Britain's Got Talent 2017: David Walliams gets peed on by a dog

David Walliams got a shock at the Britain's Got Talent 2017 auditions this month when a dog peed on him.

The unfortunate mishap occurred during the final round of filmed try outs last week ahead of the show's return to TV later this year.

According to the Daily Star newspaper, an act had enticed both David and Simon Cowell on stage with the promise of 'dog yoga'

"When the dogs came on the judges were really excited," a source told the newspaper. "It can be tedious sitting there watching contestant after contestant, and we all know the magic animal acts can bring."

However when David and Simon joined in, the problems began.

And it wasn't just dogs with a weak bladder, as the source spilled: "What was even funnier was that Simon was having trouble doing the yoga because of his dodgy knees."

Britain's Got Talent 2017 hits our screens this Spring and it sounds as though we could be in for quite the series.

As well dog problems, it's been reported that an illusionist who was hoping to wow the judges with an underwater escape trick had his act go very wrong.

He had been ready to chain himself up before being submerged underwater in a tank where he would - hopefully free himself.

But the big performance ended in disaster when the water tank broke and flooded the stage, prompting fears of starting a fire with all of the filming electronics.

Meanwhile, another completely different act on stage at this year's BGT auditions caused chaos by storming off after receiving negative feedback from the judges.

A choir left the panel speechless when they walked off stage half way through the comments from the panel after a flop audition.

The musicians left Simon Cowell "open mouthed" when they decided to storm off after the music mogul declared: "That was one of the worst things I’ve ever seen in my life..."

Britain's Got Talent will air on ITV later this year.
