Hello and welcome to The One Show with Matt Baker. And Alex Jones.
Tonight we're joined by some great performers, starting with members
of our medal-winning male gymnastics squad.
CHEERING AND APPLAUSE Kristian, Dan and Sam. They are all
here with us. Lads, what a crazy time you've had. Sum up the last
week for us. As you said, I think crazy is the best word really.
We've got ushered from event to event, from interview to interview,
chaperoned from one thing to the next. It's literally been non-stop.
Yesterday I had a chance to see my family, my friends and girlfriend.
It is nice to get back to normality, and today I did more media, and
then down to London to do One Show. But I'm enjoying it. And it is a
strange bubble you've been living in. Very strange. We've been away
for a long time - five weeks now. Being part of the whole Olympic
experience, you almost forget the real world. Once you go back into
it, it's strange, like Kristian said, it's great to see your family,
your friends, and try and chill out a little bit. You are going to stay
with us this evening. We've got quite a cool guy will you be
sitting next to. Joining the boys on the sofa is the man who took
this song to the number one spot. # And they call it puppy love
# Oh I guess they'll never know # They'll never know
# How a young heart really feels # And that's why I love her so #
It can only be Donny Osmond! CHEERING AND APPLAUSE
That was really cool, guys. How are you? Nice to see you. Hey! Guys!
How are you, man. How you doing? Congratulations, guys. That is so
cool. The first time the gymnasts have won a medal since 1908? I
imagine watching that on television in 1908. It was amazing.
Congratulations guys. What did you think of our choir? Where were you
when I recorded it? They weren't even born! That was beautiful.
Thank you. Urban Voices Collective sang at the closing ceremony. You
must feel their pain, Donny, because you did the opening
ceremony. In 2002 in Salt Lake City. It is nerve-racking. You are
thinking I'm just about to sing and 3 billion people are watching me,
so yeah, you get a little nervous. Did you see any of our Games?
in love with Gaby Douglas. I thought Rowan Atkinson started it
perfectly, and Her Majesty jumping out of a helicopter. It was
actually her doing that, right? was! It is nice to have you with us.
Earlier this week the torch carried by Bradley Wiggins sold at auction
for �13,000. But if you want an Olympic memento without breaking
the bank, Lucy Seigle might have I've come to this unassuming
warehouse in the Docklands of Essex to try to get first dibs on my own
souvenir. I want to remember the Games for as long as possible.
Fortunately this warehouse has been filling up over the last six days
with all sorts of practical bits and pieces from the Olympic Village.
What's in here? Well, you don't get more practical than this. An
Olympic loo brush! Almost every fitting and piece of furniture from
the athletes' village will arrive here to be resold. Clipboards.
Luggage tags. Bolt cutters. Hello, I know you are very busy. I'm on a
limit budget, is there anything you can recommend for me. A couple of
cones over there if you fancy them. I'm going to have a look. A white
folding chair from the stadium, �7. Usain Bolt could have sat in that.
I defy anybody to walk through these warehouses without being
tempted to have a good rummage. Clock. Don't be late for that final.
Traffic wand, �3.95. So Paul, you are in charge here, what exactly is
going on? Before the Games, all the goods came in, and after the Games,
it is all coming back. From the crack of dawn the lorries start
coming in. Everything here is far sale. It's all going to the public
on our website and then we've got a lot of products suitable for the
trade. How jigant sick this project? We've sold -- how jigantic
is this project? We've sold 6,500 beanbags. Is there anything that's
come in and you thought, that is not going to sell? When I saw
filing cabinets and chairs going to the United States and people
screaming on help lines because they want more, I'm not as
concerned as I was. Ceremonial flags and signed shirts are all
very well, but I'm very happy with my �4.95 Olympic loo brush. Every
time I see this I'm going to be reminded of those two fabulous
weeks in the summer of 2012. That is sick and wrong. That toilet
brush? Who would want to buy a toilet brush? It depends on whose
title... I have bought you something from the sale. Alex?
is amazing. It is from the American apartment. I'm scared. It is a bed-
side lamp. Plaus laws -- APPLAUSE Is it guaranteed? Yes. How am I
going to plug that in in the US? And you guarantee this is from the
Olympics? Will I be a Beth athlete? Ask these lads. Do you recognise
any of the things in the film? but I don't think anybody would
want to buy things from our apartment. Were you all together?
What was the set-up? Me and Dan shared a room, and lieu hiss a room
to himself. Fairly cosy but we made it our home for the two weeks.
there a curfew? Did you have to have lights out at a special time?
It was alright, especially after the competition. But before the
competition it was quite strict. Where the beds comfortable? You can
buy the beds and everything. said there are long ones for the
basketball players. Yes, elongated. I could do with a dining table.
There's a desk on there. Is the stadium for sale? It is a home for
all the Osmonds. Lads, going into that team final, lots of people
wouldn't have predicted that you would be in with a shout of a
bronze. How did you feel? Did you go in thinking, we are going to
have a great time and see what comes of it or plan for a medal?
The main aim for us was to go in there. We made the team final and
that was a big success in itself. Of course. Our aim was to go in
there and have fun, tried not to push too much pressure on ourselves.
Just seeing you there Dan. You got round to fourth piece. This was the
last piece. It was you against the lads on rings as well. Incredible
how you managed to hold your composure. Watching it on TV as
well, when I got barks it was so exciting to see. I can't imagine
people watching it live. APPLAUSE We can just hear some of your fans.
Would you like to see me doing due that right now? We would love to.
don't think so! It would be the last thing I ever do. Today is A-
level results day. We hope you all had what you want. Boys, how did
you balance being a gymnast with school life, because gymnasts start
young traditionally. My school were good with me, allowed me to have
time off when I needed it if I had to go abroad for competitions. I
used to train in the morning before school, so would turn up a bit late
new and then. But they were fine with it. They allowed me to catch
up on the work I did miss. I think if you want to get good, be good at
sport. You do know anyone with results today? A couple of mates.
Did they do well? If not, they'll be at the bar. Fingers crossed. You
can relive part of the closing ceremony at the end of the show.
Earlier today the High Court rejected a plea by Tony Nicklinson,
who suffers from locked-in syndrome. Tony is trapped inside his
paralysed body and he wanted a doctor to be able to end his life
without fear of prosecution. There is no chance of Tony getting better,
but some with locked-in syndrome can recover. Dr Sarah Jarvis meets
a man at the start of a very long journey.
Eyes can say a lot. A lock, an expression, eye contact. They are
all vital to the way we express ourselves. But what if your eyes
were the only way you could communicate? On the 9th August 2010,
Mark Ellis became a father. When his wife Amy gave birth to their
daughter, lola. He was 22, newly married, happy, and healthy. But
just two weeks later he had become even more helpless than his newborn
child. Mark suffered a massive stroke. He was alive and his brain
as alert as ever, but he was completely paralysed. Mark had
locked-in syndrome. Trapped in his own body, he was able only to move
his eyes. Locked-in syndrome is a sin droll normally caused bay
stroke, where an area at the base of the brain is damaged. The rest
of the brain, the thinking part of the brain, remains intact. So the
patient is in the terrible situation that they are unable to
move, unable to communicate, but able to think normally and
understand what people are saying to them. I could see in his eyes
that Mark was still there. Amy was right. Mark was fully aware, but
the future looked bleak. Most locked-in syndrome patients will
die. But two years on Mark is out of hospital and at home. He and Amy
realised they had a secret weapon - their daughter, lola. As she
developed, Mark could follow her lead. Lola the baby became Lola the
teacher. A speech therapist suggested that because Lola started
to speak Mark followed the noises to bring on his speech. Did that
help? Did it feel odd making the same noises as Lola? Strange to
hear your own voice. Mark's head, he is still speaking the same.
about their walking? Lola was just toddling. Mark was walking with his
frame, taking small steps. We had a joke, who was going to be first to
walk? Do you see how far you have come? You still look at your life
as before. Neither of us would have done it
without lolla. She's so funny. She is.
Mark and Amy have taken inspiration from the remarkable story of mother
of three Kate Allatt. A stroke left her locked in three years ago. She
was told she would never walk or talk again. It made me come out
fighting. I thought, damn the lot of you, you have written me off.
They established I could understand, one blink for no and two for yes. I
was ecstatic. I mean, I can't describe it. It was like, thank God
you know I'm in here. Kate has gone on to make an astonishing recovery.
Now an author, she deadcates herself to inspiring and helping
others in similar situations, and campaigning for better
rehabilitation care for strokes patients. This very notion that
patients plateau or don't make any more progress is in my opinion not
true, because plateau means the money runs out to help you get
before. Doctors should absolutely spell out, this is the worst-case
scenario, however, I'm an example. I know around the world hundreds of
examples of people who've survived. It is changing people's attitudes,
because we are still the same inside.
Back in Derbyshire Mark and Amy's secret weapon, Lola, continues to
inspire her dad. But the family realities they still have a long,
difficult road ahead. Every day is a struggle. Every day is a battle.
You've just got to take every day as it comes, as hard as it is.
Never give up. Never think, "I can't do it." Because you can do it,
What a story. That lady is such an inspiration to be able to overcome
such adversity, what inspiration. Thank you for a player that.
Sometimes we take things for granted, quite a bit we take things
for granted. Just the fact we can sit here and talk. People cannot do
that with locked in syndrome, they blink. So speaking of health, you
are looking good. Raring to go for your new tour? Before we talk about
that, I have been looking forward to doing the show. I tweeted about
this a couple of hours ago. Did you see it? This is what I said.
Looking forward to being on the show with Miss Alex Jones and Matt
Baker. We go live at 7pm at the BBC One show. This is what I got back
from Maggie Benabbad. Matt does not have a Twitter account any more.
Maybe you can persuade him to open a new one. He is an ADF will start
a while, there we go. I put the idiot part in their. -- he is an
idiot.. It is 2012. Let's talk about the tour. We are opening up
at the O2 Arena. It will be the first time I have performed in
London for a long time. We are bringing our Las Vegas show and a
whole lot more to the UK. I can hardly wait. There is definitely a
bars. Is it a scaled-down version of Las Vegas? You have won best
performer, you beat Celine Dion. Yes, it was awarded the best show
in Las Vegas for 2012. What we Abba winning here is not a scaled-down
version, it is an upscale version, we are bringing the lot. You did
the show in Las Vegas for four years. Six shows a week. Where does
the stamina come from? I have no idea. I wonder how I get through it
every night because I'd rip with sweat, all the dancing. We do not
just get up there and sing songs in front of a microphone. We leave it
all on the stage. You have been doing this since a young age. Has
your inspiration and energy changed throughout your life? Mike outlook
on the business has changed. At first I was a five-year-old kid
having a good time and I had no idea how many people were watching
on television. Then I did Puppy Love and I loved the screaming.
Then reinventing myself and coming back later on. Now it is all about
picking and choosing the fun things because I am celebrating 50 years
in the business. It is not like I want to keep climbing that ladder
because I have to climb the ladder, I want to do things that are fun.
We are going to do this because it is going to be so much fun. I work
hard, but I love it. It is great view and Marie are back together,
but is there a chance the whole family will come back? No. Why do
you say that? A lot of them cannot perform any more so the 2008-we did
hear was the last one. That was the last one. You have just become a
grandfather for the 4th time. We saw that on Twitter as well. Yes.
Matt doesn't know this stuff. He is not connected. Get with it, Matt.
Follow me on Twitter, gets an account. I have been there and done
that. What kind of grandfather are you. I guess I am a fan grandfather.
I act like one of the kids. My wife and I have had five children, but
she has raised six because I act like a kid around the house. It is
hard for me to see that I'm a grandfather. I act like I am in my
twenties on stage. Interestingly, you did not push your children in
the way that your dad pushed you. Well, I will not say my dad pushed
me. When I was 12, 13, I made a conscious effort, this is what I
want to do. Up until then it was dance in front of the Mirror, make
it better. But I did say I wanted to do that for the rest of my life.
It is incredible you decided to do that at that age. When you have got
lots of girls screaming, it is an easy decision. My family from Wales
have come to see you, we have got people outside who have come to see
you. I have got some of the most loyal fans. Straight after lunch
today they were out there. But the demographics have changed so much.
Younger kids are starting to realise who I am. On Strictly Come
Dancing this little kid came to Las Vegas to see us perform. He was in
the queue waiting to meet me and his excitement was growing. He
wanted to shake the champion's hand. I grabbed his hand and he looked at
me and he said, I did not know you could sing as well! You can see
Doney and very on tour in the UK from January. Another group who
defined the 70s, the Rolling Stones are up there with the Olympics of
having one of the most recognisable logos around. How did one of the
world's biggest bans become one of the world's biggest brands? Carrie
Grant has the story. Music is big business. Today's
artists need talent, but almost as important a need a whole team of
accountants and merchandising experts. If they get to the very
top, that is when they transform into something truly gigantic. When
bans have become brands, there is only one that can claim to have
become the first and the biggest. This logo has been with us for more
than 40 years. Since 1971, it has appeared on every single album
artwork and it is so simple and distinctive and it has become one
of the most recognisable brand images in the world. I thought the
logo was based on that mouth and those lips, but there is more to
the story than that. John is the man who designed it. He was still
at art college when he was given the opportunity to work with the
Rolling Stones. They phoned the college and asked them to send a
student around to talk to Mick Jagger about their European tour
poster. I went into a meeting room and there was Mick Jagger. Were you
nervous? Very. Mick Jagger loved the poster design and he was so
impressed he asked him to look at another smaller project. I was
invited back about the logo which was going to be small, it may be
used for a letter heads. It was not a huge deal at the time. Mick
Jagger showed me a picture of an Indian goddess and said, I like
this. She is the goddess of time and change and you only have to
look at her for a few seconds to see where he got his inspiration
from. I thought this was Mick Jagger. That is part of it, but the
main reason I chose this is because it was the symbol for protest and
anti- authority. I thought it would work for the Rolling Stones.
logo became part of popular culture almost immediately. Was it a fluke,
or is it really that brilliant a design? John had just graduated
from the Royal College of Art when he designed the logo and the tutors
here are still the experts. What is it about this that makes it work?
It is a sharp piece of graphic design which means you can use it
anywhere. But it also says something about the kind of
lifestyle and the image. Were the Rolling Stones the first band to
brand themselves? Even the Beatles had a distinctive way of
typesetting their name, but what the Rolling Stones did his they
understood a long time ago that merchandise, the stuff you sell in
the stadiums, make as much money, if not more money, than the records.
Merchandising has sent the low go global. It is not just the Rolling
Stones to have flaunted the tongue and the lips, it is just as well.
But the original letter John got confirming that they were hiring
him, gave no hint of how huge it would become. We have asked you to
create a logo or symbol which may be used on notepaper or on an arm
uncover or a cover for the Press book. What was your feet? It was 50
Guineas. But John has recently managed to earn a tidy sum or by
selling the original artwork to the Victoria and Albert Museum. He is
also able to make five or original pieces baked on the label. This is
just as fresh today as it was in 1971 and it captures everything
people of about the Rolling Stones. If you want an example of the
perfect logo, look no further than this. That story was not accurate.
Why? The way they came up with the logo with the tongue as if it was
going up, they were listening to a Marie Osmond album! Behave yourself.
It was either that are a Donny Osmond album. Look at all this.
This is original merchandise from the 70s. I never knew some of this
existed. This is great. It is a little karaoke machine. You say you
did not realise a lot of this existed, but did any of it go
through you as a family were you said, I do not like this, do not do
this. No, somebody made a lot of money out of the brand. It was not
until eBay came out that I realised how much was out there. What do you
feel about it? Do you have any of this at home? It is OK now, but
there was a time in my life when I thought it was damaging a brand.
grand daughter would love that. do not think so. Talking of
damaging the brand, in the late 80s, even Michael Jackson said that your
name was poison. That is right, I asked him. I asked him how I got
back onto the tracks. He had gone into superstardom. I said, how do
you do it? He said, changing your name. He was quite right. When I
came out with a song under a different label, nobody knew it was
me. Some stations did not want to admit they were playing Donny
Osmond music because it was seen as goody goody. So I had to reinvent
myself with the Soldier of Love. And you have gone back to that nice
image now. I am who I am. I enjoy my career, I love my life, I love
what I do. I have been doing it for 50 years. That tour that is coming
up, I can hardly wait to launch this tour because it is going to be
so much fan. I cannot wait until January. We want to remind you that
at 8 o'clock this evening on BBC One you can see our award handed
out at the first ever BBC 999 Awards. Hours celebrates members of
the public's quick-thinking in emergency situations and it is part
of a larger celebration of the servicemen and women who risk their
lives every day. Dad used so much. And Matt is going to get a Twitter
account and follow me. We promised you a bit more of the closing
ceremony. Here are the urban voice is collected with the song they
