to keep up. On your Mark, just here. Stand there. But luck. -- good
luck. Yes! Well done, mate. That was good
considering he had no idea that was going to happen. 100% commitment!
How did he get on? He did really well. A big round of applause for
Barney! Well done. If you want to get involved for Children in Need
you can really do anything. It doesn't matter. Just get involved
and get fundraising. You will have seen me trying to put on a show of
my own which culminates in this, my final performance. Eight months ago
I was set one of my biggest Blue Peter challenges yet. Performing a
floor routine at the world gymnastics Championships in Glasgow.
I began by training with Olympic medallist Lewis Smith. And since
then I have been hitting the gym hard. I found out just what it takes
to become an elite gymnast. And how eating the right food can have a big
impact on performance. But now with only a few days to go, my coach Rob
really increases my training. Still a little bit floppy. A gymnastics
floor routine is a series of tumbles, strength and balance moves
performed in a fluid sequence on a 12 metre square floor. I will
perform for two and a half minutes and it will be made up of 12 moves
to test me to the limit. The individual moves is really tough,
but doing it in a sequence where I only get one chance to get it right
makes it so much harder. Let's get back to it. I will be pulling off
skills like the splits, cartwheels and handstands, which are difficult
enough, but my routine starts with a handspring. And finishes with a
front somersault, two of the hardest moves. And despite how many times I
tried, I have not landed them all perfectly. It is so frustrating! I
get one chance and if I mess it up it will set the scene for the entire
routine. I can't even think about that happening. It is the day before
my performance and I head up to Glasgow. I am starting to feel
really nervous now. I did not think I would but I really am. I have one
last chance to work out all of the things that are going wrong and how
to make it right. Bring on Glasgow and bring on the world gymnastics
championship. When I catch up with my coach while at the training hall
to practice my routine one last time. We are going to do a bit of
training with a couple of routines to get all of your nerds out so you
are fully prepared for tomorrow. Some of the best gymnasts in the
world are also putting in last-minute practice including Lewis
Smith. My first competition did not go to plan so if you mess up... The
Olympics next year! I am very tired. Good morning. Training yesterday
went OK, but I'm still not very confident when it comes to my
somersault or the handspring. I get one chance at this. It's time to do
it. For the very first time I get to see the actual floor that I will be
performing on, and now the size of my challenge really sinks in. I need
to stay focused, so I keep going through the routine over and over in
my head. In just a few hours' time, this place will be packed to the
rafters with spectators, some of the world's greatest gymnasts, and one
very, very nervous Blue Peter presenter. But before I do my final
preparations Rob has a bit of a treat. You have to perform with
style and look the part as well. I have a little surprise for you. My
very own Blue Peter leotard! Look at that. And in true Children in Need
style I have a matching cape and mask. It's time to see if I can be a
hero in front of 8000 people. This is it. I have do pull off 12
different moves including a handspring, cartwheel, the splits,
and two front somersault is. I have never done all of these moves
perfectly in a sequence but can I do them now? I have trained so hard and
given everything I've got, now is the time to just do it. Ladies and
gentlemen, representing Blue Peter, please welcome Radzi! Commentating
on my every move, Matt Baker and Beth Tweddle. All eyes in this arena
at an Radzi. I land a handspring! I can't believe it! That was a great
start, getting his nerves settled. Next it is my somersault. He went
further somersault and e-mail it. I'm really starting to enjoy this
now. -- he nails it. That did not quite go to plan. A little bit shaky
there. Come on, I still have a few moves to go. Look at that, backwards
roll into the splits. That's more like it. It is very easy to wobble
on this. He is holding it well. His final tumble. Here we go. Yes. He's
got it. Look at him! Look at that. He is lapping up the crowd. He is
pleased with that performance. That is a gold badge as far as I'm
concerned. I could not be more elated. I was so
nervous going into that. At the start I thought, go for it, go for
it. And it worked. I will take it. Get in! Well done. Rob, thank you.

Believe me, there are bits that you missed out that I may have messed
up! That was the best thing I have seen you do. You are awesome at
home, too. We want to say thank you for raising money for Children in
Need. Such a great effort. Look at our map, absolutely covered in your
spots. Well done, top banana. We love how creative you are and it
gives us a chance to decorate the studio as well. Thank you for
getting in touch. We did just promise that we would not just
decorate the studio, but we created a super-sized hero mask. Bring it
in, boys. We do not have time to thank all of you that we will give
it a go. In fact, I have a list. Can I borrow the list? We are going to
say thank you to Philip Baker Junior School, Oswald Road primary School.
You carry on doing that and I will do some masks. Elliott from
Stockport sent in this brilliant mask with little bits of yellow
tissue paper. And even a little band over Pudsey's I. Thank you. He is
doing a bake sale to raise money for Children in Need. Well done. And
Taylor from Salisbury has made this glitzy mask. She is going to be
donating her pocket money for Children in Need. That is a good
effort, isn't it? Lauren has made this one. She will be selling cakes.
Also St George 's primary school... He is still going. The money that
you raise for Children in Need is so important and a few weeks ago I went
to a special product -- project to find out why.
Last year, Children in Need raised over ?32 million. Thanks to your
generosity and incredible fundraising, we have been able to
help thousands of children, and I have come to Plymouth to meet some
of them. Hello, guys. Moving to the UK from a different country can be a
very scary experience, but this group has been setup to support
young people who done exactly that. Back-to-back, pony, side to side,
pony. Funded by Children in Need, this is a drama workshop to help to
form friendships and create confidence. Today, I have been
invited to join in. First, some warm up exercises. We have the magic
sweet, any flavour of your choice. We put it in and we start to chew.
It tastes good. I wanted to find out why this project is so important to
those who come here. Tastes like chocolate. Maryam Namazie Iraq four
years ago and Sarah moved from Syria when she was very young. What were
you like when you joined the group? I was shy. Why? Because I did not
know anyone. Has this helped you to make friends? Yes. There are many
reasons for people to move to a new country, for a job, to be closer to
family, or for a change. But some families are forced to move for
their own safety. You may have seen in the news recently many reports
about refugees moving across Europe, as they try to find a safer place to
live. For those that arrive in the UK, groups like this help young
people settle into their new communities. Do you love coming
here? Yes. Why is that? It helps with confidence and acting. Even if
you don't do acting much, it is fine. I like people and you can make
new friends. It is a great opportunity for young
people to be in a safe space for them to be themselves and explore
and grow in confidence. Meeting the group has really made me think about
how frightening and lonely it must be to move to a new country. It is
so important that projects like this are here to help. It is great to see
how your generous donations are helping change these young people's
lives. So this year, grab your cape and be a hero for Children in Need.
Let's take about. -- let's take a bow.
Thank you flitting me join in. It was great. We have asked you to be a
hero for Children in Need. We super-sized our mask, so why not
super-size a hero cape? We may have created the longest superhero cape
anywhere in the world and I am currently wearing it. Feast your
eyes. We are trying to set a world record. Greetings. How long does
this have to be to break the record? At least two metres wide and over 30
metres long. Well, to help us adjudicate, here is Anna from
Guiness World Records. What is the idea, to fold it out into the
corridor and you will tell us if it is long enough? Indeed. It is full
of spots, but it is to mimic the spots on Pudsey. They have been made
by Rainbows, Girl Guides and Brownies, and everyone is different.
They are beautiful. Where are you from? Leads Girl Guides. Your spot
is on here, is it a good one? Yes, it is really good. Loads more to get
through. 106 Girl Guides, Brownies and Rainbows took part. The Women's
Institute helps to sew it all together. 20 metres, two thirds of
the way there. Still a lot to get through. We are almost there. It is
lovely, spotty and yellow. I believe that is possibly a world record.
Remember, there are loads of spots. If you can't see yours, get on the
website and you might get a closer look. 40 metres. And the rest!
Incredible! Fingers crossed, Blue Peter have another world record.
Over to you. As mentioned, it needed to be over 30 metres for a new
Guiness World Records title. I can confirm that it is 44 metres and 27
centimetres! Brilliant. Thank you to everyone who got involved. Here with
their new single Wake Up, it is The Vamps. Where are we going to put
this? # That no one else can touch, my
dear # That no one else can touch, my
dear That's how to finish a show. It has
been a year since we saw you last. What have you been up to? Very busy
writing an album which is out on November 27, so we are excited about
that. And lots of touring. And November 27, so we are excited about
is next? We are back on the road, a world tour, and we are really
excited about it. Thank you so much for coming. Now, it has been a
pretty amazing year on Blue Peter but there are still loads to come.
Check this out. I make myself feel really sick. Stage two will bring
the country to its knees! Look at that!
How to park that? Are we nearly there? It is like the ultimate den.
As you can see, so much to look forward to. Thank you so much. That
is the end of our Children in Need special. Thank you to all of our
special guests. See you later. Goodbye!
