Destructive robots and their human owners can now apply to be a part of the next season of Robot Wars. The BBC has announced that a second six-episode run of the revamped show is coming, with Dara O'Briain and Angela Scanlon once again set to host.

To get involved, you need to fire off an email to -- presumably with a robot CV type thing, your life story and a written assurance that you won’t break down if your expensive creation is torn apart to the sound of raucous cheers before your very eyes.

The next season of Robot Wars is likely to air next summer, with the house robots and wonderfully entertaining reigning boyband champions Team Apollo set to make their return to the Glasgow arena. I was fortunate enough to take a behind-the-scenes look at the action early this year, and it was fantastic. [BBC]
