For anyone who wonders how Blue Peter is made, today’s the day to tune in, as four competition winners get the chance to produce the show. Making sure everything runs smoothly is all up to them. Helen and Barney are also brave enough to let viewers come in to do their hair and make-up, and a lucky few even have the chance to have a go at presenting themselves.


Four competition winners get the chance to produce today's programme, and more children take over the studio by styling presenters Helen Skelton and Barney Harwood as well as operating the cameras and helping to present the show.
