CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

Hello and welcome to the Best of Tonight's The Night!

0:01:210:01:25

Yes, with amazing new dreams and classic moments from the last two series.

0:01:270:01:31

Whether it's singing with a legend, dancing in the West End

0:01:310:01:35

or just something nice and simple like jumping out of a plane at 30,000 feet,

0:01:350:01:40

this is your one-stop shop for making dreams a reality,

0:01:400:01:44

so if like me you've dreamed of dressing as a fairy godmother,

0:01:440:01:48

then dancing down the street at rush hour, singing, "Oh, for a wand,"

0:01:480:01:52

you know exactly who to call!

0:01:520:01:55

-A psychiatrist. Anyway...

-LAUGHTER

-Here's what's on the way.

0:01:550:02:00

We've had some legendary line-ups on Tonight's The Night.

0:02:000:02:03

We'll remember when country icon Dolly Parton made this girl's dream come true, and tonight,

0:02:030:02:09

there's a never seen before duet featuring Dusty Springfield.

0:02:090:02:13

I've had a little help from my friends this year.

0:02:130:02:17

We'll look back at how Matt Baker and Jodie Prenger pulled off some spectacular surprises,

0:02:170:02:23

plus sporty wishes and daredevil dreams from wing-walking to sky-diving.

0:02:230:02:28

Find out how and why this golf fanatic met his hero, Colin Montgomerie.

0:02:280:02:33

And finally, how about some of our very best West End dreams brought to life right here?

0:02:330:02:39

Every week, we're home to big dreams and big stars.

0:02:390:02:43

Fancy a singing lesson from a legend? Mr Manilow will see you now.

0:02:430:02:47

How about a duet with a soul superstar? Dionne Warwick has a spare microphone.

0:02:470:02:51

Maybe your idol is the queen of country. No problem, Dolly Parton is waiting for you in Tennessee.

0:02:510:02:58

We're in Scotland, Stirling to be exact. We're packing out this pub with a load of cameras

0:03:020:03:07

to surprise Annie Smart.

0:03:070:03:09

'What a scandalous surprise it is as I'm about to hit the headlines!'

0:03:090:03:13

We've hired the cameras of our fake paparazzi,

0:03:130:03:17

all to convince Annie that John Barrowman has been a very naughty boy.

0:03:170:03:22

'We're going to all this trouble because Annie deserves it.

0:03:220:03:26

'She's a very busy girl supporting both her family and her community.

0:03:260:03:30

'Annie set up a choir to raise money for local cancer charities and hospices.

0:03:300:03:35

'It's now got over 100 members.

0:03:350:03:37

'So Annie and her sister are having a quiet pub lunch.

0:03:370:03:41

'Sorry, did I say "quiet"? My mistake.'

0:03:410:03:44

We want a story! John, John!

0:03:440:03:46

Major problem. I've been followed by a bunch of paps.

0:03:460:03:49

The place is surrounded by paparazzi.

0:03:490:03:52

You, you... You told me this wasn't going to get out.

0:03:550:03:59

My mom'll lay me over the coals about this one.

0:03:590:04:03

-Do you need any help?

-I'm so sorry.

-Do you need any help? Do you need a lift anywhere?

0:04:030:04:09

-I may take you up on that.

-You can steal my car.

0:04:090:04:12

'Meanwhile, the snappers outside are snapping at my heels.'

0:04:120:04:16

SHOUTING

0:04:160:04:18

-I'm going to sit with you. Is that OK?

-Aye.

-Could you ask them to move?

0:04:200:04:25

You go in, in case I have to make a run for it. I'm really sorry.

0:04:250:04:29

-I'm just trying to do my job.

-Get out of here!

0:04:290:04:33

-Do you mind if I have a mushroom?

-Of course you can have a mushroom.

0:04:330:04:38

-When I'm stressed, I eat.

-Cappuccino?

-No, I'll have a mushroom.

0:04:380:04:42

-Have a mushroom.

-Sorry, I'm John.

-I'm Annie.

-Nice to meet you.

-This is Jane.

0:04:420:04:47

'After taking her seat and her mushrooms, I make a break for it, leaving Annie to boost my ego.'

0:04:470:04:55

-Did you not recognise him?

-I don't know...

0:04:550:04:58

He's incredibly famous on the West End. He's a singer. He's been on BBC. He's very famous.

0:04:580:05:03

OK...

0:05:040:05:06

She's fallen for it hook, line and sinker.

0:05:060:05:09

She offered to come out and get rid of them and she offered to drive me somewhere. She's brilliant.

0:05:090:05:16

'It looks like compassionate Annie will help anyone, even a mushroom thief.

0:05:160:05:21

'Now it's time to reveal the truth.'

0:05:210:05:23

-SHOUTING

-All right, I'll take a picture with you, for goodness sake!

0:05:230:05:28

I have to say something.

0:05:280:05:30

It's really not about me.

0:05:300:05:32

It's about you.

0:05:320:05:34

LAUGHTER

0:05:340:05:37

I am John Barrowman from BBC-1's Tonight's The Night. Annie, I'll make your dream come true.

0:05:400:05:46

APPLAUSE

0:05:460:05:48

The Heart Of Scotland Choir are an inspirational choir for your community

0:05:490:05:55

because it makes people happy, it puts smiles on their faces.

0:05:550:05:58

-Your dream is to sing in front of millions of people.

-Yeah.

0:05:580:06:02

I'm going to take you to the Tonight's The Night studio

0:06:020:06:06

and you are going to perform in front of millions of people.

0:06:060:06:10

-You'll need to travel a bit. Are you OK with that?

-Yeah.

0:06:100:06:14

You'll travel to Nashville, Tennessee, to be trained by the legendary Dolly Parton!

0:06:140:06:19

'15 hours and 4,000 miles later, Annie arrives in Nashville to meet the queen of country.'

0:06:190:06:24

Hello!

0:06:240:06:26

You have to be Annie.

0:06:260:06:29

-I am Annie.

-Well, come here and give me a hug. How are you?

0:06:290:06:33

# Just when I've begun to get myself together

0:06:340:06:38

# You waltz right in the door, just like you've done before

0:06:380:06:42

# And you wrap my heart round your little finger

0:06:420:06:46

# Here you come again... #

0:06:460:06:49

You've got a beautiful quality in your voice.

0:06:490:06:53

-You've obviously been singing for a long time?

-Since I was this high.

0:06:530:06:57

So have I. I'm still that high, but I'm still singing.

0:06:570:07:01

How can I cope with my nerves? Is there anything you can recommend that I do?

0:07:010:07:06

People say in order to steel your nerves, you just look out in the crowd and picture everybody naked.

0:07:060:07:13

I just think these are my friends, not enemies. They didn't come to shoot me. They came to hear me sing.

0:07:130:07:20

-You get out there and knock 'em dead.

-Thank you so much.

0:07:200:07:23

-Break a leg and don't break a nail.

-OK.

0:07:230:07:27

Annie is going to do great. She's got a great personality, a great voice.

0:07:270:07:31

She's a little nervous, but still has all the confidence she needs to pull it off.

0:07:310:07:36

I know she's going to do great.

0:07:360:07:39

'So Annie grabbed her choir to head for our stage and millions of viewers. You go for it, girl!'

0:07:390:07:45

# Here you come again... #

0:07:450:07:47

CHEERING

0:07:470:07:49

# Just when I'm about to make it work without you

0:07:490:07:53

# You waltz right in the door just like you've done before

0:07:530:07:58

# And wrap my heart round your little finger

0:07:580:08:03

# Here you come again

0:08:030:08:06

# Just when I'm about to make it work without you

0:08:060:08:12

# You look into my eyes and light those dreamy eyes

0:08:120:08:16

# And pretty soon I'm wondering how I came to doubt you

0:08:160:08:21

# All you gotta do is smile that smile

0:08:210:08:25

# And there go all my defences

0:08:250:08:29

# Just leave it up to you and in a little while

0:08:290:08:35

# You're messing up my mind and filling up my senses...

0:08:350:08:39

# All you gotta do is smile that smile

0:08:440:08:48

-# And there go all my defences

-My defences

0:08:480:08:53

# Just leave it up to you and in a little while

0:08:530:08:57

# You're messing up my mind and filling up my senses

0:08:570:09:02

-# Here you come again

-Oh-oh-oh...

0:09:020:09:06

# Looking better than a body has the right to

0:09:060:09:11

# And shaking me up so, so all I really know

0:09:110:09:15

# Is here you come again

0:09:150:09:18

-# And here I go

-Here you come again

0:09:190:09:24

-# Here I go

-Here you come again

0:09:240:09:28

-# Here I go

-Here you come again

0:09:380:09:45

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:09:450:09:47

'From Tennessee to Tonight's The Night, dream delivered.

0:09:470:09:51

'Now here's a dream you've never seen before.'

0:09:510:09:54

I'm in London to surprise Helena Lockwood.

0:09:540:09:57

She thinks she's here to celebrate her sister's birthday.

0:09:570:10:01

She doesn't know that we've provided a very interesting tour guide and she's the main attraction.

0:10:010:10:07

In fact, Helena has been the main attraction since she was a little girl.

0:10:070:10:11

Friend Richard thinks her singing talent would have led to big things.

0:10:110:10:16

Helena has always had the ambition, I think, to be a West End performer.

0:10:160:10:21

She was top student in Music, Dance and Drama at school.

0:10:210:10:26

Helena was studying at university in Carlisle on a Performing Arts course,

0:10:260:10:31

then all of a sudden, she started developing voice problems.

0:10:310:10:35

'Doctors discovered nodules on Helena's throat and she had to undergo surgery to remove them.

0:10:350:10:40

'The surgery scarred her vocal cords which could end her singing career.

0:10:400:10:45

'Her dad Philip remembers her reaction.'

0:10:450:10:47

When the nodules problem came, it devastated her.

0:10:470:10:51

It was three years from having the operation before she sang again in public,

0:10:510:10:57

which was at our 25th wedding anniversary.

0:10:570:10:59

'Despite her own problems, Helena works tirelessly for others.

0:10:590:11:03

'Here's Barbara from the charity organisation GFS.'

0:11:030:11:07

The Girls Friendly Society works with girls and young women.

0:11:070:11:12

We have projects that help with unmarried mothers

0:11:120:11:16

and Helena is now a trustee of that society.

0:11:160:11:19

'Helena's sister Sarah thinks she's in for the shock of her life.'

0:11:190:11:23

She hasn't got a clue. She absolutely hasn't. I don't know how she hasn't got a clue.

0:11:230:11:29

I think she's just going to be blown away.

0:11:290:11:32

'Helena thinks she's going on a London bus tour to celebrate her sister's birthday.

0:11:330:11:38

'But this bus has hidden cameras and comes with an over-enthusiastic, but under-experienced tour guide.'

0:11:380:11:44

Stuart McDougall's going to give her a fabulous tour of London. Hit it, boys!

0:11:440:11:51

# London calling... #

0:11:510:11:53

'But my career as a guide is short-lived.'

0:11:530:11:57

Welcome on board, everybody.

0:11:580:12:00

As we first head down this lovely tree-lined lane,

0:12:000:12:03

which is notorious because when the clouds arenae blockin' the sun...

0:12:030:12:08

-It's John Barrowman. It is!

-Ssh!

0:12:080:12:11

-Ladies and gentlemen, we're heading up to...

-It is. Look at him.

0:12:110:12:15

'Buck teeth, dry hair, thick glasses and she still recognises me?! Thanks a lot(!)'

0:12:150:12:21

..at the Battle of Hastings.

0:12:210:12:24

It is. Look at his beautiful face.

0:12:240:12:27

'That's right - "beautiful". Did you hear that, everyone?

0:12:270:12:31

'Helena knows it's me, but doesn't know it's her in the spotlight.'

0:12:310:12:35

Are we all practising our royal wave, everybody?

0:12:350:12:38

Practise your royal wave.

0:12:380:12:40

Yes, wave to the punters, everybody, down there.

0:12:400:12:45

'OK, stop laughing.

0:12:460:12:48

'I think it's time to reveal the real attraction on this tour.'

0:12:480:12:53

This is one of the most glorious views of London.

0:12:530:12:56

As you see, the London Eye directly in front of us has got an eye over London.

0:12:560:13:01

But that's not the only thing that's got any eyes over London

0:13:010:13:05

because we've got an eye on you, Helena Lockwood.

0:13:050:13:08

-I'm actually John Barrowman from BBC-1's Tonight's The Night.

-I knew it was you!

0:13:080:13:13

I'm here to make your dream come true.

0:13:130:13:16

Did you know about this?

0:13:170:13:19

Yes.

0:13:190:13:21

Oh...

0:13:210:13:22

I knew it was you. I knew how good-looking you are.

0:13:220:13:26

Oh, stop it! Well, listen, um...

0:13:260:13:29

I know that you're a very special girl, also a young lady who's been through a difficult time,

0:13:290:13:36

so the reason I'm here today is not to completely talk rubbish about London,

0:13:360:13:42

but it's to make your dream come true and I would like you to come to the Tonight's The Night studio

0:13:420:13:48

and I would like you to sing to the nation and the studio audience.

0:13:480:13:52

What do you think about that?

0:13:520:13:55

Speechless?

0:13:560:13:58

You'd better not be speechless when you start to sing.

0:13:590:14:02

I didn't think it was for me at all.

0:14:040:14:06

I'm just stunned and shocked and a bit...weak in the knees.

0:14:060:14:11

APPLAUSE

0:14:120:14:14

Richard, you nominated her.

0:14:160:14:19

-Yes.

-I loved that she thought my face was beautiful, even with that disguise!

0:14:190:14:24

How excited will she be tonight going to sing on the stage of Tonight's The Night?

0:14:240:14:29

Tremendously excited. She loves to sing in front of an audience.

0:14:290:14:33

Sarah, did the problem with the nodules knock her back a bit?

0:14:330:14:37

-Did it set her back?

-Yeah, it was really sad to see. It really knocked her confidence.

0:14:370:14:42

But I think being involved in a show as prestigious as this has gone a long way

0:14:420:14:48

-to sort of rebuild that.

-Rebuild her confidence?

0:14:480:14:51

Definitely. We've seen a lot of the old Helena recently. It's been good.

0:14:510:14:56

I love hearing that. Richard, would you say that... Who is Helena's ultimate idol?

0:14:560:15:01

-She loves the songs from the '60s and she particularly loves Dusty Springfield.

-Does she now?

0:15:010:15:07

-Yes.

-Oh, well...

0:15:070:15:09

Here we go. They said it couldn't be done, but very few dreams are beyond us.

0:15:090:15:14

Duetting with the legendary Dusty Springfield,

0:15:140:15:17

Helena Lockwood, tonight's the night!

Awesome! That was awesome!

0:17:570:18:00

And you look absolutely stunning.

0:18:030:18:05

You've done something that most people could really only dream of. You sang with your idol.

0:18:050:18:11

-Yeah.

-Tell me how you feel.

0:18:110:18:13

-Amazing. No-one sings like Dusty Springfield.

-No-one sings like you either. That was... Seriously.

0:18:130:18:19

To be able to sing with a legend like that, it's absolutely brilliant. Richard...

0:18:190:18:24

Words of how that was?

0:18:240:18:27

Absolutely fantastic. I can't say any more... Sorry.

0:18:270:18:31

-I'm glad I could make that dream come true.

-Thank you.

0:18:310:18:35

It was truly a dream duet.

'Still to come, my celebrity friends help out with some mad surprises.

0:18:470:18:51

'We go up, up and away with some sky-high dreamers.

0:18:510:18:55

'And some big-time West End wishes come true.'

APPLAUSE

0:18:590:19:01

With so many dreams to make come true, I have a problem. I can't be everywhere at once.

0:19:010:19:06

Despite my time on Doctor Who, I have no access to cloning, time travel or parallel universes,

0:19:060:19:12

but I do have plenty of friends who will step up to the plate and make my surprises happen. Like this.

0:19:120:19:18

'Yes, one of my mates stepped up to surprise trainee hairdresser Jessica Bolton.

0:19:180:19:23

'After her mum fell ill, Jessica was the glue that kept the family together, so her dad Ian asked me

0:19:230:19:29

'to put her centre stage in a big West End number.

0:19:290:19:33

'So who better than Jodie Prenger to give Jessica the shock of her life?

0:19:330:19:37

'Jessica thought Jodie was filming a documentary about her career as a hairdresser,

0:19:370:19:43

'but Jodie has never been a hairdresser. Oh, really(?)'

0:19:430:19:46

'First, a member of the production team phones the salon and I perfect my telephone manner.'

0:19:460:19:52

-Hiya... What's the name?

-"Good morning, Panache."

0:19:520:19:55

Good morning, Panache. How may I help you?

0:19:550:19:58

-9.30, is that all right?

-We're not open then.

0:20:000:20:03

It'll be fine. 9.30?

0:20:030:20:06

-You'll be all right, 9.30?

-We're not open.

-You're not open.

0:20:060:20:10

They're not open. OK, how about the afternoon?

0:20:100:20:14

-Four o'clock, no problem.

-Did you get their name?

0:20:140:20:18

-Their what?

-Their name.

0:20:180:20:20

You ask them who it is. Do you know what they want?

0:20:210:20:24

Shall we just call them "Mr Booked"?

0:20:240:20:28

'Things get even more hair-raising when one regular customer,

0:20:280:20:32

'who's in on the set-up, is getting the hairdresser from hell - me.'

0:20:320:20:36

-Oh, don't worry, don't worry. You're in safe hands.

-Yeah, yeah.

0:20:360:20:41

-Careful with it!

-Oh, oh!

-I'm sorry, sorry.

-Careful!

0:20:410:20:44

-One minute. Are you all right?

-Jodie!

0:20:440:20:47

Keep your head back.

0:20:470:20:50

Keep your head back.

0:20:500:20:52

-Are you all right?

-Let me swap this towel for you.

0:20:520:20:55

Right...

0:20:550:20:56

'After her free facial, it's time to get her prized locks trimmed.

0:20:570:21:01

'She only wants half an inch off, but I'm not great with measurements.'

0:21:010:21:06

-Like that?

-Without cutting your finger.

-Have I cut my finger? No, it's all right.

0:21:060:21:11

I'll be fine, I'll be fine. We're just going to take...

0:21:110:21:14

-A tiny bit off.

-Just a tiny bit?

-Yeah.

0:21:140:21:18

Just about half an inch.

0:21:180:21:20

Just about there. Just...

0:21:200:21:22

That's... Oh, I missed a bit.

0:21:250:21:27

Yeah.

0:21:270:21:29

MOUTHS WORDS

0:21:290:21:32

-That's not half an inch.

-That's...

0:21:320:21:34

That's about four inches off my hair.

0:21:340:21:38

It depends what you've been told in inches, really... Just, um...

0:21:380:21:42

Can we not make it into like some hair extensions? We can glue it back on. We'll be fine.

0:21:420:21:48

You can't just glue it back on.

0:21:480:21:50

I'm just going to give you... I'll let you hold that.

0:21:500:21:54

'With the boss left to deal with an unhappy customer, it's time for me to clear things up with Jessica

0:21:540:22:00

'and let her know why I'm here.'

0:22:000:22:03

You've probably gathered by now

0:22:030:22:05

that I'm not here filming a documentary about me being a hairdresser.

0:22:050:22:10

I was never, ever a hairdresser, but why I am here...

0:22:100:22:15

I'm Jodie Prenger from the BBC and Tonight's The Night

0:22:150:22:18

and John Barrowman has sent me to make your dream come true.

0:22:180:22:22

-Oh, my God, are you kidding?

-No. What we're going to do...

-Are you all in on this?

0:22:220:22:27

So what we're going to do...

0:22:270:22:30

We've arranged it all, so you can go sing a big hit musical song from South Pacific

0:22:300:22:35

in front of millions of viewers on Tonight's The Night.

0:22:350:22:39

-How do you feel?

-I don't know what to say!

0:22:390:22:43

Don't worry. You're not going to be on your own.

0:22:430:22:46

We've got Samantha Womack, the star of South Pac...South Pacific. You've got me going!

0:22:460:22:51

She will be singing a duet with you on the night. How's that?

0:22:510:22:55

'Those dreams just keep on coming.

0:25:100:25:13

'Next up, it's the turn of mobile DJ and fund-raising superstar, Richard Hinds.

0:25:130:25:18

'In his spare time he raises money for charity,

0:25:180:25:21

'so I sent Matt Baker to York to turn Richard's weekend upside down.'

0:25:210:25:25

At this time on a Saturday, he's usually preparing for his mobile disco, but today,

0:25:250:25:31

BBC Radio York have asked him to be a guest on their brand-new show, Keith Magpie In The Afternoon.

0:25:310:25:36

He thinks he's here to talk about his charity work.

0:25:360:25:39

'But Tonight's The Night are rigging the studio with secret cameras

0:25:390:25:44

'and while he's in reception, I'm being transformed into BBC Radio York's newest and loudest star.'

0:25:440:25:51

All right there, ho-di-ho, it's Keith Magpie on your radio!

0:25:510:25:55

'So what's Richard's big wish?

0:25:550:25:58

'Well, according to wife Jane, it might be quite tricky.'

0:25:580:26:02

Richard's big wish? He'd love Elvis Presley to come back to life. He'd love to sing with him.

0:26:020:26:08

# You ain't nothin' but a hound dog... #

0:26:080:26:11

'Yeah, that's going to be hard, but we've arranged for him to sing with Elvis,

0:26:110:26:16

'a rock'n'roll legend of Million Dollar Quartet.'

0:26:160:26:19

# You ain't never caught a rabbit You ain't no friend of mine... #

0:26:190:26:23

I'm black and white through and through. My name's Keith Magpie. Who are you?

0:26:250:26:31

'Good catchphrase! Richard's primed to answer questions about his charity work.

0:26:310:26:36

'But dozy DJ Keith has got his guests mixed up

0:26:360:26:39

'and mistaken Richard for his later guest, beach expert Mr Richards.'

0:26:390:26:45

Hi, good to see you. 'So with Richard's family watching next door, here comes the phone-in from hell.

0:26:450:26:52

'But it's our team who are calling in.'

0:26:520:26:55

OK, I tell you what, let's go to the lines.

0:26:550:26:58

Our beach expert is here - Mr Richards. What would you like to ask him?

0:26:580:27:03

'Oh, hi.

0:27:030:27:05

'Do you think that the coastline and beaches are windier now than what they used to be?'

0:27:050:27:12

Oh, Mr Richards, are the coastlines and beaches...

0:27:120:27:17

Are they windier now? Have you noticed more wind?

0:27:170:27:20

-MOUTHS WORDS

-Yeah, we'll be right back.

0:27:200:27:23

I tell you what, it's the weather. Two seconds, we'll be right back on BBC Radio York.

0:27:230:27:29

-Huh?

-I'm not Mr Richards.

-Just go with it. I'll make it easy.

0:27:290:27:33

I'll make it easy. Go on, go on.

0:27:330:27:36

So the question we're asking here is have we noticed the beaches are getting a bit breezier,

0:27:360:27:42

just a bit of freshness coming in from the east?

0:27:420:27:45

Yeah, I think we have, yeah.

0:27:450:27:48

-Is it good kite-flying weather?

-Definitely.

-Why is it good kite-flying weather?

0:27:480:27:53

Just from the easterly wind that we're getting,

0:27:530:27:56

it is lifting those kites up a lot higher and taking them a lot further.

0:27:560:28:00

-You'll love this. Do you know what it is?

-Echo Beach.

0:28:000:28:04

Rock it out! Wahey!

0:28:040:28:07

'Richard's quick to learn, so now I'm going to put him right in the hot seat.'

0:28:070:28:11

-I'm just going to nip out. I'll be right back. If I don't get back in time, just press "go".

-Right.

0:28:110:28:18

Come round. Put these on if you want.

0:28:180:28:20

This is hilarious!

0:28:200:28:23

I don't know if he's got me or not. I don't think so. Bless him! I feel awful for putting him on the spot.

0:28:230:28:29

'Things are going to take a turn for the weird for Richard

0:28:290:28:33

'because the next song is the charity record he made with his daughter Emily.

0:28:330:28:38

'I can't keep the pressure on, let alone that moustache any more. Let's reveal all.'

0:28:380:28:44

Richard, hello. Listen up. I am not Keith Magpie.

0:28:440:28:48

I am actually Matt Baker

0:28:480:28:51

0:28:530:28:58

-Nervous.

-Cos you don't know what's going on.

-Shocked?

-"Who is this mad DJ?"

-Were you thinking, "What on earth is going on?"

Still to come: Colin Montgomerie gives his biggest fan a masterclass.

0:31:470:31:51

And we look back at more of my favourite West End wishes.

0:31:510:31:56

I understand these dreams because I've had them myself.

0:31:560:32:00

When I was young, I wanted to sing in the West End. I dreamed of performing with my favourite star

0:32:000:32:06

and I really wanted to fly through the air at a ridiculously high altitude with no safety net.

0:32:060:32:12

Hold on a minute! That's not me. You're on your own.

0:32:120:32:16

Some dreams really are sky high like this heart stopping moment from last year

0:32:160:32:22

with 79-year-old adrenaline junkie John Wilkins. John has no fear

0:32:220:32:26

as his daredevil stunts raise money for Bristol Children's Hospital.

0:32:260:32:31

He's skydived, abseiled and bungee jumped his way to raising over £100,000,

0:32:310:32:37

but John's daughter told us there's one stunt he still hasn't tried.

0:32:370:32:41

Dad's done so many really wild things, but one thing he really wants to do is to do wing walking.

0:32:410:32:48

It would be so wonderful to see him where he can enjoy the thrill and know it was a reward for him.

0:32:480:32:55

Before we gave him his wing walking surprise, we lured him to our hidden cameras with a web of lies.

0:32:550:33:01

My daughter said we had to go down to Weston-super-Mare for a photo shoot.

0:33:010:33:07

I thought, "OK. I've done it before." And as I came round the side of the wheel,

0:33:070:33:13

I saw the BBC crew there and John Barrowman.

0:33:130:33:18

"What on earth is this all about?"

0:33:180:33:20

'Well, this is all about a totally fictitious photo shoot and my totally real phobia of heights!

0:33:200:33:26

'What could possibly go wrong?'

0:33:260:33:29

-Hello?

-Somebody's speaking to us.

-'We're having some technical difficulties.'

0:33:290:33:36

He said he was afraid of heights. I said, "Really? Are you having me on, John?" He said, "No, no."

0:33:400:33:46

He said, "What can you do?" I said basically don't look down.

0:33:460:33:51

-Oh(!)

-It's not a long way.

-No! Don't look down!

0:33:510:33:54

'He phoned up his agent.'

0:33:540:33:57

I said, "John is really frightened up here."

0:33:570:34:01

-The poor man's distressed.

-Ohh!

0:34:010:34:04

Michelle? Are you going to call them and find out what's going on?

0:34:050:34:10

-She hung up on me!

-Has she?

-Hello?

-Open the door! I want to get out!

0:34:100:34:14

'So we switched the wheel back on and got John back to earth.'

0:34:140:34:19

I know all about your charity work. I also know you have a dream.

0:34:190:34:23

-I've been told you want to wing walk.

-Yes!

-I'm going to make sure you can wing walk.

-Fantastic!

0:34:230:34:29

-If only you could be there beside me...

-John Wilkins, you are on your own, buddy!

0:34:290:34:36

-Pleased to meet you.

-A week later and John joined these magnificent women in their flying machines.

0:34:390:34:45

-But was he having second thoughts?

-Still up for it?

-I'm terrified!

0:34:450:34:50

I'm only joking. I'm up for that. I might do a few moves of my own.

0:34:510:34:56

And then it was time for 79-year-old John to take to the skies

0:34:560:35:01

for the most breathtaking aerial stunt of them all - a loop the loop!

0:35:010:35:06

I went up in the plane and then the pilot said, "As you seem to be OK with it,

0:35:080:35:13

"we'll give you two loops."

0:35:130:35:15

It went into a loop where you're completely upside down.

0:35:170:35:21

-The G-forces are quite tremendous.

-He's not kidding!

0:35:240:35:27

John experienced an amazing 4 Gs of gravity - more than astronauts face going into space.

0:35:270:35:34

The second time we did a loop,

0:35:380:35:41

we came out of it near the hangar where the family were. Everybody was waving and shouting.

0:35:410:35:47

Being nominated by my daughter and family was an incredible thing

0:35:470:35:53

and I felt overwhelmed by it. So I have been inspired and I shall go on

0:35:530:35:59

to go further and to do more jumps and more abseils this year and into the following years

0:35:590:36:05

until such times as I fall over!

0:36:050:36:08

We're staying up in the air with a look back at how I surprised sky-diving dreamer Karen Martin.

0:36:100:36:16

Last year student manager Karen was treated for breast cancer.

0:36:160:36:20

Her boss Peter remembers how Karen still put others first and never let the condition drag her down.

0:36:200:36:27

To lose your hair publicly in front of 1,300 students

0:36:270:36:31

and still come in and support them and put their needs first is just amazing.

0:36:310:36:36

She's an inspiration to all of us in school.

0:36:360:36:40

'Karen's now been given the all clear and it was time for me to make her sky-diving dream come true.'

0:36:400:36:47

She's arriving. She just pulled up.

0:36:470:36:50

-I hope she's ready for a house guest. ..Hi, Karen.

-Oh, my God!

0:36:500:36:55

-How are you?

-Hello!

0:36:560:36:58

I'm John Barrowman and I'm here to make your dream come true!

0:36:580:37:02

-Get yourself ready. We're going to free fly in a wind tunnel.

-OK!

0:37:020:37:07

'Karen thinks this is the closest she'll get to sky diving. Let's just wait and see.

0:37:070:37:13

'Now there's a knack to this. It's all about the body shape.'

0:37:130:37:17

You want your arms just resting gently...

0:37:170:37:21

'And the signals.' Straighten your legs.

0:37:210:37:24

-Bend your legs.

-..Relax!

0:37:250:37:29

'Look - it's the Pet Shop Boys!

0:37:290:37:32

'Karen's up first.'

0:37:360:37:38

# Reach for the stars... #

0:37:380:37:41

-Awesome!

-# Reach for the stars... #

0:37:420:37:46

Awesome! That was great!

0:37:460:37:49

'Now it's my turn! Look, Karen - I'm flying!'

0:37:500:37:55

-It's amazing.

-'Having wind has never been so much fun!

0:37:550:37:59

'Sorry. That came out wrong.

0:37:590:38:02

-'So, what's the verdict, Karen?'

-Fantastic. Absolutely fantastic.

0:38:020:38:06

-I didn't know where I was half the time.

-Awesome!

0:38:060:38:10

'Karen's had the time of her life, but now I have the big surprise.'

0:38:100:38:15

That's only a rehearsal. There's something else we'll let you do.

0:38:150:38:19

-You're actually going to sky dive.

-Really?! Woo-hoo!

0:38:190:38:24

-You're going to jump out of a plane, baby!

-Oh, my God!

0:38:250:38:29

You are. You certainly are.

0:38:300:38:33

'The day has finally arrived for Karen to live her dream.

0:38:330:38:37

'She'll jump from 13,000 feet and I'm not with her. I was very busy!

0:38:370:38:43

'Karen will jump in tandem with Geoff, an experienced sky diver.'

0:38:430:38:47

We'll freefall at approximately 120 miles an hour.

0:38:470:38:52

This is my lifelong dream. It's something I thought wasn't going to happen. I'm worried about landing.

0:38:520:38:58

I think I'll end up on my bottom and I really want to be graceful.

0:38:580:39:03

# Jump for my love... #

0:39:030:39:06

Since John turned up in my living room, it's been one big rollercoaster. I can't wait.

0:39:060:39:12

OK, here we go, then!

0:39:120:39:15

'Up, up and away!

0:39:150:39:17

'Whoa! What goes up must come down.

0:39:230:39:25

'Whoo-hoo!'

0:39:250:39:28

# Go ahead and jump

0:39:280:39:31

# You might as well jump

0:39:310:39:34

# Go ahead and jump... #

0:39:340:39:37

'Amazing!'

0:39:370:39:39

# Go ahead and jump! #

0:39:390:39:41

'Tonight's The Night to you, too, Karen! That's some dream!'

0:39:410:39:45

Wow!

0:39:460:39:48

Oh, my God!

0:39:480:39:51

Fantastic.

0:39:560:39:57

Well done!

0:39:570:40:00

What are you like first thing in the morning? Bright-eyed, bushy-tailed?

0:40:030:40:08

Or are you more like this?

0:40:080:40:10

CRASH OF THUNDER

0:40:100:40:12

Caffeine, please! Caffeine!

0:40:120:40:16

-LAUGHTER

-Yeah.

0:40:170:40:19

First thing in the morning, I'm like a zombie, but a lot weirder looking.

0:40:190:40:25

The old brain cells are very slow to kick in. So for this next surprise,

0:40:250:40:30

it took just a little while for our dreamer to catch up.

0:40:300:40:34

Andy Stratford is a loving father and husband who lives life to the full,

0:40:340:40:40

but in 2004 his family's world turned upside down after he had a near-fatal motorbike crash.

0:40:400:40:46

Wife Heather and friend Barry explain.

0:40:460:40:48

He was thrown 30, 40 foot in the air and was flown by air ambulance to the Royal London Hospital

0:40:480:40:55

It was a very, very nasty accident.

0:40:550:40:58

We were just devastated.

0:40:580:41:00

Andy was lucky to be alive and was told he may never walk again,

0:41:000:41:05

but after six months in a wheelchair he got back on his feet.

0:41:050:41:08

Andy's always been quite a positive person, but since the accident he has more of a hunger for life

0:41:080:41:15

and he does a lot more for people.

0:41:150:41:18

Not content with just walking again, Andy started running to help those who helped him.

0:41:180:41:24

He's run a couple of half-marathons for the London air ambulance.

0:41:240:41:28

And after his accident, Andy discovered a new passion.

0:41:280:41:32

He loves his golf. He's absolutely mad about his golf.

0:41:320:41:36

Golf's played a big part in his recovery.

0:41:360:41:40

For all the support Andy's given others, Heather wants his dream to come true.

0:41:400:41:46

I've arranged for him to tee off with his all-time hero, legendary golfer Colin Montgomerie.

0:41:460:41:52

It will blow his mind. He's one of the big golfers.

0:41:520:41:56

To be meeting such a legend, he'll be amazed.

0:41:560:42:00

'So imagine this. It's a ridiculous time in the morning and you've just come home from your nightshift.

0:42:000:42:07

'You just want to crawl under your duvet, but there's a camera crew on your doorstep!

0:42:070:42:13

'If your brain isn't already fried, there's a 15-foot-tall John Barrowman shouting at ya!

0:42:130:42:19

'Welcome to Andy's morning.' Andy? Andy Stratford, I'm talking to you.

0:42:190:42:24

-Hi.

-This is a bit weird, isn't it? You're all the way over there

0:42:240:42:29

and I'm on this big screen.

0:42:290:42:32

-I'm John Barrowman and I'm going to make your dream come true.

-Oh, my gosh.

0:42:320:42:37

-I would like to set you up with one of Europe's finest golf players - Colin Montgomerie.

-Oh, my gosh.

0:42:370:42:43

It will be absolutely amazing!

0:42:430:42:46

You probably know there is someone who got in touch with us and that person is...

0:42:460:42:51

You got it - your wife Heather.

0:42:510:42:54

Here she is. Heather, come on out. Oh, I love big hugs.

0:42:540:42:59

So get ready because...

0:42:590:43:01

Fore!

0:43:010:43:03

-Oh, gosh.

-What the heck?!

-Sorry!

0:43:040:43:08

Who cares about the duvet now? Colin Montgomerie's waiting.

0:43:080:43:11

So it's bags in the boot. By the time Andy arrives at the course, the word's out and Colin has a crowd.

0:43:110:43:18

But none of them are getting the VIP treatment.

0:43:180:43:23

We've got Monty behind here. I'm going to be lucky enough to have a one-on-one in a moment.

0:43:230:43:29

Look at all these people. This is amazing.

0:43:290:43:32

-Hi, Andy.

-Nice to meet you.

-Good to see you.

0:43:320:43:36

-I heard the bike's not in a great way. Thank God you're OK.

-Made it.

0:43:360:43:40

I don't like the tiger head cover! I'm not so sure about that!

0:43:400:43:45

-But I do like the Ryder Cup shirt.

-I have a ball from last year as well.

0:43:450:43:50

Well done, you, eh?

0:43:500:43:53

Time to wedge in a golf lesson from Colin. How cool is that?

0:43:530:43:57

If we go weaker with the left and a little bit weaker with the right,

0:43:570:44:02

it's amazing how that club will come through in a squarer way.

0:44:020:44:06

It will feel ridiculously uncomfortable, right?

0:44:060:44:10

But that's much, much better than it was. There you go.

0:44:100:44:15

-There you go. Wow!

-I don't believe it!

-Ha!

0:44:150:44:19

-How the heck is that already...?!

-That's all right, isn't it?

0:44:190:44:23

Wow. It's unbelievable to meet him in person. I won't be washing this hand for a while!

0:44:230:44:29

And the tips. The experience flows through you. I'm all hyped up now.

0:44:290:44:35

All right, Andy, calm down. Now time to work on your putting game.

0:44:350:44:40

Try to make the hole get in the way of this ball.

0:44:400:44:43

Towards the hole.

0:44:430:44:45

Good pace.

0:44:450:44:47

-OK, fine.

-Beginner's luck, that!

0:44:470:44:50

Right, beer? Do you want a drink?

0:44:500:44:53

I just put him under pressure there. To hole it first time - brilliant.

0:44:530:44:58

-Colin, would you do me the pleasure of signing my Ryder Cup ball?

-I will indeed. The Ryder Cup.

0:44:580:45:04

Celtic Manor, 2010. I'll sign anything with that logo on it, I assure you!

0:45:040:45:10

Colin Montgomerie was just...wow!

0:45:100:45:12

All credit to him. He's a real inspiration

0:45:120:45:16

for everybody that's had severe trauma. I wish him all the best.

0:45:160:45:21

I can't believe Colin's signed my Ryder Cup ball from last year.

0:45:210:45:26

It's never going to go anywhere else apart from in my golf pocket!

0:45:260:45:31

Andy, listen, has your game really improved since you had the meeting?

0:45:360:45:41

-Definitely. I haven't lost my lucky ball.

-You still have it!

0:45:410:45:45

I'll leave that up to you there!

0:45:460:45:49

Now also all those people that were on that course, you saw them there

0:45:490:45:54

and they thought they were getting something special, but when you got it, how did it make you feel?

0:45:540:46:02

I'm still reliving the dream now. To be honest, John, it's amazing.

0:46:020:46:06

It all happened so quick. I'll remember it for the rest of my life.

0:46:060:46:10

-Did you ever think that would happen?

-You just don't believe dreams happen to normal people.

0:46:100:46:17

Well, we like making them happen. Heather, Andy puts himself out before everybody else.

0:46:170:46:23

-Was it nice to see him getting something just for himself?

-Oh, it was brilliant, yeah.

0:46:230:46:29

He surprises me constantly so it was great to do that. We can call it quits now!

0:46:290:46:35

No, I think you should keep on going! Keep surprising each other.

0:46:350:46:39

Everybody, he's our king of clubs - Andy Stratford!

0:46:390:46:43

I love musical theatre and we have plenty of West End dreamers who can't wait to experience the magic.

0:46:480:46:54

We're only to happy to make it happen. Here's where the performing dream becomes a dream performance.

0:46:540:47:00

Last year we stopped off in South Wales to surprise Rebecca Bull,

0:47:000:47:04

a teacher who inspires all her pupils.

0:47:040:47:08

Rebecca's great with all her pupils, but with me individually she's boosted my confidence.

0:47:080:47:14

She's always been there for me and made me believe in myself more.

0:47:140:47:18

She goes further with us than any other teacher and most other people as well.

0:47:180:47:23

She believes in us.

0:47:230:47:26

'Rebecca expected a drive-through lunch with her friend Kyle, but she wasn't expecting me!'

0:47:260:47:32

Do you want a surprise with that? Or would you like fries with that?

0:47:320:47:37

I remember getting to the drive-though and...

0:47:370:47:41

'I couldn't really hear what was being said properly.'

0:47:410:47:45

Two double cheeseburger meals...

0:47:450:47:48

I'm sorry? Two burgers, a cake...?

0:47:480:47:51

It's been a stressful day for me!

0:47:530:47:55

I felt very sorry for the person who was taking the order. They hadn't worked there long.

0:47:550:48:01

They needed training and support.

0:48:010:48:04

-We've had 450 cars!

-Kyle, I feel really sorry for him!

0:48:040:48:08

Two double cheeseburger large meals with large fries.

0:48:080:48:13

-And a cake.

-I'll have the cake. I'm not on a diet!

0:48:130:48:17

-We're on the right path here!

-How much is it?

-It's £52...

0:48:170:48:22

And when we got to the window things went completely mad and over the top.

0:48:220:48:28

I think that's the milkshake. Here you go.

0:48:300:48:34

Can I have a different straw?

0:48:340:48:37

-There's a straw.

-Thank you.

-Thank you.

-And your food.

0:48:370:48:41

I'm so sorry. Maybe it's salvageable.

0:48:430:48:47

When I was asked to fill in the questionnaire, there was no way I could destroy his confidence.

0:48:470:48:53

-When you come back, I'll give you free nuggets.

-It was poor.

-But we can't be mean.

0:48:530:48:59

That's my teaching there. I've got to find something positive to say.

0:48:590:49:04

Different.

0:49:040:49:07

Don't put that.

0:49:070:49:09

I put your service was different. Maybe you need more training, but you're a real cheerful chap.

0:49:100:49:16

-I appreciate that. Thanks very much.

-That's wonderful.

0:49:160:49:20

When John Barrowman took off his disguise, it was overwhelming. I couldn't believe he was there.

0:49:200:49:27

I'm actually John Barrowman and I'm here to make your dream come true.

0:49:270:49:32

Oh, my God!

0:49:320:49:35

-This is just a joke?

-And you're in the middle of it.

0:49:360:49:40

I'm going to take you to the Tonight's The Night studio to get you ready and primed

0:49:400:49:46

-to perform for the nation, prime time Saturday night on BBC1.

-Oh, my goodness!

0:49:460:49:53

-And not only that, not by yourself, but with the cast of the show Chicago.

-Oh, my goodness!

0:49:530:49:59

Did you know about this?

0:49:590:50:02

'The day of filming the show was very, very nerve-racking.

0:50:030:50:07

'Once those doors opened, I sort of felt as though I was Velma Kelly and the nerves disappeared.'

0:50:070:50:13

And I loved every single moment.

0:50:130:50:16

# Come on, babe Why don't we paint the town

0:50:160:50:20

# And all that jazz... #

0:50:200:50:23

For the children in school, if Miss Bull can do it, anybody can do it.

0:50:230:50:28

# And all that jazz... #

0:50:280:50:30

In the last year since the show, I've actually directed and performed in Beauty and the Beast,

0:50:300:50:37

which was very successful.

0:50:370:50:39

# But, oh, I love my life

0:50:390:50:43

# And all... #

0:50:430:50:45

Good things do happen and dreams really do come true, cos mine did.

0:50:450:50:50

-# ..ja-a-azz

-That jazz!

-#

0:50:510:50:57

So glad to be of service!

0:50:570:50:59

Now let's stay in the West End for college lecturer Paul Stevens.

0:50:590:51:04

Paul's talent for singing and performance has raised thousands of pounds for local charities,

0:51:040:51:10

but since the tragic death of his son Andrew in Barbados 5 years ago,

0:51:100:51:14

Paul now gives his time to one main charity, Cardiac Risk In The Young, or CRY. Daughter Lucy explains.

0:51:140:51:21

Andrew suddenly died of a heart condition he didn't know about.

0:51:210:51:25

Since then, my dad's thrown himself into his singing,

0:51:250:51:30

using it as his therapy.

0:51:300:51:32

For years, Paul's sung to help others, so it was time to sing for himself.

0:51:320:51:38

His wife Gwen knew which song he'd want to perform for the nation.

0:51:380:51:42

Paul loves Bring Him Home from Les Miserables. It's a very poignant song to him

0:51:420:51:48

and a very emotional song.

0:51:480:51:51

We sent Paul to the Queen's Theatre, home to the world's longest-running musical, Les Miserables.

0:51:510:51:57

It was time to stop, reflect and soak up the atmosphere of the legendary venue

0:51:570:52:03

and get some tips from the star of the show, tenor Alfie Boe.

0:52:030:52:08

-Hello.

-Nice to meet you.

-Paul, very nice to meet you indeed.

0:52:080:52:12

-How are you? You OK?

-Excuse me. I'm overwhelmed, it's all right.

0:52:120:52:17

-Just looking out there.

-It's cool. What do you think?

-Fantastic.

-Give us a bit of a song. Seriously.

0:52:170:52:23

-In front of you?

-Yeah. In front of millions as well!

0:52:230:52:27

# God on high

0:52:290:52:32

# Hear my prayer... #

0:52:320:52:35

I thought Paul's voice was wonderful. Very nice. I think he's got a real natural ability to sing.

0:52:350:52:42

That song always gets them going.

0:52:420:52:45

-It's a great song to sing and I know it's very close to your heart.

-Yeah.

0:52:450:52:50

-I was going to ask you a favour, if I could sing the song with you.

-I'd love it.

-I'll be there, man.

0:52:500:52:56

-Yeah.

-We'll duet with it.

-When I'm crying...

-I'll give you the hard stuff to sing!

-OK.

0:52:560:53:02

-I'll do the easy bit.

-Not too high!

0:53:020:53:05

With Paul's story, it's enough as it is, but with the song as well and the sentiment behind the song

0:53:050:53:12

and what it means for Paul, it's going to be a special moment.

0:53:120:53:17

-#

-God

0:53:260:53:28

-#

-On high

0:53:280:53:35

-#

-Hear my prayer

0:53:350:53:41

-#

-In my need

0:53:420:53:47

-#

-You have always been there...

0:53:470:53:53

Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome Paul Stevens.

0:53:530:53:58

# He is young

0:54:060:54:12

# He's afraid

0:54:120:54:18

# Let him rest

0:54:190:54:24

# Heaven blessed

0:54:240:54:30

-#

-Bring him home

0:54:300:54:36

-#

-Bring him home

0:54:360:54:42

-#

-Bring him home

0:54:420:54:46

# He's like the son I might have known

0:54:480:54:53

# If God had granted me a son

0:54:530:54:57

-#

-The summers die, one by one

0:54:570:55:02

-#
