The Toy Show theme has been revealed and it's no surprise really

Take cover parents because RTÉ has revealed that Frozen will be the theme of tonight's Late Late Toy Show.

The 2019 edition of the annual extravaganza gets underway at 9.35pm and host Ryan Tubridy says that it will feature the "most outrageous opening number yet." That's saying a lot considering some of his previous performances...

The popularity of Frozen has soared again in recent weeks with the release of Frozen 2 so it's only right that this year's Toy Show will be based around the hugely popular Disney franchise.

As always, the programme will feature some of the best young talent in the country with over 200 singers, performers and toy demonstrators on hand to keep the rest of us mere mortals entertained in our living rooms. Ryan has also confirmed that there will be a special nod to original Toy Show host Gay Byrne, who passed away earlier this month.

There will be a particular focus on family this year, with Ryan saying "A lot of the emphasis this year is on family and coming together and gathering to watch the show, as they have done for decades. It's not a picture-perfect portrayal of family, because every family is different, and they come in all shapes and sizes."

The question is which celebrity guests will follow this lot from years gone by? We'll just have to tune in to find out.
