Ladies and gentlemen, today's show is about bakes,
Barlow and big badge news. BELL RINGS
Er, Radz, what are you wearing?
A wrestling outfit.
I think you should get changed.
Hello and welcome.
We're so excited because it's the first live Blue Peter of 2017.
-It's nice to be back.
-It's good to be back.
Now, there are two very good reasons why I was wearing wrestling Lycra
earlier and let me just tell you about that because,
if there's one thing I love, it's wrestling,
so please make absolute massive amounts of noise for
WWE announcers Michael Cole and Nigel McGuinness.
-What's up, guys?
-So good to see you.
-How are you?
-Really good, really good.
-Welcome to Blue Peter.
-Look how excited he is.
I'm excited too.
This is very, very special for me, I have to say this, by the way.
Michael, what brings you to the UK?
This weekend, Saturday and Sunday,
eight o'clock Greenwich meantime, WWE Network,
we are crowning the first-ever WWE United Kingdom Champion.
-But we have breaking news for you guys.
-Go on, go on.
First time ever seen anywhere in the entire world,
the brand-new United Kingdom Championship.
There it is, guys.
As they say in Blue Peter, here's one I made earlier.
How strong is your grip though, Nigel, cos Radzi is going
to try and take that from you within this interview, I would imagine.
-He can try.
-Can I hold it, please?
But you used to be a wrestler. You're now a commentator.
How was that transition?
A little bumpy at first, I'll be honest,
but now it's a dream come true, just like being on Blue Peter.
-Less bumpy than being in the ring, though, of course.
If we can utilise your announcing skills,
we do have a big announcement
-that we'd like you to make for us if that's possible.
-Are you ready?
-Go on, go for it.
From Salford, United Kingdom, weighing in at 2g...
The new, recycled blue badge!
-Have a look at that.
-There he goes.
-What an entrance.
That's right, that's a man covered in blue badges and the reason
for this is we are all wearing our brand-new blue badges.
Now, these are made from recycled plastic. They are so special.
But do not fear.
If you've got an old badge, you can still get into
over 200 attractions across the UK...
ALL: ..for free.
All the details you need are on the Blue Peter website.
-How cool is that? Just like the green badge now.
-Guys, would you be up for sticking around
-a little bit later on to do some announcing?
In which case, over to you lovely lot at home.
Jump onto the Blue Peter website and tell us what announcement
you'd like these legends to make. It can be anything. Be creative.
It really can be absolutely anything.
So maybe Mum says to you, "Boys, dinner's on the table."
How would that sound for you to announce it?
Boys, dinner's on the table!
While you're there leaving your comments as well,
don't forget to Spot Shelley.
You know she will appear somewhere throughout the show.
All you've got to do is spot her and the first person to get
in touch wins their own Chihuahua called Chiwee.
No, that's not right.
You guys are here which we're so excited about today, we're going
to play a little game, so let's walk this way for Clash Of The Clips.
This is going to be so exciting. Everyone get into your positions.
It's going to be Barney versus Radzi.
-Are you guys up for playing?
Now, Barney and Radzi,
don't get too excited but I want to show you what you could win today.
Have a look at this.
Not only could you be Clash Of The Clips champion...
-It's Badge Man!
-You could be taking this home. How amazing is that?
See, I've seen pictures on Radzi's wall of him wearing just a badge.
-I'm going to kick us off. You guys are ready, aren't you?
Michael and Nigel, I'm going to be showing you clips from 2016 on
Blue Peter. All the fun we've been up to.
Barney and Radzi aren't going to see these clips...
It's going to be hard, this.
..so it's going to be up to you to commentate to do your best to
describe what's going on so that they can each try and win a point.
Barney, Radz, if you think you know what's going on
from the descriptions, buzz in as quick as you can but...
but it's worth saying you've only got one try at this.
If you get it wrong, it will be passed to the other player.
Please tell me you understand cos I'm really tired.
-No, could you say all that again?
-No, I can't.
I only remember that bit. OK. Are you ready?
Let's play Clash Of The Clips.
# Row, row, row your boat
-# Gently down the stream... #
-I'm going for the obvious tin bath race.
Barney, you got a point. OK, next clip.
People that know you, Nigel, they will understand this because
this is something that is sort of your second hobby.
They are wrapping a woman in a red curtain.
People who don't know me will have no idea at all but, nonetheless,
-she is lying on a table...
-We had a magician on the show, didn't we,
who made Lindsey levitate?
Jamie Raven. Well done. Next clip, let's have a look.
Now, this I've been looking at all day and I think we're in
Jurassic Park right now.
-I mean, this is like...
That was the thing where, Barney,
you went into a special place in Dundee... It had...
-Wrong, wrong, wrong, wrong.
-No, Radz, no.
There is a big, big, like, spike and a hammer and what is...?
-Chipping away and we see inside for the first time.
-Any idea, Barney?
What is it? It's dark, it's calcified, perhaps.
-There is a fossil.
-It was the excavation of the Mary Rose that Radzi did.
Next clip, this is awesome.
Er, why is this woman hanging upside down 100 feet in the air?
-Flying through the...
Surely it's got to be the bungee jump from the triathlon.
-Keep going, guys.
-Flying through the air.
-Crop-dusting, I believe.
-Wind through the hair.
This is the only time Blue Peter presenters have passed
-the baton in the wing-walking challenge.
Best day of mine and Radzi's life. OK, next one.
This is one of the greatest competitions in mankind's history.
-It takes, well, teamwork, Nigel.
Put your hands together and pull as hard as you can.
Oh, Radzi, have a go.
-I've lost all my instincts but it's got to be tug-of-war.
At the end of that... The score is 3-1 to Barney!
I bet you're happy about that. How are you feeling?
I genuinely am really happy about that but
can I just say, because I love him so much, I know that he wants it.
-You will wear this better than anybody.
-Look at his little face.
-He's got the body for it.
I might have lost but it doesn't matter, I've got the belt!
How fun was that to see what we got up to on Blue Peter last year?
-What a year you guys had. I man, it was incredible.
-Going to be watching?
-What a fantastic 2016, 100%, yeah.
-OK, watch every ep in 2017, please.
-Do you know what...?
The way we ended 2016 was awesome and it was with something
very special about the sport badge. Take a look at this.
Last year, over 10,000 of you applied for a Blue Peter sport badge
and one of those, Oscar, got to be on the judging panel for
Young Sports Personality Of The Year.
I think it might be hard to pick out of the two because you can't
really let one win because they are both very similar.
They narrowed down the finalists to a top three.
A few weeks later the winner was announced.
She'll be in Birmingham for Sports Personality Of The Year 2016
and that's exactly where Oscar and I are heading.
It's just 24 hours until
one of the biggest dates in the sporting calendar.
Rehearsals are very much under way and I'm here with Oscar.
-You all right?
-I am all right and we're going to be finding out
just what it takes to put on this sporting super-sized spectacular.
And what are you up to?
I'll be meeting some massive sporting stars and have
a go at some of this TV presenting.
Oscar, you nailed that link.
I don't see how you make presenting look that hard, Radzi.
'This arena is huge!
'It's fascinating to watch every detail of the live show being
'rehearsed, but Oscar gets to do more than just watch.'
There he is. Off he goes.
'He actually gets on stage.'
world, for this amazing trophy.
Mate, you've just been on stage,
you've actually been on the Sports Personality stage and held a trophy.
It's a very heavy trophy.
'We know that Oscar one day dreams of becoming a sports broadcaster,
'so who better to talk to than Clare Balding and Gabby Logan?'
-You are two of the most top sport presenters.
Do you have any tips how I can make my way to the top to be like you?
You have to have a very good short-term memory, actually,
-to be fair.
-Do you have a good short-term memory?
-I think so.
-What are our names again?
-Gabby and Clare.
-No, other way round.
You have a great job and what are the coolest things about being
a sport presenter?
We're very, very privileged to be in some of those great arenas
and those great moments and be able to speak to those people in the
heat of battle. You know, they've just finished their moment
and we get to stick a microphone
under their nose and ask them the questions.
It's like taking an exam in your favourite subject every
single day and I quite like that.
Thanks so much for answering all my questions. See you tomorrow, then.
-Can I keep this? Do I get to keep this?
'Of course you do, Gabby.'
Good evening and welcome to the BBC Sports Personality of the Year 2016.
'As the show begins, Oscar and I head backstage to interview some of
'our sporting heroes and find out
'what Sports Personality means to them.'
It's a really special occasion because it celebrates, you know,
all the fantastic British sport, but also for us as athletes to be
able to see our other fellow athletes.
Normally when we go to events, we're all paraded around as the
Olympian, which is nice, but it's also nice to go to an event and sort
of feel normal and be surrounded by people in the same job as us.
Do you have any advice for the people watching out here?
I think the best piece of advice is to just work incredibly hard
and be focused on what it is that you want to do.
It's incredibly difficult to become the best in the world at something,
but it's all about having that ambition
and being prepared to work hard.
'Between them, these guys have won countless medals and championships,
'but there's one thing they all want to get their hands on.'
-Do I get a Blue Peter badge?
-Would you want a Blue Peter badge?
I've always wanted a Blue Peter badge.
Well, the thing is, you have to do something to earn a badge.
Have I done NOTHING to earn a badge?
-We think you've earned your own badge.
I'm going to cry!
Thank you so much. Can I give you a hug?
Oh, bless you.
I think my two gold medals in two different sports is pretty up there.
-I think that I'm deserving.
-Hello. There you go.
I love Blue Peter.
'Oscar is loving interviewing the stars
'and he's learning from the best.'
-You're the perfect man to speak to.
-Why is that?
Because, Oscar, what do you want to do when you're older?
Er...I want to be a sport,
-a sport presenter.
Oscar, you're on the wrong side of the carpet.
Oscar, get in here. There you go. Just like that.
-Oscar, you are a sports presenter. How does it feel?
'We even spot an absolute sporting legend - Michael Phelps!'
The greatest Olympic athlete ever in the history of the world. Ever.
Think of an Olympian, he's greater than him.
Phelps receives the Lifetime Achievement award from
His Royal Highness the Duke of Cambridge.
Many, many congratulations and hopefully your retirement
-gives someone else a chance now.
And Young Sports Personality Ellie gets her moment in the spotlight.
It's really surprising to win this award,
especially because I was up against some amazing athletes on the way.
Just thank you to everyone that's played
a part in my swimming and just helped me to win this.
Then all that's left is to reveal the night's big winner.
And the BBC sports personality of the year 2016 is Andy Murray.
An incredible end to 2016 for world number one Andy Murray.
It's been an amazing year for British sport and I'm very proud
to be a part of it, so thank you and I hope you all have a great night.
'And the perfect end to what has been
'an unbelievable experience for Oscar.
'I'm sure this won't be the last time he rubs shoulders with
'sporting superstars.' High five.
'And it just goes to show you never know where applying for
'a Blue Peter badge can take you.'
And that's a wrap.
What an award show,
what a performance from Oscar and what a way to finish 2016 and
if you're thinking 2017 can't be any better, well, check this out.
This year, Blue Peter is going to be bigger than ever. How big?
How about a competition involving the year's biggest sporting
event and two incredible judges?
Or an epic joke challenge with the help from one of the biggest
comedians on the planet?
Have you ever heard the one about
the manager who's got an orange for a head?
'There'll be sporting icons...'
That was just a practice shot.
-Let's do this!
-'..showbiz, more of you.
-'There'll even be Gary Barlow!'
-RADZI DOES VOCAL EXERCISE
And trust me, that's just the start of it.
-So much to look forward to in 2017.
Just like this very special Red Nose Day competition,
-which you can already take part in.
We want you to come up with three hilarious, rib-tickling jokes.
-Is that a rib tickle?
That wasn't rib-tickling. They've got to be up to you.
You've got to make us LOL and we've got three very special judges,
two of them include Miranda Hart, the amazing comedian,
as well as creator of Comic Relief Richard Curtis.
How great are those two?
What a leg-end that man is.
If you want to get involved, head to the BBC website
to download an application form.
The competition winner will have the chance to have their joke
-read out on a Red Nose Day Blue Peter special.
-It's so cool.
Head to the website and download this application form if you
want to be involved. Make us LOL as Lindsey would say.
Or you can make it really easy for yourself and tell a teacher,
so they can apply for this pack right here and that way your
-whole class can get involved.
-That's awesome. Do you know what, guys?
-I absolutely love a competition.
-Do you know what I love more?
-This week's big badge wall.
-How good was that link?
-It was OK.
We're joined by Nigel and Michael again. Guys, can you do the honours?
Use your amazing voices to explain this week's big badge wall.
I found Shelley, so I get a prize, right? Look at this.
This is incredible, isn't it?
Beautiful Blue Peter ship there, sailing off into the distance.
Very well drawn.
And there's Shelley once again and I love on the left-hand side,
look at the two kids that look like they have UFO eyes. They're aliens.
-That's you two looking at your best there.
-Yeah, it really is.
Well, I've got to draw some attention to Malik from Dewsbury,
-who's made this incredible picture, using cubism, of Lindsey.
No idea how you've done it, Malik, but you are, I think, a genius.
Barney, would you like to model the next bit of post, please?
-I would love to, darling.
-This is from Mary from Gloucestershire.
-Look at the talent and the time that's gone into this.
She's sewed together a little apron for Barney Harwood here.
-How perfect is that?
-I've got a little pouch for my joey as well.
If I was a kangaroo, that is. OK. Good.
Boys, what do you think the recycled Blue Peter badges are made out of?
-I know. Shark teeth.
-It's not shark teeth, no. Any ideas?
-I was going to go with baby teeth.
-It's not baby teeth either.
They're easy to collect, aren't they? No, it's actually yoghurt pots
mostly, which gave me a bit of inspiration for this week's
Blue Peter make. Take a look at these.
-How good are they?
-Look at those.
-They're called Blue Peter bakes.
They're designed around the badge and they're called bakes -
-not quite biscuits and not quite cakes.
-Did you come up with that?
-No, they did, I'm just saying it and
making myself look like I know what I'm doing.
So obviously you've got the main ingredients in there which
-are very important, Radzi, which would be...
Yoghurt. If you follow me over here, I'll show you how to make them.
They're really simple. Take a look at the ingredient list.
These are all the things that you're going to need.
Plain flour, baking powder, bicarbonate of soda,
pinch of salt, caster sugar, egg white, 200g of yoghurt,
zest from one lemon, vanilla extract,
blueberries, fresh or frozen -
it don't really matter, mate - and kitchen foil.
I'm whizzing through this to show you,
but you can go to the Blue Peter website and find
everything that you need on there. So first things first,
we're going to do our dry mix and when
we're putting our dry mix in the oven... In the oven?
In a bowl, we need to make sure that our oven is at 190,
that's the temperature these are going to cook in.
So that's our flour, our bicarb of soda,
our baking powder and our salt. Dry mix done, it's that easy.
Put it over to one side. Now we're going to do our wet mix.
Now we need an egg white, which means we need to get the yolk
out of the white and at the moment, they're both in the same shell.
So what we do is we give it a little crack on one bowl and then very,
very gently, you want to make sure the bigger half is at the bottom
and you can see there the egg white just flying out, but the yolk isn't.
What you want to do is just gently juggle the yolk from one shell
to the other and as you're doing that,
the white will fall out into the bowl below.
Now, don't throw the yolk away, you might need to use that for
a cake if you're making one later on, but don't waste food.
OK, now we need to get a towel and wipe my whitey fingers.
And then whisk the egg white in a bowl.
It doesn't need to be too whisked, we're not making a meringue here,
we're just making a nice frothy, bubbly mess.
That'll do nicely and then we add everything else.
We've got our sugar.
We've got half a teaspoon of vanilla extract, or a little bit more
if your name is Barney Harwood, because you know you like vanilla.
Lemon zest, in it goes, and then we're going to chuck in our yoghurt.
Honestly, I know I talk about this every time I do a make,
but I really wish we had smelly vision.
We've got to get someone to work on that, it smells so good, this.
Then what we do is give it a good old whisk.
That's our wet mix.
And then we're going to put our dry into our wet.
Don't put the wet into the dry, because it'll go all lumpy
and nobody wants that in their life.
OK. Good old whisk.
And once you've done that for about nine years, it looks like this.
Now, you're after a really big, sticky, gloopy mess.
It's supposed to look like that and then once you've got your mix,
you want to put it into your Blue Peter badge-shaped moulds.
Now, you can't buy those, but this is Blue Peter.
We can make them and if you head online to where you found the
ingredients, you'll see a masterclass.
It's basically me folding tinfoil to show you how to make those shapes.
It's very easy to do and, of course, you have to do that before
you do the next step, which is to put our mex, our MIX
inside our moulds.
So you want one heaped teaspoon.
One teaspoon isn't enough, by the way. You need to have two teaspoons
to do this and make sure it's really heaped. OK.
See, I'm an expert at this, aren't I? OK. Good.
There we go, right in the middle.
Now, before this, I've buttered the sides of the moulds, because
we don't want our bake to stick.
It's really that simple. Now, when you're making the moulds,
make sure that these bits here are not too tight together,
because you want the biscuit to spread out when it cooks.
If I lift that up, does that help?
Can you see in there? You want it to fill these bits up here as well.
Finishing touches before it goes into the oven,
take your blueberries and just place them in there.
Dead simple. OK, so our oven is now at 190.
We're going to place our tray in.
Don't forget, ovens are hot.
I know that you know this, but you should always use an oven mitt
or an oven glove if you're taking things out of an oven.
And once those bakes have been in there for 10-15 minutes,
they go nice and brown, and then they're ready for eating.
Radzi, Lindsey, you know this bit.
-You can try those ones if you want, just there.
-They look nice, OK.
All the ingredients and everything you need is on the
-Blue Peter website, go and check it out, it's that easy.
-They're nice, aren't they?
-I found those out the back this morning.
-I have a question.
Don't talk with your mouth full.
I'm sorry, my mum would be disgraced at my behaviour.
OK, did you watch the BBC One show Let It Shine at the weekend?
-I went and met Gary Barlow, didn't I?
-Did a Blue Peter film. Auditioned for Gary Barlow and everything.
Let's have a look at this. Finish your mouthful. Swallow it.
I'm here in Media City, Salford to see behind the scenes of one
of the biggest shows of 2017.
It's Let It Shine.
For the next few months,
Let It Shine is the only place to be on a Saturday night.
The show is on the hunt for a boyband to perform
in a brand-new musical.
And it's fronted by entertainment royalty - Mr Gary Barlow.
So Let It Shine are now midway through filming,
and they've pretty much taken over the studios here.
But we're going to get a sneak peek.
(Don't say anything!)
But Gary isn't alone,
he's joined by all-star judges Martin Kemp,
and Dannii Minogue
to help whittle down the contestants into a five-piece band.
This is where Gary and the judges will be sat,
casting their opinion on the people they see.
And it's all presented by
Bake Off's Mel Giedroyc and Graham Norton.
I completely don't remember what you asked me!
It's the same old thing - he sang, what do you think?
It's got me thinking...judges,
a talent show,
I wonder if I've got what it takes?
I hope I have.
They don't call me the Wolverhampton Warbler for nothing.
If I'm going to meet Gary Barlow,
I want to show him some of my singing skills.
Who knows - maybe he could pick me for the Let It Shine band?
-# Low, low, low, low, low. #
Come on, Radzi. Come on, Radzi.
Think Gary Barlow.
See Gary Barlow.
Be Gary Barlow.
I don't know if I can do this.
-Are you OK? You seem a bit down.
-I am down, Graham.
I don't think I can do this. I can't impress Gary Barlow.
Don't forget, you have a number one single under your belt.
Children In Need, two years ago.
Mel's right! I do have a number one single.
In a way.
Have a word with yourself, young man. What is that?
-That is a Blue Peter badge, and that is a passport to greatness.
Gary Barlow. I can do this!
Bring it on!
-Hasn't a hope.
-Gary Barlow's going to be absolutely foul, isn't he?
-Hate him, hate him!
It's now or never, Radzi.
He might have sold over 50 million records, but has one of the
most famous men in British pop music ever heard anything like me before?
OK, this is it, I'm going to meet the Barlow,
-and I'm going to sing to him. Gary, hi!
-How you doing?
-# Lovely to meet you... #
# Because we are here... #
-Just having a bit of quiet time in here.
-# Yes... #
-Shall we just do an interview?
Yeah, that probably could have gone better.
Maybe I've not got what it takes to be on the show.
But Gary is more than happy to help me work on my voice.
If ever you're up early, and you've got that low voice thing, you know?
Go as high as you can, do that. Now.
It really warms your voice up.
So, Let It Shine, what's it all about?
It's all about making a band.
We're making a band who will eventually be in a musical.
But, before they get there,
they're going to be competing against other bands in our show.
And what are you looking for with those bands,
to make the actual show?
We're looking for great singers, great movers, great performers.
Great acting. And stamina.
And people who can work as a team.
And when you list all those things,
-that's quite a job list, right there.
But that's what our contestants need to have.
# I got the eye of the tiger
# A fighter, dancing through the fire
# And I am a champion
# And you're going to hear me... #
Are there any other things that people at home should tune in for?
The main thing, obviously, because I'm on it.
But, other than that...
We do have an amazing judge line-up.
We've got Dannii, we've got Martin Kemp,
we've have a whole selection of guest judges as well,
and guests on our show.
You've got me very excited for it. Gary, thank you very much.
You're very welcome, very welcome.
What a special TV series.
Well, how about a TV series special?
Do you see what I did there?
Match Of The Day Kickabout have done just that
in the form of the world's best footballer, Cristiano Ronaldo.
If you like him, you're going to love this.
This is Santo Antonio, and this is where the story starts.
John, it's amazing!
Chance for Cristiano Ronaldo!
This is where Ronaldo first kicked off his football career.
It's been inspiring, it's been amazing.
It really will be special.
Make sure you watch that at 7:45 on Saturday morning.
-Now, Cristiano Ron-ah-oh...
-What's his name, sorry?
-I don't know what his name is.
It's a number of vowels.
Cristiano Ronaldo might be one of the greatest footballers of
all time, but John Farnworth, essentially is,
in football freestyling.
And if you jump onto the website, you can see him
showing you how you...he... Do you know what?
Blimey O'Reilly! Just go onto the website, essentially.
Right, listen up, everyone, it's time to focus,
because earlier in the show we asked you to get in touch with us,
and let us know what you would like these legends to read out.
We said it could be anything.
Guys, have we got some good ones there?
Beige Athletic Bear -
"I like to dress up as an Egyptian mummy and do ballroom dancing!"
And this is from Sebbo -
"I want a custard pie in my face!"
Beautiful. How about Pink Sparkly Football -
"I wish I could fly in the sky and eat a pie,
"wearing a yellow-and-blue striped tie!"
-Yeah, a poem!
-You guys are so good at this. Carry on, please!
This is from Amethyst Bright Starfruit -
"I wish I was a pink fairy made of glitter."
-That would go down so well in a wrestling ring.
Can we get just a copy of that clip? That's perfect.
Let's do Spot Shelley, shall we?
Because, for the first time ever, nobody has spotted Shelley.
Now, a lot of people have said she was on the badge wall.
That was what Michael said, but that wasn't the real Shelley.
Shelley was actually right here, on Nigel's headset.
Look how small she is! In fairness, she is really tiny.
For once, I think we won Spot Shelley, that means.
-That means we've got the prizes!
Don't leave me hanging on live TV.
-Thank you very much...
-I'll give you a high one.
That's just about all we have time for today,
but make sure you're jumping straight onto the fan club
as soon as the show's over with Michael and Nigel and ask them any
wrestling questions your heart desires.
-Guys, do you know what a listicle is?
Me neither, but we've got one online,
telling you all about the things that happen in January.
-So go and add to it.
-Next week is a purple badge show,
