Lizo joins Genevieve to reminisce about the 10 years he presented the BBC children's news programme. He talks about covering terror attacks, pantomime cow conventions - and the time Newsround banned Harry Potter star Rupert Grint from its website...

He also reveals why he left the show, how its legacy still helps him out today with his current job and why entertainment and arts news isn't just fluffy nonsense.
