    This week, Kay Burley (who isn't really) will be talking about dodging the 'rona, which led to her dodging the day job when Sky suspended her for six months after having a party during lockdown.

    Actually, no. She'll be discussing UK politics (better not mention Boris' parties then), the NI elections, and how sexist the male MPs on the Westminster estate are. Maybe she'll mention all the manufactured furore created by the chavvy labour one who thought it was funny to pretend she was flashing BoJo from across the chamber. We'll see.

    On another note-she's 60! Jaysus.

    "Broadcaster Kay Burley will join Ryan Tubridy to chat about what Boris Johnson is really like, why attitudes to women in the House of Commons are 30 years behind the rest of the world and what the results of the Northern Ireland Assembly Elections might mean for relations on these islands."

    Moving to all matters military, a prominent member of our (highly regarded internationally) Special Forces is present to talk about managing oneself in difficult situations, with death, mayhem and misery all around you.

    Ideal preparation for a Late Late interview, one would have thought.

    "From the hills of south Lebanon to the snow-covered Balkans and the monsoon jungles of Southern Asia, former Irish Special Forces Deputy Commander and Special Forces: Ultimate Hell Week leader Ray Goggins knows what it is like to enter a warzone.

    As the war in Ukraine continues, he'll be discussing what those on the ground can expect over there, how to deal with a crisis and how the military mindset can be channelled into tackling any situation."

    I have no idea what Junk Kouture (?) is...making clothes from throwaway items maybe? Either way, I hope the kids enjoy the experience.

    "Junk Kouture is back for its 12th year and some of the finalists will be on the show to demonstrate their amazing creations where they turn everyday junk into "Kouture".

    Over 300 secondary schools have taken part and the 10 finalists will be strutting their stuff to represent Ireland at the World Final later this year in Abu Dhabi."

    On the music front, Sharon Shannon will be making the trip from Galway to squeeze some sound from her box, to the manly accompaniment of some Hothouse Flowers and others as they burst forth together-for Charidee!

    Also The Blizzards will be sharing their carpet burns with the be-masked audience. Or something like that, at least.

    "The Late Late will have a special performance and chat with music stars Sharon Shannon, Liam Ó Maonlaí and Fiachna Ó Braonáin from Hothouse Flowers, Lucia Evans and Steve Wickham, as they join together for a new charity album Songs for Rosabel.

    Plus, ahead of their hugely anticipated album Sometimes We See More In The Dark, Mullingar rock band The Blizzards are back on the show and will perform Friction Burns."
