Join TV show and be filmed at World Custard Pie Championships in Maidstone this summer

By Angela Cole

A CBBC TV crew are set to take part in this year's World Custard Pie Championships - and they want you to join them.

The team from the show All Over the Place will take part in the championships - to be held in Coxheath near Maidstone in June - and film proceedings as part of their tenth series.

But organisers of the 52nd championships, which will be held on Saturday, June 1, need team members to join them.

Founder Mike FitzGerald said: "Their presenters want to be part of two different teams which will be featured in their programme to be shown later in the year.

"We have yet to learn who the presenters are yet, but we are asking for six people to come forward to make up the two teams."

This year's event will be the 52nd time the messy championships will have been held.

Teams of four do battle under strict rules and throw pies - made using a secret recipe devised by children's presenter Mr Pastry - at eachother, aiming for a direct hit in the face, which scores six points, three points for a near miss and one point for hitting any other part of the body.

There are also still a few spaces left for teams of four.

It's not the first time TV crews have descended on the championships. Last year, Penelope Keith filmed for Village of the Year and Japanese crews have filmed two years running.
