The show's working title is No Strings Attached, and will feature puppets interacting with celebrity guests.

Baker tweeted: "I'm writing the new Muppet/Puppet show for BBC/Henson. There I've said it."

The BBC Radio 5 Live and BBC London presenter also posted a photo of himself holding up a Kermit the Frog cuddly toy.

A BBC spokesperson confirmed back in March that the channel was developing a new chat show format hosted by a new puppet character.

The show was then looking for "a warm, funny, cheeky, Saturday night host".

Stephen Fry had previously fronted a pilot of a Muppets-style show, but it was never broadcast.

The BBC axed its comedy puppet series Mongrels after two series in January.
