David Walliams Reveals Why He Has A Different Chair On ‘Britain’s Got Talent’

David Walliams Reveals Why He Has A Different Chair On ‘Britain’s Got Talent’

The Britain's Got Talent stage is a place where magic happens. Whether it's actual magic or stunts or singing or dancing, there's no shortage of entertainment.

However a quick search on social media shows that there are plenty of people who are more concerned on what the judges are sitting on.

Yep, viewers appear to be really confused that David Walliams is sitting on a different style chair to Simon Cowell, Alesha Dixon and Amanda Holden.

Well, David has finally cleared up what all the fuss is about, telling his followers on Twitter: "For those of you who want to know why I have different chair to the other judges on @BGT it is because I had a back operation to remove a disc after my Thames swim for @sportrelief and so need to sit on chairs that are specially designed for people with back problems."

There you have it - not a lack of funds, no secret coverup and no illuminati conspiracy, just a back issue. What people should have been discussing was the father and son duo who got Simon's Golden Buzzer.

They wrote the track together and it was based around how lucky they are to have each other and their family. There can't have been many dry eyes in the house after they had finished belting out the song and playing their acoustic guitars.

Simon admitted ahead of the show (without naming the pair) that his own son had been in his thoughts when he decided to press the button.

In an interview with Radio Times, he said: "There was this kid and I was thinking, 'God, that literally could be Eric'. It wouldn't be me as the dad, but it could be Eric.

"There was something about this boy, he sang with his dad and I thought the song they wrote was really cool."

He also said that he could see hosts Ant McPartlin and Declan (Dec to his mates) Donnelly deciding whether or not they would press the button, but he wanted the opportunity.

He continued: "I caught a glimpse of Ant and Dec ready to run down and push the golden buzzer, and I thought, 'No way! This one is mine!'

"You have to watch this act, I think they are really great people, it's unusual to see a dad and his son, but it worked."
