It's Tuesday and in the packing department there's mild confusion as to why a stage manager for Children in Need would order two pairs of fox ears to be sent to Elstree, in readiness for a dress rehearsal on Thursday 14th November, when Children in Need on Friday 15th is so very obviously focused on bears!
The thought passed and the parcel was dispatched and on Friday night our Director was watching Children in Need on the television when a group called Ylvis took to the stage with some special guests to perform The Fox, all dressed in fox costumes.
As they danced and say their way through the number, there was much excitement as to how or when we were possibly going to see the fox ears we had sent to Elstree being used and as they got to the end of the number, there was none other than Sir Terry Wogan and Zoe Ball standing in front of the studio screen, wearing our fox ears.
Needless to say we are chuffed to have been involved in such an epic show as BBC Children in Need
Apologies for the poor picture quality but these images were taken on a mobile phone from the BBC footage of Children in Need on iplayer. We tweeted during the live show and said that if Zoe Ball could get a picture of her and Sir Terry on Twitter wearing their ears, we will donate £100 to Children in Need!! Watch this space!
