Jealous David Walliams Storms Off ‘BGT,’ Then Does THIS To Simon
BGT judge David Walliams got a little jealous of his co-star Simon Cowell back in 2013, and it led him to storm off the set. When he got back a few minutes later, he behaved like only David can.
David and Simon’s friendship is a beloved part of the talent show, and it’s been on full display for many years now. Read on to find out more about why David walked out during a Q&A session.
David Walliams Walks Out Of ‘BGT’
During Britain’s Got More Talent in 2013, the judges were taking questions from fans calling in. When a caller named George said he wanted to talk to Simon, David Walliams stood up in offense.
“What?!” he exclaimed, walking around the judges’ table and off the set as the other judges laughed and the audience applauded. Host Stephen Mulhern declared, “It’s the first time it’s happened on the show, and it happened in style.”
After Simon answered George’s question, David poked his head out, and everyone coaxed him back to his seat with the promise of another caller. This time, a fan named Chantelle had a question for David.
David Dances On Simon Cowell
Chantelle mentioned that David Walliams had said he would dance to contestant MckNasty (a drummer) in the disco. “Can you show us what the moves would look like now?” she asked him.
The show played the song “Fame” as David got up to dance. He showed off some kicks, and then he immediately hurried over to Simon Cowell. David danced on Simon’s lap while the other judge laughed.
Then David pulled Simon out his chair, but the music mogul wasn’t interested and insisted on sitting back down. David finally gave up and returned to his own seat while everyone laughed.
