Coming up on today's show, we've got our brand-new puppy here.

6:29:426:29:45

American band R5 perform exclusively for you. Oh, and there's a puppy.

6:29:456:29:49

And Lindsey and I put our dance skills to the test.

6:29:496:29:51

Oh, and did we mention there's a puppy?

6:29:516:29:53

That's all coming up on today's live Blue Peter.

6:29:536:29:55

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

6:30:106:30:12

-Hi!

-Hello!

-Hi there!

-How are you doing? You're watching Blue Peter.

6:30:126:30:16

-Welcome to the new look studio. Look at it.

-It looks amazing!

-That's

6:30:166:30:19

why I'm wearing a shirt that looks like it's got wallpaper on it. Look,

6:30:196:30:22

lovely Blue Peter badge colours all through the theme, a massive badge

6:30:226:30:25

at the back. Radzi, you've been busy with that paintbrush this week!

6:30:256:30:28

-Don't like to boast, guys, don't like to boast.

-Good job and look who else

6:30:286:30:32

is in the studio. It's our brand-new little guide dog puppy!

6:30:326:30:34

-Hello!

-How cute is it?!

-Now...yeah, "it." We're not mentioning him or

6:30:346:30:37

she just yet, because you've got to watch something first and, once

6:30:376:30:40

you've watched it, we'll then do a announcement that tells you more.

6:30:406:30:44

-It's hard not to say anything.

-It's hard, but you're going to have to

6:30:446:30:46

wait. Now, anyone who's... Aw, big yawn! Anyone who has seen

6:30:466:30:50

this puppy today has been so smiley

6:30:506:30:53

and we want to know what makes you happy and smiley?

6:30:536:30:55

What makes you smile, Linds?

6:30:556:30:57

-It's got to be your jokes, Radzi.

-Yes!

-All the time!

6:30:576:30:59

What about you, Barns?

6:30:596:31:01

My grandma makes me smile. Whenever she makes home-cooked food,

6:31:016:31:04

I love it. It's like roasties and gravy and that makes me smile.

6:31:046:31:08

Well, Blue Peter is a live show

6:31:086:31:10

and we love it when you get in touch.

6:31:106:31:11

So, leave a comment on our website...

6:31:116:31:13

You'll be seeing your comments online a bit later,

6:31:156:31:17

when R5 are performing right here in the studio. You'll see it going

6:31:176:31:20

across the bottom of the screen, so look out for yours.

6:31:206:31:23

How cute is she being? Now, today, it is all about you.

6:31:236:31:25

Can we cue the music, please?

6:31:256:31:27

-# It's all about you... #

-Oh, here we go. Have a little dance.

6:31:276:31:31

She's loving it. Now...

6:31:316:31:33

Blue Peter have a fantastic relationship with Guide Dogs UK

6:31:336:31:36

and 50 years ago, the presenters Chris and Valerie

6:31:366:31:40

got Honey the puppy

6:31:406:31:42

and trained her up to be a guide dog and now, five decades on,

6:31:426:31:45

it's time for me to have a go, and I've been catching up with

6:31:456:31:48

this little puppy over the last few weeks and seen what she's got up to.

6:31:486:31:51

Now, it's time for you to find out how we chose it.

6:31:516:31:54

PUPPIES CRY

6:32:006:32:03

This is the Guide Dogs for the Blind breeding centre,

6:32:046:32:07

and I've rushed here today because something very special is happening.

6:32:076:32:11

So, it's about nine in the morning, we've just got here

6:32:116:32:14

and Yvonne, the mum, has just had six puppies

6:32:146:32:16

and this is about to be number seven.

6:32:166:32:18

We've got Suzanne who's helping us today.

6:32:186:32:21

PUPPIES YELP

6:32:216:32:23

How is she doing, Suzanne? Is this it?

6:32:236:32:25

She's doing really well. There you go.

6:32:256:32:28

She's just having a couple of contractions to help the pup along.

6:32:286:32:31

We don't know if it'll be yellow or black.

6:32:316:32:34

She's had two yellow ones there and four black ones.

6:32:346:32:38

Good girl.

6:32:386:32:39

Come on, you can do it.

6:32:396:32:41

She's probably getting a bit tired, isn't she?

6:32:416:32:43

'An hour after the sixth puppy was born, it finally happened.

6:32:436:32:46

'The seventh puppy arrived and it was another yellow one.'

6:32:466:32:49

I'm just going to give him a little rub.

6:32:496:32:51

There we go.

6:32:536:32:54

Now, we're gentle, but we're quite rigorous...

6:32:566:32:59

..just to drain out any fluids.

6:33:006:33:03

PUPPY YELPS

6:33:036:33:04

They're so cute!

6:33:046:33:05

Hey, there's your mum.

6:33:056:33:07

PUPPY YELPS

6:33:076:33:08

I'm just going to give him a little weigh.

6:33:086:33:10

'Suzanne weighs the puppy to make sure it's healthy.'

6:33:106:33:13

I think she's about average. She's just over 0.4 of a kilo,

6:33:136:33:16

so, 0.41.

6:33:166:33:17

'Each puppy gets a special mark so that we can tell them all apart.

6:33:196:33:22

'This one's got a little pink heart.'

6:33:226:33:25

Well done, Mum.

6:33:256:33:26

So, Yvonne's doing really well.

6:33:276:33:29

She's had all seven of her puppies and they're really happy

6:33:296:33:32

and healthy, but she just needs help with that last puppy.

6:33:326:33:35

So, to get number eight out, she's going to be taken to the vet's

6:33:356:33:38

and get a bit of help there.

6:33:386:33:40

'Yvonne had two more puppies, but, sadly, only one survived.'

6:33:406:33:43

Well done.

6:33:436:33:44

The puppies are now four weeks old.

6:33:546:33:58

And this is where the puppies are playing

6:33:586:34:00

-and Suzanne's been looking after them. Hi, Suzanne.

-Hi, Lindsey.

6:34:006:34:03

-Hello, Yvonne.

-Come and meet Yvonne and her pups.

-Oh, my goodness!

6:34:036:34:06

-She's got eight little ones.

-Hello!

6:34:066:34:09

And how do you know they're doing really well and they're healthy?

6:34:126:34:14

They're all progressing as we would expect them to.

6:34:146:34:17

Their eyes and their ears are all starting to open now.

6:34:176:34:20

We, obviously, health check the pups every day just to make sure

6:34:206:34:23

there's no signs of ill health, and these guys are all fine.

6:34:236:34:27

Why is socialising really important and what exactly is it?

6:34:276:34:31

It's a really important part of the pup's development.

6:34:316:34:34

All a lot of fun, getting them used to anything

6:34:346:34:37

they might come in contact with out there in the big wide world.

6:34:376:34:40

OK, it's time to feed these little pups.

6:34:406:34:43

-Would you like to give us a hand?

-Absolutely. I'd love to. Let's go.

6:34:436:34:47

Go on!

6:34:476:34:49

He's licking the bowl clean.

6:34:496:34:51

Why is it important that they've each got their own bowl?

6:34:516:34:53

Just so we know that they're getting the right amount of feed

6:34:536:34:56

and that nobody's being a bit more greedy than the other one,

6:34:566:34:59

if we've got a slower eater.

6:34:596:35:01

All done.

6:35:026:35:03

Time to play.

6:35:036:35:05

Back here, full of lunch.

6:35:056:35:07

In you go.

6:35:076:35:08

I've had such a good time with these puppies

6:35:086:35:10

and I can't believe how much they've grown.

6:35:106:35:12

And we still don't know which one of these is

6:35:126:35:15

going to end up as our Blue Peter guide dog.

6:35:156:35:17

One more thing for you, Lindsey,

6:35:176:35:18

is these pups are going to be named with the letter I,

6:35:186:35:21

so all the litter will be starting with I,

6:35:216:35:23

and that's so that we can keep a track of their brothers and sisters,

6:35:236:35:26

and to see how they're all progressing and developing.

6:35:266:35:28

-I! That's actually quite a tricky one, isn't it?

-It is.

6:35:286:35:31

That's a hard letter. What can we have?

6:35:316:35:33

Um, Ivor, Ivan, Izzy, Igor...

6:35:336:35:36

-SHE GASPS

-Ian!

6:35:366:35:39

No. I don't think Ian.

6:35:396:35:40

The puppies are now about six weeks old and they are still super cute.

6:35:496:35:53

But, today, it's the puppy profiling assessment and, Dave, you're going

6:35:536:35:56

-to be assessing the puppies, aren't you?

-That's right.

6:35:566:35:59

Now, it sounds a bit complicated,

6:35:596:36:00

"puppy profiling assessment", but, really,

6:36:006:36:02

it's just a series of fun games and puppy tests, isn't it?

6:36:026:36:06

From the puppy's point of view, it's fun,

6:36:066:36:08

it's games they go through, so, they quite enjoy coming in here.

6:36:086:36:10

And you test them on a scale of one to seven, so what does that mean?

6:36:106:36:13

'What we're looking for is an ideal middle score, so if we're getting

6:36:136:36:16

'sevens, that means that they're perhaps a little bit too confident.'

6:36:166:36:20

-OK.

-If they're getting ones, they're perhaps a little bit too shy,

6:36:206:36:22

-so we want a nice middle score.

-Somewhere in the middle.

6:36:226:36:25

-Shall we get testing then?

-Let's do it.

-Come on.

6:36:256:36:27

So, what we're going to do, the first one here, if you'd like to do it,

6:36:276:36:30

Lindsey, is we're going to get you to walk down to the far end of the room.

6:36:306:36:34

I want to see how responsive the puppy is and whether it will

6:36:346:36:36

follow you confidently and come back with you.

6:36:366:36:38

Come on, puppy. Come on, well done.

6:36:386:36:40

-Well done.

-That's it and then back up again.

-Back again.

6:36:406:36:42

Come on. Good job!

6:36:426:36:44

-Lovely.

-That was quite good, wasn't it?

6:36:446:36:46

That was more than good, that was really good, because she followed

6:36:466:36:49

you nice and confidently, so that gives us a nice even score of four.

6:36:496:36:52

-Well done!

-Great start.

-Good job.

6:36:526:36:54

'The games could be about how the pup reacts to a toy being thrown,

6:36:546:36:58

'or being called over a ramp,

6:36:586:36:59

'through a tunnel, or just a reaction to a sound.'

6:36:596:37:03

So, how did they get on?

6:37:036:37:04

They actually did really, really well.

6:37:046:37:06

And they're certainly all going to pass based on what we saw today.

6:37:066:37:09

We still don't know which one is our Blue Peter guide dog,

6:37:096:37:13

-so which one is it, Dave?

-I'll just check.

6:37:136:37:15

-There she is.

-Hello!

6:37:166:37:18

So, our new Blue Peter puppy is a very, very cute little girl,

6:37:206:37:25

but we still don't have a name, so we're going to have to get

6:37:256:37:27

back to the studio and find out what you're called.

6:37:276:37:30

Hello!

6:37:326:37:33

So, you know it's a little girl and now I can reveal,

6:37:336:37:36

the Blue Peter guide dog's name is...

6:37:366:37:39

-Drum roll!

-DRUM ROLL

6:37:396:37:40

It's Iggy!

6:37:406:37:42

-Hey!

-Hello, Iggy!

-Hello, Iggy!

6:37:426:37:44

She perked up there, didn't she? She heard her name.

6:37:446:37:46

She knows her name all right. Iggy, welcome to Blue Peter.

6:37:466:37:48

No Blue Peter dog would be complete without

6:37:486:37:50

their own Blue Peter badge and Iggy's got one right here,

6:37:506:37:53

and on the other side, it even says her name.

6:37:536:37:55

-She's giving it a sniff.

-She wants it.

6:37:556:37:56

Iggy, you're getting it. Is it in her mouth? It's in her mouth.

6:37:566:37:59

We're going to spend the next year getting to know Iggy a bit better.

6:37:596:38:02

She's going to be in the studio sometimes where

6:38:026:38:04

she gets used to the sights and sounds of telly world,

6:38:046:38:06

and eating her own collar, and we're going to be catching up

6:38:066:38:09

with how she's getting trained throughout the year as well.

6:38:096:38:12

That's right. Now, we want Iggy to be the best trainee guide dog

6:38:126:38:14

she possibly can be, so that, when she's older,

6:38:146:38:17

she can help to look after people who are visually impaired or blind.

6:38:176:38:20

Shall we go for our first studio walk after you've yawned?

6:38:206:38:22

-That was a yes.

-Come on. Steps are a bit big for you, aren't they, Iggy?

6:38:226:38:25

Let's go down there. Let's see if she'll follow me. Come on, Iggy!

6:38:256:38:28

Come on, Iggy!

6:38:286:38:30

Good girl! Oh, she's gone over for a play!

6:38:306:38:34

Come on, Iggy. Let's sit on the couch.

6:38:346:38:37

She's having a bit of fun there, saying hello. Let's grab her.

6:38:376:38:40

Over here, we've got Jane and her dog, Whitney, and we've got Rainbow

6:38:406:38:43

and his dog, Drake, and, of course, Richard, you're going to be helping

6:38:436:38:46

-me all through the Iggy process, aren't you?

-I am.

-Including now,

6:38:466:38:49

putting a lead on her so she can have a little play down there.

6:38:496:38:52

Now, Jane, I'm going to talk to you first about your dog, Whitney.

6:38:526:38:55

Now, what does she mean to you?

6:38:556:38:56

Whitney means the world to me.

6:38:566:38:59

She's really my best friend and she helps guiding me to school

6:38:596:39:03

and guiding me to the local shop.

6:39:036:39:05

Has she made a real difference to your life, would you say?

6:39:056:39:07

She's opened a whole new world for me, like, before I had Whitney,

6:39:076:39:11

I couldn't even go to the local shop for me dad's papers.

6:39:116:39:14

Well, she's excited to be here and I can see why she's your best friend.

6:39:146:39:17

She's becoming Iggy's as well at the moment.

6:39:176:39:19

Now, talk to me about your dog, Rainbow.

6:39:196:39:21

It's called Drake and he's a buddy dog. So, what does that mean?

6:39:216:39:24

Um, it's a retired guide dog or a guide dog that hasn't made it.

6:39:246:39:29

OK, and what does that mean he does with you?

6:39:296:39:31

Do you have a good time together, you two?

6:39:316:39:33

Yeah, we go to the park and go to the beach.

6:39:336:39:36

And I hear you like audio tapes, is that right?

6:39:366:39:38

-Yeah.

-What does he like listening to together?

6:39:386:39:41

-The Famous Five.

-The Famous Five! I'm a huge Enid Blyton fan.

6:39:416:39:44

I really like that.

6:39:446:39:45

Now, Richard, Iggy's got a big year ahead of her, hasn't she?

6:39:456:39:47

-She certainly has.

-What is in store with her training?

6:39:476:39:50

Well, first of all, we're going to start off by showing her everything

6:39:506:39:53

in the environment that she's got to get used to as an adult dog.

6:39:536:39:56

-Including other dogs.

-Including other dogs, yeah.

6:39:566:39:59

Showing her public transport, cars, traffic, the whole thing really.

6:39:596:40:04

And then hopefully, in a year's time,

6:40:046:40:06

she'll turn out to be a beautiful dog like Whitney.

6:40:066:40:09

So, what can I do, specifically,

6:40:096:40:11

-to help Iggy be the best trainee dog she can be?

-Right.

6:40:116:40:14

-First of all, we're going to start off carrying her around.

-OK.

6:40:146:40:18

Showing her the town and city centre conditions, that sort of thing.

6:40:186:40:21

And we're going to get her to learn through play and positive reward.

6:40:216:40:24

This is the first year of her life and she's really got to enjoy it.

6:40:246:40:27

-She won't have a problem playing, will she?

-No, no...

6:40:276:40:30

Look, she's having a great time with Whitney there, isn't she?

6:40:306:40:32

She's very happy with Whitney, yes.

6:40:326:40:34

Now, guys, you are two of the first Blue Peter viewers to meet Iggy.

6:40:346:40:37

How would you describe her?

6:40:376:40:39

-Amazing. She's so cute.

-She is pretty cute, isn't she?

6:40:396:40:42

What about you, Rainbow? Do you like her?

6:40:426:40:45

Yeah, it's just tremendous.

6:40:456:40:47

She really is tremendous. She's a little ball of fluff and we

6:40:476:40:49

absolutely love her. Guys, thank you so much for coming in today.

6:40:496:40:52

Well done on your Blue Peter badges, they're very deserved.

6:40:526:40:55

And if you head to the website...

6:40:556:40:56

..you can see photos like this

6:40:596:41:00

and lots more. There we are, Iggy and I, chilling out.

6:41:006:41:03

Keep checking back over the next few months and they're all there.

6:41:036:41:06

Guys, thank you very much. Boys, it's over to you.

6:41:066:41:08

Thanks. We're going to have some fun with Iggy over the next year.

6:41:086:41:11

Well done, that could have been another Blue Peter moment with

6:41:116:41:14

an animal catastrophe. We did well. Right, let's talk about your posts.

6:41:146:41:17

We mentioned that a very famous guest is going to be

6:41:176:41:19

coming to the studio this week, with a waggly tail,

6:41:196:41:22

and she proved to be very popular.

6:41:226:41:24

-Nice! Nice!

-That's all I've got. Let's have a look, shall we?

6:41:246:41:28

Yes, well, there's lots of Iggy Pup post here.

6:41:286:41:30

Can you see a picture that you sent in? Can you spot it?

6:41:306:41:33

It's like a challenge. Is yours here? If it is, congratulations.

6:41:336:41:36

Now, Sophie from Kendal sent this one. We've picked this one in

6:41:366:41:39

particular for this week because it's got all the Blue Peter dogs

6:41:396:41:42

that have been on the show. It's brilliant. There's Barney.

6:41:426:41:44

I miss Barney, the little sausage. And there's Petra the scary one

6:41:446:41:47

at the front, but still a very nice Blue Peter pet.

6:41:476:41:50

Maybe we could stick Iggy on here to make her part of the family.

6:41:506:41:52

Nice, absolutely, part of the family.

6:41:526:41:54

This is from Gracey, she's 12, and every single person

6:41:546:41:57

in the Blue Peter office thought this was absolutely whopper-tron!

6:41:576:41:59

Just look at that! All three of us with moving limbs! Love that, Gracey.

6:41:596:42:04

Love it. Now, let's take a look at Noah's. This one's pretty cool.

6:42:046:42:07

This ones got all the Blue Peter badges hidden

6:42:076:42:09

somewhere in the picture. Can you see them?

6:42:096:42:11

You can probably spot a few straightaway, but this one here,

6:42:116:42:15

the gold Blue Peter Badge, just by me, that's the sun.

6:42:156:42:18

And what about the lion's eyes?

6:42:186:42:19

How cool is that? They're Blue Peter badges.

6:42:196:42:21

Thank you to everybody for getting in touch this week.

6:42:216:42:23

Suzannah from Hampshire sent this one in.

6:42:236:42:25

She was inspired from last week. It has bubble football.

6:42:256:42:28

That was our World Cup special.

6:42:286:42:29

I love the World Cup. How good's it been?

6:42:296:42:31

I love the World Cup. It works out well this picture, because

6:42:316:42:33

she looks a bit like a tortoise and she's also playing football.

6:42:336:42:36

I nearly said turtle. That would have been the wrong thing to say!

6:42:366:42:39

Don't offend her, don't offend her!

6:42:396:42:41

So, Shelley, let's talk about Shelley.

6:42:416:42:43

She's a tortoise and she likes the World Cup too, doesn't she?

6:42:436:42:46

She's been making a prediction for one match on each of the days

6:42:466:42:50

in the World Cup, and the very first match she predicted was in

6:42:506:42:53

Brazil versus Croatia. She thought Brazil would win, and they won!

6:42:536:42:56

-Got off to a flyer.

-What a fine start.

6:42:566:42:57

And, tell me, Radzi, how did Shelley get on since then?

6:42:576:43:00

Not the best after that initial bit of good luck, as you can see.

6:43:006:43:04

So, I'll explain to you what you're seeing there.

6:43:046:43:06

So, any country highlighted in yellow,

6:43:066:43:08

they are countries which Shelley has selected.

6:43:086:43:11

The ticks and crosses tell you whether she got it right or not

6:43:116:43:14

and, as you can see, it's just nothing but crosses

6:43:146:43:16

after the first one and the matches weren't close.

6:43:166:43:18

5-1, Netherlands. 4-0, Cameroon and Croatia. 4-0, Germany, Portugal.

6:43:186:43:22

But we don't know the Uruguay, England prediction yet.

6:43:226:43:25

You'll have to go online to find that one out.

6:43:256:43:27

Go to the website which is all in the same place, bbc.co.uk/bluepeter.

6:43:276:43:31

Shelley knows nothing about football or commentating for that matter.

6:43:316:43:34

But someone who does is Hacker. If you want to see that happen, press

6:43:346:43:37

the red button. It's on Sunday, 5pm, for Belgium versus Russia.

6:43:376:43:40

It's going to be a lot of fun.

6:43:406:43:42

Even if you don't like football, it'll be entertaining.

6:43:426:43:44

When it comes to slow-movers, Shelley's up there, but, so am I.

6:43:446:43:47

Lindsey and I had a bit of a challenge recently

6:43:476:43:49

-and you have danced with Lindsey, so you know what it's all about.

-Yes.

6:43:496:43:52

I've danced against Lindsey with the cast of Next Step and,

6:43:526:43:55

I'll tell you what, that was tough. That was tough.

6:43:556:43:57

Well, I had to dance with Lindsey, and I was the leader, which she

6:43:576:44:00

found very difficult, this is the Lindy Hop.

6:44:006:44:02

We got entered into a competition. Yeah, it's funny.

6:44:026:44:05

I've been asked by Blue Peter to come to a dance studio in Manchester

6:44:066:44:10

to learn a very special dance routine.

6:44:106:44:12

It's very simple, really. You just go on one leg and do this!

6:44:126:44:16

Linds, what you doing?

6:44:166:44:18

The Lindsey Hop!

6:44:186:44:19

Right?

6:44:206:44:22

Barney!

6:44:226:44:23

Actually, Lindsey, it's called the Lindy Hop

6:44:246:44:27

and it became popular in the 1920s and 1930s.

6:44:276:44:30

That's why the men wear 1930s suits

6:44:306:44:32

and the girls wear skirts or dresses from that era.

6:44:326:44:35

The Lindy Hop is known for being a fast-paced, high energy dance

6:44:356:44:38

and these experts are Lindy Hop champions Ben and Robyn.

6:44:386:44:42

Looks snazzy!

6:44:426:44:43

You guys are absolutely amazing.

6:44:446:44:46

Ben and Robin, how long have you been Lindy Hopping?

6:44:466:44:48

About eight years.

6:44:486:44:51

I'm kind of rookie compared to some people.

6:44:516:44:54

I've only been going for three or four years.

6:44:546:44:57

You make it look effortless. How easy is it to learn, really?

6:44:576:44:59

To pick up the basics it's really simple.

6:44:596:45:01

We'll get you dancing in no time at all.

6:45:016:45:03

Yeah, just put a bit of character in it, have some fun,

6:45:036:45:06

and you'll be all right.

6:45:066:45:07

Character I can do, the dancing side of it I'm not so sure.

6:45:076:45:09

I've seen Barney dance, it's pretty horrific.

6:45:096:45:11

We know it's Blue Peter and we know we're learning this,

6:45:116:45:14

but there's got to be more to it, hasn't there?

6:45:146:45:16

There's a little bit more to it.

6:45:166:45:18

Coming up is the London Swing Festival

6:45:186:45:20

and there's a big competition called the London Jitterbug Championships,

6:45:206:45:23

and we thought we'd get you guys involved, get you entering

6:45:236:45:26

-one of the competitions on the night.

-OK, let's go.

6:45:266:45:29

'We couldn't put it off any longer - it was time to learn some moves.'

6:45:296:45:33

So, bend our legs a little.

6:45:356:45:38

It'll look like this. It'll be back, step, triple step, and triple step.

6:45:386:45:42

'We need to master a number of steps for our Lindy Hop routine.

6:45:426:45:45

'The triple step is one of the basic ones.'

6:45:456:45:48

-And four, five, six...

-See, I have a tendency to look at my feet.

6:45:486:45:51

I want to know what I'm doing.

6:45:516:45:52

One, two, triple step, triple step.

6:45:566:45:59

A nice little turn out...

6:45:596:46:01

-And then that way.

-Perfect.

6:46:036:46:04

-Rock, step, triple...

-Under the arm.

6:46:046:46:07

'I thought this would be easy

6:46:076:46:08

'but it's a lot more difficult than it looks.'

6:46:086:46:11

And under the arm.

6:46:116:46:13

-Is that right?

-Yes!

-I can't even tell if it's right.

6:46:136:46:16

One, two, three, four...

6:46:196:46:20

'This might look like running on the spot

6:46:206:46:23

'but the Charleston was THE dance craze of the 1920s.'

6:46:236:46:26

Having fun, Linds?

6:46:266:46:29

OK, music, please.

6:46:296:46:30

MUSIC: "In The Mood" by Glenn Miller

6:46:306:46:32

It's like this.

6:46:366:46:38

Hop. Up.

6:46:386:46:40

You went so high.

6:46:406:46:41

'The pop jump is a mini jump designed to impress the judges.'

6:46:416:46:45

SHE SHRIEKS

6:46:456:46:46

Can we have a separate part of film just for Lindsey's sound effects?

6:46:466:46:49

It helps me dance better.

6:46:496:46:51

Here's a five-second burst of just Lindsey's sound effects. Ready? Go.

6:46:516:46:54

SHE SHRIEKS

6:46:546:46:55

Wha!

6:46:556:46:57

WHAA!

6:46:576:46:59

Wha!

6:46:596:47:00

Whoa!

6:47:006:47:03

-It's getting there.

-So hard.

-If you think about where we were

6:47:036:47:05

-when we first started this morning...

-Yeah.

6:47:056:47:07

..we're doing all right. Am I leading better?

6:47:076:47:10

Yeah.

6:47:106:47:11

'Before we knew it, the big day was upon us.'

6:47:136:47:17

So, we've been learning Lindy Hop since Monday.

6:47:176:47:19

It's now Friday, which means we've had three days to get this right.

6:47:196:47:22

Yeah, it took Ben and Robin years to master this and now we're just

6:47:226:47:25

hours away from the big event. Let's go get ready.

6:47:256:47:27

Yeah, I've actually got a doctor's appointment...

6:47:276:47:30

No, Barney, you're coming with me.

6:47:306:47:32

'With everyone arriving it was time for us to triple step to it

6:47:346:47:36

'and hop into our costumes.'

6:47:366:47:38

-What do you think?

-Yes! You look amazing.

6:47:406:47:43

-I think we're ready, aren't we?

-Fives? Come on, then.

6:47:436:47:45

'We got our number and with the rest of the competitors looking good,

6:47:476:47:50

'we nervously put in some last-minute practice backstage.'

6:47:506:47:54

'If anyone could give us some final words of advice,

6:47:576:48:00

'it was Strictly Come Dancing dancer and guest judge for the night,

6:48:006:48:03

'Natalie Lowe.'

6:48:036:48:04

We thought we'd grab you to get some tips on what you think we should do.

6:48:046:48:07

I would play it cool.

6:48:076:48:09

Play it like you know what you're doing, even when you don't.

6:48:096:48:13

And enjoy it. It's the number one rule in dancing.

6:48:136:48:16

-What number are you?

-311.

-311.

-Ten points, ten points.

-Make us win.

6:48:166:48:21

-Right, let's go do this.

-We'll see you out there.

-Good luck.

6:48:216:48:24

Thank you!

6:48:246:48:26

All right, let's get our competitors on to the dance floor.

6:48:266:48:29

All the way from Blue Peter, 311,

6:48:296:48:33

Barney Harwood and Lindsey Russell.

6:48:336:48:36

'There was no more time for chat.

6:48:366:48:39

'It was time for us to take to the dance floor.

6:48:396:48:41

'This was not going to be easy.

6:48:426:48:44

'We were competing against 15 other couples dancing at the same time,

6:48:446:48:48

'some of whom had been practising for up to a year.

6:48:486:48:51

'And we had just three minutes in which to win the judges over.'

6:48:516:48:54

'It wasn't long before the nerves settled

6:48:596:49:01

'and we started to really enjoy ourselves.'

6:49:016:49:04

-BOTH: Five, six, seven, and...

-Whoo!

6:49:046:49:07

'Which was great because the judges weren't just scoring us

6:49:076:49:10

'on routine and ability - we could pick up extra points

6:49:106:49:12

'for looking like we were having a good time.'

6:49:126:49:15

'We were even bringing out the big moves.'

6:49:186:49:21

Whoo!

6:49:216:49:23

Here we go. Five, six, seven, eight...

6:49:246:49:26

'And for our big finish... '

6:49:316:49:33

'It was all over. That was amazing.'

6:49:376:49:39

-Well done.

-Group hug in the middle, I think.

6:49:396:49:41

'The dance was over

6:49:436:49:45

'but we weren't going to find out the results just yet.'

6:49:456:49:47

It doesn't matter about the results, we've had such a brilliant night.

6:49:506:49:54

I can't believe how much we've learned in just two days.

6:49:546:49:56

-Not a bad effort, is it?

-Fives all round.

-Boom.

6:49:566:49:58

Only one way to end this film. "The Lindsey Hop."

6:49:586:50:02

SHE LAUGHS

6:50:026:50:03

Yeah, nice one, Barney, always finish on a strong joke(!)

6:50:036:50:05

That is one of the must fun evenings I've had for such a long time.

6:50:056:50:08

It's a very difficult dance to master but we came 7th out of 16!

6:50:086:50:11

I think that's amazing. High-five.

6:50:116:50:14

I danced with the Next Step with you as well and that was tough,

6:50:146:50:17

-but this was incredibly hard.

-It was really hard.

6:50:176:50:19

Guys, you've bigged yourself up.

6:50:196:50:21

Blue Peter is a live show, please cue the music,

6:50:216:50:23

it's time for a signature move. Ready?

6:50:236:50:26

-Here we go.

-Five, six, seven...

6:50:266:50:29

SWING MUSIC PLAYS

6:50:296:50:32

-Big finish.

-Big finish.

6:50:366:50:39

-Whoo!

-Give it up for them.

6:50:396:50:42

Even everyone sat there on the Blue Peter sofa,

6:50:426:50:44

they loved that almost as much as I did.

6:50:446:50:46

Now, from this pair of performers to a group of superstars. Meet R5.

6:50:466:50:49

R5 rocketed onto the music scene in 2009. Since then they've gone

6:50:516:50:54

from strength to strength,

6:50:546:50:56

wracking up over 30 million hits for their music online.

6:50:566:50:59

The pop rock band are made up members Ross, Riker, Rydel, Rocky,

6:50:596:51:02

and Ratliff - four siblings and one very good friend.

6:51:026:51:05

# Remember what I did tonight... #

6:51:056:51:07

Earlier this year they were announced as winners

6:51:076:51:09

at the Radio Disney Music Awards

6:51:096:51:11

and in the past year they've toured 17 countries and sold out 50 shows.

6:51:116:51:15

It's a good time to be R5.

6:51:156:51:17

And it's an even better time to have them in the studio.

6:51:176:51:20

Guys, welcome to the show.

6:51:206:51:22

-Hey, thanks for having us.

-Good to see you.

-So good to see you.

6:51:226:51:24

I've got to say, I love my brothers but I'm not sure

6:51:246:51:27

if I could be in a band with them.

6:51:276:51:30

Is there a lot of family rivalry?

6:51:306:51:32

Not really. We get along great.

6:51:326:51:34

I think we're the exact opposite of Oasis.

6:51:346:51:37

Yeah, that would be the exact opposite.

6:51:376:51:39

And what are you guys up to whilst you're here in the UK?

6:51:396:51:41

We're here to support a thing called Change For Life,

6:51:416:51:44

which is an affiliation with Disney.

6:51:446:51:46

Basically, we donated our song Loud

6:51:466:51:48

to help encourage people to basically get active.

6:51:486:51:50

It's a really cool thing.

6:51:506:51:52

We believe in it tremendously and we're really excited.

6:51:526:51:54

Talking about encouraging activity,

6:51:546:51:56

we've been asking the Blue Peter viewers to inspire someone they know

6:51:566:51:59

to do a sport they love and in return they get one of these,

6:51:596:52:01

my favourite of all the Blue Peter badges, the Sport Badge.

6:52:016:52:04

-Do you guys have a sport that you love?

-Can I have one?

6:52:046:52:06

-Do you want one?

-I would love one.

6:52:066:52:08

If you encourage someone to do your favourite sport you might get one.

6:52:086:52:11

Everybody should play ice hockey. Cos that's the best sport ever.

6:52:116:52:15

OK, you have be under 15, but we'll just let that one slide.

6:52:156:52:18

We've had so many questions that have been sent in for you.

6:52:186:52:21

"If you had one wish each, what would it be?" From Glasswater Hen.

6:52:216:52:26

I think it would be cool to be able to play every musical instrument.

6:52:266:52:29

Like, really well.

6:52:296:52:31

Get to a top level, that would be great.

6:52:316:52:33

And Lilac-base Jellyfish says,

6:52:336:52:34

"If you could collaborate with one artist, who would it be and why?"

6:52:346:52:38

-Iggy wants to know.

-Iggy wants to know? Um...

6:52:386:52:41

I think Pharrell would be a really cool collaboration.

6:52:416:52:43

Just because he's got a lot of history, he's had a lot of hits.

6:52:436:52:46

And a lot of cool bands that he's worked with.

6:52:466:52:49

-And it would be fun.

-Would you all wear the same hat?

6:52:496:52:52

I would wear the hat.

6:52:526:52:53

I feel that would be something you would have to wear

6:52:536:52:55

-while working with Pharrell.

-All about the style.

6:52:556:52:58

Thank you so much for the questions there's plenty more online,

6:52:586:53:01

head there and look out for them.

6:53:016:53:02

I'm going to let you get ready and I'm going to take Iggy off

6:53:026:53:05

cos it's a bit loud for her.

6:53:056:53:06

Why don't you say what's coming on next week's show?

6:53:066:53:09

-Absolutely, take a look at this.

-Do you love tennis?

6:53:096:53:11

Well, next week Lindsey's serving up a treat from behind the scenes

6:53:116:53:14

-at Wimbledon.
