David Walliam's supermodel ex-wife branded him 'mean' long before his BGT scandal
Britain's Got Talent after his disrespectful comments about a former contestant were exposed. However, the star, whose historic gags on Little Britain have also been deemed "controversial" by critics, was even declared "mean" by ex-wife Lara Stone at the height of their romance.Dutch fashion model Lara, 38, married David around one year after meeting him back in 2009, and they were divorced six years later.However, even when the Chanel, Louis Vuitton and Prada model declared herself "madly in love" with him in an interview given just after the pair got engaged, she still admitted he was "a bit mean".She'd added to Interview magazine that she interpreted his mean streak "in a good way".The pair went on to have a son, Alfred, now nine, before ending their marriage in 2015 after David cited "unreasonable behaviour".An anonymous colleague on BGT has since referenced Lara's comments, and added that he previously fell out with his Little Britain co-star Matt Lucas - now more famous for hosting Great British Bake Off - over "nothing".The colleague added in quotes published in the Daily Mail: "If you talk to any of the make-up artists or crew, they will say the same thing, that he just conjures an atmosphere."He will sit there and not speak and everyone ends up on eggshells.

David Walliams' notorious moments including vile skit where he pulled men's trousers down
Britain’s Got Talent in 2020. It is reported that he called one contestant a “c***” and said of another: “She thinks you want to f*** her, but you don’t.”As David continues to face backlash on social media, several of his past appearances have been discussed, including an uncomfortable skit which saw him pull down men’s trousers on stage. The footage, which was filmed in 2007, appears in a BBC documentary that followed David and former co-star Matt Lucas take their Little Britain stage show to Australia.It shows David playing a children’s entertainer called Des Kay who invites men from the audience to play a game of “hide the sausage”. In the disturbing video, David invites one boy on stage who says he is 16, to which David replied: “Bingo! You’re a big boy for 16 aren’t you, eh? That’s what I’ll tell the judge.”  He then proceeds to kiss the audience members on the lips and then pulls down their trousers, leaving a few of them semi-naked on stage and scrambling to cover themselves up.The clips also show David climbing on top of the boys and rubbing against them as part of the skit.Speaking about the skit at the time, David said on the documentary: “It didn’t start like that, it kind of grew when I became greedy for laughs.“You’ve got to know the boundaries, I mean, that is funny, but if I started exposing their penis or something, it would just be horrible, it would just be abuse.” The clip is now circulating again on social media.

Bake Off fans stunned as they spot massive change to this year’s series – did you notice it?
FOLLOWING a year away from our screens, a new set of bakers are back and all aiming to be crowned the next star baker.  The Great British Bake Off has opened its tent once more with Paul Hollywood and Pure Leith keeping a beady eye across the new batch of contestants as they aim to impress with their delicious creations.  However, some eagle-eyed fans of the show may have noticed a rather significant change to the show this year. Whilst it might not be new to everyone, new fans of the show may have been left confused to see the bakers and judges housed inside a different iconic white tent from the previous two seasons.  That’s because this series of Bake Off has returned to one of its older homes Welford Park in Berkshire, a Grade-I listed stately home which was in fact the home of the show from 2014 to 2019.  Covid restrictions forced the location of the show to change for 2020 and 2021, with it being situated in the more accommodating Down Hall in Essex, and as such newer fans of the show may have been left just exactly where they are.  Read More on Bake OffBAKED OFF Here's who has left The Great British Bake Off so fartent tears Bake Off's Prue Leith reveals moment she thought 'tearful' baker might quit The show, which is hosted by Matt Lucas and Noel Fielding, forced the contestants along with their families, the presenters and judges to form a Covid ‘super-bubble’ in order to protect them and keep them all safe for the past two series however now it is back to business as usual on the Channel 4 show.  Paul Hollywood expressed his delight to be in the former home of the show.  He told the Express: "I love filming at Welford and we've been away for a couple of years.
