Remember Robot Wars? Well it’s back, and the best part is that two Irish stars will be taking over the hosting duties for the rebooted show.
Dara O’Briain and Angela Scanlon will be teaming up to present the BBC Two show, and will be shooting from a new purpose-built fighting arena in Glasgow.
Funnyman Dara has revealed his excitement to be taking part in the game show, where competitors build and compete their robots, saying he is “thrilled”.
“For too long, the schedules have cried out for a show in which dedicated amateurs, toiling day and night, handcraft sophisticated automatons built on the delicate interplay of hand-wired servo motors with custom-built circuit boards and fingertip motion control,” he commented.
“Just to see them get smashed to pieces by a dustbin carrying a massive hammer. It’s war, and how I love it so.”
Meanwhile, The Voice UK star Angela added: “I’m so excited to be joining such a legendary show that, after all this time, still manages to make people squeal with joy.”
“I cannot wait to see the robots in all their metallic glory playfully destroying each other!”
