I'm Ricky and you're with Newsround.

0:00:080:00:10

On the way.

0:00:100:00:13

Who's the latest star to join Strictly?

0:00:130:00:17

And watch this mascot's epic fail!

0:00:170:00:27

First to the big argument between the United States

0:00:290:00:32

of America and North Korea, a country in the east of Asia.

0:00:320:00:35

So what do we know?

0:00:350:00:37

Here's Whitney:

0:00:370:00:41

Two men.

0:00:410:00:42

Two Koreas.

0:00:420:00:43

Warships, missiles and threats.

0:00:430:00:46

What is going on, and is it as scary as it sounds?

0:00:460:00:49

Let's start with the two Koreas.

0:00:490:00:52

One country is called North Korea, and the other South Korea.

0:00:520:00:57

They were split in two after World War II, fought a war

0:00:570:01:01

with each other shortly after that and haven't got along since.

0:01:010:01:08

And now the two men.

0:01:080:01:11

One is the leader of North Korea - he's Kim Jong Un, and he runs

0:01:110:01:15

the country just like his dad and grandad before him.

0:01:150:01:18

The other is Donald Trump, President of the USA -

0:01:180:01:22

a country which has supported South Korea for a long time.

0:01:220:01:26

North Korea is a country that has cut itself off

0:01:260:01:31

from the rest of the world.

0:01:310:01:33

Lots of things are run in secret there, and Kim has huge control

0:01:330:01:36

over people's lives.

0:01:360:01:38

He's also been trying to build nuclear missiles -

0:01:380:01:41

powerful bombs that can cause devastating damage -

0:01:410:01:45

that one day might be able to hit the USA.

0:01:450:01:49

President Trump wants to stop this happening and he's given a warning.

0:01:490:01:53

North Korea best not make any more threats to the United States -

0:01:530:01:59

they will be met with fire and fury like the world has never seen.

0:01:590:02:07

In return, North Korea has threatened US military

0:02:070:02:11

bases in the area.

0:02:110:02:14

So all of this is pretty worrying to many people around the world.

0:02:140:02:18

But there have been many arguments between the USA

0:02:180:02:21

and North Korea in the past - and although they've never been

0:02:210:02:25

friends, things have been worked out to stop a war.

0:02:250:02:28

Everyone's hoping that will be the case this time as well.

0:02:280:02:35

Meet Mark Beaumont.

0:02:350:02:37

He's on a mammoth mission to cycle around the world,

0:02:370:02:39

in a record-breaking 80 days.

0:02:390:02:42

And he's just reached the halfway point of his journey in Australia.

0:02:420:02:45

Here's Jenny.

0:02:450:02:51

Mark Beaumont wants to be in the record books.

0:02:510:02:56

Back in 2008, he cycled around the world in 194 days

0:02:560:02:59

and set a new world record.

0:02:590:03:09

His next adventure took him from Alaska in North America

0:03:110:03:13

to Argentina in South America.

0:03:130:03:15

In 2015, he cycled the length of Africa from Cairo

0:03:150:03:17

to Cape Town in just 42 days.

0:03:170:03:19

Nearly ten years on from his first round the world record,

0:03:190:03:21

it has been broken by other riders, and he now stands at 123 days.

0:03:210:03:25

This time, he is not trying to break the existing record

0:03:250:03:28

by a couple of days, that would be far too easy,

0:03:280:03:30

he is aiming to do it in just 80.

0:03:300:03:32

And it has not been easy.

0:03:320:03:36

The first day, putting miles in the bank feels great.

0:03:360:03:39

My front wheel went in and it was just a huge hole.

0:03:390:03:42

The first thing I felt was a broken tooth in my mouth.

0:03:420:03:45

I have chipped my canine tooth.

0:03:450:03:54

End of day 26 - that is the Chinese border.

0:03:540:03:56

This is the end of leg one.

0:03:560:04:00

I am in Australia, that has not sunk in yet.

0:04:000:04:04

I am here with my hot water bottle, with food, and I have

0:04:040:04:09

slept about 20 minutes.

0:04:090:04:12

It is an 18,000 mile journey in total.

0:04:120:04:14

Which means he will have to continue to bike more

0:04:140:04:17

than 200 miles each day, 16 hours at a time to

0:04:170:04:19

set the world record.

0:04:190:04:20

Watch this space.

0:04:200:04:21

We're weeks away from the start of Strictly Come Dancing 2017,

0:04:210:04:25

and the third of 15 celebrities, battling it out for the glitter ball

0:04:250:04:29

trophy, has been announced today.

0:04:290:04:36

And it's Ruth Langsford, a TV host on ITV's This Morning.

0:04:360:04:39

She joins Mollie King from pop group, The Saturdays,

0:04:390:04:42

and EastEnders actor, Davood Ghadami.

0:04:420:04:46

If you've been watching the World Athletics Championships

0:04:460:04:48

you may have noticed the event's official mascot.

0:04:480:04:50

Hero the Hedgehog - he's been trying to get

0:04:500:04:52

into the sporting action too.

0:04:520:04:54

Here he is trying to balance himself but can he make it?

0:04:540:04:58

No, he can't.

0:04:580:04:59

That's all from me, Newsround's back from seven forty

0:04:590:05:01

in the morning, with Jenny.

0:05:010:05:02

Have you got a super skill or hidden talent?

0:05:040:05:06

Perhaps you're a superfan of a pop star or celeb.

0:05:060:05:08

Ooh, hey, maybe you'd love to get your own back on a friend

0:05:080:05:11
