As the countdown for this Friday's Late Late Toy Show gets underway, we've raided our archives to bring you the day when Ryan Tubridy faced the Ultimate Christmas Quiz - in the form of a Mastermind-style interrogation.

It’s probably because he’s just a big kid himself but Mr Toybridy (geddit??!) has become Mr Christmas ever since he began hosting The Late Late Toy Show in 2009 but does Tubs know his Elf from his elbow? 

The Late Late Toy Show on RTÉ One this Friday

Well, RTÉ Entertainment put him in the hot seat - and under a spotlight - to quiz him about all things Christmas - the books, the movies and the music that everyone loves about this time of the year.

Have a look at how Ryan fared in our Ultimate Christmas Quiz. Cue the big black chair and the scary music...

Be sure to tune in to The Late Late Toy Show on RTÉ One this Friday and the RTÉ Player on Friday at 9.35pm.
