The popular TV series Robot Wars returns to the BBC tonight after more than a decade off the air, and it will in fact be two Irish presenters taking the reins with Dara O'Briain and Angela Scanlon on hosting duties. G'wan the lads. The show was in its heyday back in the late nineties/early noughties when former Red Dwarf and Corrie star Craig Charles hosted the show from 1998 until 2004, while Jeremy Clarkson also presented the series briefly in its early days. It sees amateur and professional roboteers make their own robots to fight against each other, as well as avoiding the "House Robots". The first show features students from Reading and a family team from Caithness, as well as a memorable robot from the original series.
