Sorry state of affairs for Konnie

Blue Peter's departing Konnie Huq today reflects on her 10 years as a presenter on the BBC children's show. Talking to the BBC website, she picks the show's recent travails over faking a competition result and rigging a viewer poll to name a cat as her worst Blue Peter moments. "Recently it wasn't so great with Catgate and telephone line-gate and all of that - that wasn't brilliant." But Konnie reveals that her agent got her out of the firing line when it came to apologising to the kids about the cat-naming scandal. "You know what - I didn't do the apology for that. My agent said 'she's apologised enough' so the other presenter did it and I got to introduce the new cat. I think people just assume it was me."
