It looks like Miriam O'Callaghan is hoping to emulate the success of The Late Late Show Valentine's Special with an episode of her chat show dedicated to dating on Saturday.

Saturday Night with Miriam will take a look at old fashioned dating in the digital age with an interview with matchmaker Willy Daly of Lisdoonvarna Matchmaking Festival fame.  Willy will be joined in studio by his daughter Elsha.

In keeping with the dating theme Mairead Loughman, who runs dating service Table for Six will also be on the show and six singletons will take part in a Table for Six style date live on air.

Elsewhere on the show celebrity chef Rachel Allen will be joined by her son Lucca who, at 15, is the first Formula 4 driver to come from Ireland. 

Returning to duet once more will be Tommy Fleming and Anne Herlihy.  Anne had the chance to tick an item off her bucket list in the last series when she sang with Tommy.  They'll be back to talk about the friendship that blossomed after the show.

Saturday Night with Miriam continues this Saturday night at 9:20pm on RTÉ One
