David Walliams and Sheridan Smith in twisted take on Jack and The Beanstalk

David Walliams and Sheridan Smith are teaming  up again for a different  take on Jack and The Beanstalk in the new series of After Ever After, which reveals the not-so-rosy future of the story’s characters once the love has ended.  Joining them in the cast is Inbetweeners Blake Harrison, who will play the dodgy dealer who sold Jack the infamous beans in the first place. 

Sheridan will star as The Woman With No Name, who stakes her reputation on being the best giant slayer in the land, while David plays the Giant. 

The reimagining will see the very concussed giant surviving his great fall from the beanstalk, trying  to recruit his enemy Jack  to get back home away from the angry villagers.

Speaking of the new show, David said: ‘I often wondered what happened to Jack after ever after, so I decided to write a sequel because I can’t stop writing books! ‘This is a star-studded festive treat – a comedy sequel to one of the best loved English fairy tales. I am delighted to be playing the Giant, alongside some of the biggest names in British TV.’

Sheridan added: ‘This is a brilliantly funny piece and I’m so excited to be working with David again. ‘My part is a really fun part and like every baddie, she gets her comeuppance in the end! ‘After the year we’ve had it’s the perfect story for Christmas that the whole family can enjoy together.

Will publish TV broadcast details when they are released.
