The Great British Fake Off? See David Walliams and Joanna Lumley in Christmas special

David Walliams and Joanna Lumley are getting in full festive, and spoof, mode.

New pictures of the duo show them dressed up as various characters for David’s BBC One Christmas Eve show, titled Walliams and Friends.

The pair are set to spoof various topics, including dressing up as the Great British Bake Off’s Mary Berry and Paul Hollywood.

David will also dress up as Oscar Wilde with Joanna at his side in full costume.

The show, which some reports say is going to be a little risque, is no doubt set to divide opinion.

Another of the spoofs planned is called Tanya’s Tans, and judging by the perma-tanned faces, it’s going to be a treat.
