If there were a sort of Champions League for fighting robots, this would be it. After a ridiculously dramatic final ended the last series, the standout stars - human and metallic - pit themselves against the best of Europe.
That means Apollo (monochrome wedge with a flipper), Sabretooth (yellow spinner), Terrorhurtz (an axe on wheels) and Gabriel 2 (flimsy-looking mace bot) are trading blows with a Rest of the World team led by the most successful Irish robot to compete on the show, Diotoir. It's not clear if the latter will still have its famously flammable polka-dot fur covering, but let's hope so.
Dara O Briain and Angela Scanlon present the first of two special episodes in which four champion robots from past series battle it out against a team of rivals from other countries. The UK team comprises Apollo, Sabretooth, Terrorhurtz and Gabriel 2, while the rest of the world is represented by Diotoir from the Republic of Ireland, TMWHK from the Netherlands, Cobra from Belgium and Rabid M8 from Portugal.
