Roald Dahl was a beloved writer, and a childhood staple for so many of us. Today would have been his 100th birthday, and the world has been honouring his memory by sharing their favourite of his works.

As with many successful authors, his work has been adapted for both the TV and movie screen. To celebrate his 100th birthday, we have picked out 5 Dahl film adaptations that you can watch and enjoy tonight. We've also included some facts that you might not have known about these films.

We left out this year's version of The BFG, as it's still in cinemas. You can read the review in our movie review section.
