David Walliams hits the golden buzzer at Britain's Got Talent 2016 auditions

David Walliams golden buzzer

David Walliams has become the latest of the Britain's Got Talent judge to hit the golden buzzer this year.

The comic pressed the special button at auditions this evening in London at the Dominion Theatre in the West End.

"I just pressed my Golden Buzzer! @BGT," he tweeted live from the set.

It's no surprise to hear that David's pick is another "crazy" one and we can only imagine what act he's backed this year.

In 2014, David hit the golden buzzer for, err, 'unique' singer Christian Spridon while in 2015 it was wacky pianist performer Lorraine Bowen who got David's support.

When the golden buzzer is pressed, the act on stage is sent straight through to the live semi-finals shows in the Spring with each judge as well as hosts Ant and Dec allowed to use it just the once throughout the auditions.

After David's hit of the buzzer now only Simon Cowell is left yet to use the special fifth button this year.

Earlier this month, Amanda Holden was the first to press the golden buzzer at auditions in Liverpool, with sources telling us that Amanda was wowed by a young female singer who gave an "incredible" audition.

Meanwhile Ant and Dec and Alesha Dixon both pressed the buzzer on the same day of auditions at the weekend.

Britain's Got Talent starts on TV on ITV in the Spring.
