Tubbies get touch-screen tummies

television

The comeback Teletubbies have been revealed - complete with touch-screens on their stomachs.

The classic show is returning, almost 20 years after Tinky Winky, Dipsy, Laa-Laa and Po (below) made their debut - then with TV screens on their fronts.

Now the creatures still have antennas on their heads, but the TV screens have been replaced by "touch-screen tummies".

The screens will be used to broadcast live action films from a child's perspective.

The original show was seen by around one billion children in more than 100 countries following its launch in 1997.
