RTÉ HAS CONFIRMED that people living abroad will be able to watch the Late Late Toy Show when it’s broadcast live on Friday night.

Ryan Tubridy will once again don a festive jumper for the Toy Show, and people all over the world will be able to tune in via an international version of the RTÉ Player.

An RTÉ spokesperson has also confirmed to that the Toy Show will not be subsequently geolocked on the Player, so emigrants and anyone abroad who wants to catch up at a later time will be able to do so.

Snippets of what will be going on during this year’s show have been filtering through; we already know that Tubridy is likely to be performing some kind of dance (possibly with a hula hoop) and that he’ll be joined at some stage by his 11-year-old co-host Fergal Smith.

Last year the Toy Show was the most watched TV event in Ireland, with almost one-and-a-half million tuning in. will be liveblogging the whole event right here on Friday night, so dust off that Christmas jumper, get some Pringles and Roses in, and get ready…
