Brendan O’Connor’ Saturday Night Show returns tonight at 9.55pm on RTE One with a new look, only in so far as the guests that is. Tonight guests such as Amanda Brunker, Nuala Carey, Norah Casey and Daniella Moyles will come on the show with no make-up to raise money for the Irish Cancer Society.
The act follows the #NoMakeupSelfies trend and will aim to encourage women to support each other, and create an atmosphere of comfort within one’s one skin. The episode is sure to attract a certain amount of negative and positive attention just as the online trend has, with some praising it as an act of solidarity and others viewing it as vein.
Also on the show, Nell McCafferty will talk about her feminist beliefs, political experiences and turning 70. TV presenter Eoin McDermott will open up about his past self-harming in the same episode.
