Simon Cowell has given David Walliams a 'restraining order' on BGT


Simon Cowell has apparently been trying his best to keep David Walliams away from him on this year's Britain's Got Talent.

The pair will be back behind the judges desk together when BGT's tenth series hits screens next month.

And it sounds as though we should get ready for the same bickering we've come to expect over the past five years.

"Simon was joking that he had placed a ban on David so he has to stand 10 feet away from him and the acts at all times," BGT co-host Dec revealed this week.

The Geordie TV presenter also teased that, for the first time ever, David's mum also got in the act after Simon was late to filming.

Dec told heat magazine: “David’s mum was happy to misbehave when sat as a judge in Simon’s place for a few of the acts.

"She certainly took no prisoners buzzing acts and telling people what she thought of them.”

The new series of Britain's Got Talent begins on ITV in April.
