Oh dear! It comes following reports that David was said to have poked fun at Simon Cowell’s age on Britain’s Got Talent, but the gag was believed to have been cut from the final edit
But it appeared David, who is known for taunting Simon, went too far when he made the joke at Simon’s expense while talking to dance troupe Born to Perform.
He reportedly quipped: ‘Are you a fan of Simon Cowell? Does he look like your grandad?’
It is understood that Simon cut David’s jibe from the final edit of the Britain’s Got Talent episode, which aired on Saturday night.
A TV source told The Sun that Simon did not appear offended when the joke was first made, adding: ‘It’s odd the joke was taken out of the final cut as David has made far cheekier gags about Simon and they’ve stayed in.’

MailOnline has contacted Britain’s Got Talent, Simon Cowell and David Walliams’ representatives for comment.
David often makes jibes at Simon’s expense on the show and the pair are known for their on-screen repartee.
Simon recently hit back at a joke David made about his ‘gastric band’ as he cheekily suggested that the funnyman has had a hair transplant.
The music mogul, 62, hit back at the Britain’s Got Talent judge’s previous remarks by making a subtle dig, suggesting David, 50, had received the procedure.
In an interview with The Mirror, Simon was asked if the judges had changed over 10 years on the ITV talent show.
‘You’ve obviously lost weight naturally!’ It comes after David Walliams has playfully joked Simon Cowell (left) shed 20lbs with a gastric band (both pictured in 2020)
He replied: ‘Actually, everyone seems to look identical to when we started. David seems to have more hair, funny that. Maybe he’s got a new hairdresser.’
David – who is known for taunting Simon – admitted that fans enjoy his cheeky remarks directed at his fellow judge.
‘Every single day when someone recognises me on the street, they say, ‘Oh, we love it when you have a go at Simon’,’ he said.
‘It seems to be the key thing people really like… so if I didn’t give him a hard time, I think people would be disappointed.’

He was reminiscing on a Simon-lookalike auditionee, who appeared in Saturday’s episode, during a recent press conference for the show.
Retorting with a dig, the media mogul, 62, threw shade at the ‘desperate’ children’s author for ‘telling his followers’ to vote for him when nominated for awards.
Speaking about the uncanny magician, the record executive admitted: ‘I wasn’t thrilled. He was what I would call probably a semi professional and we liked it because we have a lot of little magic acts, like playing cards.
‘His was very big and I popped out of nowhere but our audience loves magic acts. That wasn’t my favourite part of the show, though.’
The Little Britain star soon chimed in: ‘You need to behave. He could only be your double if he had some plastic surgery,’ before Simon let slip: ‘I was thinking that.’

A cheeky David added: ‘Also a gastric band,’ before his co-star insisted: ‘I haven’t got a gastric band!’
The children’s author joked: ‘I’m not saying you have, you’ve obviously lost weight naturally.’
David went on to quip that Simon had gone under the knife in order to achieve his age-defying visage.
He said: ‘He looks younger and younger every year, I don’t know how he does it,’ with an irritated Simon hitting back: ‘It’s called exercise and eating well, David.’
And it was previously reported that Simon ‘exploded’ at David Walliams during filming for the Britain’s Got Talent auditions after he made a lewd joke.

Sources claimed the music mogul berated the comic for his cheeky comment in reference to a contestant, noting the programme is supposed to be ‘a family show’.
According to The Sun, contestant handsome Tim Jones took to the stage dressed in police uniform for his audition, leading David to joke: ‘Arrest me now!’
As Tim began to explain his talent the cheeky judge interrupted: ‘Is it getting your c*** out?’
Simon was quick to interject as he ordered David to apologise which only fuelled David who then added: ‘Do you swing it around?’
Furious Simon exclaimed: ‘Get out, get out, this is supposed to be a family show!’

Turning to address the audience the BGT creator added: ‘When we have a break we’ll make him sit on his own for ten minutes.’
An audience member told the publication: ‘It was clear that David was sailing close to the wind with his jibes. Then he went too far. Simon was visibly angry with him and exploded.’
The guest explained that David had been making jibes at Simon all day before he pushed it too far with the gag.
