Julio is New CBeebies Star

A Manx two-year-old will be debuting on CBeebies today as part of The Toddler Club.

Julio Garforth has been filmed on the island, including on Port Erin beach.

His first appearances will be spread out along this week as part of a five-year contract his family have signed the BBC.

Having auditioned back in September 2021, Julio was filmed by his very proud mum Julia performing four dances which impressed the studio so much, they asked for 17 more videos of him reacting to things.

The series, presented by Nigel Clarke and Gemma Atkinson, starts today at 10.20am on CBeebies.

When on island, Julia said Julio enjoys going to Singing Jo & Co and SPLM Tots.
