'The Late Late Toy Show' marks the official start of Christmas for a lot of Irish people. But just because you're not in Ireland, doesn't mean you can't get in on the fun.

The show will be available to view worldwide via the RTÉ Player both live and on-demand. Last year's 'Toy Show' theme of Roald Dahl was streamed in over 100 countries outside of Ireland as the Irish abroad in Estonia, Kuwait, and Honduras tuned in.

This year's theme still remains a mystery, with only two more sleeps to go...

Needless to say, we'll all pretty excited. So, wherever you are in the world reading this, here are the times this year's 'Late Late Toy Show' kicks off across the globe:

All this week in anticipation of Friday night, 'The Late Late Show' social media accounts have been sharing some clips of Ryan Tubridy and children as they prepare for the latest edition of the show.

Ryan told his Radio 1 listeners: "It's very special. You see, what we are doing with the 'Toy Show' this year is, we get the sense... last year there was a sort of darkness in the air, and yet you had to make the colour shine through.

"This year, the darkness isn't as pronounced. If you're wondering where it's going to go, I think it is post-war fun and games and kind of crazy."

Just like last year, RTÉ Player and the RTÉ News channel will simultaneously broadcast live in Irish Sign Language (ISL). An audio description version will also be broadcast on RTÉ One on Tuesday, December 1, and will also be available on demand on RTÉ Player.

'The Late Late Toy Show' starts at 9.35pm Irish time on RTÉ One this Friday night.
