A new Tom and Jerry film will feature the voice-acting talents of Ben Shephard and Kate Garraway.
The Good Morning Britain co-hosts have revealed they are set to star in an upcoming film based on the cat and mouse characters.
What did Ben Shephard say about the Tom and Jerry film?
On Friday (March 5), he shared a reel of pictures from behind the scenes, as well as a clip of him doing some voice work.
Ben revealed they would both be playing elephant characters in the film’s UK release.
Ben and Kate to play elephants
He wrote: “Surprise! Myself and the wonderful @kategarraway have been lucky enough to voice a pair of pretty glamorous elephants in the UK release of the new Tom & Jerry movie.”
It’s been an absolute dream jumping in the VO booth and getting to be a part of the fun.
Writing further, Ben said the job represented “an absolute dream” for him – and teased that Tom and Jerry could end up as guests on Good Morning Britain.
He continued: “It’s been an absolute dream jumping in the VO booth and getting to be a part of the fun – sadly because of COVID we couldn’t meet Tom and Jerry themselves but fingers crossed we can get them out to GMB in May when the film comes out!”
One fan said in the comments: “This makes me smile from ear to ear, brilliant.”
Another wrote: “This is fabulous Ben! So pleased for you and Kate.”
A third said, with a clapping emoji: “Well done. Fantastic.”
Someone else put: “What a treat!”
