In the special episode, Sir Jonathan reviews several product designs sent in by Blue Peter viewers through a series of video messages from the children behind the designs. On receiving his gold badge, he called the honour "absolutely incredible". As a mark of honour for the programme, Sir Jonathan and his team made ‘something very special‘, a unique Blue Peter badge crafted from solid aluminium through a 10-hour process, and presented it to Barney in true Blue Peter style saying, "Here’s one that we made earlier."
Blue Peter, the world's longest-running children's television programme, has only give out around 1,000 of these badges to special individuals including David Beckham, JK Rowling, Tom Daley, Damian Hirst and The Queen.
