An Post have announced millions of letters sent this Christmas will feature a very special postmark designed by Late Late Toy Show star Adam King.

Adam appeared on this year's Toy Show, bringing along his homemade 'virtual hug' to make up for social distancing measures.


The six-year-old spoke to host, Ryan Tubridy about his love of space and his ambition to one day working in Capcom, or ground control for NASA.

Adam's appearance on the Toy Show captured the hearts of viewers, with thousands tweeting the US space programme to see if the Cork-boy's dream could come true.
