The night has arrived! The Late Late Toy Show is set to hit our screens this evening and we’re so excited. It’s the one night of the year where the people of Ireland gather around their tv screens and take in all the magic that surrounds the much-loved programme.
Host of the Toy Show Ryan Tubridy appeared on FM104’s The Strawberry Alarm Clock with Jim-Jim and Nobby this morning to give specific instructions that should be followed to maximise the enjoyment of this year’s spectacular.
“It’s all dependent on age, if you’re under 10 you’re probably going to have to retire to bed early and watch the rest tomorrow. If you’re over 10, that depends on if your parents are cool and you can stay up for the whole thing. If your parents are strict and really annoying, you’ve got to go to bed early.
“But seriously, parents need to cop on a bit here. This is a big night, this is for the children, parents in some ways play second fiddle, it’s the kids rule the roost tonight – get them sugared up, skittled up, Coca-Colaed up, ice creamed up – this is the anti good health thing.
“There will be no gluten free – as long as there’s loads of gluten,” he said.
Now this is something we can definitely get on board with- pass the candy cane! You can catch The Late Late Toy Show tonight on RTE One at 9:35pm.
