Tango the Cat has become something of a local celebrity in Newquay, Cornwall, after an appearance on the UK television show, “Question Time.”
The popular show was being recorded at Treviglas community college, where Tango’s owner, Jackie Ellery works in the school canteen. Ellery got a call from a neighbor, asking if she’d seen Tango on the telly. “I’d been doing something else at the time but rewound it and there he was.”
Apparently, Tango’s curiosity had gotten the best of him, and he snuck in the back door of the studio, crept beneath a mixing desk and found his way onto the set.
“It’s lovely – he’s a mischievous cat anyway and because we live so close to the school he’s often in school grounds,” said Ellery.
“The sixth formers know him really well. He must have known something was going on.”
The show’s guests were oblivious to the feline padding around behind them. A stage manager nabbed Tango and released him outside.
Since his fleeting appearance on national TV, one-year-old Tango has become something of a local celebrity, appearing on the internet and discussed on social networking site Twitter.
Ms Ellery added: “Everyone is coming up and telling me about Tango’s appearance.”
