They're massive shoes to fill Ryan!
Christmas starts for most people tonight, as all eyes will be on RTÉ One @9:35pm for The Late Late Toy Show 2019.
And with the movie 'Frozen' being this year's theme, we've no doubt an extravaganza awaits.
Ahead of hosting the biggest family show of the year (his 11th), Tubs took some time out of his Santa-like schedule to reveal all on Dermot and Dave's #AskMeAnything
When asked about how excited he is, his answer sums up how we're all feeling about it really;
there is no chart available to modern science that can explain what level of excitement going on in my head today. This is the day of days
Listeners had a selection of great questions for the host, one of which was from 'Aaron' who asked, "Have you ever robbed a toy from the set?", which brings Ryan to a "book-related" toy on tonight's show that he describes as his "toy of the year". "Just remember the red box" he urges.
There were lots more like: "When does planning for the Toy Show begin?", "What are the seat levels like under the jumper?" and "What is your favourite moment from the show?".
"If you got struck down with the flu today, who do you think would make a good stand-in host or hosts?" was also another gem. His response wasn't what we were expecting.
Ohh...and Ryan's 'Kermit the Frog' and 'Yoda' impressions are perfection. Talk about hidden talents!
