Animation favourites Wallace & Gromit are to return to television screen for the first time in 12 years.

The claymation duo will star in half-hour adventure Trouble at' Mill, set to screen on BBC1 in late 2008, Aardman Animations has confirmed.

The cheese-loving inventor - voiced by Last of the Summer Wine star Peter Sallis - and his stoic canine companion were last since in The Curse of the Were-Rabbit, which won the best animated feature Oscar in 2006.

However, the pair Haven't been seen on the small screen since 1995's A Close Shave.

Nick Park, creator of the duo, told BBC News: "The story takes Wallace And Gromit in a direction we haven't seen before - both emotionally and technically."

Trouble at' Mill - which begins shooting at the Aardman studios in Bristol in January 2008 - will see Wallace and Gromit running a bakery business before being embroiled in a murder mystery.

Park added that returning to the Beeb was a welcome relief.

"I love making films for the cinema but the production of Chicken Run and Curse of the Were-Rabbit were virtually back to back and each film took five years to complete," he said.

"This one we're making for the BBC. It's going to be a seven- or eight-month shoot. That's faster than we've ever done it before," he confirmed.

After Wallace dallied with Lady Campanula Tottington (voiced by Helena Bonham Carter) in the duo's big screen adventure, Trouble at' Mill will feature a new love interest, from bread enthusiast Piella Bakewell.
