David Walliams has perfect place for The Queen to send Prince Andrew - up in a UFO
Britain's Got Talent judge David Walliams has found the perfect hiding place for Andrew Windsor - a UFO.The Little Britain comedian came up with the idea after a wacky singer auditioned for the new series.She’s called Flexy Beats and calls herself "a pop superstar from out of this world".The TV judges got a shock when she arrived on stage for the London auditions in a spaceship.And backed by alien-looking dancers she burst into song.However Alesha Dixon and Amanda Holden were not very impressed and buzzed her off.Alesha told her: “I think you should go back in your spaceship.”But Walliams quipped to the crowds that the UFO might come in handy for the royal who is facing a lawsuit over sex abuse claims.He joked: “I think we can all agree Prince Andrew can go up in the spaceship.”Auditions for the new series of Britain’s Got Talent are underway at The London Palladium.The ITV show - hosted by Ant and Dec - never got on air last year due to COVID restrictions.But filming has resumed for the 2022 edition and is set to go out in the spring.It comes after David was reportedly warned he could be fired from BGT if he isn't careful after yet more mocking of Simon Cowell.TV’s “Mr Nasty” thinks the Little Britain comedian takes things too far with his jibes and taunts.And during filming for the new series of the talent show this week, it seems Walliams pushed him over the edge.The mischief-maker – who has been a judge on the show for 10 years – seized on the fact that Cowell did not know what a millionaire shortbread biscuit was and joked about him being out of touch.However the TV and music guru hit back: “I’d be careful if I were you.“You’ll be out of a job and end up a contestant on Pointless next year.” This isn’t the first
