Ryan Tubridy said he was taken aback by inspiring Toy Show kids

This year’s Late Late Toy Show had the nation in tears. It was quite possibly one of the best Toy Shows of all time and it’s all because of the wonderful kids that melted our hearts on Friday night.

Tom and Nanny Pet, brave Sophia, inspiring Ella and the adorable Sophie had us crying into our cups of tea.

Speaking on his RTÉ Radio 1 show, he said, “The biggest thanks have to go to the children, who kind of knocked us out really."

“They just seemed to come out with this wisdom and knowledge, self-awareness and kindness that seemed to make a lot of people cry."

"I found myself, uncharacteristically, having to take very deep breaths every so often because honestly, if I was to let go I probably wouldn't have made it through part two or three,” he revealed.

“I was, like everyone else, just taken aback by them,” Ryan added.

A whopping 1.7 million people tuned into the Toy Show this year and Ryan is already gearing up for 2020’s show.

“Every bone in my body is groaning. But it was worth every second of it. It would take it out of you, that's the truth, in a good way. We'll do it all again next year - I have the theme in my head already!" he quipped.
