I was never that big a fan of ‘Spitting Image’ when I was growing up, but I can see that there’s never been a better time for it to return than in the current climate of utter failure that most of the governments of the world are projecting and from the trailer it looks like the new series isn’t going to disappoint.

The trailer below features a swather of celebrity figures including (take a deep breath): Adele, Baby Yoda, Billie Eilish, Chrissy Teigen, Dominic Cummings, Dwayne Johnson, Ed Sheeran, Elon Musk, Greta Thunberg, Grimes, Idris Elba, Jacinda Ardern, Jeff Bezos, Kim Kardashian, Lewis Hamilton, Mark Zuckerberg, Matt Hancock, Meghan Duchess of Sussex, Oprah Winfrey, Piers Morgan, The Pope, Prince Andrew, Priti Patel, Richard Branson, Rishi Sunak, RuPaul, Taylor Swift, Tiger Woods and Tyson Fury. The pinnacle of the teaser is definitely when Boris Johnson, Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin end up having a naked scrap in a sauna though.
Take a look at it below and see what you think:
Yeah, that looked a bit hit and miss really. The stuff about the politicians was OK but I did think it was really funny when Billie Eilish just kinda mumbled whatever she was seeing.
I would probably tune in if the show wasn’t on Britbox, which I’m pretty sure that 99% of the people in this country aren’t interested in subscribing to as we can see all the British TV programmes we want on the regular channels that we already get. I suppose some people might want to see it so much that they end up subscribing – I guess I’ll ask them if it’s worth getting or not.
For more of the same, check out Wayne Lineker looking for love with his weird girlfriend criteria. That could almost be on ‘Spitting Image’ itself.
