'The Late Late Show' and its 61st season is in full swing, and here's who Ryan has in store for us on this week's edition.

The second 'Late Late Show' episode of 2022 will have Taoiseach Micheál Martin answering Ryan's questions about the ever-changing restrictions that Ireland has been dealing with for nearly three years. He is expected to provide an update on the current situation on managing the outbreak of Covid-19, which currently includes all bars, restaurants, art and theatre events to close by 8 pm.

RTÉ presenter Kathryn Thomas joins the show tomorrow night, just as 'Operation Transformation' returns to the channel for its 15th season. She will be joined by the five new leaders for 2022, who are John Ryan, Stefano Sweetman, Kathleen Hurley Mullins, Katie Jones and Sarah O'Connor Ryan. The five participants will embark on a health and wellness journey with the main intention to reset and kick-start a new chapter in their lives.

In terms of music on the night, 'The Late Late Show' will host a special TradFest music session with some of the country’s most-talented Irish musicians. The line-up on the night will include Mike Hanrahan (Stockton's Wing), Niamh Dunne (Beoga), Dara and Mick Healy (Boxing Banjo), Bridín, Mairead Ni Mhaonaigh (Altan) with Séamus and Caoimhe Ui Fhlatharta.

'The Late Late Show' airs this Friday at 9:35 pm on RTÉ One.
