WET weather failed to dampen the enthusiasm of Sheffield families who donned their wellies, put up their brollies and flocked to Endcliffe Park for a live broadcast of BBC programme The One Show.

The flagship show chose Sheffield as the destination for its first ever roadshow - featuring hosts Alex Jones and Matt Baker and presenters Angellica Bell and Anita Rani.

After fears rain may stop play, the broadcast was screened as planned.

A spokeswoman said: “We had a bit of a damp start which delayed proceedings but the outside broadcast still went ahead.”

Executive producer Moray London said: “We were delighted Sheffield agreed to play host to our first One Show roadshow. It was a fantastic event with something for everyone.”

The event gave viewers the chance to take part in live interactive performances throughout the day, including a wildlife feature with TV naturalist Mark Dilger, a science event featuring the show’s inventor Marty Jopson, and the chance to become part of The One Show choir - led by pop vocal coach Carrie Grant.

There were a number of ‘zones’ where visitors could find out more about money, art, sport, science and history.

Visitors met presenters and local experts who shared tips, advice and information.

People were allowed to have a go at some hands-on activities.

Among the visitors were Daniel Ronksley and his sister Vanessa, who visited the history tent and found out more about Sheffield’s steel-making heritage.

Honey Parkin, aged eight, visited the science tent to find out if a phone book could hold her weight.

Other youngsters had the chance to try racing around a cycle track.
