Teletubbies is getting a relaunch/reboot after 14 long years… and it has a few interesting names involved.

The show will be returning to CBeebies after their absence and they’ll be taking Jim Broadbent (Get Santa), Jane Horrocks (Little Voice) and UK TV presenter Fearne Cotton along for the ride.

The actors – we were hoping Broadbent was going to play La-La but alas, no – will be playing various roles on the show: ” Cotton and Broadbent will be talking ‘Voice Trumpets’ (who make announcements on the show), while Horrocks will voice the new ‘Tubby Phone’”

Broadbent said: “Teletubbies is truly a British institution and it’s very exciting to be involved in bringing this global hit back to our TV screens. I’m really looking forward to working with the Teletubbies and giving them big hugs.”

 “Teletubbies holds a special place in my heart so I’m honoured to be part of this well-loved TV show,” said Cotton, “as a mum, I am sure the new series will enthral a whole new generation of children across Britain and I will certainly be watching with my kids.”

We’re, em, very excited for the return of these iconic characters. Sigh.

No word on when exactly they’ll be returning.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
