Tubridy posted the news on Instagram saying: “We’re getting ready for an amazing Late Late Show tomorrow night, it’s a tribute to Sharon Shannon, but also… I think we need to bring back young Adam King.”
On last week's show, which was viewed by over 1.5 million people, Adam talked about his love of space and his dream of one day becoming a capsule communicator for NASA.
Adam suffers from brittle bones and spends most of his time in a wheelchair. He explained to Ryan that even though he wouldn't be able to be an astronaut in space he could still work for NASA on the ground.

The six-year-old boy has inspired the country with his words and dreams of one day working for the space administration.
After his appearance on the show last week everyone was talking about Adam King, even NASA.
They tweeted offering the boy a spot on their team when he's ready! "Adam’s kind heart and adventurous spirit inspires us," they said. "There’s space for everybody at NASA, and we can’t wait for him to one day join our team of dreamers. We’ll be here when he’s ready."
Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield also messaged the young boy after seeing the clip on him on the show, saying: “Adam – I’ve been lucky enough to CAPCOM many spaceflights. We should talk space together. Take care, be good – Chris.”
