RTÉ has confirmed this evening that Late Late Show host Ryan Tubridy has tested positive for Covid-19.

Tubridy missed last week's Late Late Show due to a 'persistent cough'. He has not presented his morning radio show since last Tuesday. Tonight RTE issued a statement saying Tubridy asked the broadcaster to reveal that he had tested positive and to say he is recovering well at home.

Tubridy said the following:

Like so many other people in Ireland, I tested positive but I was in the very fortunate position to have a very unintrusive experience, which I now have come to the end of. While I've been at home watching television and listening to the radio, I have been bowled over by the extraordinary work of our front line heroes and their families who continue to make Ireland a healthier and safer place. I look forward to being back to work really soon."

Oliver Callan will continue to present Tubridy's radio show on RTÉ 1. RTÉ said they will reveal who'll present this week's Late Late Show later this week.
