A CBeebies presenter and three lucky youngsters were spotted filming for a popular children’s TV show in Gorleston.

Presenter Ranger Hamza, a wildlife cameraman, explored the coastal town for a new children's TV series.

The film crew followed Mr Hamza and three children, chosen from a local school, around Gorleston on Tuesday, April 26.  

Ahead of filming, David Frosdick, owner of B&D cycles in Lowestoft Road, was contacted by the production team who asked if they could use his shop as a backdrop. 

On the day he also managed to get a photograph with Mr Hamza.  

The 74-year-old who has been running the shop for 39-years said: “I knew they were coming because I was contacted a few weeks ago. 

“They had noticed my shop and how nice the window looked, so they asked if they could do some filming outside.

“I have been here 39 years and everyone knows my shop but any publicity is good. 

“I also got a nice picture with Ranger. He was a really lovely chap.” 

Onlookers snapped the film crew during their travels throughout the day, including outside of Clean & Dry laundrette. 

Mr Frosdick added: “They went into the schools about six weeks ago and picked some children to be involved. 

“They were here, there and everywhere, all around Gorleston. They had a full day with the film crew.”

The BBC confirmed that filming was taking place in Gorleston for the new series.
