Default Martin Roberts' puppet

Sorry if this has been discussed elsewhere [I could not find reference to it] but in the final episode of Keith Lemon's "Through The Keyhole" he went to the home of Martin Roberts [of "Homes Under The Hammer" fame]. In his office, Martin had a nice collection of TV-related die-casts but also a "Thunderbirds puppet" in a glass display case. From what I could see it looked very genuine but I couldn't identify the character. Any ideas ? And thoughts on its provenance ???

The puppet is a restoration of one of the policemen from Martian Invasion - the head is original, but the body and costume are replicas.

I fancied it was one of the Martian Invasion cops due to the cap on his head but I had never heard of either of them being unearthed - thanks !
