Chapman's Roary back for second series

New season of popular pre-school show to air on Five's Milkshake from February.

Top name voice talent Peter Kay and Sir Stirling Moss are again lending their support to Roary the Racing Car, as the Chapman programme readies for the launch of its second series on Five's Milkshake block next month.

The BAFTA-nominated show will begin airing on Monday February 2nd at 7.30am.

A number of new characters will be introduced including Breeze, a free spirited Australian beach buggie; James, a classic 'chauffeur' car with a well spoken English accent; Mama Mia, the mother of Italian track owner, Mr Carburettor; PC Pete, Marsha's brother; and Nick, a young police car.

Roary is consistently ranked as one of Milkshake's and Nick Jr's top performing shows. It was one of the fastest growing pre-school boys brands in the UK last year, with the show having now sold to over 110 countries worldwide.
