After his highly publicised charity swim of the Thames, Little Britain star and comedian David Walliams is set to make the media swarm around him once more - this time with a cameo appearance on Dr. Who.
He may be recovering from his 140 mile swim, but Walliams still found the energy to make a guest appearance as an alien mole called Gibbis, on the popular BBC1 show, broadcast this weekend.
When asked how long his prosthetic make-up took in the morning, Walliams replied 'Two hours. But I don't mind because it's nice to do something memorable isn't it?'
He added that he was 'quite glad to be an alien'.
He also spoke of being a long-term Dr. Who fan. 'I was born in 1971, and Tom Baker was sort of my obsession as a kid and that's why we got him to do the voice over for Little Britain because I was actually obsessed with Tom Baker.
'I met him at a book signing once, I got him to sign a book, his autobiography, and then I got to meet him properly when he did Little Britain for us.'
