Walliams reveals wife's 'jealousy'

Britain's Got Talent judge David Walliams has said his model wife is "jealous" of his relationship with show supremo Simon Cowell.

The Little Britain Star, who has joined the judging panel of the ITV1 show for the first time, said he had upset Dutch-born Lara Stone by constantly talking about Cowell.

He said: "Lara is jealous because every time I come back from work I'm 'Oh, guess what Simon did today'."

Walliams joked he had started calling his wife "Simon" in bed, adding: "The first few times she didn't mind, but then wearing the mask...".

But Cowell said the relationship was more like the one he used to have with his parent's pet dog.

He said: "My mum and dad used to have a Dachshund dog and as it got a bit older it used to get on my leg occasionally and hump my leg... that kind of is our relationship".

Fellow judge Amanda Holden said she did not think twice about returning to the show so soon after the birth of her daughter, Hollie, left her critically ill in hospital.

She joked: "I was desperate to see Simon, I saw him when I was flatlining actually."

She added that she did not "consider it work", saying: "I think digging the roads is work or working nine to five, sitting at a desk and pressing a buzzer for a day is a treat."
