Just when you think you've seen it all on the telly along come the BBC with an orangutan on their breakfast show.

A wonderful piece of TV and the only let down is that he wasn't actually real but is in fact an elaborate ruse used on their documentary shows to lure other animals in and film them. He has cameras in his eyes and mimics the actions of other  orangutans to lure them in.

An early contender for one of the best TV moments of the year.
