Mackenzie Crook’s Worzel Gummidge is taking on ‘Guy Forks’ in an exclusive trailer for the upcoming BBC One special.
The family drama, which is based on Barbara Euphan Todd’s classic books, is returning for a Bonfire Night special this Saturday, which sees the titular scarecrow’s cousin Guy Forks come to Scatterbrook.
In the trailer, which can be exclusively shared by RadioTimes.com, we’re introduced to After Life‘s Paul Kaye as Guy – the scarecrow cousin of Worzel who’s taken his rightful place at the top of the Scatterbrook bonfire when Worzel stops by to say hello.
“You should think about retiring, come out to the fields and scare some crows,” Worzel tells Guy, who replies: “Ha! Standing still all day?”
Guy then manages to convince Worzel to swap places with him, with Worzel telling John and Susan: “Anything he can do, I can do too!”
Of course, Worzel doesn’t seem to realise what he’s signed himself up for and finds himself stuck at the top of the bonfire, with Susan heard saying: “Worzel’s in danger. We have to find Guy Forks!”
