One experiment saw Dr Zoe show Phil and Holly an experiment using propane gas to set fire to their own hands.

After demonstrating, Holly asked Dr Zoe: “Oh my God. Did that hurt?”

Keen to test it herself, Dr Zoe squirted some bubbles onto Holly’s hand, and Phil set fire to it.

Jumping and screaming as the flames ignited then quickly extinguished, she said: “Okay it was fine, it was fine, it was fine. It’s exhilarating.”
