PROFESSOR Brian Cox is an extra-terrestrial, it has emerged.
The scientist and pretend human fulfilled everyone’s suspicions by denying the existence of ETs despite extensive anecdotal evidence involving UFOs and crop circles.
Ufologist Mary Fisher said: “We use something called ‘Bowie’s Law’ to work out if a person is an alien.
“If someone is handsome in a non-masculine way, knows way too much about science and is cagey about the existence of aliens, they are essentially David Bowie in The Man Who Fell to Earth.
“Cox fulfils these criteria in spades and is therefore from space.”
Professor Cox subsequently confirmed that he hails from somewhere near Ursa Minor and that beneath the latex ‘human’ suit he looks like a small camel.
He said: “I’m really here to find out if your planet has any good natural resources that my race could plunder before enslaving you. Turns out it does, and the lightspeed battle-cruisers are now on their way.
“Sorry about that.”
