Today, we spring a big surprise on a man who has brought some of our

:00:22.:00:27.

favourite characters to life. Stand by as we go gastro-nutty as

:00:27.:00:30.

experimental chef Stefan Gates supports this year's Blue Peter

:00:30.:00:40.
:00:40.:00:57.

On guard. The reason I'm dressed like is because there is a new film

:00:57.:01:01.

out this week called The Three Musketeers. It's full of action,

:01:01.:01:07.

thrills and spills, stunts, Orlando Bloom is in it, James Corden is in.

:01:07.:01:11.

There is comedy. This plastic sword is a joke. Brace yourself. We know

:01:11.:01:15.

you learnt your skills on the set of The Three Musketeers. In this

:01:15.:01:22.

studio, right here, right now, you have met your match. You were meant

:01:22.:01:31.

to catch that. Let's see how I got on on the red carpet. It might look

:01:31.:01:36.

look I'm in France I'm at a film premier for The Three Musketeers. I

:01:36.:01:42.

will escort Freddy Fox down the red carpet. Every King needs a

:01:42.:01:52.
:01:52.:01:55.

bodyguard. That is where these guys Guys, can we slow it down a second.

:01:55.:02:00.

Some of us have to learn skills to protect the King. The musketeers

:02:00.:02:04.

were created by the King of France at the beginning of the 17th

:02:04.:02:09.

century. They acted as the King's personal guards. The legend has

:02:09.:02:12.

been brought bang up-to-date with the release of this new film much I

:02:12.:02:16.

will meet Freddy very soon. How are you? First, I need to learn how to

:02:17.:02:26.
:02:27.:02:34.

This isn't called a sword. This is the weapon of the musketeer. Other

:02:34.:02:38.

than being honourable what makes a good musketeer? Excellent sword

:02:38.:02:45.

work. At all cost protect the King. And and look good while you do it,

:02:45.:02:51.

if if you can. You lay-down the challenge, I accept. Excellent.

:02:51.:02:56.

lesson starts off pretty well. I'm learning good skills and feeling

:02:56.:03:00.

confident. That's it. When it comes to being a musketeer I think I'm

:03:00.:03:07.

half way. There look at these guys, girlie hair and leather. I have

:03:07.:03:11.

curly hair. I've got the leather. I need practice with this sword.

:03:11.:03:17.

Where is some competition? As always, I spoke too soon. I think

:03:17.:03:22.

I've taught you all I can for today. We u need prove your self-. It's

:03:22.:03:28.

time to see if I can cut it as a movie musketeer. Here they come.

:03:28.:03:35.

They are dressed in black. They are the bad guys. Look at them staring

:03:35.:03:40.

me out. Without a sword. You won't always have a sword to protect the

:03:40.:03:45.

King. I'm not sure what I'm doing. I'm nervous. I will try and get

:03:45.:03:55.
:03:55.:03:55.

your sword. OK. Well done. As if one isn't enough, now, I have to

:03:55.:04:05.
:04:05.:04:08.

APPLAUSE It has to be embarrassing for them,

:04:08.:04:13.

hasn't it? Three boys, one girl. The men head off in a sulk. There

:04:13.:04:19.

is good news for me. Job done. You are a fully qualified musketeer.

:04:19.:04:25.

Are you confident the King will be OK? I'm confident the King is in

:04:25.:04:30.

safe hands. Thank you, no-one needs to worry about the King. Have fun.

:04:30.:04:35.

I've mastered the art of being a musketeer and feel ready to meet

:04:35.:04:41.

Freddy Fox. Brawling with the Cardinal's guards, very bad. He is

:04:42.:04:45.

talking to the press about the movie. I feel it's my job to save

:04:45.:04:50.

him from the boring interviews. costume... I'm here to protect you.

:04:51.:04:57.

I'm not sure I'm happy about this. That means all journalists out.

:04:57.:05:07.
:05:07.:05:11.

That's the door over there. don't I have one of those. Build me

:05:11.:05:19.

one. You are backed into a corner. Right. I'm the King I can say,

:05:19.:05:26.

"stop it" Yeah., "stop". I'm your servant. Gotcha. The benefits of

:05:26.:05:33.

being a King. In the film you act if if you are not on guard, but you

:05:33.:05:38.

are? Maybe that is the truth. You have to be when have you the

:05:38.:05:48.

Cardinal and Buckingham, roch fort and M'lady. Finish them off.

:05:48.:05:53.

give me from saying this, D'Artagnan, you look a little under

:05:53.:05:56.

dressed. You seem object cress sesed with fashion, is that

:05:57.:06:04.

important to you? Very. In real- life and in the film? You look

:06:04.:06:09.

dapper. Definitely. You have beaten me hands down. In the film big

:06:09.:06:14.

names. Yeah. Who was run to work alongside? James Corden was fun.

:06:14.:06:23.

Sorry, sirs. He carries the bags. He is the bagman. What are you?

:06:23.:06:29.

Complete and utter waste of space, sir. And. I will see you on the red

:06:29.:06:36.

carpet. I'll blend in, watching your back. Back at the film's

:06:36.:06:41.

opening the crowds are gathering. I make sure the area is safe. Let the

:06:41.:06:51.
:06:51.:06:51.

premier begin. Take That, everyone! As the stars arrive, I take the

:06:51.:06:59.

chance to speak to my fellow musketeers. Matthew Macfadyen plays

:06:59.:07:05.

Athos? Did it take you a long time to learn the fight scenes? Yes, it

:07:05.:07:09.

took a month. You practice and practice the moves over and over

:07:09.:07:19.
:07:19.:07:19.

again and get them faster and faster and faster. Ray Stephenson

:07:19.:07:24.

is Porthos. How hard was it to learn the skills? You have a short

:07:24.:07:33.

career if you don't learn the skills. Luke Evans is Aramis. The

:07:33.:07:38.

only thing you miss in your gang is a a woman. I keep guard. It's not

:07:38.:07:45.

long until the King arrives. He has arrived in one piece on the red

:07:45.:07:50.

carpet. How are you feeling after your encounter? I feel better

:07:50.:07:54.

trained. I feel better prepared. I feel better protected. That is

:07:54.:08:00.

exactly what I wanted to hear. From one King to another. Orlando Bloom

:08:00.:08:07.

plays the fashion conscious King of England. Love the outfit. Very

:08:07.:08:13.

retro. We were wearing those in London, when was it, last year or

:08:13.:08:21.

the year before? Hello Blue Peter. How are you? I'm good. You have

:08:21.:08:27.

your badge on. How can you not notice the out fit and go for the

:08:27.:08:36.

badge? The badge counts. How can anyone compete with my bloomers?

:08:36.:08:42.

have learnt lessons should I need to protect a King again. You have

:08:42.:08:46.

to be honourable, skilful and determined. Other thing I've learnt.

:08:46.:08:50.

If you want to attract the attention of movie stars wear a big

:08:50.:08:56.

hat. Good advice that right there. Always wear a large hat. That was a

:08:56.:09:03.

lesson on how to be a movie start star by Orlando Bloom becharming.

:09:03.:09:08.

He said if he picked the muss MissS I could be one. Sometimes we have

:09:08.:09:12.

special guests on the show. Sometimes it's the guest that do

:09:12.:09:16.

something special that we think should be noticed. Tony Ross is a

:09:16.:09:20.

well-known illustrator. He brought some of your favourite chashs to

:09:20.:09:24.

life over the years including Little Princess and Horrid Henry.

:09:24.:09:28.

love Horrid Henry. He would fit in with the musketeers dressed like

:09:28.:09:32.

that. Only if I was there to protect him. I can't speak I'm

:09:32.:09:36.

thinking of Orlando Bloom. Let's find out what happened when we gave

:09:36.:09:41.

something special to Tony Ross. heard he was going to be at this

:09:41.:09:48.

school outside Birmingham along with Francesca Simon author of

:09:49.:09:54.

Horrid Henry. I have to make sure he doesn't see me as I try to

:09:54.:10:04.
:10:04.:10:11.

So, here I am hiding in the headmasters office, along with the

:10:11.:10:15.

Horrid Henry costume, which I will put on. He has no idea what's about

:10:15.:10:24.

to happen. Normally, when you go to the headmasters office it's for a

:10:24.:10:33.

different reason. Tony and Francesca have started on the

:10:33.:10:39.

screen. She was awarded her Gold badge in 2010. She knows all about

:10:39.:10:43.

it today. The children and Tony don't have a clue. I have to put my

:10:43.:10:53.
:10:53.:11:13.

head on and wait for my cue. Here Here we go! I'm very pleased to

:11:13.:11:20.

introduce to you a very special visitor.

:11:20.:11:24.

# It's not easy being me # Wash your face and brush your

:11:24.:11:34.

hair... # Now, I'm here for a very special

:11:34.:11:40.

reason. The last time Tony and I were together Tony turned to me and

:11:40.:11:47.

said, "when I I get my gold Blue Peter badge" I said, "you have to

:11:47.:11:51.

earn it"? You said. That I've never earnt anything in my life. Do you

:11:51.:11:58.

think he's earnt it now? YES! second, Tony, it gives me great

:11:58.:12:01.

pleasure for delighting audiences all over the place and for being a

:12:01.:12:05.

great friend to Blue Peter that is your very own gold Blue Peter badge.

:12:05.:12:15.
:12:15.:12:22.

Wow! He is such a lovely guy.

:12:23.:12:27.

talented. I love him more for the fact he went rock star at the end

:12:27.:12:31.

and went, "thank you" A very special man with a very special

:12:31.:12:37.

badge. Time to tell you about the Blue Peter appeal Bake A Difference.

:12:37.:12:42.

Lots of people have been helping us to help with children in need.

:12:42.:12:47.

Stefan Gates has got on board from Gastronuts. He took ordinary

:12:47.:12:53.

ingredients and turned them into an extraordinary event. I have been

:12:54.:13:01.

reading his joke book. I'm Stefan Gates I love cooking. I'm obsessed

:13:01.:13:04.

with the wild side of food, not only how it tastes but

:13:04.:13:12.

experimenting with it and pushing the boundaries of what food can do.

:13:12.:13:17.

Now, I'm on a mission to expose the extreme side of one of the most

:13:17.:13:22.

popular baked goods of all, the sweet, humble cupcake. Over the

:13:22.:13:27.

last few years, cupcakes have exploded in popularity. They are

:13:27.:13:33.

worth a fortune. The cupcake industry is worth over �26 million

:13:34.:13:39.

and billions worldwide. I will show you that the ingredients used in

:13:39.:13:45.

cupcakes can be bizarre, super strong, highly reactive and down

:13:45.:13:49.

right dangerous. You'll never look at a cupcake in the same way again.

:13:49.:13:56.

First up, the icing. It starts off like, this nice, clean and white.

:13:56.:14:02.

What goes into it to turn it pink. Natural food colouring. It's so

:14:02.:14:07.

strong you need a tiny little bit to turn this whole pot of icing

:14:07.:14:12.

bright pink. Let's take the water out of the colouring and see what

:14:12.:14:22.
:14:22.:14:22.

is left. It's a powder. It's hair. Let's take a closer look at her.

:14:22.:14:31.

You can see that she's an insect. She lives on cactus leaves in South

:14:31.:14:39.

America. They dry them out in the heat of the sun. The legs get

:14:39.:14:48.

knocked off. You take these bugs and you put them in a pot and grind

:14:48.:14:55.

them up. You get this dark, almost rust-coloured powder. What that is

:14:55.:15:04.

is the blood. When you add a little bit of water that red blood turns

:15:04.:15:14.
:15:14.:15:14.

into a bright pink food dye. Mix that, together with some icing, and

:15:14.:15:22.

that is insect blood pink. We put that on our cupcakes and we eat

:15:22.:15:32.
:15:32.:15:33.

Have a look around your food car but -- your food cupboard. If you

:15:33.:15:39.

spot cochineal, you have been eating cochineal bugs. Next, eggs,

:15:39.:15:43.

the most extraordinary ingredient in the cupcake. That is the real

:15:43.:15:48.

problem with eggs. When I bring things home from the shops, I am

:15:48.:15:52.

worried if they have smashed. In some ways, they are incredibly

:15:52.:15:57.

strong as well. The strength is in the shells. This as an experiment

:15:57.:16:00.

you can try at home if your parents give you permission and if you do

:16:00.:16:05.

it over the sink with protective gear. Take your eggs so it is

:16:05.:16:13.

upright, and squeeze, and squeezed harder, and as hard as you can! You

:16:13.:16:17.

probably don't believe me but that was me squeezing as hard as I

:16:17.:16:22.

possibly could. But the eggshell is not breaking. The reason is, these

:16:22.:16:28.

have an amazing design. This stone shape means that all of the

:16:28.:16:31.

pressure in between my fingers is spread across the entirety of the

:16:31.:16:38.

egg -- dome shape. I want to do an experiment find out how much weight

:16:38.:16:43.

eggs can take. Here I have a couple of trays of eggs. I am going to put

:16:43.:16:53.
:16:53.:16:54.

a heavy weight on them. Let's start with a brick. I will lay it down

:16:54.:17:01.

gently. The eggs will support the weight of a brick. Not bad. Let's

:17:01.:17:09.

upscale bliss. I have -- upscale this. I have a large piece of a

:17:09.:17:14.

house. It probably weighs about half the weight of me. I am going

:17:14.:17:22.

to drop it very gently onto the eggs. But I think most of them have

:17:22.:17:32.
:17:32.:17:32.

survived, let's have a quick look. Yes! Can be eggs take a fully grown

:17:32.:17:42.
:17:42.:17:52.

Stefan? Here we go. I can feel one Oh, my word! The eggs have taken my

:17:52.:17:56.

entire weight! Can they take the weight of the large bit of building,

:17:56.:18:01.

weight of the large bit of building, and me? I have never put this much

:18:01.:18:11.
:18:11.:18:11.

weight on eggs before. Here goes. One of them so went but just then!

:18:11.:18:21.
:18:21.:18:24.

That is amazing. There is only so much an egg can do. If you think

:18:24.:18:29.

that is amazing, wait until you see what my next extraordinary

:18:29.:18:34.

ingredient can do. Bicarbonate of soda. It is a strange white powder.

:18:34.:18:40.

Look at that. This stuff is put into your cake to help it rise,

:18:40.:18:44.

because it leads off a gas when it is cooked. It sounds a bit weird,

:18:45.:18:50.

so I will show you what happens. This is an old fashioned 35

:18:50.:18:55.

millimetre film canister. I am going to put a little bit of lemon

:18:55.:19:01.

juice inside of it. About a centimetre. Take one piece of

:19:01.:19:05.

toilet paper, put it over the canister, so it goes down, but not

:19:05.:19:09.

canister, so it goes down, but not as far as the lemon juice. Take a

:19:09.:19:16.

teaspoon of bicarbonate of soda. Stick it in the top. Put the lid

:19:16.:19:24.

And then, I'm going to turn it over, so that the bicarbonate of soda

:19:24.:19:30.

mixes with the lemon juice. See mixes with the lemon juice. See

:19:30.:19:33.

what happens. A little pop. What is what happens. A little pop. What is

:19:33.:19:36.

happening here is the lemon juice is reacting with the bicarbonate of

:19:36.:19:39.

is reacting with the bicarbonate of soda, and releasing carbon dioxide.

:19:39.:19:43.

It is exactly the same thing that happens in your cakes. If we can

:19:43.:19:49.

make a film canister pop, I wonder if I can do the same thing on a

:19:49.:19:59.
:19:59.:19:59.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 48 seconds

:19:59.:20:48.

Next time, I will be taking it one step further, with icing sugar and

:20:48.:20:56.

flour. Believe me, it will be In case you are wondering if eggs

:20:56.:21:00.

really are that strong, we have them here and I really am squeezing

:21:00.:21:06.

that as hard as I can. I thought I was strong! These are real eggs, by

:21:06.:21:16.
:21:16.:21:20.

I can't complain, look at him! It I can't complain, look at him! It

:21:20.:21:30.
:21:30.:21:31.

you are inspired to get baking, you We both said, I want to try that.

:21:31.:21:35.

We are hoping when you see some people having a bake sale, you will

:21:35.:21:40.

say, I want to try that. If you do, you will be raising money for this

:21:40.:21:43.

year's appeal and supporting Children In Need. You are a good

:21:43.:21:48.

sport! For this year's appeal, we are teaming up with Children In

:21:48.:21:51.

Need to help provide money for children living with chronic

:21:51.:21:55.

illnesses in the UK. Loads of you from across the country have been

:21:55.:22:01.

getting involved. We went to this school near our new home in Salford,

:22:01.:22:04.

where preparation for the Bake A Difference bake sale are in full

:22:05.:22:11.

swing. We are baking cakes for Children In Need, because we need

:22:11.:22:19.

to Bake A Difference. We have 24 cakes with different flavours.

:22:19.:22:24.

made chocolate and strawberry flavoured capes. We are doing it so

:22:24.:22:34.
:22:34.:22:42.

children can have a better future. Save some of those for me! I wonder

:22:42.:22:52.

how many cakes they will add to the totaliser. We made 433 cakes in 15

:22:52.:23:01.

If you want to Bake A Difference for Children In Need, you will find

:23:01.:23:05.

all the information on the Blue Peter website. Go on, Bake A

:23:05.:23:15.
:23:15.:23:15.

Watching that makes me smile, and hopefully it will make you want to

:23:15.:23:20.

have a bake sale. Sorry about the egg thing. That is quite all right.

:23:20.:23:25.

Get yourself a mixing bowl and bake some stuff for us. It doesn't have

:23:25.:23:30.

to be eggs, you can bake anything. Sell it at your bake sale and make

:23:30.:23:34.

some money for Children In Need. Pizzas, sausage rolls, if you can

:23:34.:23:38.

bake it, you can sell it and make money for the appeal. I am sorry.

:23:38.:23:43.

He is never going to have an omelette again! Next week, the

:23:43.:23:46.

Liverpool football stars will be swapping a kicking for cooking as
