'Britain's Got Talent' star David Walliams has joked his fellow judge - and boss - Simon Cowell is "annoying because he has got it all", and suggested that was why people enjoy seeing him get put in his place
David Walliams says Simon Cowell is "annoying because he has got it all".
The 'Britain's Got Talent' star has admitted he will be trying to put his fellow judge - and boss - off as much as possible during the contest's upcoming live shows because it's what viewers want to see.
He told the Daily Mirror newspaper's We Love TV magazine: "Viewers love seeing him brought down a peg or two. They love him, but they love to hate him too.
"He is annoying because he has got it all. I think that's why Will Young won the first 'Pop Idol' - because he took Simon on.
"If the judges just say their pieces and there is no interaction between them, it's boring. There has to be a dynamic between them, and I think that's the case between us."
David was able to get under Simon's skin during the auditions when he pressed his golden buzzer to put through singer Christian Spridon - much to the horror of the media mogul.
He said: "I like camp acts - and he's very camp. Funnily enough, if people are too talent, I can actually find that a turn-off. I look for who's the most entertaining."
