Pudsey Bear hand signals

The request was refused by British Broadcasting Corporation.

Dear British Broadcasting Corporation,

The person wearing Pudsey Bear's costume for Children in Need allegedly has a series of hand signals to communicate with their non-costumed handler.

Could you please confirm if this is the case, and if possible what the agreed hand signals are?

Yours faithfully,
Jonty Wareing
