Bookaboo competition - meet the winner Des Hegarty

Keep a look out for Des coming on CiTV very soon!

Earlier this year we launched a competition to find the UK’s best storytelling teacher – with the chance to star in a special episode of hit children’s TV show Bookaboo. Primary teachers from around the UK sent in audition videos of themselves reading aloud from picture books. Bookaboo creator Lucy Goodman chose Des Hegarty from Wilbury Primary School in London as the winner.

Tune in to watch Des and Wilbury Primary School feature in a special episode of Bookaboo on Saturday 14 December at 7.25 am on ITV and CITV. Also repeated on Friday 20 December at 10.50am on CITV
