The satirical series, which in its prime attracted 15 million viewers and ran for 18 seasons between 1984 and 1996, is back later this year on BritBox, the streaming service launched by the BBC and ITV.

Donald Trump, Beyonce, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Vladimir Putin, Bernie Sanders, Elon Musk, RuPaul, Adele and James Corden will also appear.

It’s the first original commission announced by BritBox UK, who have managed to get the show’s original co-creator Roger Law back on board.

The show famously featured Margaret Thatcher in a man’s suit treating her cabinet – “the vegetables” – with contempt, John Major as a grey puppet and the Queen Mother slugging from a gin bottle.

The show is produced by Avalon, whose credits include a rich variety of comedy programmes including The Russell Howard Hour, Taskmaster, Catastrophe and Last Week Tonight With John Oliver.
