We're with Blue Peter's newest talent.

Carney and Fleur enjoyed a great day’s filming with the BBC for Abby Cook's first ever Blue Peter Challenge. Abby is the CBBC show’s 42nd presenter and it was such a pleasure for Crows Nest Films to provide drone services for the BBC and work with this absolute dream team.

The episode goes out this Friday at 1700 and you can catch it on BBC iPlayer

Falkirk wheelchair racer Abby Cook said she was "speechless" after being chosen as the 42nd Blue Peter presenter.

Abby, 20, will join Mwaka Mudenda, Joel Mawhinney and Henry the dog as she makes her debut on the long-running BBC children's show on Friday.

She trains twice a week with Paralympians as part of the Forth Valley Flyers athletics club, but that didn't prepare her for her first challenge.  She will combat her fear of heights to collect a Blue Peter badge by abseiling down Millers Dale Viaduct in the Peak District National Park.
