England captain, Leah Williamson, has designed Blue Peter’s new sport badge, which will be unveiled on this evening’s show.

The Arsenal defender is the latest big name star to design one of the coveted badges, following Sky Brown and Ed Sheeran.

“It’s such an honour to design the new Blue Peter Sport badge. I want the next generation to feel inspired and have the self belief to try any sport they want to.  I hope they feel the same joy I do when taking part in sport,” she explained.

The new design features a football, rugby ball, cricket ball, tennis ball and shuttlecock to inspire young people to try different sports.

“I love the new badge. Sport is so important; it is so good for mental health as well as getting you out and active,” said Blue Peter Presenter, Abby Cook.

“So, don’t let anything stop you, get involved and give a new activity a go. I can’t wait to see all your pictures and read about what sports you’ve been doing to earn your badges!” 

The Blue Peter sport badge is awarded to children aged 5-15 for getting active and trying a sport they’ve never tried before.  

It’s 60 years since the badge was introduced to the long-running children’s series.

Blue Peter is a BBC Studios Kids & Family Production for CBBC, based at MediaCity.
