First reported by The Guardian, the comments were part of a leaked transcript seen by the newspaper, taken from a recorded show at the London Palladium in January 2020.

It is understood that it was picked up by the microphones on the referees’ desk in the center of the hall.

In a statement, Walliams said, “These were private conversations that — like most conversations with friends — were never meant to be shared. However, I’m sorry.”

Thames TV, the production company behind Britain’s Got Talent, said in a statement that the language used was “inappropriate” and that those involved were “reminded of their responsibilities”.

ITV said it did not condone the language and had “spoken to the producers” about the incident.
