Since 1975, this showcase of the year’s most popular Christmas toys has captured the Irish imagination. In 2017, it averaged 1.2million viewers, which made it the most watched show of 2017.

It is set to start at 9:35pm on RTE One and is due to run to approximately 12:00am.

Alike other years we are in for a seemingly exciting couple of hours with the hope that we will encounter another unique character who will steal the show and make a legend of themselves.

From John Joe Brennan in ’09 to Fionn the rapping Farmer in ’15, I’m sure we’re in for an exciting one.
