CBeebies Presenter Nigel
Being Cbeebies presenter Nigel is an incredibly fun job so I thought I’d add this post to the Nigel Clarke blog. One of the reasons I love my job so much is that every day is different. One day I could be singing about different animals the next I might be explaining the planets of the solar system. So I have decided to put some of my favourite moments here on this post so you can enjoy them with me. I will split them up into 2 categories. Sketches and Songs. I have to give a big shout out to my CBeebies family Evie Pickerill, Katy Ashworth, Rebecca Keatley, Ben Cajee and Dodge (aka Warrick Brownlow-Pike). They are a crazy bunch who make this job even more fun.
I hope you enjoy them and feel free to leave your comments in the section below. And make sure you check back regularly as I’ll be updating this page as and when new material comes in.
Favourite CBeebies Sketches
Check out this @cbeebieshq link @evie.pickerill and I did for #worldbookdayHad a lot of laughs making this one! Might use it for my Panto audition tape 😂😂Hope your little people had lots of fun dressing up too! 😉👊🏾#cbeebies #kidstv #presenters #panto #rapunzel #tangledPosted by Nigel Clarke - TV Presenter on Thursday, March 5, 2020
This is me as Rapunzel for World Book Day. It took a few takes for Evie to stop laughing but it was well worth it in the end. Definitely my favourite link to date.
Derek and Delores Cake making
Well the latest developments are that restaurants, bars, clubs, leisure centres, gyms are all shuting indefinitely at close of play today! But in these shocking times that we are all adapting to, let's remember that if we pull together we'll get through this.So here is a little humourous CBeebies help from 'Derek & Delores' for your cake baking skills which will need to be on point in the coming weeks.Stay safe and keep smiling Nxx#cbeebies #kidstv #bakeoff #funny #humour #comedysketchPosted by Nigel Clarke - TV Presenter on Friday, March 20, 2020
Derek & Delores Cake Making
I always have lots of fun playing my alter ego Derek. He’s a bit of a loose canon and you never know where he may go. This was the first time Derek & Delores ever met but I think they should definitely do more together.

Think this the most popular song I’ve been part of. It received a lot of love on the socials and drove many of you round the bend as is got stuck in your heads.

John Mcinroe eat you heart out! 🤣#cbeebies #wintersong #kidstv #presenters #winterPosted by Nigel Clarke - TV Presenter on Wednesday, February 26, 2020
Always fun doing a song with Dodge and Evie. Loved the staging of this one, opening shots are classic cheese. And let’s not even start on the sweat band life!

Imagination Adventure Song
With its inspiration lying somewhere between The Greatest Showman and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory the Imagination Adventure song is a work of art. I wasn’t meant to sing soprano but after messing around in rehearsals it kinda stuck!
Fish Song (High Low, Fast and Slow)
More fun song times in the CBeebies House with Katy Ashworth to keep your spirits up in these testing times! 🎶!We had a very energetic afternoon learning and choreographing this one and were very happy with the results. Definitely another banger to stick on the Straight Outta CBeebies album! 😜😂If you or your little ones want to send us a video of you giving it a go we'd love to see you attempts.What a lot of us would give to be having an aquatic adventure next to a lovely beach with a Pina Colada🍹and no worries! #cbeebies #kidstv #tvpresenters #fishsong #fish #fishfun #katyashworthPosted by Nigel Clarke - TV Presenter on Wednesday, April 1, 2020
The Fish Song
This was another energetic afternoon in the CBeebies House with miss Katy Ashworth. We loved the track from the first listen, which isn’t always the case. One hour and a few takes later this master piece was shot.
