A favourite of grown-ups and children all around the world.
We have been waiting for a while now to find out what the theme of the 2020 Late Late Toy Show would be, knowing that Tubs and RTE were going to have to do something really special for viewers this year, and from the looks of it, they have not disappointed.
Before we go too much further, if you are sitting in and watching the Toy Show this Friday, then the Lovin Dublin Date Box is the perfect curated two-course meal with drinks of your choice for the ultimate restaurant experience at home, available now on StuffUneed.ie.
Now, as for the theme, they've gone with... (drum roll please)... the wonderful world of Roald Dahl.

Yep, the author of Matilda, The Witches, The Fantastic Mr. Fox, Charlie & The Chocolate Factory, The BFG, James & The Giant Peach, and loads more will the source of the inspiration for this year's special episode.
Speaking to RTE, Tubridy said: "We had a different theme picked and then March happened. We had a different plan ready to go and then 'Lockdown 2' happened. We met speed bump after speed bump after speed bump, and we keep climbing over them to get to Friday night. So this show is about determination and resilience and this show reflects, in those words, what Irish people have been about all year."
The Late Late Toy Show kicks off on RTE One this Friday, November 27, at 9.35pm.
