The funnyman will lend his vocal talents to the canine favourite, who won the show with trainer Ashleigh Butler, in the forthcoming film Pudsey: The Movie.
Speaking about his new role, Walliams said: "I am thrilled to be providing the voice of Pudsey. I have been coming up with different voices for him ever since that first audition."
Pudsey: The Movie is being co-produced by Simon Cowell's company Syco Entertainment.
Producers said the film features Pudsey as a stray who is taken in by a family and goes on to save a sleepy village from an evil plan.
A six-week shoot began at the weekend and the film is due for release in May.
