Hi, I'm Ricky, it's Monday morning and this is Newsround, coming up...

:00:00.:00:12.

We find out if there was any foul play in this chicken race.

:00:13.:00:15.

The first 2017 contestant has been announced and it's...

:00:16.:00:39.

The first person we can announce dancing on Strictly Come Dancing,

:00:40.:00:50.

codenamed Cleo, real name Mollie King!

:00:51.:00:58.

Yes, it's Mollie King from The Saturdays.

:00:59.:01:00.

She's been announced on Nick Grimshaws morning show

:01:01.:01:02.

The other contestants will be announced over the next few weeks.

:01:03.:01:06.

The Netherlands are European champions after winning

:01:07.:01:08.

Hosts the Netherlands won the competition with a thrilling 4-2

:01:09.:01:11.

The tournament is being called the most successful

:01:12.:01:16.

Let's get you a round-up of the action at the World Athletics

:01:17.:01:21.

Let's start with the boos - American sprinter Justin Gatlin,

:01:22.:01:26.

who shocked a lot of people when he beat Usain Bolt in the 100m

:01:27.:01:29.

men's final, was booed again after picking up gold.

:01:30.:01:32.

Gatlin's been in trouble before for taking banned drugs.

:01:33.:01:39.

Better news for Jessica Ennis Hill - the retired athlete didn't have

:01:40.:01:42.

to work up a sweat to pick up this gold.

:01:43.:01:47.

She got the top prize after Russian drug cheat Tatyana Chernova

:01:48.:01:49.

was stripped of her 2011 World Athletics Champion

:01:50.:01:51.

So an upgrade from silver to gold for Jess.

:01:52.:01:59.

Do you think men should always be the ones to put out the bins

:02:00.:02:02.

Well, the people who make adverts have been told to be more careful

:02:03.:02:07.

about how they show the roles of boys and girls.

:02:08.:02:10.

Grown-up like mummy, and strong like daddy.

:02:11.:02:19.

That's nothing compared to Captain Awesome's day.

:02:20.:02:25.

I don't really watch this type of thing.

:02:26.:02:29.

Well, if you watch closely, there's an issue that some people

:02:30.:02:35.

That's with the way they seem to show how girls should be

:02:36.:02:42.

This is known as gender stereotyping.

:02:43.:02:46.

Ads that paint a picture that it's, for example, the woman's role

:02:47.:02:49.

to tidy up after her family, who've trashed the house.

:02:50.:02:51.

Similarly, ads that mock men for being hopeless at performing

:02:52.:02:58.

straightforward parental or household tasks, just

:02:59.:03:00.

Now that the kids know what to look for, has it changed

:03:01.:03:07.

The way they are putting it is just, like, girls are weak and pretty

:03:08.:03:12.

but boys are strong, and that's not always

:03:13.:03:15.

I actually know quite a few boys who quite like dolls,

:03:16.:03:23.

but I know about ten girls who hates dolls.

:03:24.:03:29.

I think you should get a boy and a few girls

:03:30.:03:36.

The Munch Bunch is all right because it has girls in and boys in.

:03:37.:03:43.

If I was in charge of the adverts, I would try to make it more modern

:03:44.:03:48.

Just try and close the sexist gap and try and get an equal number

:03:49.:03:54.

Next, it's time to tell you about our latest Newsround special.

:03:55.:04:15.

This one tells the story of 10-year-old Sumayyah,

:04:16.:04:17.

11-year-old Shubhashukla and 9-year-old Kamolpriya.

:04:18.:04:18.

They're all are on a mission of a lifetime to find out

:04:19.:04:21.

what happened to their families during Indian partition

:04:22.:04:23.

They travel from the UK to India and Bangladesh to re-create

:04:24.:04:26.

the journey that their families made so many years ago.

:04:27.:04:29.

I want you to go to India and find out what you can

:04:30.:04:32.

I have some letters, you go to Bangladesh

:04:33.:04:36.

Once we find it we will tell you all about it.

:04:37.:04:40.

We're wondering if you could help us find an old house?

:04:41.:04:53.

This was one of the posh houses in this area.

:04:54.:04:56.

I've found a piece of the puzzle of my family's history and I'm

:04:57.:04:59.

willing to find out the rest of this puzzle.

:05:00.:05:04.

It's unlike anything I've ever seen in my life!

:05:05.:05:07.

We believe that this is your ancestral home.

:05:08.:05:13.

The thing that I'll probably remember about this whole trip

:05:14.:05:21.

It's amazing, it's amazing, it's amazing!

:05:22.:05:28.

I just think she must have been such a strong woman

:05:29.:05:31.

And I'm really proud that I could uncover my

:05:32.:05:37.

Finally, check out the annual World Hen Racing Championships.

:05:38.:05:55.

Every year about 30 to 40 of the fastest hens battle it out

:05:56.:05:59.

in the Peak District in the North of England.

:06:00.:06:01.

My favourite TV show is The Dumping Ground,

:06:02.:06:07.

because all of them are always up to mischief.

:06:08.:06:10.
