My life is complete. Seriously.
Forget the fact I have a beautiful daughter, am getting married to a wonderful man and do a job I love. None of that matters. Because I have interviewed Mr Tumble.
Yes, you heard me right. The Mr Tumble.
Now, for those of you without young children, the Mr Tumble craze may have passed you by. You may even have missed out on Gigglebiz characters like Nana Knickerbocker and Arthur Sleep. These are all the creations of Justin Fletcher – aka Mr Tumble. He’s a bit of a CBeebies legend and all-round-bigwig amongst toddlers. And I got to interview him.
Forget Gary Barlow (unless you’re reading this Gary – in which case you’re still my number one), Mr Tumble is the one I’ve wanted to interview ever since the birth of Frog and my relationship with children’s TV began.
As much as I wish I could say Justin Fletcher is a grumpy so-and-so who actually hates children in real life, it’s not the case. He’s probably the nicest bloke I’ve ever interviewed and is genuinely as cheery as you find him on the telly.
You can read my interview with him over at Real Parenting today.
