BBC Two has commissioned a second series of Robot Wars in its rebooted format.

The show sees inventors pitting their robots against each other, as well as having to avoid the more powerful "house robots".

The series in its new format was first shown earlier this year and was made in Glasgow.

Mentorn Scotland has been re-commissioned to make the second six part series, again in Glasgow.

Dara O Briain and Angela Scanlon will return as hosts.

Robot Wars was first broadcast by the BBC from 1998 to 2002.

Before the reboot, the series was last broadcast from 2003 to 2004 on Channel 5.
