The line-up for Friday’s episode of RTE One’s Late Late Show has been revealed, and joining Ryan Tubridy this weekend is none other than country music legend Dolly Parton.

This will be the second time Dolly will be appearing on the show in the last two months.

Back in December, viewers dubbed the Queen of Country a ‘class act’ when she featured on the Late Late Show’s Country Music Christmas special.

Dolly won’t be the only musical hero appearing this Friday though, as she will be joined by Bee Gees co-founder Barry Gibb.

A special Bee Gees musical medley will be performed on the night.

The pair will discuss their established careers as musical royalty and why they have collaborated on a new album together.

A teaser for the episode shows Dolly singing a snippet from her hit song ‘Islands in the Stream’ where she changes the lyrics to suit the Irish audience.

Also appearing on the show is Eve Hewson, daughter of Bono and Ali Hewson, who will be speaking about her role in Netflix’s newest thriller ‘Behind Her Eyes.’

Eve will also be reminiscing on her childhood and revealing what it was like to grow up as Bono’s daughter in Ireland.

Trish Kearney is also a guest on tomorrow night’s episode where she will be telling her harrowing story.

The former swimmer will be recounting the horrific sexual abuse she endured as a teenager at the hands of coach George Gibney.

The jam-packed evening of entertainment will also feature live music from singer-songwriter Megan O’Neill and Tubs will chat to comedian Pat Shortt and daughter Faye Shortt, who will discuss teaming up as a comedy duo.

Watch The Late Late Show this Friday night at 9.35pm on RTÉ One.
