Foul-mouthed spin doctor Malcolm Tucker has made a re-appearance on Australian TV.

Peter Capaldi channelled his famous character, from The Thick Of It, when he was asked what advice he would give a struggling Australian politician.

Appearing on The Sunday Project, he was asked what his infamous alter-ego would have said.

Capaldi replied: “I think he would have said she was as useless as a marzipan dildo.

“We’re looking at a total omnishambles there. She was all over the place like a mad woman’s shit.

“And I’m only getting started,” he added.

Continuing, he looked into the camera and addressed the politician, saying: “I’m willing to help, if you want to talk to me. I’m not Doctor Who anymore!’”
