David attended Collingwood Boy's School in Wallington and then Reigate Grammar School. David is a comedian and children's author, you may be familiar with him as one of the judges of the TV show Britains Got Talent. In 2006 David swam across the English Channel raising over 1 million British Pounds for charity and in 2011 he swam the length of the River Thames raising more than 2 million British Pounds for charity.

David's first book The Boy in the Dress was published in 2008 followed by Mr Stink in 2009. Since then he has published numerous other titles including Gangsta Granny, Ratburger, Demon Dentist, Awful Auntie and more. In addition to the fiction titles above more recently he has also published picture books such as The Slightly Annoying Elephant and There's a Snake in My School.

Many people say that David Walliams books remind them of books by Roald Dahl.

Several of David's books have been adapted and released as films for television.
