David Walliams - David Walliams to voice Pudsey in movie

David Walliams is set to voice dancing dog Pudsey in 'Pudsey: The Movie'.

The 'Little Britain' comedian will voice the 'Britain's Got Talent'-winning act in a movie adventure from Simon Cowell's Syco Entertainment, which also produces the hit reality talent show, and Vertigo Films.

He said in a statement: ''I am thrilled to be providing the voice of Pudsey. I have been coming up with different voices for him ever since that first audition.''

Walliams, along with Cowell, serves as a judge on 'Britain's Got Talent', which was won by Pudsey and his trainer Ashleigh in 2012. The duo subsequently became internet sensations and were invited on various US talk shows including 'The Tonight Show with Jay Leno'.

'Pudsey: The Movie', which is expected for release in the UK in May 2014, is described as a family film which will see the canine star befriend a group of children.

The film's synopsis reads: ''A heartwarming, quintessentially British adventure for all the family, 'Pudsey: The Movie' follows cheeky London stray dog, Pudsey, who is quite happy being a lone ranger and looking out for number one until he meets siblings Molly (Meikle-Smith), George (Spike White) and Tommy (Malachy Knights).

''Following her divorce, their mother Gail (Jessica Hynes) is moving the family to the sleepy village of Chuffington-on-Sea and Pudsey tags along, to the dismay of their landlord Mr. Thorne and his cat Faustus. As Pudsey starts to settle in with the family and realize what he was missing when he was alone, he stumbles across Thorne and Fautus' evil plan and he determines to save them and the whole village.''

The flick will be directed by 'Horrid Henry: The Movie' helmer Nick Moore, based on a script from children's TV writer Paul Rose.
