A NEW episode of a popular kids' TV show is set to pay homage to Somerset's most iconic music festival.

CBeebies cartoon Hey Duggee will premiere its new episode, dubbed 'The Carrot Badge' on Friday, June 28, with a nod to Glastonbury Festival, based at Worthy Farm in Pilton.

It will be the first episode of a much anticipated fifth series of the cherished show, which has won seven BAFTAs and become an international Emmy award winner since debuting in 2014.A glimpse of the episode entitled 'The Carrot Badge'.A glimpse of the episode entitled 'The Carrot Badge'.

A spokesperson for the BBC said: "The episode features the Rabbits busy preparing for the Carrot Solstice, the day when the sun is at its highest and they gather round Carrot Henge to celebrate the glory of this humble vegetable.

"Trouble is, the Rabbits need to go and get ready for the festivities – but who will look after the carrots?

"The Squirrels volunteer, and off the Rabbits go. Then, disaster strikes. Worm pops up and eats part of Carrot Henge.It will kick off the fifth season of the successful kids show.It will kick off the fifth season of the successful kids show. (Image: BBC)

"Will Duggee fix the Henge in time, or will Carrot Solstice be ruined?"

Liz Randall, Hey Duggee Executive Producer at BBC Studios, said: “We are very proud and thrilled to present this very special new episode of Hey Duggee just after the Summer Solstice and alongside Glastonbury Festival.

"This is such a fun way for parents to introduce these events to their children and for fans to celebrate the summer with Duggee and the Squirrels!”
