susan’s prodigies have their say...
brainy brother Fabio
Interests: Reading, playing guitar
‘i wanted to take part to see how much i could do and to push myself,’ Fabio explains. ‘the competition was exciting, because the camera was always watching us and i felt confident. i liked richard Osman because he was very funny, enthusiastic and really tall.’
sporty sister olivia
Interests: Running, football, swimming
‘i wanted to show that sporty people can also be smart,’ says Olivia. ‘the competition was really for Fabio, because he’s more academic, but i knew i would enjoy it. mum has helped us since we were really young and i wouldn’t have got anywhere with my football or running without her – we definitely wouldn’t be on Child Genius.’
