Liverpudlian country singer Nathan Carter will pay tribute to the victims of the Hillsborough disaster on this week's Late Late Show.

Carter will perform a song written specially to honour the 96 people who lost their lives at a football match between Liverpool and Nottingham Forest in April 1989.

Former Liverpool star and ex-England manager Kevin Keegan, who stood by the families of victims as they fought for justice, will also join Ryan Tubridy in studio to talk about the disaster, his career, and that time he appeared on the Late Late with a bear.

In the wake of her election victory Senator Lynn Ruane will share her story.  She dropped out of school and became a single mum in her teens before going back to college.

This week she followed in the footsteps of Mary Robinson and Noel Browne fighting for social justice in Seanad Éireann.

Hugely popular RTE meteorologist Joanna Donnelly will appear with her husband, fellow meteorologist Harm Luijx, to explain why our weather is nuts.

Another debate will take place in studio this week with a panel including INM crime correspondent Paul Williams, solicitor Kieran Cleary and former assistant commissioner Martin Donnellan debating whether or not it's time the Gardaí were armed.

As well as his musical performance, Nathan Carter will chat to Tubs about his new album and will be on hand to help the Late Late to find the best jivers in Ireland.

Additional music will come courtesy of Lake Street Drive and JK & the Straight Show.

Late Late Show, RTE One, Friday, 9.35pm.
