Jeremy Clarkson is making his first TV return since his sacking from BBC 2 programme Top Gear, but it’s not quite what you’d expect.
His character will appear in new ITV comedy ‘Newzoids’, which is a brand new spitting-image puppet show. Boris Johnson, Andy Murray and Beyonce will also make an appearance in the 6-part-series.
The plastic puppets’ lips and eyes will all be CGI-animated and voiced by impressionist Jon Culshaw. Let’s just hope he does a cracking impression of Clarkson.
ITV’s director of entertainment and comedy stated:
ITV has a rich history of playing popular satirical comedy in peak time on its main channel, and it seemed a good time to revive it this year.
We are pleased to be adding to our growing comedy portfolio with this funny and biting look at the world of politics and celebrity.
It’ll be worth a watch, just to see how much they take the piss.
