Brian Dowling and Arthur Gourounlian are on the Late Late tonight

Patrick McCarry

C’est la Vie!

The line-up for tonight’s Late Late Show is here if you’re planning on sitting in tonight.

The RTÉ talk show has released its line-up for its next show, from 9:35 pm on Friday, and there is a nice mix of music, sport, celebrity, and a couple of real-life tales that should engross many viewers. The show blurbs reads:

’25 years after they stormed the world with C’est la VieB*Witched are back. On Friday’s show, Edele and Keavy Lynch, Sinéad O’Carroll and Lindsay Armaou will join Ryan Tubridy to chat about their record-breaking run at the top of the charts, the impact of their break-up and rocking the double denim again for their new single Birthday.

‘Big Brother champion Brian Dowling Gourounlian and his husband, Dancing with the Stars judge Arthur Gourounlian will chat to Ryan about their surrogacy journey and the birth of their baby Blake. They will be joined by Brian’s sister Aoife Dowling who was their surrogate. They will share the highs and lows of their surrogacy journey ahead of the release of their new documentary Brian & Arthur’s Very Modern Family.’

Late Late Show

Davy Fitzgerald on Late Late Show

Entrepreneur and broadcaster Spencer Matthews will speak about his new documentary Finding Michael which sees him retrace his late brother’s last steps on Mount Everest before he disappeared during his descent in 1999. The RTÉ blurb continues:

‘He has just become a Dad again at 51, he’s back in the Waterford dressing room as manager for a second time and he has also taken on one of his biggest challenges yet as he mentors a group of 18-24-year-old lads who are facing difficulties in their lives as he prepares them for a big trek in Iceland in the series return of Davy’s Toughest Team. It’s fair to say Davy Fitzgerald is not slowing down, he will speak with Ryan on Friday about his ongoing zest for life.

‘We will have music from Louth artist David Keenan and will perform his viral hit perform El Paso, which he wrote when he was just 14 years old, as an ode to his native town of Dundalk.’

All that and your usual helping of Ryan Tubridy banter, competitions, and, one would hope, something for everybody in the audience.
