David Walliams hints he's quitting Britain's Got Talent after final year of his contract in 2019

David Walliams hints he's quitting Britain's Got Talent after final year of his contract in 2019

In a new interview with Heat magazine, the comedian – who has been on the talent show since 2012 – revealed revealed he only has one more year left on his contract.

And he's yet to sign a new deal with BGT boss Simon Cowell – so this year could be his last.

He told the mag: "I have one more year, and then my contract is up. [After that?] We shall see."

David, 47, recently appeared on The X Factor, where he assisted Robbie Williams at Judges' Houses and admitted he agreed with people who didn't think he was qualified for the job.

He said: "That's absolutely right – I know nothing about music. I like to listen to pop music.

"But, having watched it avidly for years, I have always wanted to be on The X Factor.

I don't know why. I kept thinking, 'How can I be on it?'

"I was thinking of auditioning but then thought, 'Oh, OK, I could just be a random person at Judges' Houses' but Sinitta had that role wrapped up for a long time."

"Originally I was supposed to be Simon Cowell's special friend but then he decided he wanted, like, 100 special friends at his house, even though he actually has no friends.

"So I thought, rather than just be one of 100 people at Simon's house, I would rather be Robbie's one special friend."

David recently teased Little Britain is set for a major comeback 11 years after it was last on our screens.

He hinted that a new series could be in the works after burying the hatchet with former co-star Matt Lucas.

He said: "I would like to return to it. I would like to do a live show again, I think that would be fun."
