Several members of the family of the late Jason Corbett, who was murdered by his wife Molly Martens and father-in-law Thomas Martens will appear on tomorrow night's Late Late Show.

In August last year, Molly and her father Tom were convicted of the second-degree murder of the businessman at his North Carolina home in August 2015.

Jason's death caused shockwaves across Ireland and the US and the Late Late Show will be their first major Irish television interview since the murder trial.

Tracey Corbett-Lynch, along with siblings Wayne Corbett and Marilyn Corbett, will discuss the terrible events that lead to Jason’s death, the trauma of the subsequent trial for his family and how they are doing now that his killers are behind bars.

Also on Friday night two of the teenagers who feature in RTE's new documentary My Trans Life will share their stories.  Luke O'Reilly Kane and his mum Maura and Nicky Manning will speak about their journeys and the struggles they have faced since coming out as trans.

Majella O'Donnell will also be in studio to talk about the new series of B&B Road Trip and Ryan will also interview The Hairy Bikers Si King and Dave Myers who have lost stones in weight and will be sharing the secret of their weight loss and how you don’t need to give up good food when you’re dropping the pounds.

Former Leinster player Ian McKinley was forced to retire from rugby after an eye injury left him unable to play. But with the help of some specialised goggles he got back on the pitch again and now he’s part of the Italian national side.

Also, in celebration of the Royal Wedding, which takes place on Saturday, Friday night's show will see the brides of Ireland competing in their wedding dresses to prove who knows Meghan and Harry best.  Music, meanwhile, will come courtesy of Altan and Robert Mizzell.

Over with Graham Norton on the BBC guests include Leon Bridges, David Tennant, Gloria Estefan, Emilia Clarke, and Miriam Margoyles.

The Late Late Show, Friday, May 18th at 9.35pm.  The Graham Norton Show, BBC One, 11.05pm.
