Multi-Coloured Swap Shop
Saturday Mash-Up! is a British Saturday morning children's magazine entertainment programme on CBBC and BBC Two first broadcast on 30 September 2017. It is presented by Joe Tasker, Harpz Kaur and a puppet monster called Stanley performed by Dave Chapman.
It is CBBC's first series in this genre since TMi moved to Fridays in 2010. It is said to "continue the tradition of iconic Saturday morning programmes such as Live & Kicking, Going Live!, Saturday Superstore and Multi-Coloured Swap Shop".
A second series aired from 29 September 2018 on CBBC (with repeats on BBC Two from the previous Saturday morning). A third series started on 1 February 2020. However, due to the 2019-2020 Coronavirus pandemic, the show was presented from Tasker, Kaur, and Chapman's houses via video-link under the name 'Saturday Mash-Up! House Party'. from 4 April until the end of the series on 30 May. The 3rd series resumed the on 7 November to broadcast the remaining episodes in the series.
A new series began on 23 January 2021 although it is still listed as series 3.
Spin-off series Summer Mash-Up aired during the 2020 summer holidays in a 30-minute Thursday afternoon slot (temporarily replacing Blue Peter). In 2018 and 2019 special programmes were also produced as part of the CBBC Summer Social TV coverage.
Every week, the series broadcasts live from dock10, MediaCityUK in Salford. The show includes celebrity guests, games, sketches and CBBC shows, and focuses on live chat with children across the United Kingdom, either on the phone or via the web.
Up until the COVID-19 pandemic, the show was filmed in front of a studio audience who are children. When the show resumed production after quarantine, to follow the health guidelines, the episodes were filmed without the kid audience, and all celebrity guests practiced social distancing.
As of Series 2, viewers' chosen celebrity had to answer questions in the space of ninety seconds, and can avoid being covered with gunge by answering the question correctly. If they answer incorrectly, they have a bucket of slime poured over them. At the end of the ninety seconds, the celebrity must answer a final question, which is always outlandish and nearly impossible to answer correctly. If answered incorrectly, the celebrity is slimed heavily with multiple buckets. To date, no one has ever answered the final question correctly. In the Christmas episodes there is no slime vote. All guests get covered in slime and sing a Christmas song.
Celebrities who have been gunged/slimed include Steve Backshall, DanTDM, Vick Hope, Kimberly Wyatt, Naomi Wilkinson, Lindsey Russell (twice), New Hope Club, Road Trip, Oti Mabuse, Lewys Ball, Olivia Grace and Lovevie, Colson Smith, Mark Rhodes, Briony Williams and Cat Henstridge.
This segment is grand finale of each show.
How Many Things in the Thing?
A number of an object (for example, footballs) are placed into another object (for example, a phonebox). Viewers at home on the phone must guess what number of an object is in the other object.
Make Me Viral
Viewers are asked to send in a picture of themselves doing something different each week (for example, throwing away their homework).
Each week, a viewer watching at home is chosen to make various decisions to make. These include choosing what episode of a programme to show and choosing who does a task like tidying up the studio or eating a gross item.
Two celebrities must push a shopping trolley into a pyramid of 800 toilet rolls to see how many they can collect. Each toilet roll is worth a point, with the golden toilet roll being worth 10 points and the brown toilet roll causing them to lose 5 points. They can choose between 3 trollies, which change each week. While the crew count the rolls Nelson plays a game with the contestant called "Jonny's random supermarket item pricing game while we count the toilet rolls". The loser is hit in the face with two custard pies.
Stars Behind Bars
A celebrity is 'locked up in jail' and answers as many questions they can in 100 seconds.
A/two celebrity/s is put in detention and has to answer questions about themselves until the school bell rings. On one occasion, instead of a celebrity, Penfold from Danger Mouse was used.
