Here's what to watch on TV tonight: Friday

Here’s the telly that everyone will be talking about tomorrow.

The Late Late Show (RTÉ One, 9.35pm)

Tonight’s Late Late celebrates the career of one of Ireland’s most beloved singers – Mary Black. The Black Family – Mary, Frances, Shay, Michael and Martin – will reunite for a performance on stage. She will also be joined by son Danny O’Reilly, lead singer of The Coronas, and daughter Róisín O for a singsong too. Paul Burrell and Diarmuid Gavin round out the guestlist tonight.

The Graham Norton Show (BBC One, 10.35/11.05pm)

Graham is joined by Oscar-winning actress Nicole Kidman, who is currently starring in Civil War drama The Beguiled. Musician – and Nicole’s other half – Keith Urban also pops up on the sofa. Theatre and screen star Alan Cumming discusses his memoir You Gotta Get Bigger Dreams, while music is supplied courtesy of singer-songwriter Sheryl Crow.

The Last Leg (Channel 4, 10pm)

Adam Hills, Josh Widdicombe and Alex Brooker are back for a new series of their highly-acclaimed panel show. The General Election is on the cards in the UK, so you’d imagine the majority of their razor-sharp gags will be focused in that direction over the coming weeks.
