Matt Lucas loving David Walliams on Britain's Got Talent 2012

Matt Lucas and David Walliams

Britain's Got Talent 2012 judge David Walliams has been given the seal of approval from comic pal Matt Lucas.

New BGT judge Simon has proved a hit with the audience and viewers, thanks mainly to his quick witted replies and winding up of boss Simon Cowell.

Speaking of the new comic pairing, David's Little Britain co-star Matt joked: "It's rare to see him on a show with someone camper than him!

"It's good that Simon Cowell's got someone there who will challenge him and tease him. I don't think Simon quite realises what he's let himself in for."

He added: "It's also perfect for David to do. David's achieved so much, not just in comedy, but also acting on stage, in drama.

"I think he should be made a Sir for all the charity stuff he's done. Or at least a Dame."

Britain's Got Talent 2012 continues this Saturday on ITV1 at 8PM.
