Supervet viewers have a message for the Queen as Professor Noel Fitzpatrick series returns

Get this miracle man knighted already!

He's known for being the ultra-calm, ultra-reassuring and highly-skilled 'Bionic Vet' animal doctor who wears a hairnet excellently.

And now - probably not for exactly all of those reasons - Supervet fans are calling for Professor Noel Fitzpatrick to be handed a knighthood.

Channel's 4 compellingly cute but occasionally heart-rending documentary following the day to day goings on in Noel's practice in Surrey is back.

Fans welcomed the return of the "emotional rollercoaster" series, with the first episode focusing on the amazing recovery of a tiny, months-old Jackhuahua puppy called Ted.

Sadly, Ted's back had been broken by another dog. And although Noel sprang into action and immediately operated on Ted's spine, viewers saw Noel slumped on the floor holding his head with one hand as he explained to the puppy's 10-year-old owner Poppy he wasn't sure whether Ted would be able to walk again.

Even former Doctor Who Colin Baker was moved by Ted's story.

For those watching, Noel's compassion, excellence and manner was more than enough to suggest he should be recognised with a gong.

One viewer, perhaps not familiar with the criteria used to determine Queen's Honours, also put forward Noel being recognised for his excellent embraces.

Thankfully, Ted survived and recovered from his ordeal - and more touching stories will return to Channel 4 next week.

There was one confusing element to last night's show which left hordes of Twitter users puzzled, however: what was Take That's Mark Owen doing hanging out in the practice's reception?

Here are a selection of those tweets that spied Mark:

Weirdly, this isn't the first time Mark has been spotted on the show, as this tweet from November 2016 demonstrates...

Plus, Noel follows Mark on Twitter... although the virtual favour is not returned. What is happening here?

As it turns out, it seems Noel and Mark may be pals. Sort of.

A couple of years ago, Mark took to the stage of the festival Noel was promoting - how does he find the time? - to thank the vet for looking after his beloved pet dog.

Mark even sang an acapella version of 'Shine' to keep fans entertained as stage was reset for another band.

Hopefully Mark's dog is in tip top condition and his appearance on Supervet was just an 'Easter egg' of a cameo.
