Gangsta Granny, the BBC One adaptation of David Walliams' best - selling book, is to be released on DVD this Christmas on 24th November 2014. The feel-good family comedy stars Julia McKenzie in the title role, alongside an impressive all-star cast including Joanna Lumley, David Walliams, Miranda Hart, Rob Brydon and a hilarious cameo from superstar Robbie Williams.

Gangsta Granny tells the story of schoolboy Ben (Reece Buttery), who is bored beyond belief after he is made to stay at the house of his grandma, played by Julia McKenzie (Agatha Christie's Marple, Cranford); all she ever wants to do is stay in, play Scrabble, and eat cabbage soup.

Until one day, when Ben's grandma tells him a story that she was once an international jewel thief, and together they go on a wild adventure to complete the one heist she never quite managed in her criminal heyday - to break into the Tower of London and steal the crown jewels. Their quest brings them face-to-face with Her Majesty The Queen, played by Joanna Lumley (Absolutely Fabulous, Jam & Jerusalem).

David Walliams (Little Britain, Big School) and Miranda Hart (Call The Midwife, Miranda) appear as Ben's Strictly Come Dancing obsessed parents, Mike & Linda. Robbie Williams guest stars as flamboyant dancer Flavio Flavoli. Rob Brydon (Gavin & Stacey, The Trip) plays Mr Parker - a nosy neighbour who could scupper Ben and his grandma's plot and Harish Patel (Mr Stink, Run Fatboy Run) appears as newsagent Raj.
