A Sharknado is about make landfall in the UK with its most dangerous global swarming yet!

The legendary Olivia Newton-John, Olympic great Tom Daley, skateboarder Tony Hawk, rocker Bret Michaels and even Game of Thrones' chief White Walker - aka actor Ross Mullan - are pitching in when Sharknado 5: Global Swarming takes a bite out of the globe.

This time, scenes from the sequel will be filmed in the UK as the world's greatest heroes, Fin Shepard (Ian Ziering) and wife April (Tara Reid), chase those human-chomping storms across the globe.

Here's what they're up against this time: "From London to Rio, Tokyo, Rome, Amsterdam, and beyond, our globetrotting heroes will seek assistance from a highly-skilled squad of royals, scholars, and Olympians, enlisting famous faces from news, entertainment, and sports in their most epic battle yet."

Representing the front line of the UK will be former SNL star Chris Kattan as the Prime Minister and (randomly) Charo as The Queen, while our heavenly Fabio reigns as the Pope.

The bizarre cast also includes Celebrity Big Brother's Tiffany Pollard as black market dealer Vega, actual movie star Dan Fogler of Fantastic Beasts fame as himself, and American Idol's Clay Aiken as tech wiz Llewelyn.

Together, these brave souls will band together to stop those Sharknados from Making America Bait Again - a tagline too good to pass up, surely:

Sharknado 5: Global Swarming premieres on August 6 at 8pm ET on Syfy in the US, and washes up in the UK shortly thereafter.
