Jester, the huge 20-pound bunny who loves to strictly watch TV, is so tall that he has his own bedroom


Jester, the giant 20-pound bunny and Strictly fanatic, is so tall that he has his own bedroom upstairs in his owner's house.

60-year-old pet owner Lyn Hobson said her rabbit Jester, who weighs three Chihuahuas, is "like a child" to her.

The 18-month-old rabbit is "spoiled" and already pursuing a career as a model, but his favorite pastime is watching Strictly Come Dancing.

Jester roams Lyn and her husband's home near Scunthorpe, North Linconshire, and enjoys the comfort of no less than three separate beds spread across the property.

Lyn said that her beloved pet follows her all day and is very happy to pretend she does, especially when it means sitting on the sofa and watching Strictly Come Dancing.

The retired chef posts pictures of Jester on his own social media pages and has been inundated with messages from new fans, including a writer who writes about rabbits.

Since then, the Continental Giant, one of the largest breeds of rabbits, has modeled for the cover of an educational title and as the main character in a children's book.

Lyn hopes the appearances will boost Jester's modeling career, and she has created a profile for him on a website where he could be selected for further work.

She said, “Fool is the best pet you can ask for.

& # 39; His character is absolutely lovely, he is very loving, calm and well-behaved.

“I love him so much and spoil him so much that he really is like a child to me.

“Everything I do, he follows me, whether he's watching TV or doing the dishes. He is very sociable. & # 39;

The mother of a Lyn, who lives with her husband and ex-soldier Peter, bought Jester from a breeder in the Northeast on April 1st last year when he was only a few weeks old, which is why his name is Jester.

She then trained him to live indoors, as opposed to a hutch in the garden like most rabbits kept as pets.

Jester is so good that he can move around the house freely and, according to Lyn, even wipes his paws before he enters the house from the garden.

Jester has three beds in the house, including one in his own bedroom upstairs across from Lyn and Peter's room, full of toys and hay.

She said, “People find it a little funny having a Continental Giant for a pet because they probably don't have a lot of people.

“When people see it, they always comment on how big it is.

"Anyone who meets him falls in love, he's just one of those pets that humans are drawn to."

Lyn added, “It was actually part of two books, which is amazing.

“After all of this, he's unexpectedly a celebrity in the rabbit world.

"Hopefully he can do a little more modeling next year, especially at Easter, which could be pretty busy I think."

The Continental Giant, also known as the German Giant, is a very large breed of rabbit that was originally bred for meat.

The longest record is 4 feet 4 inches long while the heaviest weighs a whopping 53 pounds.
