Hopefuls vie for Blue Peter job

Ten hopefuls are in the running to be the next presenter of enduring children's show Blue Peter.

The wannabes range from 19 to 28 years old and include a primary school teacher, a dancer who attended the Brit School and a science fan with his own YouTube channel.

They have made it through from more than 20,000 people who applied to become the 36th host of the world's longest running children's TV show.

Over the coming weeks they will be put through their paces in a spin-off CBBC show Blue Peter - You Decide!, with judges including Myleene Klass and Eamonn Holmes.

Presenters Dick and Dom will host the show which will feature a number of heats with challenges to test their skills as budding TV stars, although it will be up to viewers to cast their votes on which they wish to choose from the final three.
