-Hello. On today's show, we don't know what's going to happen.

-No.

0:00:050:00:08

-No idea.

-Storm Doris has taken the nation by, well, storm.

0:00:080:00:11

-And nobody has made it to the studio.

-Which means that's gone.

0:00:110:00:15

That's gone. It's all gone.

0:00:150:00:16

-Yeah, welcome to the "livest" Blue Peter ever.

-Help.

0:00:160:00:20

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:00:350:00:36

Hello. Hi. Yes, that was today's show.

0:00:360:00:39

But now we don't need a script any more because it's all

0:00:390:00:41

brand-new to everyone. How are you doing?

0:00:410:00:43

It's a live Blue Peter,

0:00:430:00:44

and to celebrate the extravaganza that is World Book Day and

0:00:440:00:47

the Blue Peter Book Awards next week, we had two guests in

0:00:470:00:50

the studio today, but they couldn't make it because of Storm Doris.

0:00:500:00:53

But don't worry about it, because we have got them on the phone

0:00:530:00:55

and we're going to be speaking to them soon.

0:00:550:00:57

That is the legend that is Sir Chris Hoy and Francesca Simon.

0:00:570:00:59

-Stay tuned.

-And they're going to be talking about their books

0:00:590:01:02

Horrid Henry and Flying Fergus. So, Barney, that got me thinking.

0:01:020:01:05

-I thought I could be Laughing Lindsey.

-OK.

0:01:050:01:08

Which would make me Barfing Barney. That doesn't work, does it?

0:01:080:01:11

-Let's go...Bonkers Barney. That's a good one.

-We like that.

0:01:110:01:15

What would your alliterative name be? Hello, camera two.

0:01:150:01:17

Maybe you're called Colin. You'd be Crazy Colin, something like that.

0:01:170:01:20

Maybe you're called Hannah, you'd be Happy Hannah.

0:01:200:01:22

You get the idea. Let us know what your alliterative name would be.

0:01:220:01:25

Head to the Blue Peter website and leave your comment.

0:01:250:01:27

We'll try read out as many as we can later in the show.

0:01:270:01:29

Now, it's a real page turner of a show. I didn't write that bit.

0:01:290:01:32

But it sounded good, didn't it?

0:01:320:01:34

So we're going to be looking at the best storybook nominees,

0:01:340:01:37

very exciting.

0:01:370:01:38

Also, Shrove Tuesday is just around the corner,

0:01:380:01:40

so Radzi is going to be cooking us some pancakes with a difference.

0:01:400:01:43

I cannot wait for that. He's going to be showing his flipping skills.

0:01:430:01:46

Speaking of which, where is Radzi? Is he held up in the storm as well?

0:01:460:01:49

No, Radzi is not held up in Storm Doris.

0:01:490:01:52

He is doing a very exciting Blue Peter challenge pretty much

0:01:520:01:55

right now, and we can't tell you anything more about it.

0:01:550:01:58

It is so cool. I actually know what he's doing.

0:01:580:02:00

-Can I tell them a little bit?

-No, not one bit. No.

0:02:000:02:02

All the producers are going, "No! Don't say anything."

0:02:020:02:05

How about Spot Shelley? You know the game by now,

0:02:050:02:07

it's called Spot Shelley. It's very simple.

0:02:070:02:09

She's going to be hiding in the show somewhere today.

0:02:090:02:12

The first person to get in touch and tell us where she was hiding

0:02:120:02:15

-wins their very own weather balloon.

-No, you don't win a weather balloon.

0:02:150:02:18

-You win a shout out.

-Are you going now?

-Yeah, bye.

0:02:180:02:20

I'm about to have a phone call, aren't I?

0:02:200:02:22

Yes, so, we wanted to get the legend that is Sir Chris Hoy into the

0:02:220:02:25

studio to show you just what a legend he is.

0:02:250:02:27

He couldn't make it, but he is on the phone. Sir Chris, are you there?

0:02:270:02:30

-I am, yes, hello.

-So good to hear your voice, so good.

0:02:300:02:34

-You've had a bit of a nightmare today, haven't you?

-I have.

0:02:340:02:37

I've been trying to get from London up to Manchester and it's just

0:02:370:02:41

-been one thing after another, but...

-Even with your thighs.

0:02:410:02:44

-Nice to be on the phone.

-Thank you very much for being on the phone and

0:02:440:02:47

talking to us.

0:02:470:02:48

Obviously if I was to give you a short intro, it would be

0:02:480:02:50

impossible because you've done so many things over the years.

0:02:500:02:53

You are 11 times world champion,

0:02:530:02:55

you are six times Olympic champion, you've got seven Olympic medals.

0:02:550:02:57

Six of them are gold, one of them is silver.

0:02:570:02:59

You are the joint most successful cyclist of all time.

0:02:590:03:02

You are a Blue Peter gold badge holder,

0:03:020:03:04

you are a race car driver, and now you're an author.

0:03:040:03:06

Is there anything else that you can't do, Sir Chris?

0:03:060:03:09

-I can't cook.

-You can't cook?

0:03:090:03:11

Well, listen, Radz is going to show you how to make pancakes very soon.

0:03:110:03:15

Let's talk about you being a racing car driver first, because the

0:03:150:03:18

last time we saw you, you were on two wheels, and now you're in four.

0:03:180:03:22

-So, tell us how that's going.

-Yes, it's going really well.

0:03:220:03:25

I raced in the 24 Hours of Le Mans race last year

0:03:250:03:28

in France, and that essentially is a nonstop race for 24 hours.

0:03:280:03:32

So a real taste of endurance and you do it with two other team-mates.

0:03:320:03:36

And it's brilliant fun. Racing in cars, flat-out, 200mph.

0:03:360:03:40

Yeah, very exciting and a lot of fun.

0:03:400:03:43

We're watching a video here, it looks absolutely awesome.

0:03:430:03:46

Let's move on to you being an author, which is, I guess,

0:03:460:03:48

a little more sedate, you're sat at home and you're writing rather

0:03:480:03:51

than whizzing around a track at 200mph.

0:03:510:03:52

But you are talking about Flying Fergus,

0:03:520:03:54

who does fly quite quickly. Is he a little bit of you, Fergus?

0:03:540:03:58

There's a little bit of Fergus, yes. A little bit of me in Fergus.

0:03:580:04:01

He's basically a nine-year-old boy who...

0:04:010:04:03

He's a very ordinary boy, but he has an extraordinary imagination,

0:04:030:04:06

and he loves his bike.

0:04:060:04:08

And he gets a bike for his birthday, it's an old second-hand bike.

0:04:080:04:12

But it turns out the bike has magical powers.

0:04:120:04:15

So it's about all of his adventures and what happens when

0:04:150:04:18

-he rides his bike.

-Watching you on your bike,

0:04:180:04:20

everyone thought you had magical powers, do you know that?

0:04:200:04:22

But it was just the size of those legs.

0:04:220:04:24

So, how about the new stories?

0:04:240:04:25

Has he got any adventures he's about to go on that you can tell us about?

0:04:250:04:29

Yes. Well, there's a new book out this week, book number five,

0:04:290:04:31

and it's called The Winning Team.

0:04:310:04:33

And he has to team up with his arch nemesis, Wesley Wallace, to

0:04:330:04:36

compete at the National Championships.

0:04:360:04:38

So it's all about cooperation and working together as a team, but

0:04:380:04:42

also all the fun stuff as well when he goes to Nevermore,

0:04:420:04:45

the magical kingdom,

0:04:450:04:46

-and all the exciting things that happens to him there.

-Amazing.

0:04:460:04:49

Sir Chris, it was so good to speak to you, thank you for joining us.

0:04:490:04:52

-Thank you so much.

-All the best on your forward journey going home.

0:04:520:04:55

And you mentioned you're not a great cook.

0:04:550:04:57

Well, if you watch this later on,

0:04:570:04:58

you'll see that Radzi is an amazing cook. He really is.

0:04:580:05:00

And it also gives you a bit of a pick-me-up as well.

0:05:000:05:02

Who doesn't like pancakes? But who doesn't like pancakes with a twist?

0:05:020:05:06

Watch this.

0:05:060:05:07

'Hey, you.

0:05:090:05:11

'Are you tired of making the same, boring pancakes every year?

0:05:110:05:15

'Well, don't be downbeat, because it's time to transform that treat.'

0:05:150:05:20

Let's do this!

0:05:220:05:24

'That's right.

0:05:260:05:27

'I'm going to learn how to brighten up my pancakes,

0:05:270:05:30

'and who better to show me than the guys behind online cooking

0:05:300:05:34

'phenomenon SORTEDfood?'

0:05:340:05:36

Welcome to chocoholics not so anonymous.

0:05:360:05:39

'Barry, Jamie and Mike show off their kitchen creativity to

0:05:390:05:44

'over 1.5 million viewers every week.'

0:05:440:05:47

-HE LAUGHS

-Why would you do that?!

0:05:490:05:51

'And it's all under the watchful eye of professional chef Ben.'

0:05:510:05:54

-It's my favourite today.

-Ben, absolutely lovely to meet you.

0:05:540:05:58

-No, pleasure.

-So, how on earth is it possible to make pancakes exciting?

0:05:580:06:02

Well, I think the thing with pancakes is they're so simple.

0:06:020:06:04

Once you've got the classic batter made,

0:06:040:06:06

basically it's up to your creativity to come up with something awesome.

0:06:060:06:09

I like the sound of this a lot. Here we have the classic batter mix.

0:06:090:06:13

Very, very simple. You're going to make it. All the dry stuff in first.

0:06:130:06:16

-So we've got flour.

-Oh, no!

-Good start.

0:06:160:06:19

That's what I wanted to happen. 'We'll try that again.'

0:06:190:06:23

Flour. Fantastic. A little bit of salt.

0:06:230:06:26

We're going to slightly sweeten it with some sugar and baking powder.

0:06:260:06:30

Give that a whisk up. So, a couple of eggs. We can crack those in.

0:06:300:06:34

And then just pop the shell beside you.

0:06:340:06:36

And then if you add in the milk a little bit at a time,

0:06:360:06:39

basically it avoids lumps.

0:06:390:06:41

Last bit of milk.

0:06:410:06:43

And then a really handy top tip.

0:06:430:06:44

Rather than having to oil or butter your pan every time you cook

0:06:440:06:47

a pancake, take some melted butter and add it into your mix.

0:06:470:06:51

'That, my friends, is what we call in the business a game changer.'

0:06:510:06:56

-OK, I think we're done.

-Perfect.

0:06:560:06:57

Now, that looks completely smooth and lump free.

0:06:570:07:01

It still is just basic batter. So how can it be creative?

0:07:010:07:04

You can change up the cooking method.

0:07:040:07:06

You can put it into different shapes.

0:07:060:07:07

You can serve it with whatever you want.

0:07:070:07:09

Because it is so simple,

0:07:090:07:11

-it really is just like a canvas for so many new ideas.

-Amazing.

0:07:110:07:15

-But here are three that I made earlier...

-Fantastic.

0:07:150:07:19

-..so that we can have a pancake batter.

-'Oh, yes.

0:07:190:07:23

'I'm taking on the rest of the team, Barry, Jamie and Mike,

0:07:230:07:27

'to see who can make the most imaginative pancakes possible.'

0:07:270:07:31

-Gents, are we up for it?

-Let's do this.

-Come on.

0:07:310:07:35

'Jamie and I are working on our own.

0:07:370:07:39

-'And Barry and Mike are teaming up as a duo.'

-Ready?

-Let's do this.

0:07:390:07:43

-'Let battle commence.'

-Now, I like pancakes.

0:07:430:07:47

But I also really like pizza. So I'm going to make pancake pizzas.

0:07:470:07:51

We are making pancakes and cupcakes.

0:07:510:07:54

-Some could call them pancake cupcake bites.

-But most don't.

0:07:540:07:59

Everybody loves sweet stuff. Well, I do anyway because of my sweet tooth.

0:07:590:08:02

So I'm going to combine all of that in lollipop pancake things.

0:08:020:08:07

-Things?

-Things.

-That's a great description.

0:08:070:08:10

Now the pancake is into the pan,

0:08:130:08:14

I can start chopping up my pepperoni and my sun-dried tomatoes and

0:08:140:08:18

grate in some cheese and sprinkle it on top when the underside is cooked.

0:08:180:08:21

Oh, it looks a little bit overdone, that, mate.

0:08:210:08:23

-What? I've just poured it in.

-Yeah, I knew that.

0:08:230:08:27

So, first thing we've got to do is zest

0:08:270:08:29

a lemon into our premade batter.

0:08:290:08:32

While you do that, Baz,

0:08:320:08:33

I'm going to line a muffin tin with some butter.

0:08:330:08:36

Now, I have washed my hands.

0:08:360:08:38

Now, we're going to kick off with the cocoa powder,

0:08:380:08:40

and I'm going to use half of my batter, like so.

0:08:400:08:44

I'm going for the sweet, cos I think...

0:08:440:08:46

we've had lunch, we had dinner, oh, I need a nice little desert.

0:08:460:08:50

Hello, chocolate swirl pancake...things.

0:08:500:08:53

'Time might be tight, but we're still having fun.

0:08:530:08:56

'Triple blueberry challenge, anyone?'

0:08:560:08:58

Yes!

0:08:580:09:00

Yeah!

0:09:000:09:01

Ohhh, yeah!

0:09:010:09:04

No spillage, that is impressive.

0:09:040:09:06

OK, here we go.

0:09:060:09:07

I need to do a swirl, a perfect swirl.

0:09:070:09:09

How big are these lollipops?

0:09:090:09:10

Uh, we will find out.

0:09:100:09:13

'Hey-hey, looking good.

0:09:130:09:15

'But Jamie isn't messing around with his pizza creations.'

0:09:150:09:19

Now, obviously, the best thing about a pizza is,

0:09:200:09:23

you can put whatever toppings you want.

0:09:230:09:25

As long as everything you put on is cooked, it's going to be great.

0:09:250:09:28

'And Barry and Mike are getting serious with their cupcakes.'

0:09:280:09:32

Now, this is the good bit.

0:09:320:09:33

We're going to be putting blueberries

0:09:330:09:35

and white chocolate into the batter.

0:09:350:09:38

Be generous.

0:09:380:09:39

I think yours is burning.

0:09:390:09:41

Hello. I mean...

0:09:420:09:45

Yes! That has actually worked.

0:09:450:09:48

Oh, mate, that looks amazing.

0:09:480:09:50

These go into an oven at 220 for about 13 to 15 minutes.

0:09:500:09:55

-OTHERS GIGGLE

-Excuse me, excuse me... Stop it!

0:09:550:09:57

No messing around in the kitchen.

0:09:570:09:58

THAT is a pancake pizza.

0:10:000:10:02

'Time to add our final touches.

0:10:020:10:05

'But before our creations get judged,

0:10:050:10:08

'there's just one thing left to do.'

0:10:080:10:10

It's the Blue Peter badge.

0:10:100:10:11

OTHERS: Flip it! Flip it! Flip it!

0:10:110:10:13

Three, two, one...

0:10:150:10:16

-You triple flipped it.

-Well, that didn't go to plan.

0:10:210:10:24

'So then, who has produced pancake perfection?

0:10:260:10:29

'Jamie, with his pizza cake?

0:10:290:10:32

'Barry and Mike, with their pancake/cupcake bites?

0:10:320:10:36

'Or me and my pancake lollipop swirly...things?

0:10:360:10:41

'Yeah, still working on a name.'

0:10:410:10:42

So, for a winner...

0:10:420:10:44

I love the fact that this is completely out of the box.

0:10:440:10:47

However, this is super-arty and creative. But, for me...

0:10:470:10:50

-..this is my winner!

-Well done!

0:10:520:10:54

SO good.

0:10:540:10:56

You know what, last cake, always, sorry, I've just got to say...

0:10:560:10:58

Ah, there's one rule that we do have here at SORTED,

0:10:580:11:01

-and that's last one in the kitchen does the washing up.

-See you, mate.

0:11:010:11:04

Go, go, go, go!

0:11:040:11:05

That's what Radzi is like

0:11:060:11:07

-when we go for lunch, isn't it?

-It really is.

0:11:070:11:09

We always leave the restaurant

0:11:090:11:11

-and he's still left eating.

-He never washes up, either.

0:11:110:11:13

How good were his lollipop pancakes though?

0:11:130:11:15

I hope he saved me one.

0:11:150:11:16

Speaking of which, if you have a go at any of those pancake recipes...

0:11:160:11:18

Send them to us - the pancakes, not the pictures.

0:11:180:11:21

Yes, we're calling them pancake selfies - "pelfies".

0:11:210:11:24

-We might try and get that trending. No?

-That's not going to happen.

0:11:240:11:27

OK, fine. Have a look at this week's Big Badge Wall,

0:11:270:11:29

-where your pelfies could end up.

-(Shut up.)

0:11:290:11:31

-LAUGHING:

-It's covered in all your glorious...

0:11:310:11:33

I don't think that's going to take off.

0:11:330:11:34

Something I'd like to DRAW your attention to is this.

0:11:340:11:37

It's from Bryony from Cheshire.

0:11:370:11:39

She was inspired by me going caving for cheese.

0:11:390:11:42

Yes, that is a thing that happened.

0:11:420:11:44

So here I am in my beautiful cave,

0:11:440:11:46

and you can see I have a little bag of cheese.

0:11:460:11:47

I think it's meant to be on my back,

0:11:470:11:49

but it's kind of slipped down to my botty.

0:11:490:11:51

-Everyone should carry cheese on their bot-bot.

-Yes, thank you.

0:11:510:11:53

Have a look at this, cheese is definitely trending.

0:11:530:11:55

Thomas says, "For the love of cheese!",

0:11:550:11:57

with a big headline there,

0:11:570:11:58

and he's got Lindsey climbing up a massive block of cheese.

0:11:580:12:01

And it says here, "I can name one thing cheesier than this,

0:12:010:12:03

"and that's Barney's jokes." Well, just for you.

0:12:030:12:05

-How did Mr Cheese paint his wife?

-How?

-He Double Glossed 'Er.

0:12:050:12:09

LAUGHTER

0:12:090:12:11

He saved that one.

0:12:110:12:13

And we have got this one here, this is Leah's,

0:12:130:12:16

she's drawn the Lego Radzi Movie, inspired by Lego Batman.

0:12:160:12:19

-And the writing looks a bit like cheese.

-It does.

0:12:190:12:21

Thank you so much for getting in touch.

0:12:210:12:22

Shall we text your cheese joke to Radz?

0:12:220:12:24

He'll like that, we'll send it to him later.

0:12:240:12:26

Keep the post coming to the usual address, as you can see right there.

0:12:260:12:29

We love receiving all of your fab letters and pictures.

0:12:290:12:32

Now, last week we revealed the nominees

0:12:320:12:34

for the Best Book With Facts,

0:12:340:12:35

and now it's time to see what you little bookworms think

0:12:350:12:38

of the Best Story nominees.

0:12:380:12:40

All over the country, the Blue Peter Book Awards judges have been

0:12:440:12:47

busy reading the three nominees for Best Story.

0:12:470:12:49

From little rabbits to magical myths and even time travel,

0:12:510:12:54

they have read it all, and here is what they thought.

0:12:540:12:58

First up - Time Travelling with a Hamster, by Ross Welford.

0:12:580:13:01

Al receives a mission to travel back to 1984 in a time machine

0:13:030:13:07

to save his father's life, and he's

0:13:070:13:09

taking his hamster with him.

0:13:090:13:11

I would describe Time Travelling with a Hamster as funny,

0:13:110:13:15

exciting and emotional.

0:13:150:13:17

It's fun to read about time-travelling,

0:13:170:13:19

because it tells you what can happen in the future

0:13:190:13:22

and what happened in the past in more detail

0:13:220:13:24

than just a history book.

0:13:240:13:25

I think some bits could have been cut out to make it a bit better.

0:13:250:13:30

Very imaginative and clever.

0:13:300:13:33

I felt at some bits you could really feel what the character was feeling.

0:13:330:13:37

I recommend it to people who like adventures and people

0:13:370:13:41

who like hamsters as well.

0:13:410:13:44

Next up is Lost Tales

0:13:440:13:46

by Adam and Lisa Murphy.

0:13:460:13:48

A collection of the most magical myths and legends

0:13:480:13:51

you've NEVER heard of that will take your breath away.

0:13:510:13:53

Stories that are centuries old have been brought back to life

0:13:530:13:56

through the magic of comic storytelling.

0:13:560:13:58

I would describe it as adventurous, sad, thrilling and mysterious.

0:14:000:14:08

I would recommend Lost Tales to people who are into

0:14:080:14:12

comic strips and maybe myths and legends.

0:14:120:14:15

The pictures in Lost Tales are detailed and help tell the story.

0:14:150:14:18

The comic-strip style is hilarious.

0:14:180:14:21

I like the stories, because every story has a moral in them.

0:14:210:14:26

I think it should win because it's very colourful

0:14:260:14:29

and it has got stories from all over the world.

0:14:290:14:34

And finally, Podkin One-Ear, by Kieran Larwood,

0:14:340:14:37

and illustrated by David Wyatt.

0:14:370:14:39

A fantastic tale of how one little lost rabbit overcame

0:14:400:14:44

the cruellest enemy to become the greatest warrior

0:14:440:14:46

his land has ever known.

0:14:460:14:48

My favourite book is Podkin One-Ear,

0:14:480:14:50

because I like a good adventure in a story.

0:14:500:14:53

It has a very nice cover and it draws you in

0:14:530:14:56

from the very first word.

0:14:560:14:57

It was really interesting, and it was different,

0:14:570:15:00

because instead of the main characters being humans,

0:15:000:15:03

they were rabbits.

0:15:030:15:04

I think Podkin One-Ear should win, because it's magical,

0:15:040:15:07

it's got lots of different creatures,

0:15:070:15:10

and it's very different to all the other books.

0:15:100:15:13

It made me feel intrigued to find out what was going to happen next.

0:15:130:15:18

It's very inspirational and it shows you what you can do

0:15:180:15:21

if you put your mind to it.

0:15:210:15:22

So, three great stories,

0:15:220:15:24

but only one can

0:15:240:15:25

live happily ever after

0:15:250:15:26

with a Blue Peter Book Award.

0:15:260:15:28

Who will win? Find out next week.

0:15:280:15:31

Some amazing books there.

0:15:320:15:34

Now, someone who is a legend when it comes to books - and Blue Peter,

0:15:340:15:37

because she's got her very own gold badge - and she's going to be

0:15:370:15:40

on the show right now, kind of, it's Horrid Henry author Francesca Simon!

0:15:400:15:43

CHEERING

0:15:430:15:45

Hi, Lindsey, hi, everyone!

0:15:450:15:46

Francesca, I am kind of hugging the TV screen,

0:15:460:15:49

because you are half here, but thanks to Storm Doris,

0:15:490:15:52

you couldn't quite get all the way here,

0:15:520:15:54

so we've got you from your home, speaking to us now.

0:15:540:15:56

Now, you have written 96 Horrid Henry books,

0:15:560:16:00

which is ridiculous, quite frankly.

0:16:000:16:02

Can I ask you which your favourite one is,

0:16:020:16:04

or is that like choosing between children?

0:16:040:16:06

I'm shameless, I'm going to choose...

0:16:060:16:08

LINDSEY GASPS

0:16:080:16:09

..and I choose Horrid Henry Gets Rich Quick, which is when

0:16:090:16:12

Horrid Henry sells Perfect Peter as a slave to Moody Margaret.

0:16:120:16:16

And what are you up to at the moment, Francesca,

0:16:160:16:18

are you writing any books?

0:16:180:16:20

Can we get a bit of a Blue Peter exclusive?

0:16:200:16:22

You can get TWO Blue Peter exclusives.

0:16:220:16:24

I'm writing a book about some very wicked Vikings,

0:16:240:16:28

called Hack and Whack,

0:16:280:16:29

and I'm also writing an opera for the Royal Opera House

0:16:290:16:34

for teens plus.

0:16:340:16:35

All sounds amazing. If you need anyone in your opera, I'm available.

0:16:350:16:38

I look forward to hearing you sing.

0:16:380:16:41

I can't really sing. That was a joke, do not cast me.

0:16:410:16:44

Now, it's nearly the Blue Peter Book Awards, and World Book Day,

0:16:440:16:47

of course, so what will you be doing to get involved?

0:16:470:16:50

Well, World Book Day is all about encouraging kids to read for fun,

0:16:500:16:54

and everyone in the UK will be given a £1 book token

0:16:540:16:59

so they can buy... Sorry, "buy",

0:16:590:17:01

they can get a fantastic book for free of their own,

0:17:010:17:03

including one of mine!

0:17:030:17:07

-Yay, that's what we like to see!

-Yay!

0:17:070:17:09

I wallpapered the house with this.

0:17:090:17:12

I bet, I've done the same with all of your books.

0:17:120:17:15

So people can go and get a book,

0:17:150:17:17

and there's some amazing authors in there, there's David Walliams,

0:17:170:17:20

Dame Jacqueline Wilson - there's a bit of everyone, isn't there?

0:17:200:17:23

It's a fantastic line-up and I am so thrilled to be

0:17:230:17:27

-one of the ten authors.

-Well, listen,

0:17:270:17:29

thank you so much for being on Blue Peter.

0:17:290:17:31

Next time you're on, we will actually have you here in the studio

0:17:310:17:33

and not on a television screen that I am hugging.

0:17:330:17:36

But, Francesca Simon, everyone, isn't she brilliant?

0:17:360:17:38

CHEERING

0:17:380:17:40

Thank you so much.

0:17:400:17:42

And you can just see her little dog Louis there,

0:17:420:17:44

he was just saying hello.

0:17:440:17:45

-This is Louis, chewing away.

-Hello, Louis!

0:17:450:17:47

Well, luckily, Francesca, you're not here,

0:17:470:17:50

but some of your amazing super-fans are here to play our super-fan game.

0:17:500:17:54

Let's walk this way, it's the super-fans!

0:17:540:17:56

WHOOPING AND APPLAUSE

0:17:560:17:58

Hello, super-fans, welcome to the show.

0:17:580:18:00

Before we go any further, let's introduce you.

0:18:000:18:02

We've got Josh and Hannah over this side,

0:18:020:18:04

-and you are brother and sister, aren't you?

-LAUGHING:

-Yeah!

-Yeah.

0:18:040:18:07

Yeah! Good, I like that - "Yeah!"

0:18:070:18:09

And we've got more brothers and sisters over here,

0:18:090:18:11

-we've got lovely Jess and Fin. Hello!

-Hi.

-Welcome, everybody.

0:18:110:18:14

Now, we're going to play a super-fan game.

0:18:140:18:15

We're going to be testing your Horrid Henry knowledge.

0:18:150:18:18

So, what is your fave book ever, Josh, Horrid Henry one?

0:18:180:18:22

-Henry Gets Rich Quick.

-Like that one. What about you, Hannah?

0:18:220:18:25

Erm, the same, because he sells his brother.

0:18:250:18:27

LINDSEY LAUGHS

0:18:270:18:29

You looked very cheeky when you said that,

0:18:290:18:31

-do you want to sell your brother?

-No.

0:18:310:18:32

Good, that was the right answer on television.

0:18:320:18:34

Jess, what's your favourite Horrid Henry?

0:18:340:18:37

Erm, I like Horrid Henry Has Nits,

0:18:370:18:41

because Horrid Henry always has nits and Peter never has nits.

0:18:410:18:47

And then he puts them on his tissue and pours them over Peter's hair.

0:18:470:18:50

Ugh, that is horrid, I can see why he is called Horrid Henry.

0:18:500:18:53

What about you, Fin, fave book?

0:18:530:18:55

I like the one where Henry goes camping.

0:18:550:18:57

I know, because you love going camping as well, don't you?

0:18:570:19:00

So, let's play our game.

0:19:000:19:01

I'm going to give you the first name of a Horrid Henry character,

0:19:010:19:04

and you've got to finish it. I love how you are already on the buzzers.

0:19:040:19:07

You guys are ready to go.

0:19:070:19:09

So, for example, if I say "Horrid", you will say...

0:19:090:19:11

ALL: Henry!

0:19:110:19:12

Exactly. Guys, audience, join in as well, please.

0:19:120:19:15

OK, so let's play the Super-Fan Name Game.

0:19:150:19:18

GAME SHOW JINGLE

0:19:180:19:20

I love that music. OK, the first one is... Minute on the clock.

0:19:200:19:23

BELL RINGS

0:19:230:19:24

-Oh, do you know it?

-Moody Margaret!

0:19:240:19:27

Yes, that is actually...

0:19:270:19:28

I feel like you might have seen my card there,

0:19:280:19:29

so we'll do the next one.

0:19:290:19:31

So we've got Perfect...

0:19:310:19:32

-Peter!

-Peter!

-LAUGHING:

-Yes...

0:19:320:19:35

The next one is Stuck-Up...

0:19:350:19:37

ALL: Steve!

0:19:370:19:38

I think you just got it, Red Team, well done.

0:19:380:19:41

The next one is Prissy...

0:19:410:19:42

-BUZZER

-Polly!

-Polly!

0:19:420:19:44

Wow, you guys are super-fans, I can't handle it!

0:19:440:19:46

Correct. The next one is Gorgeous...

0:19:460:19:48

-Gurinder!

-BUZZER

0:19:480:19:50

Well done, good job. You did press it.

0:19:500:19:52

The next one is Pimply...

0:19:520:19:53

-BUZZER

-Paul!

0:19:530:19:55

Oh, Jess! The next one is Vomiting...

0:19:550:19:57

-Vera!

-Vera!

-BUZZER

0:19:570:19:59

Correct. The next one is Clever...

0:19:590:20:02

-BUZZER

-Claire!

-Claire!

0:20:020:20:04

You guys are on a roll here. The next one is Rude...

0:20:040:20:09

-BUZZER

-Ralph!

0:20:090:20:10

-HANNAH:

-Ralph!

0:20:100:20:11

WOMAN OFF-SCREEN: Aww...

0:20:110:20:13

Correct! Well done, Greens. The next one is...

0:20:130:20:15

Just read it out.

0:20:150:20:17

That's a hard word. Aerobic...

0:20:170:20:19

-KLAXON BLARES

-Aerobic Al!

0:20:190:20:20

Yes, Aerobic Al, correct.

0:20:200:20:22

-LAUGHING:

-So at the end of that game, the scores are

0:20:220:20:24

seven to the Green Team, two to the Reds.

0:20:240:20:27

Well done to our super-fans.

0:20:270:20:29

Good job. And if you want even more... Good job.

0:20:290:20:32

..from Francesca Simon - I suppose you do -

0:20:320:20:33

or you've got any burning Horrid Henry questions, fear not,

0:20:330:20:37

she's going to be on the fan club later.

0:20:370:20:39

Well done, team. Barney...

0:20:390:20:40

Hands down one of my favourite games on Blue Peter EVER.

0:20:400:20:42

Hannah should totally be a new Blue Peter presenter, by the way.

0:20:420:20:46

Right, check out the Red Nose Day totaliser.

0:20:460:20:47

We've been filling it with your jokes over the past few weeks.

0:20:470:20:50

We can now announce our brand-new total. Let's get the sound effects.

0:20:500:20:53

DRUM ROLL Let's get the drum roll,

0:20:530:20:54

and let's get the specials -

0:20:540:20:56

3,198! LINDSEY SCREAMS

0:20:560:20:58

-Whoa!

-Wow! Stop laughing.

0:20:580:21:01

That was close.

0:21:010:21:02

They did that right at our faces to have a little joke.

0:21:020:21:05

So thank you very much for getting in touch,

0:21:050:21:07

-we've got to update that total, haven't we, Linds?

-Yeah, we do.

0:21:070:21:09

So the new total, we're going to put it up next week to 5,000.

0:21:090:21:13

-The question is, do you think we can do it?

-Of course we can.

0:21:130:21:16

-Have I got glitter everywhere in my hair?

-You're OK.

0:21:160:21:18

Can we collect 5,000 funny jokes?

0:21:180:21:20

There are two ways you can get involved. Barney...

0:21:200:21:23

This is way number one.

0:21:230:21:25

You can enter via the Comedy Classroom.

0:21:250:21:27

If you'd like to write original jokes - that means

0:21:270:21:29

you make them up - they could be judged by Miranda Hart

0:21:290:21:31

and Richard Curtis, two legends of comedy,

0:21:310:21:33

and your joke could be read out on the Red Nose Day special in March.

0:21:330:21:35

So get in touch, please. You have got until

0:21:350:21:37

Tuesday, 28th February to get in touch,

0:21:370:21:39

which isn't far away. You know you want to.

0:21:390:21:41

OK, over to me for way number two.

0:21:410:21:43

You can fill out one of these lovely little forms for the website.

0:21:430:21:47

All you have to do is download one of these templates,

0:21:470:21:49

fill it in with all of your favourite jokes,

0:21:490:21:52

all three of them, next to our lovely faces.

0:21:520:21:54

And you can decorate it, get really creative.

0:21:540:21:56

Someone who has done just that is Alfie, and his joke was hilarious.

0:21:560:21:59

Alfie, over to you, my friend.

0:21:590:22:01

Why did Adele cross the road?

0:22:010:22:03

-We don't know. BOTH:

-Why did Adele cross the road?

0:22:030:22:06

To sing...

0:22:060:22:08

# Hello from the other side... #

0:22:080:22:11

Yeah, baby! Oh, and you get a dab at the end.

0:22:110:22:14

Dab, dabbing Adele.

0:22:140:22:16

What does Merlyn think?

0:22:160:22:17

Let's have a listen to see what her joke is like.

0:22:170:22:19

What do you call a fake noodle?

0:22:190:22:22

An im-pasta.

0:22:220:22:24

-Really good.

-I like that one.

0:22:240:22:26

That was a very Radzi joke, we like it.

0:22:260:22:28

I could listen to these all day. I think we've got one from Polly.

0:22:280:22:32

Why was the chef so relaxed?

0:22:320:22:34

Because he had plenty of thyme on his hands.

0:22:360:22:39

Oh, plenty of thyme, T-H-Y-M-E, not T-I-ME.

0:22:390:22:42

-It's a cooking thing.

-It's a herb-ey joke.

0:22:420:22:44

-It's very clever.

-Like a herb joke.

0:22:440:22:45

Love the badges as well, well done on getting those, you absolute star.

0:22:450:22:48

-Think we've gone a bit wild today.

-Well, there's no script today.

0:22:480:22:51

Let us know what you're doing to fundraise

0:22:510:22:53

for this year's Red Nose Day.

0:22:530:22:54

Remember, you have got until

0:22:540:22:56

Wednesday, 22nd March to get your jokes to us,

0:22:560:22:59

and then the next day is going to be our Red Nose Day spectacular.

0:22:590:23:02

-Stop messing around.

-Go on.

-Let's walk this way. No, let's not.

0:23:020:23:05

No, let's do Hacker's Nosey Adventure first.

0:23:050:23:07

Hacker's Nosey Adventure is a game online, it's a brilliant game.

0:23:070:23:09

Thousands of you have played it, it says here.

0:23:090:23:12

Go and check it out, impress your friends,

0:23:120:23:14

have some fun etc, thank you.

0:23:140:23:16

LINDSEY LAUGHS

0:23:160:23:17

-Your bit.

-Oh, see, this is why we need a script.

0:23:170:23:20

Thomas, help me out here, dude!

0:23:200:23:22

How do Nasa organise parties? They plan-et.

0:23:230:23:26

See, it's a plan-et, like a planet...

0:23:260:23:28

At least Thomas is holding the show together.

0:23:280:23:30

-Thank you, Thomas.

-Now we can go this way.

-Shall we walk this way?

0:23:300:23:33

-All right.

-Don't slip... At the start of the show we asked...

0:23:330:23:36

BUMP Oh, hello, watch your step.

0:23:360:23:38

..what your alliterative names would be.

0:23:380:23:41

We've had loads sent in.

0:23:410:23:42

The first one is from Tweety Pie Pink - great name.

0:23:420:23:45

It says, "Mine would be Loud Lily.

0:23:450:23:46

"I would call myself that name cos I shout a lot." Good.

0:23:460:23:51

Dog Runner Cool Dude - "I'd be Dramatic Dan,

0:23:510:23:54

"because I enjoy doing drama."

0:23:540:23:56

-Nice.

-Lovely.

-Stringy Pineapple Pen - such a good name! -

0:23:560:23:59

says, "Lucky Lucy,

0:23:590:24:01

"because I got 100% in my maths test and I am top of the class."

0:24:010:24:05

-I bet you are!

-What are the rules with alliteration?

0:24:050:24:07

Can you have two words, or can you have, like, five words if you want?

0:24:070:24:10

-Why?

-Because Shining Star here has got "Elegant, Enthusiastic Eliza".

0:24:100:24:13

-Ooh, that is lovely.

-Three Es.

0:24:130:24:15

Thank you so much for getting in touch.

0:24:150:24:17

As well as that, we have been playing Spot Shelley,

0:24:170:24:19

it's our fave game, we play it every week.

0:24:190:24:21

And the person to get it this week was Gold Jokey Primrose.

0:24:210:24:24

Well done to you, round of applause.

0:24:240:24:25

There she was, hiding in my little cheese cave.

0:24:250:24:28

Congratulations, you have won a lifetime's supply of cheese

0:24:280:24:31

-and a sports car.

-That's not true.

-OK.

0:24:310:24:32

-That's all we've got time for on today's show.

-Isn't it?

0:24:320:24:34

-DOORBELL RINGS

-Oh, hello.

0:24:340:24:36

Did you know that was going to happen?

0:24:360:24:37

Were you expecting someone, Barney(?)

0:24:370:24:39

There's a gap there, that's a clue, isn't it?

0:24:390:24:41

This is the Pop Star Pop-In.

0:24:410:24:42

I want to say, can you all give a huge round of applause to one of

0:24:420:24:45

-my favourite stars at the moment? It's Daisy Clark.

-Yay!

0:24:450:24:47

CHEERING

0:24:470:24:49

-Daisy, come and take a seat.

-Come on in.

0:24:490:24:52

Daisy, I first saw you years ago online,

0:24:520:24:53

playing your guitar and singing.

0:24:530:24:55

-You have got a beautiful voice.

-Oh, thank you.

0:24:550:24:57

You are amazing playing the guitar.

0:24:570:24:58

And since then, it's gone from strength to strength, hasn't it?

0:24:580:25:01

Yeah, I uploaded a cover of Hopelessly Devoted To You

0:25:010:25:03

from Grease, everyone was sharing it

0:25:030:25:05

-and it went viral and now has ten million views.

-Which is ridiculous.

0:25:050:25:08

When you said everyone was sharing it,

0:25:080:25:09

I didn't realise you meant actually everyone.

0:25:090:25:11

Yes, ten million, really, really popular, isn't it?

0:25:110:25:14

You started just in your bedroom playing

0:25:140:25:15

a couple of tracks and here you are, live on telly.

0:25:150:25:17

Yeah, I just videoed myself playing the guitar and now it's gone crazy.

0:25:170:25:20

That's what it's all about.

0:25:200:25:21

We've actually done a little bit of an interview you can

0:25:210:25:24

see online, which is very funny - very funny - there's also

0:25:240:25:27

a performance, a full performance of the song you're about to hear.

0:25:270:25:29

-Would you do a little teaser for us?

-Yes, of course.

-Amazing.

0:25:290:25:32

There's your microphone, take your position,

0:25:320:25:34

and we can tell you what's happening on next week's show.

0:25:340:25:36

Whilst Daisy gets ready, we should say, don't miss next week,

0:25:360:25:39

because it's our World Book Day spectacular.

0:25:390:25:41

We're very excited to celebrate, and we are going to be dressing up.

0:25:410:25:44

-You mean me, don't you?

-Well, I am too, but yours is funnier.

0:25:440:25:47

Yeah, you get to decide what I dress up as. Take a look at your options.

0:25:470:25:50

I'm either going to be Dennis, the Boy in the Dress,

0:25:500:25:52

Fungus the Bogeyman or Where's Wally.

0:25:520:25:55

You can vote for this.

0:25:550:25:56

This closes during the fan club hour on Tuesday.

0:25:560:25:58

Make sure you get online and vote for who you want me

0:25:580:26:01

to dress up as a next week's show. I promise I will do it.

0:26:010:26:04

As well as that, we're going to have rapper Doc Brown in the house.

0:26:040:26:07

-Such a ledge.

-In the BP studio,

0:26:070:26:08

announcing the winners of the Blue Peter Book Awards 2017.

0:26:080:26:12

-Also, we're going to have a massive puppet elephant.

-Are you sure?

0:26:120:26:15

It's absolutely true. Make sure you're watching.

0:26:150:26:17

Now though, playing us out with her beautiful, melted chocolate voice...

0:26:170:26:21

It's Daisy Clark. We'll see you next week.

0:26:210:26:24

# Guess mine was not the first heart broken

0:26:240:26:30

# My eyes not the first to cry

0:26:320:26:37

# I'm not the first to know

0:26:380:26:42

# There's just no getting over you

0:26:420:26:46

# I know I'm just a fool who's willing

0:26:520:26:57

# To sit around and wait for you

0:26:590:27:05

# But, baby, can't you see

0:27:050:27:08

# There's nothing else for me to do?

0:27:080:27:13

# I'm hopelessly devoted to you

0:27:160:27:21

# But now there's nowhere to hide

0:27:240:27:29

# Since you pushed my love aside

0:27:290:27:33

# I'm out of my head

0:27:330:27:36

# Hopelessly devoted to you

0:27:360:27:40

# Hopelessly devoted to you. #

0:27:430:27:48

Absolutely beautiful.

0:27:530:27:55

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:27:550:27:56

Well done, Daisy.

0:27:560:27:58
