ITV is to air a Halloween special of Spitting Image.

The terrestrial channel will broadcast an episode of the BritBox show, allowing viewers to see the episode without a subscription to the streaming platform.

The channel confirms: "Following the successful return of the show last autumn, Spitting Image returns to ITV for a one-off Halloween Special shortly after the premiere on BritBox."

Last October, ITV aired an episode of the puppet show in the run-up to the US election. The broadcast secured an audience of 4.4 million, the highest Saturday night ratings at that time in four years.

Spitting Image Series 22 - the second series for BritBox -continues weekly, with a new episode published on the streaming platform each Saturday. The Halloween special will be available from Saturday 30th October, with ITV then showing the episode on a yet to be confirmed day between the 30th October and 5th November.
