The new series of Britain’s Got Talent is just around the corner and already the gloves are off between a certain two judges.
And it’s comic David Walliams who has taken the first punch, quipping that Simon Cowell is “peeved” that hosts Ant and Dec have OBEs when he hasn’t received the knighthood he believes he deserves. Harsh.
He went on to say that it would be “annoying to have to call him Sir Simon”, and hopes it never happens.
David joked: “Simon definitely thinks he should have a knighthood. I don’t know why, I don’t know what he thinks he’s done. Maybe by just being famous for long enough.
“What he doesn’t realise is you have to do something positive, you can’t just spread evil and think that you’ll get one. So I think he’s a bit peeved about it.
“I think he thinks he was going to get one at one stage. Who knows, though it would be annoying to have to call him Sir Simon, I wouldn’t like that, so I really hope it doesn’t happen."
