How far would you dare to go
to win a prize for YOUR family?
Would you do this?
Or even this?
I'm The Dare Devil and it's time to push another team to their limits.
# A family I find They dream of a prize
# On courage they draw With hope in their eyes
# All they need do Is face each of my dares
# There's revulsion, embarrassment And heart-pounding scares
# So of wishes Wants and temptation, beware
# For the Dare Devil waits...
# ..with a devilish dare. #
Ah, another wretched team of hapless human-lings for me to toy with.
Who have we here?
Ah, Matilda, Matty, M-Dog.
You must be Imogen.
Well, two girls, double trouble.
Let's have a look at the grown-ups.
Ah, Matilda's mum, Sophie, eurgh. Who else is there?
Ah, Matilda's big sister, Ella.
What's that, she's not scared of anything?
Well, we'll see about that.
And finally, it's Imogen's mum, Bronte.
Well, an all-girl team, let's go and meet them.
-Who are you?
Some call me The Ex-Rental Copy but you can call me the Dare Devil.
-The Dare Devil?
-The very same.
I'm here to offer you the chance to win an accolade of untold riches.
Ready your eyes.
This is my precious "medale of championes",
forged in the fires of...
Kingston upon Hull.
Uh-uh-uh, if you want the gold... It's not gold.
..then all you must do is complete a few harmless, devilish dares.
There are three devilish dares and three doubloons to be won.
Matilda and Imogen must decide which grown-up-ling does which dare.
-Dare Devil, Dare Devil, we dare...
I'll give them one doubloon to get them started
because if someone is too scared to do a dare, they can use a doubloon
to buy their way out, but someone must always take their place.
The more doubloons won means more time for Matilda and Imogen
when they face my dreaded Chambers of Bravery in a bid
to tip the Scales of Destiny and claim their prize.
Think you're up to it?
-Then, tell me, Matilda and Imogen,
what is your almost inevitably bland team name?
-The Wacky Wimbles!
All right, time for our first dastardly dare.
But what could it be?
Let us consult the Scroll Of Secrets.
This ancient scroll holds the clue to what the first dare might be.
Matilda, you read it loud and clear, but remember,
the devil is in the detail.
What could that mean?
-What else does it say?
This one's different, so it's not a lark.
-A dark maze with a twist.
-In the pitch-black dark.
All right, then, Wacky Wimbles, the time has come for you to decide
which of your grown-up-lings will undertake our first devilish dare?
Will they choose The Mum, Alternate Mum,
or will big sister Ella be first in line?
-Dare Devil, Dare Devil, we dare Ella.
Ella, you have been chosen for our first challenge.
Now, come on, then, there's no time to lose.
Ah, yes, the door has brought us
to a most strange place.
Humans gather here
to learn how to put out fires
but it's not fire that's brought us here,
it's another of my favourite things - very, very dark rooms
and it's there that we'll play our first game,
in a dare I like to call...
Room of Doom!
This large metal box may not look much from the outside
but it's what's inside that excites me.
Are you curious?
Well, here's what you need to know.
Big Sister Ella's dare
is to crawl through 20 metres of fire training tunnel
in the pitch dark.
To make things more fun,
she'll be transporting a jug of my favourite drink,
If Ella spills more than half my stinky beverage, then it's a fail.
All right, big sister Ella,
you certainly seem ready to face the Room of Doom.
Off you go.
Oh, my God, it's so dark.
-We'll be able to see everything on my TV.
-It's like a cage.
-What is it?
Ella has no idea that my old schoolmate Smiley Bobs
is lurking in the darkness...
..ready to make her spill my pond-water.
Oh, it's so dark.
She can't see a thing. Look, she's feeling around with her hand,
trying to find... What's that?
Ooh, it's horrible.
She's encountered the spooky cobwebs
but they're the least of Ella's problems.
It's clown time!
SMILEY BOBS LAUGHS MANICALLY AND ELLA SCREAMS
-Yes, Smiley Bobs has made her presence felt.
I'm going to get those girls.
This is so scary.
Well, I have to say,
-she's still keeping most of the pond-water in her jug.
Oh, it's all wet.
Yeah, she's been blasted with smoke
and Smiley Bobs has plenty more tricks
to cause some spillage from my jug.
She's spilt some water but I really want her to fail.
Time for Smiley Bobs to kick it up a gear.
and even a feather in the face.
Argh, what's that?
-You can do it!
Ooh, what is that? Is it bugs?
She's being attacked by monster spaghetti from above.
I hate the Dare Devil!
Just time for one last fright from Smiley Bobs when the lights come on.
Impressive work, big sister Ella.
It's time to find out just how well you held your nerve.
Pour the remaining pond-water from the jug of transportation
into the great jug of measurement.
I'm a "jug half-full" kind of guy.
-Yes! That's well over halfway.
That means, of course, that the Wacky Wimbles have passed the dare
and the doubloon is yours.
I think the scariest bit was when the clown popped the balloon.
She wasn't really expecting it.
I'm really, really pleased to get a doubloon for the girls
cos they really wanted the first one.
They now have -
All right, it's time for our second dastardly dare.
What could it be? Let us once again consult the Scroll of Secrets.
Imogen, you take charge this time,
but remember, the devil is in the detail.
What could that possibly mean?
Well, it's definitely something wet.
So, maybe it's a water slide
-and you have to get numbers whilst going down.
-A water slide?
All right, Wacky Wimbles, the time has come for you to decide
which of your grown-up-lings
will undertake this second dastardly dare.
Will they choose The Mum, big sister Ella again
or the Alternate Mum?
-Dare Devil, Dare Devil, we dare...
The Mum, you are the chosen one. We must depart.
Ah, the door has brought us
to one of Britain's most natural landscapes.
People supposedly come here to have fun and get wet.
Now, I can't promise you fun, The Mum, but you will definitely
be getting very, very wet in a dare I like to call
-Tell me, The Mum, how are your rafting skills?
-Oh, uh, zero.
Well that's good because there's no raft for you here, no.
Instead, you'll have to jump in
and navigate this dangerously fast-flowing white-water course.
Here's what you need to know.
On a terrifying trip along these rapids,
The Mum's challenge is to look out for three numbers on white cards
that I've dotted along the course.
Oh, dear, what am I doing?
To confuse her, I've also placed some decoy numbers on red cards.
To free the doubloon,
she must only enter the numbers from the white cards into my lock.
-Anchors aweigh, The Mum.
-Go on, Mum.
That's it, down the first ramp.
Here comes the first number, but will The Mum spot it?
It's the big one, yes.
That's a five.
That's it, down she goes again.
What a dunking and here's your second number, The Mum.
Remember, the red numbers are decoys.
You can do it!
-By the way, have you seen my piranha? I, uh...
Here's the next white number.
Will The Mum take that on board or will she take on water?
The Mum survived that drenching
and hurtles on past red seven.
THEY CHEER AND WHOOP
There are two numbers left to spot
as she hits the most treacherous part of the course.
Little less flailing around underwater
and a little more floating.
The Mum's taken another dip, but did she see that number?
THEY CHEER AND URGE HER ON
That's it, she's on the home straight.
One more red number
and The Mum is home and dry.
-Well, home at least.
Welcome back to dry land, The Mum.
Now, we asked you to look out for six numbers dangling overhead,
but there's a little twist.
the ones on the red cards were red herrings.
I need you to give me only the three numbers that you saw
on the white cards and I'll need them in the correct order.
Enter them in.
Oh, dear! I can reveal you got the right numbers, but they were in the
wrong order and that means you haven't passed the dare.
The doubloon is mine!
Trying to keep going in the right direction
without crashing into the sides or the big bollards in the water
was the biggest challenge.
I'm really proud that she actually went in and did it
cos it was really cold in the water, as well.
Yes, they failed and still only have -
All right, Wacky Wimbles,
let us once again consult the Scroll of Secrets.
Matilda, you take charge again this time, but remember,
-the devil is in...
What could that possibly mean?
-Well, something to do with flowers, anyway.
Or see how many people will take the flower.
All right, Matilda and Imogen, the time has come for you to announce
which of your grown-up-lings will undertake this final challenge.
-Dare Devil, Dare Devil, we dare...
Alternate Mum, you are chosen for our final dare.
All right, enough of this jibber-jabber. Choppity-chop!
Ah, yes, here we are in Waltham Cross.
It's this romantic locale that has inspired our final dare,
a dare I like to call
12 Dead Roses.
OK, Alternate Mum, your dare today will be to give a rose
to the good people of this town
but what you say will be controlled by Matilda and Imogen.
Still sounding good? Here's the "informazione".
To secure a doubloon, Alternate Mum must successfully hand out
six of her 12 roses in a series of cringeworthy ways.
Every time she's turned down,
a rose is lost, so she must overcome her embarrassment.
OK, Matilda and Imogen, Alternate Mum's in place.
I think it's time for you to feed her her first cringe-inducing line.
This is what you have to do,
pretend that you think the person is famous, tell them how much
-you love their work and that you just want to give them a rose.
Excuse me, sir, are you from that TV show?
Excuse me, kind lady, can I present you with this rose?
A bad start, that's two roses gone.
Do I recognise you? Are you from that TV show?
Yes, we could have a punter.
What show are you in again? You must remind me, I love your work.
-Fantastic. Please have this free rose. Thank you.
-Well done, Alternate Mum,
time for our second line.
You have to sing a song in opera-style with the words,
"You are beautiful. This rose is for being beautiful."
Excuse me, sir, can I give you this free rose?
Oh, another potential.
# You are beautiful
# Here is a rose because you are beautiful. #
Yes, I'd be amazed if he didn't marry her on the spot.
-There we go, that's another success. Well done.
Alternate Mum is hiding her blushes well.
I to the L, to the O, to the V, to the E,
to the Y, to the O, to the U.
-It's for you, yes. Thank you.
Well done, Alternate Mum, that's another one.
That's three successes,
but she still needs another three to pass the dare.
Next up, an awkward staring challenge.
Excuse me, kind lady, can I present you with this free rose?
I think you are fantastic, I could gaze into your eyes all day long.
Thank you. SHE LAUGHS NERVOUSLY
-And an immediate hit.
-Can I have the rose now?
It's looking good, but how will Alternate Mum handle
the old pick-your-nose-with-a-rose dare?
Roses are red I love a good rose
The stems are particularly good To pick your nose.
That's beautiful, thank you.
-I will treasure it for the rest of my life...
-that's very kind of you!
-..especially that bit.
-That's five triumphs in the bag.
-She's doing so well.
One more win and the Wacky Wimbles will have the doubloon.
But I've saved the most dastardly challenge to the end.
OK, Bronte, you have to say, "Can you hold this rose for me, please?
"I've got terrible wind
"and this flower isn't the only thing that I need to get rid of."
Can Alternate Mum deliver?
Excuse me, kind lady, excuse me,
can I present you with this free rose?
How embarrassing, another rose gone.
Yes, you can practically smell the tension.
-Excuse me, sir, can I present you with this free rose?
Cos I have terrible wind and wind is not the only thing
I need to get rid of, so please take this rose.
-It looks like she's done it.
-She's done it, well done!
Well done, Wacky Wimbles. Alternate Mum, come on over.
Wacky Wimbles, I hate to say it, but the doubloon is yours!
I think that dare was really hard for my mum, cos she had to give
flowers away to strangers and say really embarrassing things.
# Here is a rose Because you are beautiful. #
The most embarrassing part was when I had to sing opera,
clearly I was dreadful.
That's it for the grown-ups, let's see how they've done.
The Wacky Wimbles have passed two of their three dares.
Add that to the doubloon I gave them,
means they have three doubloons, giving Matilda and Imogen
180 seconds as we head back to my castle.
Welcome, welcome to my castle.
We're heading down to my dungeon. Feeling brave, Imogen and Matilda?
-Bring it on!
-Bring what on what?
Anyway, we're about to face up to my terrifying Chambers of Bravery 3.0.
To win the prize and escape my dungeon, the Wacky Wimbles must
try and open all of the Treasure Tanks by playing my devilish games.
-I can't find it, Amy.
-In a moment of weakness...
..I opened the first tank to give them a head start.
The more tanks THEY open,
the easier it will be in the final pitch-black chamber
to grab enough doubloons to tip the Scales of Destiny
and claim the glory.
Welcome! Welcome to my dungeon, Wacky Wimbles.
Now, listen closely, if one of you doesn't want to do a dare,
or it all gets a bit too much, you must shout, "Stop!"
and someone can take your place
although you will lose ten seconds off the clock. Comprende?
-All right, it's time for us to face my first horrifying chamber,
it's The Organ of Halvor!
To open the tank,
the tangled notes of the Organ of Halvor must be solved.
Whilst one plays the notes written on my music sheet,
the other must confront terrifying beasts as they struggle to find
the same tune on their keys.
Well, Imogen and Matilda, you must both enter
the first horrifying chamber but only one of you
will face the beasts, who will it be?
-You, Matilda, very good,
and what creatures do you think are lurking therein?
-Hopefully not maggots.
-Hopefully not maggots.
All right, then - your time will start when you take off the cloth.
-In you go.
-Go for it, girls.
What creepy delights await the Wacky Wimbles?
It's the revolting rats!
All right, time starts now.
THE BUTTONS PLAY EERIE MUSIC WHEN PRESSED
Imogen has played the tune written on my music sheet.
Matilda now has to brave the rats
to find the same tune on her mixed up notes.
-Think the third one.
They've found the second note, but need to find the first.
OK, fourth one.
That's the fourth note and here are the others she needs to find.
But Matilda's still playing the wrong sequence.
-The girls are now playing any note they can find.
They need to organise themselves to play the right tune.
-Stop the clock.
Out you come, out you come.
Well, how did you enjoy the company of the rats?
-Of course they're fluffy.
I washed and blow-dried them myself only this morning.
You've got two tanks open
and 99 seconds left on the clock which you will need as we head
to our second terrifying chamber - it's the Circles of Solocles.
The final tank will open
when the Circles of Solocles are correctly aligned
but the code to the sequence is hidden in my Dome of Doom.
To reveal the symbols, the lights must be illuminated
and the terrifying creatures must be faced.
All right, Matilda and Imogen, it's time for you both to enter
our second chamber, but one of you, and one of you alone,
will face the Dome of Doom, who will it be?
You, Imogen, very good. And what dastardly creatures
do you think are hungrily awaiting your arrival?
Hopefully not snakes.
How do you feel about giant spiders?
Cos that's what it is.
Well, you've got 99 seconds left on the clock.
Your time will start when your head enters the dome.
-In you go.
-Go on, guys.
-Good luck, Immy.
That's it, up she comes, time starts now.
-Come on, Immy.
-Use your fingers.
-Get the torch, yes.
-OK, now, turn it on, quick.
-OK, look at the roof.
-The first one...
-Come on, quick, Immy.
-..is a skull...
-..with a bone going through the middle
-and has a crack on its head.
-With a bone in the middle of it?
Going on a diagonal.
-OK, is it going to top right?
-OK, the second one.
-One minute left, girls.
It's a triangle, the point is pointing down and it's got
a white bit, like a line, and a pupil in the middle.
-So, is it a triangle pointing down with an eye in the middle?
-OK, third one.
-A key, it's upside down and it has two little bits.
So, is the circle at the top?
-No, the circle's at the bottom.
That's 30 seconds remaining.
Yes, that's it.
All right, stop the clock and out you come, out you come.
Matilda and Imogen's smart work sees them carry 25 seconds
to add to the 60 seconds I'll give them as they end their quest
at the fearsome Tanks of Treachery.
Imogen and Matilda, we stand outside the Tanks of Treachery,
but only one of you may enter - who will it be?
You have 85 seconds on the clock to gather enough doubloons to tip
the Scales of Destiny.
And remember, you can shout "Stop" at any time. In you go!
All right, Matilda, your time will start in three, two, one,
off you go!
-Eurrggh! Eurrggh, that's gross!
-Remember, Matilda can't see a thing
and has no idea what she's putting her hands into.
-Just keep digging, there's a few in there.
-Yeah, we're doing well.
-She's certainly industrious.
That's 60 seconds left, Matilda.
-Move tanks, move tanks.
-Keep going, come on!
-Oh, this is impossible.
She's braving the darkness,
but will she find enough doubloons to tip the scales?
-Next tank, next tank.
-Go, go, go.
Oh, that's gross.
Go, go, go, go, go!
You found any?
Matilda can't find any more doubloons,
so she heads back to the first tank.
Nine, eight, seven, six,
three, two, one.
Stop the clock, out you come, out you come, Matilda.
Yes, that's it, welcome back, welcome back.
Matilda, it's time to face the scales.
Hand over the doubloons.
Oh, there's lots.
-That's it, is that the lot?
-Let's put these on the scales
and see how you've done. Chuck a couple in. No movement.
Maybe another one. Well, a couple more.
It's not looking good, is it? Oh, a little flicker. Yes!
Well, how about that? You've won, you've defeated me!
This is the worst possible outcome but I have to give you your prize.
Ah, disgusting, go on, get out of my sight.
I never want to see you again.
Chalk this one up to experience.
I hate winners. I need a lift.
Book us in for a weekend of pampering, will you? Huh?
Yes, a sauna for me
and a wash and blow-dry for you.
fearless children and adults beware,
for the Dare Devil waits
with a devilish dare!
In the most daring game show on CBBC, the Dare Devil leaves his castle to impart some heart-pounding scares on the Wacky Wimbles in London.
