Adele, Zayn Malik and Jeremy Corbyn are among the names who will be getting the puppet treatment in the upcoming second series of Newzoids.

Donald Trump, Danny Dyer and Bear Grylls will also be featured when the satirical animation show returns to ITV for a six-part series later this year.

Featuring the voices of impressionists Jon Culshaw, Debra Stephenson, Lewis MacLeod and Simon Greenall, the first series of the topical sketch programme aired in April 2015 and was likened to 1980s show Spitting Image.

It poked fun at some of the biggest names in politics and pop culture, including Prime Minister David Cameron and Simon Cowell.

Saskia Schuster, commissioning editor, Comedy, ITV, said: "Newzoids' first series proved to be funny, fresh and biting, creating its very own surreal world of politics and celebrity.

"I look forward to meeting the many new Newzoids puppet creations... celebrities and MPs beware, nobody is safe!"
