In a moment that's sure to go down in Toy Show history, eight-year-old Tom Cullen from Leitrim brimmed with love and enthusiasm as he talked about his granny, Nanny Pat.

Tom told Ryan how much he loves visiting her house, how they enjoy spending time knitting together, and how his favourite meal is her special bacon and cabbage.

He loves her so much he even had a special jigsaw made out of a photograph of her.

Viewers's hearts melted when Ryan asked Tom if she gives good hugs, and he said "Yeah."

"Why don't you give her a hug now," Ryan continued, as Nanny Pat walked out onto the stage, bringing a huge smile onto Tom's face.

For those watching at home, it was nearly too much to cope with and within minutes of her surprise appearance Nanny Pat was one of the top trending topics on Twitter. Figures!
