The new project, devised by Preston-born creator Nick Park, will focus on Gromit's concern that Wallace has become overdependent on his inventions.

Ben has been the regular voice of Wallace for some time now, after Peter Sallis' retirement and subsequent death in 2017.

Wallace and Gromit will return to the BBC for a new adventure in 2024

He has been the official voice for Wallace in Wallace & Gromit's Grand Adventures, as well as Wallace & Gromit's Musical Marvels at The BBC Proms.

The 44-year-old also voiced Mr Leaching in Wallace & Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit.

Sean Clarke, managing director of Aardman, said: "Wallace and Gromit are so loved by everyone at Aardman - they're like family to us - and we couldn't be more excited to be creating a brand new film for them to star in.

"When Nick came up with the concept for a 'smart gnome', we all agreed that Wallace would find the idea irresistible - despite warnings from Gromit, who is wise beyond his (dog) years.

"We're sure audiences will find the story irresistible too."

It will be the first film outing for the pair since 2008's Bafta-winning A Matter of Loaf and Death.

The film will premiere on the BBC in the UK and on Netflix in the rest of the world.
