Pandemic policing, life in “zero Covid” New Zealand and finding love in a pandemic are all on the agenda for this week’s The Late Late Show, as the show has revealed its line up.

Garda Commissioner Drew Harris will join host Ryan Tubridy to speak about his time in charge of the force to date, the work of the gardaí in policing the pandemic, and the challenges facing the force over the coming months.


Former Ireland rugby head coach Joe Schmidt will reveal what life is like living in New Zealand – a country pursing a “zero Covid” strategy in the pandemic. Schmidt will speak about his decision to leave Ireland and return home to New Zealand last year.

He will also give his thoughts on Ireland's prospects following their opening performance in the Six Nations, and look ahead to their clash with France this weekend.

Nod to love

Katie Price will speak with Tubridy about the complex needs of her eldest son Harvey as he turns 18.

With this Sunday being Valentine's Day, there will also be “a special nod to love” on Friday’s programme.


As First Dates Ireland returns to screens this week, Tubridy will be speaking to four singletons from the series about their experiences of trying to find love during a pandemic.

Internet comedy star Stevo Timothy will join Tubridy to talk about a “harrowing” life-changing event that made him reassess his life choices and embark on a different path.

Meanwhile, rising star Sorcha Richardson will be in studio for a performance of her single, Don't Talk About It.

The Late Late Show will air on Friday, February 12th on RTÉ One at 9.35pm.
