London - (Puppet On A String): The charity fundraiser will also see Prince Charles offered the chance to play drunken sot Lord Charles in a movie sequel to the 1966 children's smash-hit TV show.
The role of ventriloquist Ray Alan, the show's creator who died earlier this week, has been earmarked for Lord Ashcroft for whom glovepuppetry is a natural second calling.
Filming is due to start during the Summer Recess on location at ex-Tory MP Sir Peter Viggers's Gosport pile, home of the notorious taxpayer-funded £1,645 duck house.
The show's original dummies have been on display for a number of years at the Len Insull Exhibition at Bantock House, near Wolverhampton.
They may now replace the Princess DI and Dodi Fayed shrine at Harrabs department store in Knightsbridge.
