Britain's Got Talent 2017 judge David Waliams has confessed he doesn't rate the show's better acts.

Although given his rather wacky golden buzzer choices over the years, it's not that much of a surprise.


Speaking at a Q&A in London, David said he was often left bored by singers no matter how good they are.

He explained: “The talented people bore me. If I hear another person singing Mariah Carey or Whitney Houston.

“It is so boring. I much prefer the untalented people who come on the show as opposed to those who are talented. I like an old man hoola-hooping. That is pure joy."

He explained: “It is a celebration of eccentricity and anyone can get up and have a go. Everyone has an uncle who can play the spoons or an aunty who can sing opera.”

Meanwhile, David joked he wanted to swap out Alesha Dixon and Amanda Holden for some replacements next year.

After five years with the girls on the panel, David suggested: “Can I swap one of them or both of them?


"I like Rita Ora a lot and I would like her to be sat next to me and maybe Sharon Osbourne.”

Britain's Got Talent 2017 continues Saturday nights on ITV.
