A Lot Of Controversy Surrounding A Guest On Tonight's Late Late Show

She's back!

RTÉ has received more than 640 complaints over controversial columnist Katie Hopkins’s planned appearance on The Late Late Show tonight.

Earlier this week, Ms Hopkins, a Donald Trump supporter, revealed she had “booked her flight” for her appearance on the show.

The announcement sparked a social media campaign urging viewers to submit complaints to RTÉ.

Complainants cited Ms Hopkins’s views on refugees, minorities, and other issues as reasons why the broadcaster should not afford her a platform.

Hopkins' previous appearances on the Late Late angered some viewers and she was heckled on the show in September 2014 for her attitude towards audience member Andrea Smith.


Trump supporter and former Apprentice candidate Hopkins will explain why she thinks the former US Apprentice host's campaign resonated with voters while comedians Oliver Callan and Dara Ó Briain will give their wry takes on events in the US. 

Stop the lights! Elsewhere with the new series of Bridget & Eamon beginning on screens next Monday night, the premier showbiz couple will take Late Lateviewers back in time as they resurrect RTÉ quiz Quicksilver for one night only.


Staying with the 1980s (ish) - also appearing on the show will be broadcaster and hotelier Bibi Baskin who will explain why she wants to return to Ireland.

There's bound to be plenty of fun too as colourful campsite owner and entrepreneur David McGowan pops in discuss his plans to turn Enniscrone in Co Sligo into a major holiday destination.
