Often, when sitting at home, ill from work, I end up flicking through some of those remote day-time TV channels no-one ever touches unless bored, at home, and ill.

More often than not, the likes of Crystal Maze and Takeshi’s Castle are playing, offering an hour of entertainment (before the boredom sets in once more).

Ninja Warrior has become another one of those staples; so much so ITV picked up a UK edition in 2015. However, it was on the US version of the show that something miraculous happened.

A Tyrannosaurus Rex - the 65 million-year-old carnivore - took to the course, wowing viewers by doing remarkably well, especially considering its little arms.

“It wasn’t a meteor that ended the dinosaurs, it was the spin cycle,” says one of the commentators.

“Remember, T-Rex weighs about five tonnes, so he’s one of our heavier competitors,” adds the other.

Of course, this wasn’t an actual T-Rex (no way), but one unlikely hero dressed in an inflatable costume. Still, they did do very well.
