‘Thunderbirds are gay’? Fans mock ‘twinky’ stars of new remake
People have complained about the “twinky” line-up for an animated Thunderbirds remake.
ITV this week released the first preview pictures of the upcoming series, which will re-launch Thunderbirds for a new market.
However, internet users have had a mixed reaction to the image of the new-look Tracy brothers standing in front of Tracy Island, in tight-fitting costumes with visible bulges.

ITV said: “The action packed reboot has been produced using a unique mix of CGI animation and live-action model sets to deliver a new level of action-adventure animation whilst also paying tribute to the classic 1960’s phenomenon.
“The re-invention of Gerry and Sylvia Anderson’s iconic series will star Rosamund Pike (Gone Girl, Pride and Prejudice) as Lady Penelope and original cast member David Graham who reprises his role as Parker.
“Other star voices will include Kayvan Novak (Fonejacker, Facejacker) as inventor Brains and Thomas Brodie-Sangster (Game of Thrones, Love Actually) voicing John Tracy.”
