Britain’s Got Talent star says David Walliams is the biggest ‘diva’ on ITV show

Former Britain’s Got Talent finalist Lucy Kay has revealed David Walliams is the biggest “diva” on the judging panel, even more so than his female co-stars.

The 31-year-old singer rose to fame on the ITV talent competition back in 2014, and it’s fair to say her life has turned upside down since she took part on the show.

With the guidance of Amanda Holden, Alesha Dixon, head judge Simon Cowell and the 51-year-old comic, the brunette beauty was able to storm her way to the live finals.

Eight years after her time on the reality show came to an end, the opera singer continues to delight audience with her delightful singing voice, most recently in the role of Snow White for the Middleton Arena pantomime this year.

Now, in an exclusive interview with Daily Star, Lucy has revealed which judge is the biggest “diva” from the star-studded panel on the reality show.

When asked who is the biggest “diva” on the show, the songstress immediately replied “David Walliams” without hesitation.

She went on: “I've heard things but you never know. He's so funny and so kind, but I can imagine because of that, he lives up to that huge diva expectation.

“He would enjoy being the diva out of all the girls actually so I think it would be him.”

The starlet went on to reveal to reveal that Simon Cowell isn’t actually as stern and strict as he appears to be on the show and credited him for her success on the talent competition.

Lucy went on: “Simon was so kind, because he knew what he was doing on that programme.

"I had a different song planned for the final and then the day before the show the producers called me and said Simon wants you to sing Nessun Dorma and I said, ‘This is the night before the final and that’s a man song’.

“I was a little upset because I’d spent the week learning another song and doing all the staging and I was really confident with it.

“But he said it’s totally up to you, on your head be it, but people don’t know this song that you want to sing but people know the Nessun Dorma and then I was like, ‘Yeah he is probably right’.

She continued: “I did it and I do believe I got to second place because of his comments that he wanted to change the song.”

The singer went on to suggest that the music mogul had changed his onscreen persona following the birth of his son Eric earlier that year.

Lucy explained: “As soon as his son was born which was on our season of Britain’s Got Talent, he completely changed and he then started to lay back on the tyrant attitude that he had.

“I just saw nothing but support from him and if there was anything to do with children you would start to see him getting emotional which we’ve never seen before.”
