Doesn't look like there is any secondary school programming on Thursday and Friday due to the snooker, unsure if this will be updated.

Strictly's 2020 professional dancers, plus Mark Wright, Joe Wicks, Mr Motivator, Kevin Sinfield, Adam Peaty, Tyrone Mings and more will take part in a series of BBC programmes to help the UK stay active during lockdown.

Celebrity fitness guru Joe Wicks starts the series at 7.50am on BBC One followed throughout the week by Mr Motivator [amongst others].

Morning Live returns to BBC One at 9.15am on 25 January, where presenters Gethin Jones and Kym Marsh will be joined each day by a Strictly Come Dancing professional who will bring a bit of sparkle to the nation’s fitness regimes.

TV and radio presenter Mark Wright will bring fitness to secondary kids as he leads a daily dose of energising fitness sessions on BBC Two, iPlayer and other platforms from 25 January on weekday mornings.

Worth pointing out that the BBC Two offering is only two hours worth at 1pm with it not being shown at all next Thursday and Friday because of the snooker. The BBC News simulcast still looks to be going ahead, even though they could easily move the programmes to that slot and avoid the cancellation.

I'm guessing they didn't want primary and secondary overlapping but agree sacrificing the news simul ast from 9-11 would be better.
Be nicer and more tolerant to each other. Them's the rules.

OK, the Beast is a maths teacher when he's not a Chaser, so Mark Labbett doing maths makes sense. And they have a chef doing food science and a footballer doing PE, those make sense. But English with a Spice Girl and gardening with two Emmerdale actors?

Why does it matter? I'm pretty sure the presenters aren't writing the scripts, let alone the national curriculum.

Apparently Geri Horner wrote a series of kids books.
Write that down in your copybook now.

To be honest the choice of presenters is relatively moot but have been chosen as they'll be well known. Probably won't be much different to the Bitesize series that went out overnight many years ago, and those were all voiced over/had interjections from people who probably didn't know much beyond the basics about what they were voicing. Its a bit like using a 10 year old actor in a movie set during WWII, he wouldn't know the first thing about what it was like in reality, as all the accounts and documentation about "real life" during that period are all second hand memories/stories, which tend to get embellished down the years but even then at the end of the day it's just a script in his head.

Of course back in the 80s and 90s we also had people presenting our "educational programmes" who knew what they were talking about, Art Attack wouldn't have been the success it was had Neil Buchanan not been able to draw for toffee, or if Johnny Ball didn't know the first thing about science...
