Pharaoh the llama (from Faster Lente Llamas) was thrilled to be invited to join Phillip Schofield’s How To Spend It Well at Christmas for the show’s third series.  RDF, the production company, had initially hoped to simply have a llama standing alongside Phillip as he tested various llama related toys. However, as the date to filming approached, other ideas were discussed with a more interactive experience between Phillip and Pharaoh.

Tina and Chris Gambell travelled with Pharaoh to a residence in Oxted where the show is recorded. Pharaoh was a massive hit with all crew members who popped in to visit Pharaoh throughout the day. Finally, it was Pharaoh’s time on set as he walked through a beautifully decorated Chrismassy front door entrance.

Once Phillip and the crew realised just how patient, calm and friendly Pharaoh was, a series of other sketches were filmed, including Phillip walking with Pharaoh in to the kitchen announcing to his wife, Steph, “Honey, I know you are always saying not to bring guests home for dinner but….” and another where he chops a carrot and shares it with Pharaoh, who readily accepted the treat.

Tina Gambell showed other ways of being around Pharaoh other than just standing next to him and with that in mind, Phillip and Steph did not hesitate in giving Pharaoh huge cuddles and Phillip scratched Pharaoh’s back while singing “Good King Wenceslas”. The itchy spot being correctly discovered and scratched led to Pharaoh’s head and mouth showing his pleasure, and it certainly did look as though he were singing the Carol.
