Marcus Rashford and Gareth Southgate are the newest stars to get Identical image puppets after being heartbroken in the Euro 2020 final and we’re not sure what to do about them.

The satirical comedy will return BritBox for a second series on September 11 after returning to the theater in 2020 for the first time in 24 years.

In images revealed by series co-creator Roger Law during a Royal Television Society panel discussion, England manager Southgate can be seen with his exceptionally large nose, standing amid applause and wearing a dark jacket with a high collar.

On the other hand, Rashford seriously looks at the camera with his hands clenched.

Harry Kane was also treated with spitting images and the England captain pointed to the Three Lions on his chest under his blue training jacket in the first pictures.

The show’s first series featured public figures including Boris Johnson, Dominic Cummings, Greta Thunberg, Donald Trump and the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

Law, who is back in charge of the rebooted show’s creative team, said: ‘In this next Spitting Image series we will be following Boris’s ‘Upgrade Policy’.

‘The puppets are moving to Hartlepool. We went last week but we all get pings on our apps so Dominic Cummings will guide us back and forth until HS2 is up and running.

‘Just as well for Boris, this series will go massively over budget with full BritBox support.’

He added: ‘We will also reduce the number of our political puppets by introducing puppet figures who understand what they do for a living – the England football team alongside Gareth Southgate for the beginner.

‘With its rife with madness, it’s a tough time to be satirical but someone has to do it.’

Spitting Image originally ran for 18 series between 1984 and 1996 and was watched by 15 million viewers during its heyday.

Spitting Image returns September 11 on BritBox.
