Noel Fielding has spent recent years offering up some conservatively colourful outfits as the co-host of The Great British Bake-Off, but he'll soon return to his strange comedy roots. After all, he's currently at work on a new Netflix series.

In a recent appearance on BBC 6 Music [via Chortle], Fielding explained that he's working on the early development stages of his new show, which is a musical comedy with some signature Noel weirdness.

"Basically a guy gets hold of a magic record player and when you put the record player on a portal appears and you can go inside your favourite albums," Fielding explained.

That said, don't expect it to be complete too soon. "I haven't written it yet," he admitted. "I pitched it and Netflix liked it and we're making it, but I haven't started writing it yet. So that's my next thing."

Fielding added that the show could take a number of different forms. "It's a good concept but how I write it, I could come at it from many different angles and I'm trying to work out the best way," he said.

The six-part series is being co-written between Fielding and Matt Haydock, who previously created the cult character Gus the Fox.
