16 August 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

With The Voice not returning to screens until January, Ricky Wilson has put his free time to good use by recording the Zig & Zag theme tune.

Ricky teamed up with his Kaiser Chiefs bandmate Simon Rix to record the song for the puppet duo's upcoming Cbbc return.

Written by original creators Ciarán Morrison and Mick O'Hara - who also voice the titular characters - the new Zig & Zag show will follow the pair as they wreak havoc in the suburbs after crash landing on Earth.

Coronation Street star Debra Stephenson is also involved in the series, which will run for 26 episodes next spring.

Zig and Zag have been around for absolutely ages, having made their debut on Irish TV way back in 1987.

UK viewers will remember them from The Big Breakfast back in the 90s, and more recently on Big Brother's Little Brother in 2010.

Zig & Zag are making a comeback.

The alien puppet duo - who once appeared on The Big Breakfast - will star in their own animated series in spring 2016.

Written by creators Ciarán Morrison and Mick O'Hara, Zig & Zag will follow the pair's life in the suburbs after a crash landing on earth.

Morrison and O'Hara will also voice the characters, with former Coronation Street star Debra Stephenson also part of the voice cast.

Zig & Zag made their TV debut on RTÉ's The Den back in 1987, before arriving in the UK on Channel 4's The Big Breakfast five years later.

Northern Ireland Screen, the Irish Film Board and the Broadcasting Authority of Ireland have provided funding for the project. »
