Fans of Britain’s Got Talent will of course know that comedian David Walliams calls Simon Cowell “My Simon” and often, the pair share banter that strays into ‘camp’ territory, despite both men being heterosexual…

However, judge Alesha Dixon reckons that between them, David and Simon are turning BGT into a “gay sitcom.”

But she added that many of the pair’s antics won’t be aired as they’re too risqué for family viewing.

She said, “Britain’s Got Talent is like a gay sitcom this year…

“There’s David and Simon who are a couple, then me and Amanda Holden who are TV wives.

“That’s exactly what it is. So much is said that is too risky for the main show, especially from David.

“It is such a shame we don’t do a BGT out-takes show that goes out after the watershed.

“The tone has got lower and lower this year thanks to David.

“You think you have heard it all and then he comes out with something else. It’s hilarious.”

The Daily Star adds, “David and Simon’s blossoming relationship proved a huge hit on last year’s show.


“The married comic, 41, had viewers in stitches with his constant jokes implying Cowell, 53, was gay. And according to David, this year will be no different.”

At this week’s auditions in London, David told the audience, “Funny how Simon has never married. Isn’t it peculiar, isn’t it queer?”

Of Simon, David recently told the paper, “We do have a lot of fun together. We also argue but it’s more a lovers’ tiff than anything.

“I’m not allowed to sit next to Simon – Amanda and Alesha won’t let me. They are like a human shield.

“I keep trying but they won’t let me.”

Here’s a reminder of Simon and David together on the show…
