Bob the Builder is going to have to watch his step in the future, with the arrival of Eddie the Engineer. Eddie made his first public appearance alongside Bob at the recent Construction Careers Event in London, where naming Eddie raised over £300 for Comic Relief. The pair proved to be such an instant smash that they are now offering themselves for hire at £50 an appearance (all money to charity). To hire Bob or Eddie, contact Eddie's creator, ICE public relations manager Shona Cooper, on (020) 7665 2150.
