DailyEdge.ie rounds up the TV shows that you’ll be tweeting about tonight and talking about tomorrow.

The Late Late Toy Show (RTÉ One, 9.35pm)

This one doesn’t really need any introduction at all, but it’s Ryan Tubridy’s 10th year at the helm of The Late Late Toy Show – the nation’s favourite annual TV special which is essentially like having the Argos catalogue read aloud to you by children for two and a half hours. Tubs promises that this will be his “best yet”, with 200 performers and 30 toy testers demonstrating their expertise throughout the show. This year’s theme will be The Greatest Showman, following the example set by the film of the same name. As the show primarily features young children on live TV, we can expect the usual non-stop entertainment, laughs and the odd bit of chaos. 

The Graham Norton Show (BBC One, 11.05pm)

It’s the one night of the year when you’re guaranteed that The Graham Norton Show will have to take a backseat, but if you’ve got any kind of aversion to The Toy Show, then Graham has your back. Tonight’s guests are Steve Carrell, Dawn French, Michael B Jordan, Ruth Wilson and Cheryl Cole who’ll be performing her controversial new hit Love Made Me Do It, which landed her in some hot water after her last performance of it on The X Factor. 

The Late Late Toy Show Unwrapped (RTÉ One, 7pm)

If you can’t get enough of The Toy Show (or you’ve got to get the kids to bed before it begins) RTÉ has a little preview of what’s in store, and a look back at RTÉ’s Archives to see some of the best Toy Show moments of all time. The show also catches up with some of our favourite faces from back in the day, to find out what it was like to be part of the show. 


Everybody’s talking about… Rylan Clark teasing a new series of Big Brother.

It’s barely been cancelled a wet day, for Christ’s sake, but Rylan Clark’s been posting cryptic late night tweets which have been igniting suspicion. In the past, Rylan has said, “My brain just doesn’t understand that it’s not coming back. To me, I can’t understand that I have presented it for the last time.”
