'TV3 is basically the teaser for the Late Late Toy Show' - Lucy Kennedy

She's fronting TV3's new Toy Show Teaser and Lucy Kennedy has insisted there's no competition between Ballymount and The Late Late Toy Show.
The station has gone up against RTE previously with their own Toy Show, hosted by Brian McFadden in the first year and Maria Walsh and Brian Ormond in 2015.
However, the Dublin woman says this year they are serving up a taster for the main event on RTE later on the same evening.
Both shows will air on Friday, December 2 but the TV3 broadcast will go out at an earlier time of 8pm, ahead of the Late Late.
"There is no competition. This is a totally different show. We're not going up against the Late Late, this is our show," she told the Herald.
The Seven O'Clock Show star will be hosting alongside Dustin The Turkey. "I watched the last two and I thought they were great but this is a Toy Show teaser, it's not a Toy Show," she said.
"It's only going to be half an hour. It's basically the teaser for the Late Late Toy Show. This for younger children who can't stay up until half-nine. Myself and Dustin are going to show them as many Toys as we possibly can."
TV3's Toy Show Teaser will follow a countdown show at 6pm, Seven's Countdown to Christmas with Martin King & Muireann O'Connell.
