Series seven of 'The Walking Dead' starts on Fox UK on Monday. And to celebrate, Sky has enlisted the help of comedian John Cleese to recap the events of series one to six.

Cleese does his best to cover over 70 hours of action in just four minutes. Highlights include his description of Rick ("essentially Clint Eastwood but a bit more... sensitive"), and of the town of Woodbury ("one star: Trip Advisor"). He also says of Glenn: "Cracking chap, but can't grow a moustache to save his life."

In a statement, Cleese admitted he's a fan of the show. "I can't get enough of 'The Walking Dead'," he said. "The beautiful scenery, the emotional depths of the characters, and most of all, the gentle sprinkling of horrific barbarism. Hopefully fans will think the video is dead funny, and if not, I might just have to introduce them to Lucille personally."

Series six ended on a cliffhanger, with Negan deciding which of the eleven characters he should slaughter with his barbwire-covered baseball bat Lucille.

Sky also posted on Twitter that Walkers have been spotted in London. So if you see a zombie – sorry, Walker – on the underground, don't panic.

Series seven starts on Monday on Fox UK, which is available on Sky (channel 124) and on Now TV with the Entertainment Pass (which costs £6.99 a month). It's also available on Virgin Media (channel 157) and TalkTalk (channel 422).
