Alexander Armstrong is to voice Danger Mouse in a revamped version of the cartoon.

A new version of the iconic animation was announced in June, and Armstrong is delighted have been given opportunity to play a central role in latest series of the show, which originally aired in the 1980s.

He said: "As a lifelong fan of Danger Mouse I was ecstatic just to know that the show was coming back.

"To be actually involved with the reboot and to be taking Danger Mouse out to a whole new generation is about as close to a dream job as you could wish for."

It's also been confirmed that comedian and actor Kevin Eldon is to play the role of Danger Mouse's assistant Penfold.

He commented: "I'm absolutely delighted to be the new voice of Danger Mouse's trusty sidekick Penfold. It's a role and not a mole, Penfold's not a mole, he's a hamster that I'm going to really enjoy.

"When I am recording the episodes, I'll be making sure that at all times my eyebrows are at least three inches above my head."

The revamped show is set to air in 2015.
