Junior Just A Minute

The BBC is to run five episodes of a kids version of Just A Minute. Children aged between 10 and 13 are to compete against each other with the held of adult JAM players - Jenny Eclair and Josie Lawrence have been mentioned - and under the watchful eye of Nicholas Parsons.

Here's how the BBC reported on it

The Independent is here

and here's the comedy website Chortle

I guess I'm in two minds. I like the idea of JAM reinventing itself, but I worry about whether children will be any good at it.

Anyway - it's certainly an interesting development!

He sounds like an interesting addition to the JAM family.
