Then she died. Naturally we might add. At a loss as to what to do (and a feature short for The Saturday Show) we bought a new hamster.
That hamster was Horse, our super talented sports predicting Syrian hamster.
Each week we’d snatch her from her space pod home and put her in a ball to predict the outcomes of sporting fixtures.
Here you can see Horse in her Halloween prediction special.
Unfortunately she wasn’t very good, more interested in trying to escape the confines of her sporting arena than scoring goals. But since we’d paid £7 for her we were obliged to love her all the same.
She now lives a life of luxury in her space pod, eating nuts and plotting intricate ways to escape Casa Del Colin and Matt and make a name for herself on the drag queen scene.
You can find Horse on Twitter, under the name @horsethehamster, spurting her random nonsense about nuts and the joys of Teletext to anyone that will listen.
