Justin Fletcher Interview
Interviewer: “Let me begin by saying thank you for entertaining my children for the last 10 years on shows like Tikkabilla and Tweenies
Justin Fletcher: Thank you, I actually started out on kids TV 17 years ago on a Saturday morning show called Fun Song Factory singing children’s songs, many of which are on the album Hands Up
Interviewer: What made you want to bring out an album now?
Justin Fletcher: I do a lot of family festivals and large events such as Camp Bestival which attract huge audiences and I base my show around the songs. It is wonderful to see a sea of people, especially the mums and dads joining in with the children singing and dancing.
Interviewer: How did you decide which songs to include?
Justin Fletcher: We talked to hundreds of children about what songs they loved to dance to. I wanted an album that would get children and adults alike up and dancing, doing the actions. We added a disco beat and great backing music too
Interviewer: Which is your favourite song from the album Hands Up?
Justin Fletcher: It has to be the single Hands Up. It was written by me and I always finish my shows with that song as it always gets the biggest reaction from the audience.
Interviewer: Are you going on tour?
Justin Fletcher: I am doing the CBeebies tour with a number of CBeebies favourites including Katy Ashworth, Andy Day, PC Plum, Robbie Rotten, Mike the Knight and many more. We will feature most of the songs from the album
Interviewer: We love your TV shows too in our family. What was the inspiration behind Justin’s House?
Justin: I loved Crackajack and Noels House Party and wanted to do something similar for the Under 5’s. I love playing to a live audience and I think having the audience really makes the show. Little Monster is a particular favourite as she gets the children shouting!
Interviewer: So, are there any similarities between Justin’s House and the real Justin’s House
Justin: Yes – I’m a big kid. I collect theatre props, vehicles etc. I own 4 Bumper Cars!
Interviewer: Is there going to be a new series of Justin’s House?
Justin: Yes, I am excited to announce that it has just been commissioned for another 25 episodes!
Interviewer: My children loves Gigglebiz too, in fact it is funnier than most adult comedy shows. Where do you get your influence for characters?
Justin: I love sketch shows and I wanted to make a pre-school Fast Show. Some of the characters are over 15 years old!
Interviewer: Which one do you enjoy playing the most?
Justin: Everyone asks that! I can’t answer – Gail Force, Deena Lady, Arthur Sleep………….
Interviewer: Ok, so which one are you most like in real life?
Justin: Professor Muddles without a doubt as I am so clumsy!
Interviewer: Something Special is probably one of my favourites as I adore Mr Tumble and have always been surprised at how quickly my children pick up the signing. Will there be a new series of that?
Justin: Yes – we have also been commissioned for another series of 25 episodes. I love going out and about to schools and meeting the children. I am always surprised at how quickly they pick up the signing too.
Interviewer: I think it makes a real difference to children with special needs
Justin: There is no other show like it. It is the only CBeebies show in the schedule that never moves from its 9.45am slot. Teaching Makaton is wonderful and it really helps children who have no other way of communicating.
Interviewer: I have to ask, will there be any new additions to the Tumble family?
Justin: Yes, we have a brain storming session in about three weeks
Interviewer: Can I make a suggestion for a 00Tumble – Super Spy?
Justin: HaHa, I have heard that mentioned before – I shall write it in my diary. Secret Agent Tumble!
Interviewer: We saw you filming Mr Tumble’s Day Out in Bournemouth, was it fun to film?
Justin: Yes, it was a beautiful day and we really enjoyed ourselves. We have to keep where we are filming quite quiet as if children see Mr Tumble they all want to come and say Hello!”
Sadly I ran out of time for more questions, but can honestly say that Justin Fletcher obviously enjoys making children’s TV and has no plans to stop. He is genuine and honest and was really lovely to chat too – I had no reason to be nervous.
