CBBC Talent Search

Whither Maddy? (May 2004)

Remember CBBC had a search for a new presenter in, oh... let's say 2002? And a girl called Maddy won it. Whatever happened to her? She turned up in a promo for something like Sport Relief (or was it The Junior Great North Run?) but otherwise was never seen again. Did she walk out or what?

Sorry don't know the answer to that one Jenny but it's the same what happened to that newsreader aswell?

Her contract on CBBC only lasted a year so she left around last October! Also the talent search programme was called 'Making it'.

Pretty strange considering that she was hired from a pretty well hyped show on the CBBC Channel and CBBC One, only to never get a chance on BBC One itself.

You are correct, her contract on the CBBC Channel wasn't renewed...

She was also mostly stuck on the CBBC Channel at weekends, so guess they did not think much of her presenting after a bit.

And whatever happened to that computer-generated presenter avatar called Maddy? Incidentally, that's what I thought this thread was about!

Are you American? (Spelling of "capitol").

Anyway, Becky Jago certainly wasn't in the same situation. She chose to leave Newsround for Capital...
