It’s the magical moment that officially kicks-off Christmas for thousands of kids each year – and this Friday night Mayobridge singing sensation Sophie Lennon will help open the Late Late Toy Show. 

The 12-year-old Sacred Heart student sat patiently each year with her family waiting for the Ryan Tubridy extravaganza now. 

Now all eyes will be on talented young singer when the curtain raises at 9.30pm on Friday – and Sophie can’t wait!

“I’m really looking forward to it so much,” an excited Sophie told the Reporter. 

“We watch it every year and I can’t wait. The thing I’m most looking forward to is singing live. I love the whole buzz of singing live. 

“It’s a special show because I have been watching it ever since I was really young and now I actually get to be in it! It’s a dream, come true. It’s really magical.” 

Sophie has been travelling to Dublin for the last four weeks for rehearsals. 

She was one a select few from over an incredible 60,000 applications to star on the show, which is watched by over million viewers each year.
