No matter how old you get or how far away you move, the Late Late Toy Show will forever have a place in your heart, right?

And if you're one of thousands who want in on the live action, it's time to bring your A-game as applications for the most sought after seats in Ireland are opening today!

As The Late Late Toy Show regional auditions kicked off at the Clayton Hotel in Cork this morning, host Ryan Tubridy launched the application process for tickets.

And if you think getting your hand on one will be a walk in the park, it's worth noting that 140,000 applications were processed for last year's extravaganza.

Commenting on the popularity of the Irish institution, Ryan said: “I cannot tell you how often I am asked about Toy Show tickets."

"It really is quite extraordinary how popular they are. I am asked about them everywhere I go and the worst part about it is that I have to disappoint which I hate to do! My best advice is to get those applications in good and early and keep your fingers crossed – this year it could be you.”

This week The Late Late Toy Show hits the road to audition performers throughout the country as they hope to make it into the cast of this year’s programme.

Over the course of three days, The Late Late Toy Show team will see hundreds of budding hopefuls, meeting the best of Ireland’s young singers, dancers, musicians and performers.

This year the regional auditions are hitting Cork, Galway and Mullingar with young performers from all over Ireland expected to take part. 

The auditions are invitation-only with auditionees drawn from thousands of applications received over the summer months.

During the tour, the Toy Show team will be looking for fun, talented performers to take part in some of the night’s big set pieces as well as toy demonstrators who have the potential to charm the nation while chatting to the biggest kid of them all, Ryan.

This year’s Late Late Toy Show airs on RTÉ One on Friday, December 1.

Oh and here's a quick word to the wise; applications for Toy Show tickets are processed separately to applications for tickets to the regular Late Late and each year the application process starts anew.

So, even if you have applied for Toy Show tickets before or are already in the running for seats at the main show, to be in with a chance to get tickets to this year’s Toy Show, you must apply separately here. Applications via social media or email will not be counted.

Tickets are issued in a random lottery and those lucky enough to secure a seat will be notified closer to broadcast.

May the odds be in your favour, ladies.

Oh, and one more thing while we have you! Don't forget that you can catch up on all your favourite shows for free for a month right here, so sign up now! 



Whether it's choir singing, Irish dancing or musicians with more talent in their tiny fingernails that any of us could ever muster, The Late Late Toy Show plays host to some of Ireland's most talented youngsters. 

If you have a blossoming Mariah Carey or David Blaine in your midst, it may be time to put them forward for theToy Show. 

Applications have been extended for another week, so this is the last chance to get them on the 2017 show.

'I am really looking forward to hitting the road again and taking the Toy Show to the kids who make it such essential viewing,' Late Late Toy Show host Ryan Tubridy said.

'We have unearthed some brilliant performers on our previous trips around Ireland but I'm absolutely positive that there are still some real gems to be discovered.'

Down through the years, The Late Late Toy Show has been defined by the wonderful young people who have been involved.

Who could forget rapping farmer Fionn, John Joe the horologist, and Domhnall meeting his idol Robbie Keane?

 Not to mention the moment that Ed Sheeran surprised 11-year-old Aimee Keogh, leaving her (and the audience) speechless?

All applicants need to do is download the application form at www.rte.ie/latelate, record a short video of themselves performing their talent, put that video on a DVD or USB key and send it in to The Late Late Toy Show Auditions, PO Box 170, RTÉ, Dublin 4. 

Then, chosen applicants will be asked to come in to audition before the final cut is made. 

May the odds be even in their favour. 


The show that we all love – and kinda hate at the same time – is coming back to Ireland. Hurrah!

Yes ladies, Come Dine With Me will be gracing our shores once more and this time they're looking for fruitful and exciting applicants.

The series will be filmed in March, from the 13 – 18 and it wants more people living in and around Dublin, having previously filmed in Limerick and Cork.

The popular series saw Roz Purcell, George McMahon and Brian Kennedy battle it out in 2012, so now it's your turn.

If you fancy taking part (because who doesn't?!), then send an email over to cdwm@shiver.tv with all of your details.

You never know, you could be the next person to win that coveted grand.
