David Walliams wants X Factor job
David Walliams has asked Simon Cowell if he can be his guest at the Judges Houses on 'The X Factor' later this year
David Walliams wants to be Simon Cowell's guest at the Judges' Houses on 'The X Factor'.
The 42-year-old is envious of the music mogul's close friendship with returning judge Cheryl Cole and wants to find away to get on the ITV talent show in order to reclaim his title as "Simon's favourite girl."
Speaking to The Sun newspaper, he said: "I really want to be Simon's helper at his judges' home in Barbados.
"I told him I'd come out of his closet but he said no. I won't be Simon's favourite girl any more. I will try to temper my jealousy when I watch the new series of 'X Factor' and see Cheryl and Simon being so close."
Despite his envy of Cheryl, 31, the 'Britain's Got Talent' panellist was over the moon when he'd heard she'd secretly married Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini earlier this month following a whirlwind romance.
He joked: "Now she's married, Simon will have to stop holding a candle for her."
However, David - who is married to stunning model Lara Stone - was glad the former Girls Aloud singer kept the wedding a secret from Simon, 54, as he believes he would have "blabbed" about it.
He explained: "Simon is terrible at keeping secrets. Cheryl was very wise not to tell him her big news. He'd have definitely blabbed it."
Meanwhile, the 'X Factor' is set to hit screens in the autumn with Simon, Cheryl, Louis Walsh and Mel B all confirmed to have a seat on the panel.
