Mrs Brown

She is one of Ireland's most popular entertainers with a reputation for down to Earth wisdom, a 'unique' way with words and some outrageous behaviour - and she didn't disappoint! Brendan O'Carroll's alter-ego Mrs Brown had the audience almost in tears as she explained how to survive a recession, and why she's given up on men - but she made an exception for Ryan! Her new DVD 'Mrs Brown's Bloomers' is in the shops now.

Ritchie Fitzgerald & Gabe Davis

Ritchie and Gabe have taken extreme sports to the limit. They spoke to Ryan about putting their lives on the line to surf the most dramatic and dangerous waves in the world. Their pursuit of perfection continuously brings them back to the West of Ireland and the 50 foot waves they have caught off its coast. Their story has been captured in a breathtaking new film "Waveriders" which goes on general release April the 3rd.

Holly Willoughby

 She is one of the most glamorous women on television and has entertained millions as the host of "Dancing On Ice" and the "Xtra Factor"
Holly spoke about the 'lovely', 'supportive' and 'terrifying' simon Cowell, having her pregnancy announced live on-air and the rumours of her  co-hosting this morning with her "Dancing On Ice" partner, Philip Schofield.

Bernard Dunne

In his last appearance he promised he'd return as World Champion, and he came back to deliver the belt! After a standing Ovation WBA Super Bantamweight World champion Bernard Dunne gave his best interview yet as he spoke to Ryan about that unforgettable fight, his children's reactions and an exhausting visit to Lazy Town!

Brian Kennedy

He is one of Ireland's most successful artists and in the twenty years since he first hit the charts he's represented Ireland at Eurovision, and performed with Bob Dylan, Ray Charles and Van Morrisson. He's about to embark on a nationwide tour beginning at the Cork Opera House on 11th April. Brian performed his classic "Message in the Box" for us, while Ryan, Bernad and a very tactile Mrs Brown said hello to the audience!
