In a very special Late Late Toy Show reunion, some of the show’s favourite kids from over the years bid Ryan a fond farewell behind the biggest moments from the nation’s favourite night of the year.
He has dressed up as everything from a lobster to a candlestick and is ready to don the Christmas jumper yet again.
As well as a catch-up with now ‘not-so-little’ stars, viewers will also be treated to a Toy Show performance which has been kept entirely under wraps from Ryan.
Plus, there will be more familiar faces dropping in and much, much more surprises in store for Ryan.
