TV's 'Milkshake Monkey' gives Gweek sanctuary 'seal' of approval
2:40pm Wednesday 11th September 2013 in News
TV's Milkshake Monkey wasn't afraid to get his waistcoat wet as he stopped in at The Cornish Seal Sanctuary on Monday.
The character from children's TV joined Channel 5 representatives as they met with the manager of the sanctuary, Trevor Broome, to give the “seal” of approval to the estuary setting and to go ahead with the filming of two episodes for the vibrant show.
The lovable monkey will now be returning to visit the seals in Gweek next Wednesday (September 18), for a day of soaking up the energetic atmosphere and hopefully not the interior of the tanks.
The shoot will happen in perfect time for the seal pup season and is sure to entertain children as well as educate them on Milkshake Monkey's friends from the sea.
The public are encouraged to visit the set and witness this rare meeting of semi-aquatic and ape, television's very own prominent primate.
