Kerry Mucklowe statue installed outside Swindon FC's stadium

In This Country, Kerry is known for her love of the team and is often seen wearing their shirts.

Swindon FC have installed a statue of Kerry Mucklowe, the fictional star of BBC mockumentary This Country, outside their stadium.

The BBC3 comedy stars cousins Kerry and Kurtan Mucklowe – played by brother and sister duo Daisy May and Charlie Cooper – and is set in a fictional Cotswolds town.

In the show, Kerry is known for her love of Swindon Town and is often seen wearing the football tops of her favourite team.

The football team wrote on Twitter: “We have a visitor. We have finally installed Kerry Mucklowe’s statue.”

Taking the form of The Thinker by Rodin, the statue has been travelling around the country since it was unveiled at the BFI Southbank in January, in conjunction with the launch of the new series.

The statue was placed in the Swindon Town FC forecourt during the home match against Grimsby Town today, with fans able to take pictures and selfies.

After touring several Cotswold towns, the statue will be installed permanently at BBC Bristol.
