Simon Cowell and David Walliams appeared on The Jonathan Ross Show on Saturday to discuss the new series of Britain’s Got Talent, and revealed a new double act in the making.
It seems clear now that the infamous Simon and Cheryl Cole relationship is over for good. As if it wasn’t enough that Simon’s returned to British TV without so much as a sideways glance to her, Chez may be left feeling even more jealous after he showed off his new squeeze.
And David seems to have got a lot closer to Simon than Cheryl ever had: he knows how he makes his hair so magnificently Lego-y, has pictures on his phone of him at home with his dog, and supports his decision not to come back to the UK X Factor, “You don’t have time do you?” he said. Bless.
Of course, they are also much physically closer – there’s no chance that David wouldn’t be all over anyone he … well, was anywhere near. Simon deals well with David’s notorious stroking and massaging actions, and compared their relationship to the Sebastian and the Prime Minister sketch from Little Britain.
But touchingly, it is clear the two genuinely have formed a bond, and David talks seriously about how much he enjoys his judging role.
As he relaxes for once, we even get a rare shot of Simon’s sillier side, dressed up as ‘Wonderdog’ in to promote his record company (no we don’t know how blue dog superheroes sell records either, but Simon is the brain behind a Mr Blobby number one we suppose), and with Arnie-esque hair and muscles back in the eighties.
Even Danny DeVito, who was also on the show, was impressed – though we’re not sure if he was just there to make Simon look tall, compared to 6’2” David.
