    We're 2 years on from the rollercoaster that was Normal People, and tonight on RTÉ another Sally Rooney adaptation, Conversations With Friends, comes to the small screen.

    While a pair of O'Neill's shorts may not steal the show this time around, Lenny did say that there's a lot more of Dublin to look forward to in Conversations With Friends.
    The show stars Taylor Swift's boyfriend Joe Alwyn, and Ian didn't miss an opportunity to ask Lenny whether Taylor had seen the series.
    Lenny also joked that another Liveline discussion may be on the cards after one episode in particular.
