BBC Magazines is expanding its portfolio with the launch of Something Special this spring.

Based on the hit Cbeebies programme starring Justin Fletcher MBE and his alter-ego Mr Tumble, the four-weekly magazine will arrive in April, priced at £2.99.

The title will closely reflect the content of the programme, with readers being able to go 'out and about' with Justin, looking at photographs from the real world, while there is also comic content with Mr Tumble.

Each issue will also come with a free gift and stickers, while there will be competitions to win exclusive signed products.

"We wanted to understand exactly what our readers need from their magazine," explained editor Sara Oldham. "I'm happy to say that Something Special magazine has been shaped as much by its readers as by its expert editorial team."
