We Were On the TV – Channel 4’s Gadget Man

Channel 4 Gadget Man
A few months back during summer I tweeted that we were off to do some filming well we were on TV woohoo! Hayden had his first TV debut and he looked so cute! I received an email from a media company looking for parents to take part in Season Two of Gadget man. The last season was hosted by Steven Fry but this one was hosted by Richard Ayoade famously known for starting in The IT Crowd and the VERY funny ‘The Watch’ film which also starred three of my favorite funny actors Vice Vaughn, Jonah Hill & Ben Stiller.

Getting there wasn’t hard at all well filming was in a Park in Hackney called Clissold Park, other then the major road works they decided to start on the main road to get to the park from my house… PANIC PANIC PANIC. Once I got there I saw a familiar face I had met before from The Baby Show Tommee Tippee Revel a really awesome blogger Kip and another lady. There was three of us reviewing three different pushchairs.

Kip Had the Seed Pli Mg, The other lady had the 4moms ORIGAMI and I had the Joie Lite Trax Stroller – Jet. I really liked mine. I could close it with one hand while still holding Hayden!

It was such a great day – Hot but fun, we were filming for 5 hours in the summer sunshine stopping for 30min breaks for the little’s and also having lunch. Our part was chopped right down – I was scared because we had speaking parts and I hate hearing myself talk (Yes I make YouTube videos… BUT… I do cringe most of the time while editing) so I was so scared about what they would air … As you can see from watching the video – Not very much!

Here are some stills from the video of the day.

Blow is Hayden playing peek-a-boo with one of the production teams hats – The production team were amazing! We were well looked after and nothing was too much trouble for them. They even sheltered us from the sun with umbrella’s between takes.
I am so proud of Hayden he was such a good boy on the way home he was konked – Its such a draining life as a child star haha.
The top he is sporting is the Polarn O.Pyret UK BABY POLO SHIRT
