Adam King said he was excited to go home to his parents and play with all his new toys, following his participation in last night’s Late Late Toy Show.

Six-year-old Adam stole the public’s heart from the moment he spoke, as he presented a sign to host Ryan Tubridy and said: “This is a virtual hug for you - I have it because of the coronavirus.”

Adam went on to discuss his love for space, and he one day wishes to command a space mission for Nasa. He added that he’d love to be an astronaut but can’t due to his “brittle bones”.

The Cork boy spends a lot of his time going in and out of Temple Street Children's Hospital - and it’s there that he made friends with a porter, John Doyle.

Doyle surprised Adam last night with a special visit on the show in a truly heart-warming moment. Speaking today, Adam said: “I really liked meeting John Doyle and giving him a virtual hug, and I liked seeing him at the Toy Show.”

“John Doyle just came up in a magic giant peach - and everyone loves him in Temple Street hospital in Dublin.”
