As Ireland's Olympic hopefuls prepare to head to Japan this summer, Friday night's Late Late Show will see Ryan Tubridy speak with our Irish Olympic medallists and rising stars of the future in a special final show of the season.

Katie Taylor, World Champion boxer and Olympic gold medallist, will speak to Ryan for her first in-depth Late Late Show interview since turning professional five years ago.

As they enter the final weeks of preparation for Tokyo 2021, we will be joined by Team Ireland Athletes including Natalya Coyle (modern pentathlon), Brendan Irvine (flyweight boxer), Nhat Nguyen (badminton), Aoife Cooke (marathon runner), and Rhys McClenaghan (gymnast), as they discuss their journey to the Olympics. 

Trica Heberle, Chef de Mission Team Ireland, and Peter Sherrard, CEO of the Olympic Federation of Ireland, will also be in studio to discuss the unprecedented hurdles faced to get to the Olympic Games this year. 

As she celebrates 21 years since taking a silver medal in one of the most thrilling finals of Sydney 2000, Ryan will talk to Sonia O'Sullivan from her new base in the USA about her incredible Olympic medal win.

Star of The Late Late Toy Show Adam King returns with his family and news of a special gift from a very important person which was hand-delivered to their home in Cork and is simply out of this world!

After the success of the recent Commitments music feature, The Late Late Show Soul Band is back. This time fronted by Lucia Evans, the band will treat us to brilliant live music to close out the season.
