Calling herself 'Josephine', Josie D'Arby auditions to be a CBBC presenter in this screentest. There are birthday cards to start off with, then D'Arby introduces herself and confesses that she's still studying at Rada and has come to the audition in secret. Next up, it's the interview spot and she poses questions to CBBC presenter and 'Broom Cupboard' host Toby Anstis. Finally, there's also a surprise extra guest, who challenges D'Arby to a 'joke-off'.
