Walliams and Friend

The David Walliams comedy hit gets a full series – and more friends

After the success of his one-off with Joanna Lumley last Christmas, David Walliams is back for a six-part series of his sketch show, this time featuring a different friend each week.

Taking part are Sheridan Smith and Harry Enfield, Meera Syal and Miranda Richardson, and there’s also a Christmas special with Downton’s Hugh Bonneville.

Tonight, though, it’s Bad Education and A League of Their Own’s Jack Whitehall, whose spot-on celebrity impressions steal the show.

With QI, Citizen Khan, Have I Got News for You and this, the BBC’s comedy night can boast something for everyone.
