TV3 and RTÉ enter Christmas jumper wars

Tubridy and Hughes are going head-to-head in a Toy Show battle.

SO WE ALREADY know that TV3 is taking on RTÉ’s Late Late Toy Show in a battle of festive telly.

But things are getting really really serious now…. a Christmas jumper war has erupted.

Alan Hughes, who’ll be presenting TV3′s festive offering on 29 November, has dared to show his face in Ryan Tubridy’s 2fm studio wearing a Christmas jumper.

Handbags. Christmas handbags.

Hughes told Tubridy on-air that he’s actually not going head-to-head with RTÉ on 29 November, because his pre-recorded show will only be broadcast for half an hour from 8pm, while the Late Late Toy Show doesn’t begin until 9.30pm.

Tubs wasn’t letting it lie though, pressing Hughes on what he’s planning on wearing.

With gritted teeth he asked:

What are you wearing on the night Alan?

The pair might be all smiles in their jumpers today, but it remains to be seen if the Christmas wool will be flying in two weeks time.

Meanwhile Tubridy has said that the Toy Show team will spend the next few days “pondering” the request of an 11-year-old boy who as asked to be allowed to co-host with Ryan on the night.

Tubridy also said that he has already been trialling “outfits” for the opening sequence of the show, and that an ad featuring him as a cartoon character will be debuting on TV next week.
