|2||Good evening, I'm Bush Baby. Night is about to fall, so I'm wide awake. I'm a nocturnal creature, night time is when you might find me up and about. Bush babies are very cheeky and full of mischief. You want to see a magic trick? Oh, I've got some tricks up my sleeve. Whoops. This isn't my first competition and I've been training. This mask might obscure who I am but I think you'll agree my fez is familiar. Tonight I'm bright-eyed, bushy-tailed and ready to go.|
|4||In my first appearance, I used my magic skills to trick the panel. But now the real fun begins, as I whip up a special dish of confusion and misdirection with a big dollop of cuteness on the side. In my last performance the panel might not have said thank you for the music, but they definitely had a great time. The best bit is they haven't got a clue who I am, and I am here to play the game. At the end of the day, the winner takes it all. I've cobbled together a game plan to become the ultimate master of deception. I have a great disguise. Yes. Am I good at accents? Absolutely. Am I a trickster? That's the name of the game. Tonight, I'm using my whole box of tricks to make sure, I skip through to the next round.|
|5||I was cooking on gas, but the panel haven't given a guess yet that's truly worth it's salt. This little bushbaby couldn't be happier. Let the games continue. I might be a bushbaby, but I think I've been very well behaved, although famously good behaviour isn't something I've been known for. [Okay, everybody stand by] Roger, Roger, are you there, Roger? But I'm not complaining. I've had a great run and I'm here to put on a show. My favourite thing has always been. to entertain, ha, I love the attention. In fact, I made it my job. But don't get me wrong, I'm very serious about being funny come check off me out sometime darling. Tonight, I'm putting all the jokes aside.|
