Ryan Tubridy has teased a "great" line-up for this Friday's Late Late Show, with Sinn Féin leader Mary Lou McDonald among the guests.

Speaking on his RTÉ Radio 1 show on Wednesday morning, the host said he would be talking to Mary Lou McDonald about her recovery from Covid-19, the General Election result, recent political developments and more.

"Given that she tested positive, she'll have an insight into the virus, that the others haven't, and with that in mind I look forward to hearing what she has to say about it," he said.

"I'll tell you who else is on the show in the next day or two," he continued. "But, weirdly, we have a great show lined up - I daresay it aother great show. 

"We like what we do and we hope to keep you entertained right up until the end of May, at which point we will be going on our TV summer holidays. But our radio show continues apace - we won't be going anywhere."
