Bruised, battered – and that’s just their egos – our four plucky TV execs faced some of the toughest challenges of their careers as they desperately battled to prove they have what it takes to become a Blue Peter presenter.
With rounds including ‘Whose Poo?’ (do you know your elephant dung from your tiger turd?) and tackling Britain’s muddiest assault course, the BBC’s Kate Phillips, Kudos’ Diederick Santer, Channel 4’s Sarah Lazenby and Sky’s Phil Edgar-Jones, had a weekend they will never forget – and made TV gold.
See below for a sneak peek of this first round, hosted by seasoned pro and current Blue Peter presenter (and former Talent Schemes alumnus!) Radzi Chinyanganya.
And join us in Edinburgh as our fantastic line-up of judges – Valerie Singleton, Peter Purves, and CBBC boss Cheryl Taylor – view part one and assess some tricky tasks live onstage to decide the winner – all presided over by our hilarious host, fresh from Love Island, Iain Stirling.
The action kicks off at 11.45 Wednesday 23 August. Don’t miss it!
