Bear Facts Controversy surrounds the BBC again following the annual 'Children in Need Appeal'.

For many years the BBC have used 'Pudsey Bear' a partially sighted children's toy as the 'face' of the appeal. However under an agreement that dates back several years the use of 'Pudsey' was only agreed with the northern town subject to several conditions which have subsequently been breached by the corporation.

Whippet Quick

A spokesman for Pudsey town council said today, 'The original agreement set down the following requirements:

  1. The Blue Peter dog would be a whippet for the next 10 years.
  2. The compulsory dish on 'Masterchef' would be Yorkshire pudding. With the choice of aperitif limited to Tetley's or Theakston's.
  3. Harry Gration would be the next Dr Who with his glamorous assistant Christa.

We are proud of our town where the birds fly backwards to keep muck out of their eyes and need to protect our name.

A spokesman said today, 'We have sent our chief negotiator to sort this problem out, unfortunately every time he types 'Pudsey' into the SatNav he gets the error message 'oop north'.

Jonathan Ross was unavailable for comment.
