Builders have accidentally unearthed a Blue Peter time capsule from 1998 containing mementos picked by viewers.
The time capsule was buried 15ft underneath the Millennium Dome, now the O2 Arena, by hosts Richard Bacon and Katy Hill, and it wasn’t supposed to be dug up until 2050.
The contents of the capsule included a Blue Peter badge (of course), a Spice Girls CD, a Tellytubby, Tamagotchi toys and a photo of Princess Diana – literally the most 90s collection of items you could think of.
A source told The Sun: “Nobody realised it was the Blue Peter capsule. The boys thought they’d struck gold.
“They were going at it with anything they could find — hammers, shovels, the lot.
“At one point a bloke in a forklift squished it with the machine’s teeth.”
The capsule also contained stamps, coins, a World Cup football, a Roald Dahl book and an insulin pen.
Katy Hill, now a Heart Radio DJ, couldn’t believe it had been unearthed 33 years early.
