WE’RE JUST THREE sleeps away from the Late Late Toy Show kicking off in all its festive glory.

Sure, there is a rake of stuff to look forward to come Friday night – but the real Christmas spirit will lie in Tubs’ choice of Christmas jumper.

1. Like this multicoloured marvel from Gay back in the day
