Darcie in Dubai and Rían and Carágh in Perth shared special messages during a stunning performance of Take That's Rule The World by Gary Barlow and children around the world. RTÉ Player caught their relatives' reactions on camera! 

This year the Late Late Toy Show was streamed live on RTÉ Player in 110 countries around the world as families tuned in to watch what was a very special show, during a very difficult year.

Covid-19 has separated so many people from their loved ones, whether they live across this country or across the world. This made Ryan Tubridy and the Toy Show team more determined than ever to make the global Irish family part of this year's spectacular show.

The result was a very special performance of Take That's Rule the World with kids from around the world singing and sending messages home - even Gary Barlow joined in with the singing.

Darcie in Dubai sent a special message home to Granny Annie, Grandad Martin and Granny Rosie. The RTÉ Player team worked with her mam Jen, uncle John and aunt Claire to catch the emotional moment she appeared on the biggest show of the year. 

Rían and Carágh's mam Bronagh filmed a special message for their loved ones at home all the way from Perth in Australia. She put us in touch with her brother Shane and sister-in-law Claire to catch the special moment when they appeared on our screens. 

There wasn't a dry eye in the house!
