He switches the radio on, which reminds him that Sweep had entered a song contest, sending a tape off of his own song! Matthew explains how awful Sweeps song is and that it's quite embarassing that he entered! Matthew decides to play his Alvin Stardust tape, but the tape is missing and in it's place he finds a sausage! Matthew goes to ask Sweep about the sausage and where his cassette tape is. Unfortunately Sweep has recorded over Alvin Stardust, as he used that tape to record his song on! Matthew turns on the radio, for the results of the song contest and the winner is Sweep! Sooty decides that Sweep is on his way to becoming a super star! The gang start treating Sweep like a star and Matthew soon changes his opinion of Sweeps song!
