BBC Journalist Mobbed By Lemurs During Live New Report From Zoo

So funny.

During a live broadcast from Banham Zoo a BBC newsreader got more than he bargained for when he was jumped on by a group of lemurs.

Alex Dunlop was at the zoo in Norfolk when all the primates started to jump on him and even have a nibble of his finger too.

The video has been shared on Twitter and Alex really did struggle with  the aggressive primates while he filmed BBC Look East.

At one point during the clip you can hear Alex saying ‘You little ****’.

So funny.
