Christmas is the perfect time for a miracle to happen but is a Toy Show ticket too big an ask? We caught up with the man himself, Ryan Tubridy to find out if big sister Lauren will have a seat in the audience.

Earlier in the week, Ryan responded to a letter from one of his youngest listeners. Seven-year-old Lauren had written a prayer to God asking that her new baby sister Holly would start taking her bottle so that the family would be home in time to watch The Late Late Toy Show.

The lovely Ryan decided to drop in to Holles street to hold baby Holly and see delighted parents Annie Kennedy and Alan Buckley, perhaps in an attempt to spark a Toy Show miracle! We caught up with the presenter to ask him about the experience and whether or not we might see young Lauren in the audience.

"They let me in to see all the little premature babies, now they were all fine, but they were just in a hurry and I got to meet the little baby and I put her in my hand and she was this tiny little bag of sugar with eyes."

When asked if we would be seeing more of Lauren in the future, Tubridy remained as tight-lipped as ever, only saying that Lauren had a lovely family and he hoped that we would one day have the pleasure of meeting them.

So, has Lauren a prayer of getting to the Toy Show? We'll have to tune into RTÉ One tonight at 9.35pm to find out!
