RTÉ HAS CONFIRMED that Miriam O’Callaghan will take the reins of the Late Late Show again tomorrow as Ryan Tubridy battles coronavirus. 

Tubridy was advised not to present last week’s show due to a persistent cough. He later tested positive for Covid-19. 

Speaking from home today, he said he wanted to thank everyone for their good wishes over the past number of days.

“I am very grateful to be through this virus, and, to keep safe I will be adhering to best practice and not be returning to work until next week. I am acutely aware that other people are going through much more serious pain and I want to send them my warmest wishes at this difficult time.

“Miriam did a great job last Friday, as I’m sure she will tomorrow night, and I want to thank her and the team for keeping the show on the road.” 

On tomorrow’s show, Miriam will speak to Michael Prendergast, a 28-year-old from Kerry who was hospitalised with Covid-19.

Sean Moynihan, CEO of ALONE, will be in studio to discuss the marked increase in calls to the service by concerned elderly members of the community.

Joe Wicks, the online fitness instructor, will be advising people on how to keep well and Laura Whitmore, presenter of Love Island, will also be on tomorrow night’s show, speaking from her home in London.

John Sheahan, musician with The Dubliners, will talk to Miriam about how he is managing and getting to grips with cocooning. Country music singer Philomena Begley will also be interviewed about how she is coping in County Tyrone.
