Alan and Ryan going head to head in battle of the jumpers

a WHO'LL win the battle of the jumpers?

TV3's Alan Hughes (inset) will go up against the Late Late's Ryan Tubridy (below) as their toy shows air on the same night later this month.

It's an interesting move on the part of TV3 and shows how competition is heating up in the Irish TV world. Pity the ratings loser? I don't.

But I do pity poor Santa – who'll have to deal with even longer lists of pressies!
