Snap! One photo could WIN you tickets to the Late Late Toy Show

The Late Late Toy Show is a little over a month away, and of course we're already planning a night in with Christmas jumpers and copious amounts of Cadbury Roses.

But one lucky sod could actually be part of the annual show's studio audience without having to apply, thanks to a new competition launched by RTÉ today.

For the first time, the Toy Show is going on the road, to check out the singing and dancing talent in cities across Ireland.

All you have to do to enter the new competition is to snap a picture of the Late Late Toy Show car as it travels the country, and post it on Twitter or Facebook.

The car is bright red, so it's hard to miss:

Simply tag your snap with #latelatetoyshow, and you could skip the queue of 200,000 applicants to win yourself two tickets to the big night at the end of November.

Ryan and his red wheels hit Cork today, with auditions to follow in Athlone on October 13, Sligo on October 14 and Dublin on October 19.

Thousands of audition tapes were submitted to RTÉ over the last few weeks, with hopefuls from all 32 counties attending the regional auditions this week.

Close to 1.25m people watched the Late Late Toy Show last year – that's a quarter of the population, btw – with 269 performers and toy testers taking part.
