O’Leary: Wally is a pen pal

Daily Star Sunday - - FRONT PAGE - ■ by JAMES INGHAM

DER­MOT O’Leary has been get­ting tips on be­com­ing a top au­thor from pal David Wal­liams.

The X Fac­tor host has fol­lowed the BGT judge by pub­lish­ing two sto­ries about Toto the Ninja Cat.

And Der­mot told how the co­me­dian has been se­cretly help­ing him.

He said: “David is a leg­end in this field. He’s a vet­eran and has been re­ally sweet.

“I sent my sec­ond book to him, and he said he re­ally en­joyed it.

“I got a lovely tweet say­ing, ‘That b**tard’s done it again.”

David has sold more than 25mil­lion copies of his books and they have been trans­lated into 53 dif­fer­ent lan­guages.

His sto­ries The Boy In The Dress, Mr Stink, Bil­lion­aire Boy and Gangsta Granny have all been adapted for TV.

But Der­mot warned: “David bet­ter watch out.”
