Harry Hill has joined forces with the Beano to find the UK's funniest primary school class.

The "TV Burp" star has been announced as a special guest judge in the iconic British comic's nationwide search which will see teachers up and down the country nominations their class" best jokes and pranks in a bid to be crowned the winner.

Harry said "This competition is an incredible opportunity for British kids to release their inner-comedian and let loose their imaginations.

"It's a great way for kids to show they know best when it comes to telling rib-tickling jokes and show the adults how it's done."

Primary schools can submit the jokes online before the May 10 deadline, and the top 10 jokes - chosen by the 54-year-old comedian and a team of the Beano's best gag makers - will appear on the publication's website with kids voting for their favourite.

"Jokes are meant to be silly, naughty and imaginative; they are also the perfect way of injecting some much needed LOLZ into the classroom whilst encouraging kids to develop their literacy skills.

"We've had some fantastic entries so far and we are looking forward to reading more of the best jokes from across the country."

Last year, Harry released his second book in the "Matt Millz" series to inspire kids to start out in comedy.
