Hi, I'm Amelia. And I'm Imogen.
We're 12 years old,
and, if you haven't guessed...
BOTH: ..we're identical twins!
This summer, we're going to crack Wimbledon.
But there's just ONE small problem. We've tried playing tennis...
Sorry! ..and failed.
We got shouted at too much as umpires. Out!
Are you kidding me?
And being ball girls was too much hard work.
So, we need to find something we can do...
Oh, my God!
..to turn Wimbledon... Salsa! BOTH: ..into Twinbledon.
I'm going to give Coco a really funny hairstyle. OK.
There you go!
Does Lily look good, Imogen? Yeah, I think she looks great.
If only guinea pig hairstyling was at Wimbledon,
we would DEFINITELY qualify.
Well, I would qualify anyway. No, I would!
I can't believe we still haven't found anything. We HAVE to be there!
Girls, I've just been chopping up some strawberries.
Do you think the guinea pigs would like some?
BOTH: Strawberries and cream! Let's go.
If we're going to have to do strawberries and cream
at Wimbledon, then we're going to have to know how to make it.
Yeah, so why don't we get one of the judges from
Junior Bake Off, Graham Hornigold?
Yeah, that sounds great!
We've come to London to meet Graham,
one of the best pastry chefs in the world.
Hi! Hi! Hi.
Let's go to my kitchen, um, get some aprons on,
give ourselves a wash up and see what we can do. Yeah!
We'll take the chefs' entrance, yeah? Let's go.
Graham was a judge on Junior Bake Off,
and one thing he WON'T be making is a soggy bottom.
A really nice pizza, well thought out, well done.
So, Graham, we need to make strawberries
and cream at Wimbledon, but we don't know how to do it.
Can you help us? Course I can.
Graham isn't going to set us a plain old strawberries
and cream, though.
HE wants us to make something FAR more fancy.
We've got some strawberry sauce,
we've got some strawberry pastry cream.
We have a choux bun, some strawberries, some meringue,
and we're going to put that into that,
and then we're going to make this, Choux a la Creme.
VOICEOVER: Even its name is complicated!
Showing us how it's done, he adds the strawberries,
and all the other ingredients, to the choux bun,
and then decorates it with meringue, and even rose petals!
This is WAY too posh for us.
How are we going to make this?
Well, what we can do, is, I'll give you two minutes, to, er,
recreate this. No! Not two minutes!
I think I'm going to fail at this.
Well, that means I'm going to win.
VOICEOVER: Competition! Our favourite thing.
And your time starts...
VOICEOVER: Two minutes is NOTHING.
If we can make this, surely we can make simple strawberries and cream.
Why don't you dress some strawberries for your sister
at the same time? You didn't do any for me! That's cheating!
VOICEOVER: Snooze, you lose, Amelia!
VOICEOVER: Only 40 seconds left.
OK, 30 seconds. No! No! Allez, allez! Do you want me to count down?
Would it ease the pressure? No. No, that would just make it even worse.
Customers waiting! Well, they can wait!
VOICEOVER: We're never going to do it!
Where's the sorbet? I'm coming here, I'm here,
I'm just going to show you, look!
Imogen! No, stop, you're wrecking it!
VOICEOVER: Phew! Now it's judgment time.
Here's one I did earlier. Oh, no. Mmm. They're not bad. Weight wise?
Bit light, but don't worry. It's all in the taste. Let's try them...
VOICEOVER: Yes! Our favourite bit.
..and then we can decide who's the, who's got the best dish.
VOICEOVER: Mine is good, but a BIT empty!
Can I have a try?
VOICEOVER: Mine is really good - even IMOGEN agrees!
Hers is better.
Well, then, that means,
congratulations, Amelia. You're the winner!
Well, you guys were very good at this, but, honestly,
if you want to do this for 3,000 people, we're going
to need to look at, er, a big production kitchen, and see,
see how it really works, how you're going to get that number out.
But, can we just finish eating these, please?
Graham told us to get some practice, so we're heading to the kitchen,
to where they prepare the 140,000 strawberry portions for Wimbledon.
How many strawberries is that? Um, 140 divided by 32, carry the 1...
..divide by 7... I dunno, but it's a lot!
Let's go and see if we can find out more.
We've come to meet Charlie, the head of Wimbledon Strawberries,
and Gary, one his chefs.
We want to do strawberries and cream at Wimbledon, but how do we do it?
You need to learn how to hull the strawberries.
What does hulling mean? Can you show us?
Take one of the strawberries, go in the top,
and then just twist the strawberry around,
and that is the perfect strawberry to go with cream.
VOICEOVER: Ah, so hulling means taking the stalks out. Easy!
How many of these do you do every day? Thousands and thousands.
I go home smelling of strawberries!
VOICEOVER: We've each been given a punnet of strawberries,
and Charlie wants to see how quickly we can hull them.
This is the man you need to impress!
I'm going to come back and check your work,
and if it's good enough, you can be at Wimbledon.
Wow! Ready? Go!
VOICEOVER: This is harder than it looks!
I'm going to do more than you.
No, I'm going to do more than you.
VOICEOVER: Actually, at this rate,
maybe NEITHER of us will have done that many!
We're never going to be able to keep up with this. I've got an idea!
If we start pulling them off really quickly,
we'll get them done, so, squish, squish, squish!
Maybe we can make smoothies instead?
At least they taste good.
VOICEOVER: Quick! He's coming back.
Can we have a look, see how you've done? Yes.
Now, that doesn't look very hulled, does it? Look what I've got.
More squashed than hulled. What do you think, Gary?
That one's been nibbled. Nibbled?! Nibbled.
You've been eating the stock?
I thinks someone else came in, tried to eat it.
So, can we do this at Wimbledon, then?
I'd like to say yes, girls, but I'm afraid the answer is no.
Why don't you have a go at selling them instead? OK.
If we want to sell strawberries and cream at Wimbledon, we
have to prove we can do it here, at Surbiton.
VOICEOVER: And look who else is here!
It's Max and Harvey. I love their YouTube channel! Me too!
Do you think they'll help us with our challenge? I dunno.
Let's ask them! Let's go!
Max and Harvey are 14-year-old singing superstar twins.
They have MILLIONS of fans worldwide.
Hey, Max and Harvey, fancy seeing you here!
Hey guys, what's going on?
We're trying to get into Wimbledon,
and we're trying to do it by selling strawberries and cream.
Strawberries and cream? I love strawberries and cream!
Great. Maybe you could help us with our challenge.
Before we get stuck in, can we just have a song? Yeah, we can do.
BOTH: # Look through my mind, can you see us both dancing in the rain,
# Nobody's stopping us from looking insane
# Pranks will happen, as the neighbours complain
# Making memories that no-one can ever change
# Sharing ice cream... laughing in my arms so I know you feel the same
# One more day in love. #
Woo! There you go.
OK. So, what's the challenge?
VOICEOVER: We have to see who serves the most people, without
letting our competiveness get in the way.
It's Max and Imogen versus Harvey and Amelia.
My team's going to win. Er, no, my team's going to win.
No, we're going to win. No, we're going to win!
No, we are the... ALWAYS win. No, no...
VOICEOVER: Oh, no - it looks like they are as bad as us!
Twins! OK, let's go.
Here are the strawberries!
Here's the cream!
And here's some chocolate.
OK. Let's go.
Got free strawberries and cream!
Come to us, ours are the best ones.
VOICEOVER: Let's hope we can keep up.
Strawberries and cream!
Do you want strawberries and chocolate?
Would you like chocolate? She stole our bowls! Cream?
There's a bowl. There we go, thank you!
VOICEOVER: First few customers are happy,
but it looks like Max will say anything to win.
Don't take it from them, they cough in them. No, we don't.
VOICEOVER: What a fibber!
So, you want strawberries, cream and chocolate? Yep.
Thank you very much.
VOICEOVER: So many people want our strawberries,
we can barely keep up!
And double the twins means double the confusion.
This is so messy!
Oh, I can't remember who I put my order in with!
You all look the same!
I don't think we've brought enough ingredients.
We're out of cream. Strawberries and cream!
We've got no cream. WHAT? Ahh!
We need more cream!
VOICEOVER: It's chaos.
We've nearly run out of strawberries,
so it's down to the last bowl.
Oh, my God!
No. Oh, my God!
VOICEOVER: There's only one way out of this.
The losers have to clean it up, so..
Shall we just run, as well?
VOICEOVER: Wimbledon feels further away than ever now.
Come on, girls, we need to go.
Hold on, Dad. That was a total disaster.
I thought Max and Harvey might have helped us,
but they were even MORE competitive than us!
Yeah, it's so annoying when people are competitive, isn't it?
BOTH: Anyway... Girls, we need to go.
Hold on, Dad! Were running out of time.
Were never going to get into Wimbledon now.
We'll have to find a job that were already good at,
so it doesn't take too much hard work. Like what?
Girls, are you ready to go yet? All you ever do is talk, talk, talk.
BOTH: Talking is the answer!
Thanks, Dad. We can go now.
Happy to help!
Strawberries and cream the twins can eat, but will they be good enough at selling it to thousands of hungry spectators at Wimbledon? Luckily for Amelia and Imogen they have top chef Graham Hornigold to show them how to plate up a dish, and with their favourite YouTube stars, Max and Harvey, helping them sell, they are surely going to work their way into Wimbledon - aren't they?
