There are some new faces on the sofa, alongside six-year-old Molly and her eight-year-old brother William, who both love helping out on the family farm; friends Stephanie and Christina - Stephanie loves Justin Bieber while Christina prefers classical music; and schoolmates Jacob and Connor, who are in the Mini Enterprise Club together.
