An RTE spokesperson said: "This summer the Irish women’s soccer team will take their place among the nations of the world at this year’s world cup. Their first game will see them face the hosts Australia in front of 83,500 fans in Sydney.

"It's all because of a moment of magic from Amber Barrett when she put the ball in the Scottish net last October. Amber will explain why that goal and her community in Donegal will be forever intertwined and how she feels ahead of the national team's historic debut at the World Cup this summer.

"The Great British Bake-Off judge Prue Leith will talk about her incredibly successful career as a restaurateur, novelist, businesswoman and TV star. She’ll also discuss her recent documentary which explored the subject of assisted dying and what it’s like to go on tour with a new live stage show about her life. "

On the launch of the new Big Repair Challenge, the spokesperson continued: "We will launch The Late Late Show Big Repair Challenge on this Friday's show.

"So whether, you have something of sentimental value that is falling apart but you just can't throw in the skip? Whether it's your tattered mother's wedding dress, your first teddy bear that you want to pass on to your own children or the banjaxed transistor radio in the shed, everything is welcome in our repair shop. If you have a passion project and think you can turn your junk into treasure, we want to hear from you.

"We will have experts on hand to give you a few pointers so all you need is an object that is in dire need of repair and a bit of elbow grease! Selected passion projects for The Late Late Show Big Repair Challenge special will be showcased in all their glory before the end of the season.

"Applicants are asked to get in touch via email".
