Kate is set to star in an adaptation of David Walliams’ children’s book, The Boy In The Dress, which is set to screen over the festive period on BBC1.
The story goes that a boy named Dennis shows up to school dressed as ‘Denise’ after getting obsessed with a copy of a high-fashion magazine. Cue Kate, who then appears to him in a dream sequence about supermodels. So, Mossy will be playing herself, natch.
David said of the show: ‘We have put together a dream cast for this the first of my children’s books and for many still my best. It is a funny and poignant story about what is is to be different. I hope it will make everyone who sees it, young and old, stop and think.’
While Kate’s role is a cameo, going off her previous TV appearances in Little Britain (she played Katie Pollard, if you remember), and when she appeared as herself in Absolutely Fabulous back in 2012, it’s safe to say she’ll provide plenty of laughs.
As well as her famous smoulder…
