Coming up on Today's show, we will find out which one of us will be
crowned Blue Peter Champion Baker. She is the X Factor star with a
swagger - Cher Lloyd is here Hello. Please join me in staying
happy birthday to this man. Happy birthday! I'm excited about my
flashy badge but I'm also excited about our special guest today.
Before we need to, let's take a look at her in action. Her share
Lloyd came Firth last year in X Factor and has enjoyed massive
success with her debut single, entering the charts at number one.
New single, With Ur Love, has just been released. Her new album is out
today. Its Cher Lloyd everybody! You cannot help but sing along to
that June, it is so catchy. I have at present, here is your Blue Peter
badge. Thank you so much! Huge congratulations on the album, we
have it here. I was at the club last week and every other person it
was playing your song on their phone. What is that like? It is
quite strange for me to hear people string it. You are getting
massively successful very quickly and lots of people have been
sending questions in on our message board. This is live and you can
send your questions and messages in. We will ask them at that later. Now
though, we are asking you to hold big sales for this year's appeal.
He and I decided to have one each. You have inspired us and you have
raised lots of money so we thought we would make it a challenge to see
who could raise the most amount of money for Children in Need. This
year's appeal is all about making a difference. CBBC stars have done it,
footballers have done it. But now it is time for the ultimate Bake-A-
Difference challenge. It is me begging for the people of Blackpool.
Verses me selling to the crowds of Carlisle. We are competing to sell
as many baked items as we can at our very own sale. They will take
place at the same time at our home towns almost 100 miles apart.
thought we would get �50 to start us off and the idea is to make as
much money for Children in Need. Our journey starts here at the Blue
Peter headquarters. We need to start planning because there is no
time to lose. Our sales start tomorrow at 4pm. I need cakes.
have already come up with a plan. There's one person I know who just
happens to be part of my family. It is my dad's missus, Kim. I am
hoping her contacts will secured some deals. I am thinking of we get
local schools involved and all the pupils could cook for us. Do it
yourself, lazy! I am busy for it all the local bakeries I can think
of it. Anything, cakes, biscuits, anything really. Helen it might
have some donations but I already have a school on board. Brilliant,
that is a school doing 30 cakes. None of the only one getting
schools to be for you, Barney! With just over 24 hours until our sales,
I am heading to Cumbrian schools on the way to Carlisle. I am heading
to Radio Lancashire to promote my soul. By the time I get there at
2:30pm, it is the peak for interest and people will come tomorrow and
by one of art kicks. That means I've got some advertising and some
cakes to set it up. You see? We told you this business was easy! So
were both feeling confident but I might have spoken too soon. We have
now hit traffic so if I don't get to the schools in time to collect
the cakes, I'll have nothing to sell! Empty roads, beautiful
scenery, gorgeous sunshine, it is a pleasure to drive on days like this.
I am trying to be productive while stuck in traffic. You might have
came helping you but I am enlisting the help of an expert. So no other
product? Thanks, I'll see you tomorrow. I am still stuck in
traffic 50 miles away. There's no sign of it Clearing. To make
matters worse, I have to listen to Barney on the radio. It is going to
be in the local shopping centre in Blackpool at 4pm - come and buy
some cakes, it's for an amazing cause. We're looking for people to
take the kicks. If we can sell that many, that will be great. What a
tough dilemma he is in! He has too many kicks! That was sickening,
wasn't it? As I walked out of the studio, I got a phone call from
Helen but I couldn't answer it so I know what is going to say.
didn't mention my cake sale and mention. I think things are about
to hot up. Watch her go. After four hours of traffic, we are finally on
the move and one of the schools I have lined up has agreed to wait.
Keep the faith, team, we are back in the competition! Don't get too
excited because I am already cake collecting at my grandma's house.
Thank you very much, that is lovely. I am going to slice this and sell
it. A pound each, do you think? End of day one, I've only got one cake
but there's still plenty more to come. I guess I'll see you tomorrow,
I'm really excited. This one is legendary, it will go for a fortune.
1 K? I have finally made it to the school and it looks like I will be
finishing the day with more cakes then you? Do you think we are going
to beat Barnet? That is about foul of muffins, cakes and biscuits. At
least we have achieved something today because I thought it was
going to be a total disaster. If you want to find out who makes the
most money, stick with us until the end of the show but let's go back
to her guest. Cher Lloyd, you will need this. And these as well. In
your last music video, you had a lot of the lens so we thought we
would stick with the theme. All the questions that have been sent in
the throughout the week have been put into these balloons and you
have to pop one to get the question out. Whichever one you like, go for
it. I'm going to go for the pink one. There is the question. Millie
says I Love Your Song, but how has your life changed since you became
a pop star. You're the best singer in the world! It has changed a lot,
I get to meet new people and I get to sing everywhere. So it has
changed a lot. Clearly for the better because you are smiling a
lot. I will go for the yellow one. This is from Scott he says, I love
you new song, did you have a childhood nickname? I never had one,
no. It's really annoying because I would have liked to have had won so
if you have any suggestions... next one. You really are a pop star
today! Hannah says do you prefer to record on stage or record in a
studio? On stage because you get to share it with everyone. When you
recording, you just in a room on your own. But you have been to some
exotic places to Recorder album? have been to Los Angeles. Miami and
Sweden. One more balloon. This question is from Lydia he says, who
is your biggest pop star rival and who inspires you the most? I don't
have any rivals! Who inspires you? A lot of people inspire May,
whether it be their singing by their clothes or whatever. I like
lots of people, I like Jesse J, Pixie Lott dresses, lots. We have
been inspired to hold our big sales and we will now find out who has
raised the most amount of money. Here it is. Previously: We both
started Planet Art Sales and headed for our home towns of Blackpool and
Carlisle. While Helen was stuck in traffic, I got off to a flying
start, promoting my seal on the radio. But I soon made a comeback,
finishing the day with a boot full of kicks. It is not over yet, it is
the day of the sale and we have until 4pm to sort everything out.
It is an early start for me, I am at Radio Cumbria, spreading the
word. The sale starts at 4pm so come along and hopefully there will
be lots of cakes and lots of punters and hopefully we will raise
lots of money. Meanwhile I start the day by Colin 10, my adviser in
Blackpool and it seems there is much more to planning this than I
thought. Have you got tablecloths? No, I don't have tablecloths.
you something to display the cakes on? No. Isn't it more important to
have something to sell? These smell even better than they look. My kids
don't look too bad either. We are both giving out a good stock of
items. In Blackpool I have decided to break a Victoria sponge cake. I
had to be something, I am still going to get involved myself. Let's
hope the time is taken is worth it. I had to another primary-school to
collect some more donations. Hello! These are amazing, who made his?
Back in Carlisle, I am so desperate to get going, that I have started
selling some kicks early. At a cattle auction! These cupcakes were
baked in Penrith. We will sell them as one lot. I thought we were
supposed to be selling the cakes at our stalls? It's all for a good
cause and Rules are there to be broken, right? �190 from one a tray
of cakes. The money is rolling in and the sales haven't even started.
It is now 3pm and we are now taking everything we have to the shopping
centre so we will see what happens when we get there. 4pm is fast
approaching and setting up the sale this big takes time. By a expert
cupcake entrepreneur has arrived and is making sure everything is
under control. Can I hand over the setting out at you? Sure. She has
managed to get so many kicks delivered which is amazing but she
is little disorganised and she has let us here today with everything.
In Blackpool, I arrived to set up myself. It starts in half an hour
and I haven't given up the table's ready. Barney, you are cutting it
fine. My stock is coming along nicely. All in good time, you are
not the only one with help. I have a few people helping me to get
We have ten minutes. However, we have not managed the price any
items yet. With our cakes laid out, it is time for us to open our sales.
The bake sale is open, so come and buy some kaep cakes. Let us make
money. We have an hour to make as much money as we can for Children
In Need. Everything is a pound each. You want five? Thank you very much.
We have so much done. We haven't It is a busy start for both of us
but with 20 minutes to go I am making the most of the crowds by
auctioning off a year's supply of cookies. Nin anybody willing to
give a fiver for it. My Victoria sponge has not sold. To shift my
cakes I am roaming the shopping centre in search of customers. A
pound a cake? One pound for a cake. Girl, help me out! I am doing
exactly the same. You look like a man who likes pizza. Come this way.
Head for a cook key. Thank you very much. One minute left. One minute
left! With a few seconds to go, one customer has an unexpected offer
for me. I want to give you �100 for everything that is left on that
stall. That is very oak. Thank you so much. Amazing. That is �100 for
everything we have got left. Five, four, three, two, chuck it in. Now.
Chuck it in. That's the end. OK. Well done. Take a look at the table.
It is empty. We have sold everything. We have a lot of cake
left we makes me think oh dear but our cash tin is full. We have
raised lots of money but I don't know if I have beat Helen. I have!
I don't know. I have. This chair is moving with you waggling your legs
about. We were pretending we didn't care. I know. Let us find out how
much money Barney has raised. Drum roll please. The total amount of
money you collected for Children In Need is... �559. That will do.
that is good. The total amount of money raised by Helen Skelton is...
So OK, you beat me by quite a way. Let us work out the total amount of
money that has been raised for Children In Need. � 1540.

We couldn't have done it without a lot of help from a lot of people.

University of Cumbria. Katie, George, Thomas, Shelley, so many
people helped me out. Thank you so much. Thanks to her mum for putting
�800 in. All the local bakerys that helped out. Everyone that helped on
the day. There is so many to mention. Thank you, we couldn't
have done it without you. Between us we sold 1830 items so I think we
should add to the totaliser. While we have been off gal vaanting you
have been holding bake sales up and down the country. Let us have
another drum roll for the totaliser. Because we want to find out how
many items you have pledged to bake and sell all for Children In Need.

Need is happening on Friday 18th November. So have a bake sale and
let us know how you get on. We are only moments away from Cher
performing. Before she does let us ask some of your questions. Welcome
back Cher. Loads of question in for you. Mark said where do you see
yourself in five years' time? is a good question.. He is digging
for cakes? I would like to see myself in a big arena. Wembley
Arena. Definitely. Having a couple of albums out. You are heading the
right way. It is on its way. If you had a chance to collaborate on one
of your favourite songs, what would it be? If you could invite someone
to sing with you. Someone different. I would ask someone like Dolly
Parton. A bit of country. We didn't expect that. This one says are you
planning to go on tour? I would like to go on tour. Hopefully yeah,
Manchester. Who why is your album called Sticks and Stones. At school
you have a bit of trouble with girls, arguing, stuff like that. I
used to go home to my mum and say so-and-so is picking on me. She
would say sticks and stones make break my bones. That is why I have
called it that. It is good to have that positive message with an
album? Yes, I have learned be strong, shake it off and get on
with my music. Get ready for your performance because we have seen
her rehearse. It is ewe neck, especially for us. While you do
