WHACKY

former Big Brother housemate Paul Ferguson got up close and personal with some beasts of the jungle for the launch of a new show.

Always the entertainer Ferguson, or 'Bubble' as he was known in the Big Brother 2 house, posed for cameras while holding a 10ft boa constrictor, a tarantula and a scorpion for the launch of production of The Jungle Book last Friday.

He will be playing Bagheera the Panther and Custard the hunter in the show

which also stars Darragh Mortell from BBC's The Story of Tracey Beaker, as Mowgli, Boogie Beebies presenter Pete Hillier and is narrated by Kim Tserkezie from CBBC's Balamory.

Ferguson said: "It's a really fun family show. It's a take on the classic Jungle Book story, there are all the big songs in their like Bear Necessities but it's just been updated a little bit."

After leaving the Big Brother house in 2002 Ferguson went to study drama at the Guildford School of Acting and has since appeared in several pantomimes, a stage production of David Mamet's Edmund and the Christmas special of hit TV show The Office.

In addition to acting he has directed productions of High School Musical and Pocahontas, both of which appeared at the Woodville Halls last year, and has written a number of plays, the latest of which Gut Busters he co-wrote with his wife Caroline who he met at drama schoo .

The 29-year-old clearly likes to keep himself busy and in addition to his acting and directing work he is currently studying to be a drama teacher. His seven-year-old daughter, Briony, is taking drama classes and looks set to follow in her father's footsteps.

He said: "Briony is already involved in acting, she really loves it. She's been taking classes for a while now. She's a good little actress."

Paul Ferguson is appearing The Jungle Book at the Woodville Halls from May 29 to 31. Tickets cost £13.50 and are available from the box office on 01474 33 77 44.
