Supernanny is returning for a new series after an eight-year break

The US version of her show ended in 2011

Supernanny Jo Frost is set to return to our screens with a new season of her popular parenting show.

The childcare expert, 48, will be back with all-new episodes of Supernanny in the new year after an eight-year break.

A trailer for the new series, released on Thursday (07.11.19), parodied the Liam Neeson action flick Taken as it teased Jo's epic comeback.

At the beginning of the clip, a convoy of black cars travels down a suburban road and Jo, riding in one of the vehicles, is heard asking someone on the phone: "What's the situation?"

"An individual has taken control of the house, ma'am," is the reply.

She asks how bad it is and her contact informs her "it's really bad" as "the subject has or has taken matters into their own hands".

Jo demands to be put in touch with the perpetrator and is heard telling them, mirroring Taken's famous 'skills' monologue: "I don't know who you are, but let me tell you what I'm doing here.

"I'm here because I have a very specific set of skills, skills that I've perfected throughout my career, dealing with people just like you.

I have a very specific set of skills.

"If you listen to me now, this whole situation may turn out differently for you, but if you don't, oh if you don't, I will fix that."

As she spoke, the camera panned around a house littered with smashed items and debris before settling on a living room scene, where a child in a chair leans forward and tells Jo: "Good luck!"

The new series of Supernanny will premiere on the channel Lifeline on January 1.

Jo rose to fame in the mid-00s after helming Channel 4's Supernanny.

The British version of the programme ran for five series, between 2004 and 2008, and was so popular it spawned a host of new shows - including an American version.

The US iteration comprised seven seasons, running from 2005 to 2011.

Jo has been busy with other shows and documentaries in the years since, including Jo Frost on Britain's Killer Kids in 2017, and continues to deliver parenting advice on social media.
