Comedian Reginald D Hunter, Falklands War hero Simon Weston and veteran reporter Valerie Cox will join previously announced  guests Hozier and George Hook.

Hozier will talk global success, that 'difficult' second album, and he'll field questions from some of his biggest fans.

Also, in the week that specialists at Tallaght Hospital identified injuries in teenage players normally associated with violent trauma, rugby pundit George Hook will be in studio to give his tuppence worth on the issue of rugby becoming an increasingly higher impact game.

Veteran radio reporter Valerie Cox announed her retirement this week and she'll e in studio to reflect on her amazing career and will reveal how a recent visit to the Greek island of Kos to cover the refugee crisis for a television documentary shook her to her core and convinced her that Ireland is shirking its responsibilities.

Also joining Ryan in studio will be Simon Weston who became an iconic symbol of the terrible impact of war when he suffered severe burns to his face after his ship was bombed during the Falklands War.

Also comedian Reginald D Hunter will talk about making it big as a US stand-up on this side of the Atlantic while music will come courtesy of Hozier, Little Green Cars, and Aoife Scott.

The Late Late Show, RTÉ One, Friday at 9.35pm.
