International superstar Lady Gaga is among guests appearing on this week’s Late Late show.

Viewers are in for a treat as she joins Ryan Tubridy from London to chat about her new movie ‘House of Gucci’. Gaga plays Patrizia Reggiani in the new movie alongside Adam Driver, who plays her husband Maurizio Gucci.

The 35-year-old took her role in the flick so seriously that she lived as her character for a year and a half during filming both on and off-camera. The biographical crime drama is about a 1995 murder-for-hire plot masterminded by Patrizia who had her husband, head of the Gucci fashion house, murdered outside his office in a case that rocked Italy.

Ryan will also chat to the Oscar winner about her own experience with bullying and her friendship with fellow musician Tony Bennett.

“Lady Gaga is a pop-cultural phenomenon, whatever she turns her hand to seems to shine from the Grammys to her Oscar, she is a fascinating mega-star. I cannot wait to talk to her,” Ryan said. House of Gucci is set to be released in Irish cinemas on Friday November 26th.

She’s not the only singer on the show, Ireland’s own Ronan Keating will be on the show to chat about his new album ‘Songs from Home' and why coming back to Ireland after lockdown was an emotional experience. Ronan will also be joined by his wife Storm for a very special performance. The 44-year-old currently lives in the UK with his wife and their children Cooper and Coco.

Former President Mary McAleese will also be on the talk show to discuss her new documentary ‘With God on our Side’ and why she believes a united Ireland is coming. The Belfast woman released her memoir ‘Here’s The Story’ in 2020.

As Ireland’s World Cup qualifying campaign draws to a close this weekend, Tubridy will be joined by soccer analysts Eamon Dunphy and Liam Brady as they give their verdict on Stephen Kenny’s tenure so far. The pair will also discuss their memories of Dalymount Park, home to Dublin side Bohemians FC, as the ground is set to close next year for redevelopment.

History lovers are in for a real treat too. 100 years after the signing of The Anglo-Irish Treaty, Orlaith McBride brings a treasure trove of priceless items from The National Archives into The Late Late studio.

That’s not all, Irish singer-songwriter Glen Hansard will be in the studio singing an Oscar-worthy performance of 'Gold' from the movie ‘Once’.

It comes as the Dublin man celebrates 15 years since the film was released. He starred in the 2007 film alongside Markéta Irglová. The pair won an Oscar for their original song ‘Falling Slowly’. They will mark the anniversary of the film, which was shot in Dublin, by touring together in the United States. They will visit six cities as part of the tour. The movie was turned into a Tony award winning Broadway musical that debuted in New York in 2012.

The Late Late Show airs on RTÉ One, on Friday, November 12th at 9:35 pm
