Cbeebies has commissioned a second series of pre-school hit, Baby Jake.

The series - created by award winning kids' indie, Darrall Macqueen - mixes live action and 2D photographic animation to bring to life the adventures of a baby called Jake.

The new series will introduce a number of new ways for Jake to get around on his imaginary escapades: Diggery the Digger, Scamp the Scooter and even a flying polar bear.

"It's great to be bringing back Baby Jake and his friends for a host of new adventures," said Maddy Darrall, joint MD at Darrall Macqueen. "The first series was a huge hit, charming parents and children alike and this time round we're taking him on even more beautiful and playful imaginary journeys that we know they'll love."
