Simon Cowell gets up on stage for dance on Britain's Got Talent


Simon Cowell looks like he lapped up the attention after David Walliams dragged him on stage for a dance with one of the contestants from Britain's Got Talent.

It was the first time the show supremo had ever got on stage in its seven years on air.

Walliams said: "I got Simon on the stage this year for the first time in the history of Simon Cowell being on television.

"I had to use all my weight, because I probably weigh about twice as much as he does, but I dragged him up."

The performance from the auditions at the London Palladium will feature in the new series of the hit ITV show which starts this weekend.
