Early Christmas for two Donegal boys set to appear on the Late Late Toy Show

Two young boys from Donegal will see their dreams come true this evening as they appear on the Late Late Toy Show.

Charlie Doherty from Gortahork, who is just nine years old, will display his Irish dancing skills on the most popular tv programme of the year. 

He was chosen from thousands of acts that auditioned for a coveted chance to appear on the show which will be broadcast at 8pm tonight.

Alex Nicholas, a seven year old from Bundoran, will also appear on the show, talking about his favourite toys.

The imaginative young lad filmed a Snapchat video clip and, when people commented that he should send it in to Ryan Tubridy, his mother Ramona decided, "Why not?"

Very soon after, he got a call to audition and he's over the moon to be heading to Montrose today.
