Presenter Craig Doyle, known best for his 6-year stint on BBC's Holiday show, has been given the helm of the Saturday night slot on RTE. He's in to talk to us about his new show.
Craig will be taking over the Saturday night hot seat left vacant by Ryan Tubridy last spring. His show 'Tonight with Craig Doyle' starts on Saturday the 10th of April at 9.50pm.
The chat show will have a slick, cool, relaxed vibe. There will be an emphasis on having a bit of fun on a Saturday night. Fun, light, broad entertainment. There will be a house band on set with Roberta Howett (former X Factor contestant) as the lead singer. Craig will be chatting to favourite Irish faces and international celebs. There will be a musical act and comedy act each week. RTE Press
