Fairytales have been adapted and reimagined so much through the years that it seems it has all been done. Until now!
Comedian Bec Hill played a literary Twitter game with her followers in which they put favourite fairytale characters in lockdown, forcing them to socially distance and change their stories completely.
The comedian, who has written for The Amazing World of Gumball, and satirical news programme The Now Show, is best known for her fabulously clever flip-book misheard lyrics videos (find our favourite below!)
Her COVID19-inspired ‘socially distanced fairytales’ tweets inspired her followers to come up with more- and some of them are pretty perfect.
