Who is Dave Spud? Dave, is just an ordinary kid, an average boy and, an unwitting creator of chaos!! Dave, our magnet for disaster, is a fighter against the odds and our unlikely hero. He knows that no matter how rubbish things get, there is always room for them to get worse. But bring it on! For Dave and his Spud family are united – together they WILL prevail and do so with GUSTO! Side note: And be back in time for tea.

The show first aired in September 2019 and is now into its third series with 104 episodes in total, and a multi-award-winning team of writers, producers, directors, music producers and cast, including Edward Foster, Iain Harvey, Dave Ingham, Hannah George, Johnny Vegas, Philip Glenister, Jane Horrocks, Lisa Hammond and Gina Yashere to name but a few.
