’90s NOSTALGIA HIT new heights last night with the return of the brilliant, classic BBC series Robot Wars.

And it had a couple of Irish presenters fronting it in Dara Ó Briain and Angela Scanlon.

Which made everyone here a little proud

The general consensus seems to be that they showed Top Gear how to properly reboot a show.
