David Walliams is a many of many talents and his latest foray in to writing children’s is a great success. With a very successful theatre tour of his Mr Stink books (when the audience were handed a scratch-and-sniff booklet to accompany the action), it is now being adapted for television starring the fabulous Hugh Bonneville who plays Lord Grantham in ITV’s blockbuster series Downton Abbey taking on a very different role and playing the lead..

Mr Stink tells the story of a lonely 12-year-old girl who befriends the homeless man and invites him to live at the end of her family's garden. The book has sold more than 250,000 copies and was short-listed for the Blue Peter best book of the decade award.

David Walliams will also appear in show playing the Prime Minister with Keith Lemon and Harish Patel. Filming for the BBC One comedy will begin next month and is expected to air around Christmas. It is the BBC's first fictional programme to be shot in 3D as part of a two-year experimentation with 3D production and distribution.
