Actor and comedian David Walliams will have a guest role in Series 6 of Doctor Who.

The Little Britain and Come Fly With Me star announced the news earlier today on The Chris Evans Breakfast Show.

Walliams told Evans: “I’ve actually been offered a part in Doctor Who, which I’m very, very excited about.”

“I’ve said yes. I don’t think I can reveal much, but I’ll say I’m an alien. [I film it] in a few weeks.”

Asked if he would like to play the Doctor himself, he replied: “I think any actor wouldn’t turn that down. I won’t be cast now though because they’re getting younger.”

Walliams headlines a raft of recent casting including Lee Ross, Danny Sapani, Michael Begley and Annabel Cleare.
