Bob the Builder gets a makeover!

Section: Toys & Education

Everyone’s favourite builder has had a makeover, with a new series featuring a new look and new celebrity voice cast. 

He’s your little one’s favourite construction worker, and certainly more reliable than any builders in Yellow Pages, and now Bob the Builder is returning in a new CGI-animated series on Channel 5’s Milkshake from September 1, 2015, at 7.20am.

Bob has been entertaining children for 16 years, and is now to be voiced by Lee Ingleby (you might recognise him from Harry Potter), with Joanne Froggatt from Downton Abbey voicing Wendy, and Blake Harrison from The Inbetweeners as Scoop. 

All Bob’s friends return, including Scoop, Muck and Lofty, plus business partner Wendy, while Bob also has a new apprentice, called Leo, among other new characters your little ones will love. 

Watch the trailer (above) for a first glimpse of the new-look Bob.
