BBC want you to dress as ‘paedophile’ Elvis Presley to celebrate Children in Need

THE BBC has not been hyping Children in Need as much as other years. (See Jimmy Savile.) But it’s on with the telethon. And the BBC has tips on how to make the day special. You can dress up in fancy dress. BBC tips include:

Fancy Dress

Wherever you are, it’s always fun to dress up. Whether you work at a school, supermarket or in an office, it’s easy to organise a fancy dress day! Over the years, millions of people up and down the country have dressed up in crazy outfits in aid of BBC Children in Need and in the record-breaking 2011 Appeal we all went a bit spotty!

2. …You could create a theme… go back in time to the swinging sixties or live the celeb lifestyle as a ‘Hollywood Honey’ or maybe even go to work as the King! The list is literally endless!

4. …Always get sponsored by people you trust rather than strangers.

The advice is illustrated by a photo of a man dressed as Elvis Presley. That’s the Elvis who, according to the book Baby, Let’s Play House by Alanna Nash, liked young girls.

The Mail noted:

Most famously there was his future wife, Priscilla Beaulieu, who was just 14 – ten years his junior – when they met in September 1959. Although sexual from the start, their relationship was portrayed as a sweet and innocent triumph of love across the age divide. In fact, it was just one of Presley’s many unsettling liaisons with minors in the years following his rise to fame.

In other Pudsey news, the BBC has tips:

If you want to have Pudsey (i.e. someone in a Pudsey suit) at a Children In Need event there’s an awful lot you’re told to remember: The guidelines are

– Pudsey is a BEAR not HUMAN.
– Pudsey does not speak.
– Pudsey is a fun, loveable, appealing five year old male.
– Do not approach children, let them come to you.
– Pudsey’s hands should ALWAYS be visible in photographs.
– Pudsey cannot hold children for health and safety reasons.
– Please do not put clothes on Pudsey.
– Use antiseptic wipes before and after each use to wipe around the inside of the helmet/head
area (not the fur).

That advice was introduced in August 2011. Conspiracy theorists will want to know that the Beeb knew back then..? Still, as Jimmy Savile said, it’s all for charity…
