Children at a school in Bedford had a very special visitor to help them with their Friday fitness.

Mr Motivator paid a virtual visit to Cranfield Academy to get staff, children and their families up and moving.

Teachers at the school have been holding an activity day to reward pupils for their efforts over the past months.

Children of key workers were able to workout together, while other pupils were able to join in at home, including thousands of children from five different schools.

Mr Motivator stepped up to help with the youngsters' physical and mental health, and to help them have plenty of fun!

Here's what the children at Cranfield thought of their visitor:
