Eamonn Holmes to sing on new kids' show

Share article:

Eamonn Holmes has agreed to sing for a new children's programme on CBeebies.

The "This Morning" host was approached by the broadcaster to voice a forthcoming kids" show called "Biggleton" but was left stunned when bosses also asked him if he'd mind showing off his vocal range throughout the 25 episodes.

Speaking to The Sun newspaper, Eamonn said: "I have been asked by the BBC to voice an animation programme, a children's animation programme for CBeebies called "Biggleton". It is like "Trumpton" or "Camberwick Green".

"I will be saying things like, "It was a cloudy day in Biggleton". I am totally surprised. I mean why come to me? And they want me to sing."

However, the 57-year-old presenter wasn't just handed the job as he was told to audition and tasked with singing a classic children's tune in front of producers.

Eamonn explained to the publication: "My audition was to sing "Nellie The Elephant" but I don't know the words. This is me all over. I don't know if it is fantastic but I would be lying to you if I did not say I was tickled."

But he clearly did a good job as CBeebies boss Kay Benbow is glad they've nabbed Eamonn for the show and added: "I am thrilled to welcome Eamonn to CBeebies. It's great to have his warmth and humour as the narrator on our new series, "Biggleton"."

While Eamonn is busy voicing the children's series, his wife Ruth Langsford is trying to impress the nation with her fancy footwork on "Strictly Come Dancing".

However, the former news reader isn't too pleased with Ruth's new job as he's worried her dedication to the show will have an impact on their home life.

He said recently: "She is working so hard. And she's striking a blow for all the women written off in their 50s. She's loving it, though I think "Strictly" will put a strain on us because she's not about and Jack [their 15-year-old son] and I miss her."
