Britain's Got Talent boss Simon Cowell is 'smitten' with new Judge David Walliams, one of thew show's hosts has claimed!

Speaking to The People, Dec said the pair had become "like peas in a pod" since kicking off auditions together earlier this month.

“You should see Simon when he is around Mr Walliams, it’s like nothing you’ve seen before. Simon absolutely loves him," the Geordie telly presenter told the tabloid.

He continued: “They spend all their time ­together and are often seen fawning over one another.

“They’re like two peas in a pod, the pair of them have this sort of strange bond. They laugh at one another’s jokes – which, by the way, aren’t funny. Everyone on the show takes the mickey out of them – they’re in their own little world.” Cowell, 52, returned to the ITV show this year after having a year off in 2011.

David joins Simon on this year's new look panel, which will see Amanda Holden and Alesha Dixon when it returns to TV screens this April.

“We poke fun at them for their bromance," Dec added. “There is clearly a whole lot of love there and I can’t wait for the viewers to see their chemistry.

“It is without a doubt great for the show. David is hilarious and Simon is loving being back. Then you’ve got Amanda and Alesha is doing brilliantly, she is really feisty. She is a great girl. She’s not nasty to the auditionees but if she thinks a bit of feisty criticism will help the acts then she won’t hold back.”
