DHX Media has unveiled a string of well-known British stars that are voicing characters in the new Teletubbies series.

Absolutely Fabulous star Jane Horrocks will voice the Tubby Phone, a new addition to the show, while Jim Broadbent and Fern Cotton will take on the role of the Voice Trumpets.

Up-and-coming actor and comedian Daniel Rigby will narrate the show while Misfits star Antonia Thomas will narrate the opening and closing lines.

“Teletubbies holds a special place in my heart so I’m honoured to be part of this well-loved TV show," said Cotton.

"As a mum, I am sure the new series will enthrall a whole new generation of children across Britain and I will certainly be watching with my kids."

Horrocks added: “I am very excited to be playing the Tubby Phone in the new series which has a whole new feel to it. I think it’s hilarious, and will appeal to adults as much as it does children.”

Broadbent continued: “Teletubbies is truly a British institution and it’s very exciting to be involved in bringing this global hit back to our TV screens.

"I’m really looking forward to working with the Teletubbies and giving them big hugs."
