Morph making a comeback

Unless you were one of those weird kids without a TV, Morph was probably a key character of your youth.

The nonsensical plasticine man first appeared alongside art legend Tony Hart in the 70s and has managed an infrequent career ever since. But the terracotta-skinned little guy is making a much-anticipated comeback to CBBC.

Along with his slightly lesser known mate Chas, the Aardman creations will appear alongside Ricky Martin (sadly, not that one) in a show called Ricky's Radical Reinventions.

In the show, animator Martin will use everyday items to make various things while the claymation duo cause havoc in his van.

To celebrate his return, here's Morph eating some ice cream:
