Henry Winkler

Our first guest of the evening had the audience laughing from start to finish - in his role as "The Fonze" with his leather jacket, perfectly sculpted hair and amazing way with the ladies he became an instant tv icon and turned "Happy Days" into one of the most popular and enduring TV shows ever. Henry talked about the iconic part, turning down the lead in the movie 'Grease' and discovering he had dyslexia at the age of 31. His 8th children's book in the popular series "Hank Zipzer: World's Greatest Underachiever" is out now.

Adam Carroll

Young, handsome and Irish, Adam Carroll is causing a stir in the world of Motor Sport. He drove a bike at three and a half, had his first driving lesson at the age of eight and has beaten the likes of Lewis Hamilton in his journey to the top. Ireland's newest World champion joined Ryan to talk about winning the A1 Grand Prix series, his Formula one hopes, and why he's no international Playboy!

Mary Kennedy & Marty Whelan

We caught up wirh Ireland's most popular onscreen couple to talk about capturing the hearts of the nation as the presenters of "Open House," and we put their friendship to the test in a very revealing game of Mr and Mrs! Finally, Mary took centre stage and treated us to a rendition of her party piece "Edelweiss" while Marty and Ryan joined in!

Spandau Ballet

80's legends Spandau Ballet flew in to chat to Ryan about living in Dublin in the 80s, lawsuits and getting back together. In one of their first performances since re-forming the band blew the audience away with a fantastic rendition of their classic hit "Gold"!
