The Late Late Toy Show marks the official start of Christmas for a lot of Irish people. Everyone has their own viewing traditions, whether it's wearing new pyjamas or stuffing your face with the selection box you were went to be saving.

If you're overseas this holiday season you can still join in the fun as the show will be available to view worldwide via the RTÉ Player. Last year the show was watched in over 100 countries. You can access the player on desktop by visiting or by downloading the free app on your Apple or Android device.

The player also has clips from last year's show to watch while you're waiting for this year's to begin.

The Toy Show starts at 9.35pm Irish time on RTE One. We've done the sums for you, so you'll know when to tune in no matter where in the world you are. And yes, it's still acceptable to watch in your pyjamas even if it's the middle of the afternoon.
