The hunt is on to find four young anglers to appear in a new TV tribute series alongside John Bailey.

Mr Crabtree Goes Fishing sold millions of copies and the cartoon character was alive in the pages of the Daily Mirror for 25 years. Now he’s back! The series, called ‘In the Footsteps of Mr Crabtree’ will appear on TV later this year. Filming starts in March. And the hunt is on for youngsters between eight and 14 to appear in the shows.
