2. That’s 12 years since you had to pretend you didn’t watch it.

Unmasking The Actors Behind The Teletubbies

3. So we thought it was about time we revealed the faces behind the… other faces.

Trained ballet dancer Shelton was not the original Tinky Winky. Dave Thompson first played the role, but was reportedly removed from the show after he gave an interview in which he admitted to playing the character as a homosexual. Fans of the ’90s CBBC show Incredible Games may also remember Shelton as the mildly terrifying Dark Knight.

Before playing the coolest of all the Teletubbies Simmit was a comedian, and remains so to this day. His website claims that he is John Cleese’s secret love child, though we cannot confirm or deny this.

After leaving Teletubbyland behind, Lee went on to me one of the presenters of CBeebies, the BBC’s channel for children aged six and under. In 2001 she was the subject of controversy after appearing in the Channel 4 show Metrosexuality, in which she performed a sex act with another girl. She told The Sun, ““I didn’t take the lesbian role to be deliberately controversial. Yes, I was Po. But I am an actress too and the role looked interesting, exciting and challenging.”
