David Walliams is in trouble with ITV producers after swearing at Britain’s Got Talent audition tapings.
The Britain’s Got Talent 2018 judges have returned and they’re currently filming at Blackpool for the first round of auditions.
The judges lineup hasn’t changed in six years – Simon Cowell, David Walliams, Amanda Holden and Alesha Dixon have returned for the 12th series of Britain’s Got Talent.
David has already caused a storm since filming began a day ago – He has reportedly asked for a “fifty per cent pay rise” according to his co-star (and boss) Simon Cowell.
During filming at Blackpool, The Mirror quotes David saying: “It’s all about money with Simon.”
Simon joked back: “Seeing as your agent asked for a 50% pay rise, that’s a bit rich coming from you!”
Britain’s Got Talent producers have also told the comedian off numerous times for swearing during the judges verdict.
David Walliams reportedly told child magician Brook Exley, 14, that he “f***ing loved” his audition.
The Sun reports that ITV bosses ran to David’s desk after his comment to remind him to be mindful that there were young people in the audience.
An audience member told the paper: “David was back to full form on the first day of auditions.
“Things escalated during Brook’s audition as he made the surprising comment about his dead rabbit and then swore while giving his verdict.
“We saw a producer run up to him and tell him to be careful given there were plenty of families in the audience and young kids.” the source added.
Brook told the judges that his pet rabbit he used for magic tricks sadly passed away, David then shocked the young magician saying his dead rabbit is now “dog food.”
Britain’s Got Talent 2018 will air on ITV later this year.
