The line-up for tonight's Late Late Show has been announced as Ryan Tubridy and the team "welcome back our largest audience for the first time in almost two years with open arms".

The Late Late says the studio audience will "include people from all walks of life including rugby fans, frontline workers, teachers, hairdressers and more from all corners of the country".

As the Irish rugby teams prepare for this year's Six Nations campaign, Ryan will be chatting to Grand Slam winners Jamie Heaslip, Peter Stringer and Fiona Coghlan.

They will talk about Ireland's prospects in this year's men's and women's competitions; how playing in front of a full crowd is the boost they need, and the current situation with the women's game after that letter.

Kildare GAA All-Star footballer Mary Hulgraine will be on the show to discuss how she kicked her addiction to Oxycontin and alcohol to make a return to the Kildare Senior Women's team.

Ryan will catch up with 14-year-old harpist Úna Walsh, who inspired children all over the country when she performed on last year's Late Late Toy Show. Úna and her mother Barbara will share her extraordinary story about living with her hearing impairment and how new technology has transformed her life.
