Welcome to the
Live and Kicking
guide at TV Tome.
Live and Kicking was the fourth programme to occupy the Saturday Morning slot.
The Presenters and the Show
The BAFTA award winning Live and Kicking had it's debut in 1993, and is the longest running programme in the slot having entered into it's eighth series in 2000.
The programme has survived having four completely different presenting teams through it's run. The original presenters Andi Peters and Emma Forbes were replaced by Jamie Theakston and Zoë Ball, who in turn were replaced by Steve Wilson and Emma Ledden, who in turn were... well, we'll come to that a little later. Once again, the tried and tested format of live television, guests, pop music, cartoons, competitions and live phone-ins was used. As they say... if it ain't broke - don't fix it!
Another thing that's been unique to this incarnation of the Saturday Morning format is the sheer number of supporting 'cast' it's had. Take a look at the data sheetActors:
Andi Peters, Trey Farley, Dannii Minogue, Sarah Greene, Heather Suttie, Sarah Cawood, Zoë Ball
