If you’re staying up late tonight, Graham Norton’s last episode before Christmas will feature Emily Blunt discussing her role as the new Mary Poppins, as well as Lin-Manuel Miranda, Ben Whishaw and Emily Mortimer, who’ll also be discussing the new version of the musical. Graham also invited Boy George and Culture Club onto the show for a musical performance.

 The Late Late Show (RTÉ One, 9.35pm) 

The biggest name on tonight’s Late Late Show lineup is Colin Farrell, who’ll be talking about his work with skin condition charity DEBRA, which helps patients suffering with the debilitating condition called Epidermolysis Bullosa. Colin will be joined by EB sufferer Emma Fogarty to discuss their friendship and how it has blossomed thanks to his work with the charity. There’ll also be a segment featuring Derek O’Connor who lost his wife Maeve to bowel cancer in 2016, and he’ll be talking about dealing with grief in the festive period and how he’s helping his three children navigate the world after their mother’s passing. After that, Ryan will be joined by former RTÉ News anchor Bryan Dobson and comedian Brendan Grace who’ll be talking about their lengthy careers.
