Samaira Iqbal and Charlotte Peters, both from Hemel Hempstead, were selected as TV presenters for Game Changers on Sky Sports 3

Samaira Iqbal was stunned when she was picked to present a news bulletin on Game Changers, a Sky Sports 3 show targeted at children who love sport.

She picked classmate Charlotte Peters to film the segment with her during February half-term, and the two girls, both aged 10, saw their bulletin broadcast on Friday.

Samaira said: “It was my first time ever on TV and despite feeling a bit nervous, the producer said I did really well and that I was a complete natural on screen.

“I couldn’t believe that I completed it all in one take!”
