You know you've made it when... you get a puppet in a TV satire show.

If that's the case, then Katie Hopkins has officially arrived, with the controversial opinionist joining the lineup of stars appearing in ITV's brand new satire show 'Newzoids'.

Katie Hopkins is one of the 'star lineup' on new topical puppet show 'Newzoids'

In the tradition of the much-missed 'Spitting Image', the show will comprise a topical puppet animation sketch show poking fun at pop stars - we're crossing everything for Kanye! - politicians, sports stars and TV favourites, promising to look at them in a way we've not seen before.

Names on the list so far include Ant and Dec, Wayne Rooney, Beyonce, Harry Styles, Prince Harry, David Cameron, Ed Miliband, Nick Clegg, Barack Obama, Russell Brand and Simon Cowell.

The six-part series promises a combination of high-energy puppetering, topical gags and pinpoint accurate impressions, and fans of 'Spitting Image' must be hoping for the same kind of merciless ribbing of the week's events. Impressionists include the talents Jon Culshaw and Debra Stephenson.

The topical animation puppet sketch show will launch on Wednesday 15 April at 9pm on ITV.
