Need a British daytime TV show

Silly idea for a scene in a story I'm writing: Post Thor - The Dark World Thor is living with Jane in London and naturally has attracted considerable media attention. And occasionally gets invited onto daytime TV shows...

So I'm looking for a British (preferably London-based) show that would be appropriate for someone who doesn't really know much about Earth politics or current affairs, society in general, quiz topics, etc. etc., hasn't yet learned to drive (which lets out Top Gear), and is so ridiculously powerful that it makes no sense having him on any sort of competitive athletic / sports thing.

I'm vaguely thinking one of the judges on some sort of food and drink show - his idea of portion size might be interesting - or something of the sort, possibly Blue Peter (though that isn't made in London any more) or another kid's show, or something else where his personal presence etc. would be enough to make entertaining TV.

The snag is that I don't watch daytime TV at all and have no idea what shows would fit.

Any suggestions?

later - just thought of a good way to use Blue Peter as the show, so that's what it will be.

My demigod appeared on Blue Peter and all they gave him was this lousy badge...

One of the things about Blue Peter is their system of badges, presented to anyone who appears on the show or contributes in various other ways.

So... in my current story Thor will appear on the show, in an item that relates slightly to nature, but of course also talking about Manhattan, Greenwich, his implausibly large hammer, etc. etc.

Poll #1974139 So which badge does Thor get on Blue Peter?

Which badge should Thor be given if he appears on Blue Peter?

Standard Blue badge, for everyone who appears on the show
3(21.4%)
Green badges, for contributions with a conservation, nature or environmental theme
2(14.3%)
Gold badges, the most rarely awarded, for exceptional achievement
5(35.7%)
One of the other badges - please say why
0(0.0%)
None of them - Badges promote an elitist mentality
