Wanted – Blue Peter presenter

The BBC is launching a talent show to find a new presenter for Blue Peter.

CBBC’s Dick and Dom will host the search for someone to join the present team of Barney Harwood and Helen Skelton. Contenders will have to win their way through a series of challenges to reach the final, where the winners will be chosen by CBBC’s audience.

Anyone interested in being considered for the Blue Peter position, must email bppresentersearch@bbc.co.uk for details on how to apply.

“Working on Blue Peter is a dream job for any aspiring presenter,” said CBBC controller Cheryl Taylor. “Our search for a new face to join Helen and Barney will generate a huge level of excitement for CBBC viewers.With the irrepressible Dick and Dom on hand to orchestrate proceedings we anticipate high tension and high jinks.”

The series, which has a working title of So You Think You Can Be A Blue Peter Presenter, starts this summer. Further details.
