A number of seasonal and charity specials followed, up to 2009.
A spin-off series produced in the United States by HBO, Little Britain USA, aired in 2008.
Walliams performed in the Big Finish Productions Doctor Who audio play Phantasmagoria, written by Mark Gatiss.
From 2003 to 2005, Walliams co-wrote and co-starred in three series of the BBC sketch show Little Britain with Matt Lucas.
David Seaman, the former Arsenal and England goalkeeper, may have earned himself the nickname “Safe Hands” but the cars he has owned — a bright yellow Ford Capri, a TVR and an Aston Martin DB7 (which he once flipped onto its roof) — point to a daring streak. Having notched up 75 caps for England in a career that lasted almost 25 years, Seaman, 54, returned to the limelight when he took Paul Gascoigne’s place on BBC1’s Strictly Ice Dancing in 2004.
He won the contest despite having missed out on most of the training, and went on to take part in Dancing on Ice on ITV, where he met his third wife, Frankie, a professional ice dancer.
In 2015, he starred as Tommy Beresford in the BBC series: Partners in Crime based on the Tommy and Tuppence novels by Agatha Christie. To date he has sold more than 12.5 million copies and his books have been translated into 46 languages. He is the son of Peter Williams, a London Transport engineer, and Kathleen Williams, a lab technician, and grew up in Banstead, Surrey.
Walliams was educated at Collingwood Boys' School in Wallington, and Reigate Grammar School in Surrey, where he was a contemporary of Robert Shearman.
The duo appeared together in a music video for the Pet Shop Boys single "I'm with Stupid", in which the two are apparently auditioning their version of the song's video for Neil Tennant and Chris Lowe, who are tied up and appear to be hostages.At their first meeting, Lucas did an impression of Jimmy Savile and Walliams an impression of Frankie Howerd. In the late 1990s, playing minor roles in sketches such as The Club, Walliams and Lucas played grotesque caricatures of various rock musicians in the series Rock Profile and in the spoof documentary series Sir Bernard's Stately Homes.They were also stars of the Paramount Comedy Channel show Mash and Peas, and it was in this guise that they appeared in the Fat Les video (see above).In June 2015, it was announced that Big School would not be returning for a third series. The show returned for a full series in November 2016, and a second series has been announced.Walliams hosted the final of New York comedy show Thrills and Spills in late-December 2016. In December 2016, Walliams presented the Royal Variety Performance and a Christmas special episode of Blankety Blank, both shows for ITV.Since 2012 Walliams has been a judge on the ITV talent show Britain's Got Talent with Amanda Holden, Alesha Dixon and Simon Cowell.
