Former President of Ireland Mary Robinson and Back to the Future star Michael J Fox are among the guest for Friday's Late Late Show.

Michael J Fox will be speaking to Ryan Tubridy about the legacy of his best-known films, the work of his foundation — which is researching a cure for Parkinson's disease — and how he is very much looking forward to turning 60.

Thirty years to the month when she shattered the glass ceiling becoming the first woman to win the Irish presidency, Mary Robinson will reflect on that ground-breaking moment. She'll also be telling viewers why Covid has lessons for us in the fight against climate change, whether Joe Biden's election might make a difference and why The Elders spoke out about Donald Trump's refusal to enable a smooth transition of power.


Michael J Fox and Mary Robinson will be among the guests for Friday night's Late Late Show.

The stars of Irish Women in Harmony including Ruth Anne, Aimée, Moya Brennan, Sibeal, Laoiseand Erica Cody will be in studio with a very special performance of their Christmas single in aid of ISPCC, Together at Christmas.

Social media sensations The Fleming'swill be talking about how they have danced their way through lockdown at home in Kerry, keeping their spirits up since March while also entertaining the nation.

During the show, Tubridy will also take a look through the stunning collection of images from Old Ireland in Colour, a book that brings the past to spectacular life by adding colour to black and white photos of Irish daily life between the 1870s and 1960s. The result is an arresting portrait of Irish society and culture during a time of immense change.

Plus, there will be a performance in studio from Dublin rapper Malaki with his unique take on Van Morrison's Someone Like You.
