Ted to come to life on Oscars night

Mark Wahlberg has let slip that Seth MacFarlane's trash-talking teddy bear Ted will make an appearance at the glitzy Oscars ceremony.
MacFarlane directed the 2012 comedy and provided the voice of the foul-mouthed stuffed toy, which comes to life to keep a lonely young boy company, and the movie's human star Wahlberg has now revealed his furry film sidekick is plotting a return on Hollywood's biggest night.
Wahlberg claims Ted will be brought in to entertain the star-studded audience at the 2013 Academy Awards, where the Family Guy creator will make his debut as host.
The actor tells the Chicago Sun-Times that "nobody's safe" from MacFarlane and his jokes.
The prizegiving will take place in Los Angeles on 24 February.
