Reporter Callum, 14, got to visit the Doctor Who set in Cardiff when he followed the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall.

"It was the best thing ever because I used to watch Doctor Who as a child and to be there was absolutely amazing," he told the BBC.

The three reporters Aleem, Saffron and Callum were chosen after a presenting "boot camp" with Blue Peter hosts Helen Skelton and Barney Harwood.
