Ryan Tubridy with the 'Godfather' of the Toy Show, the late, great Gay Byrne.

Just one more sleep to the Toy Show!!

We are now just one more sleep away from The Late Late Toy Show and host Ryan Tubridy has hinted that it might be more 'Christmassy' this year compared to other years.

"Sometimes the Toy Show can get lost in the theme, and forget that it's Christmas, so we've been bringing it all back home a little bit more this year," said Ryan Tubridy, who was speaking to the Irish Examiner this week.

The theme, he said, "Is a closely guarded secret, but what I will say is that during the summer, we generally like to try and take a sense of where the country is at, or where it might be at come November or December, and this year we felt that people might be in a little bit of bother with bills and expenses and expectations in that regard," continued Ryan.

"So that has influenced where we are going with the show and the theme, and a lot of the show this year is going to be about home and it's going to be about Christmas proper...

"We're going to bring it all back home, bring it back to basics and endeavour to Christmas it up again," the RTÉ host explained.

"I think we lost a bit of Christmas over the years on the show. I want to see a Christmas tree and I want to see snow... So that's where we're going, more nostalgia, more home," Tubridy concluded.
