Actor Lee Ingleby, who is starring in BBC1 drama Our Zoo, takes over from Neil Morrissey, who played the handyman from his launch a decade and a half ago.

Ingleby - also known for his role as Stan Shunpike in Harry Potter And The Prisoner Of Azkaban - said: "I was very excited to be given the opportunity to be the voice of such a well-loved character.

"My little nephew is such a huge fan of Bob that I had to jump at the chance. Capturing a child's imagination is so important, and I just wish I was half as good at DIY as Bob is."
