Tubridy has won praise in recent weeks for keeping Late Late Show viewers up to speed on the Covid-19 situation and last week he took part in a live demonstration of what taking a test for the virus entails.
Filling listeners in this morning, Callan said of Ryan is "getting it checked out and hopefully he will be back on the Late Late Show this Friday, hale and hearty and doing what they've been doing over the last few weeks which I think has been very helpful to a lot of us and very entertaining as well."
