Geri Halliwell is teaming up with 'Blackadder' star Brian Blessed to voice two characters in a new Disney Junior TV series titled 'Henry Hugglemonster'
Geri Halliwell, Brian Blessed and Brenda Blethyn are teaming up for a new children's cartoon series.
The trio will voice characters in new Disney Junior show 'Henry Hugglemonster', which follows the adventures of a five-year-old monster called Henry as he makes his way through school and family life.
Geri, whose character Isabella Roarsome is a spirited and popular monster pop star, is thrilled to have landed a role in a family orientated show and is happy her daughter Bluebell, six, has been involved with the programme too.
She gushed: "Being involved in 'Henry Hugglemonster' has been such a joy. The show has a truly positive message, teaching kids to be themselves and reminding them of the importance of family values.
"What's more, it's been so lovely to share this experience with my own daughter, who helped me learn the songs for my role as Isabella!"
Brian will voice Henry's choice friend Estelle's father Eduardo Enormomonster, whose wife is Ernestine Enormomonster (Blethyn).
The series is directed by Emmy Award winning director Norton Virgien ('Rugrats'), with Gillian Higgins producing the script written by Sascha Paladino (Wonder Pets).
'Henry Hugglemonster' will premiere on Disney Junior UK on February 8 2013 at 5.50pm.
