You're live with Newsround on CBBC for the next five minutes.

:00:00.:00:07.

How virtual reality could help kids in hospital.

:00:08.:00:14.

And otter-ly adorable - the pups learning to swim.

:00:15.:00:26.

First, helicopters and planes are working hard to put out

:00:27.:00:29.

a huge wildfire just outside the New Zealand city

:00:30.:00:32.

Two separate fires that started in the hills on Monday have merged.

:00:33.:00:37.

Hundreds of homes have been evacuated.

:00:38.:00:39.

Some of them have burned down, but luckily

:00:40.:00:41.

There's a thick layer of smoke sitting over the city and officials

:00:42.:00:46.

think it could take weeks to get things back to normal.

:00:47.:00:54.

This fire has to be got under control, it will take weeks because

:00:55.:01:02.

it is going to smoulder, there will be outbreaks from time to time, the

:01:03.:01:06.

win could change well be speaking and that would make a difference.

:01:07.:01:08.

Also today, we're talking about virtual reality - or VR.

:01:09.:01:11.

While for some people it's the future of gaming,

:01:12.:01:13.

others are finding different uses for it, such as helping kids

:01:14.:01:16.

who need to go into hospital for special scans to relax.

:01:17.:01:18.

Ten-year-old Matthew is back in hospital.

:01:19.:01:22.

In September 2014, I suffered from extreme hydrocephalus,

:01:23.:01:25.

which means a build-up of fluid in the brain.

:01:26.:01:28.

The op was a success and to help him recover,

:01:29.:01:36.

he has to have regular brain scans to check that all is good.

:01:37.:01:46.

Being in ascanning machine can be quite a scary experience

:01:47.:01:48.

The scan itself can take up to an hour.

:01:49.:01:53.

You have to stay incredibly still in a small space and once

:01:54.:01:56.

the scanner actually starts, it's incredibly loud.

:01:57.:01:57.

Is everything OK in there, Matthew? Yeah, all fine.

:01:58.:02:00.

Now, I feel OK because I have had it a few times now.

:02:01.:02:05.

The first time I remember, I was thinking to myself,

:02:06.:02:10.

Because no-one had showed me it but in the end,

:02:11.:02:15.

MRIs can help doctors find out if a person has any problems

:02:16.:02:27.

using strong magnets and radio waves producing detailed images

:02:28.:02:29.

Experts at Kings College Hospital have come up with a way to prepare

:02:30.:02:38.

children by copying an MRI scan with this app

:02:39.:02:40.

Matthew is one of the kids helping the doctors

:02:41.:02:46.

This is the MRI scan we are going to use today.

:02:47.:02:50.

The app uses panoramic 360-degree videos, taken inside the scanner,

:02:51.:02:55.

giving the complete MRI experience of the scan.

:02:56.:03:00.

I was really interested in virtual reality.

:03:01.:03:05.

I had a 360-degree camera for Christmas and I thought

:03:06.:03:08.

maybe I can take some images from inside the scanner to allow

:03:09.:03:11.

the child to experience a scan virtual reality beforehand

:03:12.:03:15.

to prepare them for the scan, so it is not so scary

:03:16.:03:18.

The best way to cope with it, I think, is to close your eyes.

:03:19.:03:25.

Hopefully, this app will really help and just don't worry about it.

:03:26.:03:36.

The premiere for new live action movie Beauty and the Beast

:03:37.:03:41.

We're heading there to speak to Emma Watson, who plays Belle,

:03:42.:03:45.

and lots of other actors who play the enchanted household items

:03:46.:03:48.

That got us thinking - if you had to be an enchanted

:03:49.:03:52.

object in your house, what would it be and why?

:03:53.:03:54.

Perhaps you'd be a teacup, like Chip, a clock, like Cogsworth,

:03:55.:03:57.

or maybe something else entirely, like a gadget, mirror or football.

:03:58.:04:01.

We want you to draw it for us, take a picture and send it in online -

:04:02.:04:05.

and we'll try and show some of them to the stars!

:04:06.:04:08.

Also online are these stunning images from

:04:09.:04:12.

Underwater Photographer of the Year - including these turtles in Spain,

:04:13.:04:15.

and this hungry humpback whale off the coast of South Africa.

:04:16.:04:19.

But it was this beautiful shot that took the top prize.

:04:20.:04:23.

The octopus might look like it's dancing, but it's actually hunting!

:04:24.:04:30.

Finally - we're staying in the water with some otter-ly cute creatures.

:04:31.:04:34.

These four pups at Newquay Zoo are learning how to swim.

:04:35.:04:37.

The Asian short-clawed otters are getting some lessons

:04:38.:04:39.

I think they're doing pretty swimmingly!

:04:40.:04:46.

Newsround's back on CBBC tomorrow morning at 7:40am with Ayshah.
