CMC empowering students

Posted on: Sunday 01 July 2012 12:27pm

Now at the dizzying height of Series Producer, I’ve been spending the last couple of years making vegetables talk in the joyously bunting-tastic Mr Bloom’s Nursery. It’s a hoot to make – wonderful team, and I don’t care what you say, Ben Faulks (Mr Bloom himself) is the nicest bloke in telly. That Mumsnet readers find him the tinciest bit attractive isn’t something that I’m going to exploit TOO much this summer as we film the new series…
