Ah, egos…

In the latest episode of Robot Wars, we saw two teams go head to head with a major age difference.

And as Angela Scanlon announced the winning team (the kiddies won), the grown, well-in-his-40s, man decided to walk off the show.

Talk about throwing a strop.

Now, we'll admit is was a very mild strop, but nonetheless, at least be the bigger man and congratulate the kids?

And of course, Twitter had a few things to say about it:


Two of our absolute FAVE Irish presenters are coming back for a reboot of Robot Wars.

Dara O Briain and Angela Scanlon have been announced as the new presenters for the BBC2 show.

The bubbly pair will be filming in a new purpose-built arena in Glasgow which will see them get up close and personal with the teams and of course, the robots.

Speaking about the show, it was clear that Dara is excited to be a part of it.

“I am thrilled to be presenting Robot Wars,” Dara said.

“For too long, the schedules have cried out for a show in which dedicated amateurs, toiling day and night, handcraft sophisticated automatons built on the delicate interplay of hand-wired servo motors with custom-built circuit boards and fingertip motion control," he told VIP.

“Just to see them get smashed to pieces by a dustbin carrying a massive hammer. It’s war, and how I love it so."

Angela also seemed thrilled to be joining the reboot of the popular show.

“I’m so excited to be joining such a legendary show that, after all this time, still manages to make people squeal with joy,” she said.

“I cannot wait to see the robots in all their metallic glory playfully destroying each other!”

And we can't wait either.
