Wallace and Gromit are returning to the small screen for the first time in more than 10 years in a new television adventure to be filmed at the Aardman studios in Bristol.

Trouble At' Mill features the cheese-loving inventor and his faithful sidekick's attempts to run a bakery business.

The half-hour adventure will be filmed at the studios in January and shown on BBC1 late next year.

Fans will find that 62 West Wallaby Street has been converted into a granary with ovens and robotic kneading arms.

The Plasticine pair have started home deliveries and built a windmill on top of the house to grind corn and bake bread.

Business is booming, but the dog, Gromit, is concerned that 12 local bakers have "disappeared" in the past year.

Gromit's master Wallace has been distracted by the new love interest, bread enthusiast and local beauty, the dough-eyed Piella Bakewell.

Trouble at' Mill will be the first half-hour television episode for Wallace and Gromit since The Wrong Trousers (1993) and A Close Shave (1995).

It will be the first outing for Wallace and Gromit since the Curse of the Were-Rabbit, which won an Oscar last year.
