Simon Cowell and David Walliams' BGT feud

Simon Cowell and David Walliams have been feuding on 'Britain's Got Talent'.

The judges - who have always enjoyed light-hearted banter on the ITV show - have had a strained relationship during filming after Simon made a joke about David's divorce from model Lara Stone.

Co-star Amanda Holden explained to Fabulous magazine: "David made it personal [first]... he dares it and Simon comes straight back in at him, and the joke ends there because he can always top David.

"He's out-funnied David a lot this series. David is very p***ed off, actually."

However, Simon gave no hint of trouble between the pair when he joked about setting David up with "someone with bad eyesight".

He told The Sun: "It might be a little bit early. When he gives me the nod, I would be very, very, very happy to fix him up.

"I need to find someone with very, very bad eyesight and then we'd start from there.

"David is a pain. But it's worth it."

And Simon also joked that Amanda and co-judge Alesha Dixon have gone over his head to ensure they return next season.

He said: "According to my tweet I've hired them all again already, but of course Amanda and Alesha typed that without telling me."
