Lindsey Russell from Blue Peter will be filling in for Harpz this weekend, it seems.

Yep, CBBC on Instagram said that iirc, it was Harpz's birthday yesterday, so she's probably gonna celebrate and take it off.

Of course Jamie and Zoe never ever ever drank on a Friday night before Live and Kicking.
Be nicer and more tolerant to each other. Them's the rules.

What are our thoughts on these BBC News graphics?

2 points for using Reith, minus 1 for using a ticker instead of a flipper.
It looks like someone's bleached the Minions.

Not bad for a spoof, realistic-ish without being too real.

I'm getting a bit fed up of dramas especially going for the real route - used to be quite interesting seeing a range of spoof graphics when required. Indeed they used to be quite precious about using something similar to the real look in case it caused confusion - CBBC could surely have had much more fun with this. I assume though that if CBBC are being "real" the graphic is still on the channel now several hours later.

I’ve never really understood the ‘must use fake looking graphics incase it caused courses confusion’ argument. In reality the average viewer isn’t going to think “can’t be real, they’re using a slightly different font and the clock is in the left hand corner”. In reality it’s the context that tells the viewer it’s not real whether it be people watching it on a TV screen or whether they have a fake news reporter and ridiculous headline as shown above, that tell the viewer that it’s not real!
Critique, Josh and dosxuk gave kudos

Lindsey did pretty well, she's probably not used to 2 and a half hours of live TV rather than a half hour but she did good. I think Harpz and Joe work better together. Smile

It's not the "average" viewer they're worried about.

Sadly it turns out she was doing far from that, she got hit with Covid
