BRITAIN’S Got Talent is set to get more bizarre on Saturday night as David Walliams dresses up as a giant golden buzzer.
But it doesn’t go down well with Simon Cowell, 62, giving the comedian a cheeky whack on the head.
The hilarious moment kicks off when hosts Ant and Dec spot that the golden buzzer is missing.
Simon exclaims: “We need the golden buzzer.”
Equally as confused as the audience, Amanda Holden and Alesha Dixon scans the room for the buzzer.
But little do they know that funnyman David, 50, had planned an epic entrance dressed as the shiny button.
Wearing a gold tin foil cone around his waist, the star is gradually lowered from the ceiling on a rope.
He yells: “I’m right here.”
Carrying a confetti canon and high-kicking his way across the stage, David was thrilled to be the centre of attention.
David then demanded Simon to press the shiny buzzer attached to his head.
The music mogul happily obliged and gave David a light slap on the head.
The audience were in fits of laughter as David cheekily sprayed Simon in the face with gold confetti.
It comes after fans were delighted with Keiichi Iwasaki’s magic skills last week.
He is headed straight to the semi-finals after Ant and Dec picked him to be their Golden Buzzer, and viewers are pleased he doesn’t have a sob story and think his personality helped him cinch it.
Over the years, contestants often have a moving reason for doing the show, or some secret heartache.
Commenting on how refreshing he is to watch, one person wrote: “No sob story, no dramatic event, no gimmick. Just a pure entertainment that make us smile. For giving us something so pure after all these years, he deserved the golden buzzer.”
A second remarked: “He was brilliant, definitely deserved the golden buzzer, no sob story, just pure fun.”
While a third added: “I love him, pure magic, his personality is amazing. We need more people like him in this world. Thank you for putting a smile on my face. I hope he wins.”
His audition video has already racked up over four million views on YouTube.
Despite the praise there has been some backlash about him taking part because it’s not his first stint on a talent show.
The street magician also auditioned for Italy’s version in 2016, Spain’s in 2019 and Bulgaria’s in 2021, while also auditioning last year for Germany’s Das Supertalent.
Keiichi even made it all the way to the semi finals of Italia’s Got Talent, and performed the same ring trick that he pulled Alesha Dixon on stage for.
And on Bulgaria’s version, he also scored a golden buzzer.
The furore aside, Keiichi left the judges and audience gobsmacked as he invited judge Alesha to assist him in a mind-blowing illusion.
