David Walliams pokes fun at Simon Cowell’s back-breaking bike accident in Britain’s Got Talent Christmas special
CHEEKY David Walliams pokes fun at Simon Cowell’s near-crippling bike accident in the Britain’s Got Talent Christmas special.
The comic, 49, will perform a routine in which a puppet of the star crashes a mini machine off the ITV show’s stage.
Simon’s e-bike accident in August saw him requiring back surgery to prevent a lifetime in a wheelchair.
In the first-ever BGT festive show, at 8pm on Christmas Day, David will introduce a comedy extravaganza featuring the series’ most memorable funnymen and women.
Dressed as a snowman he will fly onto the stage clutching the Simon puppet.
He will say, ‘Little Simon, be careful on your electric bike’ before putting the doll on the tiny bike which rides off stage.
The real Simon, 61, was not present to witness the gag as his injury meant Diversity dancer Ashley Banjo has replaced him on the panel alongside David, Amanda Holden and Alesha Dixon. A source said: “Thankfully Simon is very good at laughing at himself as he’s had the worst year.
“Breaking your back in three places is not much fun at all. David is never one to miss a comedy trick. But he clearly misses Simon.”
BGT supremo Simon is on holiday in Barbados with partner Lauren Silverman and their son Eric, six.
