Spitting Image has unveiled puppets of Boris Johnson and Dominic Cummings, ahead of the satirical series’ revival. 
Spitting Image Unveils Boris Johnson And Dominic Cummings Puppets And Obviously, Theyre Genius
In March, it was announced the show was coming back, airing on BBC and ITV’s subscription streaming service BritBox. 
At the time, fans got a glimpse of US president Donald Trump, Meghan Markle, Prince Harry, Kanye West and Vladimir Putin as Spitting Image puppets, with Johnson and Cummings now added to the collection.And with Cummings’ lockdown scandal dominating headlines earlier this year, we’re sure there’s plenty of material for the show to work with. 
Programme makers previously made an offer to the prime minister’s chief adviser, with co-creator Roger Law saying: “When Dominic Cummings gets the boot, Spitting Image will give him a Job.
“We’ve always employed weirdos and are sure Dom will be a great asset, he seems to hate politicians as much as we do.”Others celebrities and public figures set to be parodied on the series include RuPaul, Adele, Kim Kardashian, James Corden, Beyoncé and Prince Andrew. Spitting Image originally ran for 18 series between 1984 and 1996 and was watched by 15 million viewers in its heyday.
It cost £300,000 an episode to produce, making it TV’s most expensive light-entertainment show.
Of the decision to revive the show – which will be BritBox’s first original commission – bosses said: “With the world getting smaller and more turbulent, the time couldn’t be more appropriate for an iconic British satirical take on global events.”
The original Spitting Image 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. 
Ronald Reagan was featured in bed with two red call buttons, one marked Nurse, the other Nuke.
Spitting Image will air exclusively on Britbox from the autumn, and a second series will follow next year. MORE NOSTALGIA: Where Are The Cast Of Spooks Now?
