Bacon's television break was as a presenter on the children's show Blue Peter, which he joined on 21 February 1997. He presented alongside Romana D'Annunzio, Katy Hill, Konnie Huq and Stuart Miles. On 19 October 1998 he was the programme's first-ever presenter to have his contract terminated in mid-season, after the tabloid newspaper News of the World published a report of Bacon taking cocaine and cannabis. His tenure on the programme lasted just over 18 months. After his dismissal, the then Head of BBC children's programmes Lorraine Heggessey went on air to explain the situation to CBBC viewers.
