Television's most famous garden got an early Christmas makeover when One Show hosts Jason Manford and Alex Jones visited to help launch the Blue Peter Appeal.

They joined the presenters of the long-running children's show Andy Akinwolere, Helen Skelton and Joel Defries in the London garden, which was covered in fake snow for the occasion.

The show's viewers are being asked to make homemade Christmas cards which will be sold in shops across the country to help raise money for a charity called Whizz Kidz that works with disabled children.

Jones and Manford replaced previous hosts, Adrian Chiles and Christine Bleakley, on the One Show sofa last month.
