The Late Late Show (RTÉ One, 9.35pm)

Everybody’s talking about: Derry Girls

So Derry Girls has been renewed for a second season, which is highly deserved – but did you know that Nicola Coughlan, who plays teenager Clare in the series, is 31 years old?

Incredible. There must be a picture in an attic somewhere growing more grotesque with each passing year. It’s the only answer.
