Here's who will join the host of A-lister on this Friday's Late Late

It has already been reported that the A-list cast of Daddy’s Home 2 will be making an appearance on the Late Late show this Friday.

Mark Wahlberg, Will Ferrell, Mel Gibson and John Lithgow will be chatting about working together on the film and how the bane of every Irish father’s life – the immersion – features in one of the funniest scenes.

Gibson will be chatting about his friendship with President Michael D Higgins, filming Braveheart in Ireland and his strong ties to Longford.

He even attempts to beat Ferrell, another son of ‘The O’Farrell County’, in a “Longford-off”.

All four also addressed the ongoing fallout from the allegations against Harvey Weinstein, Kevin Spacey and others in Hollywood.

Also on The Late Late Show this weekend, comedian Peter Kay will be dropping by to tickle funny bones along with Alison Spittle who is putting the Midlands on the map with her critically acclaimed new show Nowhere Fast.
