BBC's Reggie gets a challenge in the Isle of Man! 3 April 2006

    BBC's Reggie at GGH Equitation CentreA new CBBC children’s Saturday morning show ‘Mighty Truck of Stuff’ will showcase the Isle of Man’s scenery in the second programme of the series on Saturday 8 April. The new show is set to replace the ever popular programme Dick and Dom.

    The concept of the show is that star of Fame Academy and TV presenter Reggie Yates must fill an entire truck full of items (anything from bikes, computers, toys etc) by the end of the live show. The catch is that Reggie cannot simply put any items on the truck – he must earn them which involves live challenges in the studio and out and about filming during the week. By the end of the show the entire contents of the truck will be won by one child and driven to their home.

    Reggie was sent on a mission to the Isle of Man last Wednesday to gather as much stuff as he could for his truck. His challenge on the show on 8 April is to visit as many viewers as possible who want to get involved in the show, but can’t because they are unable to make it down to London, to pick up prizes they want to donate and he must do this all in one day and on as many modes of transport as possible.

    Reggie arrived on a Euromanx flight and on his travels met and received gifts from pupils at Phurt Le Moirrey school, Michael Kneale at Port St Mary life boat station, Michael Brooks at Castletown Golf Links, Peter Smith with his kite buggy and 11 year old Ballakermeen High School Pupil Peter McGinn at GGH Equitation Centre.

    Tourism and Leisure Minister David Cretney MHK said:

    ‘I’m delighted that CBBC’s Mighty Truck of Stuff chose to film part of the second show in the Isle of Man. The weather was superb and I believe producer of the programme, Simone Haywood, referred to the Isle of Man as ‘a beautiful place’. She enjoyed the day’s shoot so much that she’s hoping to return to explore more of the Island soon, and indeed she will be made most welcome.’

    There will be two 3 minute slots featuring the Isle of Man during the programme which will be broadcast between 9.00 am – 11.45 am on BBC2.
