Former Blue Peter presenter, John Noakes, was the children's show's longest-serving presenter, appearing for more than 12 years.

Noakes joined the show at the end of 1965 after training as an engine fitter for the RAF and stayed until 1978. He became a favourite as the show's action man and continued to play on that image with several series of Go With Noakes, where he travelled around the UK with Shep alongside him, leading to his catchphrase ‘Get down Shep!’ Noakes sadly passed away at the age of 83 on 28 May 2017.
