David Walliams explains his 'special' Britain's Got Talent chair

David Walliams golden buzzer

David Walliams has explained his 'special' Britain's Got Talent chair.

Some VERY eagle-eyed viewers last night noticed that David was sitting on a different chair to the other judges.

Nothing escapes the users of Twitter...

Well just in case you were wondering the reason, David has revealed all.

He took to Twitter himself to say: "For those of you who want to know why I have different chair to the other judges on @BGT it is because I had a back operation to remove a disc after my Thames swim for @sportrelief and so need to sit on chairs that are specially designed for people with back problems."

So there you go.

Chair drama aside, last night's episode of Britain's Got Talent proved to be the most watched yet as David returned to screen.

He, Simon Cowell, Alesha Dixon and Amanda Holden were back behind the judges' desk for the third round of try outs.

Those in the latest try outs included illusionist group Magus Utopia, who freaked out everyone with their performance, 16-year-old singer Amy Marie Borg and ballroom dancing duo Lexie and Christopher.

Tim and Jack Goodacre, 43-year-old Dad, Tim and 12-year-old Jack are from Norwich, went one further. The father and son sang an original song ‘The Lucky One’s together, and got Simon Cowell's golden buzzer.

Saturday's show was watched by an average audience of 8.8 million between 8PM and 9:25PM.

The episode, which peaked with more than 10 million viewers, was up almost a million viewers on last weekend's episode.
