The very special Late Late episode will see host Ryan Tubridy speak to Hollywood star Sharon Stone who stared in Basic Instinct, Lovelace and Casino. Sharon Stone discusses her strong ties with Northern Ireland through her friendship with the late peace activist Betty Williams. She will also discuss her recent battle with her health.

With people around the country planning their own personal Darkness into Light walks, hikes, swims, and dances this weekend, Pieta clinical manager Leigh Kenny will be telling viewers why the suicide prevention charity's services are in demand now more than ever.
Pieta is proud to announce we are introducing free, national video counselling to those in suicidal distress. The new service ensures that we can more fully support those who may be facing COVID restrictions or who live in areas where our Centres have not yet reopened. pic.twitter.com/dkify5nuzr
