Britain's Got Talent: David Walliams to leave for BBC One?

David Walliams (Britain's Got Talent 2012)

Britain's Got Talent star David Walliams is reportedly looking to leave ITV1 for BBC1 again!

The comic signed up as a judge for the new series of Britain's Got Talent earlier this year, sitting on the panel with Amanda Holden, Simon Cowell and fellow new judge Alesha Dixon.

But according to The Sun, the Beeb are looking to pinch the former Little Britain funnyman to entertain viewers on Saturday nights.

The newspaper claims that BBC One boss Danny Cohen is working hard on wooing David in a bid to annoy Simon Cowell and spice up BBC One's weekend primetime viewing.

A supposed BBC source told the tabloid today: “David is someone we’re very interested in for Saturday nights.

“He has the kind of warmth that will connect well with BBC1 audiences. It’s early days but we’re hopeful of sorting something.”

David replaced Michael McIntyre on Britain's Got Talent earlier this year, the third time the panel had changed in as many years.

Simon Cowell returned to the show after quitting the year before, while Alesha Dixon left Strictly to join the new look BGT line up.

Despite these new rumours, David seemed to reveal he'd very much be back for another series of Britain's Got talent in the new year.

"Me & my Simon are coming to Scotland for #BGT!... " he tweeted last week. "...I’ll wear a kilt if you promise that you’ll audition. I’ll even bring Bert."
