It's round two of CBBC's Summer Sports Stars. Team Helen and team

:00:09.:00:13.

Barney take to the high seas in an action-packed race that will see

:00:13.:00:18.

Elements. Will my team be able to recover

:00:18.:00:22.

from yesterday's dodgeball defeat? And will Dominique be OK after she

:00:22.:00:32.
:00:32.:00:36.

gets into trouble on the sea? Hello! Hello. Are you cold? Yeah,

:00:36.:00:41.

I'm doing a bit of yoga at the same time. Also today, we are introduced

:00:41.:00:46.

to our final freak of nature. So far Rani has pitched the star nosed

:00:46.:00:51.

mole. Blowfish told us about the barreleye fish. Mike Dilger

:00:51.:00:54.

introduced the leafy sea dragon. Naomi told us all about the glass

:00:55.:01:00.

frog. Today, Chris Collins will introduce us to our final freak of

:01:00.:01:06.

nature, but will it knock Naomi off the top slot. You lot have been

:01:06.:01:10.

talking on the message board. have to reveal why I'm shaking this

:01:10.:01:14.

bag of ice. I'm going to show you how to make something very cool.

:01:14.:01:19.

Nearly everybody likes it. It comes in loads of flavours. When I eat it,

:01:19.:01:24.

it makes me smile. I'm talking ice- cream. Can you carry on with that?

:01:24.:01:32.

I will do. Yesterday we were drawn by the enmagic -- enigmatic beast

:01:32.:01:37.

that is Jack Black. We have been talking to a girl who also uses her

:01:37.:01:43.

voice to entertain. She has her own radio show. I'm Daisy. I'm ten

:01:43.:01:47.

years old. I have my own radio show. This is what it's like being me.

:01:47.:01:55.

I'm the presenter of a radio show which airs every Saturday 12-1. The

:01:55.:01:59.

show is broadcast across the Yorkshire Dales. You can listen

:01:59.:02:07.

anywhere online. It doesn't start there.

:02:07.:02:12.

Before I go near a microphone I have loads to do. First, I need to

:02:12.:02:17.

pick all the songs. The show is an hour long and I'll use six or seven

:02:17.:02:24.

tracks. I have to be ready for requests too. We're Daisy's friends

:02:24.:02:30.

and we love listening to her radio show. We always send requests.

:02:30.:02:36.

As well as the music, I review a TV programme. This week I'm doing Blue

:02:36.:02:43.

Peter. Some weeks I do a book review. I have to know what I'm

:02:43.:02:46.

talking about. But that's not all. I always tell people who's going on

:02:46.:02:53.

around the local area and what's on TV. It's Saturday morning, show day.

:02:53.:02:59.

I will show you round the studio. Here is the schedule. I'm up here.

:02:59.:03:07.

Here is the studio. There's my dad. This is where we do all of our

:03:07.:03:12.

shows. My dad does a show before me. While he's in there, I get ready

:03:12.:03:21.

for my show. I'm ready and it's show time. On the Blue Peter

:03:21.:03:25.

message board you wanted to know more about what it was like having

:03:25.:03:29.

your own radio show. How did you get your own show? My dad started

:03:29.:03:34.

doing his show first. Then I went up to the radio and met the station

:03:34.:03:37.

manager. I got chatting to him. He asked me whether I wanted my own

:03:37.:03:42.

show. I said yes, then I started. Do you ever get nervous before the

:03:42.:03:47.

show and what do you do to fight the nerves? The first time I was

:03:47.:03:51.

really nervous. I've done it lots of times now. I don't get as

:03:51.:03:56.

nervous. Do you practice what you're going to say or do you just

:03:56.:04:03.

say it straight away? I have a book, which I write all my articles in.

:04:03.:04:08.

Then, I practise them before I go on. What's the funniest thing

:04:08.:04:11.

that's happened on the radio? Saturday we couldn't do my show

:04:12.:04:15.

because we'd be broadcasting to nobody. The transmitter is on top

:04:15.:04:22.

of a hill and a horse had backed into it. So the radio had gone dead.

:04:22.:04:27.

Welcome to Crazy Daisy's late Saturday with me Daisy. Time for

:04:28.:04:33.

what's on in the area now. This week's book review... This week' TV

:04:33.:04:38.

-- week's TV review... The show's going really well so far. I'm

:04:38.:04:43.

really pleased. I always play requests and shout outs that come

:04:43.:04:51.

in. We've had someone who has asked for a request, that's Alice,

:04:51.:04:58.

Jasmine and Andrew. It's that time again, the end of the show. Thank

:04:58.:05:04.

you for listening, Crazy Daisy signing out. I have my own radio

:05:05.:05:10.

show. I hope you've enjoyed finding out what it's like being me.

:05:10.:05:15.

When I set my mind to something, I finish it. How impressive is Crazy

:05:15.:05:21.

Daisy. Kind of looks like you as a child. What do you think of crazy

:05:21.:05:25.

daisy? I think she rocks. I think she should have a summer road show.

:05:25.:05:28.

If she does I want to cater for it because I have the perfect food,

:05:28.:05:33.

ice-cream. You can make it yourself. Here it is. That's what you can be

:05:33.:05:36.

making yourself. You need these ingredients - a quarter pint of

:05:36.:05:40.

full fat milk, yes girls it's going straight to the hips. A quarter

:05:40.:05:45.

pint of single cream, two tablespoons of caster shuing ah,

:05:45.:05:51.

one teaspoon of vanilla essence, ice cubes, about 400 graps of --

:05:51.:06:00.

grams of salt, sealable sandwich bags small and big. We need to add

:06:00.:06:05.

bags small and big. We need to add all the ingredients together. Now

:06:05.:06:13.

we've got our caster sugar, after the milk and cream. Then the

:06:13.:06:18.

vanilla. Just whack it all in a jug. You can customise this recipe in

:06:18.:06:22.

any way - add chocolate, sweets, add those things on top, these

:06:22.:06:26.

colourful balls made of sugar. That's probably the technical names.

:06:26.:06:30.

Once you've stirred this for about three minutes, add it to one of

:06:30.:06:40.
:06:40.:06:40.

your small sandwich bags, a bit like this. You want to be very

:06:40.:06:44.

careful, you don't want to spill any. If you do, you'll have less

:06:44.:06:47.

ice-cream to enjoy. The reason the sandwich bags are sealable is

:06:47.:06:52.

because you don't want any mixture to escape. Squeeze as much air as

:06:52.:06:56.

you can. Seal it and then double it up, stick it inside another bag.

:06:56.:07:02.

This is very important. You'll see why in a minute.

:07:02.:07:10.

I guess to make Tripoli -- tripley sure, tie it up with a sandwich bag

:07:10.:07:14.

clip. That's the mixture for our ice-cream. Now we need our freezer.

:07:14.:07:21.

To make that, we need the big bags and you need about three jugs of

:07:21.:07:28.

ice. Make sure they're full as well. As much ice in there as you can get.

:07:28.:07:32.

As we're doubling things up at the moment let's dot same with the

:07:32.:07:37.

freezer. There is a reason why you don't want these ingredients to

:07:37.:07:41.

escape. To activate the ice, to make it even colder, we add roughly

:07:41.:07:47.

half a pint of salt. I know you don't normally weigh salt in pints.

:07:47.:07:53.

But if you can put it into a jug halfway, you have enough. Pour it

:07:53.:07:58.

into the ice like that. Then we add our mixture. Of course, this is

:07:58.:08:03.

where the sealed sandwich bag comes in. If you got salt in your ice-

:08:03.:08:10.

cream, it couldn't be very tasty. Seal the bags up properly. Again,

:08:10.:08:17.

tie it up with a big clip. Then give it a shake. This is the

:08:17.:08:22.

science. Basically, water freezes at about zero degrees. When you add

:08:22.:08:25.

salt to ice, it make it's colder. There's a chemical reaction that

:08:25.:08:30.

takes place. It draws all the heat out of the wet mixture in the

:08:30.:08:34.

middle making it colder and freezing it. As you know, Andy has

:08:34.:08:39.

been shaking his bag over there. Shaking, shaking. Shake it for

:08:39.:08:44.

about 12 minutes. My hands are freezing. Carefully, I'm very

:08:44.:08:50.

excited. Yes, it's solid. Solid as a rock. If we open the sandwich

:08:50.:08:59.

bags - I'm so excited! Can we try? Get in there. It really is ice-

:08:59.:09:06.

cream. Look at that. It really is as well. It's pretty

:09:06.:09:10.

solid. For more details go to the website. That is delicious. He's

:09:10.:09:16.

smug in the kitchen, that's good. Let's see how good he is when it

:09:17.:09:26.
:09:27.:09:34.

Suby -- sunny Brighton home of CBBC's sports stars 2011. Team

:09:34.:09:40.

Helen and team Barney are battling it out in four cool summer sports.

:09:40.:09:45.

We've gathered the best sports stars CBBC has to offer.

:09:45.:09:52.

In my team from Live n Deadly, Naomi. From hotel Trouble,

:09:52.:10:00.

Dominique. From Sportsround, Ore. From all over the place, Ed. From

:10:00.:10:06.

the CBBC office it's Ian. finally from Roar, Jonny.

:10:06.:10:11.

For the winning team the prestigious CBBC Summer Sports

:10:11.:10:15.

Stars trophy. And for the losing captain, a messy forfeit in the

:10:15.:10:25.
:10:25.:10:28.

Welcome back to Brighton. Yeah! Today is my event. We're going to

:10:28.:10:38.

be sea kayaking. It's an adrenaline-filled way to take to

:10:38.:10:41.

the surf and ride the waves. Today we take on the English Channel in a

:10:41.:10:48.

timed relay race. One of the best sea dogs around is here to teach us.

:10:48.:10:51.

He's been riding the waves for years in the most challenging

:10:51.:10:58.

conditions going. Adam, come on in. APPLAUSE

:10:58.:11:02.

What is going to be our biggest problem today? It's not the best

:11:02.:11:06.

summer's day. The problem is going to be the wind, the swell and it's

:11:06.:11:10.

going to be the waves breaking on the shore. Dominique looks

:11:10.:11:20.
:11:20.:11:26.

petrified. It's time to start the Twist, pull. Ian is my partner, not

:11:26.:11:29.

entirely convinced that this is his sport. He asked me which way up to

:11:29.:11:33.

hold the paddle because he didn't know his right from his left.

:11:33.:11:37.

has worked out well for Helen, hasn't it, a sport she knows a lot

:11:37.:11:42.

about. I wonder if that was tactical. Hey, that's the name of

:11:42.:11:46.

the game. After the paddles have been mastered, there's nothing to

:11:46.:11:54.

do but get on the water and practice stay ago float. I don't

:11:54.:11:58.

want to be with Barney. I don't want to do it. Who can blame her.

:11:58.:12:04.

The rough conditions are making it hard to keep control of our kayaks.

:12:04.:12:09.

If you hit a wave right, we were flying, weren't we? The

:12:10.:12:15.

important thing is keeping the kayak straight, so if it hits you

:12:15.:12:23.

on the side, you will get wet. Moments later Dominique and Jonny

:12:23.:12:29.

got in trouble. It was a rogue wave, it sent us flying. It landed on my

:12:29.:12:37.

head. I could cry. It's like the Titanic hit me. Gosh. Before we can

:12:37.:12:40.

carry on, Dominique gets the once over. I've had a good look, there's

:12:40.:12:43.

no bleeding. The conditions are tough. We don't want to see another

:12:43.:12:48.

accident out there, another bang on the head. I don't mind doing it

:12:48.:12:55.

again because I'm in the a quitter. APPLAUSE

:12:55.:12:59.

It's a relay race against the clock. Each team will split into pairs and

:13:00.:13:04.

each pair will have -- paddle out to sea 30 metres around the buoy

:13:04.:13:09.

and back. The fastest time wins. and back. The fastest time wins.

:13:09.:13:14.

For the winners, five points on the leaderboard.

:13:15.:13:20.

And they're off! Thanks to Ed and Barney's shoving, or are they off?

:13:20.:13:24.

They're in trouble straight away. They're grounded. Now they really

:13:24.:13:31.

are flying... Well... Almost. Brave Dominique's smiling. Jonny's

:13:31.:13:35.

powering it from the back. The waves are making it heavy going.

:13:35.:13:39.

There's a mouthful of salty water for Dominique. I don't think she

:13:39.:13:49.

fancies this at au. What blaifery, -- fancies this at all. What

:13:49.:13:53.

bravery, she's hanging in there. It's looking good. They've rolled

:13:53.:14:00.

it. It's happened again. This is Dominique's fear realised all over

:14:00.:14:10.
:14:10.:14:10.

again. Where are they going? Jump out of

:14:10.:14:15.

the boat. They're out of the water, they have to get back to the start.

:14:15.:14:25.
:14:25.:14:25.

Oh, what's he done. He needs that paddle. Stupid Jonny. Barney and Ed

:14:26.:14:29.

jump into their kayak, whilst Dominique takes a rest after that

:14:30.:14:32.

Dominique takes a rest after that ordeal and it was an ordeal.

:14:32.:14:37.

wouldn't say you made it look easy... Paddling strong and hard

:14:37.:14:41.

and ridge make. They need to pick up the pace to secure a good time.

:14:41.:14:43.

Excellently negotiating themselves around the marker. They're looking

:14:44.:14:49.

good. They're looking good. Oh, they're not looking good. They've

:14:50.:14:55.

done a Dominique roll. The waves are thrashing them there. Ed and

:14:55.:14:59.

Barney all over the place, giving it everything now. They're powering

:14:59.:15:08.

for home. They're over the line, stop the clock.

:15:08.:15:12.

I closed my eyes for a lot of it. That's probably why you took so

:15:12.:15:16.

long. It's team Helen's turn. Naomi means

:15:16.:15:24.

business here, look at that. She's looking very strong. She's

:15:24.:15:31.

lapping up the sea water. Adding the muscle. They're quickest round

:15:31.:15:37.

the marker so far. That's text book paddling. Oh, they've gone! They're

:15:37.:15:43.

in the drink. It's the same wave that catches everyone out, look.

:15:43.:15:47.

Naughty waves. Still an excellent performance there.

:15:47.:15:52.

Helen is fired up for this one. She's like a speed boat. Let's

:15:52.:15:56.

start Helen's engines and watch her go, go, go! Team Helen need to win

:15:56.:16:01.

this. Five points on the leaderboard at stake now.

:16:01.:16:05.

A lot of pride hangs in the balance for legend Helen.

:16:05.:16:09.

That has to be the biggest wave of the competition so far.

:16:09.:16:15.

Can they stay upright however, on the tricky home strait? Their team-

:16:15.:16:18.

mates are guiding them home. There's no stopping them now.

:16:18.:16:27.

They're out. They're over the line. But have they done enough? It felt

:16:27.:16:32.

forever to get in the water. and I were slow coming back it. It

:16:32.:16:37.

was so shallow. I think we were marginally quicker. She's amazing,

:16:37.:16:41.

Helen Skelton when she gets going. If we get anywhere near them, I

:16:41.:16:46.

would be very happy. Both teamles did really well. It's challenging

:16:46.:16:49.

did really well. It's challenging out there. However, it's time for

:16:49.:16:56.

the results. Team Barney, your team did it in 5.49. Very well done to

:16:56.:17:01.

you guys. Team Helen, your team did it in... 4.30.

:17:01.:17:08.

CHEERING So Helen taking a much needed five

:17:08.:17:16.

points and after two events, it's all square on the leaderboard.

:17:16.:17:24.

Next time on CBBC Summer Sports Stars, there's jumps, bumps and an

:17:24.:17:32.

injury that could change everything. Who will reign supreme and who will

:17:32.:17:38.

be one step nearer to a gunging in the deck chair of doom?

:17:38.:17:43.

I know we don't like to gloat, but we are happy to win that round.

:17:43.:17:49.

Victory for my team and an additional trophy that Isla brought

:17:49.:17:54.

to the beach for us. Thank you very much. Can I keep it? I wasn't there.

:17:54.:17:58.

You meanies, giving away my trophies. I would be the sea

:17:58.:18:03.

kayaking. This could get messy. Let's not have a fight now boys. It

:18:04.:18:12.

is time for this: Freaks of nature. It is time for the finale of freaks

:18:12.:18:17.

of nature. Over the last five weeks, we have been trying to find the

:18:17.:18:19.

freakiest creature or plant out there. We've been grading them out

:18:19.:18:24.

of 30 and we have produced this Freaky Five leaderboard. At the

:18:24.:18:28.

minute, Rani sits in fourth place with the star nosed mole. We gave

:18:28.:18:34.

that 23 out of 30. In third place, is blowfish with the barreleye fish.

:18:34.:18:41.

That got 25 out of 30. Just ahead is Mike Dilger's sea dragon with

:18:41.:18:45.

27-and-a-half out of 30. Going to be honest a few points were awarded

:18:45.:18:50.

for his impression of the sea dragon. It was freaky. Naomi

:18:50.:18:53.

brought us the glass frog. We gave it a whopping 29 out of 30, because

:18:54.:18:57.

we thought it was really, really freaky. The trouble is lots of you

:18:57.:19:05.

disagree. Especially somebody who goes under the name I Love Andy.

:19:05.:19:09.

Whoever this is says, "I think you were very harsh on Rani and the

:19:09.:19:13.

blowfish. You could have given them more. I suggest 26 out of 30 for

:19:13.:19:19.

Rani's star nosed mole. You should have given blowfish's barreleye

:19:19.:19:23.

fish 28." Another person says "I think you gave the sea dragon way

:19:23.:19:28.

too many points. The glass frog should be first, then the barreleye

:19:28.:19:32.

fish." Scoobyi says the leafy sea dragon is a freak of nature,

:19:32.:19:37.

because it looks like seaweed. Another one said "I think the glass

:19:37.:19:40.

frog is the scariest because you can see what it ate for breakfast."

:19:40.:19:45.

Some people agreeing, but lots disagreeing. The pressure is on.

:19:45.:19:49.

I'm like a football referee. Once a decision is made, it's made.

:19:49.:19:53.

quite happy with the decisions I made. I probably would swap the

:19:53.:20:01.

star nosed mole for the barreleye fish now. I need the dollar, the

:20:01.:20:06.

doll ah, the dollar is what I need. Don't start. That song is in my

:20:06.:20:09.

head. Now for our final expert. Let's meet him.

:20:09.:20:13.

Today's expert is Chris Collins. He's a man who comes face to face

:20:13.:20:17.

with weird and wonderful British wildlife every day. He just loves

:20:17.:20:21.

to get his hands dirty. He's Blue Peter's own gardener. We won't be

:20:21.:20:27.

doing favours today. Who will he choose as his freak of nature? Here

:20:27.:20:35.

he is Chris Collins everybody! APPLAUSE

:20:35.:20:40.

OK Chris, what have you got? Being a gardener I had to pitch a plant.

:20:40.:20:46.

This is the pitcher plant. This is a freak of nature. You get 60

:20:46.:20:51.

seconds to pitch the pitcher plant. At the end we will mark out of ten.

:20:51.:20:55.

Then we'll put it on the Freaky Five leaderboard. You're going to

:20:55.:20:59.

have to be good to clinch the top spot. 60 seconds on the clock, it's

:20:59.:21:04.

time to freak us out! This might look like an innocent plant. But

:21:04.:21:09.

this plant is a meat eater. It makes the Venus flytrap look

:21:09.:21:14.

friendly. If you have insects or a frog or a small mouse or rat, this

:21:14.:21:18.

plant can eat you alive. It gives on scents like decaying flesh to

:21:18.:21:24.

attract the creatures. They come along in a tropical climate and

:21:24.:21:30.

they fall into a pitcher. Inside here is digestive juices. The rats

:21:30.:21:34.

fall down inside and gradually, over a few weeks gradually be eaten

:21:34.:21:39.

alive. These pitchers can get up to two foot tall, two foot long in the

:21:39.:21:44.

wild. Imagine, you're a rat, you go inside, you can't climb up again,

:21:44.:21:52.

the sides are full of mucous and gradually you're eaten of -- alive.

:21:52.:21:55.

This has to be definitely a freak of nature.
