Look North presenter Peter Levy was the one answering the questions as he faced a crowd of tough young interviewers.

The anchor man was the special guest at the Hull Children’s University’s Ambassadors event, held at the KCOM Learning Zone today, when he took part in a Q&A session with Year 6 children from St Richards VC Academy, east Hull.

Among the tough questions posed at the presenter were: “Who was your favourite teacher?”, “What would you change about Hull?”, “Do you have any pets?” and “What colour did your hair used to be?”.

Consummate professional Peter tactfully dodged a question asking him which Hull rugby team he supported and also who was his favourite person from Hull, although the children did manage to discover Peter doesn’t have any pets, that he would like to interview Prince Charles and that he wanted to be a pilot growing up.

Year six pupil Rachel Szabo, 10, said she was delighted to meet a real life celebrity while learning what it means to be an ambassador for her home city.

She said: “I was really excited to meet Peter as I’ve never met a celebrity before and it was nice to be able to ask him some questions. I watch him on the TV so to see him in real life was really nice.”

Mercedes Griffin, also 10, said: “I got goose bumps when he walked out. It’s good to meet someone famous in real life. I want to be a news presenter when I grow up too.”

Talking about living in Hull, Peter, who is marking his 30th year on the TV this year, said: “I think Hull is fabulous. In the past two or three years it has all really come together in Hull and it is almost unrecognisable from what it was when I first moved here in 2002.

“I was walking around the waterfront the other day and it just looks completely different, there’s a definite buzz about the city.”

As the Year 10 grilling continued, Peter revealed he’d like to see Prime Minster Theresa May visit Hull, that his favourite teacher at school was English teacher Mr Shelton and that he lost his first wobbly tooth at the age of five.

Peter is the latest celebrity to take part in the Hull Children’s University Ambassadors module, which is aimed at teaching youngsters about being a positive role model for the city.

Former Apprentice winner, TV pundit and Hull parliamentary candidate Michelle Dewberry and former Hull City and England footballer Nick Barmby have both previously visited the Learning Zone to meet more school children.
