David Walliams loves annoying Simon Cowell.
The 'Britain's Got Talent' judge says if he were to audition for the ITV show, his special talent would be making his co-panellist miserable.
Speaking during a Q&A to celebrate 'Gangsta Granny: The Ride' which will open at Alton Towers Resort in May, he said: "I’d do so many things to annoy him, he doesn’t like loud noises and people close to him…I’d do some kind of act to make his life a misery."
And David admitted that a previous 'Britain’s Got Talent' contestant inspired him to create a character for one of his books.
He said: "He was buzzed off very quickly, but it got me thinking, I thought a man who eats live cockroaches, what else might he do? Might he turn rats into burgers? Might he have a van which he sells those burgers from? So sometimes I meet someone in real life it gives me an idea."
David, 49, who has son Alfred, seven, with ex-wife Lara Stone, also revealed that becoming a father is the best thing to ever happen to him.
He said: "Nothing beats being a father…as soon as you become a parent that’s the whole focus of your life and you wish you’d done it sooner."
'Gangsta Granny: The Ride' plans to open on Monday 17th of May – book tickets now at www.altontowers.com
