FOR THE SECOND week in a row, there’ll be no audience in attendance as Ryan Tubridy hosts RTÉ’s flagship The Late Late Show tomorrow evening.

The presenter will hear from the frontline emergency staff who’ve been working tirelessly at the coalface of the public health crisis brought about by coronavirus from 9.35pm tomorrow.

And, as testing centres are rolled out around the country, The Late Late Show will feature a step-by-step demonstration of what is involved in being tested for Covid-19.

In studio, Minister for Finance Paschal Donohoe will answer questions submitted by viewers about the financial uncertainties caused by the coronavirus.

Chief medical officer Dr Tony Holohan will also provide the latest update on the development of the virus in Ireland.

Also on the bill are Munter rugby player Billy Holland and his wife Lanlih. From their home in Cork, they’ll introduce their newborn baby son Matthew to the world.
