The theme and set of this year's Toy Show have been revealed

It's so close now...

The Greatest Showman has been revealed as the theme for this year's Toy Show, which is rather good timing because Hugh Jackman has just announced a show here next summer.

Huge production will go into the show with a large cast of more than 200 young performers and over 30 toy testers telling us all about the must-have gifts for this year.

As always, Ryan and the Late Late Toy Show elves have a few surprises up their sleeves and all will be revealed as the show goes on.

Speaking about this year's theme, Late Late Toy Show host Ryan Tubridy said: "Having The Greatest Showman as our theme this year is helping to emphasise the essence of what I believe the Toy Show should be – inclusive.

"This year we are celebrating the kid who doesn’t get Snapchatted, or who doesn’t always have someone to sit beside on the bus.

"These kids aren’t lonely or unhappy, they just find joy in their own way. This year’s show will be wrapped up in kindness and warmth and humour, so, as the song goes, see you on The Other Side!"
