As ever, last night's edition of 'The Late Late Toy Show' proved to be a highlight on the TV calendar and the Twitter calendar.
For the guts of two hours, people turned off the cynicism (well, some did) and just enjoyed the sheer delight and spectacle of it all. As we previously reported, the theme of last night's show was 'The Greatest Showman', but the highlights of the night included Stella, Davy Fitz surprising young Michael and the breaking toys.
Here's the ten best tweets from across the night.

Michael from Kerry did not come to fuck around. Three piece suit. Dropping truth bombs and demanding autographs. Absolute legend. #LateLateToyShow

Every year I worry #LateLateToyShow won’t live up to the hype and then some kid gets Santa to open fire on the Brits in a Lego version of the 1916 Rising

Irish kids are the most confusing type of kids, they look so young and talk like they're 70 years old after a hard life #LateLateToyShow

How funny would it be if the surprise sporting guest on this year's toy show was Fernando? #LateLateToyShow
