Anderson realises that our weather is having a bit of a moment. Probably best to not have it get too wet before she auctions the piece off in order to raise funds for her chairty The Pamela Anderson Foundation.

The Hollywood actress is going to be making an appearance on The Ray D’Arcy Show on Saturday night to share some insight into her life and career to date. We’re hoping she may take the time to shed some light on what it was like working with Kanye himself way back when. 

Another topic that Pammy is sure to mention will be the recent announcement that she has been cured of Hepatitis C. 

The 48-year old broke the news in a rather spectacular style that really only she could pull off.

She shared a picture of herself completely nude having quite the giggle on a yacht with the caption:

"I am CURED!!! – I just found out #nomorehepc #thankyou #blessing #family #prayer #live I pray anyone living with Hep C can qualify or afford treatment. It will be more available soon. I know treatment is hard to get still…" 

For the last 16 years the actress has suffered from the disease. In recent times she had spoken about her desire to find a cure and her hopes that a new drug would be the answer.

She told People magazine: “I'm very fortunate that I've had Hep C for about 16 years. Sixteen years ago that was [presented to me] as a death sentence. I think it really worked on my self-esteem.” 

She added that she is lucky she was able to get the treatment she needed that meant she avoided liver damage and many other side effects of the disease.

The former Baywatch star revealed in 2002 that she had contracted Hep C after sharing a needle with ex-husband Tommy Lee. He however denies that he ever had Hep C. 


Ray D'Arcy is finally taking charge of a primetime slot on RTÉ One, with his new Saturday night chat show kicking off this weekend.

The radio and TV personality says his newest gig will feature "extraordinary stories from extraordinary people, comedy, and the big names… if Ryan [Tubridy] doesn't get there first."

Ahead of the launch of The Ray D'Arcy Show at 9.45pm this Saturday, the host took a look back at his "best bits," sitting down in a tux (as you do) to get a blast from the past.

Of course, it wasn't long before a very unwanted old friend – we'll give you a clue, he has a beak – dropped by for a surprise visit.

Ray started his career with RTÉ in 1990, taking over from Ian Dempsey on The Den, which at the time featured aliens Zig and Zag, natives of the planet Zog.

Socky and Dustin followed later, though Ray finished up his slot in 1998, going on to present the teen entertainment show 2Phat.

Other notable RTÉ gigs included Blackboard Jungle, You're A Star and four separate years as host of The Rose Of Tralee.

Having spent over a decade at the helm of The Ray D'Arcy Show on Today FM, the Kildare native quit in a shock move last year, moving back to RTÉ for a Radio 1 afternoon show.

With another stage in Ray's career kicking off this weekend, we're excited to see what he brings to the Saturday night slot.
