At this stage, everybody in Ireland knows that the most wonderful time of year doesn't really officially begin until 'The Late Late Toy Show' airs, and we also all know that tickets to it are rarer than gold dust covered flying pigs - BUT - there is a way you can get into one of those coveted audience seats.

Today 'The Late Late Toy Show' is launching a competition to find the country’s most festive baked treat.

Two tickets are up for grabs for whoever can create the best Toy Show inspired Christmas treat. You needn't worry about getting it to Ryan either, as you just take a picture of it and post on the RTÉ One Facebook page, on Instagram or on Twitter using the hashtag #ToyShowTreats

Ryan Tubridy said: "Is there anything better than the smell of festive baking? Maybe tickets to the Toy Show? I want you to dust off your rolling pin and create something inspired by the most fabulously festive night of the year – 'The Late Late Toy Show'. Send pictures to us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter, and if you have flour power, the whisk might just pay off and we could be seeing you on November 30th!”

The usual terms and conditions apply and audience members must be 18 or over to attend on the night.
