There really is nothing like the celebrity appearance on the Toy Show. The anticipation from the crowd, the surprise from the lucky kids, it really is a magical moment.
That was exactly the case on the Toy Show last night as Cealan from East Wall got the surprise of his life.
The young Dubliner immediately mentioned he was a massive Liverpool fan and told Tubs that he wanted to be a professional footballer when he grows up. Failing that he wants to be a teacher to make a difference in the world. How adorable is that?
Caoimhín Kelleher surprises young Liverpool fan Cealan on Toy Show
As Ryan challenged Cealan to a few blindfolded penalties, which he absolutely tucked away with ease, he subbed himself off for a stronger pair of hands as Liverpool FA Cup hero Caoimhín Kelleher made an appearance.
The shock on Cealan's face as he found out who was in front of him was a genuinely magical moment. And the fact he went top bins without even looking on Liverpool's number 2 was just the icing on the cake.

Kelleher was a great sport throughout his appearance on the show and Cealan came out with some gas one-liners as the keeper gave him his gloves and a jersey signed by all the Liverpool players. It's fair to say he was absolutely buzzing.

But that wasn't it for the young man's night, Kelleher also invited him to Anfield to see the team play for the first time.
As this tweeter below points out, Cealan is going to have some story to tell around the dinner table for quite some time. What a kid.
