A FAMOUS radio duo is set to visit Colchester this weekend to sign their new book.

Comedy duo Greg James and Chris Smith, who met while working at BBC Radio 1 where Greg presents the breakfast show, have released a new children's book.

After the success of their bestselling Kid Normal series, they penned their latest release The Great Dream Robbery.

The new book follows the story of 12-year-old Maya Clayton and the Dream Bandits who are desperate to fall asleep and save Maya’s father from the nightmare that the villainous Lilith Delamere has trapped him in.

They face plenty of silly things from banana loving llamas and a cat called Bin Bag to singing and dancing unicorns.

Greg and Chris will be signing copies of what Puffin is calling its "biggest middle-grade fiction launch of the year", in Tesco Extra at Colchester Highwoods on Saturday (October 9).
