Good morning. Only six more advent calendar doors to open before

:00:10.:00:13.

Christmas Day so, to celebrate,we have the British/Irish all boy pop

:00:13.:00:16.

group who have performed alongside Justin Bieber and Britney Spears.

:00:16.:00:20.

They are The Wanted. And completing a musical line up for us today is

:00:20.:00:24.

the 20 year-old who Turned It Up and is now Young, Foolish and Happy

:00:24.:00:26.

:00:26.:00:33.

cocktails, chat and to take a look at the best of the festive telly.

:00:33.:00:43.
:00:43.:00:56.

We did where Christmas jumpers. Welcome to Smash hits! Welcome to

:00:56.:01:02.

Something For The Weekend. Smash hits, can you remember that? It was

:01:02.:01:08.

great. Of course I can, I am that told. Simon came up with a good

:01:08.:01:13.

idea to wear our Christmas jumpers. He knew in his locker he had a nice

:01:13.:01:19.

fashionable stylish design. Louise also has a stylish fashionable

:01:19.:01:26.

Christmas jumper. I think mine is quite Christmassy. I had to go and

:01:26.:01:31.

buy one, and this is horrible. Yours just looks like you are going

:01:31.:01:37.

skiing. It has Christmas trees, snow, and skiing people. It is

:01:37.:01:46.

Scandinavian. You should have really gone for report, with ties,

:01:46.:01:55.

and Rudolf. This is traditional Christmas Chelsea blue. You have

:01:55.:02:01.

rarely entered into the spirit of it, well done. It is a bit rubbish,

:02:01.:02:05.

isn't it? Am are going to carry on wearing it through the show? Yes,

:02:05.:02:13.

you are. It was Strictly Come Dancing last night's. Is it called

:02:13.:02:17.

Strictly Come Dancing, have I made that up? People just call it

:02:18.:02:25.

Strictly. It was the final with Harry, Jason Donovan and Chelsee

:02:25.:02:31.

Healey. That law is sprung loaded. You us, it is called a sprung floor,

:02:31.:02:38.

which is great as a dancer to dance on. Is that the Tower Ballroom at

:02:38.:02:44.

Blackpool? I have seen gigs there. There was a lot of glitter and fun

:02:45.:02:54.
:02:55.:03:01.

and festivity. Here is the result. Oh. Here is the result for you!

:03:01.:03:11.
:03:11.:03:14.

Harry Judd! A clean sweep this year. Have you seen on the tour they have

:03:14.:03:18.

to do it behind closed doors now because of the pitch invasion for

:03:19.:03:28.

the band. Next year, we are going for a clean sweep for Something For

:03:28.:03:33.

The Weekend. We are going to win X- factor next year with owl erasure

:03:33.:03:43.
:03:43.:03:50.

Act. -- our Erasure act. What am I doing? You are doing the jungle.

:03:50.:03:58.

worries. It will be a clean sweep. We are going to do all of them.

:03:58.:04:04.

Since 2009, Pixie Lott has sold a million albums. She has had three

:04:04.:04:09.

number-one singles, been nominated for three BRIT Awards, plus had a

:04:09.:04:16.

sell-out UK tour. She will be telling us about her plans to crack

:04:16.:04:21.

America. On her new album, did you know she has Stevie wonder

:04:21.:04:27.

performing on it? And John legend. I am a big fan of both. The Wanted

:04:27.:04:31.

will be telling stories about touring with Britney Spears and

:04:31.:04:36.

Justin Bieber, also talking about their album and single, also about

:04:37.:04:42.

having an army of screaming fans. If you have a question for either

:04:42.:04:50.

of our guests, or who you think won the Christmas jumpers. I think I

:04:50.:04:58.

won, but mine is too small for me. I wanted it to look like my little

:04:58.:05:05.

brother's jumper. They didn't make a lot of these, bizarrely! This is

:05:05.:05:12.

a one-off. Discomfort is the best part of it. You look absolutely

:05:12.:05:19.

roasting. I am going to get a sweaty top lip by the end of the

:05:19.:05:26.

show, always attractive on a woman. It is our last show before

:05:26.:05:31.

Christmas, what will you be cooking? We will be starting with

:05:31.:05:37.

tequila cured salmon. We all like a bit of cured meat at Christmas, so

:05:37.:05:43.

curing it in tequila and sugar is delicious. It is nice.

:05:43.:05:49.

intrigued by that. It has a nice flavour, nice texture. Texture is a

:05:49.:05:54.

big thing when you are during things. It doesn't sound nice.

:05:54.:06:02.

it not? I think anything with tequila sounds nice. It is lovely,

:06:02.:06:09.

you will like it. You will be the main course, venison loin

:06:09.:06:16.

Wellington. Look at that beast. Venice and, pate, mushrooms, gravy,

:06:16.:06:22.

vegetables, what is not to like? For dessert, a traditional Danish

:06:22.:06:28.

rice pudding. The story behind it, I will tell you when we do it with

:06:28.:06:37.

The Wanted boys. Finally, leftovers today - sprouts are always left

:06:37.:06:44.

over in my house. I love them. you not like them? We were saying

:06:44.:06:49.

how much we like to brussel sprout. How and they are not just for

:06:49.:06:55.

Christmas. Does anybody still do bubble and squeak? I like bubble

:06:55.:07:01.

and squeak. I like it, but I don't think people do it. They eat their

:07:01.:07:09.

food, don't they? They buy to eat. You can go to the website to follow

:07:09.:07:18.

the recipes. Here is what Som the rest of the show today. -- what is

:07:18.:07:25.

on the rest of the show. Who are you calling a little? You are quite

:07:25.:07:32.

small. At the universe is explained in Brian Cox's Night With The Stars.

:07:32.:07:38.

They behave more like waves and water. Gillian Anderson stars in

:07:38.:07:48.
:07:48.:07:53.

Great expectations. All of me is cold. Will your cocktails be making

:07:53.:08:03.
:08:03.:08:06.

us slightly more Christmassy today? I haven't got a Christmas jumper. I

:08:06.:08:12.

have got this. That doesn't help you. You do look good today. I have

:08:12.:08:17.

nice celebratory drinks for Christmas and New Year, bottled

:08:17.:08:26.

they can't which has been much during in the fridge. -- bottled

:08:26.:08:36.
:08:36.:08:41.

eggnog. Did you see on X-factor last week, one of the contestants

:08:41.:08:47.

had a shirt with no tie. Gary Barlow was really excited, wasn't

:08:47.:08:55.

he? Worse than me! Let's Cook. Morning, Gary. We know that he

:08:55.:09:03.

watches the show. He doesn't need to get up early in the morning!

:09:03.:09:13.
:09:13.:09:21.

Smash hits today! Come on, Gary. then we have tequila, soft brown

:09:21.:09:30.

sugar and salt, chilly, mustard seeds, cumin seeds. Whatever

:09:30.:09:39.

tequila you have got in the cupboard. Go on, in one! Come on,

:09:39.:09:45.

it's Christmas. It is been drinking time. By the way, it is putting

:09:45.:09:51.

stress and strain on our services, don't do it. Do your homework, tidy

:09:51.:09:57.

your bedrooms. First things first, I am going to toast the cumin seeds,

:09:57.:10:07.

the mustard seeds. Ideally, into a cold pan, let it warm gently. Tim,

:10:07.:10:16.

the first job for you, we will have some lime zest and some chopping.

:10:16.:10:21.

Louise, in the meantime, if you would like to combine the tequila,

:10:22.:10:28.

sugar and salt, and makes that together. We are trying to impart

:10:28.:10:35.

flavour. Literally just put it in like that? That is a lot of sugar.

:10:35.:10:41.

Yes, you want to cover the salmon with all these flavours. The longer

:10:41.:10:47.

you leave this, the better. Ideally, you would want to leave it for

:10:47.:10:52.

about 48 hours. If you can do it even longer, that is nicer. This is

:10:53.:11:02.

really potent. How much would you like? The zest

:11:02.:11:12.
:11:12.:11:21.

of all three, ideally. Thanks very much! That was a real reaction.

:11:21.:11:31.
:11:31.:11:33.

the girls are like that. I feel really told off. I forgot I was on

:11:33.:11:41.

television then! What?! As my fashion correspondent, I have a

:11:41.:11:48.

question to ask. I am shopping, am I? We don't need the juices. I went

:11:48.:11:53.

shopping for my daughter's the other day, I won't mention a brand,

:11:53.:12:00.

but everything is pink in the shops. My kids hate pink. Was it a real

:12:00.:12:09.

bright pink? No, for orchids, little girls. They assume my

:12:09.:12:12.

children are Katie Price. They are not! And they don't want to wear

:12:12.:12:21.

pink. With boys, it is so different. Football shirt. Yes, literally. I

:12:21.:12:25.

know it is hard if you have little girls who don't like pink because

:12:25.:12:31.

everything comes in pink under a certain age. Did you buy things?

:12:31.:12:39.

because they won't wear it. I buy my boys' school clothes and all

:12:39.:12:49.
:12:49.:12:54.

they want is football kits. -- cool clothes. Jot that, the line goes in

:12:54.:13:01.

there. All of that in here? Yes, pretty much, a fine job. That is

:13:01.:13:11.
:13:11.:13:12.

beautiful. We have lime zest, the toasted spices, so now you get the

:13:12.:13:19.

delicious flavour. It smells like a proper restaurant smell. That is

:13:19.:13:29.

praise indeed. Press that on to the surface of the delicious salmon.

:13:29.:13:36.

really should have done this a bit finer. Yes, but you get the idea.

:13:36.:13:42.

It is about flavour because this gets wiped off at the end of the

:13:42.:13:49.

day. That goes on, press that down, then we spooned all this lovely

:13:49.:13:56.

mixed on to there. If you don't like tequila, you could do this

:13:56.:14:02.

with vodka as well. It is the same principle. The alcohol starts to

:14:02.:14:08.

cook the salmon slightly. It is just going to cut in the alcohol?

:14:08.:14:15.

Yes, and all that happens now, the salt and sugar... I am so intrigued

:14:15.:14:22.

by this. It is very clever. The alcohol is cooking? Yes, the

:14:22.:14:28.

acidity is working here. Keep doing it, Little by Little. Obviously it

:14:28.:14:38.
:14:38.:14:41.

will still be wet. You then wrap it up really tightly. The tin foil

:14:41.:14:47.

round, then we put another tray on top, and weigh it down. Why do you

:14:47.:14:53.

have to do that? We want to press it down so we are squeezing moister

:14:53.:15:03.
:15:03.:15:07.

talking nonsense. I'm not sure you can put flavour in whilst getting

:15:07.:15:14.

moisture out. I'm not sure of the science. If we compact it we are

:15:14.:15:17.

changing the structure. I think it makes sense. The more it is pressed

:15:17.:15:22.

down, the more the alcohol is seeping into it and it is curing.

:15:22.:15:28.

But as he is saying that, the moisture is coming out at the same

:15:28.:15:37.

time. I'm not having it, I'm sorry. Now combine the yoghurt and the

:15:37.:15:42.

goat's cheese... Tim, get Professor Brian Cox on the phone right now.

:15:42.:15:49.

That can't work. Now, chop some mint. Stop questioning everything,

:15:49.:15:54.

Lovejoy. I'm not questioning everything, I just don't believe

:15:54.:15:59.

the logic. Chop that and put into it the goat's cheese and yoghurt

:16:00.:16:06.

mix. Here is our 12.5 kilo weight on top. I wondered what those

:16:06.:16:12.

weights were this morning. I thought they were door thingies.

:16:12.:16:20.

What else could you use to do that? Two house bricks. Get Jamie to

:16:20.:16:30.

stand on it. Look what happens. the flavour's gone in and all the

:16:30.:16:34.

moisture has gone out. That's exactly what's happened Tim.

:16:34.:16:40.

believe you, Simon. Add the lime juice. How many? Just the one will

:16:40.:16:48.

do. Here is this beautiful piece of salmon. What we do, we take it out.

:16:48.:16:58.
:16:58.:17:00.

It's compacted. Oh look, all the moisture has come out! Feel this

:17:00.:17:05.

now. It's hard. And why is that? Because all the moisture has come

:17:05.:17:12.

out. Thank you! LAUGHTER But Simon, all the flavour's gone in. LAUGHTER

:17:12.:17:19.

Who needs to watch that Brian Cox show? We've got you doing it.

:17:19.:17:26.

love Brian Cox. So do I, but I don't understand a word he says.

:17:26.:17:36.
:17:36.:17:37.

you like me go ych, yep, no, no, and then white noise? I start

:17:37.:17:42.

thinking about his haircut and what a nice jacket he's wearing. That's

:17:42.:17:48.

so me, what you just said that. I thought it was only me who watched

:17:48.:17:52.

nice, intelligent programmes and after ten minutes think, what is

:17:52.:18:02.
:18:02.:18:04.

this actually about? See how lovely and dry this is. This is beautiful.

:18:04.:18:09.

That does look amazing. Look at that, that's glorious. Are we

:18:09.:18:17.

coming round here now? We are. Lovely slices of this. I do love it

:18:17.:18:22.

when it is so far over. It's brilliant. And then we have our

:18:22.:18:26.

lovely bits of salmon. And the goat's cheese, which works

:18:26.:18:34.

brilliantly with it. Did you taste that? I don't really like goat's

:18:34.:18:43.

cheese, so it's wasted on me. like goat's cheese. That's really

:18:43.:18:49.

good. I'm going to try a bit of goat's cheese. Actually, that's

:18:49.:18:56.

alright. It is a time commitment, you need look it -- leave it for a

:18:56.:19:02.

couple of days. But that's better than salmon from the supermarket.

:19:02.:19:08.

And the main course? The venison Wellington. That is really good.

:19:08.:19:13.

You can follow our recipes on our website -

:19:13.:19:15.

bbc.co.uk/somethingfortheweekend. It's time for a Christmas

:19:15.:19:19.

adaptation of a classic story, starring Stephen Fry and Victoria

:19:19.:19:24.

Wood, amongst others. This is one for the whole family. This is The

:19:24.:19:34.
:19:34.:19:35.

I can't believe she was right. My own little person. Who are you

:19:35.:19:39.

calling little? Well, you are quite small. No I'm not. It is you who

:19:39.:19:45.

are too big. You are a great big overgrown giant. We are just the

:19:45.:19:51.

right size. There's more of you? didn't say that. Get back! Ow! I

:19:51.:19:57.

was only going to help you out. aren't going to eat me? Eat you?

:19:57.:20:07.
:20:07.:20:14.

What would be the point? My name's James. Harietti.

:20:14.:20:24.

Do you want a hand? Yes, please. If that was supposed to be funny...

:20:24.:20:31.

Serves you right for stealing my gun. We don't staerblgs we borrow.

:20:31.:20:39.

So -- We don't steal, we borrow. there are more of you? What's that?

:20:39.:20:48.

How about I show you? What exactly does this thing do...

:20:48.:20:58.
:20:58.:21:03.

Are you alright? Look, I'm so sorry. You can enter the world of The

:21:03.:21:09.

Borrowers on Boxing Day at 7.30 on BBC One. Our first guest readily

:21:09.:21:13.

admit to being a manufactured boy band, but the auditions worked,

:21:13.:21:17.

because in two years they've built a huge fan base in the UK and

:21:17.:21:24.

abroad, plus turned out hit after hit, including these.

:21:24.:21:30.

# I'm in pieces # It seems like this is the only

:21:30.:21:36.

thing I've never known # How do you get it from an all-

:21:36.:21:45.

# The sun goes down # The stars come out

:21:45.:21:48.

# The universe will never be the same

:21:48.:21:54.

# I'm glad you came, I'm glad you came #

:21:54.:22:01.

. With we are glad you came. Welcome to The Wanted. You are

:22:01.:22:05.

cheating, where are your dance routines? Has no-one tried to get

:22:05.:22:10.

you to do dance routines? Back in the day we did try but we are so

:22:10.:22:16.

bad we thought it's better not to ruin the singing. It is hard when

:22:16.:22:21.

you are singing live and you've got loads of routine. You get out of

:22:21.:22:27.

breath and can't sing properly. Louise said earlier you are a

:22:27.:22:34.

manufactured band. Where are you all from? Bolton. Gloucester.

:22:34.:22:41.

Nottingham. Dublin. Where were the auditions advertised? I Googled for

:22:41.:22:51.
:22:51.:22:52.

auditions. Doingle the answer. that a joke? I Googled auditions.

:22:52.:23:02.
:23:02.:23:02.

And someone said to me that the thing they had on the website was

:23:02.:23:07.

Wanted, male singers" and then Nathan decided to call us The

:23:07.:23:16.

Wanted. Do you all write? Did you all write beforehand? Yes. I saw

:23:16.:23:26.
:23:26.:23:27.

you at the Jingle Bell Ball. I did see instruments going on there.

:23:27.:23:32.

it true, Max, that you had a chance to sign for Preston North End?

:23:32.:23:37.

used to play football a lot when I was younger. I played a couple of

:23:37.:23:42.

Games for England schoolboys. I love football. What position but

:23:42.:23:48.

play? I was the smaller of the two forwards. But it didn't work out.

:23:48.:23:54.

read that you had to make the decision. It was either the

:23:54.:24:00.

drinking or football. Is it a good life? Are you enjoying it, the last

:24:00.:24:04.

two years? It is amazing. You see things you never thought you would

:24:04.:24:11.

see and go places you never thought you would go. It's quite busy.

:24:11.:24:16.

never get to be home very much, which is the downside. But we've

:24:16.:24:22.

been to Brazil, America, Australia, Asia. It's been a mad year. And the

:24:22.:24:25.

second album you guys were much more involved in the writing. You

:24:25.:24:29.

played a big part, which people don't realise takes up a huge

:24:29.:24:34.

amount of time. What was the album structure? Did you all write on the

:24:34.:24:40.

album? On the first album we contributed. But the record company

:24:40.:24:44.

had an idea and helped us make that. But the second time it was

:24:44.:24:50.

controlling. We don't like this track. Did you set out with a set

:24:50.:24:56.

idea of what you wanted to do Manchester Unitedically? All the,

:24:56.:25:03.

it was different to the stuff we did on the first album. When we

:25:03.:25:09.

first heard it... We were used to catering for the younger market.

:25:09.:25:15.

Boy bands are everywhere now. We'll probably maybe have more longevity

:25:15.:25:19.

if we try to write stuff that everyone would like. It is hard,

:25:19.:25:23.

because you have to always think of doing something different. There've

:25:23.:25:26.

been so many bands before you and will come after, so it is

:25:26.:25:29.

identifying your sound and your look and getting your own fan base.

:25:29.:25:36.

Is that something you think about? These boys, the new single... I

:25:36.:25:42.

mean, they incorporated a bit of dubstep. I'm a massive fan of

:25:42.:25:48.

dubstep. It's become really big in the last year or so. To incorporate

:25:48.:25:53.

dubstep in a boy band in general is a risk. A piano ballad! I think

:25:54.:26:03.
:26:04.:26:06.

we've got a clip of that single. # I know, I just gotta let it go

:26:06.:26:15.

# I, I, I should have known # I gotta let you say goodbye now

:26:15.:26:21.

# I through my armour down # I'm leaving the battleground for

:26:21.:26:27.

the final time now # I, I, I know I'm running from a

:26:27.:26:31.

war zone # So you are releasing that on Boxing

:26:31.:26:37.

Day? Yes. You are not going for the Christmas Day number one? No, the

:26:37.:26:42.

Boxing Day sales. Is the Christmas Day number one a write-off because

:26:42.:26:46.

of X Factor? I think so. Because X Factor sets the standard, only

:26:46.:26:52.

crazy songs with a story normally make it. Army Wifes are doing it

:26:52.:26:58.

this year... Military Wives. They are saying that is going to win.

:26:58.:27:03.

And nirvana have reached the anti-X Factor song as well. There is

:27:03.:27:12.

always going to be a certain spin with that to go with that. You've

:27:12.:27:17.

got a bit of time off over Christmas. It is eur last day today

:27:17.:27:21.

and we are off for Christmas. We go away from a bit of a holiday over

:27:21.:27:27.

new year. And then you are off to the States. How is it going there?

:27:27.:27:32.

We are doing it anonymously I think. We went over, released the song...

:27:32.:27:38.

That's not the way to celebrate! we go out there and say, we were a

:27:38.:27:44.

boy band, a lot of people say no. Kiss FM in New York took it

:27:44.:27:48.

straight away. We are so grateful for that. It's had really good

:27:48.:27:53.

feed-back. You have to literally go everywhere to be successful

:27:53.:27:57.

everywhere. It is quite nice, because we are going back to the

:27:57.:28:01.

start again. We traipsed around schools and clubs and pubs for

:28:01.:28:09.

three or four months. When we go to America we are doing the Rock and

:28:09.:28:14.

Roll Hotel in Denver. It's going be a trek. It is maidsing that you see

:28:14.:28:22.

parts of the world you will sever see... Like Denver! Make sure you

:28:22.:28:26.

get your questions in for them. Tweet us at @SFTW or e-mail via the

:28:29.:28:33.

We've got some pretty un- Christmassy headlines but a really

:28:33.:28:39.

Christmassy song and film to help you guess the year in today's Deja

:28:39.:28:45.

View. # Baby, all I want for Christmas is

:28:45.:28:55.

Matt Busby was and remains an unsullied public figure, which

:28:55.:29:00.

explains the loss of his death which goes far beyond the world of

:29:00.:29:05.

football. Television screens are dominated by the court case with

:29:05.:29:12.

the American footballer OJ Simpson. The President of the European

:29:12.:29:16.

Commission Jack delor is disappointed that Norway voted

:29:16.:29:21.

against joining the European Union. He said the door is open if it

:29:21.:29:24.

changed its mind later in the decade.

:29:24.:29:32.

# Make my wish come true # All I want for Christmas is you #

:29:32.:29:38.

You are a very good Santa Claus. Your beard's stuck on real tight.

:29:38.:29:45.

Usually the store's Santa Claus whiskers are a bit loose. Your as

:29:45.:29:50.

realistic. That's because they are real. You give them a tug. I've

:29:50.:30:00.
:30:00.:30:12.

never seen that film. You? East 17 is the best one. The po Box

:30:12.:30:18.

always win, that one is probably the best. What came next? It was

:30:18.:30:28.

good, bizarrely. Who came third? East 17? Am I losing my credibility

:30:28.:30:38.
:30:38.:30:40.

for sticking up for East 17? Tim. 1993? 1994? I haven't got a

:30:40.:30:49.

clue. Christmas songs all fade into one. What did you go for? Now 1994.

:30:49.:30:56.

I will go with 1992. Cocking, what have we done this week? Christmas

:30:56.:31:04.

jumper time. This is not as good as yours. He made the roulade, the

:31:04.:31:11.

second attempt they have to walk all the way to his house. It is a

:31:11.:31:19.

nice time, romance at Christmas. bended knee. Let us know. De do get

:31:19.:31:28.

on bended knee when you propose? not with my knees. My knees, my

:31:28.:31:36.

Achilles. I drew a picture of myself on my knees! You have got to

:31:36.:31:42.

go on one knee, or otherwise for the rest of your life you're wife

:31:42.:31:47.

will say you didn't go down on one knee. A couple engaged in my

:31:47.:31:52.

restaurant this week. He did go down on one knee and it was very

:31:52.:31:58.

romantic. This is probably one of the best pictures we have ever had.

:31:58.:32:02.

This couple are from Liverpool originally, they are currently in

:32:02.:32:10.

Uganda, and still found time to make the chocolate roulade. Finally,

:32:10.:32:19.

Lucy and Victoria from Skipton, again they have made the roulade.

:32:19.:32:26.

They are going to see The Wanted in Sheffield. They are not playing in

:32:26.:32:32.

Sheffield in February? Must be wrong. Whatever you cook over

:32:32.:32:42.
:32:42.:32:46.

Christmas, do send in your pictures. This, Tim... This is exciting.

:32:46.:32:49.

you want to do something exciting over the Christmas period, we are

:32:49.:32:56.

going to do a venison Wellington. We have venison, field mushrooms.

:32:56.:33:06.
:33:06.:33:10.

So you sealed it first? The problem with venison is it is very easy to

:33:10.:33:18.

overcook it. Season it in the pan until you get some colour, take it

:33:18.:33:23.

out and then let it go cold. When you put it in the pastry and in the

:33:23.:33:32.

oven. That's fine, we have protection now. As long as you only

:33:32.:33:42.
:33:42.:33:46.

like, but we have pate and pastry in the fridge. The first job for

:33:46.:33:56.
:33:56.:33:57.

you, Tim, is too finely chop some mushrooms. This is a duxelles of

:33:57.:34:04.

mushrooms, which means finely chopped. Put them into the food

:34:04.:34:12.

processor, pulsing them until they get to be fine. The other thing

:34:12.:34:20.

about venison, it is quite rich meat. You need a good gravy or

:34:20.:34:26.

something, don't you? A good reduction or something. We have a

:34:26.:34:33.

rich stock gravy, we have port. In the gravy, a bit of Madeira is nice

:34:34.:34:43.
:34:44.:34:44.

for something like venison. In here, we have cooked some shallots, some

:34:44.:34:50.

butter goes into there, then the finely chopped mushrooms go into

:34:50.:34:59.

their as well. Let them start cookout a little bit. I went for a

:34:59.:35:04.

fitness test this week because I am going to do the bike ride. This is

:35:05.:35:10.

with Mark Cavendish, isn't it? but he's not cycling, he is the

:35:10.:35:16.

ambassador for it. I have to cycle for three days, 100 miles a day.

:35:16.:35:20.

That doesn't sound like a lot but I am assuming it is a lot, I don't

:35:20.:35:25.

know. I went to do this fitness thing and this man said a brilliant

:35:25.:35:35.
:35:35.:35:47.

word - he said abs are created in the kitchen. So do have a dietary

:35:47.:35:55.

plan? No, I haven't. Have you started cycling? No, I haven't.

:35:55.:36:03.

good start! I was cheating because we have got to finish it. We have

:36:03.:36:13.
:36:13.:36:13.

got to sit them, until they squeak. Lots of water in there, then put

:36:13.:36:23.
:36:23.:36:24.

the port into there. Port really goes with venison, doesn't it? Or a

:36:24.:36:30.

rich red wine. Anything that fortified. Even Cherie is good

:36:30.:36:35.

because you want the rich flavour. Let this bubble down to pretty much

:36:35.:36:45.
:36:45.:36:45.

nothing, and you end up with this. Venison is very lean, isn't it?

:36:46.:36:55.
:36:56.:36:59.

There are your abdominal muscles in that. Now, with Wellington so

:36:59.:37:05.

victor often we wrap them in pancakes. I am wrapping them in

:37:05.:37:13.

streaky bacon, you could use Parma ham. We spread this duxelles a

:37:13.:37:23.
:37:23.:37:24.

cross here. Is that what this is for? I got one of these were the

:37:24.:37:34.
:37:34.:37:37.

set of knives once. For this one is blunt! We're really looking for a

:37:37.:37:42.

platform to sit the venison on. That is beautiful. There is a lot

:37:42.:37:48.

of flavour in that. Then we have the field mushrooms, the shallots,

:37:48.:37:53.

so that is a delicious flavour in its own right. The venison we have

:37:53.:38:03.
:38:03.:38:08.

sealed, now we are going to sneer pate all over it. -- smear. We have

:38:08.:38:15.

folded the venison in half so we have a fat joint. If you work your

:38:15.:38:21.

hands, it might be easier to do but we are pressing it round. Do you

:38:21.:38:25.

want a thick layer? It depends how much you like it. If you don't like

:38:25.:38:31.

pate, you could leave it off. This is chicken liver pate, but it could

:38:31.:38:37.

be anything you fancy. Stick that in the middle. Wild you wash your

:38:37.:38:44.

hands, I will wrap this. We rolled it around on this side. It is a bit

:38:44.:38:53.

of a faff, but the end result is worth it. I did one of these once,

:38:53.:39:03.
:39:03.:39:03.

didn't I? I did the Beef Wellington. Wrap it up, put it in the fridge,

:39:03.:39:13.
:39:13.:39:14.

and chill it. Then we end up with this here. That has been in the

:39:14.:39:19.

fridge for about 20 minutes, an hour, two hours. It is nice and

:39:19.:39:25.

solid now so we have a beautiful flavour. Next we stick the venison

:39:25.:39:32.

on there, then we roll it around until it just over laps. It is

:39:32.:39:37.

important you get a good contact with it. You wanted to be really

:39:37.:39:43.

tight around it. This is one of those things that you know will be

:39:44.:39:50.

beautiful. You don't want to have loads of pastry around here because

:39:50.:40:00.
:40:00.:40:02.

you don't want it to be soggy. tight. That's what we want, to him.

:40:02.:40:08.

Then we want a nice neat end so we can be pretty as it can be. Like a

:40:08.:40:14.

parcel? Yes, imagine it is a present, like all those presents

:40:14.:40:17.

you bought yesterday. I have been struggling with my Christmas

:40:17.:40:24.

shopping. All I have got to do is buy a present for my wife, then I

:40:24.:40:29.

have a few bits and pieces for my kids. Most things I have fought

:40:29.:40:36.

online, I will be honest. Use it this on to the board, then let this

:40:36.:40:42.

chilled after you have a washed it. Let it Cheal, then a wash it again

:40:42.:40:52.
:40:52.:41:24.

so that is really glossy. -- chill, then eggwash it. A big fat piece of

:41:24.:41:34.
:41:34.:41:35.

that. We have our roast potatoes. This, on Christmas Day. Then a

:41:35.:41:44.

little bit of rich gravy goes on there. Go for it. We will stand at

:41:44.:41:52.

the back and watch. We are all right. The pastry is crispy. That

:41:52.:42:02.
:42:02.:42:08.

is absolutely awesome. What is for dessert? Danish rice pudding!

:42:08.:42:18.
:42:18.:42:25.

is still stirring. You can find Brian Cox is trying to make sure

:42:25.:42:29.

our brains don't turn to mush over the festive period so he has filled

:42:29.:42:35.

a lecture theatre with celebrities. Here, he is trying to explain

:42:35.:42:44.

electrons to Sarah Millican in his Night With The Stars. A place where

:42:44.:42:54.
:42:54.:42:54.

there is no waves, then some waves, then no waves. You see that pattern.

:42:54.:42:58.

If you were to draw a detector along there, you would see that.

:42:58.:43:07.

Here you would see nothing, no waves, no electrons, here we have

:43:07.:43:12.

waves and electrons. So what can week in For? Have you not done your

:43:12.:43:19.

homework today? This is just the experimental data. This was done in

:43:19.:43:29.
:43:29.:43:30.

the 1920s and it was a shock, but the inference is...? That looks

:43:30.:43:40.
:43:40.:43:43.

like... This could be a long game! GCSE grade C remember. This pattern

:43:43.:43:51.

here. What do you think? Just tell us. The electrons are behaving more

:43:51.:43:58.

like the waves in the tank, water waves. That is a classic pattern

:43:58.:44:08.
:44:08.:44:08.

you see when you get waves passing through. This is what you might

:44:09.:44:14.

have expected electrons to do, but they don't behave like sound. They

:44:14.:44:24.
:44:24.:44:29.

behave more like waves and water. Oh, that's me! Merry Christmas.

:44:29.:44:36.

What were you thinking? I was thinking I am really hot. Yes, you

:44:36.:44:46.
:44:46.:44:50.

are. Ouch! You can learn from Brian Cox with Night With The Stars on

:44:50.:44:55.

Weekend Lott lot. Will you be singing a song for us in a minute.

:45:57.:46:01.

Ben will be standing by there, who you take everywhere, Christmas

:46:01.:46:05.

shopping, the lot. Before that we'll talk to you about other stuff.

:46:05.:46:11.

Let's go back to the beginning, you went to the same school as Louise?

:46:11.:46:21.
:46:21.:46:30.

I did, yes. Italia Conti. Did we have some of the same teachers?

:46:30.:46:40.

D, ne? Rest in peace. Quick! Go to an ad break! LAUGHTER I went to a

:46:40.:46:44.

Saturday school? Chislehurst, so I saw him not too long ago. He was

:46:44.:46:50.

still exactly the same. It feels funny to go back. A great school

:46:50.:46:56.

though. A great place. You can always tell a Conti girl. When you

:46:56.:47:02.

go to a school like that you obviously do acting and singing.

:47:02.:47:07.

Louise said she always wanted a pop career. Was that the same with you?

:47:07.:47:11.

I went there because he heard of Italia Conti as being a school

:47:12.:47:16.

where you could do dance, singing and acting as well as your school

:47:16.:47:22.

work. Soy wanted to go there. We trained in musical theatre. I

:47:22.:47:27.

always knew I wanted to be a recording artist. I did this

:47:27.:47:32.

separate to school. Do you think it gives awe good grounding, when you

:47:32.:47:38.

do musical theatre. I think it helps when you become an artist

:47:38.:47:43.

100% it helps. I do shows but I don't feel too nervous, because

:47:43.:47:47.

it's second nature. Just growing up in an environment where everyone is

:47:47.:47:52.

into the same thing. It gives you confidence and gets you used to it

:47:52.:47:58.

a bit. You have a very successful album. Your new album features some

:47:58.:48:04.

legends, as in John Legend and Stevie Wonder. That's amazing. How

:48:04.:48:11.

did it come? It happened naturally. I was in the right place at the

:48:11.:48:15.

right time. I was just very lucky. With the Stevie Wonder thing it

:48:15.:48:19.

happened because I was in a restaurants in LA. Just before I

:48:19.:48:25.

left I bumped into an old friend. I didn't realise he knew Stevie and

:48:25.:48:30.

was meeting him for dinner. Before we left he said, "Don't leave yet,

:48:30.:48:36.

I've got a friend I want you to meet." I thought it was a random

:48:36.:48:44.

guy. An old guy. Stevie walked in and it was such a moment for me. Oh,

:48:44.:48:52.

my gosh. I was caught off guard. And the John Legend thing, we have

:48:52.:48:58.

a mutual friend. Was you in the studio together or did you do it

:48:58.:49:02.

separately? We met first of alls and looked at our schedules. We

:49:02.:49:07.

were in New York for two hours on a Sunday, so we got into the studio.

:49:07.:49:12.

He was on the piano and we came out with it really quick and recorded

:49:12.:49:22.
:49:22.:49:22.

the vocal. So John Legend plays the piano on the track? And sings.

:49:22.:49:29.

Stevie Wonder plays the harmonica? Yes. But spend much time in the

:49:29.:49:34.

States? Yes, I spent two months there with writers and producers.

:49:34.:49:38.

But in London there is great people I work with here, so it is a

:49:38.:49:42.

mixture between the two. We are going to get tow sing for us now.

:49:42.:49:47.

Ben, would you like to come in? The Wanted are here as well to listen

:49:47.:49:55.

to you. Hi, Ben. Have you got a mic? I have, yes. How are you?

:49:55.:49:59.

pretty good. What song are you going to do? I'm going to do the

:49:59.:50:05.

one that I wrote with John Legend. World Trade Center piano on the

:50:05.:50:09.

recording, but Ben's playing the guitar. No pressure for you then,

:50:09.:50:19.
:50:19.:50:19.

Ben! # I don't get caught up

:50:19.:50:24.

# Always have the upper hand # I'm the one who knows

:50:24.:50:30.

# Even when I'm in love # I never give it all to one man

:50:30.:50:40.

# But you came into this # I'm facing my first defeat

:50:40.:50:46.

# I said I would never be a silly fool

:50:46.:50:53.

# But look what you've done to me # Said I will never lose

:50:53.:50:58.

# But you came in and changed the rules

:50:58.:51:02.

# You win # I love you

:51:02.:51:09.

# I don't care any more # Because who's keeping score - you

:51:09.:51:15.

# I love it and my heart is surprised

:51:15.:51:25.
:51:25.:51:39.

# It's yours every time - you win # It's yours every time - you win #

:51:39.:51:49.
:51:49.:51:53.

APPLAUSE Lovely. Definitely a John Legend

:51:53.:51:59.

vibe there. Well done. Are you going on tour soon? Next year I

:51:59.:52:04.

think I will be touring. Probably next year. We haven't got any dates

:52:04.:52:10.

but I'm excited about it. Are you taking Ben with you on tour?

:52:10.:52:14.

Definitely. Ben Wes been with us from the beginning. Sam says what

:52:14.:52:19.

are your plans for the 21st next month? It is on 12th January and

:52:19.:52:25.

I'm having a massive party. I've looked at some venues but not

:52:25.:52:30.

picked anything yet. I've got to get organised for. This boys, feel

:52:30.:52:37.

free to come down. They'll be there like a shot. That's it from Pixie

:52:37.:52:42.

for now but she will be cooking with Simon later. If you still want

:52:42.:52:48.

to ask her anything, tweet us at @SFTW or go to our website -

:52:48.:52:54.

bbc.co.uk/somethingfortheweekend. This is still to come:

:52:54.:52:59.

If you like Dickens you can have Great Expectations. I am expected.

:52:59.:53:07.

He is. You're not. Simon's final Christmassy dish is

:53:07.:53:12.

sprout and potato quiche. And the girls are back looking Ab Fab.

:53:12.:53:22.
:53:22.:53:24.

whole house is alarmed now. Go! Go! It is our last show before

:53:24.:53:29.

Christmas, so our gadget expert Lucy has some crackers, including

:53:29.:53:34.

an iPhone dock that looks like a gramophone, a modern update on a

:53:34.:53:39.

retro camera, and a radio- controlled stunt Buggy. She will be

:53:39.:53:45.

here later to explain all. How does she change so quickly? Maybe I just

:53:45.:53:50.

said it really quick. We are joined in the kitchen by two guys from The

:53:50.:53:58.

Wanted. Tom and Max. How are you? Hello.

:53:58.:54:07.

Did you cook? I love it. That surprises me. I'm not quite to the

:54:07.:54:12.

venison standard yet. A bit of rice pudding. We should be able to nail

:54:12.:54:18.

that. This is Danish rice pudding that. This is Danish rice pudding

:54:18.:54:28.
:54:28.:54:30.

with almonds. Have you done Denmark yet? We have,

:54:30.:54:35.

yes. If you are there at Christmas. Instead of Christmas pudding they

:54:35.:54:40.

do rice pudding. In olden days when we put sixpences in our Christmas

:54:40.:54:44.

pud, finding the almonds in your rice pud is said to be good luck in

:54:44.:54:49.

Denmark. You have a massive Christmas dinner and then you have

:54:49.:54:56.

to neck this rice pudding to find the almond. I'm not sure how much

:54:56.:55:01.

fun that would be. Our milk is coming to the boil. So we add sugar

:55:02.:55:10.

and our pudding rice. What do you boys cook? I like chili con carne.

:55:10.:55:17.

Mexican. I like Mexican. That's quite impressive. Spanish as well

:55:17.:55:23.

bit of tapas. My mum taught me when I was younger. That's good when

:55:23.:55:27.

mums teach their kids. I would like my boys to be able to cook when

:55:27.:55:33.

they are older. Can you cook? this is the problem I'm facing at

:55:33.:55:37.

the moment. They must be fantastic already, Lou, because with you it

:55:37.:55:46.

is non- stop cooking in Redknapp Towers! They know what to order.

:55:46.:55:50.

cook this slowly. It is a bit of a pain in the backside that you have

:55:50.:55:55.

to stir it all the time. Rice pud. That on its own is lovely. Max,

:55:55.:56:00.

what we are going to do now is set it, so the gelatine, we've soaked

:56:00.:56:05.

it in water. Squeeze the moisture out of that and pop the gelatine

:56:05.:56:11.

into that and beat it. It is quite weird to handle, gelatine. Squeeze

:56:11.:56:20.

as much moisture out as you can. This isn't very vegetarian friendly

:56:20.:56:26.

then? Jay, you are out of luck, mate. You could use a agar and

:56:26.:56:36.

white still set. Beat that. It goes in when it is hot. That starts to

:56:36.:56:42.

break down. A quick question from Rachel. Who did you prefer touring

:56:42.:56:51.

with, Bieber or Britney Spears? think Britney Spears. That's a

:56:51.:56:56.

surprise. You grow up can people like that. And she is pretty

:56:56.:57:02.

amazing, what she's achieved. was new audience, an older audience.

:57:02.:57:11.

Was she lovely? A really nice girl. She's done this a long time. She

:57:12.:57:16.

was so nice. Cool. OK. We let that set. Tom, oh to you. This now

:57:16.:57:20.

becomes our set one. That's quite solid. What we are going to do is

:57:20.:57:27.

beat in this cream. So little by little, a spoonful of that goes in.

:57:27.:57:31.

Start beating that in. The first bit, you are almost breaking it

:57:31.:57:35.

down rather than trying to beat it in. Bizarrely we have set it and

:57:35.:57:40.

now you want to soften it. This means it is holding together really

:57:40.:57:45.

well. Now that you are engaged to Michelle Keegan, now you are going

:57:45.:57:50.

to be the next celebrity couple are you taking over from the next

:57:50.:57:58.

Redknapps? You think you are so funny, Simon! My girlfriend fancies

:57:58.:58:06.

Jamie. He likes hearing autumn that. Does he? Of course! Are you aware

:58:06.:58:11.

of the fact that as a couple it must put extra pressure on you? But

:58:11.:58:19.

find that when you first started going out together? You don't think

:58:19.:58:24.

like that. It is nice to just keep, sometimes you sound a bit hard work,

:58:24.:58:27.

but keep as much of it out of the limelight as you confirm no matter

:58:27.:58:32.

who you are, when you go home and shut the door, you are normal and

:58:32.:58:35.

there is no rock 'n' roll. Well, there isn't in my house. There

:58:35.:58:40.

might be in yours. But in our house there is no rock 'n' roll. We're

:58:40.:58:46.

norm. That's what important. Like you say, she just sees me as Max.

:58:46.:58:53.

She sometimes finds it weird watching me at gigs. And she does

:58:53.:58:58.

her own thing as well, which helps. I find it weird that she is on

:58:58.:59:03.

Corrie. I used to watch it as a kid. I go on the set quite a lot and I

:59:03.:59:10.

feel a bit funny. Do you guys live in London or up north? The boys

:59:10.:59:15.

live here but I still live many Manchester. So you get to see each

:59:15.:59:19.

other. You are not struggling. lot of the time we are away, so

:59:19.:59:25.

whenever I'm in England I'm in Manchester. If not I'm on Nathan's

:59:25.:59:32.

sofa. My daughter did an acting class with Michelle last week and

:59:32.:59:37.

said how brilliant she was, and normal. She went back to her old

:59:37.:59:43.

acting schooling to help out. She loved it. The kids were really nice.

:59:43.:59:49.

Yours included. There you go. that was fantastic. Beautiful. Now,

:59:49.:59:56.

here's where, what you need to do is half fill each of those.

:59:56.:00:00.

looks very creamy. It's a really creamy pud. Imagine you've had your

:00:00.:00:06.

big Christmas dinner. Half fill each one to start with, Tom.

:00:06.:00:16.
:00:16.:00:30.

that it? Did you think it would be thing. One almonds goes in the

:00:30.:00:38.

middle of these. You are all sitting round on Christmas Day,

:00:38.:00:44.

really fall. Whoever gets the almonds will be lucky for the rest

:00:44.:00:49.

of the year. This is where you can get creative. It is a bit messy,

:00:49.:00:55.

sorry about that. You have put your own touched on it, it is safe to

:00:55.:01:05.

say. Have I got time for one more e-mail? If you weren't sinners,

:01:05.:01:15.
:01:15.:01:17.

what would you be doing now? would be a chef. Probably not, from

:01:17.:01:23.

this effort! My dad will be gutted. When I said we were making rice

:01:23.:01:31.

pudding, he said remember to use nutmeg. We are using cinnamon. You

:01:31.:01:41.

could use nutmeg. Maybe we can spoon a few out, or do we not need

:01:41.:01:51.
:01:51.:01:56.

to? Of course, only one of them has almonds in it.

:01:56.:02:01.

Everyone grabbed the spoon, have a go. I missed the bit - why is it

:02:02.:02:11.
:02:12.:02:13.

Danish? It is traditional. Whoever gets the almonds gets good luck for

:02:13.:02:22.

the rest of the year. What are we making next? Sprout quiche.

:02:22.:02:32.
:02:32.:02:37.

favourite. Anyone found the almonds in it? I have found gelatin.

:02:37.:02:46.

Christmas cocktails next, but now your last chance to guess the year

:04:52.:05:02.
:05:02.:05:06.

going to make cocktails. I am going to do a really nice bottled egg nog.

:05:06.:05:15.

It goes back to medieval traditions, Anglo-Saxon. When it came over to

:05:25.:05:36.

:05:36.:05:45.

Cox the eggs. The might get ill but you will be drunk and you won't

:05:50.:06:00.
:06:00.:06:03.

realise. That is a question that people do think about. It is just

:06:03.:06:07.

not if you are pregnant, I would imagine. In which case you

:06:07.:06:14.

shouldn't be drinking anyway! We have fresh eggs with the lion mark,

:06:14.:06:24.
:06:24.:06:29.

it is very slim chance you will get is to serve six people by the way.

:06:30.:06:34.

want to serve its warm, you can put it in a pan and heat it up. This is

Tuesday 27th December at 9pm on BBC One. Our gadget expert is here,

:11:53.:11:59.

along with Siva and Jay from The Wanted. Have you done your

:11:59.:12:05.

Christmas shopping? The S, a little bit. I have got a lot of nieces and

:12:05.:12:15.
:12:15.:12:15.

nephews to buy presents for. Do you like a good trip? Siva is very into

:12:15.:12:25.
:12:25.:12:32.

gadgets. When you go on the road? Yes, we have I pads. We have our

:12:32.:12:37.

headphones on. The swan is not suitable for a tour bus because it

:12:37.:12:44.

is pretty heavy. No, this is a Trumstand, basically a glorified

:12:44.:12:51.

iPod. It is not exactly portable, you will not be carting it from

:12:51.:12:58.

room to room. This horn stand is crafted from brass, plated in

:12:58.:13:05.

nickel. I love about this, there are no electronics. It is natural

:13:05.:13:15.
:13:15.:13:17.

Acoustics, so play this. Old school. Very old school. I don't know if

:13:17.:13:23.

you can hear that at home but the sound is odd, isn't it? You us, it

:13:23.:13:33.

is designed to replicate the gramophone sound. It is a nice bit

:13:33.:13:37.

of art, the acoustics are not necessarily what you would expect

:13:37.:13:47.
:13:47.:13:48.

from something that costs �1,500. Oh! For once I can agree with you

:13:48.:13:54.

this gadget is expensive. It is more of an ornament, isn't it?

:13:54.:13:59.

is for people with deep pockets or people who don't mind eating from

:13:59.:14:05.

tins! Let's move on to the next one, this will be great for you guys.

:14:05.:14:09.

This is a retro camera that has been reinvented for the 21st

:14:09.:14:15.

century. We all know that Polaroid cameras are famous for instant

:14:15.:14:23.

snaps. Press this button here and take a picture. Three models

:14:23.:14:31.

together! That takes about a minute to come through. This is a 40 mega

:14:31.:14:37.

pixel digital camera in one sense. Where has the picture gone? It will

:14:37.:14:46.

take about a minute. There is the photo. Can you hear it printing? On

:14:46.:14:53.

the one hand you can take the digital photos, but you can also

:14:53.:15:03.
:15:03.:15:05.

This is great. That's really good quality. Really good. This one has

:15:05.:15:13.

that Polaroid look. Yes. That is a good picture there. You can add

:15:13.:15:18.

borders. You can edit your photos, it's got red eye correction. You

:15:18.:15:26.

can trim them. We've got some borders here. It is really clever.

:15:26.:15:34.

Let's have a look. It looks like a night out. It is really cool. A

:15:34.:15:41.

retro camera with a modern twist. Very nice. We'll sell that for

:15:41.:15:47.

dental students. How much is that? �230. Expensive but it is good.

:15:47.:15:54.

think that's well justified. Guys, grab a controller. I've got one of

:15:54.:16:00.

these. The GX Buggy. Awesome. going to hold this one up. Go on,

:16:00.:16:06.

Lewisy. This is the fastest acrobatic stunt car in the world

:16:06.:16:10.

acrobatic stunt car in the world right now. Put it on the floor.

:16:10.:16:14.

Driving skills don't come in the box. So if you are not very good,

:16:14.:16:24.
:16:24.:16:30.

don't worry. Whether you perform a good trick or a bad stunt it's got

:16:30.:16:39.

this plastic roll wing, which means it will land on its feet every time.

:16:39.:16:48.

OK. Do you like those, guys? You do, you liked it so much you bought one.

:16:48.:16:54.

They are really fast. Jay? I love it. Brilliant. Thank you to Lucy,

:16:54.:17:00.

Siva and Jay. For more information on the gadgets, e-mail us via the

:17:01.:17:08.

There's been lots of talk about the return of Eddy, Patsy and Co. This

:17:08.:17:18.
:17:18.:17:23.

You're late. I am not late. Anyway, darling, you've got work to do when

:17:23.:17:28.

I'm gone. You've got to update my website. My weapon site is me. It

:17:28.:17:38.

must be fresh and happening. Vitamin B. Drink up. Alright

:17:38.:17:47.

darling. Now, more blog, more flog. I want, "I met Ulrika at a party...

:17:47.:17:53.

My favourite cheese" Shall I Twitter that? Yes, Twitter it. City

:17:53.:17:58.

here and don't let my mother in. It's alright. I'm here already,

:17:58.:18:05.

dear. Well, howdy stranger. It looks as though your jeans have

:18:05.:18:10.

exploded. It's a skirt! It's a skirt. What are you doing here? I

:18:10.:18:15.

haven't got time. You stay here and make sure she is not ever left

:18:15.:18:20.

alone, and frisk her before she leaves. The whole house is alarmed

:18:20.:18:25.

now. Go! Go! Go! And you can see Absolutely Fabulous on Christmas

:18:25.:18:33.

Day at ten on BBC One. Pixie is with us now. I won't ask how your

:18:33.:18:38.

cooking is. Last time you were on it was terrible. What were you

:18:38.:18:46.

cooking? It was something toad with cooking? It was something toad with

:18:47.:18:52.

a lemon. Something wasn't working. This is not my forte. Have you done

:18:52.:18:58.

any cooking since? I'm really good at Heinz tomato soup. There are

:18:58.:19:03.

other brands out there which are also good. This is leftover time,

:19:03.:19:07.

so we are going to make a sprout and potato quiche. We've got

:19:07.:19:17.
:19:17.:19:20.

tarragon, old spice, sprouts, peas, lemon, eggs, cream, cabbage and

:19:20.:19:24.

mayo. And a pastry case we've cooked already. Do you like

:19:24.:19:28.

Brussels sprouts? I eat them when they are on my plate at Christmas

:19:28.:19:38.

but they are not my first... you don't hate them? I don't hate

:19:38.:19:45.

them E I kind of just eat them. Crack two eggs into that bowl.

:19:45.:19:51.

this bowl? That in that bowl, yes. The pressure's on. One, two,

:19:51.:19:56.

three... LAUGHTER It's good. There's no shell in there! That's a

:19:56.:20:02.

different way of doing it but I like it. There's a bit of shell in

:20:02.:20:09.

there. The key to that, if it goes in, you

:20:09.:20:19.
:20:19.:20:20.

can use the eggshell to get it back out. One, two, three... That was

:20:20.:20:30.

good. It's a different technique that. Might catch on. It only looks

:20:30.:20:34.

a bit mangled because it fell on this. Otherwise it would look

:20:34.:20:38.

perfect. Whisk that together. You can be quite aggressive with it,

:20:38.:20:46.

like you were with the egg. Is this cream? Cream in there. Salt and

:20:46.:20:53.

pepper. We are adding old spice for flavour. Put the zest of the lemon

:20:53.:21:02.

in there. This way? Yes. So you've learnt. Brilliant. I learnt this

:21:02.:21:06.

from last time, this skill. Perfectly done. You've mastered it.

:21:06.:21:11.

Are you left or right-handed? hand. That doesn't feel natural

:21:11.:21:20.

that way either. Slowly by surely I'm getting somewhere. What you are

:21:20.:21:24.

making there, Pixie, is all the custard, the bit that will set

:21:24.:21:32.

around it. I'm chopping all the other things. The lemon will give

:21:32.:21:37.

freshness. The potatoes that are cooked, I'm just crushing those.

:21:38.:21:42.

Herb-wise we've got tarragon, for the aniseedy flavour going on in

:21:42.:21:49.

there. Then we've got our sprouts. Is that enough? That's fine. Those

:21:49.:21:56.

all go in. We've got peas. Why have you chosen this combination? What

:21:56.:22:01.

are you likely to have left over after Christmas? Sprouts, spuds. If

:22:01.:22:07.

you've got sausages left over you can chop them and put those in.

:22:07.:22:13.

could just bungning in there? Absolutely. Slice the sprouts in

:22:13.:22:18.

half and chuck those in as well. What is likely to be most left over

:22:18.:22:25.

at the end of the day? Even if you had a bit of... I'm not sure I can

:22:26.:22:35.
:22:36.:22:39.

watch this. I'm quite impressed. When I did

:22:39.:22:44.

some cooking at my little boy's school, who is five. What they

:22:44.:22:48.

taught him to do with the knife is they said, "You make a little

:22:48.:22:54.

tunnel and the train tunnel, the knife, goes through the middle." So

:22:54.:23:03.

you don't cut your fingers. Make a tunnel. Through the tunnel. That

:23:03.:23:10.

was right wasn't it? But that finger was so hit to being hit by

:23:10.:23:17.

the train! Let's forget about that one! LAUGHTER I'm feeling stressed

:23:17.:23:25.

now. We mix that together and pour that into there. That all goes in

:23:25.:23:32.

there. Tell us something about Stevie Wonder. Stevie Wonder,

:23:32.:23:39.

amazing. He is one of my idols. People say you shouldn't meet your

:23:39.:23:43.

idols. But he was just as I expected. Was he genuinely

:23:43.:23:48.

interested in you? Was he just fantastic? I hope so. He was just

:23:48.:23:53.

lovely. He had so much time for everyone. Really gentle and humble.

:23:53.:23:57.

Someone can so much success and was just really lovely. And charisma. I

:23:57.:24:02.

love that. He certainly has that. It must be stressful to sing in

:24:02.:24:08.

front of him. I was saying before, to sit on the sofa with a team and

:24:08.:24:13.

a crew there, that must be stressful. But to sing in front of

:24:13.:24:18.

your idols... But he wasn't in the same room. He would lay down his

:24:18.:24:23.

bit and it is added afterwards. it was done at a different time.

:24:24.:24:33.
:24:34.:24:38.

I've slice ed a bit of onion. Carve a V. Like you are carving a pum

:24:38.:24:47.

kin? Yes. It's stuck. What we do is we cut that in half down the middle.

:24:47.:24:55.

With the we do is chop... Oh, no. am getting better at this stuff. I

:24:55.:25:00.

might try this when I get home. I've got onion in there. We've got

:25:00.:25:05.

our carrot as well. That's alright isn't it? I'm just worried about my

:25:05.:25:10.

thumb. I chopped my thumb doing that. It was that this year or

:25:10.:25:19.

last? I think that might have been this year. I don't know. I cut

:25:19.:25:24.

myself on the show once as well. It was one of those moments when you

:25:24.:25:30.

don't concentrate and you nick it. There was blood everywhere. We've

:25:30.:25:37.

got carrot, chestnuts, onion. Pixie, put all of that cabbage into there.

:25:37.:25:44.

Shove it all in? Yes. Our mayo goes into this as well. We squeeze a bit

:25:44.:25:49.

of lemon again, just to freshen it up. Then we add plenty of pepper, a

:25:50.:25:55.

bit of salt. Just give that a good mix. It looks at the moment when

:25:55.:26:00.

you do it that you need more mayonnaise, but you don't. People

:26:00.:26:05.

tend to put way too much mayo in a coleslaw. Then it settles. The

:26:06.:26:09.

moisture comes out and it ends up being really sloppy and greasy.

:26:09.:26:15.

What you want is just enough mayonnaise to coat the ingredients.

:26:15.:26:20.

Where are you spending Christmas, Pixie? I'm going back to my mum ace

:26:20.:26:25.

on Christmas Eve. I've got a big family on my dad's side, a big

:26:25.:26:30.

family party, lots of food and drink. I won't be cooking. Then I'm

:26:30.:26:37.

going on holiday, somewhere really nice. Cool. We've got to remember

:26:37.:26:45.

it is Pixie's birthday as well. thought you meant we were going the

:26:45.:26:55.
:26:55.:26:57.

sing the Erase your thing. -- Eraser thing. Will you do a

:26:57.:27:05.

rendition for me now? No, he is Andy Bell. Will you perform at my

:27:05.:27:10.

birthday? What are we going to do, catering or singing? We could do a

:27:10.:27:18.

bit of both. There are singing tenors at charitys do, we could do

:27:18.:27:25.

singing Erasuee and be chefs. while you plate that up we can

:27:25.:27:28.

cross to Louise, who has the answer cross to Louise, who has the answer

:27:28.:27:34.

to the Deja View. The year when Matt Busby died and Mariah Carey

:27:35.:27:39.

sang this number and the film Miracle On 34th Street was released,

:27:39.:27:49.
:27:49.:27:50.

what year was it, Tom? 1994. Anyone got it right? I'm going to do a

:27:50.:27:56.

quick tweet The Wanted from Daniel. Is it true that you are working

:27:56.:28:02.

with Rihanna on new songs? It is true. Example is our new song,

:28:02.:28:11.

coming out some time next year. date planned! That's good. The

:28:11.:28:17.

Wanted from Chloe Fisher. What do you think of One Direction? Are you

:28:17.:28:21.

raising your game? Is there a lot of competition between you boys?

:28:21.:28:28.

The boy band thing is back. We met them on the Extra Factor when we

:28:28.:28:33.

were guests. They were really nice. We are happy they did well. They

:28:33.:28:38.

weren't idiots. And we've met them again and they have stayed that way.

:28:38.:28:42.

Don't you think there should be more competition, that you should

:28:42.:28:52.
:28:52.:28:52.

have a pop at eech other? -- each other? Maybe a few years ago.

:28:52.:29:00.

That and East 17. What side were you on? I was East 17. I was Take

:29:00.:29:06.

That. I absconded. You didn't get involved? No. Pixie, are you

:29:06.:29:10.

playing Top Of The Pops. Has it been done? We've done it already.

:29:33.:29:41.

institution. That's it. Time's up. Thanks to Pixie. Is that good?
