The Oscar-winning creator of Wallace and Gromit has warned that the duo may have had their last adventure.
Andrew May has spent more than £150,000 on Wallace & Gromit memorabilia - including £50,000 on a sculpture from the Gromit Unleashed trail.
Dozens of giant sculptures of one of the country's best-loved TV characters will be unleashed onto the streets of Bristol next summer.
Labour leader Ed Miliband has admitted to a likeness with "Wallace" from the popular "Wallace and Gromit" films, made by Bristol's Aardman Animations.
But he says politics rather than his image is what is important to him.
In a wide-ranging speech to the Royal Institute of British Architects he said:
– Ed Miliband MP, Labour leader
I am not from central casting. You can find people who are more square-jawed, more chiselled, look less like Wallace.
A collector who has spent more than £150,000 on Wallace & Gromit memorabilia has allowed our cameras to be the first to film in his house.
Andrew May's collection includes a large £50,000 sculpture - which takes pride of place in his living room.
Ken Goodwin reports:
Two new Gromit statues will be back in Bristol in time for Christmas.
They will be at the Gromit Unleashed Shop in the Mall at Cribbs Causeway, and will be given out as raffle prizes.
The main Gromit statues were auctioned for more than two million pounds.
Bus drivers in Bristol will be dressing up as Wallace from Aardman's Wallace and Gromit to raise money for Bristol Children's Hospital today. It's part of the Grand Appeal, which also saw statues of the character's sidekick Gromit placed aound the city.
Wallace and Gromit creator Nick Park will open a Gromit shop and museum at The Mall at Cribbs Causeway later.
It coincides with the start of the Gromit Unleashed art trail, which has seen 80 models of the animated dog placed around Bristol.
It's just over a month until 80 painted Gromit statues arrive in Bristol. The ten week public art exhibition is raising money for the Bristol Children's Hospital.
And local tourism bosses are hoping it will raise visitor numbers too. They've made a short film to whet the appetites of potential Gromit spotters.
Kelly Ballard from Destination Bristol hopes the films will be a hit on the Internet:
A series of films featuring the Bristol-made Aardman character Gromit to promote Bristol as a Summer destination for short breaks were released online on Thursday.
This film stars one of the 80 Gromit sculptures that make up a new art trail in the city:
