‘Capture the JOY’: Yep, get ready for the new Toy Show documentary

The Late Late Toy Show is easily one of the most popular nights on the Irish TV calendar.

Both young and old alike tune in to see what trouble Tubbers will get into, but as well as that, the talent is a huge part of the show.

Kids from all over the country want to perform on it, and now for the first time ever, we're going to get a little sneak peek into what actually goes on behind-the-scenes.

RTÉ are filming a three-part documentary which will look into what goes on in the audition phase, much like the smaller 2015 documentary, The Late Late Toy Show Unwrapped.

Hillary Jones, the show's producer, said in a press release: “We really want to capture the joy and excitement of the performers taking part in The Late Late Toy Show.

“Last year, The Late Late Toy Show Unwrapped, gave viewers a small glimpse of the regional auditions as we looked back over the history of the show but this year we’re bringing them right into the heart of the process.

“For the children auditioning this is a once in a lifetime experience. We’re aiming to give viewers a real insight in how the biggest night on Irish television comes together by following some of the little stars auditioning to take part and going behind the scenes with the team who put the show together.”

The documentary will air a week before the Toy Show, November 25.
