Britain’s Got Talent star David Walliams branded contestant a ‘c**t’ and made X-rated sex slur

Britain’s Got Talent star David Walliams branded elderly contestant a ‘c**t’ and made X-rated sex slur against female competitor: BGT judge apologises for ‘disrespectful, private’ comments’ after transcript of ITV show is leaked

  • The comments were made during 2020 auditions at the London Palladium
  • The comments occurred as part of a ‘private conversation’ David Walliams said
  • But he has apologised for the comments but said they were made to ‘friends’

Britain’s Got Talent judge David Walliams called an elderly contestant a ‘c**t’ and made sexualised and derogatory remarks about contestants while recording one episode of the ITV show a leaked transcript has revealed.

Walliams, one of the UK’s best-known television personalities and children’s book authors, was recorded referring to one contestant as a ‘c**t’ and saying of another: ‘She thinks you want to f**k her, but you don’t.’

The offensive remarks, revealed by the Guardian, are said to have taken place during a recorded audition show at the London Palladium in January 2020. 

In one incident an older performer engaged in lighthearted banter with the judges in which he made a jibe about Walliams.

After the audition, the pensioner left, after which Walliams is said to have described him as a ‘c**t’ three times.  

Microphones used to capture chat between the judges picked up the comments.

In a separate incident a female contestant auditioning on the same show had walked off stage. 

When her performance was over, Walliams remarked: ‘She’s like the slightly boring girl you meet in the pub that thinks you want to f**k them, but you don’t.’

Walliams reiterated: ‘She thinks you want to f**k her, but you don’t.’

He then added: ‘I know, she’s just like: ‘Oh, f**k off!’ I was saying, she thinks you want to f**k her, but you don’t. It’s the last thing on your mind, but she’s like: ‘Yep, I bet you do!’ ‘No I don’t!’ I had a bit of a boner, but now it’s going, it’s now shrivelled up inside my body.’

In a statement, Walliams told the Guardian: ‘I would like to apologise to the people I made disrespectful comments about during breaks in filming for Britain’s Got Talent in 2020. 

‘These were private conversations and – like most conversations with friends – were never intended to be shared. Nevertheless, I am sorry.’

Lawyers for Walliams and Thames TV, the production company behind Britain’s Got Talent, said the comments were part of a private conversation and were never intended for broadcast. 

A Thames spokesperson added that despite this, his language was ‘inappropriate’ and he had been reminded of the show’s ‘expectations as to future professional conduct’.

A spokesperson for Cowell and Syco Entertainment, the co-producer of Britain’s Got Talent, said: ‘We were unaware of the alleged conversation until contacted by the Guardian, and whilst it is not suggested Simon heard the alleged remarks, we can confirm he did not. 

‘Britain’s Got Talent is a family show and we do not condone the use of any such language.’
