A one-off special to celebrate the show's 30th anniversary, titled The Prince of Pontypandy, will see a Prince visit Fireman Sam's hometown of Pontypandy on a royal visit, and ultimately save the day by flying a helicopter.

The makers of the show have confirmed that the episode will feature "a certain little Royal fan" in a nod to Prince George's love of the show, which Prince William revealed on Radio 1 back in April. At the time, he said: "Fireman Sam has taken an awful lot of interest." Kate, meanwhile, has revealed that her little boy is a fan of helicopters, according to a mum-of-two who chatted to her at an official engagement. She said: "[Kate] was asking about what Jacob liked and he said he liked aeroplanes and she was asking if he'd seen a Spitfire and we said we liked going to the Science Museum and RAF museum. She was saying how George likes helicopters, she was saying about the top floor of the Science Museum where the helicopters are."

Prince William has also previously spoken about his son's favourite films, saying: "He quite likes The Lion King. He's watched that a few times. We've watched Octonauts several times. He has watched some Lego movies as well, so he's watched a lot of things like that,." He added: "Trying to keep him off the television is hard work – not too much TV." Speaking about the 30th anniversary Fireman Sam special, senior producer Ian McCue told the BBC: "Fireman Sam has been enjoyed by generations over the past 30 years and is a true icon of children’s television around the world. We can't wait for fans to see the special royal episode and the new series which will be out next year."
