With continued critical acclaim, Spitting Image has delivered record new subscribers for BritBox UK, the BBC and ITV created streaming platform.

Reemah Sakaan, Group Director ITV SVOD and Chief Creative & Brand Officer BritBox said: ‘We’ve been excited about the timing of the US election for this series of Spitting Image for months… and it certainly doesn’t seem to be letting us down in terms of material for satire, so we commissioned a bonus episode that we are excited to share with both ITV and BritBox audiences.”

Kevin Lygo, BritBox Originals Creative Chief and ITV’s Director of TV, added: “This is a great chance to celebrate Spitting Image’s noisy return after 18 years and give ITV viewers a taste of the full series, available on BritBox.”
