We've quite a few Eurovision legends to choose from in Ireland and one of those stars is joining Ryan Tubridy for Friday's Late Late Show.

No, it's not Linda Martin performing again.  It's three time winner (if you count Why Me which he wrote for Linda in 1992) Johnny Logan.

He'll be reminiscing about the contest, sharing stories, and giving his take on his mini me Brendan Murray's chances of victory in Kiev next week.

There's also a EuroSingSong in the offing with Marty Whelan, country star Cliona Hagan, Eurovision superfan Mairead Ronan, Crystal Swing's Derek Burke, Eurovision winner Paul Harrington, and Moone Boy's Ronan Johnston will be competing with a variety of Eurovision songs.

If Eurovision isn't your thing you can hold out for an interview with horse trainer Jessica Harrington who will be in studio to talk about her Irish Grand National, Cheltenham gold Cup and Punchestown Gold Cup success.

Meanwhile, Bernard O'Shea will be telling viewers about the ten things he wants to see the back of in Ireland in 2017 and students who took part in the Student Enterprise Programme Final will be showing off their innovations.

Also Ryan will leave the studio to meet some of the walkers taking part in Pieta House's Darkness into Light.

Late Late Show, RTE One 9.35pm.
