Dallas celebrates reboot in London

London  - Cowboys, stetsons, bucking broncos and JR masks - it could only be the arrival of Dallas in London.

Stars of the rebooted soap Larry Hagman, Linda Gray and Patrick Duffy were at a Southfork Ranch outpost by the River Thames on 21 August to celebrate the launch of the new series with a big Texan party.

The younger generation of actors, Jesse Metcalfe, Josh Henderson, Jordana Brewster and Julie Gonzalo, also attended the party.

After success in the US, the first season of the new Dallas series will be shown in the UK from 5 September on Channel 5.

The series is set to start in South Africa on Tuesday 28 August at 21:00 on M-Net and M-Net HD. 

Duffy, who plays Bobby Ewing, said it was British audiences who helped the show become a hit the first time around, when they adopted the night-time soap and made it popular around the world.

Duffy said that he is hoping they'll do the same with the re-launched version.
