A SCHOOL librarian had her question answered by a famous celebrity comedian during a live broadcast.

The reading group at Worle Community School in Redwing Drive took part in a broadcast organised by the Scottish Book Trust via the BBC’s Authors site.

Funnyman David Walliams talked about his hilarious new book Gangsta Granny.

Librarian Kay Sellers and English teacher Nicky Whysall arranged for students to take part in the broadcast.

Kay had previously submitted a question to David Walliams and to the students’ delight he answered it on the live broadcast.

She asked him ‘When we have visiting authors giving talks at our school we provide a school dinner. What’s your favourite school dinner and why?’

David replied that he liked fish and chips on a Friday and Spam fritters

The live event proved to be an enormous hit with the students.

They will be taking part again this week when they will be watching Phillippa Gregory talk about her new book Changeling.
