Ryan Tubridy has reassured fans of the Late Late Toy Show that the biggest television night of the year is "100% happening" on RTÉ One on Friday, November 27.
The host calmed nerves on his RTÉ Radio 1 show after the mother of a "very worried" nine-year-old texted in for reassurance.
"You've got to tell her that this is 100% happening," he said.
"Me and all my friends, and not to mention a few elves, have been working pretty hard. And as soon as I finish the show today, I'll be going out to do more work on it. And I'll be doing it tomorrow, and I'll be doing it the next day, and I'll be doing it pretty much every day until the end of November.
"We know, now more than ever, that the kids of Ireland, who have been so good, deserve a night like no other. So we're putting more effort and more love into this thing than you can imagine. So, is that a 'yes'? That's a 'yes'."
"Now, if you're going to ask me for details about how it's all going to work - that's for another day," Tubridy added.
"But like I said before, if I'm standing there on my own doing a jigsaw, there will be a Toy Show this year. So fear not, and we look forward to it immensely."
