The character is due to take off into space in a high altitude balloon. His team will be launching him from Ross-on-Wye in Herofordshire.

The 'flight' of Aardman's loveable orange Morph will be livestreamed on his social media channels for all to enjoy.

Weather depending, he ought to be taking off at 11am and will return back to Earth later in the day after taking a turn around the stratosphere.

You can track the Aardman character's journey using the hashtag #MorphInSpace.
