A whole new generation of children will be able to enjoy the delights of teatime show Crackerjack, as it returns to our screens after a 36-year break.
Between 1955 and 1984, if it was a Friday, at five to five, then for boys and girls across the country it meant being glued to the living room television set for 40 minutes of variety show entertainment.
However, as the show is revived with new hosts Sam & Mark for a spot on CBBC there will be one major difference.

The show's introduction will be changed to: 'It’s Friday. It’s six o’clock. And it’s Crackerjack!'
The later 6pm start, which breaks with the iconic announcement, is a sign of the times, according to the show’s co-host Sam Nixon.
'Five to five is very early these days, what with after-school clubs. There wouldn’t be enough people watching because they’d not be home in time,' he told Radio Times.
