They were just dropped off about half an hour ago.
-They needed somewhere to sleep.
-Don't they have a home?
-Not that we know of.
Why are they scratching?
It's called scabies.
-Who are they?
-We don't know.
They don't speak English.
Where did they come from?
We don't know that either.
Where are their bags?
They don't have any.
We don't know anything about them.
It's all a bit of a mystery, Gus.
I like solving mysteries.
THEY CALL OUT IN SHOCK
What are your names?
Where do you come from?
This is England.
Frank, you have difficulties with communication.
-I didn't understand that.
He said Manchester United.
How can he possibly know Manchester United when they don't even know where they live?
No, just Frank. Gus.
HE SPEAKS AFRICAN LANGUAGE
-It's breakfast time, boys. Breakfast, yes?
-They have got names, you know.
-It's not fair.
-Oh, Lily, come on.
Why can't Tracy look after us?
Because I'm not allowed anyone from the Dumping Ground here without Cam.
It seems that way
but if anything went wrong, Mike could be responsible.
Nothing would have gone wrong.
Yes, but we can't take that chance.
look, I know it's a stupid rule
but stupid rules deserve to be broken.
(WHISPERS) Don't tell Cam.
Hiya, have you had something to eat?
That's an egg.
He knows what an egg is, stupid.
He might be used to the emu ones.
-Emus are from Australia.
-Solved the mystery yet, Gus?
-Their names are Ade and Dayo.
-They like football.
They sleep in the same bed.
Ade has nightmares, and the scabies are a lot better now.
What are scabies?
They're parasites that burrow under your skin.
-Hey, that's enough of that.
Yes, it's not their fault.
SPEAKS AFRICAN LANGUAGE
You are joking me.
Oh, Mike, can Carmen come back for lunch with Lily?
-I thought she had a half-day because Cam's out?
-Her meeting got cancelled.
-So Gus, where do Ade and Dayo come from?
-That's my next question.
You mean money.
You swam ashore?
Wait, you haven't said where you came.
Would you like to come to Lily's for lunch today?
-But it's a surprise, so you mustn't call her, OK?
-And don't mention it to anyone else.
Oh, please, it'll be a double surprise.
It's not up to me.
Cam probably would have asked me, she just forgot.
-It would be much better with three, wouldn't it?
-We're not supposed to tell anyone.
-What are you doing?
-Waiting for you.
-All set for Lily's get well party.
-I only told Tee.
-I only told Johnny.
-You said it was a party.
-It's not a party, it's just lunch
and I'm cooking.
-They're playing football.
-Are they playing football?
-Shall we go and play football with them?
Listen, there's something I didn't quite explain.
Cam's not going to be there so I shouldn't even take Carmen.
OK, as long as Mike says yes, you promise not to tell anyone.
# I can see clearly now the rain is gone
# I can see all obstacles in my way
# Gone are the dark clouds that had me blind
# It's going to be a bright, bright, sunshinin' day
# It's gonna be a bright, bright, sunshinin' day... #
Who did that to you?
Did someone hit you?
-I don't know.
-Well, you've been interrogating him all morning.
-But I haven't got to...
I mean back to the beginning...
I mean, I haven't solved the mystery yet.
Who hit you?
Was it your mum and dad? Mama, Papa?
A gun, there was someone with a gun.
Lots of guns.
No, just men with guns.
You both ran?
The rubbish dump?
Oh, you hid in the rubbish tip?
-HE IMITATES MACHINE GUN
-They shot people.
-We've solved the mystery of Ade and Dayo.
-OK, go on then.
They came in the back of a lorry and were thrown out by the driver.
The lorry came over from France on the ferry.
The lorry came from Italy where they paid the driver
with money their grandfather gave them.
How do you know this?
I haven't finished.
They went to Italy on a small boat from Africa, which capsized.
Ade and Dayo had to swim ashore.
Luckily the money was wrapped in plastic. Ade?
-Who told you this?
-ALL: Haven't finished!
-They crossed the Sahara Desert in a...
-The Sahara Desert?
With lots of other people.
This was because they had to run away from home.
Why? Careful now, that's hot.
Because men with guns killed everyone in the village,
including their mum and dad.
Ade and Dayo hid in the rubbish dump.
-How did you figure this out?
-It's simple when you know how.
-Hang on, I'll get the phone.
You want to eat? Go on, eat. Eat.
-Hiya. Shouldn't you be going?
-Plenty of time.
-Actually, I might get going.
Where's my jacket?
Quick, get in the bedroom.
What was that?
That was just Lily deciding what she was having for tea.
Thanks for doing this, Tracy.
No problem, you just concentrate on your meeting.
-Lily, your flat's lovely.
-Yes, it's really nice and clean.
There's so much stuff.
-Thanks. Bye, Lily.
-What's going on?
Why are they laughing?
I think he's saying you've just got to use your right hand.
-I'm using both hands.
-Yes, I know, but...
Do you mean just use this hand?
-So what's the left for?
-It seems Ade and Dayo won't be staying.
-What do you mean?
The social worker's coming over and someone from Immigration.
-Get them ready to go.
-OK, I'll get the clothes ready.
-You're not just going to send them back?
-Not when they've come all this way.
-Oh, they're illegals, aren't they?
Immigration can do what they want.
Right, one for you, one for you,
-and one for you.
-This is so cool.
-And we can do whatever we want?
Anything you like. You can cut, paint, rip, staple.
-We could have our own fashion show.
-Yes, we can make it a competition.
Mine's definitely going to win.
-Can you help me, Tracy?
-We can do it all together.
We can have an anti-fashion show, the Rebel Collection by the Team DG.
We can't let Ade and Dayo be sent back.
OK, so we stall Immigration till we think of a long-term plan.
So we need a short-term plan.
-What if they went missing?
-Then Immigration wouldn't find them.
-So we don't need a short-term plan.
-Going missing IS the short-term plan, right?
'Right, the attic's never used so we can hide them up there.
'What will they sleep on?
'Beanbags, we'll make it comfy.
'We need games, things to make them feel at home.
-'What are they going to eat?
-Whatever we can get out of the kitchen.
'This has to be planned down to the last second.'
No-one ever comes up here, you'll be perfectly safe.
-Your bedroom, your chill zone.
-It's just like a studio apartment.
-No, it's totally rank.
How are they going to go toilet?
I wrote down a bathroom schedule, there are five just-in-cases a day.
OK, and what about food?
There's a rota for exercise, entertainment and education.
Are you all right, Mr Hamster? Oh, yes, you are.
Oh, yes, you are...
-I think the boys like the hamster.
Right, we'll leave you two to get settled in.
Ade and Dayo have gone missing.
-Run away, legged it.
We cannot find them anywhere.
Harry said he saw them packing a parcel of food.
Oh, no. This is a disaster.
There's someone from Immigration due right now.
OK, I'm ready.
Go Tee, modelling a cheeky little creation,
available to buy for the bargain price of £1,000.
And Carmen looking absolutely stunning in the piece de resistance.
And not forgetting the amazing Tracy Beaker herself.
-Yes, lady in the front row.
-Tracy, can you come back?
-The two new boys have gone missing.
-The Immigration officer is on his way over now.
Get in a cab, I'll give you the money.
-Just get here as quickly as you can.
-Right, I'm just leaving.
-I've got to go back to the Dumping Ground.
-But what about all the mess?
-I don't know.
-Listen, this is an emergency.
-I need you to babysit while I come back.
-What happened to Cam?
She's not here, she never was.
Oh, so you want me to cover your back.
Listen, this is the plan.
'I want you to call a cab,
'get it to meet you round the corner.
'Come to my flat,
'get the taxi to wait.
'You look after Carmen, Tee and Lily...'
..'while I take the taxi back to the Dumping Ground.'
Whoa, whoa, whoa, run that by me again.
'OK, so I call a cab,
'I meet it round the corner.
'I get to your flat,
'tell the taxi to wait.
I basically save your job and you give me, let's say 30 quid?
-Have we got a deal?
Have you joined the latest girl band?
Is that the boys back?
Oh, I like the new look, Tracy.
CYNDI LAUPER: # Oh, Mother, dear we're not the fortunate ones
# And girls, they wanna have fun....
Was this Beaker's idea?
Right. Well, I say I came along just in time.
Right, you sort out the pigsty, I'll go and make lunch.
-Whatever we do we can't make any more mess.
Cam's got this special relaxing oil in the bathroom.
And there's these, for peace and serenity.
"Rub in to absorb the stresses of the day."
We can turn the whole flat into a spa.
We could walk round in dressing gowns.
And be all calm and blissful.
Gus, I know you know something.
-What, at this time?
Just tell me where Ade and Dayo are and I'll let you carry on.
-I'm just going to have another check in the garden.
-Sapphire, is everything all right?
-Oh, yeah, yeah, the flat's tidy,
-the girls are chilling, and I'm doing lunch.
It's not exactly brain surgery, is it?
-Just have to keep control.
-Well, I'll be back as soon as I can, OK? Bye.
-What have you got?
-A chess board and chess pieces, an African animal,
-a cuddly toy and a doctor's kit.
-They're not here.
-What do you mean, they're not here?
-Gotcha! Where are they?
-Do you really think I'm that dumb?
-No, they're really gone.
They couldn't have understood the plan.
Don't tell me you've been keeping them up here.
We were saving them.
Locked in a dark attic after everything they've been through -
is that really the brightest idea?
-I'm totally relaxed.
Do you know what we're missing?
Mash the avocado until creamy.
-What are you doing?
Natural ingredients, so good for the skin.
This is the immigration officer and the social worker
-who are dealing with Ade and Dayo.
-Are they going to send them back?
-To where they came from.
No, of course not. No, they can stay in this country till they're 18.
Yes, and we've got a great foster family, so it's good.
That's fantastic. Why don't we go and see if we can find them.
Yes, good idea.
Would you...Would you like some coffee?
-Think, where would they hide?
-I don't know!
-Hey, hey, what's wrong?
-Carmen, what have you done? My eyes are burning.
-I haven't done nothing.
-You saw me chopping chillies on here!
-Chillies, are you joking?
Wait, where did they hide when the gunmen came?
In a rubbish dump.
There are kids in there.
You could have been killed.
It's OK, I'm here now. It's all right, you'll see. Don't cry.
We're not crying, it's because of the chillies.
-Look, don't blame me, I put the fire out.
Are you on some kind of mission to put all the kids into hospital?
I just can't believe you lied to me and Mike.
I was doing it for Lily.
It's totally irresponsible.
You left four children on their own.
You made me come back here.
When are you going to learn rules are there for a reason?
In any other family she'd be allowed mates over.
Look we've been through this.
I'm the only reason you fostered her and now you won't give me any say.
I know I shouldn't have done it. I'm really sorry.
I was just trying to be Lily's sister.
So does this mean we can't visit Lily again?
-Would you want to?
-It was really fun.
We could print cards - Beaker's Babysitting Service,
-if you want your kids blinded.
-And your house burnt down.
So, same time again next week?
Nice to meet you.
It's been nice knowing you.
Do you want Chimp?
