The Great British Book Shop is proud to promote 'Spelling Star'! - from the makers of Pointless (BBC One), and Deal or No Deal (Channel 4), it's a new educational family entertainment show for Sky1. ‘Spelling Star’ is aimed at children aged between 9 and 13. The programme follows a number of children as they take on various word-based competition rounds, from speed spelling to identifying incorrectly spelled words, and clue-based questions to relay-style challenges.

    It's a warm-hearted, family show celebrating amazing children at their very best. We also hope it will be a valuable educational experience, promoting reading and literacy skills and engaging them in healthy competition within a supportive studio environment.
