David Walliams branded Simon Cowell "cruel" during a chat with Lorraine Kelly on her ITV daytime show.

The Britain's Got Talent judge was on the show to plug his new book, appearing with her adorable dog, but Lorraine couldn't help asking about his recent birthday.

David turned 50 in August, and Elton John even performed three songs at the star-studded event.

But one person was notably absent – Simon Cowell.

The comedian said: "He didn't come to my birthday. He didn't send me a card or anything.

"He likes to keep me hanging, he knows I love him more when he treats me cruelly."

David was on the show with his Border Terrier Ernie, who was perched on his knee and loving the cameras – although it seems he was a little tired.

The adorable pooch kept yawning as the camera zoomed in on him, with David joking it was because Professor Brian Cox had been on the show earlier.

Lorraine, who also has a Border Terrier, called Angus, gushed over David's four-legged friend and it sounds like the feeling was mutual.

Whenever the camera focussed on Ernie, David put on a deep, Cockney geezer voice and pretended to speak to Lorraine as his dog.

Lorraine was struggling to keep her composure – but luckily she won't have had to worry about any comedy-induced accidents.

Earlier in the show, the 61-year-old spoke to a comedian who is hoping to tackle incontinence in both men and women.

She took Lorraine through a pelvic floor exercise, and Lorraine seemed to be an expert.

Elsewhere, Lorraine paid tribute to her husband Steve, who was celebrating his birthday.

She flashed up an image on-screen of the two of them together surrounded by penguins, with Lorraine telling viewers it was from a trip they took to Georgia.

The loved-up couple – who have been married for almost 30 years – could be seen smiling wide as a huge colony of penguins around them and in the background.

They looked happy despite the cold weather and snow around them, as they wrapped up warm in red coats and wool hats.

Lorraine airs weekdays at 9am on ITV
