A brand new gymnastics series starts 1st May on CBBC!

'Gym Stars' goes behind the scenes with exciting young gymnasts and their coaches from British Gymnastics member clubs. The series has been created by Drummer TV, a Bristol-based production company and shows life as it happens for the cast of gymnasts in the Bristol and Bath area. The series is filmed in a documentary style and includes training sessions, competitions as well as life outside the gym. 
Drummer TV approached us at the early stage of development in 2017 to seek our help and support. After discussions to better understand the series and the production team's credentials, we agreed to help support the TV team and the clubs involved. Whilst we haven’t been afforded any editorial rights (such as which clubs and gymnasts were selected for the show and what stories are included), we have helped educate and support the production team as appropriate. 
The series will be broadcast on Tuesdays from 1st May at 5:45pm on CBBC and available on BBC iPlayer. Look out for special appearances from GB gymnastics stars and Olympians including Nile Wilson, Amy Tinkler, the Downie sisters and Max Whitlock MBE.
