Christopher Biggins launches Myro audio books

I'm A Celebrity TV star wants a TV series and stage play based on the brand.

Actor and pantomime veteran Christopher Biggins (pictured, right) has launched a series of Myro: The Smallest Plane in the World audio books and apps.

The I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here TV show winner narrated the children's audio books, which launched on October 30th.

Myro was created by Nick Rose (pictured, left) after he bought a Microlight in 2004, flew it around Australia, and was inspired to create a brand based on the vehicle.

Biggins promoted Myro to over one million viewers on ITV's Loose Women show, as well as a radio campaign which included interviews on Heart FM.

He wants the brand to expand into a TV show and, of course, a stage show play.

Biggins said: "I’m very excited to be narrating Myro, The Smallest Plane in the World. I had such a great experience in the Australian jungle, and now it is time to bring my love of the country to a new generation of children. 

"My aim is to see Myro move onto the small screen as a TV series and then into theatres as a stage play – so watch this space, as like Myro, I think these exciting new productions will take off."

Creator Nick Rose added: "There is strong demand for a learning-based storybook and app targeted predominately at boys, and I’m very pleased to be bringing Myro to market. 

"Christopher Biggins is such a professional and the warmth and enthusiasm that he brings to the Myro series is extraordinary."
