While it’s not yet Halloween, we can’t help but think forward to this year’s Late Late Toy Show. Before we know it, it’ll be time for everyone to grab their spot on the couch just in time for the annual show.
Now, host Ryan Tubridy has revealed a small clue about this year’s show. Speaking on his RTÉ Radio 1 show this morning, he shared that his schedule is swamped as “this is the Toy Show time”.
Continuing, he told listeners: “I had to go and get fitted up for a new nose, Toy Show wise… And that’s before I go and see Stuart and talk about songs, two songs and to talk about dances; two dances…
“And to talk about getting involved in some very special things that we’re doing all around the show that involves filming a little bit here and a little bit there. It’s very special,” he revealed.
“What we are doing with the Toy Show this year… last year there was a darkness in the air and yet you still had to make the colour shine through, this year the darkness isn’t as pronounced.
“So if you’re wondering where it’s going to go, I think it is post-war fun and games and kind of crazy. So you can expect something pretty, pretty crazy.”
Recently, Ryan chatted to VIP about the run-up to the Late Late Toy Show. Although Ryan stayed tight-lipped about the theme of the show this year, he did reveal that the team are already hard at work behind the scenes; “The planning for the Toy Show begins at about 12.05 on the night of the Toy Show.”
The show raised an extraordinary amount of money for charity in 2020, six and a half million euro in just an hour and a half; “Something very beautiful happened that night, and that story will continue through the charities around the country. And we have to try and make something special this time around, again, so the pressures on.”
