Mrs Brown’s Boys star Brendan O’Carroll leads the line-up on The Late Late Show this Friday.

Host Ryan Tubridy will be catching up with Brendan about all things Mrs Brown's Boys, as well as giving his take on Donald Trump and filling viewers in on what it was like to literally be in the eye of the storm as Hurricane Irma swept through Florida.

Fresh from collecting his fifth All-Ireland medal, Dublin footballer Philly McMahon talks about how life could have been very different for him, as opens up about the huge impact his brother’s drug-related death had on him and his family.

The state of the nation will be up for discussion with politician Fidelma Healy Eames, journalist Kitty Holland and columnist Terry Prone on the panel.

Ireland’s favourite wedding planner Franc (aka Peter Kelly) is back helping Irish brides to find their perfect gown in Say Yes To the Dress Ireland, so he’ll be chatting about all things wedding-related and how his business survived the recession.

Fr Joe McDonald has long called for a more open and welcoming Catholic Church and joins Ryan to explain why he believes the Church has failed Jesus and the Gospel.

Plus there's music from Nathan Carter, and Electric Eddie joins Ryan as three amateur singers battle it out to take the Late Late Karaoke crown.
