Brighouse stand-up comedian Jack Carroll is set to appear in BBC comedy Big School tonight (Friday)
Jack, the young comic who came second on Britain’s Got Talent last year, appears as new pupil Dean on the show, which airs on BBC One at 9.30pm.
The show’s writer David Walliams, who also stars in the series, said: “Jack Carroll was perfect to play a kid in this series and he was really funny. Myself and the Dawson Brothers [co-writers Andrew and Steve Dawson] wrote the part with him in mind, and we had a lot of fun writing material for him,
“I’ve stayed in touch with Jack and his mum ever since Britain’s Got Talent and I am delighted he wanted to be part of the series. I don’t want to give too much away, as he plays quite a surprising part!”
