Simon Cowell was aghast on Britain’s Got Talent 2019 tonight when ventriloquist Jimmy Tamley’s audition resulted in David Walliams giving him a STRIPTEASE.
Jimmy has been a professional ventriloquist for four decades, performing at pubs, clubs and children’s birthday parties.
He’s even made a number of minor television appearances, with a “huge array” of characters and voices in his repertoire.
Now Jimmy has taken on one of TV’s biggest talent contests – and turned two of its judges in to human dummies.
Tonight’s BGT series premiere saw the 64-year-old invite David and Amanda Holden on stage, fitting them with comedy face masks.
He was able to control their mouths, leaving them completely at his mercy.
David had little choice but to play along as Jimmy named skipping and ballet dancing as two of his unexpected hobbies.
However, things took an unexpected turn when he named stripteasing as the Little Britain star’s third supposed pastime.
Playing up to his long-running admiration for Simon, David removed his jacket and began walking towards his boss.
He then opened his shirt, dropped his trousers and climbed up on the judges’ desk, leaving the audience in stitches – and the Syco mogul utterly horrified.
Jimmy couldn’t resist ending by giving himself a seal of approval from his puppets, making them say: “It’s a yes from me!”
Once the masks were off, David reacted: “I feel like my career is over, but that was fantastic!
“You’re a very funny man, your experience shines out.”
Amanda added: “What I always love is when somebody has been honing their craft for years and years.
“I really hope that our show pushes you right to the forefront and makes this dream come true.”
Simon, meanwhile, was still coming to terms with what had happened.
“I’m going to have some seriously bad dreams tonight,” he gasped.
“I don’t remember seeing an act like this in all the years we’ve done Britain’s Got Talent.”
Jimmy left with four yeses, making him one of the hopefuls shortlisted for the upcoming live semi-finals.
Britain’s Got Talent continues next Saturday at the usual time of 8.00pm on ITV.
