Former children's TV host denies Banksy rumours


A former children's TV host is trying to squash rumours that he is a popular street artist and political activist.

Neil Buchanan, known as the host of Art Attack in the 90's, has posted an official statement on his website simply stating he is not the artist known as Banksy.

In the statement he says he's been inundated with inquires over the weekend, but says there is 'no truth in the rumour whatsoever.'

He adds he spent lockdown with vulnerable family members and is preparing to launch a new art collection next year.
