THE ongoing controversy surrounding the Bobby Storey funeral and her relationship with Arlene Foster are among the topics that Michelle O'Neill is set to discuss on the The Late Late Show tonight.

It will be the deputy first minister's first appearance on the RTÉ chat show, hosted by Ryan Turbidy.

The Sinn Féin politician is also expected to talk about hopes for post-Brexit Ireland and on a personal note will tell how becoming a mother aged 16 changed her life.

Also among the line-up of guests Cork dual GAA player Jamie Wall, who in 2014 was diagnosed with an epidural abscess on the spine which left him paralysed from the midriff down, will also be interviewed by Turbidy.

He will speak about the day that his life changed and how he has adjusted to paralysis and went on to manage his home club to victory.

Meanwhile singing star Tom Jones will give an exclusive performance of his take on a Bob Dylan classic, One More Cup of Coffee from his new album Surrounded by Time while the Villagers will give an exclusive performance of their brand-new single, The First Day.

The Late Late Show is on RTÉ One at 9.35pm.
