Abstract: In contrast to the behavior of best uniform polynomial approximants on $ [0,1]$ we show that if $ f \in C[0,1]$ there exists a sequence of polynomials $ \{ {P_n}\} $ of respective degree $ \leq n$ which converges uniformly to $ f$ on $ [0,1]$ and geometrically fast at each point of $ [0,1]$ where $ f$ is analytic. Moreover we describe the best possible rates of convergence at all regular points for such a sequence.
