Dara Ó Briain returns to Robot Wars for series two

Ó Briain will be joined once again by co-host Angela Scanlon at the robot battle arena in Glasgow. Original House Robots Matilda, Sir Killalot, Dead Metal, and Shunt are also poised for a comeback to the fighting ring. 

This year's Robot Wars champions, Team Apollo, will defend their winner's title against an onslaught of new amateur robot engineers over another six week tournament.

Applications are open to all, and are being received by Mentorn now.

The show is coming back to BBC Two having originally run from 1998 to 2001 on the channel, before moving to Channel 5 for a final series in 2003.

The six-part series promises even more innovative fighting machines thanks to a raft of technological advances in the 12 years since it was last on air, as well as a behind the scenes look at the science of the robots featured.

Alan Tyler, BBC Acting Controller of Entertainment Commissioning, promised “a mix of real people, real passion and raw power.”
