The Late Late has a jam-packed line up for us tonight

It's Friday night and while to some of you; they  might mean getting glammed up and heading out, for us it's an excuse to put out feet up and watch Tubs on The Late Late.

Is it weird to look forward to it, like are we showing our age?

Sure f*ck it, with guests like this, how could you blame us?

First up is popstar turned country crooner Una Healy who will be in studio to chat about forging her solo career and finding her country roots since saying goodbye to The Saturdays.

She’ll also be performing her new single Strangers and telling viewers about how the break-up of her marriage to rugby player Ben Foden inspired the track.

Then we have one of the first homegrown film-makers to conquer Hollywood, winning an Oscar for The Crying Game,.

Writer and director Neil Jordan will discuss his new film Greta and look back on his extraordinary career, three decades in Tinseltown, and what the legacy of Michael Collins tells us about Brexit.

We’ll celebrate Tiger Roll’s famous win at the Grand National, doing the double for the first time since Red Rum, with the women who groomed him for greatness. 

Louise Magee and Karen Morgan will bring the legendary racehorse to meet Ryan.

Also making an appearance is the man who helped make Conor McGregor a star, coach John Kavanagh.

He will be on to talk about his battle to get the controversial sport of MMA recognised in Ireland and how it has helped change lives and also give his take on what's next for the notorious UFC fighter and his own coaching career.

In summer 1985, a strange phenomenon swept Ireland – reports of moving statues abounded and Ryan will be joined by two of the people who were there to witness this uniquely Irish story as it unfolded, Ballinspittle’s Patricia Bowen and Monasterevin’s John Miller.

Former Ireland international soccer player turned pundit and psychotherapist Richie Sadlier will tell us why we are failing a generation of young people by not talking openly and honestly about sex.

He’ll be telling viewers why he is on a mission to educate teenagers about sex, porn and consent. 

There's all that plus music from Dervish.

So make sure to tune in to RTÉ One, Friday, April 12 at 9.35pm.
