Channel 4 to reveal Dahl’s most marvellous book

Channel 4 will broadcast a special programme revealing the nation’s favourite Roald Dahl book.

The programme will mark the 100th anniversary of Dahl’s birth and will feature a host of celebrities championing their favourite of the author’s books.

The marvellous books in question include Dahl classics such as Charlie & the Chocolate Factory, The BFG, The Witches, Matilda, The Twits and many more.

The 90-minute special will be hosted by David Walliams and include contributions from Steven Spielberg, Julie Walters, Richard Curtis, Mackenzie Crook, Jarvis Cocker, Johnny Vegas, Jessica Hynes and Miriam Margolyes. It will also include footage of Rik Mayall’s iconic reading of George’s Marvellous Medicine.

Across the show, viewers will be invited to Tweet their opinions, with the winning book being revealed in the final part of the show.

Which book would you vote for? My favourite has always James and the Giant Peach since we read it at junior school.
