Giovanna Fletcher’s CBeebies show praised for character with limb difference

Former Great British Bake Off contestant Briony May Williams has commended Giovanna Fletcher’s new CBeebies show for including a character with limb difference.

Earlier this week, it was announced that Giovanna’s first TV role since being crowned the winner of I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! would be as co-host of CBeebies programme The Toddler at Home, alongside Nigel Clarke.

The series is a spin-off from The Baby Club, which Giovanna and Nigel previously presented together.

In a press release published for The Toddler at Home, Three Arrows Media, the production company behind the show, announced the introduction of two new cuddly characters.

‘[Giovanna and Nigel] are ably assisted by new soft-toy characters the Toddler Twins – Benjee Bear and Bailee Bear – the latter of whom has partial limb loss and is missing her lower left arm,’ the announcement said.

Briony, who was born without any fingers on her left hand, celebrated the news on Twitter, writing: ‘I can’t tell you how wonderful it is that @MrsGiFletcher’s new @CBeebiesHQ Toddler Club is including a character with a limb difference.’

The Toddler Club at Home will air on CBeebies in January.
