Staying In Tomorrow?

On The Late Late Show

Sarah Whiteacre writes:

The Late Late is celebrating all matters of the heart this Friday night with a show that would make even the most lovelorn soul weak at the knees.

Celebrity couple Vogue Williams and Spencer Matthews crossed paths on a reality TV show in 2017, and fast forward two years, they’re married with a baby. Joining host Ryan Tubridy in studio, the loved-up twosome will give away some secrets to the success of their relationship…

Known for his film adaptations of some of Shakespeare’s greatest love stories, actor Kenneth Branagh will join us to discuss his new movie All Is True, and why Ireland holds a special place in his heart…

There will be a host of audience games as we help our 200 singles to find that special someone, we’ll have music from Whigfield and Mickey Joe Harte and there’ll also be a performance from comedy dance duo Lords of Strut.

There is also €20,000 in cash up for grabs in this week’s viewer prize.

The Late Late Show, RTÉ One at 9.35pm.

Any excuse.

    I know what’ll happen. I’ll end up turning it on to see if I can catch Kenneth Branagh. I’ll see the end of Spencer and Vogue and will think “Ah, they’re not too bad” then I’ll enter the competition and will be ABSOLUTELY SURE that I’ve won it. Even when the donkey who wins it answers the phone.

    Whigfield, though. I mean, COME ON.

      I think Spencer and Vogue should be subjected to a Mr and Mrs style quiz like the Late Late did back in the 60s. Hopefully they’ll admit something scandalous enough to annoy the bishop of Armagh or someone equally shouty. It’ll liven up things

    “We’ll have music from Whigfield and Mickey Joe Harte” – ah jaysus, they’re even more determined to embarrass themselves than usual here

    I bet Branagh won’t even let on to his family and mates this he’s on with this lot:
    Sufferin’ Jazus – can it get any worse.

        Well Dermot Bannon was on his radio show yesterday and Operation transformation was on today so it must be Dancing with the Stars turn to go on Saturday.

    Instead of BS plugging this RTE pap and hail-feline well met dross for the Donnybrook Canteen PR team; why not offer an alternative and resurrect Broadsheet on the Telly with a running commentary from contributors as they watch this garbage. The new Goggle Box.

    I’ll in out. And for the one coming about Ray D’Arcy… Una Foden? Operation Transformation? Valentines Days give away?

    Great! It’s Vague again. An RTÉ host being interviewed by another RTE host. Good ol’ RTE. Ground breaking idea and no expense spared.

    RTE is overdoing product placements in their programming. The LLS is one of the worst. Most of the guests are selling a book or film, RTÉ are promoting a series, phone competition, and its sponsored.

    I scan over these pieces and see them as public warning service, but I do miss when Bodger finished the piece with increasingly inventive ways to avoid this tripe, gems such as

    *begins personal RTÉ famine*

    *books flight to London*

    *Uses money set aside for licence fee on gambling spree*

    “actor Kenneth Branagh will join us to discuss his new movie All Is True, and why Ireland holds a special place in his heart…”

    I’m going to go out on a limb here and suggest its because he’s Irish.
