Bob’s creator Curtis Jobling has also chimed in, declaring "my original designs captured children all over the world," and "if it's not broke, don't fix it."
Fans tweeted: ‘looks like he drinks Carling and votes Ukip,' and ‘he doesn’t look old enough to hold any kind of qualification”, whilst another remarked, ‘Can we fix it? NO. No we can’t’ and ‘HE DOESN'T EVEN LOOK LIKE BOB’.
Bob’s fresh new look comes in the wake of the shows’ newly commissioned TV series, set to start next year.
Fans were left feeling discombobulated after news emerged that not only was the much-loved bob in for a makeover, but that the whole show was in a complete overhaul.
Bob the Builder first appeared in 1998 and originally used stop-motion animation; however producers are keen to bring the cartoon up to date with the digital era, announcing that the series will be computer-generated from now on.

I have been laughing at the tweets ALL day.
American Horror Story has pretty much covered it all when it comes to broadcasting things that get people scared. Whether it's ghosts, or witches, or even clowns, the show has touched on some of the spookiest things that go bump in the night. However, creator Ryan Murphy might want to ask some of his cast members what their biggest fears were as a child should he run out of ideas for season five. E! News's Kristin Dos Santos spoke with some of the cast at the American Horror Story: Freak Show premiere, including Michael Chiklis, Wes Bentley and Gabourey Sidibe to find out what really use to make them spooked.
Michael Chiklis might play the strongman on this season of AHS, but he says that when it came to watching the second season of Horror Story, he couldn't do it. "I couldn't watch Asylum, because madness terrifies me. Clowns are an issue as well, especially clowns with knives," the star says, joking about the villain of this season.
Bentley's fear might have been a little more childlike, but how he coped with it could possibly be something straight out of the FX series. "When I was a kid I sort of would create things out of the darkness like we always did in the room, the shadows," he explained, adding "I was more paranoid about what could break into the house, I used to be walk around the house with a fire poker."
However, we think that Gabourey Sidibe's fear might just be our favorite. "This is really, really ridiculous," the star prefaced. "I used to be afraid of certain songs. I know that's so nutty. I used to be afraid of the song 'Killing Me Softly,' the Roberta Flack song I know that that's weird." She also explains that she was scared of "Fur Elise," as well as the Inspector Gadget theme song, explaining "my whole body goes cold I hate it," when listening to them.
What's your biggest fear, ONTD? Time for a creepy post perhaps?
Clive Owen on his ‘The Knick’ character: ‘He does some dreadful things’
By ROBERT RORKE
Full interview here.
In the Season One finale of “The Knick,” airing Friday night on Cinemax, Thackery’s addiction has finally caught up with him.
As we’ve seen in previous episodes, cocaine supplies at hospitals are low due to a war in the Phillippines, causing a desperate Thackery to try to (unsuccessfully) distill the cocaine in Coca-Cola to get his fix.
As matters deteriorated, and his withdrawal symptoms increased, he broke into a pharmacy in the middle of the night — and eventually had to excuse himself from the surgical theater in the middle of an operation.
Owen, 50, was in his glory throwing himself into these scenes. “To be honest with you, it was enjoyable to see how far we could push it rather than shy away from it,” he says. “Thackery does some dreadful things by the end of the season.”
One of his most heinous acts is his active corruption of the young nurse, Lucy Elkins (Eve Hewson), who is in love with him.
After a couple of tumbles in bed, which include the use of cocaine as an aphrodisiac, she’s lying to get into other hospitals to steal drugs for Thackery.
“I don’t think he’s thinking about her,” Owen says. “She’s a complete mess.”
Owen listens to a list of Thackery’s sins — which include visits to a Chinatown opium den — with a throaty, sinister laugh, knowing that the series, which is produced and directed by Steven Soderbergh, has struck a nerve with viewers.
“I wasn’t particularly looking to do a 10-hour television series, but I’d never read a leading character like that,” he says. “And I thought it would be a real challenge to navigate your way through a series like this. It was a very original take and this period in the world of medicine was a crucial time.”
Owen, who lives in London with his wife and two daughters, has read the first five scripts of Season 2, scheduled to go into production next year.
“We’re already working towards Thackery’s recovery,” he says.
And what about Thackery’s future with Nurse Lucy?
“You’ll have to wait,” he says.

Charlamagne shares his thoughts on Rah Digga's comments about Iggy Azalea not being "real Hip-Hop," and questions what the statement actually means. The famed radio host says that Northern Hip-Hop fans only think things from their area is real Hip-Hop, but Charlamagne points out a host of influential Southern artists who are legends in the game.
The conversation then turns to Iggy Azalea's Southern accent, which the "Guy Code" star says he fully understands. Charlamagne feels that the "Fancy" rapper's influence from rappers down South has been molded since her teenage years, and he believes that her accent is a "light" offense compared to what other rappers are doing right now.
ONTD, thoughts? Comments? Questions? Concerns?
“Before the Dawn”, Kate Bush’s recent run of shows at London’s Eventim Apollo, saw the unique singer/songwriter/performer return to the stage after a 35-year break. Her 25-song set featured two expansive song cycles, The Ninth Wave (from Hounds of Love) and A Sky of Honey (from Aerial), with a short opening segment devoted to a selection of post-1982 hits.
Considering the formidable back catalog of someone as musically gifted as Bush, the inevitable dilemma is what to leave out of any top 10. With 10 studio albums and 33 singles to ponder, it’s a particularly tough ask. Despite Bush’s status as a national treasure in the UK and considerable success around the world, her career has never really taken off in the US. Six albums and four singles have charted stateside, topping out at No. 28 for The Red Shoes and No. 30 for “Running Up That Hill”.
Today, her sixth studio album, The Sensual World, turns 25. To celebrate, we put together a proper crash course — her best songs to date — that should bring everyone up to speed on what they might have been missing.
06. “The Sensual World”
The Sensual World (1989)
Here, amidst Macedonian hooks, Bush whispers lyrics that pour with the opulent nectar. Never before had I heard anything that so aptly combined sexuality with poetry. It is “sensuality” in every sense of the word — not lewd or bawdy, but graceful and hungry for all the pleasures of living. It was too enticing to resist.
The song was inspired by Molly Bloom’s monologue from the end of James Joyce’s Ulysses. Instead of writing her own lyrics, Bush was originally going to take the character’s speech verbatim from the end of the book. But she couldn’t secure the rights (until it was re-recorded in 2011) and instead wrote lyrics about Bloom stepping from the pages of the book to be enraptured by the beauty of existence. It’s a classic situation of artist creating genius from limitations.
03. “Hounds of Love”
Hounds of Love (1985)
When I talk about Kate Bush, I worry I sound like a crazy person. I mean, if some rando told you that the strange lady who sings about a book you had to read in high school “lives in the wilderness of my soul,” you’d have every right to be cynical. To my credit, I haven’t ever said that to anyone – but I come close every time. That’s the thing about her … she’s a modest, normal person and is perhaps too polite to openly say that she’s channeled ancient forces that, though long forgotten by man, lay dormant within all of us. That’s what “Hounds of Love” is about.
Hear me out. At face value, “Hounds” is a narrative about being afraid of giving in to love personified as a pack of dogs hunting the singer. But there’s something larger at play, something goosebump-invoking that, much like a spell, is only made clear in the sum of its parts. The synths and strings mesh perfectly with a powerful rhythm, combining the ancient (drums) with the most celestial sounds man has invented. “Hounds” commands dancing. If you’re listening to the song and feeling it, it’s not an option — it’s speaking to you.
02. “Running Up That Hill”
Hounds of Love (1985)
“Running Up That Hill” is an exhausting emotional dive masked in the carefree gleam of the ’80s. With steady drumming and warbling synth, it’s a song whose pain is never diminished because it pulses with determination, even when Bush is face to face with defeat. It doesn’t matter how many times we hear her worried questioning: “Is there so much hate for the ones we love?/ Tell me, we both matter, don’t we?” She’s there encouraging us to keep fighting.
There’s a reason everyone from Placebo to Wye Oak has covered the song. Its wavering status as a double-edged sword makes it both an ideal Saturday morning workout song and the cue for an existentialist sob. It’s as complex as we want it to be. Not only was “Running Up That Hill” Kate Bush’s first 12″ single, but it was one of her riskiest plays with religion. Originally titled “A Deal with God”, the single saw Bush penning the tale of man and woman trying to understand one another and, ultimately, asking to make a deal with God instead of the devil to do so. The twisted nature of the religious role reversals doesn’t come across as dark until the very end of the song when a warped version of her voice sings demonically and is cut. If you’re not careful, you may miss it. Then again, maybe that’s the point. -Nina Corcoran
01. “Wuthering Heights”
The Kick Inside (1978)
Kate Bush was just 19 when her Emily Brontë-inspired debut single displaced Abba’s “Take a Chance on Me” as the UK’s No. 1 in February 1978. According to the singer, the initial spark for the song came from catching the end of a film adaptation of Brontë’s classic on TV some years earlier. The idea clearly stuck with Bush, who oddly was known as Cathy as a child, but she didn’t translate it into a song for some time. When she came to record her debut album, The Kick Inside, Bush had around 50 songs to choose from, but “Wuthering Heights” was not among them. She wrote it in “a night and a half” prior to recording the album with a full moon to guide her.
“Wuthering Heights” broke both ground and mold; Bush became the first woman in top the UK charts with a self-penned song, while musically, she broke the conventions of pop music. The single’s success puts a lie to the notion that the lowest common denominator rules for the general listening public.

That final scene.
Joshua Jackson appears to have settled down, but that doesn't mean he's ready to get married. The Affair actor explains in Glamour's upcoming November issue why he and his longtime love, actress Diane Kruger, haven't walked down the aisle yet.
"I can tell you why we're not married: We're not religious. I don't feel any more or less committed to Diane for not having stood in front of a priest and had a giant party," Jackson, 36, tells the mag. "We're both children of divorce, so it's hard for me to take marriage at face value as the thing that shows you've grown up and are committed to another person. But it may change at some point. We may get married."
Indeed, that seems to be the case with Jackson, especially in regards to his fashion sense. "[If] you want to be respected as a grown-up, you have to dress like one," Jackson told Glamour of what Kruger has taught him about fashion. "I used to have a collection of Adidas sneakers, but one day all the obnoxiously colored ones disappeared. She still claims I must have lost them 'somewhere.'"
Marriage may not be on the table right now, but parenthood is. In 2012, Jackson told Us he'd love to be a father one day. "I mean, I'm at that age," he said.
He's also old enough where his friends' kids now watch reruns of his Pacey Witter days. "If I'm somewhere cold, Mighty Ducks. Anywhere else, Dawson's," he told Glamour of what role he gets recognized for most. "I'm now at an age where my friends’ kids like Dawson's…but they like it ironically."
what are your views on marriage ONTD? is it overrated?
Harry Potter author JK Rowling is to build her own "Hagrid Hut" in the grounds of her Scottish estate.
The writer plans to install the stone-built summerhouse, bearing a striking resemblance to the home of one of her best-loved characters, the game-keeper Hagrid, on the edge of the Killiechassie Estate, near Aberfeldy in Perthshire.
Like the fictional home of Hagrid - the ground-keeper of Hogwarts, played in the Harry Potter films by Robbie Coltrane - the proposed hut will be built on the edge of a forest of the 162-acre estate.
Architectural plan of the hut
It will be a circular structure, open to the front, with a stone bench and slate roof.
A council report states that the condition of the application's approval is that no trees must be damaged or cut down during the construction.
Killiechassie House, on the banks of the River Tay is just a few miles from Castle Menzies, which has been likened to Hogwarts, the fictional school attended by Harry Potter.
The 19th century estate has its own small loch, said to contain a murderous water sprite.
An alleged stalker is accused of bombarding Lindsay Lohan with more than 1,000 messages and punching a bouncer who barred him from seeing her rehearse for her West End comeback.
Daniel Vorderwulbecke will face trial over the altercation at London's Playhouse Theatre, where the Hollywood star made her stage debut last month in David Mamet's satire Speed-The-Plow.
It is claimed the 37-year-old, who goes by names including King Lionheart and DJ Dan Cortez, sent Miss Lohan thousands of text messages.
He also claims to speak to the actress personally and through social media every day, a court heard.
Today he was bailed to the specialist Gordon Hospital for mental health patients in Pimlico, central London, where specialists will prepare a psychiatric report ahead of his trial.

Sir Ridley Scott is producing an Ebola-themed limited run drama series for Fox TV Studios.
The filmmaker is working with producer Lynda Obst and writer Jeff Vintar on adapting Richard Preston's 1994 non-fiction book The Hot Zone, which they originally optioned 20 years ago.
What began as a potential feature film for Scott to direct morphed into a television drama series over the last year. Scott is in line to direct at least one episode of The Hot Zone if it is ordered to a full series.
His producing partner Obst told The Hollywood Reporter: "A limited series is a great way to do this because you don't have to limit it to a three-act structure like you do with a film."
This adaptation of The Hot Zone could also include new elements from an article currently being written by Preston on the latest Ebola outbreak.
Scott currently serves as an executive producer on The Good Wife, and has also produced Numb3rs and World Without End in the past.
An outbreak in West Africa has left more than 4,000 people dead. The recent death of Thomas Eric Duncan from the disease in Dallas became the first casualty on US soil. Two nurses who treated Duncan have since been diagnosed with Ebola.
A vent collapsed at a Pangyo Techno Valley culture festival during a 4Minute performance and around 25 people fell 30 feet down the ventilation shaft, according to The Fact. Police and rescue workers are on scene and working to rescue those still stuck, but two people have been confirmed dead with 13 people having been already rescued (but were injured), according to JoongAng Ilbo.
There’s no exact word on the amount of injured besides those that are already out, but after falling that distance it’s pretty safe to say all of them will have some type of ailment. Police believe that the vent collapsed from the weight of too many fans, though ushers had tried to keep them from climbing it to get a better view. It’s reported that about 700 fans were in attendance.

Jessie J has revealed that she was banned from her school choir as she was deemed "too good".
The singer told the London Evening Standard that her "evil" teacher wouldn't let her get involved as he thought she was "too loud".
She was already starring in a West End production of Whistle Down The Wind when she was told she couldn't be a part of the Mayfield Secondary School choir.
"I won't name him because I don't want him to get abused. He was awful," she said. "He didn't let me in the school choir because he said I was too good and that the other parents would complain.
"I was 11. He was like, 'You're too loud'. And to rub my face in it even more, they sang Whistle Down The Wind - which was the show I was in at the time in the West End - for the school concert. So who's laughing now?"
