My zoo TV debut

By Chas McKenzie

I made my TV debut at the zoo...which was the first of many!

The programme was One by One [a series about the first veterinary surgeon to specialise in zoo and wildlife medicine] and this particular story line involved someone breaking into the zoo and the actor Rob Heyland had to chase him off.

But he had to run through the zebra enclosure, so to make sure the zebra's were ok, they made me up as an extra to stand in the paddock with them so when they ran through they didn't get anxious.

They made me up with these big sideburns!
