David Walliams says that Britain's Got Talent is far better than 'boring' sister show The X Factor,

The comic has confessed he doesn't really bother with boss Simon Cowell's second reality series, admitting to fast forwarding through the performances.


"I think to myself ‘Why am I watching this programme?’," David told the Daily Star Sunday.

Explaining why he thought BGT was the superior show - aside from being a judge on it, of course, David said: “Because people on Britain’s Got Talent will do anything, hopefully it never gets boring.

“It is a feel good show, unlike other talent shows which keep telling you how important it is and that you are going to be the biggest star in the world.

“With BGT you know exactly what you are going to win – some money and the chance to perform at the Royal Variety Performance."

He added: “You are not told you are going to be the biggest star the world has ever known and that you are going to sell millions of records around the world.”

The Britain's Got Talent 2017 live semi-final shows continue Wednesday, May 31 until Friday, June 2.


The semi-finals will air from 7:30PM on ITV each evening with the results from 9:30PM.

Eleven acts will make the final on Sunday, June 4.
