He may make audiences laugh with his constant digs at Simon Cowell but it seems there is one person who can't bear David Walliams talking about him.
The 40-year-old comedian recently admitted that his supermodel wife Lara Stone hates it when he talks about his boss all the time.
'She has enjoyed watching the show but she hasn't enjoyed me just always going on about Simon,' Walliams said.
Not keen on the bromance: David Walliams has revealed that his wife Lara Stone gets fed up when he talks about Simon Cowell all the time
'”Oh, Simon did that, Simon did this, Simon likes this,” and she’s like, “Aargh Simon!” all the time.'
Speaking to The Sun, the Little Britain star went on to say that he and Cowell actually have similar taste when it comes to women.
'We were talking about women we liked in the past and there is quite a lot of crossover,' he explained.
But it's not just their choice of ladies that the famous two have in common as they apparently share the same sense of humour too.
Coming out of his shell: Cowell is said to believe that his 'true personality has emerged for the first time' thanks to Walliams joining the Britain's Got Talent panel
According to the newspaper Cowell believes his 'true personality has emerged for the first time' thanks to Walliams joining the Britain's Got Talent panel this year.
However, the funnyman also admitted that when he first met the music mogul 16 years ago, things weren't so amicable.
'I met Simon for the first time in 1996 when I wrote the script for the Smash Hits Poll Winners’ Party,' Walliams explained.
'I wrote this joke about Robson And Jerome who were appearing, which was just something mild like, “Wake up, Granny, it’s Robson and Jerome!”
Going live: Alesha Dixon, Walliams, Amanda Holden and Cowell will begin filming Britain's Got Talent live tomorrow
'Simon had signed them and looked after them at the time. So he came after me and said, “Are you the writer” I said, “Yeah,” and he went, “So you’re the problem!”'
Walliams said he reminded Cowell of this story recently after seeing him out and about and attending his 50th birthday party.
Fans of Britain's Got Talent will no doubt be excited about the start of the live show tomorrow night which will see Walliams and Cowell whittle down the talented contestants along with judges Amanda Holden and Alesha Dixon.
