We are extremely excited to reveal that the Sticky Toffee PR team is currently filming for a forthcoming episode of Channel 5′s flagship TV program The Gadget Show.

Each week on the Gadget Show, the team test, punish and push every conceivable type of technology to the limit – facing challenges as varied a designing a flying machine, making their own special effects laden movie and racing across the Abu Dhabi desert. The team scour the globe for the latest and most breath-taking new tech from autonomous humanoid robots to personal submarines, as well as giving clear definitive advice on the best gadgets to buy from digital cameras to vacuum cleaners.

The programme currently receives an average of one million viewers per episode, approximately half a million unique users to the website each week and the show is sold to well over 100 countries worldwide via Discovery Science.

The Gadget Show has set itself a challenge as part of the 10 year anniversary special. Presenters Jason, Amy and Ortis come together to see if they can produce and release a Top 40 hit using consumer grade music making tech. They’ll work together to find the most affordable pieces of music making technology from apps to hardware before researching the secrets of composing a musical masterpiece. After meeting an industry expert, they finalize their song before uploading it to iTunes and other platforms for release – aiming for the magical 8,000 downloads it normally takes to hit the Top 40 songs sold in the UK each week. All proceeds from this will go straight to music charity Nordoff Robins.

We are very excited to announce that The Gadget Show have drafted in Sticky Toffee PR to co-ordinate the official PR campaign for the single, which is due for release shortly. We look forward to playing a key role in helping Jason, Amy and Ortis reach their goal and raising funds for a great charity in the process!
