Here's who will be on The Late Late Show this week

The Late Late Show on Friday is certain to raise a few laughs with a host of comedians set to appear.

Pat Shortt and Tommy Tiernan will join presenter Ryan Tubridy to talk about their new film, Dark Lies the Island.

The black comedy is set in a small Irish town over a week-long period and follows the characters involved in a long standing family feud.

It also stars Moe Dunford, Peter Coonan and Charlie Murphy.

Doireann Garrihy will also be on the couch, talking about her year which saw her join 2FM as a breakfast DJ.

As well as talking about the second season of her comedy sketch show The Doireann Project, Garrihy will discuss dealing with online bullies.

Fresh from being announced as a contestant on ITV show Dancing on Ice, soccer player Kevin Kilbane will be talking to Ryan.

The Irish international will be talking about feeling Irish whilst living in Britain in the Brexit era, his love of Mayo football, and his devastation at the loss of his father.

Sophia Murphy is also set to join Ryan on Firday's show.

John Murphy pleaded guilty to the sexual assault and rape of his eldest daughter Sophia from the ages of 3 to 15. But despite testifying against him, Sophia holds no bitterness or resentment towards her father.

"Her story is one of triumph and courage over trauma and adversity and she will join us tomorrow to share it on television for the first time," said a RTÉ statement.
