The theme of this year’s show is still strictly under wraps.

Previous Toy Show themes have included The Wonderful World of Roald Dahl, Frozen, The Jungle Book and most recently The Wizard of Oz.

The 52-year-old Down native recently revealed to RTÉ Entertainment how he is prepping for this week’s show:

“The amount of Lego that I have built, the amount of Lego that I have stood on, the amount of toys that I have fixed, the amount of toys that I have built over the years… I would say that’s the prep.”

“The prep is real life.”

Patrick also revealed he’s been spending “a lot” of time in the costume department, as well as “stretching” ahead of his Toy Show hosting debut.

The Toy Show airs on Friday, November 24 on RTÉ One at 9:35pm.
