About this deal

During his time on the children's show, Neil was known for his clean shaven look and iconic red jumper that he always wore. While Neil did not make a Big Art Attack on the day, he revealed that he is hoping to bring back the Art Attack gallery to display the work that children create on board their flights.

On top of being a successful TV personality and rockstar, he married artist and musician Nicola Buchanan in 1989 after having met through their band, as Nicola was a member of Marseilles behind the scenes after forming it in Liverpool in 1976. Then there is a very odd sequence where there is a piece of card with some dance steps on it which Neil starts to rearrange which makes some dancers contort as they try to continue to follow the moves that have now been changed before they explode in a big pile of paint. Neil created some really great artwork over the years and his entertaining style encouraged you to want to follow his “try it yourself” catchphrase.I’ve never really seen anything like it, maybe it would have got on to the screen in those days if it was going to be on BBC2 or Channel 4 at around 11pm, but there is no way that this surreal style could have been suitable for CITV viewers. Art Attack always insisted that it was “the big art show” and the idea was to “give your eyeballs a shock”, doing creative and fun things with a wide variety of material.

Art Attack star Neil Buchanan is unrecognisable more than 30 years after the creative show made its TV debut.When it did come to the screen it was as a much more straightforward art show, although there was a slight streak of oddness with the Head character. Back to America, and Neil along with the team are all working hard to make sure that the big Art Attack will all go to plan. Neil revealed that despite only being a five-minute segment in the show, the Big Art Attacks took an entire day to film. Doctor Who star Sophie Aldred also played Minnie Magic in the series, alongside characters including Daisy Dare and Cuthbert Lily. The Art Attack studio was undoubtedly one of the most colourful, exciting and gigantic sets on TV – and every viewer certainly wanted to get their hands on a giant pencil or painting palette of their own.

The segment saw Neil travel to different places across the country, and use objects including hosepipes, blankets, bin bags, hooks and anything that was nearby to create gigantic pieces of art. You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice.I decided to watch this as I was interested in how it all started and I presumed it would be very familiar to the version that started on CITV in 1990.

A 1992 episode of Art Attack was repeated as part of the CITV Old Skool Weekend and lots of people still fondly remember the show. Neil, 66, hosted a whopping 19 series of Art Attack before it came to an end in 2007, after 17 years on ITV screens. They explained that the theory was given credibility by the fact that Buchanan, like Banksy, is a musician - a former member of heavy metal band Marseille - and “art has followed in cities of shows he’s done allegedly”.Some of the technologies we use are necessary for critical functions like security and site integrity, account authentication, security and privacy preferences, internal site usage and maintenance data, and to make the site work correctly for browsing and transactions.
