Guests Confirmed for Walliams & Friend

A couple of months ago we revealed that Walliams & Friend, the one-off Christmas sketch-based show from David Walliams, had been commissioned for a full series. At the time we didn’t know a great deal more than that…but now we do!

In case you’re wondering, there is a TVO connection: the show which aired last Christmas featured Morgana Robinson and Mike Wozniak (our newest TVO family member) in the supporting cast – and we’re delighted to report that they’re both back for the full series!

Each week David will be joined by a famous friend who plays a range of different characters; Joanna Lumley was the ‘friend’ in question in the original episode (pictured above). In the forthcoming series David’s friends are: Harry Enfield, Jack Whitehall, Meera Syal, Miranda Richardson, Sheridan Smith and Hugh Bonneville (star of Paddington and W1A).

Walliams & Friend starts on BBC1 later this month; we’ll let you know when the transmission date has been confirmed.
