Earlier this year Cowell took a dig at the comedian over his divorce from model Lara Stone.
‘Britain’s Got Talent’ judge Amanda Holden has admitted that sometimes things can get a little too personal between Simon Cowell and David Walliams on the ITV talent show. Holden revealed that earlier this year Walliams became very ‘p**sed off’ with Cowell, after he joked about his recent divorce from model Lara Stone.
David Walliams was left shocked when Simon Cowell mentioned his divorce during ‘BGT’.
The incident happened when Cowell asked a contestant “Why aren’t you married?”, to which Walliams interrupted to ask the music mogul the same question. But Cowell quickly fired back at Walliams and asked him “Well, why aren’t you married?”.
The talent show will return for its tenth series later this year.
Simon Cowell has said he and his fellow judges on ‘Britain’s Got Talent’, Alesha Dixon, Amanda Holden and David Walliams, would never work again if people knew how ‘naughty’ they are backstage.

Simon Cowell says things can get very naughty backstage at ‘BGT’.
Speaking to The Mirror, Cowell said: “I’m not even going there, seriously. It’s bad! Very naughty. We’d never work again if it went out. That’s how we say goodbye to Got Talent – ‘And this is what we didn’t broadcast…’”
