The Teletubbies

This time around, the show’s creators are making a number of updates, with Teletubbyland and Home Hill being “visually enriched, to give a more natural feel”.

A number of British stars have signed up to lend their voices to the project, such as Fearne Cotton, who will be lending hers to the voice trumpets that will be seen popping out of the ground.

Jim Broadbent has also signed up, along with ‘Absolutely Fabulous’ star Jane Horrocks.

The show looks set to win over thousands of new, young fans, however, one person who won’t be watching is its original creator Anne Wood.

Anne previously revealed that she’s actually “sad” about the show being remade, stating: "There are such a lot of programmes being remade and I just feel the children's television industry is worth more than that.

"It would be nice if more encouragement was given to new work."
