Hi-5 (UK) is a British children's television program, that aired in 2008 on Cartoonito and CITV. It was based on the original Australian TV show of the same name and features an all-British cast, much like how the American version features an all American cast.

In Mid 2015, it was rumored that the series would return for a new season with a new cast taking over, set to start in late 2015, but this never came to be.
