Entertainment Television Programmes. 10 stone, 5' 9 John Noakes today discovered how to become Henry VIII's double for the 'Blue Peter' programmes to be seen on Thursday. John is much smaller and five stone lighter than Henry and John soon found out the answer - in make-up and costume. He spent two hours at BBC Line Grove Studios, in make-up and wardrobe getting ready for the part - complete with beard, mouth padding, the fifty piece costume worth over ??200, then a wealth of belts, overtights, undertights, feathered hat, dagger, cloak. After being dressed as the King, John then stepped from a picture frame to be undress by fellow 'Blue Peter' presenters, Val Singleton and Peter Purves to present the 'real' John Noakes!.
