In 2017, Blue Peter entered its 60th year,

0:00:020:00:04

and in doing so it hit the headlines.

0:00:040:00:06

Presenters test new washing detergent,

0:00:060:00:08

Radzi offends pilot,

0:00:080:00:11

and Lindsey challenges shark to a game of hide and seek.

0:00:110:00:14

Whoa, whoa, whoa!

0:00:140:00:16

It wasn't like that at all.

0:00:160:00:17

Yeah, no. Let's take a look back at what really happened.

0:00:170:00:20

-Hello.

-Hello.

-And welcome to a very

0:00:360:00:40

special look back at an awesome 12 months on Blue Peter.

0:00:400:00:44

-Hey!

-I knew he was going to do that. It has been amazing.

0:00:440:00:46

We've had some brilliant competitions and actually, in total,

0:00:460:00:50

we've had over 30,000 of you getting involved.

0:00:500:00:53

Let's talk about the post, because, check this out,

0:00:530:00:55

you sent in so much post to us,

0:00:550:00:57

that we could have filled

0:00:570:01:00

1,646 Big Badge walls.

0:01:000:01:03

That deserves an applause.

0:01:030:01:05

Come on, everyone, that's amazing.

0:01:050:01:06

As well as that, we've had makes and bakes galore.

0:01:060:01:09

Do you remember the Shelley costume?

0:01:090:01:11

That was absolutely incredible.

0:01:110:01:13

We've had pancakes with The Sorted Food Team

0:01:130:01:15

and even the Minion cupcakes, who can forget?

0:01:150:01:18

Who can forget my favourite bake of all?

0:01:180:01:20

I know what you're going to say.

0:01:200:01:21

The emoji poo, people.

0:01:210:01:23

It was a little bit smelly but it was very tasty.

0:01:230:01:26

And of course it wouldn't be BP without some amazing challenges.

0:01:260:01:29

Do you remember the mission friction zip wire challenge?

0:01:290:01:32

-Yes!

-Who knew that two books interwoven like that,

0:01:320:01:35

could take so much weight?

0:01:350:01:36

It was good but scary.

0:01:360:01:37

Who also knew a man that was also 7ft tall could serve that fast?

0:01:370:01:43

His name is John Isner,

0:01:430:01:44

one of the fastest servers of all time

0:01:440:01:46

and I attempted to return one of the serves, it was very scary.

0:01:460:01:49

-And he made you look tiny as well.

-He made me look very small.

0:01:490:01:52

Something that made me feel tiny was those sharks.

0:01:520:01:54

My shark challenge, one of the scariest things,

0:01:540:01:56

probably the scariest thing,

0:01:560:01:58

I've ever done on Blue Peter but we got through it.

0:01:580:02:00

One of the muckiest challenges we've ever taken part in was when me and

0:02:000:02:03

Linds trained with the Royal Marine commandos, run VT!

0:02:030:02:08

We're experiencing what it's like to train

0:02:080:02:10

to be Royal Marines commandos.

0:02:100:02:12

Over the next 24 hours, you're going to live, eat,

0:02:120:02:14

and breathe like a Royal Marine recruit.

0:02:140:02:16

We're taking on the iconic Mud Run.

0:02:160:02:19

Set in the muddy estuary next to the marines' training base,

0:02:190:02:23

the Mud Run has become legendary as being one of the toughest parts of a

0:02:230:02:28

commando's training and we're going to experience what it feels like.

0:02:280:02:33

Over the years it's been a classic Blue Peter challenge and for me

0:02:330:02:37

personally, it's been something I've always wanted to try,

0:02:370:02:41

having seen Simon and Matt do it when I was growing up.

0:02:410:02:44

We're tired, we're wet but it's time to meet the mud.

0:02:440:02:50

Can I just say, it stinks and it's cold.

0:02:500:02:54

We're already wet, so this can only go one way.

0:02:540:02:57

-Let's go!

-Argh!

0:02:570:03:01

Trust me, nothing prepares you for the mud!

0:03:010:03:04

Just call crawling through it is so difficult.

0:03:070:03:11

I've never done anything like this.

0:03:110:03:12

But crawling is just the beginning,

0:03:120:03:14

instructor Ben wants us up and running again.

0:03:140:03:17

-On your feet!

-Then, back down to crawling.

0:03:170:03:20

Get down!

0:03:200:03:21

That expression of running through treacle has never been so true.

0:03:210:03:27

This is...

0:03:270:03:28

..look at that.

0:03:280:03:29

Roll over! Roll over!

0:03:310:03:32

As if that wasn't enough...

0:03:320:03:33

How do I look?

0:03:330:03:34

..we're told to turn over.

0:03:340:03:36

On your backs! Start crawling.

0:03:360:03:38

Push off with your legs, come on!

0:03:380:03:41

Toughest thing I've ever done.

0:03:410:03:43

Ben is not letting us get away with anything.

0:03:430:03:47

Away we go. Come on.

0:03:470:03:48

Let's go, guys. Let's move.

0:03:480:03:50

-Urgh!

-It's getting more and more

0:03:500:03:52

difficult to keep going and we've only

0:03:520:03:54

been doing this for a matter of minutes.

0:03:540:03:56

Away we go. On your feet.

0:03:560:03:59

Start moving! Come on.

0:03:590:04:00

Come on, you two, let's go. Away we go!

0:04:000:04:02

On your feet! In we go!

0:04:030:04:06

Thankfully, we're called in.

0:04:060:04:08

That was incredibly tough.

0:04:080:04:12

That is hands down, one of the craziest experiences of my life.

0:04:120:04:17

I can't even speak!

0:04:170:04:18

Radz, this is gross but I actually

0:04:220:04:23

had mud in my ears for weeks after that.

0:04:230:04:26

-It was grim.

-I had it in there for months!

0:04:260:04:29

The lengths we go to for the BP badge

0:04:290:04:30

and of course one of the most sought

0:04:300:04:32

after BP badges is this, the orange badge,

0:04:320:04:34

which we award to Blue Peter competition winners and runners up.

0:04:340:04:38

My favourite competition ever on

0:04:380:04:40

Blue Peter was launched by none other,

0:04:400:04:42

by athletics legend, Dame Jessica Ennis Hill,

0:04:420:04:45

and para athletics legend, Richard Whitehead.

0:04:450:04:48

They came into the studio to launch our London 2017 mascot competition,

0:04:480:04:52

which was won by Eleanor.

0:04:520:04:54

Now check out these designs here.

0:04:540:04:56

This is Hero and Whizzbee.

0:04:560:04:57

They were turned into the actual mascots used at

0:04:570:05:00

the IFF World Athletics Championships

0:05:000:05:03

and the World Para Athletics Championships.

0:05:030:05:05

Didn't they look awesome?

0:05:050:05:06

And that right there, is what I call a competition.

0:05:060:05:08

They went global as well.

0:05:080:05:10

That was incredible.

0:05:100:05:11

Something you guys absolutely love

0:05:110:05:13

is a design competition and you did not

0:05:130:05:15

disappoint with our Design A Dragon competition last year.

0:05:150:05:19

It was amazing. And of course the winner was Florence.

0:05:190:05:21

Cannot wait to see her dragon

0:05:210:05:23

actually brought to life, the real thing,

0:05:230:05:25

on the Great Pagoda at the Royal Botanical Gardens, Kew.

0:05:250:05:28

-Very cool.

-And speaking of design,

0:05:280:05:30

what about the Awesome Animations competition?

0:05:300:05:33

I didn't just think it was awesome, that's what it was called.

0:05:330:05:35

We asked you at home to invent and design a prehistoric creature,

0:05:350:05:39

which the awesome team at Aardman Animations

0:05:390:05:41

would actually turn into a genuine moving picture.

0:05:410:05:44

So many of you liked it,

0:05:440:05:46

you made it our most popular competition in six years,

0:05:460:05:49

over 9,000 of you applied.

0:05:490:05:51

-Well done.

-That is very cool, and of course, last but not least,

0:05:510:05:54

who could forget our Code Breaker competition -

0:05:540:05:57

Fit For Spy, Alex Rider.

0:05:570:05:58

Well, our winner, Alexander,

0:05:580:06:00

actually got to see his name written into Anthony Horowitz's latest book.

0:06:000:06:04

And on top of that, he got the spy experience of a lifetime.

0:06:040:06:08

Check this out.

0:06:080:06:09

There's only one way any spy is going to travel to London - by air!

0:06:160:06:21

-You ready for this?

-Yeah.

0:06:310:06:33

Can you see the helicopter over there?

0:06:340:06:36

Give it a wave.

0:06:360:06:37

Did you ever think for a second when you entered the competition,

0:06:390:06:42

that you'd be flying in a helicopter with me,

0:06:420:06:44

being filmed by the Blue Peter film team,

0:06:440:06:46

on your way to the River Thames?

0:06:460:06:47

Never. Fab.

0:06:470:06:49

Well done. You are well worthy of that badge.

0:06:490:06:51

-And there's the Shard.

-The one that's like that?

0:06:520:06:55

It goes to a point, yeah.

0:06:550:06:56

And that's the BT Tower just there.

0:06:590:07:01

You can see it sticking up just by where the Wheel is.

0:07:010:07:03

That's the London Eye just there, look.

0:07:030:07:05

Wow!

0:07:070:07:09

End of the journey.

0:07:150:07:17

You ready to go inside and meet Anthony?

0:07:170:07:19

-Mm-mm.

-Up top. Follow me.

0:07:190:07:21

Alex, welcome to my London home.

0:07:280:07:29

How nice to meet you. Congratulations.

0:07:290:07:31

And you're going to be in my book, is that the idea?

0:07:310:07:33

-Mm-mm.

-Then let's go up to my office. Come on, it's this way.

0:07:330:07:36

It's a rather unusual way to get to an office, look.

0:07:360:07:39

-I'm going through here.

-It just keeps getting cooler, doesn't it.

0:07:410:07:44

-After you.

-Wow!

0:07:440:07:45

Before our very eyes, Anthony writes Code Breaker,

0:07:450:07:47

Alex Randall into Never Say Die,

0:07:470:07:50

to be read by Alex Rider fans around the world.

0:07:500:07:52

What an end to the ultimate spy adventure.

0:07:540:07:58

No matter how many times I've seen orange badges

0:07:580:08:00

being earned on Blue Peter,

0:08:000:08:02

it still amazes me what entering a competition can do.

0:08:020:08:05

How cool was Alex?!

0:08:070:08:09

And of course that all came about

0:08:090:08:10

because he decided to enter a Blue Peter competition,

0:08:100:08:13

which means the next one could be you.

0:08:130:08:16

That's right and that's what Blue Peter is all about,

0:08:160:08:18

it's all about you lot at home.

0:08:180:08:19

Because we absolutely love receiving

0:08:190:08:21

your competition entries, your poems,

0:08:210:08:23

your posts, your pictures, your 3-D models, Purple Badge forms,

0:08:230:08:27

Sport Badge forms, we love it all.

0:08:270:08:29

And at the moment, in total, there's 172,000...

0:08:290:08:33

-How many?

-..172,000.

0:08:330:08:35

-Crazy!

-Yeah, of you have BP badges,

0:08:350:08:38

so we think it's a pretty cool club to be a part of.

0:08:380:08:41

And of that super special club

0:08:410:08:42

we only gave out several of the Blue Peter Gold Badges

0:08:420:08:45

to organisations and individuals and one of those

0:08:450:08:49

organisations was none other than the RAF Falcons.

0:08:490:08:52

They were the guys that instructed me in

0:08:520:08:54

the biggest ever, and best ever,

0:08:540:08:56

Blue Peter challenge that I've ever been a part of.

0:08:560:08:58

And also inspired so many Blue Peter presenters before me.

0:08:580:09:01

Such a special moment there.

0:09:010:09:03

And a very special person is mountaineer Molly Hughes.

0:09:030:09:06

She was the youngest woman ever,

0:09:060:09:08

to climb not one but both sides of Mount Everest,

0:09:080:09:11

and she even took the BP badge along with her.

0:09:110:09:14

-What a legend.

-And just take a look at how shocked and excited and

0:09:140:09:18

surprised, and chuffed,

0:09:180:09:19

Cressida Cowell is to get her Gold Badge,

0:09:190:09:21

of course, author of How To Train Your Dragon series.

0:09:210:09:25

So to celebrate our Gold Badge holders here on Blue Peter,

0:09:250:09:27

we created the Gold Badge Walk

0:09:270:09:29

in Salford and I got to add a very special person

0:09:290:09:32

that loads of you requested to see on your Purple Badge form.

0:09:320:09:35

-It was me?

-It wasn't you.

-Ah.

-It was Mary Berry.

0:09:350:09:37

I'm at Henley Literary Festival,

0:09:380:09:40

to meet a lady who's inspired a new generation of bakers.

0:09:400:09:44

She's considered the Queen of Cakes,

0:09:440:09:45

and today she has no idea that I'm here, so wish me luck.

0:09:450:09:49

Mary, I'm here to surprise you a little bit.

0:09:500:09:52

Because you are so very special and so very loved and important to our

0:09:520:09:58

Blue Peter viewers and of course the essence of Blue Peter is making and

0:09:580:10:04

baking, so we'd like to award you

0:10:040:10:06

with your very own gold Blue Peter badge.

0:10:060:10:09

Look at that!

0:10:120:10:14

I'm very honoured and I had no idea.

0:10:140:10:18

Congratulations. Thank you so much, Mary.

0:10:180:10:20

Thank you.

0:10:200:10:22

And from TV royalty, to actual royalty!

0:10:230:10:27

We had a very special Gold Badge moment this year

0:10:270:10:30

when the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge

0:10:300:10:33

joined us in the BP studio.

0:10:330:10:35

I think you guys have inspired so many people,

0:10:360:10:38

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

0:10:380:10:41

but also to know that they're going

0:10:410:10:43

to be listened to and that that's OK.

0:10:430:10:45

We'd actually like to award you with our highest accolade, it is,

0:10:450:10:49

the Gold Blue Peter badge for your Royal Highnesses.

0:10:490:10:51

-Wow! Thank you.

-Thank you very much.

-That's very touching.

0:10:510:10:54

-Thank you very, very much.

-Thank you very much.

0:10:540:10:56

-Congratulations.

-Congratulations.

0:10:560:10:58

-Thank you so much.

-Wow.

0:10:580:10:59

-That's amazing.

-Thank you.

0:10:590:11:00

We have won a badge!

0:11:000:11:01

-Linds?

-Yeah.

0:11:040:11:05

One word, five syllables

0:11:050:11:07

for best guest ever,

0:11:070:11:09

WrestleMania, baby!

0:11:090:11:10

I got to go and I met loads of really cool people

0:11:100:11:13

-and it was the best thing ever.

-OK. Calm down.

0:11:130:11:15

Another amazing guest we had was JJ McPartland.

0:11:150:11:18

She came on and she absolutely smashed it.

0:11:180:11:21

You would not want to mess with her, would you?!

0:11:440:11:46

As well as that, do you remember David Walliams?

0:11:460:11:48

He came on and he answered viewers' questions

0:11:480:11:51

and he was very funny, might I add.

0:11:510:11:52

Well, it's very exciting.

0:11:520:11:54

I've never been in the studio before.

0:11:540:11:56

Have you not?! And you're wearing a Gold Badge.

0:11:560:11:58

Yes, I got a Gold Badge, which is very exciting.

0:11:580:12:00

Because there's only been about ten or so given out, is that right?

0:12:000:12:03

-Not many have been given out.

-Not quite, a few more than ten.

0:12:030:12:05

OK. When I got one it was ten.

0:12:050:12:07

They're obviously giving them out to anybody now!

0:12:070:12:09

I got this for swimming the Channel ten years ago.

0:12:090:12:11

-Indeed. Incredible.

-I was very excited.

0:12:110:12:13

It's one of my most prized possessions.

0:12:130:12:15

Radz, one I know you loved was Laurence Shahlaei,

0:12:150:12:18

one of the world's strongest men, came on.

0:12:180:12:20

But what an entrance, actually

0:12:200:12:22

pulling a bus of BP fans onto the piazza.

0:12:220:12:24

You can't top that.

0:12:240:12:26

Linds, I've got five guests, Triple H, Dean Ambrose, Becky Lynch,

0:12:260:12:31

Sasha Banks and I got to go in the car with Cesaro.

0:12:310:12:34

THEY SING

0:12:340:12:38

Yes!

0:12:380:12:40

Cos I went, I'm not sure I mentioned this, WrestleMania, baby!

0:12:400:12:44

You have mentioned it, Radz. We know you love wrestling.

0:12:440:12:46

But we've also had, do you remember

0:12:460:12:48

the Warwick Castle team who came with actual horses

0:12:480:12:50

and I got to joust?

0:12:500:12:51

One of the best live shows ever.

0:12:510:12:54

I was not a natural on that horse, was I?

0:12:540:12:57

-You gave it the beans, Linds.

-I did.

0:12:570:12:58

I did go for it. It's all about the BP badge.

0:12:580:13:00

Do you remember when we had

0:13:000:13:01

Dame Jacqueline Wilson as our first-ever guest editor

0:13:010:13:04

on the show and just to top that show off, we had Ali A,

0:13:040:13:07

from Ali A Supercharger,

0:13:070:13:08

doing the most phenomenal takeover

0:13:080:13:10

I think we've ever had in the BP studio

0:13:100:13:12

but, maybe the best guest ever, has to be, no, not you.

0:13:120:13:16

-Ah!

-Harry Hill when he came on as

0:13:160:13:18

the best quiz show host for our 59th birthday.

0:13:180:13:20

That was good, wasn't it?

0:13:200:13:22

Linds, that was so good, let's watch it again.

0:13:220:13:24

Go on.

0:13:240:13:25

Spot Shelley!

0:13:250:13:26

Yeah! Well, now.

0:13:290:13:30

I love a bit of Spot Shelley.

0:13:300:13:32

But this is Spot Shelley with a difference.

0:13:320:13:34

Before you, you can see five hedgehogs, tortoises, sorry.

0:13:340:13:40

Five tortoises but only one is the beloved pet, Shelley.

0:13:400:13:45

All right. So, you have five seconds in which to decide which is which.

0:13:450:13:50

OK. Which is Shelley?

0:13:500:13:52

Play along at home, please.

0:13:520:13:54

Is it Shell A?

0:13:540:13:57

Is it Shell B, who works at a nail bar at the weekend?

0:13:590:14:04

Is it Shell C, who recently went on a blind date with an armadillo?

0:14:040:14:08

Is it Shell D, who has a phobia of garlic butter?

0:14:080:14:11

Or is it Shel-E, who is a lot bigger than all the others?

0:14:120:14:17

-Go on!

-Your time starts now.

0:14:170:14:20

-What do we think it is?

-I think it's C.

0:14:200:14:22

Why?

0:14:220:14:24

-Because...

-Yeah.

0:14:240:14:25

OK, time's up, Lindsey's team.

0:14:270:14:30

-OK, go on, Marion.

-What have you decided?

0:14:300:14:32

-Do the honours.

-We went for C.

0:14:320:14:33

-You've gone for C.

-Yeah, we think she was kind of loving the camera,

0:14:330:14:36

-wasn't she?

-She was loving the camera like she was used to it, yes.

0:14:360:14:39

-Radzi's team?

-We picked C because we "C" the right answer.

0:14:390:14:43

Did you hear that, Harry, we "C" the right answer?

0:14:430:14:46

You're both saying C.

0:14:460:14:48

So, will the real Shelley please step forward?

0:14:480:14:52

DRUM ROLL

0:14:520:14:54

Oh! Yeah, we didn't really think this through, did we?

0:14:540:14:57

Massive Shelley, would you mind giving us a hand?

0:14:570:15:00

Just help us... Yes!

0:15:000:15:02

Oh! Hello!

0:15:050:15:07

It was C. All right, Shelley, what's that?

0:15:070:15:11

Yes. Yes. What?

0:15:110:15:12

You should have gone before you came out. All right!

0:15:120:15:16

How amazing was that? Highlight of the year,

0:15:160:15:18

seeing Harry Hill and Shelley, TV legends together.

0:15:180:15:21

-That was amazing.

-Another highlight, Linds,

0:15:210:15:23

was that I got to go to WrestleMania!

0:15:230:15:24

-Yeah, we know, Radz, we got that.

-All right.

-Another highlight

0:15:240:15:27

was some of the great performances we've had.

0:15:270:15:29

Do you remember Flambe Circus?

0:15:290:15:31

-Yes!

-They came on.

0:15:310:15:32

They were amazing. But it was touch-and-go

0:15:320:15:34

-because it was so windy that day...

-Yes, it was.

0:15:340:15:36

We didn't actually know if they'd be able to perform.

0:15:360:15:38

But they did and they nailed it.

0:15:380:15:40

-Well done.

-And what about the Soweto Skeleton Movers?

0:15:400:15:43

They were genuinely mind-boggling, and flexible.

0:15:430:15:46

Oh!

0:15:480:15:49

And the music performances on BP have been amazing.

0:15:500:15:53

Of course, we had Sophia Grace...

0:15:530:15:56

# You all talk about me still I bring the fire... #

0:15:570:16:02

..The Vamps...

0:16:020:16:04

# Wide awake, that's OK

0:16:040:16:07

# As long as I'm with you

0:16:070:16:09

# I'll be up all night

0:16:090:16:11

# No sleep

0:16:110:16:13

# Cos I feel like I'm always dreaming... #

0:16:130:16:16

..New Hope Club...

0:16:190:16:20

# Every time you go I come a little undone

0:16:200:16:22

# Even when it hurts I'm holding on to your love like

0:16:220:16:26

# I'm fixed, fixed, fixed

0:16:260:16:28

# You got me fixed, fixed, fixed

0:16:280:16:30

# On you... #

0:16:300:16:32

And The Shades, to name just a few...

0:16:320:16:35

# She's t-t-trouble

0:16:350:16:37

# Like you wouldn't believe

0:16:370:16:39

# She's t-t-trouble

0:16:390:16:41

# But she's amazing to me

0:16:410:16:43

# T-t-trouble

0:16:430:16:45

# That's what your mother would say

0:16:450:16:47

# T-t-trouble

0:16:470:16:49

# And I love her that way... #

0:16:490:16:51

Linds, all that variety, only on one place, Blue Peter, baby!

0:16:510:16:55

That's right. But I think, and maybe our favourite,

0:16:550:16:58

I know we're not allowed favourites, was the incredible JP Cooper.

0:16:580:17:01

Have a look at this.

0:17:010:17:02

# Our love was strong as a lion

0:17:140:17:17

# Soft as the cotton you lie in

0:17:170:17:19

# Times we got hot like an iron

0:17:190:17:22

# You and I

0:17:220:17:23

# Our hearts have never been broken

0:17:250:17:28

# We were so innocent, darling

0:17:280:17:30

# We used to talk till the morning

0:17:300:17:33

# You and I

0:17:330:17:34

# We had that mixtape on every weekend

0:17:370:17:41

# Had it repeating

0:17:410:17:44

# Had it repeating

0:17:440:17:46

# You were my September song

0:17:460:17:49

# Summer lasted too long

0:17:490:17:53

# Time moves so slowly

0:17:530:17:55

# When you're only 15

0:17:550:17:57

# You were my September song

0:17:570:18:01

# Tell me where have you gone?

0:18:010:18:03

# Do you remember me?

0:18:030:18:07

# We were only 15

0:18:070:18:09

# Sometimes I think that I see your

0:18:090:18:11

# Face in the strangest of places

0:18:110:18:14

# Down on the underground station

0:18:140:18:17

# Passing by

0:18:170:18:20

# And I get a mad sense of danger

0:18:200:18:23

# I feel like my heart couldn't take it

0:18:230:18:25

# Cos if we met we'd be strangers

0:18:250:18:28

# You and I

0:18:280:18:30

# Still I play that mixtape every weekend

0:18:320:18:35

# I got it repeating

0:18:360:18:39

# Got it repeating

0:18:390:18:41

# You were my September song

0:18:410:18:44

# Summer lasted too long

0:18:440:18:47

# Time moves so slowly

0:18:480:18:51

# When you're only 15

0:18:510:18:52

# You were my September song

0:18:520:18:56

# Tell me where have you gone?

0:18:560:18:58

# Do you remember me?

0:18:580:19:01

# We were only 15

0:19:010:19:03

# And I

0:19:030:19:08

# I remember the chorus

0:19:080:19:11

# They were singing it for us

0:19:110:19:14

# I hear that September song

0:19:140:19:17

# And I'm singing along

0:19:170:19:20

# Thinking about you and me

0:19:200:19:23

# Oh what a melody

0:19:230:19:25

# Oh, no

0:19:250:19:27

# And as the years go by

0:19:270:19:30

# You will still be my

0:19:300:19:33

# Be my

0:19:360:19:39

# You are my

0:19:410:19:47

# You were my September song

0:19:520:19:55

# Summer lasted too long

0:19:550:19:58

# Time moves so slowly

0:19:580:20:01

# When you're only 15

0:20:010:20:03

# You were my September song

0:20:030:20:06

# Tell me where have you gone?

0:20:060:20:08

# Do you remember me?

0:20:090:20:12

# We were only 15

0:20:120:20:14

# And I

0:20:140:20:19

# I remember the chorus

0:20:190:20:22

# They were singing it for us. #

0:20:220:20:25

Absolutely love that tune.

0:20:300:20:31

Linds, talking of tunes. Cue the music!

0:20:310:20:34

FAN OF THE MONTH FANFARE

0:20:340:20:35

-Oh, yes.

-Hold for the best bit.

0:20:350:20:37

-There it goes.

-There it is.

0:20:370:20:38

When you hear that music, that can mean only one thing,

0:20:380:20:40

The Fan of the Month.

0:20:400:20:42

But throughout the year we've had some had

0:20:420:20:44

some incredible Fan Of The Month reveals and,

0:20:440:20:46

with that in mind, let's remind ourselves of them right now.

0:20:460:20:49

-Pink...

-Sparkly...

-Football!

0:20:490:20:52

Haybale melon head.

0:20:520:20:55

Fan of the Month is inside the pasty.

0:20:550:20:58

Take it out!

0:20:580:21:00

It is topaz hypea echidna!

0:21:000:21:02

-Beige Mini Butterfly.

-Well done.

0:21:030:21:06

May's Fan of the Month is

0:21:070:21:10

Pink Sparkle Cupcake!

0:21:100:21:12

Thank you very much.

0:21:140:21:16

This June's Fan of the Month is, Goldy Panda!

0:21:160:21:21

-Can you please do the honours?

-Yes, please. The Fan of the Month

0:21:220:21:25

in July is...

0:21:250:21:27

Oh, the tension.

0:21:270:21:28

The tension. Oh!

0:21:280:21:30

Oh! Oh, what is it?

0:21:300:21:31

It's Woodwind Hedgehog Unicorn.

0:21:310:21:33

Fan Of The Month is, Beige Athletic Bear.

0:21:330:21:36

Hey! Thanks, Peppa!

0:21:390:21:41

The Fan of the Month is in the flan of the month.

0:21:410:21:44

-Get rid of that flan.

-And it is Orange Summery Seal.

0:21:440:21:47

Oh, well done.

0:21:470:21:48

-Here it comes.

-Wait! Come back here.

-Come back!

-Here it is.

0:21:480:21:53

Here it is. Bit of a crush. It's fine.

0:21:530:21:56

-We saved it.

-This is congratulations to DJ Snowflake Diva.

0:21:560:22:01

# Pink Fluffy Unicorn

0:22:010:22:03

# Pink Fluffy Unicorn

0:22:030:22:06

# Pink Fluffy Unicorn. #

0:22:060:22:08

Oh, what a fantastic bunch of fans you are.

0:22:080:22:10

But we thought we'd reveal December's Fan of the Month.

0:22:100:22:13

We've already done it on the website but it's more exciting to do it here

0:22:130:22:16

-in the studio, isn't it?

-Absolutely.

0:22:160:22:18

-Go on, Radz.

-OK, the Fan of the Month in the month of December

0:22:180:22:21

is, drum roll if you will, please, is...

0:22:210:22:25

Coral Jelly Duck.

0:22:270:22:30

And look at that. Lindsey,

0:22:300:22:31

that's a coral and a duck inside an actual edible jelly!

0:22:310:22:35

That's how it work, Radz.

0:22:350:22:37

-Calm down.

-That's amazing.

0:22:370:22:38

If you'd like to be Fan of the Month and see Radzi this excited all over

0:22:380:22:41

again. All you need to do is get a CBBC ID,

0:22:410:22:43

head to the Blue Peter website and get involved with Fan Club.

0:22:430:22:47

And whilst you're on the website there's loads to do.

0:22:470:22:50

-Have some.

-No!

0:22:500:22:52

Are we on?

0:22:520:22:53

-Oops, we're on.

-Really?

0:22:530:22:54

Let's do this.

0:22:540:22:56

"I pooped on my dad's hand when I was a baby."

0:22:560:22:59

-Eugh!

-I very much hope that Blue Peter recycle...

0:22:590:23:01

What is happening in my mouth?

0:23:010:23:02

-This is nonsense!

-Oh, my gosh.

0:23:020:23:04

That's like worst when you were...

0:23:040:23:06

Stop playing with your dinner and eat it.

0:23:060:23:08

-MUFFLED:

-Outrageous.

0:23:080:23:11

Ew. Eugh. Bleurgh...

0:23:110:23:13

Get decorating!

0:23:130:23:15

# Oh!

0:23:150:23:17

# Ah!

0:23:170:23:18

# Eeee! #

0:23:180:23:19

Have you seen the size of these hoses?!

0:23:210:23:24

Argh!

0:23:240:23:25

You like that, my darling?

0:23:250:23:28

That might be an idea that I might patent myself.

0:23:280:23:30

I think they're gonna put this up on their website.

0:23:300:23:33

Bye!

0:23:330:23:34

A lot of cool stuff going on there.

0:23:340:23:36

And of course you would have recognised the lovely squishy face

0:23:360:23:39

-of Mr Barney Harwood.

-Good times.

0:23:390:23:41

But this was of course the year we said goodbye to Mr Barney Harwood.

0:23:410:23:44

He gave us thrills, he give us spills but above all else,

0:23:440:23:46

he gave us loads of laughs.

0:23:460:23:48

It's time for Blue Peter's Barney Harwood,

0:23:480:23:51

to become the magnificent,

0:23:510:23:52

legendary, and,

0:23:520:23:54

um, beautiful,

0:23:540:23:56

Queen of Hearts.

0:23:560:23:58

I think you'll agree that I look the part thanks to

0:23:580:24:00

some very talented members of the team here.

0:24:000:24:02

OK. I think I've got it.

0:24:020:24:03

I think I've got a funny joke.

0:24:030:24:05

It's simple, it's subtle...

0:24:050:24:08

..but I think it's funny. Here goes.

0:24:080:24:10

Yeah, my boots.

0:24:100:24:12

Ah, so cheeky.

0:24:120:24:14

Always sticking their tongue out!

0:24:140:24:15

Like that?

0:24:210:24:23

Do you have plans for the weekend?

0:24:230:24:27

Well, maybe we should talk about that later, should we?

0:24:270:24:29

I'll be honest, I didn't expect to be going on a date with a robot this

0:24:290:24:32

weekend but it's turned out quite well for me, thank you.

0:24:320:24:34

Hey, Barney, remember this fella?

0:24:340:24:36

I do. Is it the fella?

0:24:360:24:37

Well, it is a giant African bull frog.

0:24:370:24:39

The same frog that you held on your first-ever Blue Peter show.

0:24:390:24:43

So as your last challenge we thought maybe you could take it one step

0:24:430:24:46

further and give him a kiss.

0:24:460:24:48

But no kissing frogs at home, guys.

0:24:480:24:51

Go on, Barney! Go on Barney!

0:24:510:24:53

And in three, two, one, let's do it!

0:24:590:25:02

Oh! It felt good.

0:25:140:25:16

Yeah!

0:25:160:25:18

Amazing!

0:25:180:25:19

And now for the most dangerous manoeuvre of the day.

0:25:190:25:21

If I am just slightly out of position,

0:25:210:25:23

someone could get seriously hurt.

0:25:230:25:25

Edge out, edge out, edge out.

0:25:280:25:29

I mean, just look at that.

0:25:320:25:34

Good work, everyone. Good stuff.

0:25:370:25:39

But what happens if you take each one of those moves

0:25:390:25:42

and put them together?

0:25:420:25:44

Well, it is my final challenge.

0:25:440:25:46

MUSIC: Time To Say Goodbye by Sarah Brightman

0:25:460:25:48

And every great performance needs a big finish.

0:26:040:26:07

Oh!

0:26:100:26:13

What a man he is!

0:26:130:26:16

But don't be sad, because there's still loads coming up on BP.

0:26:160:26:19

There certainly is, and if you don't believe us, check this out.

0:26:190:26:22

Coming up in 2018.

0:26:240:26:26

This is indoor surfing.

0:26:260:26:28

Check this out!

0:26:280:26:30

Urgh!

0:26:310:26:32

Come on, team!

0:26:330:26:35

Oh, I don't want to look down.

0:26:410:26:43

We're not going out over there?

0:26:430:26:44

No, stop it! What?

0:26:440:26:47

Freestyle snowboarding.

0:26:470:26:52

Did you see that?

0:26:520:26:54

We're here for BBC Sports Personality of the Year.

0:26:540:26:58

Whoohoo! High five.

Oh, my goodness.

0:27:000:27:02

This is unbelievable.

0:27:020:27:04

Yay!

0:27:040:27:06

Wow!

0:27:060:27:07

Bring it on.

0:27:070:27:08

And that is just for starters.

0:27:120:27:14

But now, it's over to you,

0:27:140:27:16

because if there's anything you'd

0:27:160:27:18

like to see on Blue Peter, let us know.

0:27:180:27:19

And there are three ways you can do that.

0:27:190:27:21

First of all is via the website.

0:27:210:27:23

Secondly is by filling out a Purple Badge form and finally,

0:27:230:27:26

is by sending in some good old-fashioned post.

0:27:260:27:28

That's right, we absolutely love hearing from you.

0:27:280:27:30

And we love giving you what you want to see.

0:27:300:27:32

The show just wouldn't be the same without your online comments,

0:27:320:27:35

your letters, your drawings, all your amazing posts, your models,

0:27:350:27:38

it's incredible. So we just want to

0:27:380:27:40

say a massive thank you for making the show what it is.

0:27:400:27:44

Keep your posts coming in.

0:27:440:27:45

-It's your show.

-Until next time, guys.

0:27:450:27:47

-See you later.

-Bye.

-Bye-bye!
