FREDDIE FOX has landed a new TV role, as the Beano comic’s chief mischief-maker Dennis.

Fox, 27, who comes from one of the most celebrated acting dynasties, will voice the schoolboy, formerly known as Dennis The Menace, later this year.

The star will make his debut as the black and red striped top-wearing character, famous for unleashing mayhem, on the new show on CBBC later this year.

Fox said: “As a life-long fan of Dennis, I am honoured to voice him for a new generation.

“I am so excited to be carrying on the red and black striped legacy of a character adored for his mischievousness, energy, live-in-the-moment attitude and full on imagination.

“To borrow Dennis’s catchphrase, ‘This is going to be BLAM!”‘

A newly released behind the scenes clip shows Fox getting into character as “the spiky haired scamp” at a voice recording session.

The 52-part series, Dennis And Gnasher Unleashed, will feature 10-year-old Dennis and his best friend Gnasher battle with the boring conventions of the adult world, as well as his life-long adversary, Walter, who is “forever trying to ruin his fun”.

Producers said the show would use CGI 3D techniques to bring Dennis up to date with a new look for the next generation of fans.
