Mr Blobby Costume
About this deal
No one on the tube seems to understand the motto: “If you see something unusual, report it to staff …” But, after squishing through the barriers at Piccadilly Circus, I’m a bona fide celebrity. Buses toot, tourists pose, small children look terrified and motorists yell: “Blobby!” out of their windows. I rang a trusted agent, who said: ‘I can only think of one person’ – Barry Killerby, a classically trained Shakespearean actor,” says Leggo. “He brought such fantastic physical comedy to what was essentially a big pink rubber blob.” His demand has waxed and waned alongside Edmonds’ fame (today’s Guardian booking is only his second since Covid). “There’s more mileage in Alan Sugar, but there’s more Sugars about,” he says. “People assumed it was me in the Blobby costume at first,” but Gold wasn’t involved in House Party. He doubts any of the Blobbys he has met (usually at corporate events) have been official. And, unlike the actual Edmonds, he can’t fly a helicopter. “I’ve been in one twice and I thought I was going to fall out.”

I’m beginning to wish I had an actual, rigid Blobby outfit. There’s something disconcerting about how mine keeps deflating of its own accord right at the moment when the Guardian photographer Linda is trying to get the money shot. “I’m sure this happens to all the Blobbys,” she says.

This is exciting news – confirmation of an unaccounted-for Danish Mr Blobby. “I wouldn’t get too excited: it was probably thrown away like that picture of Mr Blobby in a skip when the BBC sold Television Centre in 2013.” Mr Blobby in a skip ups the count to seven. But how am I supposed to go to the loo? Linda has to help me in and out of my outfit, like I’m a five-year-old. And I thought failing to keep inflated was embarrassing.
