BGT judge nearly blinded Simon Cowell for being too funny

David Walliams nearly blinded Simon Cowell for being funnier than him on Britain’s Got Talent.

Fellow judge Amanda Holden spilled the beans on the incident when describing the rivalry between the pair.

Amanda revealed that Simon, 54, narrowly missed the injury after David, 42, threw a pen straight at him.

Amanda said, “It’s actually gone quite sour! Simon is much funnier than David this year, I’m not even lying. And David has been quite violent towards him. He threw a pen at him and nearly blinded him!

“Simon said he wanted the truth to come out so I’m telling you now … he threw a pen and it just missed his eye. It could have been dangerous,” she added.

Britain’s Got Talent is back on Saturday at 7.15pm on ITV.
