Actor Isaac Blake is taking a TV production company to an industrial tribunal.
The Sun reports that he:
...went to hospital twice because the costume he wore as a Tombliboo was faulty. Once he was ordered to jump up and down on a chair after a camera allowing him to see out of the suit failed.
He said: “I didn’t feel safe, but they just told me to get on with it.”
Trained dancer Mr Blake fell off the chair and suffered bruising.
Another time he says he was off for a week with pelvic injuries after leaning over for long periods in the animatronic suit. Mr Blake also claims he was discriminated against and verbally abused for being homosexual.
Apparently a Tombliboo is a character from a kids' TV show called The Night Garden.
