From Katie Hopkins to Katie Taylor - this week's Late Late Show lineup is much less divisive
Irish boxing champion Katie Taylor will join Ryan Tubridy on The Late Late Show this Friday for her first major television interview since turning professional.
Last week's Late Late drew much criticism for inviting controversial figure Katie Hopkins to speak on the show but this week's line-up features a very different Katie.
Bray boxer Katie Taylor will join Ryan to discuss making the leap from amateur to professional, as well as the emotional fall-out from her Rio 2016 defeat.
Olly Murs, one of the most successful acts from The X Factor, will be on the couch to talk about his recent break-up, his fifth album and perform his latest hit on the show.
Cocoa Brown founder Marissa Carter will tell The Late Late Show audience about her plans to crack the US market and she's going to be giving a live demonstration of the Kardashian's favourite - 3D tanning.
Also joining Ryan will be some extraordinary young people who are caring for their siblings. Aged between 13-and-16-years-old, we'll be hearing what life is like for these young carers and what needs to be done to give them more help.
Blindboy Boatclub from Rubberbandits will be filling viewers in on their unique philosophy for life. We'll also be hearing his strong views on the need to tackle mental health in Ireland.
Having been diagnosed with early on-set Alzheimer's five years ago, Helen Rochford Brennan will be sharing her story, alongside her son Martin, and telling viewers why she believes that people with the condition should be able to stay at home as long as possible.
The Late Late Show is on Friday at 9.35pm on RTE One.
