New Britain's Got Talent judge David Walliams has revealed he's only just getting used to rejecting hopefuls from the show.

Speaking halfway through this year's auditions, the comic confessed he was initially nervous about pressing his buzzer when hopeless wannabes fumbled about on stage.

In an interview with Chris Evans on Radio 2, he said: "I thought the hardest thing would be pressing the buzzer because, you know, I'm an actor. I've been in an audition and I know what it's like to get rejected.

"It's tough, but actually sometimes people are rubbish and you want them to stop what they're doing. And also sometimes you want to save their embarrassment because the audience are shouting 'off'.

"So you want to press the buzzer too, so they don't humiliate themselves anymore."

The Little Britain’s tar also dismissed claims that his comments and jokes would be too rude for TV.

He added: "Simon's laughing, the audience are laughing and it's all good. I didn't need to worry because he's got a great sense of humour and he's like the king and I'm the court jester."

Britain's Got Talent returns to TV screens in April.
