No Blue Peter badge for Sajid Javid as he lives the dream at BBC studio

City A.M. Reporter
Hello There! Sajid Javid with presenters Barney Harwood, Lindsey Russell and Radzi Chinyanganya
The Rt Hon Member of Parliament for Bromsgrove and UK Secretary of State for Culture, Media & Sport Sajid Javid is no luvvie. Not a bit of it.

However, when it comes to reliving his childhood, he’ll jump at the opportunity.

Yesterday, Sajid was doing a tour of TV studios, as you do, taking in the Coronation Street set and the BBC’s swish new head­quarters in Salford, Media City.

He wasted no time in tweeting: Living out my childhood dream at Blue Peter…” So far, so here’s one I made earlier.

Unfortunately, poor Sajid had to add: “Wasn't allowed a badge though”.

Of course you weren’t, Sajid. The rules state clearly that you only get one for sending an interesting letter, email, story, picture, poem, a good idea for the programme, or for having appeared on Blue Peter.

You might be a Secretary of State, but rules are rules…
