The silver tongued fox

With nightly guests, this is going to be a tour to remember.

This fluffy-tailed fella is known across the UK.

Born in 1962, Basil had his own TV show at the young age of six (or 34 in human years) and entertained the masses up until 1984. After a well-deserved break, Basil relaunched the show in 2002 to great acclaim where it ran for a further five years.

Since then he has appeared in some the UK’s best loved programmes including The Chase, Bruce Forsyth’s The Generation Game, The Weakest Link, Celebrity Juice, The Last Leg and made a very special appearance as Dobby in French & Saunders sketch Harry Potter and the Secret Chamberpot of Azerbaijan for Comic Relief.

A mischievous character and a raconteur, the loveable fox is best known for his catchphrase “Ha Ha Ha! Boom! Boom!”

He has also had the privilege of meeting some of the most famous names around the world including ABBA and Queen Elizabeth II.
