BGT fans are furious over David Walliams’ ‘inappropriate’ joke during the semi-final… which even left Ant and Dec red-faced

David Walliams ruffled a few feathers on Friday evening as he made an inappropriate joke during the Britain’s Got Talent semi-final. 

And fans weren’t happy with the 50-year-old talent show judge, noting that he was being ‘inappropriate’ due to the family nature of the pre-watershed show. 

The joke even seemingly left presenters Ant and Dec to squirm, as the pair ignored the comment and asked David about the acts.

But interjecting, Simon claimed it wasn’t him, as he tried to pass the blame onto Alesha.

Offering a helping hand, Dec suggested: ‘Just dribble it down your chin’, to which David cheekily jested: ‘Not for the first time’.

While the comedian seemed pleased with his remark, Ant and Dec didn’t react, as they attempted to swiftly move on from the joke by asking what David was looking forward to this evening.

Another tweeted: ‘Did David Walliams REALLY just say that? Jeeeeeez’
