Live and Kicking
23 December 2006 | by mrs_johnny_dSee all my reviews

I think Live & Kicking was a generation thing. You had to grow up with it, and you had to learn to love the presenters. The best presenters were Zoe Ball and Jamie Theakston, but Andi Peters and Emma Forbes were brilliant as well. Live and Kicking made getting up early on Saturday worth it. The crazy segments and shows were great. Watching your favourite stars mess about and get gunged was fantastic for a four year old. Mr Blobby was always part of the show and seeing him mess around and make the presenters lives hell was hilarious. The segments where Jamie Theakston would show your bedroom or embarrass you for no reasons were the best bits because you always worried that your parents might put you on there.
