Ryan Tubridy is looking for over 200 singletons to join him for "probably the most bonkers show in The Late Late Show calendar", the Valentine's Special.

Applications are now open for the show on Friday, February 14 with Ryan and the team keen to hear from "eligible lads and ladies who aren't camera shy, are game for a laugh and who are, most importantly, definitely looking for love". 

"It's a show that brings out the wild in people, and that's what we want!" said the host-turned-wingman. 

"Your time is now, the place is here"

"We want people to come and join us in the assembly hall of dating destiny. We are opening our doors, our hearts and our arms to the singletons of this country. Your time is now, the place is here, so apply for true love...or at least love for 24 hours..."

Hopefuls must be over 18, and when filling in applications must let the Late Late Show know "a little about their single life, why they are looking for love and their experiences of what the dating scene is like in Ireland". 

Here are some of the highlights from last year's Valentine's Special:
