Coming up on today's all-new Blue Peter...

4:56:024:56:04

He's the canine talk of the town,

4:56:044:56:07

so we sent our very own Barney the dog to meet him.

4:56:074:56:09

The skateboarding star off The Artist, Uggie the Jack Russell.

4:56:104:56:15

If you're struggling with the freezing temperatures, have no fear.

4:56:164:56:20

We've got some great ideas to warm you up.

4:56:204:56:23

Join me as I climb one of the tallest and most incredible structures.

4:56:244:56:28

You never really get a sense of its size

4:56:284:56:30

until you are at the top looking down.

4:56:304:56:33

Plus BRIT nominated pop sensation Pixie Lott is here to help me

4:56:334:56:37

present the show and she'll be taking your calls live later on.

4:56:374:56:40

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

4:56:574:57:00

Thanks very much. Welcome to Blue Peter.

4:57:024:57:06

It's live, a jam-packed show.

4:57:064:57:07

As Helen is still on her way back from the South Pole,

4:57:074:57:10

we have persuaded someone very special to help me hold the fort.

4:57:104:57:14

Actress, pop star and now Blue Peter presenter, the brilliant Pixie Lott.

4:57:144:57:19

With three number-one singles. over a million album sales and a staggering

4:57:204:57:26

four BRIT nominations under her belt, she is seriously hot pop property.

4:57:264:57:31

Having collaborated with stars like Tinchy Stryder and Wretch 32,

4:57:314:57:35

I'm proud to say, she's agreed to collaborate with me.

4:57:354:57:38

Give her a massive round of applause, it's Pixie Lott, everybody.

4:57:404:57:43

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

4:57:434:57:46

-Hi! How are you doing?

-I'm good.

-Welcome to the show.

4:57:484:57:52

-Thank you.

-This is the second time you've been on.

4:57:524:57:54

You performed before, but now you are helping present,

4:57:544:57:57

you're doing something different,

4:57:574:57:58

which means you get your very own silver Blue Peter badge.

4:57:584:58:02

How exciting. Thank you. Beautiful.

4:58:024:58:05

Someone else who was on show

4:58:054:58:06

who we are big fans of is Ed Sheeran, who you know very well.

4:58:064:58:10

You are up against him in the BRITs, how does that feel?

4:58:104:58:13

It is such an exciting night, the BRITS, I always have loads of fun.

4:58:134:58:18

It's great to be included in a category with Ed.

4:58:184:58:21

So many great people up for it, so we will have to see on the night.

4:58:214:58:24

It will be loads of fun.

4:58:244:58:25

It's a real talent fest this year, isn't it? He may win Best Female.

4:58:254:58:29

If you are a Pixie fan

4:58:294:58:30

and you want to send a message, e-mail it to us now?

4:58:304:58:33

We'll get some of the best on screen later in the show.

4:58:334:58:35

Right, I've done my bit. Time for you to present.

4:58:354:58:37

Have you heard about the Hollywood film, The Artist,

4:58:374:58:41

that's set to dominate the Oscars?

4:58:414:58:43

It's unusual because it's in black and white and a silent film,

4:58:434:58:46

but there is one actor who doesn't need words to steal every scene.

4:58:464:58:51

He's hairy, slobbers a lot and walks on four legs,

4:58:514:58:54

so we sent our very own Barney the dog to meet him.

4:58:544:58:56

And it seems that Barney has finally found his voice.

4:58:564:58:59

Hello! I'm Barney. Let's face it I'm the real star of Blue Peter.

4:59:054:59:09

From the minute I arrive at work, I'm treated like a celebrity.

4:59:104:59:15

Before every show, I am groomed and pampered

4:59:154:59:18

in my very own dressing room.

4:59:184:59:20

I truly am King of the Studio!

4:59:204:59:23

But whenever I get tired of the adoring humans,

4:59:244:59:26

I like to mix with some of my own kind, too.

4:59:264:59:29

Today, I'm meeting a canine whose even more famous than I am.

4:59:374:59:40

Can you believe it?!

4:59:404:59:42

Uggie, the Jack Russell, is getting rave reviews in Oscar-nominated

4:59:424:59:47

silent film, The Artist.

4:59:474:59:50

He has starred in Water For Elephants with RPattz

4:59:504:59:53

and the lovely Reese Witherspoon. Ow, ow, ow!

4:59:534:59:55

HE PANTS

4:59:554:59:57

Today, I am here to see first-hand that Uggie has more strings

4:59:575:00:02

to his bow than just acting.

5:00:025:00:04

Good to shake paws with you.

5:00:045:00:06

Thanks for finding the time to see me before I had back to the States.

5:00:065:00:11

I hear you have got an amazing talent you want to show off.

5:00:115:00:14

A classic American sport, I will be showing off my skateboarding skills.

5:00:145:00:19

Fantastic, take it away, Uggie.

5:00:195:00:22

As he shows off his moves, I get the low-down from his human,

5:00:315:00:36

on just how much this four-legged fellow loves to roll on four wheels.

5:00:365:00:40

Omar, how did Uggie get into skateboarding?

5:00:425:00:46

I had another dog, he used to skateboard all the time.

5:00:465:00:49

So Uggie would be watching him and then I got him on a skateboard,

5:00:495:00:53

we got him on top of it and he just loved it.

5:00:535:00:57

-He has been skating ever since.

-Sweet.

5:00:575:00:59

So, how often does he practice?

5:00:595:01:01

About four times a week. When he was younger, he practised every day.

5:01:015:01:06

It is something he really likes and gets a lot of exercise.

5:01:065:01:10

He used to do all kinds of ramps.

5:01:105:01:12

Ramps? Amazing! What's the best trick he can do?

5:01:125:01:17

He likes to skateboard on his hind legs.

5:01:175:01:20

He was watching me skateboard one day and said he wanted to do it like me.

5:01:205:01:23

I said, "no way". He tried it - and he did it.

5:01:235:01:28

Thanks for chatting to me, Omar.

5:01:285:01:30

Barney, fancy giving it a go yourself?

5:01:305:01:34

I'm always up for trying something new, why not?

5:01:345:01:37

Why is it moving? What's this?

5:01:395:01:42

It's a skateboard, dude, get on it.

5:01:425:01:45

Hold on, I don't get it.

5:01:455:01:48

Fine, I'll send Omar in.

5:01:485:01:50

I'm not sure about this.

5:01:525:01:54

Get on it.

5:01:545:01:55

-How? I'm a dog.

-Just get on it.

5:01:555:01:58

No. It's not for me.

5:01:585:02:00

Ugh... Amateurs.

5:02:005:02:03

You made it look easy, but I couldn't even get on.

5:02:035:02:07

Like anything in life, it is just practice and confidence.

5:02:075:02:12

Thanks for taking time out of your busy schedule to meet us today.

5:02:125:02:15

Awesome to meet you.

5:02:155:02:17

Good luck with the film.

5:02:175:02:18

Next time you arrange something like this, make sure the dog

5:02:185:02:22

has some basic training. I look like the worst teacher in the world.

5:02:225:02:26

Sorry, buddy, it won't happen again.

5:02:265:02:29

What a doggy diva.

5:02:295:02:31

I think he's allowed to be a diva, that is one talented pup right there.

5:02:335:02:38

-And Barney's so cute.

-Thanks very much.

5:02:385:02:41

I was talking about the dog.

5:02:415:02:43

In four weeks' time,

5:02:435:02:44

we'll announce the winner of the Blue Peter Book Awards,

5:02:445:02:47

but we have a new category for a special one-off award

5:02:475:02:50

and we would like your help to decide who takes the prize.

5:02:505:02:53

We know lots of you love reading...

5:02:545:02:56

..on winter holidays...

5:02:575:03:00

..on summer holidays...

5:03:025:03:03

..at work, rest...and play.

5:03:065:03:12

CAMERA REPEATEDLY CLICKS

5:03:125:03:14

But with thousands of brilliant children's books available

5:03:145:03:18

we've been wondering which is the best.

5:03:185:03:22

So we're asking you to decide for us.

5:03:225:03:24

We've pulled together the top ten best-selling kids' books

5:03:265:03:30

from the last 10 years and we're giving you a chance

5:03:305:03:33

to vote for your favourite.

5:03:335:03:34

All you do is go to the Blue Peter website and click on the big link.

5:03:345:03:38

The vote closes at 4pm on February 23rd,

5:03:395:03:43

so make sure you cast yours before then.

5:03:435:03:45

I'm serious, it says they're not even brothers...

5:03:485:03:51

Sorry, I'll save that for later.

5:03:515:03:52

What's your book about?

5:03:525:03:54

I'm reading TV Presenting for Beginners.

5:03:545:03:57

-You don't need that!

-I'm learning a lot.

5:03:575:03:59

You're doing so well.

5:03:595:04:01

Make sure you stick around,

5:04:015:04:02

because there's loads more to come on today's show.

5:04:025:04:05

Pixie will be talking to some of you live on the show

5:04:055:04:08

and performing her new single.

5:04:085:04:11

Plus, Barney will be braving the height of one of

5:04:115:04:14

the tallest bridges in the UK.

5:04:145:04:17

We know Helen has been braving sub-zero temperatures in Antarctica,

5:04:175:04:21

but you've probably noticed the weather here has been getting cold.

5:04:215:04:25

Tonight is set to be as low as minus four in some places in the UK.

5:04:255:04:29

Earlier this week, Wiltshire in the south of England saw some snow.

5:04:295:04:33

To help see you through these chilly winter months

5:04:335:04:36

we decided to enlist the skills of top inventor Mark Champkins.

5:04:365:04:40

Here he is on Blue Peter last year when Helen set him his challenge.

5:04:405:04:44

Things are getting cold, a lot of our viewers

5:04:445:04:46

will be waiting at bus-stops, cold and bored.

5:04:465:04:49

-Can you create something for them?

-I'll do my best.

5:04:495:04:53

We asked Pollyanna Woodward from The Gadget Show

5:04:535:04:56

to catch up with Mark and find out

5:04:565:04:59

whether he'd risen to Helen's challenge.

5:04:595:05:01

The Science Museum in London,

5:05:045:05:06

home to some of the world's greatest innovations.

5:05:065:05:09

Ideas man Mark Champkins is the museum's resident inventor,

5:05:105:05:14

but has he managed to come up with any products to keep you warm

5:05:145:05:17

and stop you getting bored at the bus-stop this winter?

5:05:175:05:21

Mark, you've had a little while to think about the challenge,

5:05:225:05:27

-have you come up with many ideas?

-I have, lots of ideas, actually.

5:05:275:05:30

Winter problem number one -

5:05:305:05:32

do you love playing with your touch-screen phone,

5:05:325:05:35

but want keep your hands warm?

5:05:355:05:37

Here's Mark's solution - a pair gloves with easy access fingertips.

5:05:375:05:43

I have to get these on and give them a trial.

5:05:435:05:46

Look at that, that's great.

5:05:465:05:49

Pop your finger out if you need to pinch and zoom.

5:05:495:05:51

That's not all, Mark has invented a bonus feature for your bus pass.

5:05:545:06:00

A little transparent pocket on your glove,

5:06:005:06:02

so you don't need to root round in your bag to find it.

5:06:025:06:06

This will save me a good four or five minutes every time I use it.

5:06:065:06:11

Toasty.

5:06:115:06:14

Winter problem number two -

5:06:145:06:16

how do you choose between...

5:06:165:06:19

..cool tunes...

5:06:195:06:21

..and warm ears?

5:06:215:06:23

Mark's solution is woolly earmuffs, with inbuilt headphones.

5:06:235:06:29

They look very warm.

5:06:295:06:31

Yes, you can listen to your music and keep your ears warm.

5:06:315:06:35

But for perfect beats you need a perfect fit.

5:06:355:06:38

We'll scan your ear, so I can get a model on the laptop.

5:06:385:06:42

Mark places positioning targets all over Pollyanna's ear,

5:06:425:06:46

so the scanner can make a 3D map of her head.

5:06:465:06:49

The red laser bounces off her skin and into sensors in the scanner.

5:06:495:06:54

We've measured your ears, I know exactly where they are!

5:06:545:06:57

-And I've modelled them here.

-So when I put these on,

5:06:575:07:00

the positioning of the earphones will be on my ear.

5:07:005:07:03

Perfect. The world's first pair of perfectly-fitting earmuffs.

5:07:035:07:07

Winter problem number three -

5:07:075:07:09

have you ever been waiting for a bus to find it drives straight past you?

5:07:095:07:13

Mark's solution, a light-emitting ring,

5:07:135:07:16

so you can be spotted even on a dark winter morning.

5:07:165:07:19

-It lights up and the bus driver can see you're waiting.

-It glows!

5:07:195:07:24

I've done some stuff on my laptop and modelled it

5:07:245:07:26

and we can have it printed.

5:07:265:07:29

He's using a 3D printer, which piles up 947 layers of quick-drying resin.

5:07:295:07:33

Each layer is thinner than a human hair.

5:07:335:07:36

These are the two halves we made before.

5:07:375:07:39

This circuit is like a bike light, a little LED,

5:07:395:07:44

and this will shine through the top when you push the button.

5:07:445:07:48

This circuit should sit nicely in here.

5:07:485:07:51

Just snap that together, like that.

5:07:515:07:53

So, there you have it,

5:07:535:07:55

three brilliant new products to keep you warm

5:07:555:07:57

and entertained on those dark winter mornings.

5:07:575:08:00

Mark, these inventions are absolutely fantastic!

5:08:005:08:03

-You have cracked Helen's challenge.

-I hope so, thank you.

5:08:035:08:07

It's amazing how these solutions can come from

5:08:095:08:12

quite simple problems, but they're really effective.

5:08:125:08:14

These are the warmest headphones I've ever worn.

5:08:145:08:16

Music's rubbish, but it is not plugged in. What about your stuff?

5:08:165:08:19

Very beautiful. The bus pass

5:08:195:08:21

that just slips in there,

5:08:215:08:24

very cosy,

5:08:245:08:25

and this beautiful accessory here.

5:08:255:08:27

Yes, the Blue Peter light-up ring.

5:08:275:08:29

If we get the lights down, we can see.

5:08:295:08:31

This is supposed to attract the attention of the bus driver

5:08:315:08:34

while you wait at the bus-stop on dark, wintry mornings.

5:08:345:08:37

So cool, I love it. I wish I was an inventor.

5:08:375:08:40

And if it's still too cold to go outside, there's always loads

5:08:405:08:44

to keep you busy on the Blue Peter website.

5:09:275:09:31

Head over to the CBBC website and click on Blue Peter.

5:09:325:09:36

Hours of fun.

5:09:365:09:38

If you are constantly being asked to tidy your room

5:09:385:09:41

you may think it is the job that never ends.

5:09:415:09:43

If you are anything like me, it gets messy as fast as you tidy it.

5:09:435:09:46

I'm such a boy.

5:09:465:09:47

For over 100 years, the painters of the Forth Bridge in Scotland

5:09:475:09:51

had exactly the same feeling.

5:09:515:09:53

It is so large that, ever since it was built,

5:09:535:09:55

it has always had someone painting it.

5:09:555:09:58

But this year, for the first time, that's all changed.

5:09:585:10:01

5,000 workers risked their lives to build it.

5:10:045:10:07

It took seven years to complete.

5:10:105:10:12

But then came the real challenge -

5:10:155:10:18

painting its massive 1.5 mile expanse.

5:10:185:10:22

They said it was the job that would never end, but they were wrong.

5:10:225:10:27

This is the Forth Rail Bridge in Scotland,

5:10:275:10:29

and I am here to celebrate the scaffolding finally coming down

5:10:295:10:33

on the world's longest-running paint job.

5:10:335:10:36

As you can see, I am all kitted out. I have got my gloves,

5:10:365:10:39

safety goggles and high-visibility suit, all to make me completely safe,

5:10:395:10:43

because I am about to walk across

5:10:435:10:45

one of the biggest construction sites in the UK.

5:10:455:10:48

The Forth Rail Bridge was built across the Firth of Forth

5:10:495:10:52

in the late 1800s,

5:10:525:10:54

to connect the capital city of Edinburgh on the south side,

5:10:545:10:57

to Fife on the north side.

5:10:575:11:01

It spans the same length as 24 full-sized football pitches

5:11:015:11:05

and project manager John has been working on it for 12 years.

5:11:055:11:09

It is not every day you walk under a train to go to work, is it?

5:11:095:11:12

It is a fairly unique experience.

5:11:125:11:15

I imagine this bit of the walk for the painters and builders,

5:11:155:11:19

it is a bit like a tunnel at Wembley, as they walk onto the pitch

5:11:195:11:24

to the cheers of the adoring fans.

5:11:245:11:26

It is their walk to work, the only way in and out

5:11:265:11:30

and they do it every day.

5:11:305:11:33

With 200 trains passing over every day,

5:11:385:11:41

it is vital this huge steel beast remains rust free,

5:11:415:11:44

to keep it as strong as possible.

5:11:445:11:47

The best way to protect metal from rust is to paint it.

5:11:475:11:51

Just looking at the structure as we are walking past,

5:11:515:11:54

anybody who has helped their dad painting

5:11:545:11:56

will appreciate how big a job this is.

5:11:565:11:59

For over a century,

5:12:015:12:03

teams of workers have fought to keep the bridge in top condition,

5:12:035:12:07

by painting it day-in and day-out, year after year.

5:12:075:12:11

All the while, trains were passing while the work was carrying on?

5:12:115:12:14

It is a live bridge, it is not a museum piece,

5:12:145:12:17

has been here for 121 years

5:12:175:12:18

and will be here for an awful lot longer.

5:12:185:12:21

This never-ending job is finally finishing

5:12:235:12:26

and all because of this unlikely hero -

5:12:265:12:29

a can of paint.

5:12:295:12:30

Here is the paint.

5:12:305:12:32

The technical name is glass flake epoxy paint

5:12:325:12:35

and it is the toughest paint in the world.

5:12:355:12:38

It has thousands of microscopic glass flakes in each can

5:12:385:12:42

which lock together and form overlapping layers.

5:12:425:12:45

Just three coats of this bad boy

5:12:455:12:47

are strong enough to last for up to 25 years.

5:12:475:12:50

It was all delivered in pots like this. They were all delivered,

5:12:535:12:57

put into a spray container, but this is a pot of paint...

5:12:575:13:00

-SIREN SOUNDS

-..that's been used on the bridge.

5:13:005:13:03

And they are alarmed as well.

5:13:035:13:06

If anyone is picked them up that is not allowed to, the alarm goes off.

5:13:065:13:09

We better put that down and, hopefully, we won't get told off.

5:13:095:13:12

No, that's cos there's a train coming. I'm only kidding.

5:13:125:13:16

It has taken the 1,500 workers nearly ten years to paint the bridge

5:13:195:13:23

with this new super-strong paint.

5:13:235:13:26

It has been a truly massive operation.

5:13:265:13:29

6.5 million of these rivets hold the bridge together.

5:13:295:13:33

Each one of these were painted by hand.

5:13:335:13:36

6.5 million rivets - that is a lot of work.

5:13:365:13:39

A lot of cups of tea, isn't it?

5:13:395:13:41

With the painting part of the project over, the biggest challenge now

5:13:455:13:49

is finally taking down the 4,000 tonnes of scaffolding.

5:13:495:13:53

Before I help the boys out,

5:13:535:13:54

I am braving the lift and heading to the very top of the bridge.

5:13:545:13:58

-How high is this?

-110 metres above the River Forth.

5:13:585:14:03

We are going to the highest point of the bridge.

5:14:035:14:05

It makes you wonder how they actually built it in the first place,

5:14:055:14:09

without lifts.

5:14:095:14:10

You are right, how the guys built this 120-130 years ago,

5:14:105:14:15

-is just unbelievable.

-It's incredible.

5:14:155:14:17

As long as it stops and doesn't fall, I'm all right.

5:14:175:14:20

Oh, oh, oh!

5:14:245:14:26

Here we are, we are now on top of the Forth Bridge.

5:14:275:14:32

It is incredible.

5:14:325:14:34

Wow.

5:14:345:14:36

Even when you are at the side, on the banks,

5:14:365:14:38

looking at this amazing structure in the distance,

5:14:385:14:41

you never really get a sense of its size

5:14:415:14:43

until you're at the top of it, looking down.

5:14:435:14:46

Who has got the bungee cord?

5:14:485:14:50

Having experienced the highest peak of the bridge,

5:14:525:14:55

it is now time to get my hands dirty, dismantling the scaffolding.

5:14:555:14:58

-How long have you been here now?

-I've been here nine years now.

5:14:585:15:01

-Nine years on the bridge.

-Yeah.

5:15:015:15:04

This truly is a landmark moment for the workers like Colin,

5:15:045:15:09

who have been trying to tame this metal beast for many years.

5:15:095:15:13

Are you sad to see the end of the scaffolding and the boards?

5:15:135:15:17

It is a unique site. We will never get the experience

5:15:175:15:19

anywhere in Britain on a job like this again.

5:15:195:15:22

It will take me ten years to shift all this.

5:15:225:15:25

Before I leave, I have one final mission.

5:15:285:15:30

I have heard that when King Edward VII opened the bridge in 1890,

5:15:305:15:34

he put in the very last rivet himself,

5:15:345:15:37

and it was said to be made of pure gold.

5:15:375:15:40

As it turns out, there is no golden rivet. Apparently, it is a myth.

5:15:405:15:43

But there is one piece of gold

5:15:435:15:45

that I think would suit this bridge perfectly.

5:15:455:15:48

So to honour the thousands who built it

5:15:485:15:50

and to celebrate one of the greatest feats of Victorian engineering,

5:15:505:15:55

it gives me great pleasure to present the gold Blue Peter badge

5:15:555:15:58

to the Forth Bridge.

5:15:585:16:00

Such an incredible piece of Victorian engineering.

5:16:035:16:06

The steel they used to build it

5:16:065:16:07

is as strong today as it was 121 years ago.

5:16:075:16:10

Pixie, we couldn't have been on the show without asking some questions.

5:16:105:16:14

Our viewers have been getting in touch.

5:16:145:16:16

We've had loads of messages via the message boards

5:16:165:16:18

and we've some excited people waiting to speak to you

5:16:185:16:22

on our visual video phone.

5:16:225:16:24

Let's go to our first callers.

5:16:245:16:26

Hello, Abbey, and Georgia, and guy in the back

5:16:265:16:28

-putting glasses on doing something strange! How are you?

-Good, thanks.

5:16:285:16:32

-Do you know that man? That's Dad, yeah? See you later, Dad.

-Yeah.

5:16:325:16:36

You're live on Blue Peter with me and Pixie,

5:16:365:16:39

what would you like to ask her?

5:16:395:16:41

What's your favourite song that you've written?

5:16:415:16:43

A very good question and I must say I love your banner.

5:16:435:16:46

Erm, I always change my mind.

5:16:465:16:49

From the first album it's always the ballads,

5:16:495:16:51

I love Nothing Compares and Cry Me Out.

5:16:515:16:53

From this album, there is a ballad called We Just Go On or You Win.

5:16:535:16:57

They're my favourites. I wrote a song last week that I love,

5:16:575:17:00

but I can't tell you the name yet, in case it comes out as a single.

5:17:005:17:05

Abbey and Georgia, which of Pixie's songs do you like?

5:17:055:17:07

-Or Blue Peter screen!

-I like All About Tonight.

5:17:075:17:09

Ah. Thank you very much.

5:17:095:17:12

They're all catchy. Thanks for joining us, girls. See you later.

5:17:125:17:15

-Bye, girls.

-Bye. See ya. Maddie, are you there?

5:17:155:17:19

-Yes, I am, thank you.

-Hi, Maddie.

-What's your question for Pixie Lott?

5:17:195:17:24

What inspired you to be a singer when you were my age?

5:17:245:17:28

When I was younger, I used to listen to all the massive singers.

5:17:285:17:31

The big female diva voices, like Mariah or Whitney or Celine Dion.

5:17:315:17:36

I was in awe of their voices. It really inspired me to get involved.

5:17:365:17:41

Did that influence the kind of style you wanted to sing?

5:17:415:17:44

-They are big diva voices.

-Definitely.

5:17:445:17:46

It's what I learnt from.

5:17:465:17:48

I'd listen to them and, kind of,

5:17:485:17:50

not copy their style, but I didn't have lessons.

5:17:505:17:52

I just listened to them all the time and that's how I got into it.

5:17:525:17:56

-Do you want to be a singer?

-I want to be a singer and an actor.

5:17:565:18:01

-Give us a spin. Go, "Oh, yeah".

-Oh, yeah!

-What a voice!

5:18:015:18:05

What a stunner. Maddie, thanks for your question. See you later.

5:18:055:18:10

-Nathan, are you there?

-Yeah.

-Hi, Nathan. What is your question?

5:18:105:18:15

-Hi, Nathan.

-Hello.

5:18:155:18:18

What would you like to ask, Nathan?

5:18:195:18:22

If you could write a song all about Blue Peter,

5:18:225:18:25

what would be the first two lines?

5:18:255:18:28

That is a very good question, Nathan.

5:18:285:18:30

If I had to put it into one of my songs it'd be Kiss the Stars.

5:18:305:18:34

It would go...

5:18:345:18:37

# Baby, baby, I'm on Blue Peter

5:18:375:18:39

# Standing with Barney Isn't this funny? #

5:18:395:18:44

Nice! That is why she's stood there and we're over here.

5:18:445:18:47

That was pretty good wasn't it, Nathan.

5:18:475:18:49

What would your first two lines be?

5:18:495:18:52

-I am not too sure!

-He put you on the spot!

5:18:535:18:55

I wouldn't do that to you!

5:18:555:18:57

Thanks for your question, mate. See you in a bit. Ta-ra, fella. Lovely.

5:18:575:19:01

Loads of questions coming from the message board.

5:19:015:19:03

Greyspringyladybird says,

5:19:035:19:05

"When you're on tour, what do you miss the most?"

5:19:055:19:07

When I'm on tour, I love being on tour.

5:19:075:19:09

Touring's my favourite thing ever.

5:19:095:19:11

The thing I miss the most, I guess I'm travelling, so my friends,

5:19:115:19:15

doing normal things, going out, my family.

5:19:155:19:19

But I can't complain. I love touring.

5:19:195:19:21

It's ace. What a job.

5:19:215:19:23

"What was your favourite school subject?"

5:19:235:19:25

My favourite subject in school would have to be drama.

5:19:255:19:29

Quite right. It's all very dramatic, darlings.

5:19:295:19:31

That's all we've got time for today.

5:19:315:19:33

Thank you to everybody who's e-mailed with questions and comments.

5:19:335:19:36

We've reached the end of the show, but we've saved the best for last,

5:19:365:19:40

Pixie's going to perform her new single. Have you enjoyed yourself?

5:19:405:19:44

-I've had loads of fun. Have you had a good time?

-Lovely time, thanks.

5:19:445:19:46

If you'd like to get ready for your performance, while you're doing that,

5:19:465:19:51

I can tell you what you've got to look forward to on next week's show.

5:19:515:19:56

I meet the supergroup everyone's talking about, One Direction,

5:19:575:20:00

I'll reveal what they get up to on tour.

5:20:005:20:02

And Helen Skelton will be back home after conquering the South Pole.

5:20:025:20:06

If you want to ask her a question live on the show, e-mail us at...

5:20:065:20:11

If you can't wait until then, tune in to Helen's Polar Challenge

5:20:115:20:14

5:20:145:20:16

That's BBC One at 4:30pm to find out more about her amazing adventure.

5:20:165:20:20

Now, with an exclusive performance of her new single, Kiss the Stars,

5:20:205:20:23

from the album, Young Foolish Happy,

5:20:235:20:26

it's the awesome, she has a voice like melted chocolate.

5:20:265:20:28

Everybody, please give it up for the amazing Pixie Lott.

5:20:285:20:31
