Well that's nearly it for this series of TMi. Just one more show to go and then it's all over. We can't believe it's gone so quickly! After all, it only seems like yesterday that we were arguing over who got what bunk-bed and who was prettier, Ed or Helen.
On Saturday we're going to show you our best moments & favourite guests from this series of TMi so you can expect an amazing show. Caroline's coming round the flat too for the last time and we're even going to show you behind the scenes so you get an idea of the strange place that we live in.
We don't want to tell you too much about Saturday's show so that it’s still a surprise when you watch it at 9am but if you like seeing us two goofing around you're definitely in for a treat. As well as guests like Lil' Chris, McFly, Harry Hill and Girls Aloud we'll also have the best bits from the Chinatown Challenge so you can relive all the sweat and tears! We're so pleased that there isn't a new Chinatown Challenge this week because Saturday's triathlon challenge was the hardest thing ever, we could hardly walk the next day!
Finally we want to say a BIG thank you to everyone who's written to us, posted a message, entered a competition, visited us at the flat or come down to Leicester Square, we've loved waking you up every Saturday morning over the last 6 months and hope you've enjoyed TMi too.
We're both going on holiday for a while now to recover (from ed's snoring!), but we'll back on your screens very soon with a cool new show and we can't wait to se you all again. Thanks again and byeeeee
Sam & Mark
ps - Ed & Helen say goodbye too!

We spent the afternoon in the gym getting some expert help ahead of Saturday’s challenge. I’m in with a shout, and if nothing else it allowed me to work off some of that ‘holiday weight’ from Christmas. But I know what your thinking and don’t worry, I haven’t lost my chubby cheeks!
We’re going to write a song about a TMi viewer who got in touch with us on last week’s message board. She told us a really embarrassing story which was so funny we had to make a song up about it.
Saturday’s Show is going to be massive and we’ve come up with loads of great things for it in the flat this week. make sure you’re watching at 9am because EMMA BUNTON is going to be in the studio and MCFLY will be performing their new single, ‘Transylvania’ for the first time ever anywhere in the world! and as well as that we’ve got LIL' CHRIS'S brand new video so don’t be late!!!!!!!!!!!!

This week’s Chinatown Challenge is going to be a doddle as it’s a swimming, cycling & running challenge and I’m better than Sam at all of those! My new red toe nails also went down well at the swimming pool when we went training today. The girls haven’t softened me up that much because I’m out for revenge this week after last week's embarrassment. Although, after our girly chats with Flack and Helen, forfeits like dressing up in a skirt won't bother me too much!
GUESS WHATS BACK? High School Musical made a welcome return to ‘Surely you can’t make a game out of that’ this week. (I’ve been trying to suggest it for weeks). I hope you all remember the dance routine because I certainly don’t. Maybe you can help me out, after all, ‘were all in this together!’ Get it? Good one. We’re playing ‘Surely’ for the last time this week so this afternoon we picked all our favourite props from the last few months to feature on Saturday. It’s going to be brilliant!!
Ed & Helen added up the results of the flat vote this week, you chose whether we should be treated like school kids or animals for the day so thanks a lot for sending us back to school! It was was not at all like High School Musical! Forget white tracksuits, basketball and cheerleaders. More like, bossy teachers and boring uniforms. I was on my best behaviour as always, but was influenced by the trouble maker of the school, yep, you have guessed it – Sam. I knew I shouldn’t have hung around with him.
Saturday should be better than brilliant, really brilliant, because MCFLY are performing their new single live in the studio, EMMA BUNTON’s coming in and the girls told me they have got the perfect game for me to choose the Birthday Bingo month. If that wasn’t enough I’ll be answering a big ‘Question Mark’ too! So I’ll see you all on Saturday at 9am on BBC TWO!!!
As me and my girlies say, Love and Lollies

We’ve been in the flat 20 weeks now and it's time to ask myself a few questions….
1. What colour do I want to paint my nails?
2. Should I wear my hair up or down?
3. who is the fittest out of McFly?
As you can see Caroline’s girly night in and sleepover at the flat this week has had a bit of an affect on me! We had a right old gossip, had Karaoke, ice cream, midnight feasts, shared secrets and had beauty treatment. Sam and Ed didn’t really get into it, but me, Helen and Caroline had done it all before so I thought it was cool.
This week’s Chinatown Challenge is going to be a doddle as it’s a swimming, cycling & running challenge and I’m better than sam at all of those!

I am the champions, I am the champions, I am the champions…..of the world! It feels good to be in the flat as this week's Chinatown Challenge winner. I haven’t had time to rub it in Mark's face though because as soon as we got up on Monday, it was time for school. YUK!
Thanks to you lot, we spent today being treated like school kids, wearing uniforms, doing spelling tests and eating cold lumpy school dinners. We tried to get revenge (like we always do! haha) but this time head mistress Helen, was really strict. First I had to stand in the corner, then I had to write lines, then I had to go out of the room and all I did was throw rice pudding all over Ed! I think I have learnt my lesson.
This morning we have been training like badgers for this week's BIG Chinatown Challenge. I am pooped! (that’s a cool word that means tired). Helen told us that it was an Ironman challenge which means doing 3 sports one after each other, cycling, swimming, and running! This is going to be the most tiring challenge since the pop quiz! I don’t think I will have enough energy for the forfeit if I lose, unless it's sleeping on a mattress in Leicester Square!

To practice for the Chinatown Challenge this morning we tried skiing on grass. We went really quick, when Helen pulled us down that was! So we tried to do it properly at a Snow Dome in Milton Keynes. When we got to the dome it was pretty much downhill from there (get it? Skiing? Down hill!?). Anyway, Helen was ‘awesome’, I was ‘da bomb’, Mark needed to get a ‘move on’ and Ed got it ‘all wrong’! Once again we had an excellent teacher, aTMi viewer called Josh. He was wicked at skiing and I think he is going to be a champion when he’s older. If I win on Saturday, it's all down to him
Mark spent the entire car journey back from the snowdome teasing me about my Chinatown failures over the last few weeks. He just kept going on & on & on & on & on about his in his silly brummie accent. As a punishment I made Helen stop the car so I could sit in the front leaving him with windypops Ed in the back. That’ll teach him!
That about sums it up for this week! It was so much fun though, and I think your votes are going to be safe with me on Saturday. It's time to stop Mark's run of luck! Talking of Saturday, our mates Simon Webbe and Lil' Chris are in so I’m looking forward to blowing them away with the song we came up with in the flat. We wrote it about a TMi viewer called Kelsey who wanted to be a spy. It’s amazing even if I say so myself.
Anyway, I’m off to go and have a think of way to sneak into Caroline’s Corner this week… see you on Saturday!
