1:30 am
this is bbc news. we'll have the headlines and all the main news stories for you at the top of the hour straight after this programme. so, you know other programmes, this time of year, they have an advent calendar where it's an opportunity to play their best bits of the year gone by. so, the today programme did billy connolly today, who they spoke to earlier this year. lovely, although nothing can ever be better than the blue peter making their advent hanging thing with a coat hanger, but i'm ageing myself by saying that, but i have really happy memories of watching that. i know i'd love to do a craft—based version, but all we've got to work with is... laughter. so, we're going to do our own typically rubbish newscast version, which is called the badvent calendar, where people suggest our most cringey moments of the year.
1:31 am
which is a good idea cos that's guaranteed to find at least 25, isn't it? exactly! at least during the christmas day episode. anyway, yesterday, it was me asking a really cringey question to borisjohnson. today, it's me commenting multiple times this morning on the news about today's biggest political news story. 0h. snogging... snogg|ng... smooching. .. kissing... intimate oral contact... that last bit, was that... i know... crosstalk. i'm trying to find euphemisms! was not truly necessary? was that truly necessary? that sounds sort of a medical definition that i don't... you know? the word itself has got enough... whatsit, on the matter...? onomatopoeia? yeah. is that what it sounds like? it's like, "splash". "splash" is onomatopoeia. maybe "smooch". laughter. i never thought i'd have to say that word because i would like to make clear the reason why you were saying it through the day is because cabinet ministers used that language.

naked light —— nationwide lockdown. there's been an intensive focus on what happened in downing street. it emerged yesterday morning with a tremendous scoop from our colleagues at the daily mirror, who reported there had been a big knees up with many as 50 people there. just at the moment, what was called the kent variance was sweeping the country, and the day before, borisjohnson did the cancelling of christmas, and suddenly, lockdown was back upon us. because of that revelation, obviously everyone was trying to find exactly what did go on. do you want to know what i found out? at the end of november, there was a bit of a leaving do, but not a for long leaving do, but not a for long leaving do. a member of staff

1:35 am
they didn't really deny it. the prime minister refused to deny it on three different occasions. later, ispoke it on three different occasions. later, i spoke to somebody who had been there, who told me that there were a few dozen people there, people had been invited from outside. it was an official invite that people have been invited... there was food and drink laid on, even some games. that's a 'a l on, even some games. that's a party. what — on, even some games. that's a party, what games? _ on, even some games. that's a party, what games? i— on, even some games. that's a party, what games? i didn't - on, even some games. that's a i party, what games? i didn't get into that! there _ party, what games? i didn't get into that! there was _ party, what games? i didn't get into that! there was some - party, what games? i didn't get into that! there was some sort| into that! there was some sort of light—hearted awards ceremony, the kind of end of year... ceremony, the kind of end of ear... ., ,, , year... that sounds pretty organised- _ year... that sounds pretty organised. i'm _ year. .. that sounds pretty organised. i'm not- year... that sounds pretty organised. i'm not being l year... that sounds pretty i organised. i'm not being a moral arbiter, _ organised. i'm not being a moral arbiter, but - organised. i'm not being a moral arbiter, but clearly, i organised. i'm not being a l moral arbiter, but clearly, i moralarbiter, but clearly, i talked to somebody who moral arbiter, but clearly, i talked to somebody who was there and was told it was going on past midnight. not surprisingly, given what the rest of the country was going through, that has really upset

on this episode of newscast. we will be back very soon. big. will be back very soon. by, everyone- _ good morning. this week, it's been quite a fickle weather story to tell, undulating from cold and crisp back to milder and sometimes wet. and that's the story we've got first thing this friday morning. milderfor all of us, but by the time head towards the weekend, once again, we turn back into that cold bright story with some showers turning increasingly wintry on the hills. but that here and now, we have got these weather fronts but for the here and now, we have got these weather fronts pushing in from the atlantic. they bump into colder air, so for a time we air, so for a time, we will see a wintry mix. however, behind it, you can

are set to return as we head into the weekend. once again, noticeably colder for all. so, we start off on saturday with some early showery rain once again easing from the southeast and then a case of sunny spells and scattered showers. some showers will be of sleet and snow perhaps even for some at lower levels as temperatures sit around 4—5 degrees. further south of that with a little more sunshine, perhaps not quite as cold — 7—9 c the high. noticeably cooler once again for all of us. that's it, take care.
