Ahead of next week's much-anticipated Late Late Toy Show Ryan Tubridy has revealed that he is preparing for a secret audition.

Speaking to RTÉ TEN, armed with a Rudolf jumper with a flashing nose (so bright) under his arm, Tubridy said: " I'm being auditioned in secret to see if I'm up to the task of being involved in the opening number of this year's Toy Show.

"The question is can I dance and the answer is...? See you next Friday!"
