CBBC is bringing back live kids telly to Saturday mornings

A new “live entertainment extravaganza” will begin airing every Saturday morning on CBBC this autumn.

The series will continue in the tradition of classic Saturday morning programmes like Going Live!, Saturday Superstore and Multi-Coloured Swap Shop.

Set to be titled Live & Dangerous, the show will be broadcast live from MediaCityUK and “packed full of celebrity guests, games, sketches, gunge and some of CBBC’s favourite shows.”

Cheryl Taylor, CBBC Controller, commented: “The presentation team are the beating heart of CBBC and their expanded role on Saturday mornings to deliver a live extravaganza will cause great excitement for our audience. We have been using new technology to connect with the 6-12s for some time now and I’m proud to be in a position to offer unique live participation opportunities which will make CBBC an even more special destination on Saturdays.”

Viewers in the studio and at home will also get the chance to interact all morning; quizzing pop stars and playing games on the CBBC digital platforms.

12 two-hour instalments of Live & Dangerous will air on Saturday mornings from September 2017 on CBBC.
