Freddie reaches final four of Blue Peter’s hunt

Former farmer Freddie Ingleby has reached the final four in the search for the next Blue Peter presenter.

The 24-year-old, who grew up near Lake of Menteith, is one of more than 20,000 people who applied to be on the world’s longest-running children’s TV programme.

Producers selected 10 hopefuls to take part in an X Factor-style search known as Blue Peter You Decide!

The third episode was screened this week and Freddie avoided elimination after a series of challenges.

The former Ardvreck School and Glenalmond College pupil won the approval of judges Eammon Holmes, Myleene Klass and Ceallach Spellman.

The next episode of Blue Peter You Decide! will be on CBBC on Monday at 5pm.
