The battle for the attention of restless children and hung-over students is about to intensify with a fundamental shake-up of the Saturday morning television schedules. Stung by the loss of its traditional place as the channel of choice at the start of the weekend, the BBC today launches a counterattack against ITV's Ant and Dec with a "sexier, sassier" show fronted by former "wild child" Dani Behr. But ITV has a secret weapon: it is understood that the broadcaster is lining up Big Brother winner Brian Dowling to replace the Geordie duo, when they leave to front a revamped version of their Saturday night entertainment show that premiered to disappointing reviews earlier this year. If the gay former Ryanair steward does take over at SM:tv, it would mark a step change - many children's TV presenters have had to hide their sexuality, fearing that it would jeopardise their career. ITV targeted young adults as well as children with SM:tv, which is packed with cheeky comedy and multi-layered appeal.
