Tens of thousands of families across the country, young and old, are going to be gathering together on Friday as the festive special begins.

But it's not going to be viewers in Ireland tuning in tonight, as the folks behind the Christmas extravaganza have made sure that nobody is going to have Toy Show-related FOMO.

Yes, that's right - you can watch it online no matter where you are in the world.

"Living abroad? The @RTEplayer brings a little bit of Christmas magic to you as you can watch the #LateLateToyShow live this Friday night from anywhere in the world," RTÉ wrote on Twitter on Wednesday evening.

The Late Late Toy Show kicks off at 9.35pm.

It comes as the trailer for this year's holiday bonanza was released last week.

Thetrailer features marshmallows, Christmas jumpers and popcorn angels as well as one little boy and his family preparing to settle in to watch the show.

There's also a special appearance from Gabriel, The Late Late Show owl, named after the late Gay Byrne.

The theme of the show has not yet been revealed and is a closely guarded secret.
