Picture of Gail Porter

Hosted children's show Fully Booked, but achieved fame when her nude image was beamed onto the House of Commons at night, as a publicity stunt, resulting in a 100ft image of her. Gail also hit the headlines again when she sadly lost her hair, but its great to see her on the Gadget Show now!

Picture of Andi Peters

Andi started out with Edd the Duck in The Broom Cupboard and went on to present Live & Kicking. Like so many in the media who want to become famous/taken seriously, they have to get their kit off. Andi did it after leaving children's tv behind, for the cover of Men's Heath magazine.

Vision On was one of the most innovative programmes ever seen on children's television and ran for over ten years. It was the first programme to successfully bridge the gap between children with hearing and those with limited hearing. With very little dialogue it sold well overseas too. It also saw the emergence of 'The Gallery' that was to continue in all of Hart's subsequent series, such as Take Hart and Hart Beat.

Picture of Peter Duncan

He joined Blue Peter in 1980, and shortly afterwards it was revealed in a tabloid newspaper that Duncan had appeared nude in the British film The Lifetaker (1975). Hello fame.

Unusually, Duncan did two stints with Blue Peter, being on the team from 1980 to 1984, and again from 1985 to 1986. During his stay with the programme, he became associated with the kind of daredevil stunts and these continued in his own spin-off series, Duncan Dares.

On 20 February 2007 Duncan was awarded the highest Blue Peter Award - The Gold Badge. This badge has been awarded in his role as Chief Scout of the UK
