The coveted Blue Peter badge was something we all wanted – partly because it was a nice thing to have but mostly so we could brag about it to our mates in school! Not sure if it’s considered cool to own one now but it certainly was back in the day! It wasn’t all about the badge though – we can’t forget the long line of presenters! Here’s what some of our favourites are doing now!
Yvette Fielding – THEN
This lady holds the record for the youngest Blue Peter presenter ever, getting the role just shy of her 19th birthday! As if that wasn’t impressive enough, she competed with some big names like Cilla Black and Kylie Minogue to win the SOS Award for the Most Popular Woman on Television! Yvette’s rollercoaster trip with Mark Curry was also voted ‘Favourite Blue Peter moment of all time’ – do you agree?
Since her Blue Peter days, you may have recognised Yvette briefly from Loose Women and I’m a Celeb! Her current role (which she’s been in since 2002) is on Most Haunted. It’s certainly a big change, from talking to children to talking to ghosts…some may argue kids are the scarier bunch!
