The veteran entertainer Bob Carolgees has announced that he is going to be returning to Saturday morning TV with a brand new companion, Jamie The Dog. 

Speaking to our Chief Reporter, Carolgees said that his new sidekick would have a unique and lovable personality.

He said, ‘Jamie is a fun-loving, peaceful pup with a heart of gold, just don’t rub him up the wrong way.’

’In rehearsals last week I joked that Emu was the greatest TV puppet ever and he hit the roof.’

’I still haven’t perfected his accent yet. I think it needs to be a mixture of scouse and Norwegian.’

There has been a huge reaction to the news on social media.

One user posted on Twitter, ‘This dog is our dog.’
