Wycombe High School is launching its own virtual TV show, where students talk face to face with famous people.

Pupils are planning a series of online interviews with celebrities from the worlds of politics, showbiz, sport, movies and business.

On the students’ shortlist of stars are the likes of TV presenters Holly Willoughby, Tess Daly, Nadiya Hussain and Gabby Logan, US World Cup winner, Alex Morgan, Debora Meaden from Dragon’s Den, WHS alumni Rachel Burden and Toni Brodelle and the strongest man in world football, Wycombe Wanderers striker Adebayo Akinfenwa.

The famous face for the first ever ‘Wycombe High Meets’ webcast show is Wycombe MP, Steve Baker, who is looking forward to the encounter on Friday (September 18).

He said: “I am delighted Wycombe High School and schools across the constituency are now back from the summer. With coronavirus leading the news at a time when we come to the highest pressure part of our EU negotiations, I'm expecting to be given the usual range of tough questions.

“Students at Wycombe High School are incredibly talented and energetic. They follow politics vigorously so, of course, I'll be making sure I'm as ready as possible for their demanding interrogation."

Head teacher, Sharon Cromie said: “The ‘Wycombe High Meets’ show is a wonderful opportunity for our students and we are delighted Mr Baker has agreed to take part. I hope he is ready for some testing questions as the students have been very busy with their research!

“As well as politicians from all the major parties, we have already had a terrific response from famous faces who are luminaries in other spheres of life, including some really interesting names.

“Because the programme is recorded online, it means our students can meet inspiring people despite the current safety precautions and makes it easier for the guests to take part."
