'Welcome to Copycats!
'Today's copycats are Shaughn's team from Liverpool
'and Mason's team from Essex.'
'And here are your hosts, Sam and Mark.'
Hello. Welcome to Copycats where, unlike school,
we actively encourage copying the work of the person next to you.
Too right we do!
Today's show is going to showcase some fabulous drawing,
miming and music because both teams want to get their mitts on this.
It's the Copycats trophy!
-Shall we meet the teams?
-Let's do it.
-Shaughn, how are you?
-Excellent, nice to see you. So, you're team captain.
Excellent. Would you like to introduce the team for us, please?
Well, of course, I'm Shaughn.
Here's my friend Eleanor, my mum, Angela,
my auntie, Bev, my mum's friend, Sophie, and my other friend, Ciaran.
Excellent. It is lovely to have you here.
-Are you all excited for this, guys?
Awesome! Anybody a little bit nervous?
Ciaran, Auntie Bev, you're nervous. Don't be nervous!
Honestly, it's fine!
It's just a little bit of fun, it really is.
Now, have you guys been practising at all?
-A little bit.
-A little bit, OK. What have you been practising?
Your drawing, your miming, your kazoo playing?
My kazooing. I started practising that today.
Oh, did you really? Are you any good on it?
Is anybody in your team good on the kazoo?
-Eleanor, you were all right.
-OK, excellent work.
The best of luck for today. It's going to be great.
Give it up for Shaughn's team, everyone.
CHEERING AND APPLAUSE
Over here we've got Mason's team.
Mason, team captain, how are you doing, mate?
-I'm good, you?
-Yes, very well thank you.
OK, would you like to introduce the rest of the team?
This is my friend, Sophie.
This is Sophie's dad, Richard.
This is my dad, Mark.
This is Flick's dad, Adrian, and this is Flick.
So, is anybody here worried about any of the rounds in particular?
-The kazoo, I guess.
-The kazoo, everybody says that.
The music round. They all go, "I don't like it, I don't like it!"
Any other, would you say, weak links in the side, Mason?
Mm, well, my dad!
Oh, poor Mark!
He just turned and went, "Yeah, my dad, my dad."
Now, you will be fantastic, guys, we'll have a lot of fun.
Give it up for Mason's team, everyone, brilliant.
CHEERING AND APPLAUSE
Our teams certainly look ready to go.
They do indeed. Then we had a highly official coin toss earlier,
which told us that Shaughn's team are playing first.
So, let's play Copycats.
Well, I can't wait to see Shaughn's team display their artistic talents
with the aptly-named Quick On The Draw.
-Still feeling nervous?
-Don't be nervous! Are you any good at drawing?
OK, that's good. You're going to pick one of these three cards.
You'll then have ten seconds to draw whatever is on that card to
the player next to you and that player will pass it down the line
to the bottom.
Now, there are 50 points to be won in this round,
but you will lose ten points
going back down the line for every incorrect answer.
That's not going to happen, though.
-We're going to get the full 50, aren't we?
Yeah, we are! Copycats, are you ready?
-Awesome! Let's close the doors.
Right, Ciaran, I've got three cards -
-green, pink or blue?
-Can I have pink, please?
Of course you can, mate. Take a look.
-Reckon you can draw that?
-Good. You can.
I've got faith in you. Best of luck.
You've got ten seconds. Ready, steady, draw.
OK, Angela, your turn.
Eleanor, your turn.
Sophie, your turn.
Shaughn, go for it.
Time is up. Stop drawing.
OK, not bad at all, not bad at all.
Nice work, Ciaran!
Awesome! I'm not going to lie, I did worry a little bit.
Angela, what did you think it was?
Well, I didn't know, I really didn't know.
That looks like a tadpole.
Shaughn, did you think it was a drum?
I'm not too sure, I thought it was two people around a cake!
Oh, really? Yes, I can see that!
Well, thankfully you've got Auntie Bev on the end
who smashed it out of the park.
50 points in the first round!
Best of luck, Mark. Great name, by the way!
Pick a card. We've got blue or green, which would you like?
-I'll go for blue.
-OK, have a look at that.
-Do you think you can draw that?
-I'll give it my best shot.
That's all I ask of you.
Best of luck. Ready, steady, draw.
Off you go.
Sophie, your turn.
Go on, Richard, your turn.
Adrian, your turn.
OK. Stop drawing.
I can't argue with that.
That's good copying down the line. For a maximum 50 points,
team captain Mason, what's the answer?
-Is it a snail?
That was brilliant.
That is exactly the way you should play Quick On The Draw.
Congratulations and well done to Mark. Great name.
50 points to Mason's team!
So, after Quick On The Draw, are Shaughn's team going to BEAT
-the opposition? You know, like a drum - beat.
-I get it.
-Not beating an egg, beating a drum.
-I get it.
Or, can Mason's team SLITHER into the lead?
-You know, cos snails slither.
-I've got it.
Let's look at the scores. Mr D, what could they be?
'It's close, Mark. After Quick On The Draw,
'Shaughn's team have 50 points and Mason's team also have 50 points.'
That's, like, the most.
OK, time for our teams to step up and face the most difficult game
in the whole studio.
It's the Copycats Challenge.
Now, because Shaughn's team won the toss,
they are first to face the challenge.
So, Mason's team, to keep it fair, we are going to ask you to leave
the studio while they're doing the game.
So, off you go, go and have a sandwich or something. Bye!
You're a nice team, though.
Right, guess what? All of your team, Shaughn,
are in play for this challenge. Shall we see what's in store?
I think we should. Mr D, what could it be?
'The Void. Players must follow an illuminated path across The Void.
'If they step off the path or onto The Void,
'they must go back to the start.
'20 points are awarded for each player across
'with a bonus 30 points if the whole team makes it.
Shaughn's team, are you ready to cross The Void?
All right, well, let's see what you'll be crossing today.
It's a cityscape!
It's like a landscape of a city.
OK, Ciaran, you're going first?
-Best of luck, team. Here we go.
In three, two, one - go.
'Well, there's the path and here we go, then, with The Void.
'If we get a move on, everyone will get to have a go.
'First it's Ciaran, Shaughn's friend.
'Very cool, calmly walking along that lit path.
'Step off the path, of course, and you have to go back to the start.
'Wow! He's doing this really well.
'Didn't need to use his arms or anything.
'Perfectly balanced. This is Eleanor now.
'Now, she is using her arms, look.
'And a little bit slower but a straight line...
'Oh! Straight line to the end.
'Excellent. Good, good, good.'
-OK, next up.
-'Next, it's Auntie Beverly.
'Carefully does it. There we go.
'Oh, steadying herself.
'Round that corner. Oh!
'Balance - so important in this game.'
'She's almost home.'
-'And then she's done it.
'Just over 30 seconds.'
Who's next? Shaughn, is that you?
'Shaughn, team captain now.
'Show them how it's done, Shaughn, come on.
'Now's the time.
'22 seconds left.
'He's doing all right.'
-'And he's there. Excellent.'
OK, here we go.
'Sophie, Shaughn's mum's friend, now.'
You've got ten seconds left. See if you can get to the end.
'Just a view seconds left, but it's worth having a go. You never know.
KLAXON HONKS Oh!
So close. Come and join us over here, guys.
Nice! And, do you know what, it's a lot harder than it looks.
If you're at home going, "That's well easy, I'd be able to do it,"
I bet you couldn't!
No, it is really difficult, isn't it?
Good, well done, we shall add those points from that challenge
to your total after the third and final round.
Remember, Mason's team still need to take on this challenge
and the scores from the Copycats challenge can make all
the difference in deciding which of our teams
go through to the Ball Room. Let's hear it for Shaughn's team.
APPLAUSE Good, good effort, that.
Welcome back to the game, Mason's team.
This is Mime Time.
Team captain Mason, I've got three cards in my hand.
You're going to pick one of these cards,
you're then going to have ten seconds to mime
whatever is on that card to the player next to you
and then so on and so on down the line.
The only rule here is I need to see silent performances, please.
As in every pass-it-on game, there's 50 points up for grabs,
but you will lose ten of those points
for every incorrect answer coming back down the line.
But we don't need to worry about that
-because you're going to get it, aren't you?
Yes! OK, the best of luck.
Copycats, are you ready?
-In that case, let's close the doors.
How you feeling, Mason? Are you all right, mate?
-Yeah, I'm good.
All right, then, best of luck. We've got green, blue or pink.
-Which one would you like?
OK. Have a look at that.
-Yeah? Do you reckon you can do that?
OK. The best of luck, Mason.
Ready, steady, mime.
OK, Sophie, your turn.
OK, Mark, your turn.
OK, stop miming.
Fantastic, going all the way down the line,
but for a maximum 50 points,
what's the answer I'm looking for, Richard?
That was brilliant!
We're going to see you all on Strictly in a few years' time,
I reckon. That was fantastic! Well, you've just smashed it again.
All right, Shaughn, here we go, mate.
We've got two cards left - pink or green?
-Take a look.
-Reckon you can do that?
-OK, then, best of luck.
You've got ten seconds.
Ready, steady, mime.
Time is up.
Right, we're playing for 50 points.
Great copying down the line, good mining.
Ciaran, for a maximum of 50 points, what are we looking for?
-Feeding a baby?
Feeding a baby.
Nice work! Oh, that was lovely.
Shaughn, in years to come, you're going to be a lovely dad.
That was great, that, that was really good.
Great copying. This is a good show.
At the end of Mime Time, you get yourselves the full 50 points.
So, after Mime Time,
will Mason's team be fox-trotting all the way to the Ball Room
or are Shaughn's team milking it?
It's time to check on the scores.
Mr D, what could they be?
'They're level pegging, Sam. After Mime Time,
'Sean's team have 100 points
'and Mason's team also have 100 points.'
I can't believe it.
-It's so exciting.
-It really is.
Right, the next round could make all the difference,
-and let's be honest, we need to make a difference.
It's time for Mason's team to take on
the mighty Copycats Challenge.
So, Mason, this is your chance to add some serious points
to your total.
-Are you ready?
Shaughn's team, you guys can have a rest.
You've done this. See you later!
-Have a drink or something to eat or something.
Stop it. A little newsflash here.
The whole team will be in play for this challenge.
Mr D, tell us what the challenge is.
'The Void. As before,
'players need to follow an illuminated path across The Void
'without stepping off.
'20 points are scored for each player across.
So, team, this is what you're crossing today.
Oh, a cityscape, nice!
Don't look down!
Felicity, the best of luck.
-You're going first, aren't you?
In three, two, one - go.
'Felicity, Flick, to start with, then.
'Just getting her balance.
-You can do it.
'There we are, that's better. She's getting going now.
'Encouragement coming from other members of the team.
'Round that corner.
'Oh, not on that bit! That's not lit up.
'Back to the start she goes.
-'If there is time, she can have another go.'
'Next on the grid.
'This is Sophie, Mason's friend, now.
'Little bit quicker, a little bit more confident.
'Heading for home now.'
-'On the home straight.
-OK, next one, next one, come on.
'Who's next? Oh, it's Mason himself, team captain.
'And he, too, is making good progress.
'..not quite so easy,
'but he's doing all right. Round those corners.
'The corners are difficult.
'Now he's got a straight run home.'
That's it, that's it, carry on.
'Brilliant. Well done.'
You've got time, come on.
'Now, this is Mason's dad, Mark.
'And he's going quite quickly.'
Nearly. That's it, that's it.
'And he too has a straight run to home,
-'he just made it!'
-Next one, next one, come on!
'Time running out, look, ten seconds.
'Oh, how fast is this?
'Richard knows time's running out, though.
'Oh, it's too quick, is it?
'Oh, that's on the edge! That's unlit!'
Come on over, guys.
I thought you were going to make it then, Richard.
Unlucky. Well done, guys, great teamwork there.
We'll add those challenge points to your total after our final round
and find out which of our teams have earned their place
in the Copycats Ball Room.
Let's hear it one more time for Mason's team! Well done.
APPLAUSE AND CHEERING
Welcome back, Shaughn's team. This is The Music Round.
Eleanor, all you have to do is pick a well-known tune then recreate that
tune to the person next to you using the old Copycats kazoo.
OK, there are 50 points to play for in this round, but don't forget
you will lose ten points for every incorrect answer
coming back down the line. You know the rules by now.
Could everybody except Eleanor now please put on your headphones
so you don't hear which song has been selected?
All right, our Copycats look ready. In that case, let's close the doors.
Now, Eleanor, at the top of the show,
all your team said that you were very good on the kazoo.
-Maybe. I don't know!
-Oh, no! The pressure's on now, isn't it?
-We've got three cards for you to pick from.
Pink, blue or green?
-Blue, take a look.
-Do you know that song?
We are going to play it into the studio as well so you can have
a good listen, get it in your head. Let's hear it.
# Baby, you light up my world like nobody else
# The way that you flip your hair gets me overwhelmed
# But when you smile at the ground... #
I miss them, I miss them.
Best of luck. You've got ten seconds.
Ready, steady, play.
Shaughn, your turn.
Oh, time is up, wow!
OK. I think everyone down the line knows what this song is.
Ciaran, for 50 points, please tell me you know the answer.
Is it Don't You Know You're Beautiful, or something.
You've got... Oh...
Unfortunately, that's not the name of the song.
You've got the right song but we do have to be strict.
We have to get the name of the song.
-Think about the lyrics in your head.
That's What Makes You Beautiful by One Direction?
# The way that you flip your hair... #
Ah, Ciaran, I'm so sorry, we do have to have the exact title of the song
and, thankfully, Shaughn, you did it and I'm not going to lie,
40 points in the music round is massively respectable,
so give them a round of applause. That was very good.
Good luck, Sophie. You've got pink or green - which one would you like?
-OK, have a look at that.
-Do you know that one?
We are going to play it into the studio
so you can get the melody into your head. Let's have a listen.
# Could you take care
# Of a broken soul?
# Will you hold me now? #
Best of luck, Sophie. Ready, steady, play.
OK, Richard, your turn.
OK, stop playing.
Right, good copying down the line.
Mason, for a maximum 50 points, any idea the answer we're looking for?
Mm, is it, Me, Myself and I?
It is not Me, Myself and I.
Good guess, though. Let's open the door for 40 points.
Mark, what are we looking for, mate?
-You're looking for work?
You can have my job!
Unfortunately, it's not the right answer, I'm afraid.
Let's open the door for 30 points.
Adrian, any idea?
Is it I Can't Get No Satisfaction?
What a great song!
It's not, I wish it was.
OK, let's open the door for 20 points.
Felicity, any idea?
Is it Shake It Off?
It is not Shake It Off by Taylor Swift.
Let's open the door for a minimum of ten points.
Richard, any idea?
It's not Yellow Submarine. Sophie, what was it?
It was Take Me Home by Jess Glynne.
-Have a listen.
-# Could you take care... #
# Of a broken soul? #
That's hard, a ballad, like that.
Unfortunately, you don't get any points.
Give them a round of applause anyway.
'After three rounds, then,
'Shaughn's team have 140 points and Mason's team have 100 points.'
Both teams have worked their socks off
but it's finally time to disclose those Copycats Challenge scores
and find out who has got a one-way ticket to the Ball Room.
In today's challenge, one team scored 60 points.
And one team scored 80 points.
We've added those scores to each team's total.
The team going through to the Copycats Ball Room
and playing for the trophy is...
And that means we have to say goodbye to Mason's team.
-Have you had a good time?
-You've been absolutely brilliant.
Give it up one more time for Mason's team.
-Off you go, guys.
-See you later, guys.
Congratulations, Shaughn's team.
You feeling happy?
You ready for one final challenge?
Good, good. It's time to play the Ball Room.
CHEERING AND APPLAUSE
Right, guys, you've come this far.
You've come a long way,
but can you go all the way and get your hands on this -
the Copycats trophy?
All you have to do to win it is beat the Ball Room.
OK, team captain Shaughn, who have you chosen to play?
I've chosen me, Ciaran and Bev.
OK, the best of luck. Before we open the doors and let you in,
let's take a look at how you win this.
'The Ball Room. Players must collect 20 blue balls and deposit them
'in the scoring cylinder before the time runs out.
'Any other coloured balls collected will be deducted from the total.
-Team, are you ready?
The best of luck.
In three, two, one...
Blast the balls!
'It's Shaughn with Beverly and Ciaran
'in the Ball Room, having a lot of fun, by the look of it.
'Come on, we need one of those balls.
'There it is, that's good, into the scoring cylinder.
'That's how it works. Ciaran puts another one in as well.
'He's really concentrating.
'And he's got the hang of this.
'Beverly looking down
'and shrieking a lot.
'Looking down. You can't pick them up off the floor, though,
'in this game.
'You have to catch them while they're in the air.
'Shaughn puts another one in. They're stacking up now.
'This is really good news.
'Just under 30 seconds to go.
'Another one from Ciaran.
'He's really got the hang of this now.
'And in goes another one.
'Come on, Shaughn, come on, Beverly.
'And there goes another from Ciaran, and another!
'He's really busy in there. Look at that.
'But do you have enough?
'Well, we're about to find out.
'Team, here comes the klaxon.'
Right, the balls have been counted,
the result has been checked and verified.
You needed 20 blue balls to win this trophy.
I can reveal that you collected...
-..19 blue balls.
Oh, guys, one off! I can't believe it!
So unfortunately that means that you don't get hold
of the Copycats trophy.
-But we're not going to let you go home empty-handed.
Oh, no. We're going to give you some Copycats T-shirts...
-..to remember your day.
-Have you enjoyed yourselves?
-You have been a wonderful team.
Give it up or more time for Shaughn's team.
Great team as well, a high-scoring game.
-We shall see you next time on Copycats.
Sam and Mark present as two families battle it out in a range of hilarious games.
Shaughn's team from Liverpool go up against Mason's team from Essex. They battle it out for a chance to get to the Ball Room and play for the ultimate money-can't-buy prize - the super, shiny, springy Copycats trophy!
