CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:01:120:01:16

Welcome to the very best of Tonight's The Night!

0:01:240:01:28

-CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

-Everyone has dreams and on this show,

0:01:280:01:31

I actually make your dreams come true.

0:01:310:01:34

From Lands End to John O'Groats and everywhere in between.

0:01:340:01:38

So tonight I'm going to revisit some of my favourite moments from the last two series.

0:01:380:01:42

Plus, just for tonight, some brand new surprises you've never seen before.

0:01:420:01:47

Along the way, I've surprised people in a variety of weird and wonderful disguises,

0:01:470:01:52

including a loud-mouth tourist,

0:01:520:01:54

a hopeless theatre usher, an eccentric Spanish choreographer

0:01:540:01:58

and a grinning idiot in a T-shirt and jeans.

0:01:580:02:02

-Hey, hold on a minute, that's me.

-LAUGHTER

0:02:020:02:06

-So here's what's in our dream line-up tonight.

-APPLAUSE

0:02:060:02:09

'When we make dreams come true, we bring out the biggest names.

0:02:090:02:13

'From Dionne Warwick to Barry Manilow.

0:02:130:02:17

'And tonight you'll find out how this lady got herself a dream duet with Michael Bolton.

0:02:170:02:21

'And when top girl band The Saturdays got a new member.

0:02:230:02:26

'We love all kinds of musical dreams, from military bands to opera.

0:02:270:02:31

'Later we'll remember how one deserving girl came to sing with Dame Kiri Te Kanawa.

0:02:310:02:36

'And there's a never-before-seen surprise for a girl

0:02:360:02:39

'who found herself in a masterclass with Andrea Bocelli.

0:02:390:02:43

'Plus, we've got some of our very best dancing dreams and audience surprises,

0:02:430:02:47

'like the amazing Pearl, our daredevil granny!

0:02:470:02:50

'So let's get this show on the road

0:02:500:02:53

'and take a look back at the time I became a diva detective with jazz hands and a hidden agenda.

0:02:530:02:58

'22-year-old Hayley Ruck is always there for her friends and family,

0:03:000:03:03

'so her best friend Jade thought Hayley deserved a surprise she'd never forget.'

0:03:030:03:08

Hayley is definitely a larger-than-life character

0:03:080:03:12

and she is probably the most reliable person that I know

0:03:120:03:15

and I want everybody else to see that she's deserving, as well.

0:03:150:03:19

'Hayley makes extra cash as an extra,

0:03:190:03:22

'so she's here on set with best friend Jade for my pretend police series.

0:03:220:03:26

'But as the crew get ready to record, the crime-fighting detective becomes a foot-stomping diva.'

0:03:260:03:32

-Thank you. Did you guys get stuff? Are you all right?

-Yeah.

-You want water or anything?

0:03:320:03:36

-No.

-You OK?

-I'm fine. I had a hot chocolate earlier.

0:03:360:03:39

Oh, my... That is awful! What is in there?

0:03:410:03:45

-Can you get John another coffee?

-That's what I think of that coffee.

0:03:450:03:49

'Whoops! Both the coffee and Hayley are completely thrown.

0:03:490:03:53

'She does not know where to look. And now I get all organic on set with some pre-filming meditation.

0:03:530:03:59

'Get ready for this!'

0:03:590:04:01

So I want everyone to feel your chakra.

0:04:010:04:05

All right? Feel your chakra. OK?

0:04:050:04:08

Everybody. Cameramen and everything.

0:04:080:04:12

I am employing everybody. Come on.

0:04:120:04:14

Chakra!

0:04:140:04:17

ALL: Chakra!

0:04:170:04:19

-Are we ready?

-No, no, just a minute.

-SHE LAUGHS

0:04:200:04:24

-Chakra mocha frappe!

-LAUGHTER

0:04:240:04:27

-SHE LAUGHS

-Sorry.

0:04:270:04:29

Brilliant. Are we ready? Everybody, one more time, and then you end with a leap, right?

0:04:290:04:34

Totally focused. Here we go.

0:04:340:04:37

ALL: Chakra mocha frappe!

0:04:380:04:40

-Oh.

-Brilliant.

-I've lost the...

-John, set?

0:04:400:04:43

-Are you ready?

-Not ready yet. Just a minute. Ready?

0:04:430:04:46

-Now I'm ready.

-OK.

0:04:470:04:50

'Having seen my temperamental side, Hayley's come up with an extreme way to stop her giggles during filming.'

0:04:500:04:55

Puppies dying, puppies dying. I'm thinking about puppies dying so it doesn't make me laugh. Puppies.

0:04:550:05:01

Puppies dying. To get my laughter out.

0:05:010:05:03

-'Really, Hayley?'

-Puppies dying, puppies dying. That dog over there getting shot.

0:05:030:05:07

-'Oh, no!'

-LAUGHTER

0:05:070:05:11

-Cos I get the giggles really bad.

-'Don't crack a smile.'

0:05:110:05:15

I'm sorry. I'm sorry.

0:05:150:05:17

'How will Hayley cope when I start picking on our elderly actress?'

0:05:170:05:21

We're going to have to go...

0:05:210:05:23

While we're waiting, do you mind if we just go sit and talk about the next bit?

0:05:230:05:28

Cos you guys are going to be right here. Come on over.

0:05:280:05:31

Do you mind if we have this seat, love?

0:05:310:05:34

Do you mind? All right, dear, come on. Go on. There you go. You sit there.

0:05:340:05:38

-No, it's all right.

-Come on.

-No, do you want to sit here?

0:05:380:05:41

-I don't...

-She's all right. Don't worry.

0:05:410:05:44

So, with the, erm...

0:05:440:05:48

With everything that goes on and all that stuff, you were talking about...

0:05:480:05:52

'Pushing out a pensioner may have been the final straw.

0:05:520:05:55

'I think it's time to tell Hayley the real story and show her the real me.'

0:05:550:05:59

OK, fine, fine. You know what? Are you cool with this?

0:05:590:06:02

-Like what I said about being organic and natural?

-Yeah.

-I'm just going to ad-lib something.

-OK.

-OK.

0:06:020:06:08

Because actually, I am John Barrowman

0:06:080:06:10

and I'm from BBC One's Tonight's The Night

0:06:100:06:13

and I'm going to make your dream come true, because this is all a big set-up.

0:06:130:06:17

You are the star of this show, not me.

0:06:170:06:19

-Yeah.

-What the hell?

0:06:190:06:22

-No.

-Yes!

0:06:220:06:24

Yes. And all the stuff I already know about you... I'm really not that mean to old people.

0:06:240:06:29

She's OK. See? She's fine.

0:06:290:06:32

How would you like to perform to the nation

0:06:320:06:35

and a big live audience,

0:06:350:06:38

prime time Saturday night on Tonight's The Night?

0:06:380:06:41

-I would love to, please.

-You would?

0:06:410:06:44

-That would be nice.

-Awesome!

-SHE LAUGHS

0:06:440:06:46

Oh, my God! I thought you were really mean.

0:06:460:06:51

LAUGHTER

0:06:510:06:54

I was really upset because I really liked you.

0:06:540:06:58

LAUGHTER

0:06:580:07:01

Listen, it's about making your dream come true

0:07:010:07:04

and I know you love to sing

0:07:040:07:06

and I know that you've been supportive of your family

0:07:060:07:09

and your dad and everything that you've been through

0:07:090:07:12

and we're going to make that dream come true and it's all thanks to your friend Jade.

0:07:120:07:16

'So Hayley went from a background extra to a centre-stage star when she became the envy of millions

0:07:160:07:21

'as she sang with the huge boy band The Wanted.'

0:07:210:07:24

# Praying won't do it, hating won't do it

0:07:240:07:28

# Drinking won't do it, fighting won't knock you out

0:07:280:07:32

# Of my head

0:07:340:07:35

# Hiding won't hide it, smiling won't hide it

0:07:380:07:42

# Like I ain't tried it, everyone's tried it now

0:07:420:07:46

# And failed somehow

0:07:480:07:50

# So when you gonna let me, when you gonna let me out?

0:07:520:07:57

# Out

0:07:580:07:59

ALL: # And if you know

0:07:590:08:01

# How do you get up from an all time low?

0:08:010:08:04

# I'm in pieces, it seems like peace is

0:08:040:08:09

# The only think I'll never know

0:08:090:08:11

# How do you get up, get out?

0:08:110:08:14

Please give it up for Miss Hayley Ruck!

0:08:140:08:18

CHEERING

0:08:180:08:20

# Cos driving won't do it, flying won't do it

0:08:210:08:25

# Denying won't do it, crying won't drown it out

0:08:250:08:30

# What you said

0:08:310:08:35

BOTH: # When I'm standing on the yellow line

0:08:350:08:37

# Waiting at the station

0:08:370:08:39

# Or I'm late for work, a vital presentation

0:08:390:08:43

# If you call me now, though, without reservation

0:08:430:08:46

# I would try to break through

0:08:460:08:49

ALL: # But if you know

0:08:490:08:51

# How do you get up from an all time low?

0:08:510:08:54

# I'm in pieces, it seems like peace is

0:08:540:08:58

# The only think I'll never know

0:08:580:09:02

# How do you get up from an all time low?

0:09:020:09:05

# Low, low, low, low, low low, low

0:09:050:09:10

# Can you hear me?

0:09:100:09:12

# Low, low, low, low, low, low, low

0:09:120:09:17

# And if you know

0:09:180:09:20

# How do you get up from an all time low?

0:09:200:09:23

# I'm in pieces, it seems like peace is

0:09:230:09:27

# The only think I'll never know

0:09:270:09:30

# How do you get up from an all time low?

0:09:300:09:33

# I can't even find a place to start

0:09:330:09:38

# How do I choose between my head and heart?

0:09:380:09:41

# Till it ceases I'll never know

0:09:410:09:45

# How do you get up from an all time low?

0:09:450:09:49

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:09:490:09:52

'Smooches and kisses? Yeah, that's what we do.'

0:09:520:09:56

Here I put together big dreams with big starts.

0:09:570:10:00

Want a singing lesson from Dolly Parton? Done.

0:10:000:10:03

Fancy duet with Dionne Warwick? Piece of cake!

0:10:030:10:05

As long as you deserve it, I deliver it.

0:10:050:10:08

And how does it feel to suddenly find yourself up close and personal with your idol?

0:10:080:10:12

-Well, here's flight attendant Carol McIntyre to spill the beans.

-APPLAUSE

0:10:120:10:16

'Last year, I transformed into a toothy Ted and completely hopeless air steward

0:10:160:10:21

'to surprise cabin manager Carol McIntyre.

0:10:210:10:24

'Her husband Colin knows she's swapped her showbiz dreams for time with her family.'

0:10:240:10:28

I just feel deep down in my heart that it's an opportunity

0:10:280:10:32

that she's put aside and sacrificed to be with me.

0:10:320:10:36

To help try and make her wish come true

0:10:360:10:39

through this programme is absolutely fantastic for me

0:10:390:10:42

because it's a way for me to give back to Carol that fantastic wish that really money can't buy.

0:10:420:10:48

On the day of the hit, I was told by my boss and by my husband Colin

0:10:480:10:53

I was presenting a DVD for the airline.

0:10:530:10:56

So when I actually got to the airport and I saw the camera crew there,

0:10:560:11:00

I just thought it was a normal DVD company.

0:11:000:11:02

I'm now going to hand you over to the boys who are going to carry out the manual demonstration.

0:11:020:11:07

James will read and Francis will carry out the demonstration.

0:11:070:11:10

It wasn't until we had the incident with the lifejackets

0:11:100:11:13

that I thought, "Something is not right here".

0:11:130:11:16

Place it over your head, pass this strap around your waist...

0:11:160:11:19

LAUGHTER

0:11:190:11:22

THEY LAUGH

0:11:240:11:27

-Take my glasses off!

-Sorry. Take your...

0:11:270:11:30

People ask me, "How did you not recognise him?"

0:11:300:11:32

But in the context of the whole scenario, no, I didn't recognise him.

0:11:320:11:36

-Please pull the red toggle sharply downward...

-AIR HISSES

0:11:360:11:39

-Ohh!

-LAUGHTER

0:11:390:11:43

SHE LAUGHS

0:11:430:11:45

-You...

-If the lifejacket fails to inflate or needs topping up,

0:11:450:11:50

please blow into this tube.

0:11:500:11:52

We need to stop this.

0:11:520:11:56

He then proceeded to take the wig off and the goofy teeth out

0:11:560:12:00

and I thought, "Oh, my goodness".

0:12:000:12:03

-I'm actually...

-No, I don't believe it.

-..John Barrowman...

0:12:030:12:06

-SHE LAUGHS

-..from BBC One's Tonight's The Night

0:12:060:12:08

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

0:12:080:12:11

-Oh, my God!

-SHE LAUGHS

0:12:110:12:15

My mind was racing at this point. There was a thousand questions going through my head.

0:12:150:12:20

-I thought I...

-I was very surprised that all my work colleagues, family and friends

0:12:200:12:25

managed to keep this a huge secret from me.

0:12:250:12:27

Not once did anybody let anything slip out,

0:12:270:12:29

so ten out of ten for all those folks involved.

0:12:290:12:33

# You are the wind beneath my wings

0:12:330:12:38

When I went along for the rehearsal, there was a gentleman standing by the piano

0:12:390:12:44

and I looked and I thought, "It can't be him". It was Michael Bolton.

0:12:440:12:47

-Hi, Carol.

-He was genuine, he was so kind.

0:12:470:12:50

What an experience. What a moment that was for me.

0:12:500:12:53

The day of the show, the whole atmosphere was electric.

0:12:530:12:56

Friends and family were going to be coming into the studio.

0:12:560:12:59

As soon as the doors opened, the nerves seemed to disappear and it just felt as if I was at home.

0:12:590:13:05

BOTH: # Tell me, how am I supposed to live without you?

0:13:050:13:12

# Now that I've been loving you so long

0:13:130:13:19

I never thought I would be able to stand up there and sing in front of millions of people.

0:13:190:13:23

It boosted my confidence. It gave me a belief in myself

0:13:230:13:27

that I thought had gone 20-odd years ago.

0:13:270:13:30

For anyone who has a dream, don't give up on it.

0:13:300:13:32

Grasp it with both hands. I did. I never thought in a million years

0:13:320:13:36

I would be able to walk on a stage, sing in front of millions of people

0:13:360:13:41

and sing with Michael Bolton. What an experience and one I'll never forget.

0:13:410:13:46

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:13:460:13:49

'What happens when you combine a taxi, a missing bag and a pair of my pants?

0:13:510:13:55

'It's either my average Saturday night or a priceless surprise on 21-year-old Connie Nash.

0:13:550:14:00

'She's a born performer and Mum Rosemary is her biggest fan.'

0:14:000:14:03

Singing has always been her life.

0:14:030:14:05

She comes and sings to the old people in the village for us,

0:14:050:14:08

she'll sing anywhere. Give her a stage and a microphone and she's away.

0:14:080:14:12

'But when Connie's not singing, she's busy helping Mum, who has health problems.

0:14:120:14:16

'Connie runs the house and makes sure the family have everything they need.'

0:14:160:14:20

She's just my brick. She's just there for me.

0:14:200:14:24

'And it's not just her family she's there for.

0:14:240:14:26

'Her best friend Joanna says Connie is the first person her friends will turn to in their hour of need.'

0:14:260:14:32

Connie is an amazing friend cos she's so selfless.

0:14:320:14:35

She would do anything for anyone at any time. She's an amazing person.

0:14:350:14:40

'Connie's heading into town with best friend Joanna.

0:14:410:14:44

'But she has no idea this cab is rigged with hidden cameras

0:14:440:14:47

'and I'm watching their every move.

0:14:470:14:49

'Inside the cab, I've planted my man bag which is filled with a few surprises.'

0:14:490:14:55

-What's that at the back? Is that yours?

-Oh, I don't know.

0:14:550:14:58

Can you open it for us and see what's happening? Is there a name or a telephone number or something?

0:14:580:15:04

Have you got his number there? THEY LAUGH

0:15:040:15:06

-'Hey, watch my lucky pants!'

-It's ringing.

0:15:060:15:09

-Hello?

-Hello, who's this?

-Hello, my name's Connie. I'm in the taxi and I've just found your bag

0:15:090:15:14

-and your phone.

-Ohh, thank you so much!

0:15:140:15:18

I left it. I can't believe that I've actually got out of a taxi and left it.

0:15:180:15:22

-OK.

-Is there any way you could drop it off to me?

0:15:220:15:25

-I'll cover your fare, I'll do all that.

-Yeah, cool. If we just take your address.

0:15:250:15:29

-Who's going to pay, you or them?

-Them.

0:15:290:15:31

-Oh, that's handy, isn't it?

-I'm over at Guildford Castle.

0:15:310:15:35

-Did he drop you there about an hour ago?

-Yeah.

-Is it the Royal Oak?

0:15:350:15:38

-The Royal Oak.

-That's brilliant, yeah. Thank you!

-Thank you! Bye!

-Bye!

0:15:380:15:43

-Oh, thank you very much.

-He's lovely! He's American.

-'Connie has no idea it's me calling.'

0:15:430:15:47

-THEY LAUGH

-'Until she starts snooping in my wallet!'

0:15:470:15:51

That can't be true!

0:15:510:15:54

-That's John Barrowman.

-THEY SCREAM

0:15:560:15:59

-As if it's John Barrowman!

-Who is it?

0:15:590:16:01

-I just spoke to John Barrowman on the phone!

-Who's he?

0:16:010:16:04

-He's famous!

-Famous for what?

-Musical theatre!

0:16:040:16:08

'So what part of my life are they really interested in?'

0:16:080:16:11

John Barrowman's pants! John Barrowman's pants!

0:16:110:16:14

-We need a picture!

-LAUGHTER

0:16:140:16:16

-They're taking pictures with my pants.

-HE LAUGHS

0:16:160:16:19

They're taking pictures with my pants!

0:16:190:16:22

This is brilliant!

0:16:220:16:24

He's, like, really famous.

0:16:240:16:26

Absolutely genius.

0:16:260:16:30

-As if you were wearing John Barrowman's sunglasses just now!

-THEY SCREAM

0:16:310:16:35

They put my sunglasses on.

0:16:350:16:37

-Are we dropping it off now?

-Can we go there first?

-I think we're nearly there.

0:16:370:16:41

Are we going to meet John Barrowman?

0:16:410:16:44

-SHE SCREAMS

-Oh, my God!

0:16:440:16:48

I'm so pleased! Thank you so much!

0:16:480:16:51

Connie, I'm John Barrowman from Tonight's The Night. I'm here to make your dream come true.

0:16:510:16:55

I know that you put on my sunglasses. You took pictures with my pants.

0:16:550:17:00

-THEY LAUGH

-You're so busted!

0:17:000:17:04

-You're so busted! This has all been a set-up.

-OK.

0:17:040:17:09

Because I know that you're a pillar of strength for your family

0:17:090:17:14

and you help out your mother in particular.

0:17:140:17:17

We know you have a dream to sing in front of millions of people. Yes?

0:17:170:17:21

-Yes.

-So would you like to come to the Tonight's The Night studio?

-Yes, please.

-Good.

0:17:210:17:25

We will get you up on the Tonight's The Night stage and you can sing to the nation.

0:17:250:17:30

-Awesome?

-Yes! Thank you so much!

-You're welcome.

'There's still loads more amazing dreams and surprises on the way,

0:20:040:20:07

'including a show-stopping performance from a truly giving girl and Dame Kiri Te Kanawa.

0:20:070:20:13

'A daredevil granny takes to the skies.

0:20:130:20:16

'And we remember some dancing dreams with Diversity and a trip to Bollywood.'

0:20:160:20:22

One of my favourite bits of the show is when I get to surprise someone in the studio audience.

0:20:230:20:28

Most people think they're here to watch a show, but for a lucky few,

0:20:280:20:32

they're not just here to be entertained, they are the entertainment.

0:20:320:20:36

Does anybody recognise these shoes?

0:20:370:20:40

No? Anybody? Well, it's you, Linda Baker.

0:20:400:20:44

-Ohh.

-Ohh!

-LAUGHTER

0:20:440:20:47

-Linda.

-Hello.

-Come with me. Come on.

0:20:470:20:50

APPLAUSE

0:20:500:20:53

We're about to make all your dreams come true. You work with special needs children in Dorset.

0:21:000:21:05

-How rewarding is that?

-It's brilliant. Every day is just lovely. Really, really rewarding.

0:21:050:21:12

-Now, it's been your dream to dance. Is that right?

-Yes.

0:21:120:21:16

I know that and I hear you're quite good.

0:21:160:21:19

-Not bad.

-Not bad. Your friends and family think you deserve

0:21:190:21:23

a dream of becoming a ballroom bombshell.

0:21:230:21:26

And we're going to make sure that happens tonight.

0:21:260:21:29

-You ready for that?

-OK.

-But you can't do it alone.

-No.

0:21:290:21:32

Because every foxy foxtrotter needs a partner.

0:21:320:21:35

And Linda, stay calm, here he is, last year's Strictly Come Dancing champion, Artem Chigvintsev!

0:21:350:21:41

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:21:410:21:44

-Artem.

-Yeah.

-Can you whip Linda into shape?

-Of course, absolutely.

0:21:560:22:01

-Good.

-Not a problem.

-That's what I like, positive.

0:22:010:22:04

Is there a phrase or a piece of advice you can give her right now

0:22:040:22:07

that's going to help and would make it a lot easier?

0:22:070:22:10

-Don't be nervous. Good luck. And just enjoy it.

-OK.

0:22:100:22:15

I think "move your feet" would be a good one.

0:22:150:22:18

-LAUGHTER

-All right, Artem, Linda, you've got 40 minutes

0:22:180:22:23

to perfect your routine.

0:22:230:22:25

So, guys, go ahead, get practising and we will catch up with you in a while.

0:22:250:22:29

Ladies and gentlemen, Artem and our very surprised dreamer, Linda Baker!

-It's you, Pearl!

-SHE SCREAMS

0:23:320:23:36

APPLAUSE

0:23:360:23:39

Pearl...

0:23:440:23:46

-I don't want to talk into it.

-What? Are you excited? You have to talk into it.

0:23:470:23:52

No-one will hear you if you don't. Are you shocked?

0:23:520:23:56

-A bit?

-LAUGHTER

0:23:570:24:00

Pearl's not going to talk. Listen, Pearl, your friends and family have said you're the support of them,

0:24:000:24:06

you're their backbone, you've been extremely supportive when your husband Peter was ill.

0:24:060:24:12

You were the tower of strength.

0:24:120:24:15

And you've always wanted to do something spectacular

0:24:150:24:19

for your grandchildren, right?

0:24:190:24:21

-Yeah? You're still not going to talk, are you?

-LAUGHTER

0:24:210:24:25

-I think she's so shocked.

-Which is unusual for me.

0:24:250:24:28

LAUGHTER AND APPLAUSE

0:24:280:24:31

She says it's unusual for her because she talks for Scotland.

0:24:330:24:38

-Well, talk now! It's television!

-LAUGHTER

0:24:380:24:41

Anyway, I hope you have nerves of steel and pants of iron because in the next 40 minutes,

0:24:410:24:47

your dream could come true. Your mission,

0:24:470:24:50

should you choose to accept it, is...

0:24:500:24:54

First, you'll be hoisted by crane 120 feet in the air.

0:24:540:24:57

Once at the top, you'll be carefully attached to a cable

0:24:570:25:01

-before hurtling 800 feet across the River Clyde!

-CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:25:010:25:05

Where you will reach speeds of over 40 miles per hour!

0:25:050:25:09

Pearl, you do this

0:25:110:25:14

and your grandchildren's grandchildren's grandchildren will be talking about it forever!

0:25:140:25:19

But you don't have to decide now. Why don't you go with the lovely Randal

0:25:190:25:23

and he's going to take you to check it all out and see how you feel and we will check back with Pearl later.

0:25:230:25:29

Ladies and gentlemen, give it up for Pearl!

0:25:290:25:33

'She didn't talk much, but actions speak louder than words. Check this out.'

0:25:330:25:37

Pearl, how are you?

0:25:370:25:40

-Are you speaking to me?

-Yeah.

0:25:400:25:42

Your name's Pearl, I'm speaking to you, honey.

0:25:420:25:45

-Right. I'm fine.

-You're fine? OK.

0:25:450:25:48

Listen, I'd love to be up there with you.

0:25:480:25:50

-I wish you were, as well.

-That's a lie. There's no way you're getting me up there!

0:25:500:25:55

-No, no.

-Pearl, do you realise,

0:25:550:25:59

you're going to be one of the oldest people

0:25:590:26:01

to zip wire ever across the River Clyde?

0:26:010:26:05

-Wowwy!

-LAUGHTER

0:26:050:26:08

-Am I getting paid for this?

-No, you're not getting paid for it!

-It's a dream come true!

-Oh, right, sorry.

-APPLAUSE

0:26:130:26:16

-That's my dream.

-OK. Are you ready, Pearl?

0:26:160:26:22

-Yes!

-LAUGHTER

0:26:230:26:25

-Yes!

-I think. I think.

0:26:250:26:28

-You think?

-I think.

-Pearl, don't think.

0:26:280:26:32

-LAUGHTER

-It's the only time I'll ever say this to somebody. Just jump!

0:26:320:26:36

-LAUGHTER

-All right, studio,

0:26:360:26:39

start the countdown!

0:26:390:26:41

ALL: Three! Two! One!

0:26:410:26:45

Go, Pearl!

0:26:450:26:47

Whoo!

0:26:520:26:54

Amazing!

0:26:550:26:57

That's amazing!

'Let's see Pearl in action again.'

0:27:220:27:24

Whoo!

0:27:240:27:26

Whoo!

0:27:310:27:33

Pearl, I'm right behind you. I'll give you a hand down.

0:27:340:27:38

Oh, right! I'm going to go up again.

0:27:380:27:40

-I'm coming down again!

-LAUGHTER

0:27:400:27:43

APPLAUSE

0:27:430:27:45

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:27:470:27:50

That was amazing! Let me just take the hat off you. That'll be easier.

0:27:530:27:57

Then you can put your glasses on. There go you.

0:27:570:28:00

-Let me just put that down.

-Is my hair all right?

0:28:000:28:02

-Yep.

-LAUGHTER

0:28:020:28:05

-Looks brilliant!

-Oh!

-Here are your grandkids. Bring them on in.

0:28:050:28:09

-Come on in, guys!

-CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:28:090:28:11

Give them a big cuddle.

0:28:140:28:16

-How did it feel really?

-Fabulous! You know, the only thing,

0:28:220:28:25

I was facing that way and I couldn't turn to face out this way.

0:28:250:28:30

-Do it again?

-Aye, nee bother.

-LAUGHTER

0:28:300:28:33

Listen, this has been absolutely incredible, it's amazing, thank you.

0:28:330:28:37

We are glad to make this kind of dream come true.

0:28:370:28:40

You kids are going to remember it for a long time, aren't you?

0:28:400:28:44

Yeah? What is it like to have a stunt gran?

0:28:440:28:47

-Brilliant.

-Do you love her?

-Yeah.

-That's it, they love their gran

0:28:470:28:51

-and she'll never want to travel by dial-a-ride ever again.

0:28:510:28:55

Ladies and gentlemen, give it up for our resident Tonight's The Night stunt woman, Pearl Manson!

'Still to come, for the very first time,

0:29:030:29:05

0:29:050:29:09

'We remember when this dance-crazy teenager got the chance to perform with his heroes, Diversity.

0:29:100:29:16

'And Tonight's The Night goes Bollywood.'

0:29:160:29:19

This show can go from the dance floor to the opera house in a heartbeat.

0:29:200:29:24

Classy songs deserve classy performances

0:29:240:29:26

and one of the most memorable was when a young woman from Somerset

0:29:260:29:30

duetted with soprano Dame Kiri Te Kanawa.

0:29:300:29:32

I'm at the Royal Bath and West Show to surprise Teresa, our teenage fundraiser.

0:29:360:29:40

She has no idea we're here to make her dreams come true.

0:29:400:29:44

'29-year-old Teresa De Roberto from Somerset is at the show to sing for the Royal British Legion.

0:29:440:29:49

'According to her best friend Hannah, it's just one of the many charity gigs she does every year.'

0:29:490:29:55

Teresa lives for singing and if she can sing and do work for charity

0:29:550:29:59

at the same time then it's perfect for her.

0:29:590:30:01

'Teresa's been told when she finishes there will be a photo call with the poppy mascot.

0:30:010:30:06

'But she has no idea that it's going to be me inside the costume!'

0:30:060:30:10

OK, I'm ready to go in. Poppy power.

0:30:100:30:14

SHE SINGS NESSUN DORMA

0:30:140:30:17

'Teresa's finished and here I come!

0:30:220:30:25

'Oh, this is really a long way from Captain Jack.'

APPLAUSE

0:30:280:30:30

-Bravo!

-'This is one hot and sweaty costume.

0:30:320:30:36

'It's stuck to me! I'll have to get Teresa to help me get it off.'

0:30:360:30:39

I'm not really a mascot, I'm John Barrowman from BBC One's Tonight's The Night

0:30:390:30:44

-Yeah!

-SHE LAUGHS

0:31:020:31:05

I tell you, the things I do for showbiz!

0:31:050:31:08

Hey! This young lady does an incredible amount for charity

0:31:080:31:14

in her local area and she's what I would call a selfless young lady.

0:31:140:31:19

She is always offered to get paid for the performances and things and you do what? Tell us.

0:31:190:31:25

I just do it for free cos I love it.

0:31:250:31:27

If she gets money, she gives it back to the community or the charities.

0:31:270:31:32

But I've got a surprise for you,

0:31:320:31:34

because you're going to be singing with Dame Kiri Te Kanawa.

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:34:210:34:24

'Now that's what I call a show-stopper.'

0:34:240:34:27

For this next surprise, myself and the Tonight's The Night team

0:34:290:34:32

used what we know best, the TV screen.

0:34:320:34:35

-Hey! Not too close. We're in HD, OK?

-LAUGHTER

0:34:350:34:40

I was with a bunch of TV professionals putting on a TV show in a TV shop.

0:34:400:34:44

-What could possibly go wrong? Apart from everything!

-APPLAUSE

0:34:440:34:50

'Somerset girl Sarah Lowry has come to London today

0:34:550:34:58

'for a spot of shopping with her mum and Nana Rose.'

0:34:580:35:01

Or so she thinks. Now, her mum and her nan are in on this

0:35:020:35:05

and are waiting round the corner for our call so we can get started.

0:35:050:35:09

'23-year-old Sarah works in a care home and lives with her mum and nana in Yeovil.

0:35:090:35:14

'And the whole family shares a passion for singing.'

0:35:140:35:17

If I'm really down in the dumps or stressed out,

0:35:170:35:21

she'll start singing and that just gives me a lift.

0:35:210:35:26

I get very emotional. It makes me cry but I try not to because I know she'll call me a wimp if she sees me.

0:35:260:35:32

'Complications at birth and cerebral palsy

0:35:320:35:35

'meant Sarah's first 18 years were spent in and out of hospital having major surgery,

0:35:350:35:40

'so she missed out on things other children take for granted.'

0:35:400:35:44

She couldn't go to things like ballet lessons like little girls do.

0:35:440:35:47

She couldn't sit on the beach because she was always in plaster.

0:35:470:35:50

She could never ride a bike.

0:35:500:35:53

Sarah never really complained about what she was going through.

0:35:530:35:57

You never hear Sarah talk about her problems.

0:35:570:36:01

And most of the people don't even know that she's been in hospital like she has.

0:36:010:36:05

'Despite her own challenges, Sarah volunteers at a hospice and helps to run the local youth theatre group.

0:36:050:36:11

'So to recognise her achievements, Mum and Nana Rose would like me

0:36:110:36:14

'to arrange for Sarah to sing live in the studio. But that's not all.

0:36:140:36:19

'I've set up a masterclass from opera legend Andrea Bocelli for tips on how to wow the nation.'

0:36:190:36:25

Seeing Sarah perform on Tonight's The Night

0:36:250:36:28

will make me the proudest grandmother in the world.

0:36:280:36:32

'Back in London, Sarah thinks Mum and Nana are taking her shopping for a new television. But guess what?

0:36:330:36:38

'We've filled the store with secret cameras. In true Tonight's The Night fashion

0:36:380:36:43

I'm going to spice things up and turn the cameras around on Sarah. Make that dream come true.

0:36:430:36:48

'When Sarah arrives, these screens will be playing my new cookery show, which is fake,

0:36:480:36:53

'and we'll have a special message for her. But before we even finish setting up,

0:36:530:36:57

'Sarah and her family arrive and we have to make a quick exit to avoid blowing the surprise.'

0:36:570:37:02

This is so by the skin of our teeth. Fabulous!

0:37:020:37:05

'But things are definitely not fabulous when some of the screens pack up!'

0:37:050:37:09

We're going, here we go! TV's are on. Well, some of them are.

0:37:090:37:13

'And then we accidentally put the Tonight's The Night logo on two of the screens.'

0:37:130:37:17

Oh, my goodness. It showed Tonight's The Night on the screen.

0:37:170:37:20

'Just as well none of us work in television, then. Oh, we do. D'oh!'

0:37:200:37:25

This is a bit of a disaster. 'Having almost blown it,

0:37:250:37:28

'we send in one of our team to make sure we get the show back on the road.' Here we go.

0:37:280:37:32

'My cookery programme containing Sarah's surprise message is now ready to go. Move over Ramsay!'

0:37:320:37:37

"Turn Up The Heat is a new cookery show

0:37:370:37:39

"with all the right ingredients to spice up your Saturday night.

0:37:390:37:43

"In our first show I travel to Somerset to meet an activities coordinator.

0:37:430:37:48

"This special young woman teaches at her local theatre group.

0:37:480:37:51

"She also finds time to look after her dog, Monty, and her two cats, Teddy Bear and Oliver. Aw! Meow!

0:37:510:37:58

"Woof!" She's clueing into it. "I'm talking about you, Sarah Lowry!

0:37:580:38:04

"Yes, it's you! Sarah Lowry!"

0:38:040:38:06

OK, let's go do the hit. Come on over, guys. "To make your dreams come true!"

0:38:060:38:10

-That's right, Sarah, it's me, John Barrowman. How are you?

-I'm all right, thank you.

0:38:100:38:15

I'm from BBC One's Tonight's The Night and I'm here to make your dream come true.

0:38:150:38:19

I know that you do an incredible amount for your friends and your family.

0:38:190:38:23

I also know you're a very brave young lady and that your dream

0:38:230:38:26

is to sing on the big stage in front of millions of people. And we're going to let you do that.

0:38:260:38:32

We're going to take you to the Tonight's The Night studio and you are going to sing for the nation.

0:38:320:38:38

But before we do that, we've got a very special treat for you.

0:38:380:38:42

We're sending you to go meet up with...Andrea Bocelli!

0:38:420:38:47

-Oh, really?

-Unbelievable!

0:38:470:38:50

-Oh, my God, thank you so much!

-You're very welcome.

0:38:500:38:53

Can I take that big smile on your face as a thumbs-up that you're going to go and...

0:38:530:38:59

-Yes!

-Yes, you are! Awesome! Whoo!

0:38:590:39:03

The surprise is just amazing. I'm still coming down from that. It just doesn't seem real right now.

0:39:030:39:09

'A week later and Sarah is back in London to get some singing tips from her opera idol, Andrea Bocelli.'

0:39:120:39:18

-Hello.

-Hello.

-Pleased to meet you.

-Hi, nice to meet you. How are you?

-I'm very well, thank you.

0:39:180:39:23

Meeting Andrea Bocelli was just a dream come true.

0:39:230:39:27

It was amazing. I couldn't have asked for anything better.

0:39:270:39:30

-I know that you're a singer.

-Yes.

0:39:300:39:33

-And you love music.

-I do.

0:39:330:39:36

I'm happy for you because it's a beautiful thing, no?

0:39:360:39:38

-He's very good-looking. He's lovely.

-LAUGHTER

0:39:380:39:42

# There's a time for us

0:39:420:39:49

# A place and time for us

0:39:500:39:55

-You sing very well. Congratulations.

-Thank you.

0:39:550:39:58

-And you have also a voice very strong.

-Thank you.

0:39:580:40:02

I'm surprised. SHE LAUGHS The only advice that I can give you

0:40:020:40:06

in a few words, to study, to study, to study.

0:40:060:40:11

When I sang in front of him, I was hoping that I was going to remember the words,

0:40:110:40:15

and that I was going to sing the right notes.

0:40:150:40:17

# Hold my hand

0:40:170:40:19

In case in future you will have doubt, questions, for just improve your voice,

0:40:190:40:26

-call me, OK?

-I will do, thank you very much.

Great!

0:40:340:40:36

Meeting one of my idols has been the most amazing experience ever.

I don't think I'll ever forget it, it will always be there.

0:40:400:40:43

APPLAUSE

0:40:430:40:46

-Hi, Mum, hi, Nana.

-I've got a tissue ready.

-You've got a tissue ready?

0:40:480:40:52

Don't worry cos I brought extras for you, just in case.

0:40:520:40:55

Now, listen, Mum, Sarah, she was so surprised. Did she get over the shock of the surprise?

0:40:550:41:01

No. I think she's still shocked, actually. She's still on a high.

0:41:010:41:05

And how was it when she met Andrea Bocelli? Did she talk about it for ages?

0:41:050:41:10

She did, she's still talking about it.

0:41:100:41:13

-Well, Nana Rose, are you excited about this?

-Very excited.

0:41:130:41:16

-Nervous?

-Nervous. I'm shaking like a jelly.

0:41:160:41:19

LAUGHTER

0:41:190:41:22

-I love a bit of jelly.

-LAUGHTER

0:41:220:41:27

Well, here we go. Sarah has met the legend, she's had the lessons and she's done the homework.

0:41:270:41:34

So now all that remains is to make the dream a reality.

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:43:550:43:59

You made me go! I'm done!

0:44:180:44:21

I've completely gone. I sat and watched your mum and your nana and I have completely gone.

0:44:210:44:26

-So this is what you've dreamed of for such a long time.

-I have.

0:44:260:44:31

Now that it has come true... I can't even talk!

0:44:310:44:35

-AUDIENCE: Aww!

-How does it make you feel?

0:44:350:44:37

Absolutely amazing.

0:44:370:44:40

Mum and Nana, was it worth a trip to the TV shop?

0:44:400:44:45

Definitely. I think I've been forgiven. THEY LAUGH

0:44:450:44:49

And did you enjoy watching today?

0:44:490:44:52

-Loved every minute of it.

-Good. Tissues gone?

0:44:520:44:54

-They're still here.

-They're still here. I'm going to come and borrow them.

0:44:540:44:59

-Ladies and gentlemen, Sarah Lowry!

-CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:44:590:45:03

I love to dance, with a little bit of a swivel of the hips,

0:45:080:45:12

and a kick-ball-change, and a turn, turn, turn,

0:45:120:45:15

and a lunge! Oh! Ow!

0:45:150:45:17

-All right, I just threw that together over the last few weeks.

-CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:45:170:45:22

Thank you! Listen, I'm not alone. There are plenty of dance dreamers out there,

0:45:220:45:27

and when they hit this stage, the results can be spectacular.

0:45:270:45:30

Especially when dance group Diversity is involved.

0:45:300:45:33

Ow!

0:45:330:45:36

'Last year I went to Wolverhampton to surprise self-taught dancer Mitchell McDonald.

0:45:360:45:40

'A few years ago, Mitchell's world was shattered when his dad died in a road traffic accident.'

0:45:400:45:46

The way Mitchell dealt with my dad's death was to just shut out the world,

0:45:460:45:51

perhaps for a few weeks pretend it didn't happen, and just live in his own bubble.

0:45:510:45:55

'But Mitchell wasn't just shutting himself away,

0:45:550:45:58

'he was dealing with his grief by turning it into something positive.

0:45:580:46:02

'And up in his room, he was learning to dance. Mitchell's big dream was to meet dance group Diversity.'

0:46:020:46:08

I've always followed Diversity. I think they're out of this world. They're class.

0:46:080:46:12

'After his sister Jamie-Lee got in touch, I took my team to his school and fed Mitchell a big fat lie.'

0:46:120:46:18

On the day of the surprise, I got told that Wolverhampton University

0:46:180:46:22

was doing a video shoot for one of their courses.

0:46:220:46:24

But it wasn't really, it was the BBC and I didn't have a clue.

0:46:240:46:29

This kid is awesome!

0:46:320:46:34

Is that it? Ready? Stand by, here we go.

0:46:380:46:40

-APPLAUSE

-Give it up for Mitchell, everybody!

0:46:400:46:44

John Barrowman came on the stage and I couldn't believe it. It was amazing.

0:46:440:46:48

-Hey, Mitchell, how are you?

-I'm fine, thank you.

0:46:480:46:52

I'm John Barrowman from BBC One's Tonight's The Night,

0:46:520:46:55

and I'm going to make one of your dreams come true

0:46:550:46:57

and get you trained by... Ashley Banjo from Diversity!

0:46:570:47:03

SCREAMING

0:47:030:47:05

'Cut to a week later, and when Mitchell met his hero, he couldn't quite believe it.'

0:47:070:47:12

-Nice to meet you.

-Good to meet you, man.

0:47:130:47:15

Ashley Banjo was standing right there and I was... It was unbelievable.

0:47:150:47:19

You see it on telly and you think, "Imagine if that happened to me." It actually is.

0:47:190:47:23

Sideways, yeah, good, good, good!

0:47:240:47:27

I've got a bit of a surprise for you. We're not just here to practice.

0:47:270:47:31

We're actually here to rehearse. We're rehearsing for Tonight's The Night.

0:47:310:47:34

-You'll be performing on Tonight's The Night.

-Really?

-But we've got one more surprise,

0:47:340:47:39

-you'll be performing with a few friends of mine called Diversity.

-Oh, my...

0:47:390:47:43

-Oh, my gosh! Oh!

-Here's the guys, Mitch!

-Oh, my gosh!

-It's for you, mate.

0:47:450:47:52

Diversity come out and he told me I was going to be dancing with them on the show. I couldn't believe it.

0:47:520:47:58

Picture yourself mentally here. Ready?

0:47:580:48:00

AUDIENCE GASP Yeah?

0:48:030:48:06

Mate, I'm only joking. LAUGHTER

0:48:080:48:10

'But there was no joking around when Mitchell hit my stage and blew everyone away.'

0:48:100:48:15

CHEERING

0:48:220:48:24

When I walked onto the stage I was going to be performing on, when I saw the lights and the music,

0:48:240:48:31

it's like a dream come true. Just amazing.

0:48:310:48:33

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:48:360:48:39

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:48:450:48:48

After being on Tonight's The Night I got recognised in services,

0:49:040:49:08

and on holiday and... Amazing, just like being a star.

0:49:080:49:11

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:49:260:49:29

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:49:370:49:41

'Totally amazing. Two more dance-crazy boys I surprised are deserving twins Sunny and Shyam.

0:49:420:49:48

'The twins dedicated their time to running workshops for teenagers,

0:49:480:49:52

'believing that dance can help build self-esteem and confidence.

0:49:520:49:56

'On top of their dedication to their community, the boys also help care for their disabled dad, Ash.

0:49:560:50:01

'He would like to thank his sons by making their dream of performing a Bollywood dance number come true.'

0:50:010:50:08

I think they will love every second.

0:50:080:50:12

And treasure every moment on this show.

0:50:120:50:16

'The boys think they're here to audition for a Bollywood fitness video.'

0:50:160:50:19

We've hired this dance studio in West London to put Sunny and Shyam through their paces.

0:50:190:50:24

They're going to meet with Bollywood choreographer extraordinaire Yinka Williams.

0:50:240:50:29

But this audition will be far from routine.

0:50:290:50:33

'Time for a quick change as I am transformed into Jorge, the choreographer's Spanish assistant.

0:50:330:50:39

-'Ready for action, boys?'

-LAUGHTER

0:50:390:50:41

Cos Jorge is about to teach you how to do

0:50:410:50:44

-the moves of the future.

-LAUGHTER

0:50:440:50:47

'Choreographer Yinka is in on the act and she gets the dancers started on their routine.

0:50:470:50:53

'Dad Ash and brother Jeet are watching all the action from the room next door.'

0:50:530:50:58

Good. I'm going to leave you in the capable hands of Jorge.

0:50:580:51:01

'Yinka is off to check on another group leaving, me in charge.

0:51:010:51:05

'Really bad idea. Will the boys realise Jorge is several strings short of a sitar?'

0:51:050:51:10

So we are going to do something stylistically a little different from the original.

0:51:100:51:15

I'm sure she will be fine with it when she come back, OK? Espanol!

0:51:150:51:18

OK? I know it's Bollywood but let's think a little Spanish.

0:51:180:51:21

Because you're going to do this. Pick-a-the-grape, pick-a-the-grape, bring in the laundry now.

0:51:210:51:26

Pick-a-the-grape, pick-a-the-grape, bring in the laundry now.

0:51:260:51:31

Climb the ladder to the top of the building... 'Laundry and ladders? How far can I push this?'

0:51:310:51:36

Sumo wrestler, and then we're going to go um-pah, um-pah, ah-ah-ah-ah!

0:51:360:51:42

-And walk away like this.

-LAUGHTER

0:51:420:51:46
