RTÉ have announced that Ryan Tubridy is to step down from The Late Late Show at the end of the season.

Tubridy will present his final Late Late Show at 9.35pm on Friday 26th May on RTÉ One. He first began hosting the late night talk show in 2009.

“It has been a privilege to host the national institution that is the Late Late Show for the last 14 years.” Tubridy said in a statement.

“I want to thank the tremendous teams of producers, researchers, crew and executives who have done the hard work to keep the show on the road over the years. Many have become dear friends. Also, to the viewers, I am so grateful for the loyalty you have shown to the Late Late Show, week in, week out.”

“I will especially miss the annual chaos of The Toy Show and while millions of viewers got to see the thousands of children who made it onto the live show, I saw lots more hopeful singers, messers, dancers and musicians at auditions throughout the country. Suffice to say, I am incredibly positive about and hopeful for the next generation and the contribution they will make to this country.”

Tubridy will continue to present his radio show on weekday mornings on RTÉ Radio 1.

RTÉ's Director of Content, Jim Jennings thanked Tubridy for his fourteen years on the show saying: “Having worked closely with Ryan over the years, I know, first hand, his passion for The Late Late Show. I look forward to continuing our work with Ryan on his radio show and discussing future projects with him."

RTÉ Director-General, Dee Forbes added: "I would like to thank Ryan and acknowledge his enormous commitment to the Late Late Show during the seven years I have had the privilege to work with him. He had big shoes to fill, but he has made the show his own over the past fourteen years. The transformation of the Late Late Toy Show into a national event celebrating Irish children and the most popular television programme in Ireland every year is testament to his talents as a broadcaster and his ability to create a unique connection with children and audiences all over Ireland, and beyond.”

RTÉ has not yet made any decision regarding the next presenter of the Late Late Show. An announcement will be made later in the summer.
