And THAT is how you kick off a Christmas special.

7:31:587:32:00

Give it up for Boogie Stars!

7:32:007:32:02

CHEERING

7:32:027:32:05

Thanks so much.

7:32:057:32:06

And the festive force is still strong on today's show.

7:32:067:32:08

Here's what's coming up.

7:32:087:32:10

There's loads on today's show,

7:32:117:32:13

and we decorate a VERY special Christmas tree indeed.

7:32:137:32:17

Yes, that's the Prime Minister.

7:32:177:32:18

Yes, it happened.

7:32:187:32:20

We make a special delivery

7:32:207:32:21

to the winner of our Worst Witch competition.

7:32:217:32:23

-I'm dressed as Santa!

-You are!

7:32:237:32:24

Look at your little tiptoes.

7:32:247:32:26

And we get some VIP guests to the BP studio. Yeah, that also happened.

7:32:267:32:31

It's been a big week, hasn't it, Rads?

7:32:317:32:33

-It really has. But Linds...

-Yeah.

-..we're on the studio floor.

7:32:337:32:35

Blue Peter, make some noise!

7:32:357:32:37

SCREAMING

7:32:387:32:41

These guys are going crazy because we are having a Christmas party,

7:32:417:32:46

and if I come this way, we've got some very special guests.

7:32:467:32:49

-Hello, Rhys.

-Hello, Lindsey.

7:32:497:32:51

-I can barely hear you, everyone's so excited.

-I know, it's my team.

7:32:517:32:54

-Are you excited for today?

-Oh, so excited! Definitely.

7:32:547:32:57

-What are you looking forward to?

-Singing with the choir!

7:32:577:32:59

Ah! It's going to be good. Have we warmed up our voices?

7:32:597:33:01

-Yes, we have. Guys, are we ready?

-So let's hear a note.

-3, 2, 1...

7:33:017:33:04

ALL: Ahhh!

7:33:047:33:06

-OK.

-There we go.

7:33:067:33:07

-You guys were great.

-Good.

7:33:077:33:09

Rhys, maybe mime later. I love you, but mime. Radz?

7:33:097:33:12

Linds, I'm with Tyler and Ben.

7:33:127:33:14

What's Christmas got in store for you?

7:33:147:33:16

Well, we have a Jamie Johnson exclusive,

7:33:167:33:18

-which is very, very exciting.

-And the 12 footy facts of Christmas.

7:33:187:33:21

Which sounds like a song.

7:33:217:33:22

# 12 footy facts of Christmas! #

7:33:227:33:24

I will be watching, gents. Linds?

7:33:247:33:26

I've got some very special guests.

7:33:267:33:28

Look who's here, guys, it's Callum and Iggy.

7:33:287:33:31

CHEERING

7:33:317:33:32

Callum, thank you so much for coming in today. Iggy is wagging her tail.

7:33:337:33:36

Will she be on Christmas? Have you got her a present?

7:33:367:33:39

-I can't let her hear it.

-Oh, can't let her hear, OK.

7:33:397:33:42

She's got a load of squeaky toys.

7:33:427:33:43

OK, squeaky toys, it's going to be a surprise. We love it.

7:33:437:33:46

Happy Christmas, Iggs. We're expecting one more guest.

7:33:467:33:48

He doesn't need an introduction, he's so great,

7:33:487:33:50

but he's getting one anyway. Watch this.

7:33:507:33:52

CHEERING

7:34:067:34:09

Yeah!

7:34:097:34:11

Here he comes, Tom Fletcher is here.

7:34:117:34:15

-Come on over, Tom.

-Hi.

-Come and join Callum and Iggy.

7:34:157:34:18

-You've met them backstage.

-Yes, we've been hanging out.

7:34:187:34:21

-How are you doing?

-We're great, how are you?

7:34:217:34:23

Because you must love this time of year, don't you?

7:34:237:34:25

I love Christmas more than anyone, apart from maybe Santa.

7:34:257:34:29

-There's Santa, then me.

-So, what have you been up to?

7:34:297:34:32

-Because you are a busy man, aren't you?

-I am, yeah.

7:34:327:34:34

Well, I've written a Christmas book called The Christmasaurus

7:34:347:34:37

and we're actually putting it on as a live stage show in London

7:34:377:34:40

this Christmas, starting next week, and I'm in it,

7:34:407:34:42

my wife's in it, my sister's in it, my bandmates from McFly

7:34:427:34:45

and Busted are in it, and Santa himself is in the show.

7:34:457:34:49

-No, Santa makes an appearance?

-Santa is there,

7:34:497:34:52

-singing some Christmas songs with a flying dinosaur.

-What?

7:34:527:34:55

-That sounds amazing.

-Nothing says Christmas like a flying dinosaur.

7:34:557:34:58

Thanks for coming in today. You're also singing for us,

7:34:587:35:01

and there is a web chat after the show, as well,

7:35:017:35:03

so if you want to get to Fan Club Live, make sure you do it.

7:35:037:35:06

-You could ask Tom anything.

-Whatever you want.

7:35:067:35:08

Whatever you want - but make it about Christmas, cos that's fun

7:35:087:35:11

and you'll love it.

7:35:117:35:12

We've had so many fab guests in the studio today,

7:35:127:35:15

but just last week, we had two VIPs.

7:35:157:35:18

And when I see VIPs, I mean it. Check this out.

7:35:187:35:20

Last week, Blue Peter was visited by royalty.

7:35:247:35:28

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge

7:35:287:35:29

were given a tour of our home in Salford.

7:35:297:35:32

Your Royal Highness, nice to meet you, welcome to Blue Peter Studio.

7:35:327:35:36

After meeting a few of the team,

7:35:367:35:37

they got to see some of your incredible post.

7:35:377:35:41

And they loved it.

7:35:417:35:42

It's so creative, isn't it? All the different sort of ideas.

7:35:427:35:45

-There's some really good drawings, as well.

-Yeah.

7:35:457:35:48

They even met some fans of the show.

7:35:487:35:50

Mandy here.

7:35:507:35:52

-And what are these ones here?

-These are sport badges.

7:35:527:35:56

-From each year.

-Wow.

7:35:567:35:57

So you are really committed, aren't you?

7:35:577:36:00

It was such an honour to meet the Duke and Duchess.

7:36:007:36:03

-Did you ever get a Blue Peter badge?

-No, never.

-I don't think I did.

7:36:037:36:06

I should have, I should have entered.

7:36:067:36:09

And we wanted to recognise their work for a very important cause.

7:36:097:36:14

We'd like to give you a gift,

7:36:147:36:15

which is the most special gift that we have,

7:36:157:36:17

and it's for doing something very special,

7:36:177:36:20

and that special thing is mental health.

7:36:207:36:22

I think you guys have inspired so many people,

7:36:227:36:25

so many children across the country to be able to speak their minds,

7:36:257:36:27

but also to know that they are going to be listened to

7:36:277:36:30

and that that's OK.

7:36:307:36:32

So, on behalf of everyone here on Blue Peter,

7:36:327:36:34

we'd actually like to award you with our highest accolade.

7:36:347:36:38

It is the gold Blue Peter badge, for your Royal Highnesses.

7:36:387:36:41

-Thank you very much.

-Thank you very, very much.

7:36:417:36:45

-Congratulations.

-Congratulations.

7:36:457:36:47

-Thank you so much.

-That's very kind.

-Congratulations.

7:36:477:36:51

Wow, that's amazing, thank you. So we have won a badge!

7:36:517:36:54

Yes!

7:36:547:36:56

It's hugely special, thank you so much -

7:36:567:36:58

and obviously mental health has been sort of a learning process for us,

7:36:587:37:01

too, and that's really why we are trying to get everyone

7:37:017:37:04

talking about it, so it hasn't got the stigma that it has had.

7:37:047:37:07

We've still got a long way to go yet but we are getting there.

7:37:077:37:10

The momentum is changing, the shift is happening,

7:37:107:37:12

which is really good, and we have hopefully cracked a problem

7:37:127:37:14

that should have been cracked a long time ago.

7:37:147:37:16

There is somebody else you might know with one of those,

7:37:167:37:19

it might be your grandmother.

7:37:197:37:20

Oh, really? We'll compare.

7:37:207:37:22

-We've got a lot more work to do, I think.

-Absolutely.

7:37:227:37:24

But thank you so much, it's a real honour.

7:37:247:37:26

Thank you for coming into the Blue Peter Studio.

7:37:267:37:29

-Thank you so much.

-A round of applause.

7:37:297:37:31

APPLAUSE

7:37:317:37:34

Congratulations to the Duke and Duchess on their BP Gold badge.

7:37:367:37:40

Now, another rare badge is this, the Blue Peter orange badge.

7:37:407:37:44

You get one of these for entering a Blue Peter competition,

7:37:447:37:46

which over 9,000 of you have done

7:37:467:37:48

with our brand-new Worst Witch competition,

7:37:487:37:50

where you stood to win all of this here. Look at it!

7:37:507:37:52

Oh, it's all gone.

7:37:527:37:54

For a very good reason, people, because I have already delivered it.

7:37:547:37:57

I've come to surprise the winner in person, who, by the way,

7:37:597:38:02

has no idea that I'm here.

7:38:027:38:05

Luckily, I have the perfect disguise for this time of year.

7:38:057:38:09

Father Christmas would have been better, mate.

7:38:147:38:17

Father Christmas would have been better.

7:38:187:38:20

Thankfully, I've got that with me, too.

7:38:217:38:24

Anyway, our winner thinks this is just a normal day at school,

7:38:257:38:30

so as the pupils head into assembly,

7:38:307:38:32

I use all my stealth to get into position for the surprise.

7:38:327:38:36

-HE WHISPERS:

-The winner of our competition

7:38:397:38:41

is just inside this door.

7:38:417:38:42

I'm going to surprise her with the prizes. Let's go.

7:38:427:38:45

Ho, ho, ho! Ho, ho, ho!

7:38:517:38:54

THEY SING

7:38:547:38:56

Ho, ho, ho, Merry Christmas, everybody!

7:38:567:39:01

Are we all good?

7:39:017:39:02

ALL: Yes!

7:39:027:39:04

Who here thinks I'm the real Father Christmas?

7:39:047:39:07

Oh, you are so kind - but I'm not, you know.

7:39:087:39:12

My name is Radzi and I work on a show called Blue Peter.

7:39:127:39:18

We held a competition and the winner is in this school.

7:39:187:39:23

Can we give a big, massive round of applause to Poppy?

7:39:237:39:28

CHEERING

7:39:287:39:31

Come on in, Poppy!

7:39:317:39:33

Here she comes.

7:39:337:39:35

Poppy, high five.

7:39:377:39:39

You are the winner of the Blue Peter Worst Witch competition

7:39:397:39:42

and you get a very special Blue Peter badge, the orange badge.

7:39:427:39:47

So can we have one big,

7:39:477:39:49

massive round of applause once again for Poppy?

7:39:497:39:52

-Here you go.

-CHEERING

7:39:527:39:55

Well done.

7:39:557:39:56

And Poppy will also be taking home loads of Worst Witch goodies

7:39:587:40:02

that I picked up from the set.

7:40:027:40:03

What do you love most about the worst witch?

7:40:057:40:07

I like Maud and I think I look like her

7:40:077:40:09

because of the way I have my hair and the glasses.

7:40:097:40:12

So this is the actual broomstick from the Worst Witch.

7:40:127:40:16

It is yours.

7:40:167:40:18

-It's very heavy.

-It is, isn't it?

7:40:207:40:22

But the broom is just the start of Poppy's prizes.

7:40:237:40:26

Poppy, have you ever entered a Blue Peter competition before?

7:40:287:40:31

No, only this one.

7:40:317:40:33

Just this one, which is exactly why you should always apply.

7:40:337:40:37

Because you never know,

7:40:377:40:38

I might arrive at your school to congratulate you as the next winner

7:40:387:40:42

of our brand-new Blue Peter competition.

7:40:427:40:44

A lovely school - and what a worthy winner she was indeed.

7:40:487:40:52

Please make sure you watch The Worst Witch in the new year

7:40:527:40:55

-on CBBC, right there beneath us.

-That's a very clever of you.

7:40:557:40:57

Earlier, you saw what the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge

7:40:577:41:00

made of your post.

7:41:007:41:01

Quite frankly, they loved it.

7:41:017:41:03

So some other people might love it.

7:41:037:41:05

Look who's lining up, all of our guests today at our Christmas party.

7:41:057:41:08

Linds, we're going to do it really quick

7:41:087:41:10

-cos I've got this glittery haily thing.

-OK.

7:41:107:41:12

-Are you ready?

-Yeah.

-I'm going to start on my left.

7:41:127:41:15

Three, two, one, Callum! What have you got?

7:41:157:41:17

Ffion from Hertfordshire has made this fantastic pom-pom wreath.

7:41:177:41:20

Tom, talk to me.

7:41:207:41:22

Emily from Skegness gets a silver Blue Peter badge

7:41:227:41:24

because she has made an advent calendar with real presents in.

7:41:247:41:26

-Incredible.

-And behind door number 24 is the golden...

7:41:267:41:30

-You can keep that, Tom Fletcher.

-I'm going to keep that.

7:41:307:41:32

-Next, Linds.

-Who's next? Come on.

7:41:327:41:34

James from Lancashire has Shelley dressed as Father Christmas.

7:41:347:41:37

-Classic. Off you go.

-Next!

7:41:377:41:39

Well, Eden from Aberdeen has drawn Radzi, Shelley and Mildred

7:41:397:41:43

-outside Miss Cackle's Academy for Witches.

-That was fast!

7:41:437:41:46

-That was so fast.

-Isla from Cambridge has a hedgehog home

7:41:467:41:49

-for the Blue Peter garden. How cool is that?

-It's very cool.

7:41:497:41:51

Bye, Ben, I love you. Santa, good of you to show up.

7:41:517:41:54

Ava-Grace has made that wonderful Christmas card

7:41:547:41:57

with Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer on it. Very well done to you.

7:41:577:42:00

HONK!

7:42:007:42:01

-I love you so much.

-That's all we've got time for.

7:42:017:42:03

That is all we've got time for.

7:42:037:42:05

Keep your post coming to the usual address.

7:42:057:42:07

-We love receiving it, don't we, Santa?

-We certainly do.

-Because...

7:42:077:42:09

# You may earn a badge

7:42:097:42:11

# That can get you into 200 attractions

7:42:117:42:14

# Across the UK for free. #

7:42:147:42:18

I love you. Something else that I love is the Blue Peter website.

7:42:197:42:22

Check out what's on it. Thanks, Santa.

7:42:227:42:25

Yeah!

7:42:277:42:28

Happy dance, happy days.

7:42:287:42:30

Do you see yourself in these pictures?

7:42:307:42:33

Yes, in the statue. Right here.

7:42:337:42:34

Right here on the beach. Right here behind the lady.

7:42:347:42:37

Oh, man!

7:42:377:42:38

That was tough. That was very fun, though.

7:42:387:42:40

-Linds, John Cena just did the happy dance.

-Do it again.

7:42:497:42:53

OK, now it's time for something very special -

7:42:537:42:56

a song so heart-warming, so festive it could melt a snowman, officially.

7:42:567:43:00

It's Tom Fletcher with the amazing I Ho, Ho, Hope It's Santa!

7:43:007:43:03

Ho, ho, ho!

7:43:087:43:10

Merry Christmas, everyone!

7:43:107:43:12

Here we go!

7:43:147:43:16

# I heard a noise on the rooftop

7:43:227:43:24

# It made my heart go jump

7:43:247:43:27

# The stomp of boots

7:43:277:43:29

# And the clomp of hooves

7:43:297:43:31

# Went clippety, clippety, clump!

7:43:317:43:33

# Oh, I heard a noise on the rooftop

7:43:337:43:36

# I wonder what it was

7:43:367:43:39

# I really ho, ho, hope it's Santa Claus

7:43:397:43:44

# Oh, I heard a noise on the rooftop

7:43:457:43:48

# It sounded like a sleigh

7:43:487:43:51

# I went to bed on Christmas Eve

7:43:517:43:54

# And now it's Christmas Day

7:43:547:43:56

# Oh, I heard a noise on the rooftop

7:43:567:44:00

# I wonder what it was

7:44:007:44:03

# I really ho, ho, hope it's Santa Claus

7:44:037:44:06

# All the sleigh bells that go jingle

7:44:087:44:11

# Are making that jingle noise

7:44:117:44:14

# And the man they call Kris Kringle

7:44:147:44:17

# He's bringing us lots of toys

7:44:177:44:20

# Oh, I heard a noise on the rooftop

7:44:207:44:23

# Now I can't sleep because

7:44:237:44:26

# I really ho, ho, hope it's Santa Claus... #

7:44:267:44:31

Let's go, boys!

7:44:317:44:32

# All the sleigh bells that go jingle

7:44:557:44:58

# Are making that jingle noise

7:44:587:45:01

# And the man they call Kris Kringle

7:45:017:45:04

# He's bringing us lots of toys

7:45:047:45:07

# Oh, I heard a noise on the rooftop

7:45:077:45:10

# Now I can't sleep because

7:45:107:45:13

# I really ho, ho, hope it's Santa Claus

7:45:137:45:18

# Yeah

7:45:187:45:19

# I heard a noise on the rooftop

7:45:197:45:22

# Now I can't sleep because

7:45:227:45:25

# I really ho, ho, hope it's Santa

7:45:257:45:28

# Ho, ho, ho, ho, hope it's Santa

7:45:287:45:31

# Really ho, ho, hope it's Santa Claus! #

7:45:317:45:39

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

7:45:407:45:43

That was so good!

7:45:467:45:47

That is what you call smashing it out of the park.

7:45:477:45:50

-Who here feels really Christmassy?

-Me! Do you feel Christmassy?

7:45:507:45:54

Yes, good. We actually did the same for the Prime Minister.

7:45:547:45:59

Don't believe us? Check this out.

7:45:597:46:01

Farmers have travelled from the furthest corners of the UK.

7:46:037:46:06

It's been a decade growing the perfect specimen -

7:46:067:46:09

and no, I'm not talking about giant vegetables,

7:46:097:46:12

I'm talking about Christmas trees.

7:46:127:46:13

And not just any old tree - oh, no, the most high-profile

7:46:137:46:17

and iconic tree in the country.

7:46:177:46:19

I'm talking about the tree outside one of the most

7:46:217:46:24

important addresses anywhere.

7:46:247:46:26

That's right, Number Ten Downing Street,

7:46:277:46:29

the home of the Prime Minister.

7:46:297:46:31

It's a tree seen by people all over the world,

7:46:337:46:35

and the journey to get there starts in Yorkshire,

7:46:357:46:38

where the country's best growers gather

7:46:387:46:40

to be awarded the honour of growing the Downing Street tree.

7:46:407:46:44

It's a bit like The X Factor, but with trees.

7:46:447:46:47

I'm meeting one of the organisers, Martin,

7:46:497:46:51

and I have come dressed for the occasion.

7:46:517:46:54

-Hello, Martin.

-Hello, Lindsey.

-I'm ready.

-For what?

7:46:567:46:59

-Decorating the tree.

-Whoa, whoa - too early, Lindsey.

7:46:597:47:03

-The trees have a long, long way to go yet.

-Right.

7:47:037:47:06

-Shall I go get changed?

-I think you ought to. Don't rush.

7:47:067:47:09

OK. I feel a bit silly.

7:47:097:47:11

-Sorry about that, a bit embarrassed.

-No problem.

7:47:137:47:15

Anyway, how do you grow one of these little beauties?

7:47:157:47:17

You start with a little sapling like that, at three years old...

7:47:177:47:20

Hang on a minute, this kind of twig, that took three years?

7:47:207:47:25

Three years from a seed, yes, to get to that size.

7:47:257:47:27

-It's not a fast process, is it?

-It's very slow, no.

7:47:277:47:30

It will take eight years to get from that

7:47:307:47:31

-to the tree that you will get in your house.

-Eight years.

7:47:317:47:34

Eight years, it's a long process.

7:47:347:47:36

I had no idea the process was quite that long -

7:47:367:47:38

and what do you think makes the perfect tree?

7:47:387:47:40

What shall I be looking out for today?

7:47:407:47:42

It depends what you like, we all like different things,

7:47:427:47:44

but I personally like a nice, full Christmas tree.

7:47:447:47:46

We've also got the colour of the tree

7:47:467:47:48

and fragrance of the tree as well.

7:47:487:47:50

The competition has been running since 1982.

7:47:537:47:56

Those on display aren't the actual trees

7:47:567:47:58

that will go to Downing Street,

7:47:587:48:00

but they demonstrate the farmers' growing skills.

7:48:007:48:03

Everyone here gets a voting slip and on that, they pick which tree

7:48:047:48:07

they think is the best in each variety,

7:48:077:48:09

and then after that, they pick which tree they think is best overall.

7:48:097:48:13

And because I'm here today, I get to vote, too.

7:48:147:48:17

Strong pine, very good.

7:48:207:48:21

Yeah, this one's spruced up nicely.

7:48:247:48:26

Yeah, I think it's clear I don't know my Nordmann Fir

7:48:277:48:30

from my Norway Spruce.

7:48:307:48:32

In fact, I don't even know what those words mean.

7:48:327:48:34

Thankfully, Jack here knows a thing or two and he'll also be voting.

7:48:347:48:38

-Hey, Jack, how are you?

-No looking at my sheet.

7:48:397:48:42

OK, no, you're right, I won't look at your voting slip.

7:48:427:48:44

-You've been voting hard, haven't you?

-Yes.

7:48:447:48:46

So, have you entered any trees today?

7:48:467:48:48

-Yeah, I'm here with my uncle, and he's entered five trees.

-Five?

7:48:487:48:52

-So you have got quite good chances of winning, I reckon.

-Yeah.

7:48:527:48:55

What are you looking for in the trees today?

7:48:557:48:57

-A nice shape of the trees and nice colour.

-Listen, good luck.

7:48:577:48:59

You don't need it, but good luck. High five.

7:48:597:49:02

Right, shape and colour.

7:49:057:49:06

This is tough - but I finally make up my mind.

7:49:067:49:10

The votes are in and it's time to announce the winner.

7:49:107:49:13

The winner of grower of the year is...

7:49:137:49:16

Rob Morgan of Grower Fresh Christmas Trees.

7:49:167:49:18

CHEERING

7:49:187:49:20

Congratulations, Rob.

7:49:207:49:22

He will now get to pick the Prime Minister's tree

7:49:227:49:25

from his farm in South Wales.

7:49:257:49:27

A bit taken aback, to be honest.

7:49:287:49:30

I knew it was a nice tree, but as you can see,

7:49:307:49:31

the quality of the trees in there is amazing -

7:49:317:49:34

but to get the top spot is such an honour.

7:49:347:49:36

Come on, we're not going to miss the moment he picks THE tree,

7:49:417:49:45

so a few weeks later,

7:49:457:49:46

we join Rob and his son Lloyd for the big moment.

7:49:467:49:49

It's exciting times on the farm today.

7:49:497:49:51

We've got to cut down the Christmas tree for Number Ten.

7:49:517:49:53

I planted it on a bit of a whim, not knowing what to do, really,

7:49:537:49:56

and as we're growing Christmas trees now we're surrounded by them and,

7:49:567:49:59

yeah, it's probably about a 20-year-old tree

7:49:597:50:01

and a fitting tribute to its life as a Christmas tree, to be honest.

7:50:017:50:05

MOTOR ROARS

7:50:057:50:08

Timber!

7:50:107:50:12

That's what you shout, isn't it?

7:50:137:50:15

It's now time to move this beauty to London.

7:50:157:50:18

Downing Street, is it, Linds?

7:50:187:50:20

Probably best if I take it from here.

7:50:207:50:23

Typical.

7:50:237:50:24

That door is Number Ten, this is Downing Street

7:50:247:50:26

and the tree is finally here.

7:50:267:50:28

It's lying down there but we're soon going to get it stood up.

7:50:287:50:31

You don't need me to tell you that the next job is to decorate it.

7:50:337:50:36

This 18-footer takes 1,500 lights

7:50:367:50:40

and more than 300 decorations,

7:50:407:50:43

and I get to hang a very special one -

7:50:437:50:46

but I've got another job.

7:50:467:50:47

Do you know, one of my favourite things about working on Blue Peter

7:50:497:50:52

is we get to see things you quite frankly wouldn't see anywhere else.

7:50:527:50:57

The official Christmas wreath

7:50:577:51:00

on the Number Ten Downing Street door.

7:51:007:51:03

What an honour.

7:51:037:51:05

So, Christmas decorations done,

7:51:057:51:07

next stop, turn on the Christmas lights.

7:51:077:51:09

Great work, Radz. Finally, it's the day of the switch-on.

7:51:117:51:15

The world's press are here and we're not missing this.

7:51:157:51:18

Time to hand over to the Prime Minister herself, Theresa May.

7:51:187:51:22

Hello, everybody, it's great to see you all here

7:51:237:51:27

as we are ready to turn on the Christmas tree lights

7:51:277:51:30

here in Downing Street once again.

7:51:307:51:32

Three, two, one...

7:51:327:51:35

CHEERING

7:51:377:51:39

Who would have thought the journey to get this tree here

7:51:417:51:44

started months ago and nearly 200 miles away?

7:51:447:51:48

And Blue Peter brought you all of it.

7:51:487:51:50

What an amazing achievement by Rob to get his tree here

7:51:507:51:54

outside Number Ten, and for us to be just a little part of that,

7:51:547:51:57

it's been absolutely amazing. I feel really festive.

7:51:577:52:00

Linds, Christmas is properly here.

7:52:007:52:03

What an unforgettable day that was -

7:52:047:52:06

but as much a part of any Blue Peter Christmas

7:52:067:52:08

as a Christmas tree decoration is this, our wooden nativity scene.

7:52:087:52:13

It's been with Blue Peter for over 50 years.

7:52:137:52:16

Now, Christmas is the celebration of the birth of Jesus,

7:52:167:52:19

who Christians like myself believe to be the son of God.

7:52:197:52:23

But to help finish the setting, I've got three helpers.

7:52:237:52:26

Katie, it's over to you.

7:52:267:52:27

Here are Mary and Joseph,

7:52:277:52:30

-who were staying in the stable with all the other animals.

-Thank you.

7:52:307:52:35

-Alex, over to you.

-The shepherds who followed the Star of Bethlehem.

7:52:357:52:40

And Lainey.

7:52:407:52:41

And here are the three wise men who came later,

7:52:417:52:44

bearing gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh.

7:52:447:52:47

And last but by no means least,

7:52:477:52:48

the most important person of them all,

7:52:487:52:51

baby Jesus lying in his manger.

7:52:517:52:54

From all of us here at Blue Peter, whatever you're doing for Christmas,

7:52:547:52:57

we wish you all a very...

7:52:577:53:00

-ALL:

-Merry Christmas!

7:53:007:53:02

Guys, that was beautiful. I feel really festive, that was lovely.

7:53:027:53:06

And of course, it's been an amazing year here on Blue Peter.

7:53:067:53:09

It's about to get even better in 2018. Check this out.

7:53:097:53:13

Coming up in 2018...

7:53:157:53:17

This is indoor surfing!

7:53:177:53:19

Check this out!

7:53:197:53:21

Come on!

7:53:257:53:26

Oh, I don't want to look down. We're not going out over there.

7:53:327:53:35

-That's where we're going.

-No, stop it. What?

7:53:357:53:38

Freestyle snowboarding.

7:53:387:53:40

Ho-ho!

7:53:407:53:41

Did you see that?

7:53:437:53:45

We're here for BBC Sports Personality Of The Year.

7:53:457:53:48

High five!

7:53:497:53:51

Oh, my goodness, this is unbelievable.

7:53:517:53:56

Yeah!

7:53:567:53:57

-Wow.

-Bring it on!

7:53:577:53:59

CHEERING

7:54:007:54:02

2018 will be the best year ever.

7:54:057:54:07

That is going to be so good -

7:54:077:54:08

but now it's time for one of our favourite moments of the year.

7:54:087:54:11

It's time for a Christmas carol.

7:54:117:54:13

We're going to sing Hark! The Herald Angels Sing.

7:54:137:54:15

We've got a lot of help here

7:54:157:54:16

and we hope you'll sing along at home, as well.

7:54:167:54:18

That's right, we're going to be joined by choirs

7:54:187:54:20

from Moorlands Junior, Beaver Road,

7:54:207:54:22

St Anne's Church of England and of course Old Moat Primary School.

7:54:227:54:25

As well as that, Rolls Crescent, Broadfields,

7:54:257:54:27

Wilbraham Primary Schools, and the choir from the Lancasterian School.

7:54:277:54:31

And they are going to be joined by members

7:54:317:54:33

of the BBC North staff choir with a musical accompaniment,

7:54:337:54:37

which you can hear, from the Central North Salvation Army band.

7:54:377:54:40

Cannot wait. Here they come now.

7:54:407:54:42

# Hark the herald angels sing

7:54:467:54:50

# Glory to the newborn King!

7:54:507:54:54

# Peace on earth and mercy mild

7:54:547:55:00

# God and sinners reconciled

7:55:007:55:05

# Joyful, all ye nations rise

7:55:057:55:09

# Join the triumph of the skies

7:55:097:55:14

# With the angelic host proclaim

7:55:147:55:18

# Christ by highest heaven adored

7:55:357:55:40

# Christ the everlasting Lord

# Veiled in flesh, the Godhead see

7:55:547:55:59

# Pleased as man with men to dwell

7:56:047:56:08

# Jesus, our Emmanuel

7:56:087:56:13

# Hark the herald angels sing

7:56:137:56:18

# Glory to the newborn King! #

7:56:187:56:23

We're going to do the next verse in just a minute,

7:56:247:56:27

but first, we'd like to wish you all

7:56:277:56:29

a very happy and healthy Christmas and New Year.

7:56:297:56:31

Be sure not to miss Blue Peter on 28th December,

7:56:317:56:34

which is all about the highlights of 2017.

7:56:347:56:36

Then, on the 4th of January,

7:56:367:56:37

it's a special about my free fall challenge,

7:56:377:56:40

when I skydived out of a plane.

7:56:407:56:41

You'll see that from start to finish.

7:56:417:56:43

We are going to be live again on Thursday the 11th of January,

7:56:437:56:46

so make sure you're watching -

7:56:467:56:48

and over the Christmas holidays,

7:56:487:56:50

do head to the Blue Peter website. It's amazing.

7:56:507:56:52

There's loads there to make, do and watch, so get involved.

7:56:527:56:55

As well as that, after this, head to the BP Fan Club Live

7:56:557:56:58

to chat all things Christmas with Tom Fletcher.

7:56:587:57:01

Don't miss out.

7:57:017:57:02

So, on behalf of Blue Peter, every single person in the studio,

7:57:027:57:06

we'd like to wish every single one of you at home a very...

7:57:067:57:10

-ALL:

-Merry Christmas!

7:57:107:57:12

-It's snowing!

-Look at that!

7:57:127:57:14

# Hail the heaven-born Prince of Peace

7:57:157:57:20

# Hail the Son of Righteousness

7:57:207:57:25

# Light and life to all he brings

7:57:257:57:30
