Leah here with Monday's Newsround.
Ant and Dec have dedicated their Bafta win to The Queen.
The ceremony which honours top TV in the last year took place
in London last night.
The pair accepted an award for best live event for the Queen's 90th
birthday celebration on ITV which they presented.
They also won an award for Saturday Night Takeaway.
And did you watch Eurovision on Saturday night?
It was won for the first time ever by Portugal.
The winner Salvador Sabral got a hero's welcome from thousands
of fans when he went back to Portugal.
But the singer was very modest, saying Portugal's real national hero
was still Cristiano Ronaldo.
If you've got a garage at home, what does it get used for?
Keeping the bike warm?
Martin's been to meet two school pupils who have been
using their coding skills to create something big in their garage.
Have a watch.
This might look like an ordinary garage but inside Beth
and Emily have been building something very special.
Meet Roy the Robot.
They built Roy from scratch and have just come back from America
where Roy competed at the Robotics World Championships.
They were one of the youngest teams there with 500 robots
from around the world.
Check out the awesome abilities on this robot!
They are back in the UK so I'm going to investigate
what this robot is all about.
What do you guys have to do to make Roy do his job?
First we had to design a robot that could pick up hex balls,
as many as four balls, and then stack them and get up
the bridge in one minute.
We've already programmed it to drive.
We've got a remote.
It looks a bit like what you use to play video games on the TV with.
We've changed our robot three times.
The first one didn't work so we changed it
to pick up three balls.
We wanted it to pick up four so we changed it again.
What was it like in America?
You competed against 500 different teams.
My favourite part is competing with the other teams
and getting to meet them and how their robot works.
So what's next for Roy?
We won't use Roy any more.
We'll make a new robot.
We found out in America what our new game is and the new game
is hoops instead of hex balls, so we need to try and get as many
hoops onto a pole as we can.
So watch out, robot makers.
There will be a new robot into very soon.
There will be a new robot in town very soon.
Next up this man is set to go where no wingsuit
pilot has gone before - 40,000 feet in the air
to break four world records.
Ricky's got more.
This is Fraser.
He jumps out of planes in this special wingsuit for fun.
Yes, it's kind of a hobby.
And this week he is trying to break four wingsuit jumping world records.
He wants to fly at an altitude of 40,000 feet, that's higher
than the top of Mount Everest, the earth's highest mountain,
and he aims to glide at 250 mph wearing just his suit,
no other equipment.
That's very fast.
I jump all over the world but I train mainly in the UK
and I have a phenomenal team behind me who basically
pulled this all together.
He's carrying out the special world record attempt over Canada
and the US and hopes to raise money for an Armed Forces charity.
The suit has got a number of features.
First of all it is huge, which gives me a massive surface
area, which gives me the optimum shape and form to be able
to fly for a long time.
So what does it feel like in the sky?
All I can explain to you is that it's one of those sensations
that's really special.
Take all the pressure off your body, put yourself into a flat position,
and imagine you are a bird and you can fly
wherever you want to.
I see a point four or five miles away and I can target that
point and fly to it.
The suit actually inflates around me.
The airflow rushes into it.
It inflates and it is quite large and it allows me to actually glide.
Instead of falling at 120 mph I am falling at 30 to 40 mph.
Fraser has been training hard for this challenge and over
the years he has carried out 1300 wingsuit dives.
And talking of skydiving, a 101-year-old from Devon has become
the oldest person ever to do one.
Verdun Hayes, who fought in World War Two,
jumped 15,000 feet from a plane along with three
generations of his family yesterday afternoon.
He beats the previous record set by a man who was 35 days younger.
That's all from me.
Newsround's back right here in about half an hour.
Wild and Weird is on the way,
and our Fave at Five today is brand-new Hetty Feather! Yes!
We cannot wait for it.
Hey, Karim, I was thinking, I bet you are well relieved
that you didn't live in Victorian times, aren't you? Why?
Well, they'd have shoved you right up a chimney, wouldn't they, eh?
