Welcome to Whoops, I Missed 2015!
There's all of this...
..and a fair bit of this.
There's a little of this...
And would you believe it? There's also this!
They've vlogged all year round to bring you the best of CBBC
and now they've picked their favourite shows from 2015.
It's Myles and Laura.
Oh, man, my favourite show of 2015?
That's a difficult choice!
Arthur, Nowhere Boys, My Life? I'm torn. The Next Step?
Not that torn.
Let's catch up with our big-haired brother and see
if he's actually made his mind up.
You love him, I love him and most importantly, I love him.
Christmas, New Year - you know what I start thinking
with all these festivities? Eating, family...
Not eating family, two separate things.
And what better way to celebrate that than me
talking about one of my favourite shows this year, Junior Bake Off?
It's linked to this time of year because they're eating, baking.
It's cooking, it's festive.
The highlight of the show for me is seeing people given challenges
and seeing how they face them
and the judges tell them exactly what they need to achieve that.
-Judges, what are you looking for?
-Nice round biscuits.
Light texture and a buttery flavour.
That sounds like something I can do perfect. Is that...? Is that OK?
That is an overwhelmingly buttery flavour.
Baking isn't always as easy as just making a cake -
there's lots of elements to get right.
It's understanding the right balance of cream, strawberries
-They've got quite a lot to think about.
Quite a lot to think about? There's three things to think about, really.
Cream, strawberry, shortcake...and cream? I've already said cream.
There is a lot to think about. Is this OK?
All that baking does have an effect on some people.
I'm a cake.
-What type of cake am I?
-What's...happening? Is he OK, cake?
-Ooh, Madeira cake?
-Mark, come on, don't do this. Not now.
-You are an upside-down cake.
-That's the one.
Re-watching Junior Bake Off over Christmas made me think
that as it's nearing New Year, they're all baking,
so maybe I'm not going to. I don't really want to ruin the day.
When it came to the final episode, I felt I'd been taken on a journey,
I'd seen people grow and rise, much like the cakes they were making.
They hadn't become cakes themselves,
but in the same way that cakes rise and become cakes,
they had become...bakers.
Not cakes. You don't become a cake if you win Junior Bake Off.
-That sounds scary.
-The winner of Junior Bake Off 2015 is...
Myles! Is it me? Happy New Year.
Go on, lad, you have a well-earned nap.
Time now to pass the torch to you.
It's the last of this year's 15 Second Fans! Part one.
Our favourite bit of CBBC 2015 was The Nowhere Boys!
We loved when Andy finally arrived home
from the other mysterious world.
We hope there is another series.
-My favourite part of CBBC was Hacker's Birthday Bash.
I loved seeing all the presenters and all the characters
and my favourite part was seeing the new presenter.
-My favourite CBBC moment 2015
was when The Next Step won nationals and went to internationals
and I hope there will be another series.
My favourite thing is Dick and Dom destroying a car,
because it's really fun, because they did it with a robot,
and I like everything else on it.
APPLAUSE Smashing work! Cracking job!
More from you lot later.
Now, we've been here since January, delivering the very best telly,
so here for your viewing pleasure
are some of the very best bits of CBBC 2015.
This is it, let's do it.
MUSIC: DNA by Little Mix
Tres, dos, uno, TO-MA-TO!
It just seems to be an endless supply of tomatoes!
It's such a mental battle.
I know this shark is going to do me no harm whatsoever.
My gut is screaming, "It's a shark! It's a shark! You're scared,"
and my head is going, "No, it's fine, it'll be fine, you're safe."
It's been a pleasure, it's been nice knowing you.
-Here we go.
-COUNTDOWN IN BACKGROUND
And roll A.
Being a princess is harder than it looks.
-Any tips on playing dress-up, Professor?
-Me? I haven't a clue.
-Never really been my thing.
-Oh, go on.
-We can really do with the help.
-It might even be fun.
-No! Get away from me! Arrrgh!
You do know who the new presenter is.
She is the star of Whoops, I Missed The Bus.
-I can see her!
-Make some noise for...
I've put myself in...
under a rocky overhang
so that my back's protected and nothing can come at me from behind.
I can't pretend I'm not scared.
Now her vision is back,
things are very different for Rosemary and Rodney.
She looked around, saw her daughter and kissed her on the face.
And, in all the years of Rosemary's blindness,
I had never seen her do anything like that before.
Very soon, both of them will be released back into the wild
to live the life they should be living.
# The little mermaid The youngest daughter
# They are merpeople They live under water
# Allowed to the surface Saves a man's life
# To be immortal She must be his wife
# Drinks a special potion Loses her tongue
# Is this a children's story? Sounds a bit wrong
# I think you'd better cut a long story short
# She has to kill the prince In two minds she's caught... #
Hello, Ian McKellen, hello.
As soon as he came through the door, I was just like...
I can scarcely believe that we fit all of that into one year.
Behind the camera, behind the laughter,
it turns out there's more laughter.
Here are the best bits from our behind the scenes.
CBBC Extra, we've been expecting you.
SHE LAUGHS FIENDISHLY
This is the tower which Hetty makes and on the TV it looks like
it's meant to be high up in the Foundling Hospital,
but actually, we're just in the school's drama room.
I am backstage in Blackpool for live Shout Out Saturday.
Over here, we've got a big truck
-that does something technical or something.
-Oi, you, Shannon!
This is no ordinary truck!
Basically, whenever we leave the studio and broadcast live,
we need one of these little beauties to come with us.
Thanks, Hacker and Jo. Rehearsals are over!
Rehearsals?! Are you having a giraffe?!
My name is Chris Johnson and despite my busy schedule,
I've been hand-picked by the big, big cheese
to interview some of the biggest CBBC stars of all time.
Please give me the CBBC Extra behind the scenes for the 30th anniversary!
I've been washing my hair in washing-up liquid
for the past fortnight! I need this!
Building a den?! How hard can that be?!
I've got my very own dream den plans.
And I'm not afraid to use 'em!
Now, where are the Dengineers to help me?
you want to look at the pointing on this tree. Looks a bit wonky.
So this is the secret revolving door that's in the library
and in the show, it actually leads
to a secret room with loads of creepy passages,
but in reality, it actually leads to the monitor room
where the crew can hang out and watch what gets filmed in here.
When we have a poltergeist attack,
somebody sits down in the corner here with this fishing wire
and are you ready? This is the poltergeist.
Inside your eyes, you have the retina at the back
and then the iris at the front, which is the coloured bit.
Unlike in humans, zombies' irises don't have any colour at all.
Xand, how are you feeling?
To be honest, I'm feeling a bit peckish.
Well, that's not surprising because, of course,
the final stage of becoming a zombie
is an overwhelming desire to eat...human...flesh!
Now, we here at Whoops spend our whole year sifting through CBBC
to find the juiciest golden nuggets for your viewing pleasure,
so without further ado, allow us to reveal our top five moments of 2015!
At number five, it's a dream come true for Alex,
the Appsolute Genius behind the highly addictive game
Escargot Escape Artistes.
-Hello, are you Alex?
-We're Dick and Dom.
-Did you enter our Appsolute Genius competition?
-Is this your entry?
-Yes, that is.
-Alex, we had just under 3,000 entries into the competition.
-Yeah, I know, it's a lot, isn't it?
-You're the winner!
-You're the winner!
-How do you feel?
-Very excited, yeah.
In at number four on our list is a tough one to watch,
Harvey makes an interview boo-boo on Friday Download
when one of his questions to Little Mix gets Jesy rather upset.
Do you have his and hers hats?
Oh, come on, Harvey.
-Why, have you got a problem with me wearing hats?
-No, I like your hats.
-I've got my own style.
I don't just copy my boyfriend.
-No, I said I liked your hats.
-Oh, I'm not doing this, guys.
You know what, that's really harsh of you.
-What just happened?
-But fear not, it was only a prank!
-How'd you like that, Harvey!
Just a "Little Mix"-up!
At number three is a terrifying fling into the air with The Dare Devil.
Launch those baked goods!
Oh, my goodness!
Oh, there's cake flying everywhere!
That's it, look out below!
Oh, my goodness, it's a whole layer of sponge crashing to the ground.
That's the best thing I've ever seen.
Excellent choices, I'm sure you'd agree.
But while we build suspense and that for the top two moments,
it's Laura with her pick for the very best of 2015.
What's my top show of 2015? I'll give you a hint.
It's Absolute Genius Super Tech With Dick & Dom.
On this show, we look at how technology
has helped us become superhuman.
OK, this is a really bad hint, thinking about it.
It was supposed to be techy, you know...with explosions.
Just got to work on that, so it looks as good as in the show.
This robot is genius!
In this episode, we found out how a robot tortoise with sensors
started modern-day robotics.
How artificially intelligent machines can be programmed to learn.
And how in the near future, robots could be serving us our drinks.
I'd like to point out, it's not just the explosions that make it
the CBBC show of the year for me.
I mean, when else are you able to go all round the world
to see the coolest, most up-to-date technology?
-When you save up. >
-Yes, but I didn't mean that.
-When you win a competition. >
But a much easier way is to stay home
and watch in the safety of my own bedroom.
Yep, glad that's not me doing that.
-One foot there?
MUSIC: Back To The Future Theme
Wow! Wa...! Oi!
Or... Wait, that looks like fun, actually.
I also love the way the show gives you a sneak peak into the future.
I mean, come on, household robots!
Asimo is now able to open a bottle and pour coffee.
Milk and two sugars, please, Asimo.
-I'm now driving that...
'We have never played with anything like this before.'
-The car is just accelerating itself.
I just hope it doesn't hit the building!
And machines that make unlimited cupcakes.
Do we have a clip for that?
I might have made it up, but I can wish, right?
Don't tell me you haven't ever watched Eve
and wondered whether robots will really walk amongst us one day.
This is how I'd imagine they'd be. Wait, there's something missing.
This is definitely my idea of a technological future and behold!
Right, can we keep the explosions away from the cupcake, please?
-Priorities! Respect the cake!
I could really do with that machine
that made unlimited cupcakes right now.
She's a right Christmas cracker
and do you know who else is a festive treat?
You! And you! You too!
Yep, check out our very last 2015 Second Fans!
Did you see what I did there?
That's a little... A little New Year humour!
My favourite CBBC moment of the year was Hacker's Birthday Bash.
It was awesome seeing all the old clips,
but the best bit was
when he announced Lauren as the new presenter.
She's so funny and cool!
-My favourite thing about CBBC 2015 -
a new series of Nowhere Boys.
It's action-packed, it's thrilling
and I can't believe Lauren's left Whoops, I Missed The Bus.
At least Lauren is in the Office now.
My favourite moment of CBBC was in The Next Step, when they did
the two-to-seven-person dance blindfolded, cos it was awesome.
My favourite part of CBBC this year
would have to be when Eldon completed his task of 30 pirouettes
and he finally got to date Thalia from The Next Step.
See you in the new year!
APPLAUSE How do you get involved?
Just film a 15 second video
of yourself talking about
your favourite CBBC show and send it
in via the Whoops web page.
Out in the real world, there were some spectacular events
and wonderful achievements
and CBBC's finest reporters were there to document it all.
Here are some of the highlights.
We started the year off with the glitz and glamour
of the Brit Awards and Leah was there for it all.
So all the big stars have graced the red carpet.
Who could forget that moment when Madonna fell backwards on stage?
Here's re-enactment, courtesy of Hacker.
Spring hadn't quite sprung in March
when darkness fell during the solar eclipse.
Millions watched all over the world,
waiting for the moment when it got cooler and darker.
One Direction fans from all over the world
were in shock as Zayn quit the band.
The band has confirmed that Zayn has left the group after five years.
As One Direction were a man down, the royal family were a girl up
with the arrival of Kate and William's baby.
-I'm live outside the Houses of Parliament in London
on the morning after the UK have voted
for who they want to run the country.
In fact, May was a very busy month, as just a few days later,
the country had a tough decision to make.
David Cameron has just returned from a meeting with the Queen.
That means he carries on being the Prime Minister.
All eyes were on Austria a few weeks later
as it was time for Eurovision.
The 60th one, would you believe?
# To go sing it like a hummingbird... #
It was Sweden's time to shine once more,
as Mans Zelmerlow picked up the trophy for his country.
It wasn't the best of nights for the UK, though.
We finished third from the bottom. Ouch.
One of the Home Nations redeemed themselves in July
as the England women's football team finished third in the World Cup!
I just want to say thank you to Queen Elizabeth for being our queen.
On 9th September, Her Majesty the Queen
became the longest-reigning monarch in British history,
serving 23,226 days.
Impressive! Later in the month, scientists discovered water on Mars!
This is the first real good evidence of liquid water
and it's liquid water that's essential for life.
Chocolate, puff pastry and meringue.
-October was all about the cake
as the Great British Bake Off returned with over 13 million people
tuning in to watch Nadiya win the final.
And not forgetting our own Junior Bake Off,
which followed later in the year.
Speaking of winners, in rugby league, England beat New Zealand
to win the 2015 international series,
but it was the haka that really stole the show.
# Hey, Hackerena! #
No, not him. PLAYERS CHANT HAKA
Schools across the Western Isles
and Shetland in Scotland will be closed today as Storm Abigail hits.
For the first time in British history,
the UK and the Irish weather service decided to officially name storms.
-# Hello... #
-Hello, it's Dodge.
# It's me... #
Oh, it's Adele. Hi, Adele, how are ya?
Adele stormed back to action in November with her third studio album,
which broke the record for the most amount of sales in its first week.
Our very own Team GB smashed their way to victory
in the tennis Davis Cup.
-Five! Four! Three!
And finally, we ended the year on a high, literally,
as astronaut Tim Peake became the first Briton to blast 400km
to the International Space Station.
Bravo, sir, we salute you.
That, my chums, is the year that was 2015.
Sterling work, there, team. Excellent stuff.
Such professionalism, alas, doesn't always happen here at CBBC.
Sometimes, things go brilliantly, hilariously wrong.
Take a look at some of our best worst bits.
He would go on to be the worldwide song-writing phenom...
There's definitely rats or some sort of animal crawling around this den.
If you listen very carefully, you'll hear it.
-HE BREAKS WIND
Guys, I think...
-HE BURSTS OUT LAUGHING
-All right, but I'm...
-PHONE RINGS, SHE SIGHS
Phone. Phone, phone, phone.
-You all right there?
-Put it down.
-Ooh, I've knocked me cup down.
MUSIC: Sax by Fleur East
And this is where we keep...
CALF BREAKS WIND, LAUGHTER
What are the other ones?
I win! What's that one down there?
A tinsel trout!
SPEECH DROWNED OUT BY MUSIC
Sorry! She's making me laugh.
SHE STUMBLES OVER WORDS
Hello, Bella, Rachel.
-Mourinho is back, but field..fa...
Just one more?
Sometimes it's over hee-ar, sometimes it's down hee-ar.
On the plus side,
the weather always looks amazing in Mossity...Bottom Farm.
Uh, Mossy... Mossy Bottom Farm.
Mossy Bottom Farm, Mossy Bottom Farm, Mossy Bottom...
On the plus side, the weather always looks amazing down that farm.
Well done team, kind of,
especially the bit where you got it all wrong. Comedy gold, that.
Anyhoo, our countdown continues.
Here are the top two CBBC moments
as chosen by...ME!
Our number two best moment on the list
is the whole of The Next Step!
Things are changing.
The team can survive without you.
You're making an impossible situation even more impossible.
# Oh, I just can't complain
# I see the rain and watch my problems getting washed away... #
So, tell me all about nationals.
It was spectacular.
Like nothing you've ever seen.
# All I need is just a little
# All I need is just a little bit of oxygen... #
This might be how you guys do things at elite,
but this is not what we do at The Next Step.
We actually work as a team.
# All I need is just a little bit of oxyge-e-e-en. #
-The Next Step!
And finally, in at number one,
a spectacular journey that kicked off 2015
as Blue Peter's marvel Lindsey traverses the Pennine Alps.
This is hands down one of Blue Peter's
most impressive challenges ever.
Three, two, one...
STARTER GUN FIRES, COMPETITORS CHEER
'We have three hours to make it to the first checkpoint
'at Schonbiel and with 15 minutes to spare, we've made it.'
'At the point where my body is telling me to go to sleep,
'we're about to face the steepest and coldest climb of the race.'
I really am now tired. It just feels never-ending.
'We've been going uphill now for over five hours.
'The prospect of skiing downhill in the dark
'with tired legs is petrifying.'
Remember, if anyone falls, you just shout, OK?
'This is my view.'
That is really hard.
'With eight hours of racing ahead,
'I'm just not sure I can finish this.'
But finish she did, like a true Blue Peter hero.
-'Waiting for me on the finish line are my mum and dad.'
-It's just unbelievable.
What I've just done has been the hardest thing I've ever done,
but also the most satisfying and I'm really proud of myself for doing it,
even though I thought it was impossible.
Well done, Linds, you did us proud!
It's been a rollercoaster of emotion, I tells ye,
but what's in store for 2016?
We might never know.
If it weren't for these exclusive sneak peaks! Get a load of these!
It was a dark and stormy night,
when the lady of the house heard footsteps.
MUSIC: Rather Be by Clean Bandit
Your time starts now.
JAUNTY PIANO MUSIC
"I used to be a teacher and I'm miserable all the time!"
Did you build that?
-This is all wrong. >
The other spider bots did.
I'm not an agent.
I'm your mum.
Rowena Spike and Lizzy Drewitt from Ofsted.
It's inspection day.
We've got our producer up there who's on the lookout... Let's move!
-What can you hear? What can you hear?
-They're over the bridge.
Yeah, they're over the other side, coast is clear.
-There is lava on the nibbles!
ALARM BLARES, LOUD MUSIC PLAYS
MUSIC STOPS, SHE EXHALES
Yeah, this is totally sick.
Colin's onboard speedometer
shows he's less than 10mph short of the target.
Did you know that your belly button used to be your mouth and your bum?
Are you ready to see if you can take the next step?
MUSIC: The Island by Pendulum
Hi, I'm Jamie, I'm 14 and I'm off to Greenland.
My dad has asked me to join him
for a once-in-a-lifetime Arctic adventure.
-Just being hit by ice and snow.
# Hey, there, all you Next Step fans on...CBBC!
# Something's coming round the bend on...CBBC! #
How are you feeling about the song today?
If I'm honest, I'm really nervous.
I'm up against Amaria and Real
and they are two of my biggest competitions.
I don't sing these kind of songs and I'm just so nervous.
They have this whole media centre with all kinds of editing software,
so I can do things like this.
My brother annoys me so incredibly much,
but he's always got my back.
When you argue, I always get away with it,
because I'm the youngest, whereas the oldest always gets told off.
Oh, "Warning - use sparingly."
-In the bathroom!
It's the first day of a new term and the teachers and pupils
of Dockbridge High School can't wait to get started.
-I don't want to go back!
-Morning, Emily, it's great to be back, isn't it?
HE WAILS LOUDLY
How cool does 2016 look?
So much to look forward to,
but if you've missed any of your favourite shows over Christmas,
you can catch up on the CBBC iPlayer. So from me, it's Happy New Year!
And whatever you do, DON'T MISS THAT BUS!
