‘He seems to have more hair!’ Simon Cowell drops cheeky transplant dig at David Walliams as he hits back at the comedian’s gastric band comments
The music mogul, 62, has 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.

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 – said: ‘Every single day when someone recognises me on the street, they say, ‘Oh, we love it when you have a go at Simon’.
The duo are known for their banter on camera, as they got back and forth teasing each other and arguing.
David added: ‘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.’

It comes after David playfully joked that Simon lost 20lbs with the help of a gastric band.
He was reminiscing on a Simon-lookalike auditionee, who will appear 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.’
