David Walliams 'settles' lawsuit with Britains Got Talent bosses

David Walliams 'settles' lawsuit with Britains Got Talent bosses

The former BGT judge has reportedly come to an agreement with show bosses.

David Walliams has reportedly settled his lawsuit with the producers of Britain's Got Talent.

He had launched a legal battle against Fremantle, who make the hit show, after claiming he was forced out of his judging role.

The 52-year-old actor and comedian announced he was resigning from the show in November 2022 after a transcript from one of the audition shows was leaked.

The comedian has reportedly settled his lawsuit.

The transcript - seen by the Guardian - revealed certain 'disrespectful' comments made by Walliams about contestants during a London Palladium show in January 2020.

Walliams used explicit language, such as referring to a constant as a 'c**t,' according to the Guardian.

The comedian also reportedly said about a female contestant: "She’s like the slightly boring girl you meet in the pub that thinks you want to f**k them, but you don’t.

"I know, she’s just like: ‘Oh, f**k off!’ I was saying, she thinks you want to f**k her, but you don’t.

"It’s the last thing on your mind, but she’s like: ‘Yep, I bet you do!’ ‘No I don’t!’ I had a bit of a boner, but now it’s going, it’s now shrivelled up inside my body."

Shortly after the transcript was obtained by the Guardian and made public, Walliams issued an apology.

Walliams later revealed he was suing the production company behind the show - Fremantle Media.
