CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:01:070:01:10

Good evening! Hello!

0:01:100:01:13

Good evening, ladies and gentlemen,

0:01:150:01:17

and welcome to my Big Christmas Show!

0:01:170:01:21

Hey-hey!

0:01:210:01:24

Oh, yes, tonight, ladies and gentlemen,

0:01:240:01:29

there will be big Christmas stars...

0:01:290:01:32

AUDIENCE WHOOPS ..big Christmas laughs...

0:01:320:01:35

AUDIENCE CHEERS ..and big Christmas games!

0:01:350:01:38

AUDIENCE OOHS

0:01:380:01:41

Christmas Eve - what a fantastic, exciting time.

0:01:410:01:45

It's probably the most exciting time, isn't it, Christmas Eve?

0:01:450:01:48

It's all about to happen. It's all about to happen.

0:01:480:01:52

One more sleep. One more sleep till Christmas.

0:01:520:01:56

Have you got children? Applaud if you've got children.

0:01:560:01:59

APPLAUSE

0:01:590:02:02

They'll be so excited tonight, won't they? One more sleep.

0:02:020:02:05

"Get some sleep." You're desperate to get them to sleep.

0:02:050:02:07

"Just get to sleep. Big day tomorrow.

0:02:070:02:09

"Big day. Get some sleep."

0:02:090:02:11

Once, my children woke up, both of them -

0:02:110:02:14

they must have woken each other up -

0:02:140:02:16

and came down for Christmas before I'd even gone to sleep.

0:02:160:02:19

It was still Christmas Eve. They went, "It's Christmas!"

0:02:190:02:23

I was like, "No, it isn't. It's 10.15. Go back to bed!"

0:02:230:02:26

My wife, of course, was asleep because she's tired.

0:02:260:02:30

She works hard. She's a mother and that is very, very difficult,

0:02:300:02:34

especially at Christmas.

0:02:340:02:36

She tends to fall asleep before me because I'm not tired.

0:02:360:02:38

I'm up watching the telly.

0:02:380:02:40

I don't know what goes on in your relationships.

0:02:400:02:42

Sometimes you sleep at the same time which is very rare.

0:02:420:02:44

There tends to be some cuddling.

0:02:440:02:46

It's how it's supposed to be, isn't it? Cuddling. "Love you."

0:02:460:02:48

Have to reassure there's love still in the marriage. "I love you."

0:02:480:02:52

You're very much cuddling each other but your arm is trapped.

0:02:520:02:55

You realise you can't sleep like that.

0:02:550:02:56

There comes a time when you have to go, "As much as I love you,

0:02:560:02:59

"darling, I need to remove my arm. It's trapped. Sorry."

0:02:590:03:03

You have to roll away to a sleeping position

0:03:030:03:06

which, really, is as far apart from each other as it's possible to get.

0:03:060:03:10

"I love you, but now it is time for me to roll away for sleep."

0:03:100:03:14

To be honest, she normally initiates the roll away.

0:03:140:03:17

"OK, that's enough. Go on, off you go, darling. I'm tired.

0:03:170:03:21

"Over to your side now. Over to your side."

0:03:210:03:24

As you get quite old, you actually roll away

0:03:240:03:26

and then you go down the corridor to your new room.

0:03:260:03:29

That is a depressing development in the relationship.

0:03:300:03:34

APPLAUSE

0:03:340:03:37

She tends to go to sleep before me and I watch the telly,

0:03:370:03:40

so I'm an observer of a sleeping person, my wife,

0:03:400:03:43

and I have to say it's very odd how we always start off the night

0:03:430:03:46

in the perfect sleeping position, don't we?

0:03:460:03:48

We always start as we hope to go on. Head on the pillow, duvet comes in.

0:03:480:03:52

It's the perfect sleeping position

0:03:520:03:54

cos during the night your body goes into every position

0:03:540:03:56

you can get actually get it in, but you don't start like that.

0:03:560:04:00

You don't go, "Good night, darling" and immediately go...

0:04:000:04:03

You start perfectly. I watch, I see how the perfect position dismantles

0:04:030:04:07

cos I'm watching the telly. My wife says good night.

0:04:070:04:09

She goes to sleep in a perfect position.

0:04:090:04:11

Within moments, the leg comes down here.

0:04:110:04:14

Mouth sort of flops open.

0:04:150:04:19

The arm's up here.

0:04:190:04:22

Breathing on me.

0:04:220:04:23

Even though I've seen her brushing her teeth 10-15 minutes earlier,

0:04:230:04:26

her breath is already slightly on the turn.

0:04:260:04:28

I'm wedging pillows in front of her face.

0:04:300:04:33

Sometimes at the beginning, she does that weird jolting thing

0:04:330:04:35

that nobody quite knows what it is.

0:04:350:04:38

She'll suddenly just wake herself up.

0:04:380:04:40

"Oh! Oh!

0:04:400:04:41

"Michael!"

0:04:430:04:44

"Are you all right, darling?"

0:04:440:04:45

"Oh, that was so weird. Oh!

0:04:450:04:47

"I thought I was falling. I thought I was falling."

0:04:470:04:50

"Well, you're not falling, darling.

0:04:500:04:52

"If anything, you're too much on my side.

0:04:520:04:53

"You should be closer to the wall. Go back to sleep, darling."

0:04:530:04:56

"I love you." And off she goes into a perfect position, but then,

0:04:560:04:59

within moments, she drops off, the leg comes back out...

0:04:590:05:02

And mumbling, as well. I don't know who she's talking to.

0:05:040:05:07

She mumbles in her sleep. It's not a language, not English.

0:05:070:05:09

HE MUMBLES

0:05:090:05:12

She argues with herself in tongues.

0:05:120:05:14

"I don't... Wha-wha!?

0:05:140:05:15

"You come at me with that? Wha?"

0:05:150:05:17

HE MUMBLES "Really?!"

0:05:170:05:21

Sometimes her eyes pop open in my face.

0:05:210:05:24

It's like a horror movie. I look over and she's like...

0:05:240:05:27

"Are you awake, darling?"

0:05:300:05:32

"Wha? Wha?" HE MUMBLES

0:05:320:05:37

The only time she smiles sweetly, and I regret saying this,

0:05:390:05:42

is when the night farts kick in.

0:05:420:05:44

Now look, can I say that my wife is a very prim and proper person

0:05:440:05:48

and she hasn't actually farted in the daytime

0:05:480:05:51

in the 17 years we've been together,

0:05:510:05:54

and it's a record we're both very proud of.

0:05:540:05:57

But I'm here to tell you, unfortunately,

0:05:570:05:59

her night record is not nearly as strong.

0:05:590:06:02

It's biology. They HAVE to pop out.

0:06:030:06:06

It tends to be when I'm watching telly

0:06:060:06:08

and she reacts to them, as well.

0:06:080:06:09

HE MUMBLES, FARTS

0:06:090:06:11

"Oh!"

0:06:110:06:12

HE FARTS, CHUCKLES

0:06:140:06:17

I don't know what she'd eaten the other night,

0:06:230:06:26

but it was like a fireworks display.

0:06:260:06:28

It sort of built to a finale.

0:06:280:06:31

She was like... FARTS

0:06:310:06:33

"Oh!"

0:06:330:06:35

RAPID FARTS

0:06:350:06:38

Then one big one and she woke herself up! "Oh!

0:06:400:06:43

"What was that, Michael? There was a bang!"

0:06:430:06:46

"Darling, go back to sleep. Everything's fine."

0:06:460:06:48

"Seriously, what was that? Oh, my God, why is the window open?

0:06:480:06:52

"What's been going on here?

0:06:520:06:53

"What time is it? It was a bang.

0:06:550:06:56

"I heard a bang, Michael. Why is the lamp on the floor?

0:06:560:06:59

"Why are you holding the Febreze? What's been going on?"

0:07:010:07:04

APPLAUSE

0:07:060:07:08

Of course, I've got to get my wife something nice.

0:07:110:07:14

Lot of husbands in here. "What we going to get our wives?"

0:07:140:07:18

I've been with my wife 17 years.

0:07:180:07:20

No surprises she's not interested any more.

0:07:200:07:22

I say to her, "Have you got any hints for Christmas? Any hints?"

0:07:220:07:25

She gives me very, very specific instructions.

0:07:250:07:28

"There are these shoes... Write it down. ..these shoes I like.

0:07:280:07:32

"It's called ballet pump, OK? Write it down. It's a ballet pump."

0:07:320:07:35

"What's that?"

0:07:350:07:36

"Doesn't matter. Write it down. It's a dusty pink."

0:07:360:07:39

"You don't want a normal pink?"

0:07:390:07:40

"Just write it down. I'll write down the name of the shop.

0:07:400:07:43

"This is the name of the shop, OK?

0:07:430:07:45

"There's a woman there. It's in Marylebone. Write it down!

0:07:450:07:48

"Ask for Helen. I've actually put it aside. It's paid for.

0:07:480:07:53

"All you have to do, Michael... Look at me. ..is pick it up, OK?"

0:07:530:07:57

Christmas Day is just her opening presents going, "Correct.

0:07:570:08:02

"Correct." APPLAUSE

0:08:020:08:05

No more surprises.

0:08:050:08:07

Ladies and gentlemen,

0:08:090:08:10

who would like to play Christmas Celebrity Send To All?

0:08:100:08:14

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:08:140:08:16

So, this is, of course, where I take a celebrity's mobile phone

0:08:190:08:22

and send a text of my choosing to their contacts and see what

0:08:220:08:25

hilarious replies they get at the end of the show,

0:08:250:08:27

so let's find out who's in our Christmas Send To All box.

0:08:270:08:31

Well, who would you rather have at Christmas than the divine...

0:08:310:08:38

It's Aled Jones!

0:08:380:08:40

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:08:400:08:44

Can it be more Christmassy?

0:08:440:08:47

-No!

-How are you, Aled?

-I'm good. How are you?

-So nice to see you.

0:08:470:08:50

-Really nice... Merry Christmas.

-Merry Christmas to you, Aled.

0:08:500:08:53

-You ARE Christmas.

-Thanks.

-Have you got a Christmas album at Christmas?

0:08:530:08:57

Of course I have, with my younger self.

0:08:570:09:00

-With your younger self?

-Yeah.

0:09:000:09:01

A 12-year-old Aled Jones singing with a 45-year-old Aled Jones.

0:09:010:09:04

-How very exciting.

-Yeah.

-Who are you here with tonight?

0:09:040:09:07

Some fella who's been following me around since I was 14.

0:09:070:09:10

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:09:100:09:12

Ladies and gentlemen, it's the Snowman!

0:09:120:09:14

CHEERING

0:09:140:09:16

Oh, Aled, I can't imagine a more Christmassy scene

0:09:160:09:21

than looking at you in the box with the Snowman.

0:09:210:09:25

Is there any way we can make it more Christmassy in there?

0:09:250:09:28

-Yay!

-CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:09:280:09:32

MUSIC: Walking In The Air by Aled Jones

0:09:320:09:35

-SINGS FALSETTO

-# We're walking in the air

0:09:360:09:40

# We're floating in the moonlit sky. #

0:09:410:09:46

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE Yeah!

0:09:460:09:50

That's done it for me. That's tipped me over the edge.

0:09:500:09:54

I've got Christmasitis.

0:09:540:09:57

I've never been more Christmassy!

0:09:570:10:00

I can not thank you enough for being here covered in snow with the

0:10:000:10:05

-Snowman...

-I'd do anything for you.

-..and playing Send To All with me.

0:10:050:10:08

Aled, all I need to ask is for you to place your mobile phone

0:10:080:10:12

-into the Celebrity Send To All cushion.

-OK.

0:10:120:10:14

I wonder what music they've selected to get this down tonight?

0:10:140:10:19

MUSIC: Walking In The Air by Aled Jones

0:10:190:10:22

LAUGHTER

0:10:220:10:24

# We're floating in the moonlit sky. #

0:10:240:10:29

Yay! APPLAUSE

0:10:290:10:32

Oh, Aled, thank you so much.

0:10:320:10:35

I am now in possession of Aled Jones's HUGE mobile phone.

0:10:350:10:39

-You've got a big one.

-Thank you.

0:10:390:10:41

OK, so, I'm going to plug this phone in here.

0:10:430:10:47

Yeah! There you are.

0:10:470:10:49

WELSH ACCENT: 'It's Aled Jones' phone, innit?'

0:10:490:10:51

So, these are very lovely people. Who's on the front there?

0:10:530:10:57

That's my daughter Emilia and my son Lucas.

0:10:570:10:59

-Aw. Right, photos, is that OK?

-Oh, no.

0:10:590:11:03

Oh, this is a lovely Christmassy picture. Who's this little guy?

0:11:030:11:05

-That's my dog, Cubby.

-Cubby?

-Yeah.

-Hi, Cubs.

0:11:050:11:09

Erm... LAUGHTER

0:11:090:11:12

-You're an elf?

-Yeah, I like dressing up as an elf.

0:11:120:11:15

OK, this is an awkward seduction technique.

0:11:150:11:18

Mrs Jones in the shower while you're getting ready?

0:11:190:11:22

"You'll like this, love.

0:11:220:11:24

"Because it's a special night for us, I've taken my socks off!"

0:11:240:11:27

LAUGHTER

0:11:270:11:30

"Happy anniversary, darling."

0:11:300:11:32

OK, Aled, thank you so, so much for being here and giving me your phone.

0:11:330:11:37

It is time to put the text in, and it's a nice one.

0:11:370:11:40

-Now, Aled, you are an incredibly wholesome lovely person.

-Here we go.

0:11:400:11:44

-You are, though, aren't you?

-Not really. I'm just normal.

0:11:440:11:46

You're normal but you're Classic FM and you're a lovely man.

0:11:460:11:51

You're the perfect Christmas guest,

0:11:510:11:52

but you've got a little bit of a wild side.

0:11:520:11:56

At least that's how it's about to look.

0:11:560:11:59

So, the text I'm going to send from Aled's phone is,

0:11:590:12:03

"I may be having some kind of midlife crisis..."

0:12:030:12:09

Oh, no!

0:12:090:12:11

"..but I've decided to get a tattoo in the morning.

0:12:130:12:21

-"I'm thinking..."

-Oh, no!

0:12:240:12:28

"..either classic Welsh dragon...

0:12:280:12:31

"..Aled in Chinese..."

0:12:330:12:36

LAUGHTER

0:12:360:12:39

"..or the Snowman."

0:12:410:12:44

LAUGHTER AND APPLAUSE

0:12:450:12:48

"Need advice on any other ideas..."

0:12:480:12:54

Oh, no!

0:12:540:12:56

"..and where to put it."

0:12:560:12:58

LAUGHTER

0:12:580:13:01

-How would you sign a text, Aled?

-Just Al.

-With a kiss, I think.

0:13:010:13:05

Yeah, a kiss probably. Why am I telling you this?

0:13:050:13:08

You're about to ask everybody in your phone the following -

0:13:090:13:12

"I may be having some kind of midlife crisis,

0:13:120:13:15

"but I've decided to get a tattoo in the morning.

0:13:150:13:18

"I'm thinking either classic Welsh dragon,

0:13:180:13:20

"Aled in Chinese or the Snowman.

0:13:200:13:23

"Need advice on any other ideas and where to put it."

0:13:230:13:27

-Shall I send that to everybody in Aled Jones's phone?

-No!

0:13:270:13:30

-AUDIENCE:

-Yes!

0:13:300:13:31

A-a-a-a-a-a-nd that's gone, ladies and gentlemen!

0:13:310:13:35

-It's a fun one! It's fun.

-Yeah.

0:13:360:13:38

APPLAUSE

0:13:380:13:41

All right, we will be back later on to see what responses Aled gets,

0:13:410:13:45

but one more time, for Mr Christmas himself,

0:13:450:13:48

the adorable and wonderful, what a fantastic sport,

0:13:480:13:51

it's Aled Jones, ladies and gentlemen!

0:13:510:13:53

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE Thank you so much.

0:13:530:13:56

Time now for a very special performance

0:13:580:14:01

from two of the greatest voices to grace the stage.

0:14:010:14:04

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:17:220:17:27

Ladies and gentlemen, Michael Ball and Alfie Boe.

0:17:340:17:37

It's Boe and Ball.

0:17:370:17:40

Look at that. Absolutely sensational.

0:17:400:17:44

Listen, it's Christmas, guys.

0:17:440:17:46

It's Christmas Eve and I was just wondering if there was any chance

0:17:460:17:50

that we could try and sing something Christmassy,

0:17:500:17:53

because how often do you have three incredible voices on the same stage?

0:17:530:17:57

LAUGHTER

0:17:570:17:59

-Any chance, guys?

-Absolutely.

0:17:590:18:02

CHEERING

0:18:020:18:04

I've got something cued up.

0:18:040:18:05

It's one of my favourites, so let's see how it goes.

0:18:050:18:08

MUSIC: The Little Drummer Boy

0:18:100:18:13

-BOTH:

-# Come, they told me, pa-rum-pum-pum-pum

0:18:240:18:29

# Pa-pa-pum-pum

0:18:290:18:31

# Peace on earth

0:18:580:19:01

0:19:010:19:03

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:19:030:19:05

# Years from now

0:19:050:19:08

# Perhaps we'll see

0:19:080:19:10

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

# Pa-rum-pum-pum-pum. #

0:19:330:19:36

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:19:360:19:38

Guys? Ra-pa-pum, where have you gone?

0:19:420:19:45

Good luck with the new album, guys. Ra-pa-pum, goodbye!

0:19:500:19:53

One more time, what an absolute treat to have them here,

0:19:550:19:57

Ball and Boe!

0:19:570:19:59

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:19:590:20:02

Now it is time to find out who is going to be tonight's

0:20:020:20:05

Unexpected Christmas Star of the show!

0:20:050:20:09

APPLAUSE

0:20:090:20:13

So, tonight, we're not going to surprise one person.

0:20:130:20:17

We're going to surprise 21 people.

0:20:170:20:20

So, let me tell you about tonight's

0:20:220:20:25

Unexpected Christmas Stars of the show.

0:20:250:20:27

So, they are the Forth Valley Choir.

0:20:270:20:30

They've come all the way down from Scotland, and there they are.

0:20:300:20:33

They're all NHS nurses.

0:20:330:20:36

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:20:360:20:40

The choir think they are coming here tonight to audition for

0:20:400:20:43

a Christmas concert, but of course, that's not really why they're here.

0:20:430:20:47

As well as caring for people all day,

0:20:470:20:49

these hard-working nurses regularly raise money for local

0:20:490:20:52

charities and hospitals, but tonight is for them.

0:20:520:20:56

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:20:560:20:59

The nurses have been nominated by their boss Angela, who is here,

0:20:590:21:04

I believe, in the audience and I can chat with Angela now.

0:21:040:21:07

Angela, where are you? Hi, Ange.

0:21:070:21:08

I'm coming down, Ange. I'm coming down.

0:21:080:21:11

-Darling Angela, how are you?

-I'm very well, thank you.

0:21:130:21:15

-Lovely to meet you.

-And lovely to meet you.

0:21:150:21:18

So, you work at the Forth Valley?

0:21:180:21:19

Yeah, I'm the director of nursing in NHS Forth Valley,

0:21:190:21:23

which is the pretty bit in Scotland between Edinburgh and Glasgow.

0:21:230:21:26

SCOTTISH ACCENT: 'Oh, the pretty bit, eh? It's beautiful.

0:21:260:21:29

'I love the pretty bit! Little corridor of beauty.'

0:21:290:21:32

-It's lovely! Absolutely beautiful.

-Fabulous.

0:21:320:21:36

-Tell me about your girls. What are they like?

-They're incredible.

0:21:360:21:38

They came together to celebrate nursing and to do something

0:21:380:21:43

together to support one another,

0:21:430:21:44

to give something back to those that we care for and serve every day

0:21:440:21:48

-in Scotland.

-They're lovely, lovely people.

0:21:480:21:51

-Be good to them, Michael.

-What do you mean be good to them?!

0:21:510:21:54

-Please.

-What do you think I'm going to do to the nurses?!

0:21:540:21:58

What have you heard?

0:21:580:22:00

Just even speaking in that accent might be quite scary for us.

0:22:000:22:04

LAUGHTER AND APPLAUSE

0:22:040:22:07

SCOTTISH ACCENT: 'I cannae stop doing it. That's the problem, eh?'

0:22:080:22:12

-Thank you so much for helping us organise this.

-Thanks for having us.

0:22:120:22:15

I hope it's going to be a wonderful treat for them and for all of us.

0:22:150:22:18

A lovely Christmas surprise.

0:22:180:22:19

Ladies and gentlemen, let's hear it for Angela from the Forth Valley!

0:22:190:22:22

APPLAUSE Brilliant. Lovely to meet you.

0:22:220:22:25

OK, so, let me tell you about the plan tonight.

0:22:250:22:29

They think they are coming to an office of a leading events company

0:22:290:22:32

called Big Show Events right next door,

0:22:320:22:34

but, of course, that's all not real.

0:22:340:22:36

Let me show you what the shop front looked like before.

0:22:360:22:38

That's it earlier today and now it is the Big Show Events, yeah!

0:22:380:22:46

They think they're going there to audition to be a choir in

0:22:460:22:49

a Christmas production, but they have no idea what it is.

0:22:490:22:52

So, what's going to happen is

0:22:520:22:53

they're going to be asked to come round here.

0:22:530:22:55

It's going to have to be in two batches.

0:22:550:22:57

So, the first batch of nurses is going to come up,

0:22:570:22:59

about ten of them, and they're going to be told to audition.

0:22:590:23:02

They're going to be led down the side of the theatre,

0:23:020:23:05

but they don't know it's the theatre,

0:23:050:23:06

in through a corridor all the way on to this stage,

0:23:060:23:09

or nearly on to this stage, cos what we have is an enormous, fake lift.

0:23:090:23:14

So, the lift is going to be here. They're going to get into the lift.

0:23:140:23:18

The doors are going to close behind them,

0:23:180:23:20

and, yes, you guessed it, the doors at the other side open

0:23:200:23:23

and all of you will be on the other side

0:23:230:23:25

and it'll be a lift full of very surprised nurses.

0:23:250:23:30

All right, Ange?

0:23:300:23:32

APPLAUSE

0:23:320:23:34

I think we can actually go live to the Big Show Events company

0:23:340:23:39

next door and see what's going on.

0:23:390:23:41

Oh, my God, they're all there waiting for the event.

0:23:410:23:45

So, I can tell you that we have a gentleman called Richard

0:23:470:23:50

who's outside and he is going to pretend to be

0:23:500:23:55

a vocal coach and he's going to gather up the girls and have

0:23:550:23:58

a little bit of fun with them

0:23:580:24:00

because I can actually communicate with Richard from the stage.

0:24:000:24:03

So, let's send Richard in to gather up all the girls.

0:24:030:24:07

-Here comes Richard.

-Hello.

0:24:090:24:10

-Hello, everybody.

-I'm Richard. I'm a vocal coach.

0:24:100:24:13

Hello, I'm the vocal coach. Hello. Richard. Hello.

0:24:130:24:16

-Hello, girls.

-Hello, girls.

-ALL:

-Hi.

0:24:160:24:19

-Where are you all from?

-Where are you all from?

0:24:190:24:21

-ALL:

-Scotland.

0:24:210:24:22

Just before, I have all you nurses here...

0:24:220:24:24

While I've got you all here...

0:24:240:24:26

I'm sorry to say it's unprofessional.

0:24:260:24:27

..I'm sorry to say this is quite unprofessional...

0:24:270:24:29

..but I've got a little bit of a sore throat.

0:24:290:24:31

..I've got a sore throat.

0:24:310:24:33

-Can anyone feel my glands?

-Can someone feel my glands?

0:24:330:24:36

THEY LAUGH

0:24:360:24:38

Oh, here we go.

0:24:380:24:39

-Not bad.

-Not bad?

-Not bad.

-I'll take that.

0:24:420:24:45

OK, girls, let's start with some vocal exercises.

0:24:470:24:50

We're going to do some face massages now.

0:24:500:24:52

Just massage your face and open up your muscles.

0:24:520:24:55

-RICHARD REPEATS That's good.

-Lovely.

0:24:550:24:58

And if you could just go... HE SINGS A SCALE

0:24:580:25:02

-RICHARD SINGS A SCALE

-At the same time.

0:25:020:25:06

ALL SING A SCALE

0:25:060:25:10

-That's very, very good. That's excellent.

-That's excellent.

0:25:100:25:14

OK, you're all warmed up. What I'm going to do now...

0:25:140:25:17

-OK, thank you.

-..is I'm going to point to you...

0:25:170:25:20

Now I'm going to point to you...

0:25:200:25:22

..and I want you to do an impression,

0:25:220:25:24

verbally and physically, of the animal that I say.

0:25:240:25:28

HE REPEATS

0:25:280:25:30

-Just to warm up your vocal cords.

-Just to warm up your vocal cords.

0:25:300:25:33

So, pick someone randomly and just say "dog".

0:25:330:25:35

So, let's start with dog.

0:25:350:25:37

Woof-woof!

0:25:370:25:39

-OK, cat.

-Good. OK, cat.

0:25:400:25:43

Meow! Meow!

0:25:430:25:46

-Good, excellent. Gorilla?

-Gorilla.

0:25:460:25:50

Ooh-ooh-ooh!

0:25:500:25:51

-Very good.

-Excellent.

-Dolphin.

-Cool. Dolphin.

0:25:510:25:55

SHE MEWS

0:25:560:25:59

THEY LAUGH

0:25:590:26:02

Lovely.

0:26:050:26:06

-Lovely, good.

-OK, and then, all together, slug.

0:26:080:26:11

All together, slug!

0:26:110:26:13

LAUGHTER AND APPLAUSE

0:26:130:26:18

OK, that's brilliant. Let's leave it there. Just carry on.

0:26:200:26:23

-Do some scales with them.

-So, we'll just do some scales.

0:26:230:26:27

So, we'll start on...

0:26:270:26:29

HE HUMS A NOTE

0:26:290:26:31

That's our nurses, ladies and gentlemen.

0:26:310:26:33

They look like fun, don't they? APPLAUSE

0:26:330:26:37

OK.

0:26:370:26:38

This is our lift, ladies and gentlemen.

0:26:400:26:42

AUDIENCE WHOOPS

0:26:420:26:44

OK, so, it has a capacity of 12 people,

0:26:440:26:47

so we're going to bring up, I think, ten and then 11

0:26:470:26:50

and then we're going to surprise them in two groups.

0:26:500:26:52

But I'm going to show you round the lift first. Open!

0:26:520:26:55

Yes, it opened for me.

0:26:550:26:57

When people come into the lift,

0:26:590:27:01

you know there's that button that you press to hold it open,

0:27:010:27:04

and then there's one to close it?

0:27:040:27:06

Do you ever pretend you're doing the open one and do the other one?

0:27:070:27:10

"Oh, sorry. Sorry."

0:27:100:27:12

LAUGHTER

0:27:120:27:15

So, this is the lift. Come and have a look up here. Look, exit this way.

0:27:150:27:19

Oh, they're closing.

0:27:190:27:21

OK, so, I'm now inside the lift. Very authentic here.

0:27:220:27:26

This'll tell them where they're going.

0:27:260:27:27

Of course, they're not going anywhere.

0:27:270:27:29

And this is where they come into the lift. Doors are opening there.

0:27:290:27:32

So, when the lift doors are closed, have a look at this.

0:27:320:27:35

-LIFT:

-'Doors closing.'

-That's my voice.

0:27:350:27:38

Look, it's very authentic. We've got lights and everything.

0:27:400:27:44

There's a fire thing that may or may not have a camera in it.

0:27:440:27:46

I think it does. Very good. Doors open, they get into the lift.

0:27:460:27:51

So, if these doors open,

0:27:510:27:52

you'll see their point of view and look at all of you.

0:27:520:27:55

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE Yeah, OK.

0:27:550:27:58

Very exciting. And, of course, when that moment happens,

0:28:000:28:05

it is your responsibility to give them an enormous Christmas welcome.

0:28:050:28:10

-OK, you up for that? AUDIENCE:

-Yes!

0:28:100:28:12

All right, let's bring up the first batch

0:28:120:28:17

of Forth Valley nurses.

0:28:170:28:20

-Hey, gang, it's happening. Yeah!

-NURSES CHEER

0:28:200:28:24

Right, I can't take all of you. You've mentioned this, haven't you?

0:28:240:28:27

So, I just need the first half, if I can.

0:28:270:28:30

Who wants to come with me now?

0:28:300:28:32

Follow me. So, if you lead at the back. Come with me, guys.

0:28:320:28:36

Get some fresh air.

0:28:390:28:42

(Remember to be very quiet as they come up.)

0:28:420:28:44

OK, I'll just get the lift door for you.

0:28:490:28:51

In you get, yeah.

0:28:560:28:58

Keep on coming, ladies. That's OK.

0:28:580:29:01

Air-conditioned here, though, isn't it?

0:29:030:29:05

THEY CHAT

0:29:050:29:10

Is everyone in there? OK, so, if you just press floor two.

0:29:100:29:13

Close.

0:29:130:29:15

THEY CHAT

0:29:150:29:21

Floor two.

0:29:210:29:22

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:29:260:29:29

Come over here.

0:29:420:29:44

Welcome. Welcome, welcome, welcome.

0:29:490:29:53

Don't be alarmed.

0:29:530:29:56

Over there, you'll see Ange over there. There's Angie!

0:29:560:29:59

So, girls, let me explain what's happening.

0:30:030:30:05

This is my Christmas television show.

0:30:050:30:07

-You've been set up by Angie there from the hospital.

-Love you!

0:30:080:30:15

-You've come down today from the Forth Valley, is that right?

-Yes.

0:30:160:30:20

-And you think you're here for...?

-An audition.

0:30:200:30:23

Right.

0:30:240:30:26

I've got news for you, girls.

0:30:260:30:28

You've got the part.

0:30:280:30:30

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:30:300:30:34

Let's call up the other nurses now.

0:30:380:30:40

Everybody has to be completely quiet.

0:30:400:30:42

Hey, gang. Ready? We all ready?

0:30:420:30:45

Yeah, come on through, come on through.

0:30:450:30:48

Sorry about the delay.

0:30:480:30:49

You know what's really funny, is that every single week,

0:30:490:30:52

there's a paramedic who actually waits side-of-stage.

0:30:520:30:56

But I think, with your qualifications,

0:30:560:30:58

you should have this covered.

0:30:580:31:00

(Here they come. Ssh!)

0:31:030:31:06

I just want to make sure I've got everyone.

0:31:090:31:11

Get in, gang. Squeeze over.

0:31:130:31:16

Let me get this door open for you.

0:31:160:31:18

There you go.

0:31:210:31:22

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:31:220:31:25

What? What?

0:31:350:31:38

Ladies and gentlemen, it's our Unexpected Stars of tonight's show,

0:31:390:31:43

the Forth Valley nurses!

0:31:430:31:46

Yeah!

0:31:460:31:50

Girls, let me explain what's happening because this must

0:31:520:31:55

be very shocking. You have been surprised.

0:31:550:31:57

Look over there at lovely Angela sitting in the audience.

0:31:570:32:00

-There's Angie.

-Hi, girls!

0:32:000:32:03

Angela has helped organise this big surprise for you.

0:32:050:32:09

You may have noticed it's my Christmas TV show.

0:32:090:32:12

The nation are watching,

0:32:120:32:14

and you are going to be our Unexpected Stars of tonight's show.

0:32:140:32:18

-I gather you perform together in a choir, is that right?

-Yes.

-Yes?

0:32:180:32:23

-Yes.

-You like to sing together?

-Yes, very much so.

0:32:230:32:26

-And you think you're here for an audition?

-Yes.

0:32:260:32:29

You will be closing tonight's show, singing a beautiful Christmas song

0:32:290:32:33

for all of us here tonight in the theatre.

0:32:330:32:35

2,000 people in the Theatre Royal in Drury Lane, and, of course,

0:32:350:32:38

the millions of people watching at home.

0:32:380:32:40

You up for that?

0:32:400:32:42

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:32:420:32:45

-All right. How you feeling?

-Wonderful.

-Wonderful.

0:32:480:32:52

-Were you watching us earlier?

-Yes, we were.

0:32:520:32:54

Yeah, yeah.

0:32:560:32:58

HE IMPERSONATES A GORILLA

0:32:580:33:00

LAUGHTER

0:33:000:33:03

The dolphin was good. The dolphin.

0:33:080:33:10

-You were the dolphin?

-Yes!

0:33:140:33:17

HE IMPERSONATES A DOLPHIN

0:33:170:33:20

OK, we'll see you later on. Ladies and gentlemen, it's our nurses.

0:33:210:33:25

We'll see you later on. CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:33:250:33:29

Off you go this way. We'll get you sorted out.

0:33:310:33:34

See you later on, girls. See you later on.

0:33:340:33:37

No, don't go that way.

0:33:370:33:39

I thought you took a present!

0:33:390:33:41

I thought she'd nicked one of the presents!

0:33:460:33:48

SCOTTISH ACCENT: 'I'll have that, yeah.

0:33:480:33:50

'I'm down in London. These cameras aren't rolling, are they?'

0:33:500:33:53

LAUGHTER AND APPLAUSE

0:33:530:33:56

What a cheek!

0:33:560:33:58

I turn around and she's under the tree.

0:33:580:34:00

'That one looks my size. I'm having that.'

0:34:000:34:03

APPLAUSE

0:34:050:34:09

It is now time for some Christmas fun.

0:34:090:34:13

AUDIENCE WHOOPS

0:34:130:34:15

You, the audience, are going to compete against each other

0:34:150:34:21

in what we're calling the Big Show Christmas Games!

0:34:210:34:25

APPLAUSE

0:34:250:34:29

The audience is in four sections.

0:34:310:34:34

Each section of this audience is going to be represented by

0:34:340:34:37

a competitor in our Christmas Games.

0:34:370:34:40

So, first off, I'm actually going to come into the stalls

0:34:400:34:43

and I'm going to find one person

0:34:430:34:45

who would like to play the games tonight.

0:34:450:34:48

Hold the line, I'm coming down.

0:34:480:34:50

-OK, your hand is up. What's your name?

-Julie.

-Hi, Julie.

-Hello.

0:34:530:34:57

-Your hat's fallen off. You're very excitable.

-Nervous.

0:34:570:35:00

You're dancing to a song I can't hear.

0:35:000:35:02

-I'm nervous.

-What do you do when you're nervous?

-Salsa.

0:35:040:35:07

-What's your name?

-My name's Noreen.

0:35:100:35:13

-Hi, Noreen.

-Hello.

-Where are you from, Noreen?

-From Woking.

0:35:130:35:16

-Why should I pick you, Noreen?

-Because I'm very, very naughty.

0:35:160:35:21

I think the stalls want her. AUDIENCE CHEERS

0:35:210:35:25

Come on, let's go.

0:35:250:35:27

Noreen's going to play the game.

0:35:270:35:29

OK, Noreen, I'm going to ask you to just head off over here,

0:35:340:35:37

some people waiting, and they're going to get you in your tracksuit

0:35:370:35:40

and then you'll be competing later on.

0:35:400:35:42

Ladies and gentlemen, for the stalls, it's Noreen!

0:35:420:35:45

APPLAUSE

0:35:450:35:47

OK, so that is Noreen who's playing for you down here in the stalls.

0:35:470:35:51

Let's find out who's playing for the rest of the theatre.

0:35:510:35:54

Representing the royal circle...

0:35:540:35:56

APPLAUSE AND BOOS

0:35:560:36:00

I feel a bit mad about this. It is a man who hates Christmas.

0:36:000:36:04

It's real-life Scrooge,

0:36:040:36:06

Philip Atkinson from Buckinghamshire.

0:36:060:36:08

APPLAUSE

0:36:080:36:12

Welcome, Philip.

0:36:120:36:13

So, Philip, what is it that you don't like about Christmas?

0:36:130:36:16

-Predictable.

-Yes, that's certainly the case.

0:36:160:36:18

-Boring.

-Boring.

-Socks.

-Yeah.

0:36:180:36:22

-Shower gel.

-Yeah, you're not keen on Christmas.

-It's awful.

0:36:240:36:28

I'm sorry to the royal circle, but give him all your love.

0:36:280:36:32

APPLAUSE

0:36:320:36:34

Right, so that's Philip.

0:36:340:36:36

It is good news, I have to say, for the grand circle.

0:36:360:36:39

Representing you is the opposite of Philip.

0:36:390:36:43

It's Christmas-obsessed, super-organised mum, Hayley Black!

0:36:430:36:49

Go on, Hayley! APPLAUSE

0:36:490:36:52

Yay! It's Hayley!

0:36:520:36:56

-Christmas is something that you love?

-Can't get enough of it.

0:36:560:36:59

I think we've got some pictures of you enjoying Christmas, Hayley.

0:36:590:37:03

Talk us through that one.

0:37:030:37:05

I sort of turned up at work dressed as a cracker.

0:37:050:37:07

You went to work dressed as a cracker?

0:37:070:37:09

-Was anybody else in fancy dress?

-No.

0:37:090:37:10

That's what I like about you, Hayley.

0:37:100:37:13

-This is the outside of your house.

-It is.

0:37:130:37:15

APPLAUSE

0:37:150:37:18

Playing for the grand circle and the gold team, it's Hayley.

0:37:180:37:22

APPLAUSE

0:37:220:37:25

Now, finally, for you lot at the top,

0:37:250:37:29

it's Olympian Lewis Smith!

0:37:290:37:31

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:37:310:37:33

Yeah!

0:37:330:37:35

-How are you? Congratulations.

-Thank you very much.

0:37:400:37:43

-You've got a multitude of Olympic medals.

-I've got a few, yeah.

0:37:430:37:46

-From the last three Olympics.

-Yeah.

0:37:460:37:50

Thank you so much for being here. Merry Christmas.

0:37:500:37:52

Playing for the balcony, the red team.

0:37:520:37:57

And playing for the stalls, it's Noreen!

0:37:570:37:59

# Rockin' around the Christmas tree

0:37:590:38:02

# At the Christmas party hop. #

0:38:020:38:05

All right.

0:38:050:38:07

Let's get started and play our first Christmas game.

0:38:080:38:12

Right, listen very carefully.

0:38:120:38:13

Over here, we have some Christmas lights

0:38:130:38:17

that are in a horrifically tangled situation.

0:38:170:38:21

So, you have to untangle the lights, then you have to wrap them round

0:38:210:38:24

your individual trees, and then you have to classically climb

0:38:240:38:28

underneath the three and switch on the plug.

0:38:280:38:31

And when I say underneath the tree,

0:38:310:38:32

it's going to be right underneath it here,

0:38:320:38:34

so you have to climb under and, of course, don't try this game at home.

0:38:340:38:38

To demonstrate the game properly,

0:38:380:38:41

please welcome the nation's favourite teenager,

0:38:410:38:45

Kevin Patterson!

0:38:450:38:47

APPLAUSE

0:38:470:38:49

Kevin, are you there? Kevin?

0:38:490:38:51

-I'm coming!

-Come on out, Kev.

0:38:510:38:53

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:38:550:38:59

Kev, get off your phone.

0:39:020:39:05

-Urgh!

-Turn it off.

0:39:050:39:07

-Urgh!

-Kevin, turn it off.

0:39:070:39:09

Oh, what is your problem?

0:39:090:39:13

You can't be on your phone, Kevin.

0:39:130:39:15

-BELLOWS:

-Don't shout at me!

0:39:150:39:18

Urgh, urgh, urgh, it's so unfair!

0:39:190:39:23

I HATE you!

0:39:230:39:25

Kevin, why are you walking like a zombie?

0:39:260:39:30

-Can't you walk properly?

-At least I don't walk like you.

0:39:300:39:32

"Oh, I've got a man drawer!"

0:39:320:39:34

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:39:340:39:37

Kevin...I remember when I was a teenager.

0:39:370:39:41

How long have you been a teenager now?

0:39:410:39:43

Feels like 22 years.

0:39:460:39:48

LAUGHTER

0:39:480:39:50

Merry Christmas. Bought your mum a present yet?

0:39:500:39:52

-Yeah, course I have. Yeah, yeah, yeah.

-What you get her?

0:39:520:39:55

Fifa 17.

0:39:550:39:56

-And what about your dad?

-Spare controller.

0:39:580:40:01

And what about you, Kevin? What do you want for Christmas?

0:40:010:40:03

Oh, I really need a new phone.

0:40:030:40:04

I so need a new phone!

0:40:040:40:07

I've got to have a new phone!

0:40:070:40:09

I want a new phone!

0:40:090:40:10

Just... I actually have bought you a Christmas present.

0:40:100:40:13

-What?

-Yeah, I got you a present.

-Oh.

0:40:130:40:15

-I got you one. Here it is, under the tree.

-Oh.

0:40:150:40:18

-Kevin, from all of us to you.

-Oh. Thank you very much.

0:40:180:40:21

-Oh.

-AUDIENCE MEMBER:

-Aw!

0:40:210:40:24

Oh.

0:40:250:40:27

Thank you very much.

0:40:270:40:28

-Kevin, what have you done? What are you doing?

-What?

0:40:300:40:33

You've got to smash the screen, haven't you?

0:40:330:40:35

I'm a teenager - it's the law!

0:40:370:40:40

Kevin, are you going to help me demonstrate this game

0:40:420:40:44

that we're about to play with our competitors?

0:40:440:40:46

Urgh! I am not your slave!

0:40:460:40:49

-OK, stop texting and help me.

-Urgh!

-Just for one second. Come on, Kevin.

0:40:510:40:54

-OK!

-All right, come on.

0:40:540:40:56

There are the lights here, Kev, all right?

0:40:560:40:59

So, you've got to try and untangle the lights.

0:40:590:41:01

-Want to give that a go?

-Urgh!

0:41:010:41:03

You're... You're doing well, Kevin.

0:41:070:41:10

Aren't I? Sarcastic emoji.

0:41:100:41:12

I think you're doing a really good job, though.

0:41:140:41:16

Oh, thanks very much.

0:41:160:41:18

So bored, I'm in a coma-faced emoji.

0:41:180:41:21

I hate you!

0:41:220:41:24

Kevin, ladies and gentlemen! APPLAUSE

0:41:270:41:31

Now that we're clear on the rules,

0:41:310:41:33

let's reveal the game.

0:41:330:41:36

-AUDIENCE:

-Ooh!

0:41:360:41:39

Yeah!

0:41:390:41:41

OK, so if you would like to take your positions

0:41:410:41:44

in front of your colour-coded tree.

0:41:440:41:46

CHEERING

0:41:460:41:48

Once I pop my party popper, you must race.

0:41:480:41:51

Play!

0:41:510:41:53

MUSIC: Merry Christmas Everyone by Shakin' Stevens

0:41:540:41:58

0:42:230:42:25

So close.

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:42:450:42:48

Congratulations all round. Well done.

0:42:480:42:50

Now, ladies and gentlemen, it is time to find out what replies

0:42:530:42:56

Aled Jones has received this evening in tonight's

0:42:560:43:00

Christmas Celebrity Send To All!

0:43:000:43:03

So, let's just remind ourselves of the text that I sent from Aled's

0:43:040:43:08

phone earlier tonight, which was...

0:43:080:43:10

So...the replies have been flooding in.

0:43:280:43:31

Let's have a look at what's happened.

0:43:310:43:34

-OK, Sam... Who's Sam?

-Have I texted Sam?

0:43:340:43:37

-No, I did.

-Oh, yeah, you did.

0:43:370:43:40

He's my boss at Classic FM.

0:43:400:43:42

-AUDIENCE:

-Ooh!

0:43:420:43:44

Well, that explains how he's opened the text.

0:43:440:43:47

Your boss at Classic FM has opened with,

0:43:480:43:51

"In the morning?! You're on air at 9am.

0:43:510:43:55

"That'll be a very early appointment."

0:43:580:44:00

Then he's gone on,

0:44:000:44:02

"I'd go for a flying snowman spread across both butt cheeks.

0:44:020:44:07

"It'll be a thing of beauty."

0:44:100:44:12

What a lovely idea, with the...!

0:44:120:44:14

You fancy that, Snowman?

0:44:180:44:20

OK, that was a great text.

0:44:220:44:24

We can end there, if you like.

0:44:240:44:26

Doctor Hilary.

0:44:260:44:28

-Is that Doctor Hilary from the telly?

-Yeah.

0:44:280:44:30

-Doctor Hilary Jones?

-Yeah.

0:44:300:44:32

-I think he's texted that Welsh word that goes on forever.

-What?

0:44:320:44:35

-Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrob wllllantysiliogogogoch.

-Yes.

0:44:350:44:39

CHEERING

0:44:390:44:42

Oh, no. He's basically...

0:44:430:44:45

I didn't read the text.

0:44:450:44:46

He said, "The word..."

0:44:460:44:48

Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrob wllllantysiliogogogoch.

0:44:480:44:51

"..on your willy."

0:44:510:44:53

There's more.

0:44:560:44:57

"I could do this for you under local anaesthetic...

0:44:570:45:01

"..in red ink, Doctor H."

0:45:030:45:05

That is a great text!

0:45:050:45:07

Hilary Jones, how dare you!

0:45:080:45:11

Oh, that is brilliant.

0:45:120:45:15

-Louis Chivers.

-Louise Chivers, yeah.

-Who is Louise Chivers?

0:45:150:45:18

-She's just a friend.

-Just a friend.

0:45:180:45:20

"Was this text meant for me or your therapist?"

0:45:200:45:23

-OK, Laura Tobin.

-Yeah. She's a weather girl.

0:45:260:45:29

"This is the best idea I've ever heard.

0:45:290:45:31

"Why not have microwave in Welsh?

0:45:310:45:34

"Best word ever."

0:45:340:45:36

Microwave in Welsh is popty ping.

0:45:360:45:39

-No!

-Yes.

0:45:390:45:41

No!

0:45:410:45:42

So, the ping is the sound that the microwave...

0:45:420:45:45

-Are you joking?!

-Popty is oven and so it's oven ping.

0:45:450:45:49

-Oven that pings. Popty ping.

-Popty ping

0:45:490:45:52

WELSH ACCENT: 'I'm absolutely ravenous.

0:45:520:45:54

'Put some chips in the popty ping, innit?'

0:45:540:45:56

-Anthea?

-That's Anthea Turner.

0:46:010:46:03

Anthea Turner.

0:46:030:46:04

"But you've already got the dragon." Do you?

0:46:040:46:07

No, I don't have the dragon!

0:46:070:46:09

She says, "But you've already got the dragon, I've seen it."

0:46:090:46:11

-She hasn't.

-"You know where to put that snowman and his carrot.

0:46:110:46:14

"Lot's of love, Anth."

0:46:160:46:18

She's brilliant.

0:46:180:46:19

We're not going to get this done, are we, tonight?

0:46:190:46:21

Er, no, I'm going through every single one of them. Erm...

0:46:210:46:24

-Oh, no, sorry, you meant the tattoo!

-I did, yeah!

0:46:240:46:27

That would be such a brilliant end to the show!

0:46:270:46:29

If some guy comes in, zzz...

0:46:290:46:32

COCKNEY ACCENT: 'What was the name of that Welsh town, mate?

0:46:330:46:37

'I'm in a rush. Can we just do Cardiff?'

0:46:370:46:39

Helen Hand.

0:46:410:46:43

I can't remember who Helen Hand is.

0:46:430:46:45

Helen Hand, who he can't remember, has texted, "It will be painful.

0:46:450:46:49

"Where are you getting the tattoo done - question."

0:46:490:46:52

She's actually written the word question.

0:46:520:46:54

"Question. Do you want everyone to see it?

0:47:080:47:12

-AUDIENCE:

-Ooh!

-She sounds great.

0:47:120:47:14

She is all over this and fully expecting you to put on weight.

0:47:160:47:20

Yeah.

0:47:200:47:21

Apparently...

0:47:210:47:23

I've just heard she's your make-up artist.

0:47:230:47:25

LAUGHTER

0:47:250:47:28

No, not my make-up artist.

0:47:280:47:29

I've known her for quite a while and I have worked with her, yeah.

0:47:290:47:32

-OK.

-Oh, man. I'm not going to have any friends left, am I?

0:47:320:47:35

She's given you a lot of advice.

0:47:350:47:37

It doesn't matter. You're not losing friends you can't remember, Aled!

0:47:370:47:41

And we'll end on Lorraine Kelly.

0:47:410:47:44

Lovely Lorraine Kelly.

0:47:460:47:48

Simple two-liner - "A dragon on your bum, then send me a photo."

0:47:480:47:52

Brilliant.

0:47:550:47:57

Ladies and gentlemen, what a legend and a great sport.

0:47:570:48:00

What fun we've had with him tonight in our Christmas Send To All.

0:48:000:48:03

Aled Jones!

0:48:030:48:05

And don't forget the Snowman!

0:48:060:48:08

CHEERING

0:48:080:48:10

All right, that was awesome.

0:48:110:48:13

OK, it is time for our second Christmas event.

0:48:130:48:18

It's the Christmas Games, ladies and gentlemen!

0:48:180:48:21

So, please welcome back our competitors.

0:48:220:48:25

Christmas Eve, of course, it is a time

0:48:300:48:32

where the fridge is at its fullest.

0:48:320:48:35

You can't even believe how full it is.

0:48:350:48:38

We've all had the moment when you open the fridge on Christmas Eve

0:48:380:48:41

and it blows you away. "Oh! I've never seen the fridge so full!"

0:48:410:48:45

So, outside of the theatre is a car.

0:48:460:48:50

In the boot are the remaining two shopping bags.

0:48:500:48:53

Your job is to fill the fridge up with all the food.

0:48:530:48:58

And here's the key part!

0:48:580:48:59

The door must close.

0:48:590:49:02

It's time to play Christmas Eve Fridge.

0:49:030:49:06

And here to demonstrate this game for us,

0:49:080:49:11

please welcome a grandmother from East London, Joannie Taylor.

0:49:110:49:15

-It's Nan!

-Ah-ha-ha-ha!

0:49:150:49:18

Hello! Hello!

0:49:180:49:21

Ah-ah-ah-ah!

0:49:210:49:23

Ah!

0:49:230:49:26

Ah-ha-ha-ha!

0:49:260:49:28

Do you need help? Do you need help, Nan?

0:49:280:49:30

I... Oh, look who it is, it's my favourite. Ah-ah-ah-ah!

0:49:300:49:33

-Hi, Nan. Do you need some help?

-No, darling!

-Can I...?

0:49:330:49:35

-You go over there... No, darling.

-Do you want me to help you?

0:49:350:49:38

-You've got enough to do, don't ya?

-You don't want me to help?

0:49:380:49:41

No! Don't bother helping me, will ya?

0:49:410:49:44

-God help us.

-Welcome, Nan.

0:49:450:49:48

-Welcome.

-Ah-ah-ah-ah!

0:49:480:49:50

-CHEERING Welcome.

-Hello!

0:49:500:49:53

Ah-ah-ah-ah!

0:49:530:49:55

You're a good boy, you are.

0:49:550:49:56

You're a good boy.

0:49:560:49:58

-Are you enjoying the show, Nan?

-Oh, I love it, sweetheart.

0:49:580:50:00

When you came out and you popped out of that box, didn't you?

0:50:000:50:04

And it was just a classic Christmas, wasn't it?

0:50:040:50:07

Cos there is always one present that's disappointing.

0:50:070:50:09

Ah-ah-ah-ah!

0:50:090:50:11

-Look who we've got, Nan.

-Who's that?

0:50:120:50:15

-We've got Aled Jones here and the Snowman.

-Is that Aled Jones?

0:50:150:50:17

I got a very strange text from Aled.

0:50:170:50:20

Very strange text - something about a tattoo.

0:50:230:50:25

I tell you what, darling,

0:50:250:50:27

across your forehead, say, "Yes, I am Aled Jones.

0:50:270:50:29

"No, I'm not going to bleeding well sing We're Walking On The Air."

0:50:290:50:32

Ah-ah-ah-ah!

0:50:320:50:34

-All right, now, Nan...

-Right.

0:50:340:50:36

-Now, you're here to demonstrate the game.

-My fridge.

0:50:360:50:39

Come over here. This is the fridge game,

0:50:390:50:41

so they're going to fill the fridge,

0:50:410:50:43

and I understand that you filled this fridge earlier...

0:50:430:50:46

I did, darling, that's it.

0:50:460:50:47

..to show the competitors how it's done.

0:50:470:50:50

Yeah. Here you are, look at that. Here, look at that.

0:50:500:50:53

-AUDIENCE:

-Ooh!

-That.

0:50:530:50:55

So, that is the Christmas Eve Fridge.

0:50:550:50:57

That's what we're looking for, sweetheart.

0:50:570:50:59

And that is perfectly packed by Nan.

0:50:590:51:01

There's a fridge cam there.

0:51:010:51:02

Look, Nan, you can see...

0:51:020:51:04

And it is... Ah-ah-ah-ah!

0:51:040:51:06

-Look, I've got...

-That's us gazing in the fridge, Nan.

0:51:070:51:10

-It is, innit?

-Midnight snack.

0:51:100:51:12

That's all it is for you, innit, a snack?

0:51:120:51:14

So...round of applause for Nan. APPLAUSE

0:51:170:51:21

So, what's...what's going to happen is outside

0:51:210:51:25

the competitors are... Out...

0:51:250:51:27

Nan, are you all right? Nan?

0:51:270:51:29

What? Yeah, no, I...

0:51:290:51:31

Yeah, no, I'm checking it's safe.

0:51:310:51:33

A few last-minute touches.

0:51:330:51:34

You've got to go outside, you've got to grab the bags from the car,

0:51:340:51:38

-and your...

-(Don't need nothing, do it?)

0:51:380:51:40

Don't need nothing, do it?

0:51:400:51:42

Oh, look...

0:51:430:51:46

All right? Oh, hello, what?

0:51:460:51:48

-Nan, are you OK?

-I'm rearranging it.

0:51:480:51:51

Ladies and gentlemen, it's Nan!

0:51:510:51:53

Good luck, darlings! Good luck.

0:51:530:51:56

So, competitors, let's have a look at your empty fridges.

0:51:580:52:03

-AUDIENCE:

-Ooh!

0:52:050:52:09

We'll show you the cars.

So...

0:52:220:52:24

Here we are. I've got my popper to start the game.

0:52:240:52:27

What you have to remember is the fridge must close.

0:52:270:52:30

-Are you ready?

-Yeah.

0:52:300:52:31

We're all ready? Let's...play the game!

Hayley's eating the food!

0:53:080:53:10

It looks Louis has got... Look at that turkey on its end!

0:53:100:53:13

HE SCREAMS

0:53:150:53:17

Oh! Louis is...!

0:53:220:53:25

He's got to shut it! It's got to stay shut!

Thanks, guys.

0:53:590:54:00

Off you go. Amazing. Merry Christmas!

0:54:000:54:04

Right, earlier tonight, ladies and gentlemen,

0:54:070:54:09

21 nurses thought they were here to audition for a Christmas concert,

0:54:090:54:14

that is until we surprised them with the news that they were to

0:54:140:54:18

become our unexpected Christmas stars of tonight's show.

0:54:180:54:21

Now, let's have a little look at how the last hour has unfolded for them.

0:54:210:54:26

We thought we were coming for an audition.

0:54:270:54:29

We were hoping we were going to get the job!

0:54:290:54:31

-LAUGHTER

-And we got it!

0:54:310:54:33

We were put in a lift and then the doors opened,

0:54:340:54:37

and all you saw was a sea of faces.

0:54:370:54:40

It was just like a dream.

0:54:400:54:42

Never in a million years did any of us think that

0:54:420:54:46

this was going to happen.

0:54:460:54:48

CHATTER

0:54:480:54:50

Hi, ladies. Come on in.

0:54:510:54:53

I think they do such an important job.

0:54:530:54:55

They're the people that we can't do without when we need them,

0:54:550:54:58

so actually to see them onstage and celebrate them is fantastic.

0:54:580:55:00

THEY SING

0:55:000:55:02

LAUGHTER

0:55:020:55:05

It's the first time I've sat down for a while.

0:55:070:55:09

THEY SING

0:55:090:55:11

It is nice to be pampered.

0:55:110:55:13

An unusual experience.

0:55:130:55:15

There are two things that we are all passionate about

0:55:170:55:20

and that's loving people and caring about them,

0:55:200:55:22

and music, and we're getting to do it on a stage like this

0:55:220:55:25

and at Christmas time. What else could you ask for?

0:55:250:55:27

Please welcome the Forth Valley Nurses Choir!
