The first Canadian astronaut to walk in space, Commander Chris Hadfield, will join Ray on Saturday night to talk about his new children's book The Darkest Dark and how he overcame his fear of the dark as a child and why it is important it is to always dream big.

And the popular astronaut will reveal why he is back in Dublin.

Grease superstar Olivia Newtown-John will also be in the studio, ahead of the movie's 40-year anniversary. The Australian actress will be joined by her friends, singers Amy Sky and Beth Nielsen Chapman, and will take about her journey as a breast cancer survivor.

The Ray D'Arcy Show will be on the earlier time of 9.25pm on RTE One this Saturday.
