Konnie Huq relives Blue Peter past with nostalgic science experiment
Konnie Huq returned to her Blue Peter roots this weekend after leading a science experiment on Sunday Brunch.
The 44-year-old appeared on the show to promote her new childrens book, Cookie and the Most Annoying Boy in the World, when presenters Simon Rimmer and Tim Lovejoy roped the former kids TV fave into demonstrating everyones favourite coke and mentos experiment.
Watching the fountain or coke-flavoured foam explode right up into the studio lights, Tim was seen diving for cover quicker than you could say heres one I made earlier.
Sharing the slow-mo clip on Instagram, Konnie wrote: Lets [sic] watch that back! @SundayBrunchC4 has had a science takeover! #cookiebykonnie #science.
The presenter, who has two children with husband of nine years and Black Mirror creator Charlie Brooker, was Blue Peters longest-serving female presenter and worked on the show between 1997 and 2008.
However, despite being an icon to a generation of fans, the host revealed that she struggled to cope with life after Blue Peter.

Everything was so planned out and stable, she told the Huffington Post, having joined the CBBC flagship show immediately after graduating university, but I remember being off Blue Peter and then suddenly being freelance.
I was in this stage thinking: “I dont know where my next meal is coming from,” she continued.
However, Konnie added that she has learned to value mental wellbeing over the years, saying: Mental health really is a search to be happy, I think thats what people want in life – and if youre happy youre winning.
