The large bear, who starred in popular TV show Rainbow between 1972 and 1992, spoke out after rumours appeared online that he is now employed as MEP for North West England, serving as Nigel Farage’s second in command.
“I think this is probably the funniest thing I’ve ever read about myself on the internet. I’m all for it.”, Bungle told an ITV journalist this morning.
But the he soon poured cold water over the rumours, saying:
“Considering I’d been working on Rainbow for three years before the actual UKIP guy was born, it makes it very difficult indeed for this to be true.”
“But I do find it really funny that people are making things like this up.”
