Celebrity architect Dermot Bannon is joining the Late Late Show line-up tonight to build even more anticipation for this week’s ‘Room to Improve’ special. 

Dermot will be telling Ryan Tubridy about his experience working with Donegal royalty Daniel and Majella O’Donnell – who he described as the ‘feistiest and most single-minded’ clients to date!

The brand new series of Room to Improve kicks off this Sunday at 9.30pm on RTE One. Dermot will start by tackling Daniel and Majella’s large four-bed detached home in Kincasslagh, with big dreams to add massive windows and ‘secret’ doors to the dwelling.

Dermot’s ‘Late Late’ interview is sure to give a glimpse of the true goings-on behind the cameras during the O’Donnells’ home revamp, as all three characters battled to get their own way.

If this newest sneak peek is anything to go by, Dermot and QS Lisa O’Brien had a lot to learn about Daniel and his illustrious career!


Other guests on the Late Late Show tonight include Sinn Féin President Mary Lou McDonald, IFTA Lifetime Achievement Award recipient Gabriel Byrne and Monaghan actress Caitriona Balfe.

If you’re planning some channel hopping tonight, the line-up on Graham Norton looks super too.
