    This weeks blurb features a slot of self love from the production team, channelling Hobbidy himself, who is seemingly as excited by self praise, as he is by illness and DEATH.

    Revel in how great they are, these denizens of Montrosia! Not one word of mention for those who actually did the donating...

    "This Friday night marks the final Late Late Show of 2021 at the end of an extraordinary year, which began in January with the live vaccinations of healthcare workers," says the Late Late.

    "Throughout the year, the Late Late brought the Irish Diaspora together in a global session on St Patrick's night, gave a much-needed leg-up to Irish business on the Taking Care of Business special, put the children in charge for a record-breaking Toy Show and raised another €6.6 million for children's charities through the Toy Show Appeal - bringing the total of monies raised for Irish charities on the Late Late Show in 2020/2021 to an incredible €26 million!

    In this weeks epic, we are asked to dig deep once again, this time for what is probably among the most abused charitable organisation on this island, the Society of St. Vincent De Paul. Make your own choices on THAT one, in the knowledge that the biggest beneficiary may well be the ego of one R. Tubridy, Monkstown.

    "The guests have been announced for the Late Late Show St Vincent de Paul Annual Appeal Special, with Colin Farrell, Andrea Corr, Brendan O'Carroll, Jenny Gibney, Ronnie Wood, Majella O'Donnell and more all set for Friday night."

    (I'm a bit surprised to see Ronnie Wood in there, to be honest.)

    O'Caddle again...jaysus.

    "Writer, producer, actor and comedian Brendan O'Carroll will be joined on the couch by his wife, business partner and co-star Jenny Gibney to talk about their special connection to the St Vincent de Paul charity and their plans for a proper family Christmas at home in Ireland."

    Majella again...jaysus. Again. The jockey was only on a fortnight ago.

    "Hollywood actor and proud Dubliner Colin Farrell will be lending his support to the call for St Vincent de Paul as will the irrepressible Majella O'Donnell."

    Pat Shortt again...jaysus. Again, again. They'll have a job concealing that Bertie-esque nose. I have fallen out with Pat after he put a take-down request on a (tribute) Youtube video I had up, which had gotten more views than his own one...

    "And it's a family affair as father Pat Shortt and daughter Faye will be on the show to talk about their plans for Christmas and an update on their comedy duo act."

    Also, some TikTok fella.

    Music by Andrea Corr and Ronnie Wood (ah, that explains THAT), as well as Susan O'Neill.

    Postscript: Ronnie has/had cancer, but I bet it won't be mentioned...
