He might be one of Britain’s best-loved funnymen, but David Walliams revealed a darker side to his personality this week as extracts from his new autobiography were released.
After news of his past suicide attempts and battle with depression went public, the Little Britain star was clearly in need of a night out.

Dressed up in black tie, the actor looked suave as he accompanied his Dutch wife to dinner, clutching a black holdall.
The blonde supermodel looked on-trend in a buttoned up red, silk shirt, tucked into a short leather skirt, revealing her slim legs.
Her blonde hair hung loose over her shoulders while the star finished off her look with a black, studded clutch.

In his forthcoming tell-all book, Camp David, published later this month, David goes into unflinching detail about his struggle with depression and attempts to end his own life.
The 41-year-old star revealed that he attempted suicide aged just 12 and then again nine years ago after a relationship with a former girlfriend broke down.
Writing openly about his depression has clearly been cathartic experience for the children’s author and he seems on top form after admitting to his problems.
