The 1st of September not only sees the start of a new month but it also brings us brand new Bob The Builder over on Channel 5’s Milkshake. For the first time in its show’s history he has been given his biggest re-vamp with a modern look and feel thanks to CGI. Bob has been entertaining pre-schoolers for the past 16 years with his antics in the seaside harbour town of Fixham, bringing the world of construction to life in an inspiring and meaningful way.
His new look sees him ditching the dungarees for a hi-vis jacket but he is keeping the chunky boots, yellow hard hat and checked shirt. I have to admit I like the idea of the hi-vis jacket, safety does come first after all. The new series will see Bob the Builder continuing its long tradition of telling fun and interesting stories through positivity and teamwork with exciting characters, relatable locations and an aspirational hero.
As well as a change of outer wear, the voices have also been renewed. Lee Ingleby (Harry Potter) takes on the voice of Bob, Joanne Froggatt (Downton Abbey) is the voice of Wendy, Blake Harrison (Inbetweeners) the voice of Scoop and Jacob Scipio (Cbeebies) is the voice of new character Leo.
