The call took place after teacher Yasmine Joy heard radio presenter Zoe ask listers to send in questions for the popular children’s author.

Yasmine asked her class to come up with questions because they were reading Bad Dad as part of their police academy project.

To everyone’s surprise Zoe’s team contacted Yasmine’s class as ‘superfans’ and asked them to do a Zoom call with David Walliams himself.

Five students were selected to ask questions and greeted the pair while wearing face masks of Zoe and David.

The class also received a signed copy of David’s new book Mega Monster.
