Basil is following puppet rival Sooty into the business

The popular puppet fox joins a string of celebs selling greetings online, including Strictly’s Shirley Ballas and Coronation Street’s Bill Roache.

A blurb on the Celeb VM website reads: “Basil Brush is a star with an outstanding ability to entertain and make people of all ages laugh and smile.

“He is cheeky, irreverent, charming, naughty, quick-witted and foxy but at the same time he’s also kind, caring and affectionate.”

In a recently-recorded message he complained: “I haven’t had any furlough payment, for this furloughed fox.”

Basil first hit screens in 1962 and recently enjoyed a comeback with guest appearances on Celebrity Juice, The Last Leg and playing the house-elf Dobby in French & Saunders’ Harry Potter sketch for Comic Relief.

Earlier this year Basil read a eulogy at the funeral of co-star Derek Fowlds, known as Mr Derek, who died in February aged 82.

The puppet popped up in the pulpit to pay tribute to the Yes Minister actor, telling jokes and delivering his trademark Boom! Boom!
