- Viewers can also look out for the story of pink tubby custard turning green and a very special Tubby Custard ride carriage for Noo-noo!
Rochelle Humes says: “I’ve always been such a big fan of the Teletubbies. My sister and I used to watch it together when we were younger and as I now have a little girl, it was a real ‘no-brainer” to be part of it. I jumped at the chance to be involved.
