ULSTER telly chat show king, Gerry Kelly will be 'seeing stars' on his final show - including chart-topping pop idols, The Corrs and Westlife, Sunday Life can exclusively reveal.

For Kelly's eyes - and the eyes of telly viewers - will focus on a formidable who's who line up of the biggest names in the world of entertainment this Friday.

Genial Gerry is bowing out with the last ever edition of Kelly this week - ending a 17-year reign as Northern Ireland's most consistently popular entertainment show.

And a galaxy of stars are set to pay tribute, in words and song, to the big man, in an extended two hour finale.

A UTV spokeswoman confirmed that among the guests will be The Corrs, Westlife, Ronan Keating, Eamonn Holmes and former hostage Brian Keenan.

She added: "There will be even more names added, as we are still finalising the line-up for the last few guests . It is a two-hour live spectacular for the last show as so many people wanted to be on the last Kelly."

Sunday Life understands among those also set to appear on the Kelly show swan song are the Ulster singers whose talent shone at George Best's funeral - Brian Kennedy and Peter Corry.

Stunning singing sisters and brother act, The Corrs will also serenade Gerry and viewers with a distinctly local traditional favourite, My Lagan Love, from the band's current album, Home.

Singing the praises of Gerry, Sharon Corr told Sunday Life last night: "Gerry, from the start was so supportive and good to us and we are thrilled to be able to perform on this last show this week."
