It was as part of a scheme run by the BAFTA Kids Roadshow 2019 in partnership with children’s mental health charity Place2Be, and aimed to boost youngsters’ confidence and creativity.

The Roadshow also gave a Behind the Scenes school assembly, and interviews with the hosts and guest speakers. Blue Peter’s Lindsey Russell said: “I’ve loved being a part of the BAFTA Kids Roadshow this year as it shows just how engaged and full of potential young people are.
