Most of David Walliams’s novels have been adapted by the BBC (there’s another coming up on New Year’s Day), but Sky have adapted his tale Ratburger.
The story follows Zoe (Talia Barnett), a bullied schoolgirl who adopts a rat as a friend, who she calls Armitage after deciding to hide him in the school toilets. Zoe then learns that Armitage can dance and thus decides to enter him in the school talent show. However, the school’s blind, shifty and dirty burger seller Burt (Walliams) has other plans for the rat – involving his mincer.
Ratburger is on Sky1 at 18.00.
