David Walliams Slams Cheryl Fernandez-Versini Relationship Rumours, But Admits: 'I Asked Louis Walsh If Any Of Girls Aloud Were Single'

David Walliams is set to appear on ‘The Graham Norton Show’ on Friday, where he discusses rumours that he once dated Cheryl Fernandez-Versini.

The former Girls Aloud star joins David on the chat show, and the comedian takes the chance to end any rumours of a former relationship once and for all.

“When Girls Aloud came along I met Louis Walsh and asked him if any of the girls were single and he said he would ask,” David explains. “I thought he would do that discreetly, but he called a meeting of all of them and asked, ‘Do any of you want to go out with David Walliams?’

“It was a ‘No!’ And that was the end of that.”

David’s TV appearance comes just days after reports that he has separated from his wife Lara Stone.

On Tuesday, it was reported that the couple, who have a one-year-old son, have agreed to a “trial separation”.

“Everyone thought the marriage was strong,” a source told The Sun. “David is used to hiding his emotions with comedy because that’s what he’s always done. But on the inside it is a real wrench.

“[He] hopes it is a blip and that they can get the marriage back on track somehow, especially seeing as there is a child involved. He is still fiercely protective of Lara.”

David and Cheryl’s ‘Graham Norton Show’ appearances are to promote Comic Relief, and this year’s telethon will see David appear in a sketch with Professor Stephen Hawking.

There will also be a sketch from Dawn French, as the Vicar of Dibley, while Rowan Atkinson is set to reprise his role as Mr Bean.

See David and Cheryl's full interviews on 'The Graham Norton Show' at 10.35pm, on Friday 6 March, BBC One.
