Following his time in the I'm A Celebrity... jungle, Kian will be chatting about the launch of his solo career, his debut single Home and his first studio album which will be released this St Patrick's Day.

Kian will also be revealing the pressures of going solo and what life is like now after being a member of one of the world's biggest boy bands, Westlife.

Also on the programme is County Antrim native-turned Hollywood star James Nesbitt to discuss his involvement in the Patsy Duffy Memorial Benefit 'Forget Me Not', which is taking place on Friday night with the aim of raising £50,000 for Alzheimer's awareness in Northern Ireland.

James will be attending the benefit alongside Sarah to support the fundraising event. Both James and Sarah have been affected by the disease with James' mother May losing her battle with Alzheimer's in 2011, while Sarah's father Ian passed away in October 2013.

The gala evening has been organised by the Duffy family in memory of their beloved husband and father Patsy Duffy who passed away in 2012 at the age of 57 to early onset dementia.

The Duffys will also be joining Sarah in the studio to discuss the importance of raising awareness of this often misunderstood disease.

Meanwhile The Magazine has been catching up with former X Factor hopefuls Union J following their most recent visit to Belfast.

Speaking about their Belfast fans, bandmember Josh Cuthbert said: "They're crazy, they're extra crazy and that's what we love about them.

"A lot of fans can be shy and timid but the Belfast fans are loud, they're crazy, they pull you, they jump on you.

"It's awesome and we love it."

The Magazine airs on UTV on Friday from 8pm.
