Presenter pal reveals his anguish over Gerry Ryan footage
In a special edition of ‘Ryan Confidential', first aired in 1998 and to be repeated tonight, the tables are turned on the show's host, who finds himself quizzed by Mr Tubridy.
As well as featuring material left out of the original programme, it will also show Mr Tubridy reviewing the archived footage, a process he admits he found very upsetting. “Revisiting my interview with Gerry was exceptionally difficult. I remember that day with vivid clarity and it's upsetting to think we'll never sit and joke and chat together again,” Mr Tubridy said last night.
The Late Late Show host said he viewed the episode of Ryan Confidential as “a love letter to those who loved Gerry Ryan, his family and many others”.
