David Walliams LOVES One Direction releases Ratburger as Gangsta Granny receives Roald Dahl award nomination
David Walliams has been nominated for the Roald Dahl Award. The Britain’s Got Talent judge has scored a hat trick -having been nominated for two of his previous books as well.
Being a fan of the late author David is obviously delighted, but the fun doesn’t end here.
Yesterday the five time author released his latest baby “Ratburger” which immediately flew of the shelf.
A new site to coincide with the book has also been launched. Called “World of Walliams” it looks like a wonderful place: worldofwalliams.com/ David joked: “It just might be the greatest book about rodent based snacks ever written.”
David revealed this week that his Mr Stink programme has finally been cast: “Mr Stink has been cast for BBC1′s Xmas adaptation. He’s a hugely talented and wildly popular actor. I can’t wait until I can tell you…!”
The best news might just be that David has met One Direction this weekend, at James Corden’s wedding (where he posed with his comedy chums). A happy David said:
“I met Harry, Nial and Louis from One Direction on Saturday night. I still can’t believe it! They couldn’t have been lovelier.”
Tweeting Niall, he wrote:
“Hi Nial, it was so great to meet you, Harry and one of the other ones at the weekend.”
David has given some interesting lectures over the last two days, but rumour has reached us that he has also been spotted recording a TV show in a wig and full make up. We are wondering what that could be for … Watch this space (or the new page we’ll create once we hear the news).
