Boris Johnson and Donald Trump were never going to fare well in the revival of satirical puppet series Spitting Image, but we have a feeling they definitely won’t want to see it now, following the release of a very NSFW trailer.
The UK prime minister and US president feature heavily in a two-minute promo for the new series, but there’s one particular scene that is bound to have people talking.
It sees a half-naked Boris and Trump enjoying a bucket of chicken together in a steam room, as they discuss their worries about being made to look stupid.
However, their bonding session is interrupted by the arrival of (a miniature) Russian president Vladimir Putin, accompanied by two blonde women.
After proclaiming it is his steam room, he begins attacking the pair by tweaking their nipples, causing their towels to drop.
It’s at this moment that Boris and Trump are exposed in all their *checks notes* glory before a rather well endowed Putin uses his own weapon to hit them where it really hurts.
It was previously claimed the *ahem* sword fight had been vetoed by TV execs, with The Sun reporting scenes had been reshot, but it appears they’ve had second thoughts.
The trailer also offers a look at a number of other celebrities who will be getting the Spitting Image treatment, including Kim Kardashian, Kanye West and Gwyneth Paltrow.
In March, it was announced the show was coming back, airing on BBC and ITV’s subscription streaming service BritBox.
Spitting Image originally ran for 18 series between 1984 and 1996 and was watched by 15 million viewers in its heyday.
Spitting Image begins streaming on Britbox from 3 October, with a second series following next year.
