Oscar-winning animator Nick Park has told whatsontv.co.uk that the new Wallace & Gromit show on BBC One feels like a homecoming.

A Matter of Loaf and Death sees our two plasticine heroes set up as bakers. But just as life is going smoothly and they’ve both found love, a cereal killer gets them in his sights…

It screens on BBC One on Christmas Day and Nick said: “I always used to dream, just to get your characters known would be amazing. Now, for it to be the main thing, you know, so out there at Christmas, on BBC One!

“But it feels right on BBC, to come back from feature [films], it feels like a homecoming. Plus Curse of the Were-Rabbit gets its TV premiere this year, so Wallace and Gromit will be… in your face!”
