David Walliams “My partnership with Matt Lucas is over for the time being”
In probably the most open interview he has ever done, David Walliams spoke to BBC Radio 4 to promote his autobiography Camp David (released last week,) finally opened up about the end of his partnership with Matt Lucas. First the Britain’s Got Talent judge talked about their different work ethic saying: “We’re very different people and probably want different things and had different working methods.” He also revealed he had not shown Matt the book before it came out.
The interviewer then hones in on David saying “I WAS part of a double act” asking if David considers it over. “Well, it’s over for the time being. Whether it’s over for ever I don’t know. But Matt wanted to go off and do his own thing, he wanted to be himself on a show, he wanted to do ‘The Matt Lucas Awards’ and that’s why at the moment we are not doing things together. Whether we will in the future, I don’t know. I certainly hope so. But for the moment I’m enjoying my freedom.”
In the interview he also talked about how much he wanted to make his parents proud and that this was a huge part of why he wanted to do his Sport Relief challenges, besides raising so much money for charity. Saying that this was what motivates his friend George Michael too. Adding: “It still often comes down to making your parents proud. Often people who are, say, in the closet often say they couldn’t come out while their parents were still alive even though they are in their 50′s or something. So that was a big motivation for me.”
In the very frank interview David also opened up about his depression and suicide attempts and how his wife and mother feel about his book in an unprecedented way. Hear the special interview here http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b01n9yfx
