Adam Beales will become the 40th Blue Peter presenter and will co-host alongside Lindsey Russell, Richie Driss, Mwaka Mudenda and Henry the dog, in his first show this Thursday, September 3.

Adam Beales, 20, from Londonderry in Northern Ireland, will be the programme’s 40th presenter and will make his debut on Thursday afternoon.

He will be co-hosting the popular children’s show alongside Lindsey Russell, Richie Driss, Mwaka Mudenda and Henry the dog.

Adam, known online as Adam B, follows in the footsteps of fellow Northern Irish presenters the late Caron Keating and, more recently, Zoe Salmon.

He is already a regular face on CBBC’s The Dog Ate My Homework, hosted by Love Island narrator Iain Stirling.

Adam was head boy at school and was considering Oxford or Cambridge universities before his YouTube channel took off, which now has nearly three million subscribers.

His mother, father and younger brother, Callum, 11, often feature in his videos, which include pranks, challenges, DIY crafts and life hacks.

Adam said he was “super excited” to be joining the programme. “I am humbled and ecstatic to be part of such a legendary production,” he said.

“It’s kind of weird – in a super exciting way – that the show I once watched when I was younger, is now the show I will be presenting. I can’t wait to get stuck in, even with the challenges they throw at me, though I am hoping none of them involve cheese – I hate cheese.”
