Late Late Toy Show star Adam King has wished the people of Ireland a happy new year in a sweet message.
The six-year-old aspiring astronaut won the hearts of the nation when he appeared on Late Late Toy Show with his “hug for you” sign, which eventually got stamped on every letter in Ireland for Christmas.
Signing off 2020 on his Instagram page, Adam shared a sweet video message, with his family writing:
“Thank you for taking Adam into your hearts – you are in ours too 😍.
“Little did we realise just over a month ago, after Adam’s appearance on the #LateLateToyShow , the impact he would have on so many people around Ireland- and the world!”
