Pinky and Perky are returning to the spotlight with the help of The Communication Group.

Just Group plc acquired the rights to the singing pigs at the beginning of the year and retained agency TCG is paving the way for a 'major comeback', to kick off with a Christmas album.

Pinky and Perky first became famous in the 1950s, but the last decade has been much quieter for the pair.

A TV series is also in negotiation, and the requisite merchandise will soon appear, including mobile phone covers.

The porky duo has already made an appearance on Channel 4's Big Breakfast, when viewers voted for their version of Wham!'s Last Christmas to be released as their new single.

It seems working with puppet celebrities can be less taxing than handling human ones. TCG head of consumer PR Julie McGarvey said of Pinky and Perky: 'They've been delightful, and were very well behaved on the Big Breakfast.'
