Here's tonight's Late Late Show line-up

Here's a look at who'll be joining Ryan on the sofa tonight...

Love/Hate and Dunkirk actor Barry Keoghan will drop by to talk to Ryan about his difficult upbringing, and making it big as an actor - first on Love/Hate and then on major blockbuster war flick Dunkirk. Keoghan will also discuss his new film American Animals, and the making of The Killing of a Sacred Deer.

Former personal-shopper turned TV star, and one half of the UK's most well known lifestyle show duos, Trinny Woodall will take to the stage to discuss how she made a career in fashion first as a designer, and later as a television presenter on the show 'What not to Wear' hosted by Trinny and Susannah (Constantine). She'll also talk to Ryan about her struggle to conceive - she went through a shocking nine rounds of IVF and two miscarriages - before finally becoming pregnant with her daughter.

Dublin band Kodaline will be in studio to talk about their life as one of Ireland's most well known bands, and performing their latest single.

Ken O'Sullivan, creator of the new nature series 'Ireland's Deep Atlantic' will be in to talk about how he captured his incredible footage off the west coast of Ireland.

Ryan will hear from a 25-year-old woman, Laura Brennan, who has been diagnosed with terminal cervical cancer. She will be talking to Ryan about why she believes that the controversial HPV vaccine is so important for young girls.

There'll also be music from Supertonic Sound Club.

The Late Late Show, RTÉ One, Friday at 9.35pm.
