Robert Plant will sing with his partner, folk star Patty Griffin, on this weekend's Saturday Night Show. Also joining host Brendan O'Connor will be former Coronation Street star Kevin Kennedy who played Curly Watts, and Love/Hate dentist Peter O'Meara. 

The Grammy-winning Griffin will be accompanied by Plant on the show ahead of her gigs this month in Dublin, Cork and Dundalk in support of her new album American Kid.

Brendan will also chat to Kennedy, aka Curly Watts from Coronation Street, about his battle with booze, his road to recovery, the importance of Irish roots and his love of music.

As Love/Hate gears up to a dramatic finale this Sunday, O'Meara talks about the success of the show, why he’s now so unpopular with Irish dentists, and his life as an actor in LA working on CSI:New York and Without a Trace.   

Also on the programme is actor Simon Delaney who is directing Christmas Panto Beauty and The Beast starring Jedward.

The Saturday Night Show airs on RTÉ One on Saturday at 9.50pm
