Here's how you (or your child) can apply to be on the Late Late Toy Show this year

Imagine.

The Late Late Toy Show is due to take place, as it always is, at the end of November.

And while we've still got a bit of time left before we're settled down in front of the telly with a mug of Baileys coffee in hand, shouting at the five-year-old who can't seem to get his next-gen Mr Potato working, that doesn't mean that we can't get excited for what's to come.

Or apply to be a part of the magic via a performance, even.

Applications to perform at this year's Toy Show are now open - and even though getting to be a part of the most Christmassy event of the year is highly unlikely, you'll never know if you never try (Coldplay, 2009).

"It's that time of year again when we start preparing for the Toy Show and we are looking for boys and girls from all over the country to help make it the best one yet!" reads the online form.

"If you are an astounding singer, a mind blowing dancer, have a passion for reading, explaining or creating, this could be your year. If you are funny, engaging or entertaining we want to hear from you!

"If you would like to be part of our show at the end of November then here’s what you have to do.

"Fill out the application form below and upload a video of you doing what you do best be it singing, dancing, juggling, making magic or telling us about your favourite toy."

Applications close on September 27 so if you know a child who seems like they might be up for the task, you better get going.

There's no doubt going to be a lot of interest.
