Rowan Atkinson fans have said they are counting the minutes to see his new series Man Vs Bee after the “hilarious” trailer dropped.

The Netflix series sees the comic actor playing a bumbling house-sitter doing battle with a bee.

The teaser shows Atkinson as Trevor, who looks rather pleased with himself as he lands a job looking after a plush house.

Things start to go wrong when he swats at a bee, and ends up breaking one of the owner’s pieces of art.

Mayhem ensues, with Trevor whacking himself, falling over and starting a fire in the kitchen in pursuit of the bee – which gets away every time.
