Tonight's RTE Late Late Show guests revealed

After a lively debate on Prime Time earlier this week, presenter David McCullagh will be live in studio following the polls closing to deliver the RTÉ / Red C Exit Poll result in the race to the Áras.

Catherine Corless, the historian who uncovered details of a mass grave at the former Mother and Babies Home in Tuam, will join Ryan to give her thoughts on the Government’s decision this week to initiate a forensic excavation at the site. Catherine last appeared on the Late Late Show in 2017, receiving a standing ovation from the audience after an extremely powerful interview.

From aristocracy, to rock royalty, Dublin actor Allen Leech joins Ryan to chat about what it was like to achieve worldwide fame playing Tom Branson in the critically acclaimed Downton Abbey, and his role as Freddie Mercury’s manager in the highly anticipated movie, Bohemian Rhapsody.

He’s one of the GAA’s most talked about personalities, and an All-Ireland winning hurler and manager. Davy Fitzgerald joins Ryan to chat about his legacy, his fiery reputation, and the latest season of Ireland’s Fittest Family which kicks off on Sunday.

In April, Sean Cox went to Anfield to watch his beloved Liverpool in action in the Champions League, but ended up fighting for his life. Ryan is joined by Sean’s wife Martina Cox, to discuss how the family’s life was changed forever on that evening.

Comedian Des Bishop will be in studio to talk about our obsession with Netflix and carvery dinners, and there will be music from Bell X1 and Gavin James.
