# Rocking around the Christmas tree

6:59:096:59:11

# Have a happy... #

6:59:116:59:12

All right, cockers, it's Christmas time.

6:59:126:59:14

As an early Christmas gift, I am your entertainment,

6:59:146:59:17

-you lucky people!

-Erm, Hacks...

-Yes!

6:59:176:59:19

RECORD SCRATCH

6:59:196:59:20

-What happened?

-This is our Christmas show, not yours.

6:59:206:59:23

So there's no Hacker's Karaoke Classics

6:59:236:59:24

-or meat paste Chrimbo dinner?

-Nope.

-Well, never mind.

6:59:246:59:27

Let's get the party started, cockers.

6:59:276:59:29

Play the theme music!

6:59:296:59:31

-I've no thumbs, I can't work it.

-I'll do it.

6:59:316:59:33

-Hello!

-Hello! He-llo!

6:59:516:59:55

And welcome to live Blue Peter, and just look at the place.

6:59:556:59:59

How good does it look?!

6:59:597:00:00

THEY CHEER

7:00:007:00:02

-Also, feast your eyes upon our advent crown...

-Aww.

7:00:027:00:06

The last candle has been lit,

7:00:067:00:07

which can mean only one thing - it is our Christmas extravaganza!

7:00:077:00:10

-Plus!

-Oh, here we go. Everyone ready?

-Bit special, here.

-Yeah?

7:00:107:00:14

Go for it, Radz.

7:00:147:00:15

-Whoa!

-I've got lights on my jumper!

7:00:157:00:17

That must mean that Christmas has officially started.

7:00:197:00:22

There's such a good atmosphere in here.

7:00:227:00:24

If you're not feeling super-Christmassy, you will soon,

7:00:247:00:26

because this show is more stuffed than a turkey on Christmas day.

7:00:267:00:30

-Good analogy, Linds.

-Yes. Thanks.

7:00:307:00:31

We have over 300 choir singers warming up their voices.

7:00:317:00:35

-Where are they? There they are!

-There they are.

-Hey, guys!

7:00:357:00:37

Ready for a good old Christmas singsong later on.

7:00:377:00:39

And how excited are we to have a singsong?!

7:00:397:00:41

THEY CHEER

7:00:417:00:43

I love it!

7:00:437:00:44

-This is so much fun. I wish it was Christmas every day.

-Yeah!

7:00:447:00:47

As well as that, we're going to have some VIPs in the studio.

7:00:477:00:50

A hint - one of them is a four-legged friend

7:00:507:00:52

that we love very much.

7:00:527:00:54

-(Yeah, I know).

-Hacker.

7:00:547:00:55

Let's also talk about the unsung hero of the Christmas dinner.

7:00:557:00:59

I am, of course, talking about the Brussels sprout.

7:00:597:01:01

Here is Barney and myself doing a little challenge.

7:01:017:01:04

-That's all I'm going to say. It's a little challenge.

-We like that.

7:01:047:01:07

-Oh, lovely sprouts, there, Radz.

-Thank you.

7:01:077:01:09

And the best thing about today's fantastic show...

7:01:097:01:12

it's Hacker's Christmas Quiz.

7:01:127:01:14

-Go wild!

-Ey-ohhhh!

7:01:147:01:16

DOORBELL RINGS

7:01:197:01:20

-Oh, who's that?

-Someone's at our door.

7:01:207:01:22

-Must be our first guest.

-Let's see, who is it? Excuse me, guys.

7:01:227:01:24

Who's here? Come on in!

7:01:247:01:26

Come on in!

7:01:267:01:27

Heeey!

7:01:277:01:29

Merry Christmas.

7:01:317:01:32

It's none other than Guinness World Record Adjudicator, Sofia.

7:01:327:01:35

-Thank you for coming in. What do you have here?

-I'm so excited.

7:01:357:01:38

-Well, I've got a special gift for you.

-Now, this gift looks like...

7:01:387:01:41

It's in certificate form.

7:01:417:01:43

Hello, what does this mean?

7:01:437:01:45

So, as today is your 59th Christmas special episode,

7:01:457:01:49

Blue Peter have been awarded the Guinness World Record title

7:01:497:01:52

for "the most consecutive Christmas specials

7:01:527:01:54

"aired annually by a TV show".

7:01:547:01:56

Congratulations!

7:01:567:01:58

CHEERING

7:01:587:02:00

-Sofia, thank you.

-Sofia, thank you very much. I'm happy.

7:02:027:02:06

I'm very excited. We're very happy.

7:02:067:02:08

-Are you happy to stick around for a singsong later?

-Of course I am.

7:02:087:02:10

Please do. The show's just started, we've already got a world record.

7:02:107:02:13

I think it's time that I went to a galaxy far, far away

7:02:137:02:15

for the new Star Wars adventure.

7:02:157:02:17

I'm happy!

7:02:177:02:19

A major weapons test is imminent,

7:02:227:02:23

and we need to know what it is and how to destroy it.

7:02:237:02:26

Is that clear?

7:02:297:02:31

Yes, sir.

7:02:317:02:33

Set shortly before the events of the original Star Wars film,

7:02:337:02:37

Rogue One reveals how the Rebellion got their hands

7:02:377:02:39

on the designs for the Death Star.

7:02:397:02:42

I've come to meet star of the film Felicity Jones

7:02:427:02:45

and Hollywood legend Forest Whitaker to find out more.

7:02:457:02:48

-Felicity, great to meet you.

-Hi.

7:02:487:02:50

And thank you for being on Blue Peter for us today.

7:02:507:02:52

-No, I was a

-huge

-fan of Blue Peter growing up,

7:02:527:02:55

so this is quite a big moment.

7:02:557:02:57

-Well, maybe, if you behave, you might get a badge later.

-Great.

-OK?

7:02:577:03:00

Oh, please, I would love one.

7:03:007:03:01

In the meantime, for any of our viewers who don't know,

7:03:017:03:04

is this the latest film in the Star Wars series?

7:03:047:03:07

It is, yes. We are very much part of the entire sequence of Star Wars.

7:03:077:03:11

We kind of slot in just before A New Hope,

7:03:117:03:16

which was one of the early films that came out in the '70s.

7:03:167:03:20

They are requesting a call sign.

7:03:207:03:22

It's, um... Rogue.

7:03:227:03:25

Rogue One.

7:03:257:03:26

Let's talk a bit about your character in the new Star Wars.

7:03:267:03:29

Is he a goodie or a baddie? It's kind of tough to work him out.

7:03:297:03:32

He's a rebel fighter that thinks that they're building

7:03:327:03:35

a weapon that can harm and destroy the universe, or destroy people.

7:03:357:03:38

And ultimately his philosophy of doing it by any means necessary,

7:03:387:03:41

no matter what it costs for him to do it,

7:03:417:03:44

that makes him move into a grey area.

7:03:447:03:46

If you continue to fight...

7:03:467:03:47

..what will you become?

7:03:527:03:55

For a bit of festive fun, we've got a quiz that will test

7:03:577:03:59

Felicity and Forest's Star Wars and Christmas knowledge.

7:03:597:04:03

I'm going to call the game Pudding Or Planet,

7:04:047:04:07

and you've got to answer me a question about either

7:04:077:04:09

Star Wars if it's a planet, or just about Christmas if it's a pudding.

7:04:097:04:12

-Right. What do I do, just open one of the doors?

-Choose a number. Yeah.

7:04:127:04:16

-She's gone for seven.

-Seven.

7:04:167:04:18

It's a planet. OK.

7:04:187:04:20

"What colour is Luke Skywalker's lightsaber in Return Of The Jedi?"

7:04:207:04:25

Er... Pink?

7:04:257:04:28

Red?

7:04:287:04:29

Wrong. Both wrong. It was green.

7:04:297:04:30

SHE LAUGHS

7:04:307:04:32

It is a pudding.

7:04:327:04:33

So, your question is,

7:04:337:04:34

"What colour are the berries of the mistletoe plant?"

7:04:347:04:38

Red.

7:04:387:04:39

-They're white.

-Oh, OK.

7:04:397:04:41

I tell you what, can you do, for two points,

7:04:417:04:44

an impression of Darth Vader?

7:04:447:04:46

SHE BREATHES LIKE DARTH VADER

7:04:467:04:48

Oh, Felicity did this, too. Can you do an impression of Darth Vader?

7:04:517:04:55

HE BREATHES LIKE DARTH VADER

7:04:557:04:57

Nice. Nice deep breathing.

7:04:577:04:59

Listen, it's Christmas time, I'm feeling festive, OK, Felicity.

7:04:597:05:02

-You have earned yourself...

-I've got a sympathy badge. Thank you.

7:05:027:05:05

-You've got a badge. You've earned it. Well done.

-Oh, lovely.

7:05:057:05:07

-Thank you very much.

-And congrats on a great film.

-Thank you.

7:05:077:05:10

-You know, I will work hard to really earn this badge.

-There you go.

7:05:107:05:15

You've got yourself a Blue Peter badge, Forest, thank you so much.

7:05:157:05:17

Thanks a lot. All right.

7:05:177:05:20

Are you with me?

7:05:207:05:21

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

7:05:257:05:28

How good does that look?

7:05:287:05:30

Guys, put your hands up if you want to see the new Star Wars.

7:05:307:05:33

-ALL:

-Me!

7:05:337:05:34

OK, there we go. DOORBELL RINGS

7:05:347:05:36

Oh, there's someone else at the door.

7:05:367:05:37

-There's someone at the door, cocker.

-Come on, let's answer it.

7:05:377:05:40

Who is here? Come on in?

7:05:407:05:41

Oh, it's our favourite, Callum and Iggy!

7:05:417:05:44

-Good to see you both.

-And you.

-I have missed you a lot on Blue Peter.

7:05:477:05:50

-Aww, it's good to be back.

-How have you both been getting on?

7:05:507:05:52

-Fill us in. What's your news?

-Really well. We've been...

7:05:527:05:55

-So many more routes learned since you last saw us...

-Good.

7:05:557:05:58

We've been going out and about. We're everywhere.

7:05:587:06:00

-There's no stopping us.

-Aww, we love it. It's a little dream team here.

7:06:007:06:03

It's Iggy. All right, Iggy, I've missed you. Have you missed me?

7:06:037:06:06

She's always like that. Silent treatment, that one.

7:06:087:06:11

-A little bit awkward. Callum...

-She hasn't talked to me since Lent.

7:06:117:06:14

OK, good.

7:06:147:06:15

Callum, seeing as Hacker is such a fan of you and Iggy,

7:06:157:06:18

-would you like to stick around for our festive quiz later on?

-Yes.

7:06:187:06:21

-Sounds good.

-Iggy, would you like to stick around?

7:06:217:06:24

-Typical response from that one.

-Yeah.

-OK. Fine.

7:06:247:06:26

We'll see you a little bit later on. In the meantime, Radz...

7:06:267:06:30

I think it's fair to say that Christmas doesn't officially start

7:06:317:06:34

until you can watch Chitty Chitty Bang Bang

7:06:347:06:36

on your televisions.

7:06:367:06:38

So, I'm with Wilbraham Primary School

7:06:387:06:39

to do just that and watch this classic musical.

7:06:397:06:43

-What an unusual car!

-Daddy made it.

-It's called Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.

7:06:437:06:47

Oh, well. That's a curious name for a motor car.

7:06:477:06:50

But that's the sound it makes. Listen.

7:08:197:08:21

Jason Manford and his co-stars from Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.

7:08:247:08:27

That was awesome.

7:08:277:08:29

By the way, is this the actual car from 1968?

7:08:297:08:32

It is indeed. One of six that was used in the movie.

7:08:327:08:34

We are very privileged to have it here.

7:08:347:08:35

And Jason, how has the entire thing been for you?

7:08:357:08:37

Oh, I mean, it's amazing,

7:08:377:08:38

I mean, I get to work with professional actors like Charlotte

7:08:387:08:42

and Jacob and Ty and it's in a great theatre at The Lowry.

7:08:427:08:46

We're there for another five weeks and then two weeks in Bristol

7:08:467:08:48

and then we pop the car in the garage.

7:08:487:08:51

And Jacob and Ty, you're in year seven and year five.

7:08:517:08:53

How much are you enjoying this?

7:08:537:08:55

-It's really fun.

-It's amazing.

7:08:557:08:56

Thank you for performing and good luck with the rest of the tour.

7:08:567:08:59

-ALL:

-Thank you.

7:08:597:09:01

Uh-oh. I'm a bit worried,

7:09:017:09:02

because I'm going to be singing that song all day. Who else is? Yeah.

7:09:027:09:05

DOORBELL RINGS

7:09:057:09:06

-Oh, the doorbell. Radz, go answer the door.

-Jumpers back on!

7:09:067:09:09

It is the myth, it is the legend...

7:09:127:09:14

I even hit your foot and you carried on...

7:09:147:09:16

The world's greatest football freestyler, John Farnworth.

7:09:167:09:18

-How are you?

-Merry Christmas.

-Merry Christmas.

7:09:187:09:20

-What are you up to this Christmas, lots of Kickabout stuff?

-Yes.

7:09:207:09:23

I'm going to be watching a lot of football.

7:09:237:09:24

-There's so many fixtures, as you know, at Christmas.

-Yes.

7:09:247:09:27

I think the stand-out fixture, really, is Liverpool, Man City.

7:09:277:09:29

-OK.

-But, as you know, Radz, I'm a Man United fan.

-You are.

7:09:297:09:33

MIX OF CHEERING AND BOOING

7:09:337:09:35

We'll not hold it against you.

7:09:357:09:37

And we play Sunderland on Boxing Day,

7:09:377:09:38

-so I'm going to be watching that game.

-I'm looking forward to that.

7:09:387:09:41

-Not going to lie to you - hope they lose, but...

-OK!

7:09:417:09:44

-Match Of The Day Kickabout, Ronaldo Special.

-Yes.

7:09:447:09:46

14th of January, put it in your diary.

7:09:467:09:48

We went over to visit Ronaldo's family and figure out

7:09:487:09:50

why he's so good at his skills and tricks, so, guys,

7:09:507:09:53

-make sure you're there to watch that.

-He's almost as good as you.

7:09:537:09:55

But, John, this looks like our... Is it a gift?

7:09:557:09:58

It is. It's for you.

7:09:587:10:01

Look at that! Blimey O'Riley!

7:10:017:10:02

I know what this is, it's easy. It's a...

7:10:027:10:04

pair of shin pads.

7:10:047:10:05

Here we go, John. This will go to Linds now.

7:10:057:10:07

Oh, no! I messed it...

7:10:077:10:09

I messed it up. It went better in rehearsals.

7:10:097:10:11

Radz, you need a bit of practice.

7:10:117:10:12

Have a look at this week's Big Badge Wall to cheer you up.

7:10:127:10:15

There is so much amazing, festive post.

7:10:157:10:17

Look at that, all looking sparkly. There's a lot of santas...

7:10:177:10:20

-How festive is it, cocker?

-Have a look at... What did you say, Hacks?

7:10:207:10:23

-How festive is it?

-Really.

-It's festive, isn't it?

7:10:237:10:26

It is. Have a look at this. It's from Jasmine, from Carlisle.

7:10:267:10:30

She's sent in this amazing...

7:10:307:10:31

It's like a collage of all the BP presenters past and present.

7:10:317:10:35

-Where's John Noakes?

-Well, he's not there, but...

Iggy is, at the top.

7:10:387:10:40

There's Iggy up there, as silent as ever, cocker.

7:10:407:10:43

And look at this little beauty, there. Decorated Christmas bauble.

7:10:437:10:46

It's been sent in by Katie, that has,

7:10:467:10:48

age 10, from Nottingham!

7:10:487:10:50

-We love that.

-It's good, isn't it?

7:10:507:10:53

It is very, very good.

7:10:537:10:54

Another thing that's good is the 2016 Blue Peter Christmas card.

7:10:547:10:58

Feast your eyes on what Julia made of it.

7:10:587:11:00

Not only did she do it, she did it immediately, as soon as I did it,

7:11:007:11:02

and a much better job. Julia - awesome job.

7:11:027:11:05

This is amazing post, thank you so much.

7:11:057:11:07

Please keep it coming in. We absolutely love it.

7:11:097:11:10

Someone else is at the door. I'll run and get this one.

7:11:107:11:12

Let's go this way. Who is it?

7:11:127:11:15

It's Maddie Ziegler!

7:11:157:11:17

Maddie! Come on over!

7:11:197:11:21

-And can I just say, the crowd has gone wild...

-Thank you.

7:11:217:11:24

..because you are the biggest actor/dancer that I think there's

7:11:247:11:26

-ever been in the BP studio.

-Thank you.

-So, welcome.

7:11:267:11:28

Is this your first Blue Peter badge?

7:11:287:11:30

-It is. I'm so excited about it.

-I bet. You're very proud of that.

7:11:307:11:33

Tell me why you're here. It's not just to have a dance and say hello,

7:11:337:11:36

-is it?

-No. I am here to tell you guys a little bit about

7:11:367:11:39

-my animated film, Ballerina.

-Please tell me more cos I've seen it.

7:11:397:11:42

So, for those who haven't yet, tell us a little bit about it,

7:11:427:11:45

-and about your character.

-Yes.

7:11:457:11:47

There's a little girl named Felicie and her best friend Victor,

7:11:477:11:50

and they both want to pursue their dreams, and they both go to Paris.

7:11:507:11:53

Ooh.

7:11:537:11:54

-Yes, and they meet me along the way, and her name's Camille...

-Mh-hm.

7:11:547:11:58

..and I'm the little, like, snotty ballerina...

7:11:587:12:00

She's not the nicest character, is she?

7:12:007:12:02

No, but she knows she's the best, so that's why she's kind of mean.

7:12:027:12:05

-I like that!

-And there's little bumps in the road,

7:12:057:12:08

but Felicie does...

7:12:087:12:11

-We can't give it away! Don't say anything.

-I know!

7:12:117:12:13

-I'll tell you what, let's have a look at a clip.

-OK.

-Have a look.

7:12:137:12:15

What's that? Have you stolen something from me?

7:12:167:12:19

-No.

-Show me.

-Er...

7:12:197:12:21

-What is it?

-It's mine, and it's precious.

-Are you anything like your character?

-Nothing at all.

7:16:087:16:11

All right, listen... Lindsey's team have got...

7:16:117:16:17

Radzi, talk about one of your festive children,

7:16:177:16:20

let's see if you can get some bonus points.

7:16:207:16:23

OK, so here we have what you call the epitome of Christmas right here.

7:16:237:16:26

This person could not have any more decorations...

7:16:267:16:28

There's quite literally nothing left in the box,

7:16:287:16:30

-we've won automatically, surely?

-And, Lindsey, show me your

7:16:307:16:33

-festive urchin.

-I don't know about you, but have a look at this -

7:16:337:16:36

just move to the side of me, birthday girl,

7:16:367:16:38

we love it - do a spin, we've got tinsel of all the colours,

7:16:387:16:40

every single bauble imaginable...

7:16:407:16:42

I will tell you this...

7:16:427:16:44

Move out of me shot.

7:16:447:16:46

You're in the... That's it, cheers, Radz.

7:16:467:16:49

It is live. Cheer up!

7:16:497:16:51

The bonus points are going to go to Radzi...

7:16:517:16:54

That means Radzi's team wins!

7:16:547:16:56

CHEERING

7:16:567:16:58

Hacker, what do they win?

7:17:037:17:05

-Hacker? Do you know what I love at Christmas?

-What?

7:17:057:17:08

-A good sprout.

-Sadly, there is no prize money

7:17:087:17:11

cos I lent it to Barney Harwood, I've not seen him since,

7:17:117:17:13

so instead you've got a video about sprouts - cheer up!

7:17:137:17:17

Mate, I love Christmas, it is my favourite time of year.

7:17:187:17:20

Christmas dinners, though, even better.

7:17:207:17:22

Roast potatoes, crispy roast potatoes, cranberry, turkey...

7:17:227:17:25

You missed one out, the best ingredient on the plate

7:17:257:17:28

at Christmas... Sprouts.

7:17:287:17:30

Huh?

7:17:317:17:33

# It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas... #

7:17:337:17:37

Brussels sprouts - we've been eating them

7:17:377:17:39

for more than 400 years

7:17:397:17:41

and they are an essential part of Christmas dinner.

7:17:417:17:45

To find out how they end up on our tables at this time of year,

7:17:457:17:49

we've come to Berwickshire, to the biggest sprout farm in Europe!

7:17:497:17:53

I haven't seen this many sprouts in real life ever.

7:17:537:17:56

-It's a huge area, isn't it?

-It is, it's a very big area.

7:17:567:17:59

So, how many parts of Scotland have you covered in sprout?

7:17:597:18:02

-We've covered 900 acres in Scotland this year in sprouts.

-Wow!

7:18:027:18:05

And how many sprouts are we talking about here?

7:18:057:18:08

12.5 million plants and that's going

7:18:087:18:10

to generate about 700 million sprouts.

7:18:107:18:12

Wow-ow-how-how!

7:18:127:18:15

This place is huge!

7:18:157:18:17

And we're going to find out how they produce millions

7:18:177:18:20

of sprouts all in time for Christmas.

7:18:207:18:22

Tell you what, why don't you stay here? Cos this field

7:18:237:18:26

is off the charts and I'll go in the nice warm factory.

7:18:267:18:28

Yeah, great idea, I'll stay out here in the cold.

7:18:287:18:31

There's a theme happening here. Excuse me a sec. Radz...?

7:18:317:18:35

At one time, all these sprouts would have been picked by hand.

7:18:357:18:38

Now, though, machines share the load.

7:18:387:18:42

This looks like a serious piece of kit.

7:18:427:18:44

-So what is it we're actually doing?

-We're going along the rows...

7:18:447:18:47

-We're cutting the sprout at the bottom...

-Yeah.

7:18:477:18:49

And the lads are picking them up and putting them through

7:18:497:18:51

the stripping head. What that does is it strips

7:18:517:18:54

the sprouts from the stalk, so then we can take them to the factory.

7:18:547:18:57

All right, boys, my go.

7:18:577:18:59

In just a matter of seconds, this harvester takes the sprout plant,

7:18:597:19:04

chops it up and separates the little green balls we know and love.

7:19:047:19:08

These guys actually make it look very easy,

7:19:087:19:11

but it's actually quite hard to do.

7:19:117:19:13

It's amazing how technology can make things...

7:19:137:19:16

so much easier.

7:19:167:19:18

So, while I'm doing this down here, let's see how

7:19:187:19:21

Radzi is getting on in the factory.

7:19:217:19:22

Once picked, the sprouts head to a factory,

7:19:277:19:30

where they are tested to make sure they are good enough

7:19:307:19:33

to be sent all around the country.

7:19:337:19:35

So, we're going to get them put through our grading line,

7:19:367:19:40

to check out the size of the sprouts.

7:19:407:19:42

And we've got an amazing machine that's going to check out whether

7:19:427:19:45

they've got any little marks on them, any blemishes.

7:19:457:19:47

And the machine will kick those out right away.

7:19:477:19:50

After that, they come down the line and we're going to check what size

7:19:507:19:53

the sprouts are. We've got these rollers which are checking out

7:19:537:19:56

how big the sprouts are. And then that splits them up

7:19:567:20:00

into different sizes of sprouts, OK? We then get them

7:20:007:20:03

coming down onto the production lines, where we've got

7:20:037:20:05

a few extra people just to do the final check and then

7:20:057:20:08

it's ready to go into a pack, basically.

7:20:087:20:11

Only the most perfect sprouts will do

7:20:127:20:14

for the most important dinner of the year.

7:20:147:20:16

So I think I need to keep my eye

7:20:167:20:18

on some of these. You're welcome, Great Britain.

7:20:187:20:21

What do we think about this? Is that OK?

7:20:227:20:24

This one here... I think there might have been a little pest

7:20:247:20:27

that might have had a little nibble at this one.

7:20:277:20:30

So we're going to get rid of that, as well. Good one, yeah.

7:20:307:20:34

There are just so many sprouts.

7:20:347:20:36

All I can see is green, all I can see is Brussels sprouts.

7:20:367:20:39

And all I can think about is Christmas.

7:20:397:20:42

Think about this a little like Strictly Come Dancing,

7:20:427:20:45

only the very best make it all the way to Christmas.

7:20:457:20:49

So here we have the final product in a pack, ready to eat,

7:20:497:20:53

-there you go.

-Thank you very much indeed.

7:20:537:20:55

So that is how Brussels sprouts go from the field to your dinner table.

7:20:557:20:59

What a lovely informative day!

7:21:007:21:02

But it doesn't end there.

7:21:047:21:06

Because we're not leaving without a Christmas Challenge.

7:21:077:21:11

Barney and I will be going head-to-head to see

7:21:117:21:14

who can pick the most sprouts in just 30 seconds.

7:21:147:21:17

No machines, it will all be done by hand.

7:21:177:21:20

-The prize is a crown.

-Yes!

-Wow, look at that, it's a sprout crown.

7:21:217:21:24

-Barney, do you want one?

-I... I'm not too sure.

7:21:247:21:27

-Let's get started. In three, two, one...

-Go!

-Go!

7:21:277:21:31

There we go.

7:21:347:21:36

This one's quite hard.

7:21:377:21:40

-Radz, how long have we got?

-I think we've got about five seconds left.

7:21:407:21:44

-I hope you haven't eaten any sprouts.

-No, I haven't eaten any.

7:21:447:21:47

Time's up.

7:21:477:21:49

-Barney?

-What?

-That was so difficult.

7:21:497:21:51

I feel like I was doing that for ages, what's the time?

7:21:517:21:53

-The time?

-Yeah.

-Erm... It is about a quarter past four...

7:21:537:21:57

But there can only be one sprout king!

7:22:017:22:03

-Radzi, you're the champion.

-Thank you very much, sir. Oh, yes!

7:22:057:22:09

Only one thing for it. Slow-mo celebration.

7:22:097:22:12

So when you sit down to tuck into your Brussels sprouts

7:22:127:22:16

on Christmas Day, spare a thought for the amazing effort

7:22:167:22:20

that goes into getting them from field to fork.

7:22:207:22:23

Did you spot Shelley in amongst those Brussels sprouts?

7:22:257:22:27

Well, congratulations to Pink Sparkly Bunny, who was the very

7:22:277:22:31

first person to follow the clues online and find out where Shelley

7:22:317:22:34

has disappeared to. Now, Christmas on Blue Peter isn't all about

7:22:347:22:37

a massive Christmas tree or an amazingly decorated studio,

7:22:377:22:39

it's also about a 50-year-old Nativity scene

7:22:397:22:43

which you can see right here. Because Christmas is

7:22:437:22:46

all about celebrating the birth of Jesus, who Christians,

7:22:467:22:49

like myself, believe to be the Son of God.

7:22:497:22:52

And in our Nativity scene here, we can see Jesus' parents

7:22:527:22:55

Mary and Joseph. We can also see the animals who live in the stable.

7:22:557:22:59

We've got the shepherds who followed the star of Bethlehem to Jesus.

7:22:597:23:04

We have the Three Wise Men who carried their gifts

7:23:047:23:06

of gold, frankincense and myrrh. And the most important of them all -

7:23:067:23:11

baby Jesus, who goes right there.

7:23:117:23:14

And I hope Jesus is very comfortable.

7:23:147:23:16

In fact, I hope all of you, no matter what you're doing

7:23:167:23:18

to celebrate this festive season, you have a happy and healthy one.

7:23:187:23:22

-Radz, that's made me feel really festive.

-It has.

7:23:227:23:25

That's nearly it for 2016, so I think we should

7:23:257:23:27

look forward to what's coming up in 2017. You're going to love this.

7:23:277:23:30

Let's do it!

7:23:307:23:33

Christmas and New Year - a time for Blue Peter

7:23:337:23:36

to take it easy, look back and reflect on what we've done.

7:23:367:23:40

Or not!

7:23:407:23:42

Because 2017 is going to be bigger than ever. How big?

7:23:427:23:47

How about a competition involving the year's biggest sporting event

7:23:477:23:51

and two incredible judges? Or an epic joke challenge

7:23:517:23:56

with help from one of the biggest comedians on the planet?

7:23:567:24:00

There will be sporting icons...

7:24:007:24:03

Food, showbiz, more of you!

7:24:037:24:06

There'll even be Gary Barlow!

7:24:067:24:08

-Brrrrlll!

-Very good.

7:24:087:24:10

Phew. You'll need a holiday after all that.

7:24:137:24:16

There's so much to look forward to, cannot wait for it.

7:24:177:24:20

But now it's time for one of my favourite moments

7:24:207:24:22

of the year - we're going to sing a carol around the Christmas tree.

7:24:227:24:25

We're going to be singing O Come, All Ye Faithful.

7:24:257:24:27

And if you know the words, join in at home.

7:24:277:24:28

We can actually hear you, it's a very special ear I've got.

7:24:287:24:31

That's right. There's lots of people here,

7:24:317:24:33

as you can see, we're joined by St Anne's Church of England,

7:24:337:24:35

Button Lane and the Beaver Road primary schools.

7:24:357:24:38

As well as that, Manley Park, St Philip's Roman Catholic,

7:24:387:24:40

Thorn Grove Primary School and Lostock Cottage...

7:24:407:24:43

College, even! It's not a house!

7:24:437:24:45

And of course, helping them out, we've got the BBC North Staff Choir

7:24:457:24:49

and Central North Salvation Army Band

7:24:497:24:51

and I think I can hear them coming now.

7:24:517:24:53

Let's do this.

7:24:537:24:54

MUSIC PLAYING: O Come, All Ye Faithful

We'll carry on singing in just a second,

7:26:287:26:30

but not before we say a happy and healthy Christmas

7:26:307:26:33

to each and every single one of you who are watching at home.

7:26:337:26:36

The next Blue Peter is going to be on December the 29th,

7:26:367:26:38

we can't wait for that, we're looking back

7:26:387:26:40

at all of our highlights from 2016 and as well as that,

7:26:407:26:44

the show after will be on the 5th of January,

7:26:447:26:46

where we are flying high in a number of ways.

7:26:467:26:49

It's going to be awesome, make sure you join us for the very first

7:26:497:26:52

live show back in the studio on the 12th of January, be there!

7:26:527:26:55

That's right. As well as that, don't forget

7:26:557:26:57

that over the Christmas holidays, there is so much to do

7:26:577:26:59

on the Blue Peter website and on the Fan Club -

7:26:597:27:01

there's friends to make, there's loads to make and do.

7:27:017:27:04

And if you log on after the show, there's a quiz

7:27:047:27:06

about Maddie Ziegler, we cannot wait.

7:27:067:27:08

But from all of use here...

7:27:087:27:10

All together now, a very...

7:27:107:27:11

ALL: MERRY CHRISTMAS!

7:27:117:27:13
