Meanwhile. auditions took place last month across the country to find young performers for this year Late Late Toy Show. This is the first time the show has gone on the road and host Ryan Tubridy reckons this year's spectacular is going to be bigger than ever before as a result.

Tubridy said: "The talent has been exceptional this year. The Toy Show elves are very happy with what they have seen. In fact, they felt that even after Day One in Cork they could have filled a show. That gives you an idea of how good it is. We have buckets of talent. This is going to be big, big, big.”
