Today's Evil Beet Gossip

Peppa Pig has left the building

Sort of.  What had happened was the girl who voices the delightfully British, mud puddle jumping, friend to everyone pig named Peppa has decided to step down from the role!

If you thought Peppa sounded genuinely young, you were right.  Actress Harley Bird is 18 now, but she’s been the voice of Peppa for 13 years.  Since she was Five!  (yea, I flexed that math out)

Speaking about the news, Harley, who is said to have raked in $1300 an hour for her role, said: “Becoming the voice of Peppa at the age of five was the start of an incredible journey, and I’ll never forget my time on the show.”

She is stepping aside from the job to make way for Amelie Bea, nine, who has branded the new role ‘a dream come true’.
