Well, this is fine state of affairs!
I returned from the secret Olympic Training Camp just in time to
get my application in for a major role in the Olympics and find that all I am being offered is a body double for a Corgi. ( Apparently the one I'm replacing has a deep aversion to Daniel Craig and can't stop attacking his ankles).
During the filming I tried to sneak on the helicopter behind the Queen but without success so I raced off down to the Thames just in time to get on the speed-boat with David Beckham and the Olympic torch .Thrilling but who knew the boat would be going so fast? By the time we had got there I was so sea-sick they had to carry me in and that's how I came to be in the Olympic Opening Ceremony in one of the beds in the NHS scene. Needless to say the little Boy who was supposed to be in the bed was very annoyed and had a great tantrum when they said they needed the bed for someone else- ME!
The other Bears were deeply impressed to see me on the telly. But as I explained to the younger ones when One is a international celebrity, no big national event is complete without One somewhere in shot, or at least that's what the Queen said to me when we were together in make-up!
I was just getting ready for my starring role at the Blakesley Show on August 4th when they broke the news that due to the soggy ground conditions the Show had been CANCELLED!!!
Still I have BBC iplayer on 24/7 with re-runs of my starring role in the Olympics. I wouldn't say it had gone to my head but I am thinking of getting myself painted just to capture the moment for posterity y'know!
