It's The Late Late Show Valentine's Day special this week - here's the lineup

This is usually one of the more, eh, entertaining Late Late shows.

It’s that time of year when, for a few hours at least, the studios of our national broadcaster more resemble a nightclub at 2am than a serious place of work.

The audience will consist of 200 rowdy, and possibly tipsy, singletons who will hear advice from a ‘Panel of Love’ consisting of radio hosts Doireann Garrihy, Eoghan McDermott and country singer Philomena Begley.

There will be cheesy chat up lines. There will be cringe.

We’ll also hear from older couples who will reveal their secrets for keeping the romance alive through the years.

80’s pop diva Sinitta will perform one of her biggest hits and then join Ryan for a chat, as will The Young Offenders stars Alex Murphy, Chris Walley, Hilary Rose and PJ Gallagher.


The good sports that are Dancing With the Stars contestant Rob Heffernan and wife Marian will also take part in a ‘Mr and Mrs’ style game.

Musical performances on the night come from ‘China in Your Hand’ singer T’Pauas well as country legend Mike Denver.

You don’t want to miss this one.

The Late Late Show airs at 9.35 pm on Friday.
