The 70-year-old performer, who is 1.2 metres (4 feet 1 inches) tall, starred alongside Gene Wilder in the 1971 classic WILLY WONKA AND THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY, and was keen to repeat history in the Johnny Depp remake.
But he was furious when he discovered the parts of the miniature helpers were axed in favour of computer-generated clones of one actor.
