The biggest TV event of the year is almost upon us and we cannot contain ourselves!  

The Late Late Toy Show is coming to RTÉ One and on RTÉ Player, live and on-demand, this Friday from 9:35pm (Irish Time).  With viewers in over 100 countries around the world primed to watch the show, tell your friends and family abroad they need not miss out as The Late Late Toy Show will be available to watch worldwide for free, live and on-demand on RTÉ Player, across Desktop, iOS and Android apps

Ahead of The Late Late Toy Show host Ryan Tubridy said: “One of the many great things about The Late Late Toy Show is that it is still one of those rare TV events where practically the entire country sits down to collectively enjoy it.  

"Even better, Irish people – and their friends – around the world get to watch along at the same time. People watched in 103 countries around the world last year. For that couple of hours on a Friday night we are all connected by the madness that is this utterly unique show. We have something very special planned this year and I think it is going to make a lot of people smile, no matter where they are in the world."

In preparation for the main event, viewers at home and abroad can get in training with the essential The Late Late Toy Show collection on RTÉ Player featuring some of the most noteworthy moments throughout the years.
