More Embarrassment For Blue Peter

More embarrassing news for the BBC show "Blue Peter": it turns out that two child "viewers" advertised for via a website and selected to meet Jon Culshaw, a star of the hit show "Dead Ringers" were actually members of a local drama club. The BBC hastens to clarify that the children were still amateurs, not professional actors. The truth came out after one of the children admitted to another one participating that he was from "an agency." Read more here in a BBC story and here in a Times Online story.
