On today's show I'm joined by Match Of The Day Kickabout's Tyler
and it is all about cheese, and you know what?
I can already smell it, actually.
-Just got back from playing footy, ready to start the show.
Hello, you're watching Blue Peter
and, of course, look who's here, it's Tyler.
I'm very pleased you got rid of the shoes, they were pongy.
Yeah, I'm sorry about that, but what else do you expect from
a Match Of The Day Kickabout presenter? I love football.
Fair enough. You may be wondering at home,
"How on earth is Lindsey here? Because we know she's currently
"with Radzi doing their Sport Relief challenge."
You are indeed correct.
We have had to prerecord the show because as you know Radzi and I
are doing our Mega Mileathon.
If you want to see how we get on we will show you in just
two weeks' time, or you can keep up-to-date on the BP website.
They're following us, they love it.
But fear not, we have an amazing show coming up.
Tyler, what's on the menu?
Shelley will be featuring somewhere on the show, so keep your eyes
peeled, and as soon as you see her, leave a comment on Fan Club Live.
And as well is that we are going to be taking a look... Bye, Shelley.
..at a very special Sport Relief project that helps children,
and it helps improve their lives all over the world.
And of course it is Mother's Day on Sunday.
Yes, yes, Mums!
So we've come up with an epic Blue Peter breakfast in bed
for you to make at home.
And as well as that, we're cramming more into the show, because
maybe you remember my rugby league challenge at Wembley Stadium.
It was so scary but so cool!
So we'll be taking a look back at that.
And who at home remembers when I went caving in Somerset at
the Wookey Hole Caves with a block of cheese strapped to my back?
Yes, no, this actually happened. Classic BP.
But before I did that I had to go and make the cheese.
Have a look at this.
This is Ford Farm and I'm here because we need to find out
how cheese is made.
Oh, my goodness. Is that milk?
We fill the tanks with milk, this is now curds and whey.
When a special ingredient is added to milk
it splits into curds and whey.
Curds are the solid bits and whey is the liquid.
Once most of the whey has been drained
it's time to cheddar the curds.
We cut it with a knife and then we roll the loaf over.
-Oh, right. And that's cheddaring.
-And that's cheddaring.
-And that is why it's called cheddar cheese.
After cutting and turning the curds into blocks, all our hard
work is undone by this machine which breaks it up again into small
pieces to make sure the cheese gets an even scattering of salt.
The curds are then put into moulds to be pressed into shape.
After four hours of being pressed, our cheese is carefully...
..very carefully... Come on, cheese!
..taken out and covered with a layer of lard
to protect it from drying out.
It is then wrapped and left to mature for 12 months.
Quite proud of that, Martin. Done.
I've just got one more thing on my to-do list.
Because this cheese doesn't just sit on the farm for 12 months.
To give it a unique earthy flavour, it's kept 16 metres underground at
the Wookey Hole Caves in Somerset.
To get our cheese into its home for the year,
I'm going to take it caving.
Guys, this is extreme cheese.
Caving guide Becka is here to help me.
Hi, how are you doing?
Thank you for helping me today. Let's do this.
I'm taking our cheese through some of the ancient tunnels and caverns,
so I wrapped it carefully in a bag.
That is a tight squeeze.
Ooh, ooh, OK.
But caving is only the beginning.
It turns out I will do anything for cheese.
So, Becka, what are we doing?
Lindsey, you are going to do an abseil, so when you're ready,
if you just want to kneel down and go out to the edge.
-This is an intense way to store cheese, I've got to say.
You could have just put it in the fridge, no?
This is ridiculous.
I'm dangling from a rock face, all for a block of cheddar.
Travelling nearly 500 metres through these beautiful caverns
I finally come to the place where the cheese is going to rest
for the next 12 months, and just through here
is cheese chamber expert Tanys.
-Tanys, hi. Whereabouts is my cheese going to go?
-Blue Peter cheese.
So, why is it important it's in here, Tanys?
It's 11 degrees all year round, it has a perfect humidity
and it has a nice earthy flavour the caves bring out in it.
Our BP cheddar will take on those cavey tastes as it matures
16 metres below the ground for the next year.
And a year has passed, so the cheese is back.
Is everyone ready to see what it's looking like?
CHEERING OK, let's bring in the cheese.
Tanys, come on in. Welcome to Blue Peter.
Thank you for having me.
Thank you for bringing in this beautiful cheese.
We can kind of smell it.
It smells quite cavey, has it absorbed all those flavours?
Yes, it has. It's very earthy inside.
It will taste great
and I think it has quite a good mould on the outside.
Well, speaking of mould, let's have a look at what it looked like
a couple of weeks ago. Look at that!
-That's a bit funky.
-That is funky.
That's a good word to describe it. Cloudy.
You've got rid of the mould - what do you do, wash it off?
We brush it off, so it's now nice and clean for you.
-What is that tool you're holding there?
-This is a cheese iron.
And basically you use it to bore the cheese.
So that we can get a hole in it, get the cheese out and taste it.
But before we taste the BP cheese, this is just regular boring cheddar.
Boring? That is actually my favourite.
This is one of my favourite items we have ever done on Blue Peter.
Just eat cheese, it's great.
So, that tastes creamy, pretty normal, not too strong, is it?
-No, it's good.
-Shall we taste the BP one?
This one is going to be better.
-You hold the cheese.
-And then you...
-Yes, bore it. Basically...
-Linds, be careful.
-Push in hard. And twist.
This is a big moment, everyone. A year in the making.
Nearly lost it!
Then what do we do?
So basically, now what you do is rub it between your fingers.
This is the official way to cheese test. You can try this at home.
Rub some cheese.
-And you have a sniff because it brings out the flavours.
-And then you can try it.
That's very strong. Isn't it?
-Do you like it?
-Er... It is tasty.
No, I'm sorry. I love that.
With a bit of pickle that would be absolutely divine.
It was worth the wait.
It's so good, isn't it, that I think we should use that later in our
-Mother's Day bake, don't you?
Thank you so much for coming in and bringing the cheese.
As you will know, we are very excited because Sport Relief is just
around the corner and it supports some amazing projects helping
children out here in the UK
and abroad who are living very tough lives.
Sport Relief are using sport to help people all around the world.
They have created two special films highlighting the ways they
are making a difference in South Africa.
And I wanted to see what you thought about what they're doing.
Amazing! Guys, thank you so much for joining me.
We have two special films which I would love to show you.
The first one is about Precious and she has grown up in one of
the toughest cities in the entire world. Would you like to watch it?
-Amazing, let's press play.
Hi, I'm Precious and I'm 11 years old and I love skateboarding.
Precious and her family live in one of the most violent cities
in the world.
There's a lot of crime,
which can make growing up there extremely tough.
This is a security gate where they use a fingerprint so that
thieves cannot enter into our flat.
I feel really sorry for her having to live in an area like that.
There was this time when I was walking to the shop when
I saw some people fighting. I thought about them hitting my dad.
I was scared.
My mum and dad are scared because I'm walking alone on the streets.
It must be really terrifying for Precious and her parents.
One day I saw a big sign that a skate park was about to be built,
so they taught us how to skate.
I feel safe, I can be free. There's nowhere else to play like it.
It's helping her to achieve whatever she wants to do.
We don't only do skating, we also learn other subjects.
Before I was, like, shy, but now I am, like, confident.
It made me feel like I can skate, I can do anything.
I really want you to take part in Sport Relief.
Whatever moves you've got, just go for it.
There you go, that's Precious's life. A lot to take in there.
Is there anything any of you would like to say about what you saw?
It was so nice to have an opportunity for her to be
herself with skateboarding.
It's helping her be free and free from her worries as well.
Absolutely right. Who would like to see the next film?
Let's take a look.
Cape Town may boast some of the world's best waves but it
also rates as one of the most dangerous cities on the planet.
One in five young people within its townships come across so much
violence and poverty that they have been left traumatised.
They have got, like, bad problems on their minds already,
so you didn't really want to add more.
They look happy because now they have got friends to talk to.
Surfing made him confident in himself and not to ever give up.
HE SPEAKS OWN LANGUAGE ..that means thank you.
It made them really happy to have something
that they could do and be free.
There's something that they can do that they really enjoy
and it lets them enjoy life.
Giving money to Sport Relief now that I have seen these videos
just makes me really happy to know I have made someone else happy.
Two incredible projects with two incredible young people.
Whatever moves you in 2018...
-Do it for Sport Relief!
That really is so inspirational, and it goes to show why you need
to get involved with Sport Relief, and that is exactly what we
are doing by launching our Mega Mileathon, which is amazing.
-Linds, what are you doing?
-I'm getting my miles in.
Come on, get stepping, because we're collecting loads, aren't we?
-OK, because this year Blue Peter and MOTD Kickabout
have joined forces to collect a million steps.
-What are you doing?!
-This is it. This is me moving...
But the question is, how do you get involved?
I'm so glad you asked. I'm not sure what you're doing there but
you need to head to the Blue Peter website where you'll find a trainer,
you have three to choose from, you need to colour it in,
decorate it, make it epic and let us know what you're doing for
Sport Relief, and let us know how many miles you are pledging.
I've done my trainer here. Red and blue.
I've pledged 20 miles, that's doable.
Can you keep moving, please? Get those steps in.
By either walking, running, skipping, wheeling,
all of your miles add up to our Mega Mileathon totalizer.
But you can't be sitting on a bus or in a car.
You cannot stop. Get going.
Because every mile you pledge, we're going to convert it into
steps on our amazing totalizer.
So, guys, get stepping, get involved.
You need to send those in to the usual address, which is right there.
Get involved, people. It's worth it.
And you have until Wednesday 21st March, and then don't miss
the Sport Relief special on 22nd March, where you can see if
-we reached our target of a million steps.
-You've stopped again.
Keep going. I'm getting a bit tired.
But there's no time for rest because we're off to Wembley for
-my rugby challenge.
-Get it going, Linds.
Rugby - you might know it for tough tackling,
lightning-fast running and incredible passing skills.
But there are actually two different versions - rugby union
and then this, rugby league.
To give me a taste of the sport, I'm taking on a special
Blue Peter challenge during half-time at the biggest and most
historic match in the rugby league calendar - the Challenge Cup final.
And over it goes. Great try!
Under the guidance of my coaches, Kevin Sinfield and Paul Sculthorpe,
I've learnt three of the skills I will need to use on the day...
-Nice soft hands.
But am I ready to face a packed crowd at Wembley Stadium?
It's time to find out.
So, here we are.
The big day has finally arrived and, as you can see, it's hard to miss -
we're at Wembley Stadium for the Challenge Cup final
between Wigan and Hull.
The Challenge Cup is legendary.
For more than 120 years, it's been rugby league's biggest prize
and has produced some unforgettable moments.
Now, can I create another one?
I am so nervous because in just a few hours' time I'm going
to be inside there, on the pitch at half-time,
in front of 65,000 people.
Uh-oh! The only problem is, at this point, I've got no opponent.
Step forward Faye Gaskin.
She's an England international and will be my opponent for
our half-time showdown. Faye, the big day's arrived.
How are you feeling now that we're here,
standing on the edge of Wembley?
I'm really nervous now we're here.
Wembley is massive, especially for anyone who plays rugby league.
That doesn't make me feel good, that you're nervous!
How do you think I feel?
Do you know what?
One of the coolest things about Blue Peter is the access we get.
I am currently on the pitch, and we've been told that we are
allowed to touch this! Here we go.
This is the Challenge Cup trophy and today,
this is what it's all about.
But that's not the only trophy up for grabs today.
Before the big match, the final of the National Boys Year 7
tournament takes place on the Wembley pitch.
Maybe the captain of Castleford's winning team, Noah,
can settle my nerves.
-Noah, buddy, high-five!
-You are the winners! How are you feeling?
I'm absolutely speechless. It's an amazing feeling, to win.
Right, I'm going to get serious, cos I'm going out at half-time
-and I've got to kick a ball over the post. Do you think I can do it?
-If you believe in yourself, you can do it.
-I like that!
That's a very Blue Peter attitude! Have you got any top tips for me?
-Make sure you aim it and put a lot of power in.
Those, my friends, are terrific top tips!
Sadly, the time for advice is over.
Kick-off means that we've got just 40 minutes until our challenge.
Faye and I will be head-to-head in a race to complete
three training drills.
First, we have to throw six passes, after which we'll have to
tackle our coaches, Kevin and Paul, six times.
Finally, the first to kick over the posts wins.
So, Faye, this is the actual tunnel, and we are about to
walk onto the pitch.
There are a lot of people out there. I'm excited, but I feel sick!
Nearly 70,000 people have just witnessed an action-packed
first half, but the real show begins now.
We're off! And Kevin's passing training is working.
By the time I've finished, Faye and I are neck and neck.
Now onto the tackles.
This is exhausting!
Kevin and Paul are cheering us on every step of the way.
Well done, well done, well done!
I've managed to keep up with Faye, though. But hang on!
In the confusion, I thought I'd finished six tackles. I'm one short!
My mistake means Faye has finished ahead of me.
She just needs this kick to win.
What?! She's hit the bar!
Kick this and I win.
I can! How has this happened?!
That was one of the most nerve-racking experiences
of my whole life.
Faye missed it at the last second.
But I managed to do it.
I'm so out of breath but all for the Blue Peter badge.
A massive thank-you to our coaches, Kevin and Paul,
and of course to Faye.
With their help I actually scored the winning kick at Wembley Stadium.
Who else can say that?!
One of the best challenges ever.
And whether it's rugby league or rugby union you love,
make sure you're watching the Six Nations this Saturday.
But now it's time to look at the big badge wall.
But whoa, whoa, whoa!
Not just any badge wall, because this is the...
-Diamond badge wall!
Look at it here... Wow!
-..in all of its diamond glory.
-That was an amazing moment.
Thank you so much for all of your incredible forms
that you've sent in. We're very proud of you.
Harry from Leicestershire has done this.
It's Radzi and I doing our rugby league training. It's amazing.
-I love our little football boots.
-It's so great.
And he says, "I've inspired my friend to attend
"table tennis club with me."
Well, Harry, you're a legend, my friend.
-You're getting a diamond badge.
-Hey, get in! Top lad.
And Thomas loves Helen's tight-rope walk at Battersea Power Station...
It's the best.
..and since then has been asking his parents,
what was their favourite memory?
Well, his dad said that he remembers John Noakes
-on top of Nelson's Column.
-Absolute legend of a man.
Saffron from Oxfordshire has done this.
It's Radzi hanging in mid-air as he passes me the baton
when we both did our wing walking challenge.
One of the best days... Probably THE best day of my life.
-So thank you for sending that in.
If you want to get your hands on your very own diamond badge,
then you already need to at least have one BP badge, all right?
And then head onto the website for all the details.
But, remember, you can only get one of these during 2018
-so you need to move fast.
-Hurry up, people! Limited edish.
Now, we promised you cheesy bakes
and we're going to deliver cheesy bakes.
Let's walk this way. Careful, don't slip.
OK, so this is going to be maybe the best make ever on BP.
-I'm looking forward to it.
-Oh, you should. Get ready.
So if you've got a loved one that you'd like to make something for
on Mother's Day this Sunday, maybe send them out the room.
-Shall we send them out? Get out!
-Get them gone!
It's a surprise because we're going to show you...
-Show them what we're going to make.
-Here we go.
-This is the aim.
-..the perfect breakfast in bed.
-Now, come on!
-Savoury hearts and sweet flowers. Oh, yeah!
So you can make this for any loved one.
-We're going to be making it for our mums today, aren't we?
-Shall we get started?
-I'm going to do these beautiful
flower things here.
So all of the ingredients, all the things you need,
are of course on the BP website.
So you can check those out a little bit later.
I've made a head start here.
So what I've done is got my pastry, I've rolled it out.
I pre-bought it just to save time because, you know...
-Washing up and stuff like that.
-Yeah, washing up as well.
And then this is about eight centimetres wide, OK?
Let's get going on the petals. Now, to make these beautiful apples,
they're very sweet and delicious, what we've done is just cover them
in a little bit of water, a little bit of cranberry sauce,
plonk them into the microwave for about two to three minutes
and that will soften them and make them look really beautiful.
If you don't have a microwave, you can simmer these in the pan
and it'll still work and make your kitchen smell great.
So let's get going on the petals.
-I've brushed some egg on here to make it nice and sticky.
And then you grab your little bits of apple.
Obviously, get some help when you're cutting that up.
Place it nice and neatly.
A top tip is just to get the curved edge of the apple going over
the edge of the pastry there.
That'll give a really good petal effect.
I'm going to keep going on these. Ty, you make a start on those.
Absolutely, I'm doing the savoury hearts, OK?
So I'm making a very easy version of a dish called Welsh rarebit.
-Here's all the ingredients.
And, again, they're on the BP website
in case you want to check them out.
So it's very, very easy.
All you need to do is add a beaten egg into the mixture.
And then we're going to take a tablespoon of mayonnaise.
-Oh, look at that.
-I love mayonnaise. I put it in everything.
I do. I'm a big fan.
And then we're going to take a teaspoon or two...
-Just one because I'm not a fan of mustard.
-You don't like it, do you?
-No, I can't do the mustard.
-I love mustard!
That's it, a teaspoon of mustard.
And then finish with a big splash of Worcester sauce.
Right, so I'm going to start mixing that one together now.
-Look at that, look at that! Perfect.
-The smells are good.
Now, people, it's cheese time, all right?
So I'm going to take two handfuls of cheese
and add that into the mixture.
-Just like anything in life, add more cheese.
-If in doubt...
-..get more cheese.
And then I'm going to start mixing that one there together.
OK, you mix, I'm going to get my cheese on over here.
So I've laid out all my apples, like you can see there,
and then get your cheese and do exactly the same -
plonk it along this top layer here, like so.
I'm going to make mine super cheesy.
I know you're thinking cheese and apple is weird, it's not.
-Doesn't it taste good? The crew know. CREW:
Trust us. So then get your cranberry sauce, that also goes really well
with cheese, and this is just going to make it nice and sweet.
So just plonk it along the top. You don't need too much.
There we go. We've got a bit of cranberry sauce along there.
-And then it's time... Shall I roll it? CREW:
Do it! Roll it!
This could go a number of ways.
Hopefully... I think you've just got to be a little bit aggressive.
-There's the magic.
-You say that.
My apples are popping out a little bit.
It's fine, we can add those in later.
-There you go!
-Perfect. Look at that.
-You're really good at that.
-You're really good at that.
Some of my apples came out!
And it looks more like a palm tree.
So this is what they should have looked like...
-It was a nice attempt.
not terrible palm trees.
So I'm just going to put mine to the side, no-one needs to see that.
And then you need to get your oven gloves, get them into the oven
for about 25 minutes on 210 degrees.
-Ty, how are you getting on?
-I'm good, Linds.
I've got this cheese mixture sorted.
Now I'm just taking off the edges diagonally to bring our heart
-together out of this slice of toast.
Yeah, I know, it looks good. So then we're going to pop a triangle
at the top of the slice here.
And then we have our heart shape with this one here
-on the baking tray.
-I see! That's cute.
Take the cheese mixture and spread it across.
-It looks like scrambled eggs.
-Like that. Yeah. Really good.
And then you can even use a slice of tomato to decorate it.
And then pop it under the grill just for about ten minutes
on a medium heat
so the cheese starts to bubble and goes a little bit brown on top.
-My mouth's watering -
especially because this is what they should look like
when you're all finished.
-Look at that!
If that doesn't make your loved ones smile on Mother's Day
-then I don't know what will.
-Nothing will. Thank us later.
All the details you need are on the Blue Peter website.
And whilst you're there, there's loads to do. Check this out.
Three, two, one...
-So much to see and do on the BP website.
I really do love it. But now it's time for Fan Of The Month.
We thought we'd do this in quite a cheesy way.
It's been a cheese-based show.
So we're actually standing by with a special cheese thing.
She's ready, so hit the music.
BIG BAND MUSIC PLAYS
March's Fan Of The Month is always friendly and has four badges
already and often posts inspirational quotes like,
"Be a pineapple.
"Stand tall, wear a crown and be sweet on the inside."
That's quite moving. I think we should reveal it.
March's Fan Of The Month is... Drum roll, please.
Here she is, it's Biggest CBBC Fan 13!
CHEERING A massive round of applause.
You're getting the block of cheese. That looks delicious.
If you'd like to be Fan Of The Month as well, you can be.
Make sure you log onto Fan Club Live which is happening after the show.
You'll also be able to see who spotted Shelley.
You're a legend, well done.
-Thank you so much for all of your cheesy things today.
-We've loved having you here.
-And thank you to you as well, Tyler.
-Do you know what?
-It's been lovely.
-Have you had a good time?
-We've got a tiny present for you just before you go.
You didn't know we were going to do this, but you have been on
Blue Peter before, you're here again,
which means you've earned your very own silver Blue Peter badge!
No way! Come on!
-Your mum's going to be proud.
-Thanks so much.
-You can come any time.
-Oh, that's amazing.
Well, listen, don't miss next week's show
when we have super skilled BMXer Matti Hemmings.
As well as that you can catch up and see how Radzi and I have
been getting on with our Sport Relief challenge.
-We'll see you next week. Bye!
