Spitting Image Unveils Michael Gove And Dominic Raab Puppets Ahead Of New Series


Tory MPs Michael Gove and Dominic Raab are the latest politicians to get the Spitting Image treatment, ahead of the new series of the classic satirical show.

It was recently announced that new episodes would debut on the streaming platform BritBox, with the return date now confirmed as 3 October.

The launch announcement came alongside photos of new puppets that will be featured in the series, including first secretary of state Dominic Raab and former education secretary Michael Gove.

Gove’s puppet, as you can see above, is pretty unmistakable, while Raab’s is identifiable because of his karate uniform, the government minister holding a black belt in the martial art.

Spitting Image has also unveiled their new puppets of Prince Charles – who was a staple of the show’s original run in the 1980s – and the Duchess Of Cornwall, Camilla Parker-Bowles.

It wouldn't be Spitting Image without a bit of royal fun, would it?

Puppets of Dominic Cummings and prime minister Boris Johnson were previously unveiled last month, while the first photo from the series back in March revealed that the show would include figures like Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, Donald Trump and Kanye West.

Spitting Image creator Roger Law said: “Everything the team have done on the new Spitting Image shows, the caricatures, puppets and satirical gags have all been done in the public interest, as Boris might say ‘Pro bono publico’. It’s time to come off furlough!  The people have spoken and the puppets are oven ready.

“We’re going to take back control from the likes of Boris, Cummings, Trump, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West. There will be tongue-lashings from our weather girl; Greta Thunberg, you’ll be knocked out by Tyson Fury and dazzled and amazed by Beyoncé and Herr Jürgen Klopp.”

He added: “This time Spitting Image is going global so we will be making world beating trade deals with North Korea and Belarus and if Gavin Williamson and Dominic Cummings finally get the sack, Spitting Image will give them a job. We have always employed strange people and I’m sure Dom, in particular, will be a great asset; he seems to dislike the establishment just as much as we do. And the message for the Keir Starmer’s and Michel Barnier’s is… Let’s get BritBox done.

More than 100 puppets have been made ahead of the new series, including the likenesses of celebs like Adele, Billie Eilish, Chrissy Teigen, RuPaul and Taylor Swift, and political figures, including Priti Patel, Rishi Sunak, Angela Merkel and Joe Biden.
