‘you can’t eat a princess!’ on cbeebies!!!
Hurrah! It’s up on the BBC iPlayer! Thanks to the fab Gina McKee for reading You Can’t Eat a Princess for CBeebies! She did a brilliant job. I’ve read it so many times now in schools that it was fascinating to see where she put the emphasis on words and her expressions. … And the aliens have Northern accents! The story’s writer, Gillian Rogerson is based up in Leeds, I bet she got a kick out of that. I must go ring her now an see what she thought. I suspect that I have the wrong copy of her number here at the studio, I rang 20 minutes ago and got through to a snooker club. Bizarre! (Unless Gillian secretly lives in a snooker club.)
