Veteran Thunderbirds star David Graham is set to reprise his role as the voice of Lady Penelope's devoted chauffeur in the upcoming Tv remake.

The character actor, famous for uttering the words "Yes M'Lady" as driver Parker in the classic 1960s series, will feature alongside Rosamund Pike as Lady Penelope.

He says, "I am triple chuffed to be on board the new series of Thunderbirds Are Go! and reprising my role of dear old Parker with such a distinguished cast. My driving skills are in good nick and I am delighted to be behind the wheel again with M'Lady."

Graham is the only original Thunderbirds actor to return to the modern revamp of the show, titled Thunderbirds Are Go!, which will air in the U.K. in 2015.
