The elephant in the room

Lulu the elephant's visit to the Blue Peter studios remains one of the classic moments in the programme's history. She began peeing close to presenter Valerie Singleton's foot. This turned the floor into a skating rink; the handler was unable to control Lulu and he was dragged across the floor through the wee.
Then, as John Noakes cheerfully said goodbye, he took a step back into a deposit Lulu had left earlier, leaving his parting words as: "Oh dear, I've trodden right in it".
