Helloooooo you lovely lot. You've taken the time & the trouble to press that Red Button & make your way here to CBBC Extra. Well done you!
Recently, the Big Big Cheese has given me a bunch of very special DVDs to watch...all of them containing episodes from brand new shows!
As a CBBC presenter, it's a big part of my job to know what cool new things are on the channel, so I watch as much telly as I can to learn all about our new programmes.
But this was extra special, as I was getting to watch BRAND NEW SHOWS that haven't even been on telly yet!
There's a wicked new show called COP SCHOOL, where a group of young wannabe-police officers are put through their paces by an ex-copper and taught how to deal with criminals and police work.
Imagine The Big Performance, but instead of Gareth Malone there's a muscley chap in a leather jacket, and instead of singing the kids have to handcuff dangrous blokes and read them their rights. Scary stuff!
But really very cool, and getting to see how much work goes in to law enforcement is mind-blowing. Support the officers-in-training soon!
Then there's DICK & DOM GO WILD, which sees the boys taking on the daunting task of diving face-first into the wonderful world of wildlife. And they are great at it.
And last but not lease is my mate Ed Petrie returning to CBBC with his brand new shows ALL OVER THE PLACE, Horse-face himself will travel around the country checking out the werid and the wonderful sights of the UK with some very familiar faces!
It doesn't start till next month, and I have to keep a bit quiet about it but I will say this - expect Johny Pitts dressed as a tiger running a race, Iain riding on a camel, Holly Walsh leaping around the Giant's Causeway, London being kidnapped by a giant cone-climbing gorilla & Ed returning to our screens in the glorious fashion bringing a head-load of new songs and sketches with him! it's amazing!
So for more gossip next week, keep checking back to CBBC Extra. We're just a red button away!
