CBBC's Dick and Dom will host the search for someone to join the present team of Barney Harwood and Helen Skelton.

CBBC's Dick and Dom will host the search for someone to join the present team of Barney Harwood and Helen Skelton.

Contenders will have to win their way through a series of challenges to reach the final, where the winners will be chosen by CBBC's audience.

"Working on Blue Peter is a dream job for any aspiring presenter," said CBBC controller Cheryl Taylor.

"Our search for a new face to join Helen and Barney will generate a huge level of excitement for CBBC viewers.

"With the irrepressible Dick and Dom on hand to orchestrate proceedings we anticipate high tension and high jinks."

The series, which has a working title of So You Think You Can Be A Blue Peter Presenter, starts this summer.

The BBC's flagship children's show was first screened in 1958 and was best known for the phrase, "Here's one I made earlier".

In recent years it has launched the careers of TV presenters like Matt Baker, Konnie Huq and Zoe Salmon.

Other famous names to come from the show include Valerie Singleton, Janet Ellis, John Noakes, Anthea Turner and Peter Purves.

Blue Peter, aimed at six to 12-year-olds, is the world's longest-running children's television programme and switched from BBC One to CBBC last year.
