    Good Morning Britain fans weren't impressed on Wednesday morning (October 19) when a TV icon appeared on-screen.

    Entertainment reporter Richard Arlond brought Christmas to the GMB studio two months early and announced that Basil Brush has put himself forward for Christmas number one with a brand new song.

    But despite the festive cheer in the studio, fans at home weren't on board and instead slammed the TV legend.

    Fans at home urged that the famous puppet should be "left in the 1970s" and claimed that his voice "was different" with some claiming it to be the "worst".

    One fan took to Twitter and fumed: "Please please take Basil Brush back to the seventies and leave him there!"

    While another slammed the "new" voice of the puppet and said: "Worst Basil Brush voice ever!."

    "Basil Brush doesn’t sound anything like the original – as if Richard couldn’t tell," echoed a third.

    This came as Richard Arnold announced that the children's TV star will be releasing "Boom Boom It's Christmas Again" next month.

    The track will feature Mr Blobby and Zippy – meaning it will likely be a joyous and nostalgic occasion for many.

    Basil's track comes as he and his throwback pals attempt to raise money for charity, with proceeds going to the Shooting Star Hospice and Save The Children.

    After Richard announced the Christmassy news, Richard Madeley then asked if it was the "same bloke" still doing Basil Brush's voice.

    Fans at home were quick to call out Richard for "outing Basil as a puppet".

    "Madeley crushing childhoods by suggesting Basil Brush is operated by a human hand," penned one.

    While another added: "Well done Richard Madeley. You’ll be telling things about Santa next."

    And a third slammed: "Richard Maedley gets worse, he just tried to out Basil Brush as a puppet!"
