Blast From The Past - Huw Chivers In The Blue Peter Garden

by Neil Hart

We were going through some drawers at Hot Tub Barn headquarters, and stumbled upon this set of photos, which have never seen the light of day! We thought we'd share them with you, and we're also hoping you can help solve a mystery..

8 years ago, we received a call from the BBC, asking if it was possible to deliver a hot tub directly to the world famous (and now defunct) Blue Peter garden.

When the revered blue ship comes calling, you can't possibly say no, so we duly obliged, installing a blue HotSpring Sovereign on the hallowed ground amongst the many time capsules, sculptures, and the remains of George the Tortoise.

Huw Chivers with Blue Peter presenters Konnie Huq, Matt Baker and Simon Thomas in the hot tubThe Blue Peter presenters at the time included the beautiful Konnie Huq, Matt Baker (now presenter on BBC1's The One Show), and Simon Thomas (now a familiar face to viewers of Sky Sports). The fourth presenter - well, we are having trouble identifying him. Can you help? Let us know in the comments below!

The entire show was presented live from the warmth and comfort of the hot tub with our very own Huw Chivers looking on.

We've even managed to find a clip.. The Blue Peter team in action (with Mabel the Dog in the background) Matt Baker puts his feet up in the HotSpring spa
