Mel and Sue and Basil Brush, too. The new Generation Game will feature the boom boom fox of yore, it's been revealed...
Basil Brush will be a rather surprising new addition to the revamped Generation Game, set to air on BBC One later this year.
Mel Giedroyc and Sue Perkins are to host the new version of the classic game show, and The Sun had the scoop on Basil's re-emergence from the shadows, as puppeteer Michael Winsor broke down the skinny on the fox's decision to unretire for the new series:
"It’s top secret at the moment. We are doing pop-ups to surprise Mel and Sue," he confirmed, before adding "We did one episode and he was such a success we ended up doing four. They want us back on Saturday nights. We want to get the family together watching again. We’re fed up with Bgt and Pointless.
