Britain's Got Talent 2013: David Walliams will be back on the panel

David Walliams (Britain's Got Talent 2012)

David Walliams has revealed he will be back judging Britain's Got Talent in 2013.

The comedian tells Jonathan Ross on tonight's show that he'll be back alongside Alesha Dixon and Amanda Holden for auditions in the new year, but was unsure whether Simon would be joining them!

David and Aleha joined the panel this year, replacing Michael McIntyre and David Hassellhoff, who both left after only the first series.

It's been rumoured that the Little Britain star will scoop £800,000 for the new series, with the option to return for the 2014 series.

He said: "I’ve agreed to do two more. I can’t wait. It’s going to be a great series.

“Watching The X Factor now, I’m quite jealous that I’m not there because it’s such a load of fun."

Speaking to Jonathan, David also explains how being on the series has is like completing a full circle for him.

“One of my first jobs was writing for Ant and Dec. They had a show, a children’s show…I loved working with them, but I used to be quite naughty in the script meetings because, I was kind of bored sometimes, and, to amuse them, I would draw obscene drawings on the scripts and then pass them to them," he said.


He revealed: "And this has carried on to this day. Recently we were all staying in the same hotel in Los Angeles and I was passing obscene pictures under Ant’s door and then he started passing obscene ones under mine and I’ve got a framed picture at home that Ant had drawn. How much will that be worth in year’s to come?”
