  Basil Brush joins the Blue Peter cast
Updated 17 January 2003, 21.11
Basil Brush returns to kid's telly on Blue Peter
Blue Peter has got a foxy new presenter to help them out with their top showbiz interviews.

But it's not the latest TV babe who's joining the show, it's kids' telly favourite Basil Brush!

The bushy tailed puppet will be in the studio on Fridays to talk to the top celebs and go through letters that have been sent in by viewers.

Basil began his new job on Friday when he grilled chart star Craig David.

Talking about being on the show, Basil said: "I've been a fan of old BP ever since I was a young fox cub. It's a much loved national institution - a bit like me."

And the other presenters of the show - Konnie Huq, Liz Barker, Simon Thomas and Matt Baker - are delighted to be working with such a well-known TV legend.

Konnie said: "Basil is a real star and having someone of his calibre on the show is a real thrill for all of us. It's going to be a huge pleasure working with him."
