‘Britain’s Got Talent’ Launch: David Walliams Takes More Than A Little Inspiration From Simon Cowell

Nailed it.

The ‘Britain’s Got Talent’ judges were out in force on Thursday (7 April), to launch the new series of the ITV, and we’ll admit to having done a double take when we saw David Walliams on the red carpet.

The funnyman donned a familiar looking ensemble for the event, and we have to say, the result was simply stunning:

Wonder if Simon's partner Lauren Silverman helped David perfect the look?

Wow.  Just… wow.

With his deep V neckline and super high-waisted trousers, David was a dead ringer for his pal and colleague Simon Cowell, who may or may not have been given a heads up on the joke.

We really hope he had no idea.

That scowl!

David and Simon have always got on famously, but at this year’s auditions - which will be screened in the coming weeks - there was a little tension between the pair.

Earlier this week, Amanda Holden lifted the lid on the row, agreeing that Si went a little far with his comment.

Amanda and Alesha Dixon also put their best feet forward on the red carpet at the big launch.
