If show business was a Muppet, Mr Adam Lowes would be elbow deep in it’s rectum. Behold his latest inside scoop.

HOLLYWOOD – The entertainment industry was rocked last week by the sad announcement that Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy had decided to part, but another Muppet has seen this as an opportune moment to make his own declaration to fans around the world.

Affable supporting player and Kermit’s right hand man Fozzie Bear has outed himself and now identifies as a ‘bear’ in a gay cultural parlance. The beloved Muppet who once coined the iconic catchphrase, “Wocka Wocka Wocka!” had this to say:

After Kermit and Piggy’s decision to go public with their news, I felt it was the perfect time for me to let my fans know the truth about my sexual preferences. For too long I’ve had to keep my true lifestyle suppressed, and as anyone in a similar situations will understand, it’s been a tough time.

Thankfully Fozzie states he has received nothing but full support amongst this fellow Muppets (“Kermit is dedicating any future performances of Rainbow Connection to me”) although there are a couple of exceptions:

I think it’s a generational thing, but Statler and Waldorf have made some particularly crude and unwarranted remarks since I informed them of my news. I hope this doesn’t persist as I would hate to see our friendship dissolve, however fraught it’s been throughout the years.

GLAD have enthusiastically welcomed the news and have urged any other Muppets who live a closeted lifestyle to consider revealing their true feelings to the world.

Fozzy will be performing his one man show at G-A-Y in London next week.
