David Walliams' Mr Stink to be adapted for TV

22nd February 2012

Comedian David Walliams' bestselling children's book Mr Stink is to be adapted for TV later this year, it has been confirmed.

The book tells the story of a tramp who is befriended by a young girl called Chloe and received critical acclaim upon its publication, leading to the BBC picking up the rights for a small screen version.

Walliams confirmed that he is in the process of writing the screenplay for the comedy-drama, which will be broadcast on BBC One before the end of 2012.

The Little Britain star said he was 'beyond thrilled' that Mr Stink was being adapted, though refused to disclose any details regarding cast members, only confirming that the production will be one-hour long.

Danny Cohen, BBC One controller, described the story as 'a heart-warming, nose-clenching and funny tale which will appeal to viewers of all ages'.

Published in 2009, Mr Stink has sold over 250,000 copies in the UK alone and was recently included in the shortlist for Blue Peter's Book of the Decade accolade, which was launched to coincide with the Blue Peter Book of the Year Award and World Book Day 2012 and asks young readers to vote for their favourite title published in the last ten years.
