"Blues at Ten," 1989.

Alastair Burnet (1928-2012) was a noted British journalist and broadcaster.

Portrayal on the show[]

Sir Alastair Burnet was portrayed on Spitting Image as a cringing, fawning sycophant towards any member of The Royal Family. In one song, "Blues at Ten," he sings about his love for The Queen Mum.

He also had a semi-bulbous nose that constantly inflated and deflated.
