In the first episode, the Chasers journey to America to pit their wits against Kanzi, a Bonobo ape who is able to communicate with humans by using a series of pictures and symbols on a Lexigram.

They also meet a chimpanzee memory wizard, a 25-year-old gamer orangutan called Katie and that well-known genius of the ocean, the dolphin.

The teaser clip states: “Join the Chasers as you’ve never seen them before.”

It also shows Mark emerging topless from a lake and Anne and Shaun taking on robots and a child genius at Scrabble.

That was so much fun!

Huddled together in a motorhome, Anne is heard saying: “That was so much fun!”
